    The future of High Elves is, and has always been, with the High Elves. And now Allies can play High Elves who join the Ren'dorei and have the historical High Elf Alliance hero Alleria as their leader.

    There is no need to be upset.

    Yeah, but Alleria by default looks more like a regular High Elf, unlike the currently playable Void Elves. She isn't really a Void Elf the same way they are. She can harness the void and enter a void form, they are stuck looking the way they do because that incident that turned them into blueberries is irreversible.

    Which is where the High and Blood Elves being trained by the first Void Elves come in. They didn't experience that incident, so they remain uncorrupted, albeit capable of harnessing the void like a regular void user would, I suppose.

    I really hope this is not just an aesthetic change and we actually get lore repercussions that include the High Elves.

    i don't think im wrong boomer, high elves can became and transform into void elves, denying their heritage and past, in prol of void powers, just like people said they would never do

    but where lies the high elf thematic? their people? their homeland? most of their characters? and consequent, their story? isn't with the ren'dorei as far we know, quel'thalas is over there.

    There is no need to be upset.
    and who is? there is no need to distort things

    the point is how things will finaly come to an end.

    Edit: Wait, did they get the coloration? The front page confused me for a moment. The "new void elf options" thing has most of them in blood elf underwear models so I assumed those are blood elf??
    This is so messy dear lord.

    It's an outrage.

    But is the outrage enough to fuel this thread the rest of the way to 1000 pages?

    I am one of them, yes.

    I like the void aesthetic of my void elf and I will keep them that way. Now, at least we'll see who actually likes Void Elves and doesn't just consider them consolation prizes/fill-ins for High Elves.

    Thanks! I'm still amazed at them giving us all the blood elf skin tones, really. I was expecting some "almost normal" options for void elves, but giving the full spectrum of blood elf skins? That's way more than I ever expected!
    Whatever...

    in contrast you could say
    "you are not a high elf, youa re just a blood elf with blue eyes"
    "i am a high elf!! it doens't matter if i became purple in the fight!! or have void powers and tentacles, it don't matter if the name behind me is not high elf, im still high elf!!!"

    at this points the splinters between the groups, will be just for giggles now

    Hopefully, we get like a 10 year time shift after SL where the Void Elves have built up Telogrus Rift into a proper settlement. They deserve more than one long camping trip into the rift.

    I saw an interesting suggestion on the official forums. This goes back to the idea that Wildhammer dwarves and Sand Trolls are being added as customization options instead of separate races:

    Add customization to Blood Elves to let them play San'layan, plus give arcane tatoos. And give warpaint/high elf options for Void Elves.

    I would say her voided mode is her true form and her high elf look is just when she is hiding it away.
    The reason I disagre with your notion is primarily because we have both high elf and blood elf wayfarers.
    Theoretically, that means blood elves should get access to the same stuff void elves do, but we don't.

    So it seems unusual to immediately assume thehigh elves joined the void elves.
    Not that it matters whether or not they do at this point.

    I wonder if Void Elves are now going to shoot up in population to rival Blood Elves.
