    If competently used the Silence can be stupendously useful. That is to say you shouldn't instantly blow it. The arcane resist is helpful for ..oh.. not dying. Plus Blood Elves are *easily* the most spectacularly handsome race, so thats +2 right there.

    God i miss the mana tap racical.. It was the only thing that made them feel like bloodelves, except the green eyes.. The arcane torrent(?) doesnt really make any sence now
    Anyone know why it was removed?

    Because it was fairly OP at the time.

    The Arcane resist (along with any other resistance racial) is useless in PvE and PvP.

    In PvP, any half-decent caster will be spell pen capped anyway, completely negating it, and in PvE it doesn't stack with the resistances granted by Kings or MotW, so it's again entirely useless. These racials were actually (somewhat) useful back when they were a miss chance; now they have absolutely no effect on anything that matters.

    I re-state that as the most beautifully handsome race, we've no right to complain. Additionally we have magic brooms.

    Because:
    -They don't like to be a cow.
    -They don't want to have tusks.
    -They don't want to be a zombie.
    -They don't want to be green, neither small or large.
    -They want to play a paladin.
    -They want to look decent in armor.
    -They want to have the most awesome capital ingame.
    -They want to have better lore.
    -Sooo many reasons, but it comes down to: They like it.

    I use a Rainbow Generator and shoot pretty colours at people. It's not quite a Blood Elf racial but it damn well should be.

    Me. Because when I kill someone who has a typical idea of male blood elves, it is oh so satisfying. Oh, and it's fun when people look at your name and think you're some little anime, weaboo fanboy who just meets all those awful BE male stereotypes. Maybe I am; maybe I'm not. But I'll still own your face and top your dps meter.

    And to the question about why they removed mana tap, it was a fun yet clunky mechanic. It used to be on a minute or two cooldown, and the charges it generated on you could stack three times. You had to stack that buff to three in order to get the full mana/energy return bonus when using arcane torrent. And, if you didn't mana tap three eligible targets close enough together, the buff would just fall off of you. So pretty much, arcane torrent was just an interrupt that you might get a little of your resources back from once and a while. Now it's surefire every time.

    *Edit*

    It had a 30 second cooldown. But the point still stands. :P

    I've always thought blood elves should get a polearm spec.
    Granted with polearm being basically only a a feral and hunter weap it should prob give something other then expertise

    A 2sec stun and 5% more HP isn't bad either. not at all. I agree, cannibalize sucks, but will of the forsaken is great.

    Undeads is the best HP in BGs / Leveling and WoTF is amazing in arena.

    RIP mana tap.

    I think our racials are fine, the major one is great. I feel naked without torrent.

    BASE health. As in, your health when you have no buffs and no armor (and thus no +stamina). No player race has 100k base health.

If sin'dorei (and quel'dorei) were so reliant on Sunwell why don't they have any racial spell related to it?
    They do have a 4th racial...only race in the game with ALL females
