    As you have now. Still going to be a Void Elf once they undergo the transformation to gain void powers though.

    Why do you even bother?
    Given that I said this is what they would be if this happened, I fail to see how this moving the goalposts.

    It's still a Void Elf.

    It's okay to accept that you were wrong. Nobody will hold a grudge.

    If you keep digging the hole deeper, though, people will point and laugh.

    Hey guys remember when Ion said blue eyes on blood elves didn't make sense?

    Ion also said bear and cat forms as dinosaurs wouldn't make sense.

    I'm noticing a pattern... guess what else Ion said didn't make sense.


    Ion also said Void Elf Paladins didn't make sense.

    It's kind of like when a machine breaks and the machine is stuck in a loop repeating itself.

    Face it. We're gonna play regular thalassian elves mastering the void. That's it.

    If they add blonde hair as well im sold.

    People bitched and whined that painting VE's wasn't enough and that it wouldn't be acceptable. Now it's a big win. Observing that and stating that isn't being mad about something, it's pointing out facts. Hell I even congratulated them on their supposed win and wished them happiness in the feature they're getting. Yet I'm mad? xD
    You're being pretty spiteful, that's clear. Why do people get so childish about this stuff?

    If you were playing belf SP, sure.

    That's some next level mental gymnastics you're trying to do there. Void elves are still void elves. You still can't be Paladins, you have velfs racials, no blond hair.

    The actual HIGH ELVES are horde now.

    I'm sure you helfers are over the moon despite all the lore crap that was spouted in this thread. But that doesnt' change the fact that what you wanted is now on the Red Side, even more enforced now that belves got blue eyes.

    What part of the High Elf identity is the Belf mana tap racial?

    The only thing is the paladin class (which isn't intrinsically High Elf in the first place, just tied to them through the Silver Hand) and even then it makes sense that an elf that chooses to join with the void elves wouldn't be allowed to practice light stuff.

    This is funny considering that there's a dude in this thread repeatedly spamming that there wasn't a 'win' because Void Elves are still called Void Elves. In the spirit of that, Blood Elves are still Blood Elves.

    For real though dude let it go. This is pitiful to read. Also if they give Void Elves Paladins and Blood Elf hair colors you're going to look even dumber. Just quit.

    Both factions get basically the same option and they still find a way to bicker over it because they're more interested in cringy online faction tough guy point scoring contests.

    Never ever change.

    Do the void elves get blood elf haircuts?

    There were High Elven Paladins pre-WC3, just so you know. If anyone can be a warrior and can be a priest - they can be a paladin as long as they're not Undead
    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 HD custom models and I'm also an HD model reviewer.

    Doesn't seem that way. Nor vice versa. We'll have to see what stuff looks like in the upcoming build.

    Alternatively, when the allied races get their proper customization patch.

    Well tried but Thalassian elves are neutral now. And High elves mean nothing now.

    This is all about Alliance elves and Horde elves now.

    Am I crazy, or is all the new void elf/blood elf customization news off topic here?
    I mean, void elves and blood elves aren't high elves so why are we talking about their hair colors and skin tones?

    I don't see it that way. For two years I've been told that Void Elves weren't good enough and the reason I was given was that they weren't the Silver Covenant and that they COULDN'T be the High Elves desired because they were messing with dangerous void magics and real high elves wouldn't use that kind of magic. Now, Void Elves get those normal skin tones. And hallelujah, what a surprise, it turns out that them not being the Silver Covenant and that they are still up to their eyeballs in void magic counts for nothing.

    Wrong? This is vindication. It really was all about the skin tone all along. If the complaints regarding the lore, the complaints of substance were true, the people looking for high elves would be rioting. That they aren't proves Void Elves as a concept were always fine, it was merely the look.

    But the end result holds. A stand alone high elf allied race that can be a Paladin isn't happening. What the Alliance has is what it has always had, Void Elves.
