    I think at that point it's too little of difference for Blizzard to care.

    https://www.wowhead.com/news=311958/...in-shadowlands

    But using that wowhead link, and going through every race's early preview - only 2 races (Gnomes and Humans) didn't get additional hair colors in the first pass previews.

    Out of the 11 options there, 9 have received NEW hair colors. That's ~82%.

    So it's highly likely every race is going to get at least 3 additional hair colors (3 is the minimum I saw for those that did have new colors).

    Goblins also get new hair colors. Brings it to ~83%.

    So out of the 12 original races, 10 have new hair colors, and it's very likely so will gnomes and humans.

    Until Blizzard lore team actually inserts more story to the Void Elves adding the fact that High Elves joined the ranks of the Void Elves, I still kinda will feel even with all those customizations that they aren't the race we originally wanted. I am happy to a certain extent but also not fully happy because it is kinda of a cheap way to avoid adding high elves as an alliance allied race.

    What is making you feel like they're going to get hairstyles and hair colors? Didnt Blizzard say that the upcoming overhaul to the customization system would only apply to the original races, not the new ones? The Void Elves getting skin tones was just for the High Elf debacle, other than that I don't think any other Allied races are getting anything?

    It's not updated on wowhead! XD
    Gnomes and humans have also received new hair colors, we saw them in Stiven's video datamining.
    All races received 3 or more new hair colors.

    I can see Void Elves getting a pale blonde Alleria-like hair colour option, not sure about new hairstyles though.

    Ranger war paints can work for both Void and Blood Elves, they could just differentiate them by colour (Void Elf=Blue, Blood Elf=Red), by patterns or both.
    Blood Elves should also get runic tattoos, Void Elf somekind of void versions of that.

    Wrong. Mechagnomes received new customization options. Plus they can change their mind. I'd say the High Elf debate proved that.
    One shot, one kill. This is how I preserve my realm.

    Bingo! And what's with the blue hair for Blood Elves!? AND beards!? They're not man enough to have full beards! lol

    I would even see two different colors for each, blue / purple for the void elves and red / green for the blood elves.

    Random suggestion, but I noticed in the previews, all the non-Voidy Void Elves were given regular Blood Elf underwear. Why not give them something recolored to fit the Alliance elves, and distinguish them slightly more from the Belves?

    It is part of our aesthetic, the void elves have their own aesthetic. remember that umbric is a magister they could use void tattoos with arcane styles.
    You have blue eyes because Blizzard is allowing people to make their character as they envision it. There could always be some high elves returning to Silvermoon, you can just make your character one of them if you so wish. Enjoy it, but it doesnt mean there was a big shift in the story. Blizzard, thankfully, is just allowing more options for players.

BEs would get their acane runes that fit the BE design philosophy and way of thinking. Problem solved.
    High elves didn't have warpaint, the only character that did was in WC2 and that was Alleria.
    It i also stated that the blood elves have maintained their way of thinking. It is the high elves that have left their traditions and their people behind.

    They'll have Void Elf underwear.

Up untill at least Cataclysm, light was the stark opposite of death too and they changed that very easily.

    My entire point is that whatever lore is canon right now is pointless to latch onto because it can change within a single patch, let alone an expansion or major story source like a book, novel and so on. Don't be surprised if they turn their back on their own lore as it stands today and make void elf paladins in the future. That is all I am saying.

    The one that wanted Illidan to the "Chosen One" was Xe'ra, a Naaru, and Naaru have shown us to be no less the individuals than any other characters we've met. We've seen that their ideas differ, as is witnessed through A'dal's take on things.
    That is a fair point, and honestly I don't like how things have been shifted about purely for the sake of jutifying design choices. Again, I would not be surprised if suddenly there were void elf paladins.

    Uhhh, Alleria is not a "normal"elf. She is considered a Ren'dorei because like them, she has changed in such a fundamental way that calling herself a high elf doesn't really fit. Plus, void elves bleed purple. Very anti-elf like

    But I agree. Just give us some new cold colors and hairstyles. Let the Blood elves keep the blond/brown hairs.
    Can we get tentacle hairs too since those are void elf exclusive?
    I mean,if we're swapping stuff and VE get skin tones, I think its fair to get tentacle hair made of light.
    Xe'ra had light tentacles

    Let's raise to three: blue, violet and magenta for void elves; red, green and gold for blood elves.

    then you agree that the high elves we see in queldanas alongside auric can be the same elves we interpret now that we can have blue eyes.

    It is part of the aesthetics of my race. I want that statics in my race.

    Yes, they can, you can roleplay your character as such.
    But that doesn't mean they are changing sides in any meaningful number until a canonical source confirms it.
    Whatever...

    Since the race is practically neutral at this point why not.

    we have the eyes and the declaration that we must be united as children of silvermoon.
