    Defensive? Lol I only made a summary of helf history xD. If anything the designs suggested would sooner steal wildhammer clan aesthetics.

    It's a shame that Wildhammer may be in the same boat as High Elves

    https://www.pcgamesn.com/world-of-wa...-azeroth-races

    We have Dark Irons, but what about the last remaining dwarf clan, the Wildhammers?

    It's always possible, but we don't have any immediate plans to include the Wildhammer clan.
    That's pretty much the same answer that was given for High Elves. Kind of sucks that Alliance allied races are by nature pretty similar so that's sort of a big clash to the AR system already if it is indeed made purely to get new races out to the factions.

    Means Alliance potentially will end up with lots of "new different races"

    Blizzard should call them "Random Races" for Alliance since it looks like the races that have been allied with the Alliance the longest aren't being added. The whole Twilight Hinglands questline was a perfect introduction for them by uniting the Wildhammer clans under the Alliance banner.


    edit: If they don't have plans to add Wildhammer (although lore suggests they could alter the model, make them taller) then they should at least make the skins available as customization options for Bronzebeards just like they did with Yellow eyes for Blood Elves and the giropractor for the Orcs.

    oh, poor you, not getting the copy paste of the normal dwarf race with just tattoos different, will need to stick with the bad new dark iron dwarf totally different from the normal dwarfs with fucking awesome looking and flame hair

    like, you actually get a dwarf already, you will not getting another so soon, just like any other race variation, this is not some blizzard biasin the future they obviouslly are a option

    the funny thing is all of the alliance players would be complaining if they get wildhammer instead of dark iron cause it would not be different or cool enough "just a copy paste horde bias BabyRage"

    The new idle and the light eyes aren't from other factions of BE or orcs, instead, bodypainting and what body differentiations Wildhammer has aren't proper of Bronzebeards, is not a great comparative.

    Eww, dwarves in the horde, no thanks, with all the reason would still be a big stretch, and not had that much sense. It is easy and lroe friendly put then in the alliance, who asked then

    I never said it meant anything, it's just strange and random and suspicious how they'd rename it from Jaina's Angels to Auric's Angels (Auric is the High Elf from Allerian Stronghold in Outland) could mean nothing like you said but it is rather suspicious that they'd randomly change it to Auric.

    Don't mind him, it's just a one-eyed dude.

    Idk how much important alliance expedition NPCs are, i just see them as replacements for players so it being a hint on playable high elves is not that right to me.

    Wildhammer Dwarves + High Elves as an allied race for Alliance would be fantastic! Also they fixed Frostfencers eyes, so they glow blue now and not green. Alliance Expedition NPC'S usally have races apart of the Alliance first playable, and now High Elf being the only current on not playable. I mean I just find it strange that they renmaed Jania's Angels to Auric's Angels, he hasn't been seen since Wrath. Could they be reintroducing him again? It's a bit random to use His name and for him not to play a part in BFA. Not saying it confirms High Elves, but it's a tad suspicious don't you think? I don't think blizz would of just randomly renamed Jaina's Angels to a guy who has not been seen since Wrath. so maybe teasing something but who knows it;s beta.

    (Ilove that they got renamed though :P)

    Yeah, it is a HE and Auric is the name of a HE, but it could be the name of another dude, you know i prefer to have more hints instead of just coincidences.

    Yet those are the two groups Blizzard has specifically ruled out. High Elves were more emphatically ruled out than Wildhammer, but I reckon Wildhammer weren't considered because any perceived cultural differences were insufficient to justify an allied race when the physical differences are non-existant.

    And no, it's not suspicious at all for the rename of the island team. It's just another example of the pro High Elf community looking at patterns in tea-leaves and seeing the potential for playable High Elves, conveniently ignoring the development team saying very plainly it isn't going to happen.

    Sorry had to make a account and reply to this but after reading a lot of your posts you clearly hate High elves but you and a few of the other posters here constantly hang out in one where people are just trying to have a discussion just so you can try and get the last word in.

    Question Why don't you just leave them to it? They're not harming anyone by discussing something they'd wish to have even if it may not be possible.

    Also have you ever heard of bait and switch? Maybe thats why it was worded the way it was you don't specifically know these things unless you said it yourself to many other posters are an Blizzard employee.

    The discussion is not limited to a pro High Elf bubble. If you want a pro High Elf bubble I suggest you join their discord.

    Because I believe playable High Elves undermine the faction identity of the Horde and the Blood Elves. And I won't 'leave them too it' for the same reason they won't stop, they hope to persuade Blizzard through the expression of their opinion and I want my opinion to be heard too. Which it was because Ion basically said everything on the matter I have ever wanted a Blizzard dev to say. So that felt good.

    Bait and switch? Ok, you got a laugh out of me. Yes, the developers are trying to trick us by publicly stating one thing whilst secretly planning to do another. I am sure they would just love everything they say in years to come to be challenged by people saying 'well you were secretly plotting High Elves so how can we be sure you aren't lying to us now?'

    Take off the tinfoil hat please. If they ever decide to do High Elves, which apparently is when someone figures out how to make High Elves non pale and non majestic, we will know about it. Until that time all we have is the near decade and a half of statements and lore saying it's not going to happen.
