    High Elf fans turn even more disgusting with every thing Blizzard gives to them. You already got so much, shut up and enjoy you rip-offs.

    But they are. We will just play the second generation of void elves aka Silvermoon and exiled elves mastering the void.
    Btw I'm not asking any blood elf customizations. I will happily play my blue haired, fair skinned High elf.

    Let the Horde keep their blond blood elves.

    Now as we have high elves in the Alliance, can blood elves finally stop being light elves?

    Agreed, I'm ok not having blonde as a color (I just don't see an issue if it happens as well). blue/black/white/silver hair color options are what I'm hopeful for.

    White haired high elf would be glorious

    Blood Elves having golden eyes is basically the only meaningful, unique lore they have left. It's the story of their liberation from Fel corruption and return to grace.

    It is not unique, as Alliance has two races completely based on Light. Moreover, blood elves needed no liberation from any corruption and Alliance's grace is meaningless.

    Yes please, I can't wait for the Blood elves to loose the Sunwell again so they go back at not being boring normie copypasta fantasy elfy elves and bring life to the concept of Blood elves that existed in TbC again.

    It was just better, but Blizzard simply has a weird fetish with 'redemption' stories...

    They think redemptions are the only way to make an edgy character. Their attitude is "kill someone and confess to a priest".

    True. The Blood Elves were still true to themselves when they were still magic junkies, it gave them the Horde's true character: edgy outcast with morally grey theme
    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 think BC era blood elves were closer to original highborne and Anasterian's Quel'thalas than this new abomination with Lightwell.

    Blood elves were sooo interesting back in TBC until that shitty redemption story.

    Now they have only become long eared humans absolutely loving the Horde for no reasons.

    I really miss them. It seems Void elves replaced them.

    Honestly I feel most of the reason for those who are upset or harping on 'MuH bLoOd elF UNiqUeness' is because the suggestions people made for Alliance High Elves were probably wanted by them for Blood Elves and Blood Elves only. So they could keep memeing the 'blood elves are high elves'/'horde is waiting for you' phrases.

    Also I and others did keep saying that the request was maintaining its momentum because anti-s couldn't help but keep trying to argue against it.

    The same thing occurred when people organized to make Artifact Weapon cosmetic unlocks stay permanent whereas Blizzard initially was going to lock ALL the looks of em away. Threads upon threads fighting for the unlocks to stay were had, with a consistent group of dissenters.

    Then Blizzard made a GOOD compromise by limiting only the Mage Tower skins.

    Same thing in essence happened here, arguing for High Elves in an organized fashion with a consistent group of dissenters and Blizzard giving a GOOD compromise (not ideal) with blue eyes to both and human skin tones (or high elf I should say ) to Void Elves.

    One of the things that I tried to suggest way back in 2018 was to give void elves "somewhat normal skins". Even made a few mockups:





    The answer I was given is that it intruded too much into blood elf aesthetics.

    Now we got actual blood elf skins. Of all tones.
    In a way, by being too stubborn to make concessions, they ended up with a situation that they "lost" even more. But hey, they got blue eyes, wasn't that what they wanted?
    Whatever...

    As a nightborne I'd want slinted eyes, more hair/jewelry styles, and removed chin plate on the female heritage armor. If I wanted to push it, additional Suramar npc-themed clothing sets available from the nightfallen reputation vendor and an option to look slightly withered like Thalyssra pre-magic fruit.

    I actually like those mockups of slightly tinted skin more than the ones with the voidy arms and legs. Great work.

    I want Blood Elves to become a race that values 'vengeance' again (Things you hear when you click on NPCs) and not being the 'nice guys'. They're not evil, you won't see them willingly go start wars as they just want to protect their own people - but if you mess with them? They'll send a Blood Knight at you: https://cdna.artstation.com/p/assets...jpg?1503115893

    Never forget that the "True Masters of the Light" burnt down the chapel where the Silver Hand was formed, even if Blizzard seem to have forgotten that part!

    but the high elves joined the horde in tbc, under another name

    you entirely moved goalposts about HE being a iconic race of the alliance in the majority of wow to say they were not iconic but should be a thing anyway

    No, that's false.
    since most of the spammers died out when they announced the skin colors, and now others are demanding the entirety of the blood elf options, it is very safe to assume isn't false.

    they are not high elves just using the void, they are blood/high elves mutaded by the void, it is the base of the entire race and how they got different racials, a different racial set in stone as a fact that they are not the same race anymore

    Btw I'm not asking any blood elf customizations. I will happily play my blue haired, fair skinned High elf.
    maybe not you, but there is topics asking exactly that, a lot of people is asking, all blood elf customization plus their classes like paladin, and lore be dammed, and im saying that is a bit too much, and they should at least keep a minimum amount of difference and uniqueness especially when blood elves aren't getting nothing from void elves in this exchange
