Under influence of the well of eternity and titan machinery they evolved further to their current forms. Yaungol and Taunka were influenced by both the well and titan machinery in current day pandaria and Northrend. Tauren were closest to the well so mostly influenced by that.
    Ah, I'm at work and don't have my copies of "Chronicle" available - good to know, so I guess we add the Tauren to the list of mutated playable races.
    "The City Council announces the opening of a new Dog Park at the corner of Earl and Somerset, near the Ralph’s. They would like to remind everyone that dogs are not allowed in the Dog Park. People are not allowed in the Dog Park. It is possible you will see Hooded Figures in the Dog Park. Do not approach them. Do not approach the Dog Park. The fence is electrified and highly dangerous. Try not to look at the Dog Park, and especially do not look for any period of time at the Hooded Figures. The Dog Park will not harm you."

    My signature is fine. Just ask those people spamming the US forums looking for High Elves.
    Sure it is fine, but you can tell the US High Elves spammers that they got their High Elf version now on Alliance.

    Vulpera don't really look like something from a South Korean/Japanese MMORPG, most Asian RPGs just have humans with fox ears/tails, but these are just straight up anthropomorphic foxes.

    That makes it even worse.

    OT: I never could stand the "animal races" that were just humans with cat ears and tails, in either anime or games. Something about it just breaks my immersion, I can't really explain it.

    Considering a good portion of the Horde's playerbase is comprised of belves and the addition of nightborne will probably drastically increase the number of elves on the Horde, vulpera (if they can attract enough people) would be a breath of fresh air.

    Although we don't know anything about their culture yet, it would be cool if they were a nomadic shamanistic race, something like the Berbers/Amazigh or Bedouins. Or Maybe gypsies/romani?

    I don't see why the vulnerable HAVE to be a joke race just because they're diminutive animal people. Although knowing Blizzard...

    Pretty much agreed. Also, don't ever play FFXIV - there are a lot of female NPCs wearing little and dancing - so far from what I've noticed, they are 100% Catgirls.

    Well I think there is one lesson to be drawn from this for future MMOs that have two factions.

    Add elves and add catgirls/boys.

    But on to different factions.

    Population issue sorted.

    It almost sounds like you want to make a game where it's Asians & Weebs VS The world '.'

    There are three different types of High Elves now. High Elves, Blood Elves and Void Elves. Only the colored flavors are playable. Strawberry and Blueberry. I guess that makes Vereesa, Alleria and their people Vanilla.

    Wich again means your signature is incorrect. You can now also be High Elf on Alliance. Just another flavor. Blueberry.
    I resent that final remark .

    I think Void Elves are different enough from Blood Elves. They went through a transformation that changed their bodies and (it seems) their mindsets a bit. Plus, we haven't seen their combat forms in action yet. It's the reason why humans can be in one faction, and dead humans can be in the other; same start point, but a difference brought about by some sort of transformation. Same deal for Night Elves and Nightborne.

    I mean, at the risk of repeating myself I'd rather not have seen more stupid elves at all, they're omnipresent in the story as it is. But as it stands I'll tolerate the new guys because they're different enough.

    Look at this point as long as we don't get a second serving of vanilla I'm good with the whole thing.

    I really, truly wish this debate would end, everyone would be happy of the elves they got and we could move on to discussing vulpera or ogres or a host of other far more interesting Allied races than elf no.5 which is a clone of elf no.2.
