    I know belvs are still belves. Im just making a point since helfers are goign crazy over the aesthetics when all they wanted was the lore. Pure hypocrisy or lack of self awareness after today.

    Also velves will never be paladins just as Forsaken can't be paladins for obvious reasons.


    There is no win here. There are no alliance high elves. What the alliance wanted is still horde only. Anything else is just flexing your brain cells, but that wont last long. Just like how helf fans went nuts when velves were first announced only to quickly turn around and hate on blizz for a half-assed compromise.


    Velves are still velves.

    Blood elves still hold the true uncorrected lore and aesthetic that helfers wanted. GG

    Do you think the void elves will soon become the most played allied race?
    If it can repopulate the alliance a bit, it's cool.

    Hopefully somebody remembers this when they add Paladin to the class. That'll be humorous.

    It's silly to make any kind of authoritative statements regarding what Blizzard will or won't do. They do whatever they want and justify it after the fact. We wouldn't be in this situation right now if they made lore based decisions.

    I feel kind of weird having to point this out but you do realize everything Blood Elves have lore-wise is also a Void Elf thing right? Like they're an off-shoot. Every single thing that happened to the Sin'dorei happened to the Ren'dorei. They have the exact same history. They are the same people split by politics. You look ridiculous.

    By the way there were plenty of people that would've settled for lighter skin tones on Void Elves instead of High Elves. Unless you're going to cite specific cases it's hard to really cite hypocrisy here.

    That would make sense if velves and belves were the same EXACT race....


    With that logic, NB, LFD are the same race as their original counter parts.

    Just give it time, the "high" will fade and the same empty feeling will come back when you realize you still don't have what you want despite how many mental hurdles you jump over.

    Yeah it's honestly pretty dumb, for both sides who are engaging in such.

    What I'm uber happy about is now the dumb retorts like 'if you want fair skin/blue eyes/horde is waiting for you' stops as fair skin/blue eyes are now on the Alliance as well. Then there was the whole 'Blood Elves are High Elves' and now it's possible to say Void Elves are High Elves too.

    Basically it finally silences a sect of antagonizers. I took a quick gander at the official forums and the most prominent ones are nowhere to be found, almost like they vanished away after today's news.

    It feels real good. Like this good.

    They already were, pretty sure. Their numbers will definitely spike though with free unlocks/helf aesthetics.

    I am happy to see you happy Rhlor, I know you've been wanting what we got today for a long time without trying to deny others options.
    I am happy!! we can all be happy !! I hope the blood elves have tattoos too! I hope the developers remember that auric said that the children of silvermoon should be together! I would like to see him at silvermoon !!

    What are people so happy about? Its not High Elves. If people are happy with this, it really shows how much faith you have in Blizzard giving players what they want.

    The objectively best race is the most played race. Balanced, as it should be.
    The Void. A force of infinite hunger. Its whispers have broken the will of dragons... and lured even the titans' own children into madness. Sages and scholars fear the Void. But we understand a truth they do not. That the Void is a power to be harnessed... to be bent by a will strong enough to command it. The Void has shaped us... changed us. But you will become its master. Wield the shadows as a weapon to save our world... and defend the Alliance!

    The High Elf customizations are going to shoot their popularity up lol

    Now I wonder how many of those that played Horde because they had the closest to High Elves will switch over to the Alliance.

    Also, I can't wait to start sharing pics of my Alliance High Elf in this thread come Shadowlands and O-M-G all the new fanart we're going to get now with Alliance High Elves now that they're a supported playable option by Blizzard!!

    They are. It's all about Ren'dorei and Sin'dorei now.


    But at last, the high elf fantasy is coming for the Alliance. And that's super cool.

    Yo are you new here or something, that's literally the arguments that anti helfers had against helfers when they claimed all they wanted was the lore of alliance elves and did not want ANYTHING do with blood elves despite belevs having everything they wanted.

    Sit down.

    Speaking personally I'm satisfied because it gives some finality to the whole thing. Blizzard has spent years dangling High Elves in front of people while delaying their implementation. They'd say no, then say everything is on the table and then repeat. It was irritating. After over a decade this is kind of a "fuck it, close enough" situation.

    Now this debate about whether they are void elves, of course they are although the corruption of the void is not so strong, the hair colors show something of the same, and I think it is the only difference in faction that we have now as Ion once said the Thalassian blondes are in the horde.
