    Indeed, blonde hair kinda looks awesome with the tentacles; the contrast between yellow and purple is just *chef's kiss*

    The blue silver one looks good!
    Meh... Blood elves are Fel elves. Their racials are about forcibly stealing magic.

    Actually if we wanted to be precise, a further divide into high elves and light elves would be the more precise. But, they just exist as say... a sub race of the other two.
    Kind of like the wildhammer exist on the regular bronzebeard dwarf.

    While I get where you are coming from, the leadership of the Silver Covenant has repeated again and again, for decades, that Silvermoon was there home, they still consider it their home, they will never relinquish their claim on it (weak as it is) and they have fought and died to protect it too.

    The leadership of the void elves has echoed this sentiment, and also will keep considering Silvermoon their home.

    And both factions have expressed the desire to "return Silvermoon to the Alliance", one way or the other.

    A Dath'remar wouldn't suit their style because the exile of the Highborne happened after the Highborne lost their power, their prestige and their cities and the entire night elven people underwent a cultural shift from arcane empire to nature dwellers, something neither the Silver Covenant nor the void elves have undergone.

    So unless both of those factions do a 180 on their repeated goals, wishes and dreams, it's not something that I'll see happen. (Especially since Alleria Windrunner is the wife of the Regent of Stormwind, the most powerful position within the Alliance at the moment and the Regent has admitted to wanting to see what more former Alliance holdings they can reclaim!).

    It is, but the same can be said for most races. Silver Covenant lives in Dalaran, yet they somehow field mostly Farstriders and Ranger, Draenei field mostly Paladins and Priests (with the odd Broken Draenei Shaman), and night elves field Priests of Elune and Druids.

    Humans field everything in the meantime and "Alliance" High Command consists of Anduin Wrynn, Genn Greymane, Jaina Proudmoore, Mathias Shaw and Halford Wyrmbane, no non-human insight.

    VE and NB would be the perfect choices both for lore and dev reasons; the assets are already there, and it's as likely that BE DH train NB, as it is for NE DH to look into VE's for a more "open" pool of potential initiates.

    But if like new DK, new DH's could be trained, I think that opens opportunities to several, if not all, races, cause we kinda have seen great warlocks from pretty much every species (also a Feltotem DH would be amazing)

    Blood elves are not fell elves, it's a common mistake people make. The most they had some fel radiation, they never went all the way. Fel elves are like the felborne or these actual fell elves from the Sunwell raid to be precise.

    Nah light elves is just a name that went it's own life on sites like these, also the place were they were first called like this(I know it's those light elves with brown skin from some other game). I like the name blood elf, I hope the name stays if that ever becomes some topic. The sunwell is what made it so and appearntly not every blood elf is infused with it according to what we see ingame. Hell, they even forgot about the whole cleansing, since golden eyes which was an appearent reaction of it, was only given to blood elves in bfa, the cleansing was in 2007, suddenly calling them differently doesn't make much sense and neither is a subrace of them.

    I don't think we would need further diving in that sense, both groups you namecalled already excist and they have their costumization options already available, its more flavour of elves we already have and since one of them is available on both sides it should probably stay like this, since it already was the best outcome to the whole high elf debate that went on a little to long. It's already a huge favor, since they were literally playable since 2007, so there you go.

    Nightborne hands sound pretty awesome! I hope we get our Alleria-inspired face tattoos!

    If they can do the hand magic effect for Nightborne then they can do it for Void elves too. Why limit it to just one race? I'd love to see Ren'dorei with their hands infused and overflowing with the Void. You can make the effect all astral-looking or simply void-y. The technology is getting there.

    I really wish the tentacle toggle changed the tentacles into braids instead of just removing them. If they have to rebuild the hairstyles anyways to fill in those holes with something else, braids make the most sense and would be the easiest to implement. Otherwise, you have some of the tentacle hairstyles with big bald spots that look terrible.

    I mean it's something that has been said for a long time, so I do hope they consider it down the lane.

    They should just add an NPC that lets you toggle off the racial visual effect, and finally bury the notion that Void Elves have to be Voidy.

    At the very least, they should fill those bald spots with more hair. Leaving them unfinished like that is not AAA game company quality at all.

    Did you notice last patch when they smoothed out the ponytail on the Flayer hairstyle and fixed the warped texture on the short Umbric hair? I really think that's pretty much what we will see for them done for now, until VE get a proper revamp probably next expansion.

    The fact that NB where LIKE THAT since they were introduced really tells us what's the level of polish and acceptable procrastination they are going for.

    Ah, I didn't notice. I'm glad they fixed that.

    So now it's just those empty spots on a few of the styles. It's more noticeable on some than others, like the elegance female style and the sorrow male style. The hair is just kinda levitating there. A braid would fit in there perfectly!

    But you're probably right about them being done for now. Although, it does seem like they got quite a bit less than LFD, HMT, or NB got. They all got new skin tones and hair colors like VE, but they also got other new stuff like hairstyles, tail options, and tattoos. NB even got glowy hands thrown in for good measure. Maybe VE need something else for icing on the cake? Like glowing Alleria tattoos, braids, or even both.

    I mean I do think VE will get a revamp, but laters; it's kinda obvious they aren't getting the same TLC than other AR's, all the stuff they have gotten are reused assets, or separated options for hair and tentacles.

    I believe there is a reason why VE's aren't being given new options right now, and that's possible lore related, given that it was pretty likely no AR's were going to get new stuff until 10.0 until they changed their mind.

    No new assets have been added to VE's, which is a stark contrast to the other 3 AR's that have gotten overall a pretty juicy revamp with several new customization options, so the fact that VE's don't have anything new in terms of development does make me believe the options we are getting now are to tide us over until that future revamp, but this is all speculation on my end.

    I think the reason why VE got reused assets is because
    A) Void elf/High elf fans have been pretty active in suggestions for High elf fantasy on void elves for long time
    B) it's the most easy thing they can do, they just transfer existing assets from BE to VE

    Seeing what they did with NB and LFD, I think we can expect something bigger for void elves too. I think it's time to properly expand their Void theme finaly, maybe we will get "starcursed" options for our hair and Entropic Embrace customization. Seeing that they followed feedback for Nightborne and are working on mana hands give me hope for void elves
