    But at last, the high elf fantasy is coming for the Alliance. And that's super cool.
    No they're not the same. If they were the same they wouldn't exist as separate races and instead as customization options for the regular race. You have no High Elf fantasy. The only fantasy you're getting, or still have, is the same one Alleria started when she sucked up that naruu back in legion.

    The Fantasy you're thinking of is Horde only.

    They should get them as well!! no sarcasm. It would help differentiate Alliance Elves vs Horde Elves. Oh wait, that doesn't matter anymore! Leafy hairstyles for all!!

    I have everything I need for Silver Covenant transmos but I confess that I love the elven racial armor of the void too much, which will be even more magnificent on normal skin!

    Void elves have the same animations as Blood Elves. I had to go and check for the other races, and all but Kul Tirans and Lightforged Draenei have idle animations that are more than "standing there."

    Sure you can roleplay to be the thing, but your tag still says void elf. So its exactly like ion said.. you cant be everything, but we try to let players what they want to be, but to me you are still a void elf.

    The fairskinned void elves will for ever be called wannabes tho, I hope the high elf fans can live with that.

    That's a DK-only hair color. I'm curious if this is a mistake from whoever put those images together, or if they'll open the DK hair colors for everyone (something I wanted for many races for a long time).
    Whatever...

    They may, but we probably won't see it until AR properly get their turn for customization.

    What we're seeing with the news today is what Blizzard mentioned before, and I've said. Since they're working on the same races and models they can turn some of that work/attention to both options much easier now than before.

    Considering they're giving the same exact skin options, it's likely we'll see some facial hair options too. After all, Blood Elves are also getting VE facial hair options.

    They'll be wannabes with it the same way Blood Elves are tagged as Blood Elves and some players still call themselves High Elves.

    Well.. I already saw people being mad because its like I said not a real high elf. But what ever high elf fans are never happy..
    They should be happy, because they can finnaly play a blood elf on the alliance -.-

    Do not care.
    You don't care or just misinformed with the situation. Either way don't open up a conversation you can't hold up without looking foolish.

    Never heard of that tbh.. you play a blood elf not a high elf.

    "Foolish" from the dude that can't accept a mutual win. Awkward.

    And no I just don't care at all about what some anti-High Elf person said to High Elf people ages ago. Or one faction of them said to another. It doesn't matter.

    You'll find plenty in this thread alone. You're fortunate to have missed those cringe sights.

    Yes the dark purples will go well with the lighter/fair options.

    The same applies to Blood Elves no? And if Blood Elves are High Elves then are not Void Elves also High Elves? The game will always address both as Blood Elf or Void Elf but both have their roots in the Quel'dorei. All this new announcement does is allow Void Elves to more closely resemble their Quel'dorei roots much like the addition of blue eyes will allow Blood Elves to do so as well.

    All in all I think these options make it very unlikely for an allied race specifically named "High Elf" to happen, but I also think those looking for playable Alliance High Elves will largely find what they are looking for in Void Elves with these customization options, especially if Blizzard does add some in-game lore that explains the why and how of Alliance High Elves joining the ranks of the Ren'dorei. That could go a long way to smoothing out the lore inconsistencies that such options are bound to raise.

    I don't feel that the Paladin class being available makes or breaks what is or isn't a High Elf... and as Ion has said before "anything is possible". Void Elf paladins could be a thing someday.

    Haha, "mutal win". More like "shut up you babies and never bother me again" from blizzard. Purple elves should have been enough from the start. But nope.

    I love how you helfers are so high on your own lack of self awareness and hypocrisy that you don't realize this is a anti helfer win. Have fun with your forever VOID ELVES. I'm sure you'll be reminded each time you see a blue eyed belf pally or your toon procs your void form.

    No chance of ever getting a Helf allied race now, No chance of thalassian alliance paladins, etc, etc

    GG, Oby. We won despite what these clowns say now.

    I saw some complaint that they wanted to play high elf paladin and void elves are not paladins! but not all of us have what we want! I want botanist from TBC !!!

    I know, but because this is model-editing rather than in-game screens, mistakes can be made sometimes as the designer just mix assets together. I've seen them do it with hair styles before (making an image with impossible combinations of hair geosets).

    I really hope they open the colors for everyone, I've wanted that for many races for a long time. I love the Human DK dark blue, the blood elf DK light and dark blues, the night elf DK pink and red hair, and many others. So, I'm crossing fingers that this is not just a designer mistake.

    I think that blue was one of the new haircolors datamined by WoWhead, no?

    Only if they give Blood Elves a red colour to their Light spells. I miss that with Seal of Blood. :<
