    I really expected (hoped) this thread to be spammed with high elf transmogs. I’m disappointed. I want to see everyone’s high elf pride while I wait at work to make my own!

    Yeah, it's kind of weird after all the months of hype. Even on my server, there aren't many players around barbershops. Guess not many people decided to resub.

    While I can't speak for everyone, I think for many its just too little, too late. I'm glad everyone has them now, but some copy pasted textures and things that should have been in SL from the get go wont bring me back. Lifes too short to spend it pining for a game dev to click and drag some textures.

    Alleria's tattoo's aren't "high" elf aesthetic, they are ranger aesthetic which the blood elves have too.

    That said, I would go for the Felblood, Light and Wretched choices.
    Wretched options could give blood elves more a more starved appearance, clawlike hands and feet, orbs growing from the back, black mouths (and give Nightborne more Wretched appearances).
    Felblood would obviously just be updated HDified felblood elves appearances, black bird-like wings, horns from the forehead, clear fangs, different skintones as seen in Wretched NPC's.
    Light would be easiest imho, Light tattoo's that's basicly it. Sorry Light users!

    I would like more magic effects on the elf races in general, void elves more void effects, nightborne more arcane effects etc.

    - Entropic Embrace: Either give the option to make it a Permanent state or give skin options that closely resemble it
    - Tattoos, both Magister-themed (the second-in-command of the Ren'dorei is a Magister...) and Farstrider-themed, emanating Void energy
    - Unique hair effects, "astral hair" so to say
    - Unique Corruption effects, like eyes resembling the Eye of N'Zoth, or the option to have a "third" eye on the forehead that resembles an Eye of N'Zoth; perhaps an option to have half the face "scarred" and "distorted" similar to Zuraal the Ascended from the Seat of the Triumvirate dungeon
    - Unique skin colour where you can have patches of dark skin and patches of fair skin
    - Unique hand effects similar to the ones the Nightborne are getting, but with Void energy instead of Arcane
    - More jewelry options; necklace, armbands, bracelets, like the Blood elves got; also bandages similar to the Ethereals (the Ren'dorei were doomed to become just like the Ethereals before Alleria intervened)
    - Utilizing the Mechagnome mechanic, give the option to have a "tentacle-arm" similar to the Faceless Ones

    This is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of customization.
    In a shocking fucking turn of events I agree with 90% of what you said in this post.

    Okay so there's already a problem right off the bat.

    Nightborne: 3 pages of customization
    LF Draenei: 3 pages of customization
    Hm Tauren: 3 pages of customization

    Void elves: 1 page of customization

    This must be a joke right?

    I've made my Void Elf Warrior into a High Elf and he does look pretty cool.

    But, everytime I do log onto him, I do want to swap back to my Blood Elves.

    Ah thanks

    And how do you upload them to here? Whenever I try, I've got to forward a link, but it never truly works.

    Yes
    But until yesterday evening the add-on wasn't updated for the be patch and some lua errors pop up while using it. But normally this is one of the best add-ons around

    So (when the addon is playing ball) you just upload the screenshot to imgur and then paste the link here?

    It's rude to edit quotes.

    I don't think felblood would be a good option. Maybe the Blood Elves could lose the Sunwell again, I think the Blood Elf fantasy has been too diminished by them having it back, if they loose it again, they could be using alternative powers as fel instead.

    That said, I would go for the Felblood, Light and Wretched choices.
    Wretched options could give blood elves more a more starved appearance, clawlike hands and feet, orbs growing from the back, black mouths (and give Nightborne more Wretched appearances).
    Wretched Blood Elves aren't a starved state precisely, they get to this stage by consuming too much magical energy at once, arcane energy more specifically, it's like a crackhead that's very deep in shit.

    Felblood would obviously just be updated HDified felblood elves appearances, black bird-like wings, horns from the forehead, clear fangs, different skintones as seen in Wretched NPC's.
    As I said, that would be a bit extreme, but maybe some fel tattoos, scars, some scales, but not like demon

    Light would be easiest imho, Light tattoo's that's basicly it. Sorry Light users!
    Yeah why not.

    I would like more magic effects on the elf races in general, void elves more void effects, nightborne more arcane effects etc.
    That would be so cool.

    Man, people keep going on about how the restoration of the Sunwell was a mistake, and for what reason? The race evolved. The Sunwell's been restored in real time now than it was destroyed, and their phase of fel/desperation was actually brief in the overall history of the race now.
    Did they start there? Yes. Are they that now? Absolutely not. The Blood Elves have, still are, and will always be the quintessential paladin race of the Horde.

    Holy theme customization makes the most sense for them going forwards, and if people aren't a fan of that, they can either not use those options, or they have another option with the more chaotic/gothic void elves, if they can stomach going Alliance. (Which is somehow the end of the world to some people to get what they want.)

    You can play a High Elf on either faction, but it's extremely clear with the story that those elves have split off with a major themeatic. Alliance has Void/Gothic traits, and the Horde has Holy/"Royal" traits to them. They mirror each other, and there's been hints of a Light vs Void plot coming.

    Also, sorry, red eyes absolutely suit Void Elves way more than Blood Elves. (Red is a void colour in both WoW, and across media in general.)

    And San'layn are not Horde. They failed to join the Horde, betrayed them after Talanji stated she already didn't trust them (do Alliance quests), and the Void Elves already cover a lot of the requests san'layn players have had like hairstyles, and the eye colours except red. If those options are going to anybody, it's likely them because they have almost the entire kit covered anyways, and you can make one on retail now if you can live without red eyes - especially as a DK.
    When it comes down to ease of implementation, if it's as simple as one eye colour, and a bonus of a single ear shape and maybe tints to existing skins, it's viable.



    Also, Dar'khan was scourge, had nothing to do with the void, yet played a major part in Umbric's backstory? Either they were going to be san'layn and it got changed in development, or there's a huge opening right there for a subrace recruitment.

    They're about as "blood elf" as a void elf is, but the void elves actually can use red - a void colour - to make them a subrace with very little work compared to blood elves, who'd need to have void elf assets to make it work for them.

    I used Imgur and then get the real link not embedded or whatever needs to end with .png

    Then include it here with the image button in this touch text editor we write in
