    The old one does not exist anymore. It's one of the player options. I think it's the brighest one of the 3 blues.
    Whatever...

    I believe Vereesas's Hearthstone artwork was the inspiration behind the update for her new eyes.

    Same, I believe inspiration from Alleria's is the way to go.

    Honestly they've been really on point with taking in feedback lately and I believe there was an EU thread made that does ask for Alleria-like tattoos with a blue responding essentially 'tell us more, we love the ideas!'

    Indeed, it harkens back to Liadrin's Hearthstone image of gold eyes before getting them in WoW!

    TBH I don't think we are getting new hairstyles on VE's now; we will probably get them when the rest of AR get revamped, so... it might take a while.

    What I am expecting is they redo the BE skin tones for VE to change the nail color and underwear, so they exist as unique files rather than being literally shared with BE's.

    And at most some hair color options cause it does feel weird if we only get skin tones and eyes but not.. hair dye?

    It's so weird; I really hope they just give the purple eyes to some High Elves, not all NPC's -it doesn't make sense for the Highvale!-

    I really hope they don't just give NPC HE's purple eyes just cause, I wouldn't get it XD
    I'm not holding my breath for new hairstyles... but I think new hair colors could happen at the same time the new skins hit alpha.

    @DeicideUH good vid by SB! The dark skin tones actually look soooo good and I'm happy they'll be coming over to Void Elves too. Also it appears that Void Elves are getting a total of 6 eye color options so there's a strong choice they could actually get purple eyes as an option.

    Even on the female one, when SB was previewing it the 2nd option looked like it had a tint of purple (could just be seeing things though!).

    All in all awesome, shucks that human skin tons or 'High Elf options', as SB put it, aren't in yet! Hopefully next builds

    Also love the idea about Blood Elves getting red eyes and fiery orange ones! Fits them well!

    I figured; so honestly it could go either way given the evidence so far, but I do hope the NPC's remain with blue eyes and some like Vereesa get the purple ones to stand out.

    Agreed, I think new hairstyles are very very unlikely currently, but at least some hair colors would fit with the added skin tones, it would be very arbitrary to leave them out -but likely-

    But I do think we will be definitely getting new hair colors with the rest of the AR, now, how "HE" those might be is truly unknown. Maybe a white and a "sandy" pale color but not really blonde.

    Also given the preview, I hope we are getting jet black with the alpha. Seems likely so fingers crossed.

    Void elves actually got 7 eye color options, but the females are lacking the purple one (I reported it as a bug just in case). The males have it.

    Even on the female one, when SB was previewing it the 2nd option looked like it had a tint of purple (could just be seeing things though!).
    That's not the true purple one. The purple one is a lot more noticiable!
    Whatever...

    Right? some cool things had made it into wow from HS, and it gives me hope Vereesa will have a role this expansion -even if just the pre-expansion event- that they choose to update her character even if a bit.

    Cause TBH Vereesa and temporarely Valeera are the only elves that have been portrayed with purple eyes, and since the former is the latest depiction, kinda feels it's for her. Otherwise, what's the purpose of adding purple eyes to elves?

    My best guess is that it might be to differentiate the HE's that reside on Dalaran, yet still I don't get the urgency to add it as a visual, unless it's something they wanted to add for Vereesa because she will have a relevant role-

    I think it's a Void Elf exclusive thing.

    Right now it's Death Knight exclusive, though, which I would assume is a bug.

I don't think it's a mistake that it got replaced with purple tho, I do think that's meant to be used for several NPC's, but not all. I think some of them will use new player character blue eyes.
    Pretty much this, yep!

    Ah I see!!! Hopefully it means purple ones are coming similar to how the human skin tones haven't shown up on Void Elves yet!

    Yeah I hope so too, people meme about her but I like her character and she needs more development time obviously.

    Unsure if they have an 'urgency' though seeing as it seems smattered among the other female models on Alliance tho. One thing's for sure, only affects female High Elves

    I mean that's the point; why the need to add a purple eye color for HE NPC's? Someone relevant is going to make use of it would be the answer -otherwise there's no need to add them tbh- and Vereesa is the only HE we have seen portrayed with purple eyes since Valeera.

    Yeah. It looks to me like the Void Elf equivalent of the golden eyes.

    no, i am talking about race, when you jump in and try to distort the conversation forcing to be about groups and not races the problem is entire on you

    i don't discuss about groups, never was my point, never talked about then, my thing is with races, you do well to remember that

    Well, then why you continue to argue with people that are talking about groups? Specially when race as you see it is irrelevant to political affiliation.

    Some people just don't know when to stop, or they like to continue badgering others?

    I mean at this point I don't see the purpose of any anti-helfer anymore trying to continue to argue.....what? What is there left to argue?

    Even ObeliskKai and Broflake left because they already conceded their position lost and people that wanted High Elves won.

    Really hope for those selections, as well as a black. But the black seems given seeing as it was part of the official preview.

    If you're talking about "actual race", then your points are meaningless, because the idea of "actual race" does not pertain as a pre-requisite for new races or allied races. After all, trolls and zandalari trolls are the same "actual race". Highmountain tauren and and tauren are also the same "actual race". Humans and Kul'tirans, humans and gilneans, etc, etc.

    If two groups are of the same race, it's meaningless. That doesn't stop them from being valid candidates to become playable "race" options.
    I did a Necromancer thing. Check it out! All feedback welcome!
    Update 08/17: I changed how the Bone spec's golem mechanic works, as well as some other minor changes.
    I also did a Bard thing! Questions, comments and ideas, all welcome!
    Update 09/02: Apparently the mods decided to merge my class concept thread with an existing one.
