    Silver Covenant aren't a Race, they are a private military group.

    Allied races are reskins of existing races. Pretty much anything added to them (besides crazy horns like the Highmountain) will not be visible in full armor. Entirely new races take a lot of time and effort. I wouldn't expect those kinds of races as allied. Those would be whole new races, like ogres.

    Reskins for now, and the Silver Covenant seems like a great candidate, easy to implement, and lots of demand for it.

    The only elves I'd be down to see added to the game, at this point, are Nerubian Slave Elves. Some relict tribe of elves that were captured during the ancient wars against the Old Gods and dragged down into the Darkness to become a form of Necromantic Elves. Set them up as "Basically Drow" and give them the Pale Orc/Geist crawl around the dark places of the world.

    Not as an Allied Race, mind you. Just a new type of Elf for everyone to kill, together.
    When you are accustomed to privilege, equality feels like injustice.

    True, the race would be High Elves/Quel'dorei. Silver Covenant would be the lore/existing faction that would be joining the Alliance.

    Had Void Elves not been added, I think it definitely could have been a possibility.

    Not Bad. In fact I think the customization for the High Elves looks really nice. If I only have one criticism it would be the goofy the hairstyle one with blue tattoo high elf and another would be the green tattoo high elf.

    Other than that the Concept looks really nice.

    If they added forest Trolls at the same time then they'd have butchered Blood Elf Lore beyond belief and any fucks I give about WoW lore would be gone.
    Anti HEers don't go after High Elves. They go after Warcraft 2 Races as a Whole.

    There are Humans in the silver Covenant though. And they are loyal to Dalaran, which is a neutral nation.

    Only like 2 right? A bartender or something? Surely the high elves of the Silver Covenant joining would confuse no one.

    I think paint thing is not matching, neither hairstyles.

    There may be a place for more subtle and refined face paint, like Alleria one, which is nothing of a sort of what was in Warcraft 2.

    Warcraft 2 Elves were more of a slapdash thing from a more wild Blizzard days where lore was made on spot, things changed for the better since.

    Braids and dreadlocks are possibility as well. Something distinct from the super model hair the blood elves have. I also love the idea of very short military style shaved hair.

    They have designed things for the 1st before that are later actually used. I'd love to see an April 1st joke of High Elf designs to test the waters. That would be awesome! Great way to get feedback.

    My god. Just how many High Elf fanatics are out there? Can Blizzard pull another Theramore on High Elves entirely or something?

    Thanks! Any ideas for unique elements they could have? The Quel'dorei mount from the Argent Tournament could be updated with a new model. Where do you think their home base should be?

    What do you think they should do for their mount? How should their armor set be designed?

    This was an idea I had for the High elves aswell, it'd be a enough good way to set them to be different in appearance to the Blood elves if they ever were an Alliance Allied Race. Maybe retcon a slight taller height and/or athletic build to them too and if needed, different standing stance.

    Although if Blizzard ever went back to look at the customization for the original races, I'd like it if they also considered adding some blue/turquoise/purple/grey and perhaps gold eyed options for Belves to go with the future concept of the green eyes eventually wearing off at the presence of the Light purified Sunwell, and them practicing other schools of spell types in general.

    This is pretty much how high elves should, and hopefully will be introduced. Excellent renditions, but you could drop the crazy 80's hairdo's.

    I love the idea of a new standing animation. That would be distinct no matter what armor covered the character. New eye colors would be great. Love the ideas of gold and purple.

    I like choices. And my limit for them is set incredibly high on RPGs. MMORPGs included. The more allied races, the better.

    However, maybe some non-elves for the time being.

    Good god no more elves please.

    Yeah sure, let's give the Alliance another copy of the most popular Horde race, this time with more customization options than the original. That's just what this game needs /s.

Is "hidden everything" the next request?
    Did you forget about roleplayers?
