    That's the thing! That NPC's use it just make it so weird that they didn't add it when they had the chance -now-

    So yeah, I'm waiting to see if they are going to bake new VE specific textures or will simply load out the BE ones like they do with skins. The fact they are separating tendrils makes think it will be the later.

    So if they make the hairstyles just "read" the BE texture, it means they could also load the "Dressing Room/NPC" black texture; the reason it can't be used right now is because it also blackens the tendrils: if tendrils and hair are read from different textures, then we "might" be getting Black hair as well!

    -No new customization options were planned for Shadowlands; that had led me to believe that AR's would get their pass on 10.0.

    -These got fast-tracked because of backlash. I think the VE specific customization options may be related to next expansion, so introducing them earlier might be downright spoilery, but most likely it would be because it's related to the passage of time itself.
    yup and that's yet another thing for the Blood Elf players to be mad with the (Alliance) High Elf players
    The Alliance gets the Horde's most popular race. The Horde should get the Alliance's most popular race in return. Alteraci Humans for the Horde!

    I make Warcraft 3 Reforged custom models that intends to fill the gaps in the Reforged campaign

    The hair colors are kind of a strange choice. 3 Shades of blonde instead of a black or a silver.

    Oh yeah, pretty much everyone has been baffled by the choices. Like EVERYONE was hoping for one color from each major shade (black, white, blonde, brown and red)

    Honestly red was the last one I thought they'd give us. Black, brown and silver would also be compatible with the blue skintones, too.

    10.0 will bring new Void customizations for Void Elves, and Kael'thas rejoining the Blood Elves by redeeming the San'layn thus giving BE's the "blood magic" aesthetic lol.

    Right??! it was hilarious that most people thought black and white would be the solid 2 options bhaha. So weird.

    I did notice that originally BE's didn't have black or white, so maybe it's related to that? All the hair colors we got are ones from their introduction.

    The Horde should definitely get Alteraci humans. I've been a supporter of adding them ever since I saw this thread:

    No, they shouldn't. The Horde does not need more races that will skew the faction imbalance even more.

    Horde players just do not get it. There's no equivalence here because you've been winning hard for years. The Alliance needs SOMETHING over you to reset the imbalance and improve the health of the game.

    I've never thought this line was more appropriate here but... check your fucking privilege.

    Did you just assume my faction?

    But yeah, what the alliance needs is for Raid Grouping to become factionless. It doesn't matter what you give the Horde or Alliance at this point, the imbalance is just insurmountable.

    Yes and no. Hairstyles still remain the same. You just add another layer of customization to it. Just like night elves have vines/leaves and draenei have jewelery. There will still be no fresh new hairstyles.

    I think this will favor mostly female hairstyles, most of them look really good without tentacles. Male hairstyles on the other hand are in more need of work, but eventually, it still opens up like 2 new hairstyles available for my character.

    I mean it's great change indeed, but I wouldn't say it provides whole new set of hairstyles. Most of the hairstyles will not look vastly different without tentacles, especially male hairstyles. Now give us option to use braids in place of tentacles too. I can imagine some of these hairstyles being used for blood elves with braid options then as well (tentacles does not make much sense for them).

    No human potential in my faction, pls. I would rather take mok'nathal or forest trolls from Revantusk tribe for complete WC2 feel. San'layn or straight back forsaken would be fine tho.

    I thought Ion discussed this as something they are working on a while back during a SL dev interview. Has there been any updated info on it?

    You are certainly entitled to your opinion, but I think they are a cool idea. Although Mok'nathal, forest trolls, and San'layn are all ideas I support as well.

    I don't know if I *love* the idea of Alteraci humans in the Horde. I don't dislike it, but in terms of belonging to the faction I feel something is missing. Beyond War2 they really haven't been a thing in terms of Horde history, so there are just so many other races I would rather have on the Horde that DO have that continued story and relevance, such as Forest Trolls and Mok'nathal (and even San'layn, with their very recent participation on the 4th War and strong connection to the Blood Elves)

    So yeah, to the point I would prefer so many other races before, I'd rather have neutral Alteraci mmm.

    On the second thought, that orange hair with void skin gives me "N'zoth" vibes actually. I think coupled with correct tentacled hairstyle and transmog and we can achieve pretty decent old god shenanigans.

    Even though gameplay reasons forced me into the Horde for the first time this expansion, I'm so happy High Elves can 100% be realized with the tentacle hide/light hair tones now. I remember that I used to say I'd not race change my human mage to anything else except for an Alliance High Elf. This dream is now possible.

    Oh yeah, tho I find it unexpected, I do think it's a color that actually looks very good on the VE skin tones. Is just more that as far as "you are getting only 5 natural hair colors" is just weird how limited the choices themselves are.

    The blonde/red head hair colors look great, but not so much on darker skinned Void Elves. Was counting on brown/black/white hair colors to better match the darker skin tones I like to use on my void elves.
