    It would be nice and appreciated, but it's probably something they'd do post-addition. I think Ion spoke about even eventually adding a quest or so down the line to explain the additional race customizations the first time (when they added WH dwarves, diff troll tribes, etc).

    True yeah but that's why I say let people cope. Some folks will plant their feet in the mud and stay there.

    according to the developers high elf is a race and they are playable in horde and alliance as customization of void elf and blood elf.

    That's hardly what they said, and considering this is an evidently alliance-centric High Elf thread, you're not being the most genuine person.

    This is another place where there was a race, High Elves, in the game which hadn't really been represented on player characters. Blood Elves were the closest, but had felt green eyes. It was an opportunity where we had a number of elven races, and we could tie it back to their roots, letting players choose where they want to align and what fantasy to play out. We did have a lot of discussion about it, ultimately we might do more in the future, but for now we're providing the option to have a few High Elf customizations available.

    but if you think it's wrong that I use this thread then I'll make another one that says high elves horde

    What a great idea. +1

    Mod note: This is now the officially designated High Elf discussion thread. Please keep all discussion regarding this race in here.

    Let's not be obtuse.

    With Dragonflight, I do think they are going to tell the High Elf story through both Blood Elves and Void Elves. They carry different angles on Thalassian Elves.
    The Night Elves also make the Hinterlands High Elves moot because everything those high elves do, the Night Elves do it better.

    If that's true than where's the Updated Night Elven Buildings and such by now besides the Tents and Boat?
    High Elves and Wildhammer Dwarves are finally playable in the Alliance. XD

    Counter argument:
    Why are those High Elves using Night Elven buildings as their holdout?

    Plus - look at Darkshore, Val'Sharah and Azsuna.

    was actually expecting the Night Elves to help them in their anti-arcane meditations or even offer to bring a moon well there
    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

    don't think they will, the shen'dralar may most likely have gotten access to the alliance and kirin tor mana crystals; besides the lor'danel high elves are going away from arcane at all

    I mean still is kind of less given the fact Blizzard hasn't touched on rest of the Night Elven Buildings from Moonglade, Mount Hyjal, Whole of Ashenvale, and etc.

    Totally agree with you.

    High elves are horde and alliance, so you are in the right thread.

    And yet this thread clearly still is about High Elves as part of the alliance, not the overall race. Wouldn't be having this issue if a thread was about Alliance Pandaren?

    The fact that after years, now somehow people are having trouble understanding this is an alliance high elf thread, is just kinda weird.

    And I'm being genuine about that, we could have a thread about Thalassians in general, I'd be into it, but this thread specifically was never about that as it focused since its inception heavily about high elven playability on the alliance.

    Meh you are stuck in the past bro. Move on and accept its both sides for some time, so obviously people are free to talk about it here. No need to create another thread, I hope ypu are not indirectly suggesting this with your sigh.

    I'm not the keeper of this thread so where it ends up doesn't fall on me, and truth be told I really have no deep skin on it.

    But it is weird that what once a thread about alliance alligned thalassian elves has become this.

    Like yeah, I'd rather have a thread for all thalassian things, as I do love Blood Elves, and I did liked the specific purview of this one. But again, if this thread becomes that, it is what it is.
