    They have literally added four or five blue eyed options to the Blood Elf files.

Instead, we have several shades of blue which matches the several shades of green and gold that are also present. Heterochromia options involving blue eyes are missing, but they could easily be added before the end of the beta.

    Whilst you are correct that all of this is no guarantee Blood Elves will end up with blue eyes, a dispassionate look at the available facts would conclude that the odds are overwhelmingly in favour of these being available. You are predicating your belief they won't be added on the idea that Blizzard considers the objections of the pro high elf crowd as something to gingerly step around, to accommodate. As I have argued before, why would they prioritise the feelings of those who wish to reserve blue eyes for alliance high elves, a group Blizzard has already ruled out, over the desires of people playing Blood Elves right now? That has never made sense.

    I think it is far more likely than not Blood Elves will end up with blue eyes. But time will tell.

    Finally the High Elves are there where they belong. As a customization option for the Blood Elves. They were the same race all long so its the only right option

    Mod Edit: Don't use giant fonts in this fashion.

    My idea as mentioned way back would still be to have the race option be added as a mix of High Elves and half-elves, with the majority of the customization being more in between so as to not overlap more than necessary with Blood Elves (but still having the option of making something that's a pure High Elf).

    So the high elves that called themseves blood elves afther the massacre are now not high elves from within anymore? Dafuq, what kind of drugs are you using, read the lore about blood elves, youll fast figure out that they are the high elves you desperately want,

    I know it's hard to admit it, but no. This will not be a customization but an improvement for the HE npc's model. Blizzard already said it MANY times, you - wont - get - anything - from - the - HE ! Stop hyping yourself for nothing and then beeing in shock.

Yet, that's what you and other do, parroting Hazzikostas, who has demonstrated time and again that he neither understand nor care to understand the demands of Alliance players.

    And, for the millionth time. Blood Elves were High Elves, but they have discarded this name and the theme of the two groups have diverged widly. That you refuses to see it doesn't make it untrue.
    Except WoW isn't a World War 2 game. It's faction based fantasy MMO where the factions comprise unique races not available to the other side of the divide. Duplicating a part of one faction to the other undermines the distinctiveness of those factions and degrades the faction barrier.

    As for the 'themes' of Blood Elves and the exiles diverging wildly, they have not. Blood Elves and the exiles represent the same theme, generic fantasy elf. That theme is a part of the Horde experience now, just as the Orc theme or the Troll theme is. If you want to play a generic fantasy elf, the Horde is waiting for you.

    If you cannot accept the Horde, the 95% Void Elf match is there for you.

    The perfect is the enemy of the good. You cannot have 100% of what you want. You should settle for close.

    Void Elves are barely 5% of what I wanted. They are former Blood Elves, break the lore and already made uttelry irrelevant in the very same expansion they were added in.

    I want to play the High Elves; not their orc-suckers, undead-whorshippers degenerate brethren from Silvermoon, sorry.

    You consider two paragraphs an essay? Frankly I'd love to just say that you aren't getting them and it's never going to happen and that these blues eyes are almost certainly part of blood elf customizations, but there's a mod warning on this thread saying doing so is considered trolling so anyone expressing an 'anti' point of view is obligated to give a detailed explanation.

    And by the way, alliance aligned high elves are not a moral compass. From quelithian lodge to the purge, to forsaking family.
    Yes they are. They refused to join their degenerate brethren and stayed true to their values and beliefs, no matter what, when the Blood Elves consorted with the worst Azeroth has to offer. The Purge is hardly a black stain on the High Elves, quite the contrary. Their former kin allied with the Horde. It makes them deserving of being purged.

    I didn't say I support them, I used to but I'm pretty indifferent towards it now. I play a blood elf. I'm just saying it's not conclusive until it's in customization.

    As I said if neither option is tolerable for you then you are among the unfortunate group who can't be satisfied. A resolution for your unhappiness on this issue won't be found in this thread. After all, the possibility of a dedicated high elf allied race is almost certainly permanently foreclosed now. The possibility of high elf like skins on Void Elves isn't, but a.) that could be a monkey paw result and b.) it would still be a Void Elf, which you are vocally unhappy about.

    Im afraid your not intreested in the high elves at all, cause they have been playable for over 14 years, under their new name to respect their fallen brethren, their called blood elves,

    We can only hope ! We'll just have to wait and see.

    It's not conclusive but the odds are moving that way. I imagine it won't be long until we know either way.

    Those are fucking sin'dorei. BLOOD ELVES. I don't want those n**i-sympathisers. I want the Resistance, ie, the High Elves (Silver Covenant, the Lodges, etc.).

    You are trolling, right ?

    I hate Blood Elves and love High Elves, because the two aren't the same at all politically, morally and in terms of values. I'll never manage to pusha Blood Elf toon beyond level 15. I know because I tried more than half a dozen of times. But I hate the question of their starting zones, or any other zones where the Blood Elves are present on the Horde.

    I only like Trolls (Darkspears and Zandalari) Horde side. And that's it.

    The chumps that got to sit out in a nice house while their kingdom was destroyed by the human Prince Arthas and now want to take over Quel'Thalas from the elves who rebuilt the place and claim they were the good guys all along.

    Laughable.
