    And before you go: Blood Elves are former High Elves, High Elves of the Silver Covenant are NOT Blood Elves.
    High Elves belong to the Alliance.

    2. One of the most iconic classes for a High Elf is a paladin, something you cant do. Even if they add it - Void Elf Paladin? Nah...

    3. Imagine pretending being a High Elf, and then that ugly void form racial procs - thats it for the roleplaying if u ask me.

    4. Blizzard gave the middlefinger to High Elf fans yet again - Just like the ungoing debate about Corruptions, we wanted to be able to buy them, and once again: "You want something? You can have our fucked up version of it..."


    The High Elf dream is officially DEAD. Curse the day they added Void Elves...
    I thought the whole point of this is now you can be a high elf if you want throught the void elf character creation (allinace) or through the blood elf character creation (horde).. they no longer need to define a group they're just giving players many of the options and letting htem choose who they are.

    Your character doesn't have to start in Telogrus rift stormwind, there is a new starting area for all those groups that don't fit current racial starting areas.

    Just use your imagination, that's what the deves say. We'll give you the various looks, you decide who you wanna be.

    fucking people. They give something to us that we have asked for, and the first thing people do is continue to complain. get over it. even if there isnt "bad news" you will complain about something.

    Wow

    It truly is over....father (R.I.P Arthas)

    I mean, that's kind of sensible to me. If they're still Void Elves, they prolly should keep Void Elf underwear. :P

    Also I really don't get the High Elf Paladin thing much. But I guess it's part of muh classic pure, fair-skinned blonde elf fantasy. I more so associate High Elves with rangers.

    With void elves being able to look identical to blood elves - which absolutely makes sense considering void elves are blood elves to begin with - there will be absolutely zero difference in the two's appearance, save for some customization options in regards to the hairstyle, facial hair etc.

    This begs the question.. what is the true obstacle in making proper Alliance high elves playable now? Absolutely nothing. The appearance of the model, the skin color and eye color are no longer relevant when it comes to fears of an Alliance race looking identical to one that is already playable on the Horde. The lore is heavily in favour of Alliance high elves being a playable race to begin with.

    There are absolutely no obstacles in making high elves a core Alliance race any longer. Hopefully we'll get ogres or the Mok'nathal as a Horde race too, using the Kul Tiran rig.

    Woah, easy. Void Elves having appropriate underwear is not something to complain about.

    Your High Elves are now Void Elves with High Elf skin.

    There won't be a separate High Elf race, and most definitely not as a counterpart to an actual unique race like Ogres.

Without Void Elves getting High Elf skins (until 9.1 or 9.2, but people wouldn't have known that until those patches)
    Feels good to know both faction playerbases are being considered

    Void elves and LF dranei though? Not really, but hey, if a title is what people need to feel like they got everything they desired then more power to them right?
    Actually people are arguing a title isn't necessary, which is what Danuser was saying.

    I really expected this choice by Blizzard to avoid a large flame war, but it appears that there are still people eager to create conflict despite the fact that this was the ideal (realistic) solution for both parties.

    I hope Blizzard realizes that even if there are a few vocal complainers, most people are probably satisfied. It's just that the initial wave of ecstatic people has died down and leaves only the few disgruntled around to complain about it.

    They're literally making High Elves playable with this.

    Most of the Silver Covenant were probably banned from entering Quel'Thalas after the Northrend campaign, as we saw that Lor'themar had exiled their leader (and rightly so). Before then, since they are an organisation based in Dalaran, they may have been helping with reconstruction efforts there after Archimonde destroyed the city. And, by the time, they were finished there, they may have heard word that the Sin'dorei had aligned themselves with the Horde and then refused to return home in protest.
    Fair enough on the others, but I mean post-WotLK especially on WoD and BFA when they were absent
    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!

    They are taller than any other elf race, and thus literally have the highest point of view.

    Blizzard literally had to explain Blood Elf Paladins by them sucking up energies from a Naaru, because there never were High Elf paladins. High Elf Paladins are as common as Night Elf Paladins: we have one example for each, both added after Blood Elf Paladins became a thing.
    Aside from Mehlar Dawnblade, who was a High Elf Paladin pre-Blood Knight/Blood Elf, during Legion the Paladin Order Hall perk that let you complete a world quest would sometimes summon a 'High Elf Shieldbearer' https://www.wowhead.com/order-advanc...usade#comments

    It's changed function since BFA. But there was someone who was on the official forums, possibly High Elf discord, that took a picture of those Shieldbearers during Legion time.

    So in Legion there were multiple generic NPCs of High Elf Paladins.

    Either way though! I think it should be an option for Alliance side elves, but I'm not miffed it ain't. The true win is that antagonizers to the High Elf request have pretty much scattered

    People are going to be able to make so many good transmogs Alliance side. What with all the blue/gold colors that Alliance has

    Well, actually..

    My main go-to race is Night Elf. Also explains why I've become so cynical and jaded.

    Just imagine! An Elf in a proper clothes instead of the brutish spiky rags the Horde have for their faction gear.
