Do they have taboos against some types? Or do they see all the possibilities of every school? Pretty much a Night Elf to Blood Elf spectrum, with all other derivative elves somewhere in between.

    I do think both Blood Elves and Nightborne could learn druidism, but I do think it would be less spiritual and more scholarly than the NE version, more of the "Botanist" Archetype.

    Urgh, I really wanna know how the hair textures textures are going to work!!
    Not even sure you'll see the non tentacle hairs in the first build considering how they talked about it.

    Oh I'm talking mostly about the textures -yeah, I don't think we will be seeing the non tentacly hair this build, but who knows-

    My doubt is whether they will copy the BE hair colors into new textures with the tendril, or if they will make the hairstyles themselves just read the BE hair textures -just as they do with the skin tones-

    For example, if they do load the BE texture as is, it means that the tentacles would be separated from the rest of the hairstyle, loading a different material; which would work in tandem with the idea of separating hair from tendrils actually.

    Kinda like they did with the jewelry who used to be on the skin tone; since they made the VE model load BE skin textures, they just made a new jewelry texture; just like that, but now all hairstyles could use one VE hair texture to load the tendril and it's effects, and load hair color separately.

    If that would to be the case, I'd hope the hair bangle would be moved to the jewelry texture; that way, like with draenei jewelry, they could add different colors to it in the future!

    You may be right, but it's also possible we'll see it in the first build since the way they described it seems like an on/off switch like the night elf vines option (which already exists so the tech is already there).

    Kinda, but it does require splitting the hairstyle meshes, so that would take some time, so who knows.

    But, I keep thinking of it, if they DO load the BE hair textures rather than making new ones, it would make sense they split the tendrils so they load a default VE hair texture. So adding the new hair colors and separating the tendrils would be part of the same process.

    Ooooh! I want them all!
    yess, same. I made so many of these, but the only difference in the rest is the color of the gem hehe

    Well, they did say this week, so.

    Probably best to not think about it.

    I don't understand the red/orange choices... They should have added the darker black options, brown, and blue hair options instead.

    We already had blue? And Blizzard just added a true black and a normal brown that’s pretty dark.

    The blues I was referring to were the DK variants, do VE have those options? I can't recall.

    I would love the light blue DK color, I know we have two dark blues already, but I don’t know how they compare to the DKs.

    I'm done campaigning. This answers the last of my wants. I don't really care if void elves get paladins or not. I have nothing against those who want to ask for it, but I'm not going to be a supporter of that particular request. I'll just quietly stay out of the way of those who want to try for it and wish you good luck getting the option you want.

    Yeah I feel the same.

    I doubt I’d ever play one, but I think it would complete the “high elves in all but name.” The last thing I actually want is a way to disable or color shift the entropic embrace effect, but that’s very minor. Everything else, even the light blue DK hair which I love, are just nice to haves.

    You didnt fully "get them". You're still a void ridden elf who turns into a void being in combat. Being unable to be a paladin solidifies this.


    Sorry guys but no, you're still not pure high elves, that's only on team red, teehee. And don't bother asking for velf paladins since it'd be as senseless as maghar warlocks.

    High Elf Paladins aren't even a big thing anyway.

    I think pretending you're playing a helf despite what the UI tells you is more of a "hard cope".

    Oh, sorry. You're right. I guess I'll go play the race that quite literally reads "Blood Elf" to get my "High Elf" fix instead.

    Yeah buddy. Keep on raging and spamming this thread because you lost. We really don't care. I'm still a High elf, and if you don't like it, that's your problem
