    Cool idea but Blizzard has already said they won't give us a playable race that doesn't have feet.

    i agree, they look like scaly nightborne, maybe a fin or 2 on the head and arms, 2 tentacles hanging from the chin area (simmilar to draenei),

    They look pretty close to the void hunter model. That to my knowledge hadn’t been used on many of any mounts.

    I really like the concept. I think the only change I’d make would be to keep more of the naga look for their “land” form. Kinda between naga and jinyu. Maybe even where the face is elvish with like Draenei tentacle beards.

    It was only after their sacrifice that was made during the fall of Azshara that all of the faithful have finally redeemed themselves and received Elune's great blessing. They were granted the ability to return to their elven form and they took upon their new name - Nazdorei, the children of the sea.

    Joining the Alliance

    Before allowing them to join the Alliance, the High King demands that the Nazdorei must officialy reach out to the Kaldorei who will have the final word on whether or not are they worthy of joining the faction. Maiev Shadowsong is the first person who approaches them and she isn't particulary welcoming. After a brief but calm exchange of views, Tyrande Whisperwind joins the meeting and weighs in on her previous encounter with the Nightborne. Tyrande explains that she might have been too quick to judge the Nightborne and then states that she won't do the same mistake again. She carries on and says that she will let the children of the sea prove their worth on their own rather than making another hasty decision by herself.

    Jokes

    I hate when a turtle makes it to the water.
    No, I won't impersonate a murloc.
    Okay, okay, I will. But it's the last time I'm doing it: Mrrlrllrlrgrglr!
    Sunwell, Nightwell, Well of Eternity... Well, I don't care!
    I'm really not a fan of dry humor.

    Flirts

    I hope you like fishing, because we should definitely hook up!
    I always had a thing for landwalkers, you know?
    There are a lot of fish in the sea, but you're the only one I'd like to catch.
    Did you know that your body is made 70% of water? And now I'm thirsty.
    Water you doing tonight?
    Have you ever dipped in the Naga pond?

    Speak for yourself, some people only play elves.. and they are quite popular. There were many disappointed with aspets of the nightborne - mainly that nightborne didn't go alliance, and that void elves were given instead of high elves. - which the alliance felt like a double loss.

    I think any new elven sub-races should go on the alliance. I think horde fans have had enough of elves on their faction.

    very very unique and cool concept

    bUT WHY MORE ELVEEEES

    ..wait, naga were once night elves. nvm, carry on

    Great job overall, it must have taken a while! You did a great job balancing familiar concepts with new. Stuff like this is why this game sorely needs an editor to allow community made options.

    The only con I have is that the faded granular edges of your backgrounds are a bit too much and distracting. In the future I'd suggest toning it down a bit so it's easier to focus on what you made.

    I have been saying this for more than a year, that playable naga would only work as shapeshifters like worgen, shifting between naga form and night elven form, and elven form would be obligatory in mounting. I guess this idea goes exactly in the same direction.

    Still there are other elven races people also love ro become playable, like the alliance high elves and the sanlayn or undead elves. Not sure which elves will become playable in the future.

    Big congrats on the effort for the cool art work!

    The game doesn't need anymore elves. Better they never be playable then removing there snake body.

    I think the hair styles should be implemented straight away on the Nightborne they are amazing

    This, honestly. Naga are naga, not elves, and we don't need to waste another slot on people that want to play an elf but "no, not those elves a slightly different elf!!!!!"

    They said this back in either BC or Wrath. I really don't want to search for their comment that said it but feel free to find it yourself. Its out there. They talked about art design being made for races with 2 legs not 0 or 4. That means no dryad or naga ever.

    Yeah I'm not going to hold a comment (that may or may not exist) from 10 years ago as something they must never break. They said there wouldn't be Demon Hunters or Classic server yet here we are.

    It's a concept. And the likelihood of it (or any similar fan concepts for that matter) being picked up and then implemented to the game is non-existing anyway. I am doing it for fun.

    I had this idea, I started working on it and then felt like sharing it with the others. It was never about the number of elf races that's currently being represented in the game. Neither about the people who are screaming that there's too many of them already.

    I'd play one. In Naga form 90% of the time, too..
    F yea..me too.

    That's not how the burden of proof works, chief.

    Blizzard never said that, ever. What they said is that there were design hurdles revolving around having a race with no legs or feet. Naga were originally planned for Vanilla, as laid out in the World of Warcraft Diary and several interviews. The problem was they, and the time, could not figure out and way to handle mounts, leg armor, or boots.

    If you are going to make absurd claims then be ready to back up your statements when asked for the burden of proof instead of making up excuses.

    Edit: Oh, in the time it took me to type this it looks like they were banned. Guess they won't be giving any proof to their absurd claims.

    I love that you did it, if I had skills like that with digital art, i'd be visualizing all my concepts, far more powerful when people can see good work.

    And I appreciate that you done it too.

    Very good concept idea.
