    That's a load of nonsense. The night elves have 2 distinct types of architecture, one marble based that goes back to the pre-sundering time - you know, all those places called Night elf cities (some of which are still around), and then the druidic style adopted after the sundering.

    It is likely that a night elf capital would be a marble type silver/blue/purple based, where as the surrounding forest with druid communities and the mobile out posts of the sentinels would be trees and wood as befits what we've seen of them. Wardens have their towers and vault, priests and mages have temples and cities.
    @Mace how about this, restored Nar'thalas in Azsuna for the night elves. It's already there, it's more manageable than ding a full zin'azsahri, andit's got val'sharah and black rook hold nearby



    And this version of Skywall for the high elves? It has a vibe that is closer to the night elven highborne but elven enough to be high elven or something they would take over, maybe land on the ground.

    What's the problem about talking about high elves in a thread where high elves are one of the subjects being discussed?
    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.

Forsaken it highly depends on what direction the story takes them. We still have no idea who their leader will be by the end of the expansion or what their role will be going forward. Suramar should be phased for Nightborne, it is glorious and a waste to not use as a capital city for the Horde.

    Void Elves I just don't care about, I really don't.
    High Elves in Hinterlands. I agree, i'm hoping Gilneas becomes a thing and they get their lands back. Night Elves in Feralas and Dire Maul. They'll probably move the undead to the ruins of theramore just to troll the alliance even more. I think Andorhal would be more appropriate?

    Maybe they could build new cities.

    You do realize both the void elves and high elves were exiled by the blood elves. So they were the ones that got abandoned. Tho in truth, high elves and void elves could disappear and it would only improve the story.

    I want the Nelfs to claim Feralas and Diremaul as their capital.

    I want a new tree to be grown to replace teldrassil, and this time be made with current technology that is actually able to make it look like a tree. Also, if the faction divide, the horde needs to conquer it immediately and turn it into our new capital because of reasons.

    Honestly I want Night Elves to move further away from their Highborne aesthetics (mostly) I still don't get why Darnassus was designed that way when every other new NE settlement used wooden structures.

    I would love to see Night Elves creating larger wooden buildings that ressemble more tiered pagodas, up their legion and redesigned Auberdine/Lor'danel aesthetic to a metropolis level with little stone/marble buildings (with the exception of the temple of the moon perhaps)

    Less try to capture the glorious past and more move forward with their unique kaldorei aesthetics.

    Most of darnassus was wooden buildings. Only the temple was really made of stone, which one could argue is a staple of the faith. I think it was overall just weird that it had this reclaimed ruin-like aesthetic, when the whole thing was build like not 30 years ago.

    Personally I'd phase out the NE's from marbeled structures that harken back to the empire days; even with the lot of stone and marble on Darnassus, a lot of it was wooden pagoda like structures; and with the latest kaldorei buildings of Legion and BfA, a metropolis built on that style. Kaldorei wooden/druidic buildings are so unique aesthetically that it would be kinda of bummer to go for another highborne throwback.

    Now imgine that asthetic of imposing pagodas on trees on a world three with levels, like concept art Teldrassil. Beautiful.

    I feel High Elves could make use of either a dalarani aesthetic or actually go for a throwback to their highborne past, even if just for show and diminished.



    structures like that evoke the aesthetics of the modern elven lodges; a mixed construction material (adding more wood) and keeping their settlements simpler (like the level of space and distribution of a garrison) would be great to showcase them as a group not on the level of other elven civilizations.

    And Void elves need a mind mending gothic spire on Telogrus, like, yesterday.

    And a lot of Silvermoon could be revamped using recolored Nar'thalas/Zin'aszhari Highborne structures. The layouts are very very similar, and of all the modern elven civilizations I think Silvermoon is the one that most reflects that aesthetic.

    My personal wishlist:

    • A new big city for Worgen AND NEs in a retaken Gilneas. Something akin to @kendro1200 's second pic, but with darker, albeit lush tones.
    • Stratholme and/or Deatholme retaken from the Scourge and set up as the new Forsaken capital.
    • Silvermoon revamped and improved. Ruins are retaken from Scourge remnants and rebuilt into a void elf capital. That would require the current faction system to be drastically revised, though.
    • Mechagon becomes the new Gnome capital. Those little guys really need a proper city of their own, and no, Gnomeregan doesn't count.

    Yeah, I did expand on that on my following post; it's really just a part of Darnassus that relies on stone buildings. A New temple of Elune that actully looks new could be very cool, as well as impossing pagodas that look better than wooden walls stacked on top of each other.

    The architecture used on Auberdine and Lordanel on BfA is gorgeous, and I'd love to see it used on a city level over just a village.

    Excuse me?? Void elf section of silvermoon? No. Keep those infectious junkies under quarantine in their space rift.

    I think it goes without saying that VEs wouldn't be allowed within a 50 miles or so radius around the Sunwell

    But if 9.0 actually dissolves (or drastically diminishes) the current factions, it would be doable.

    Because it always ends up as this toxic ass circle jerk that most people do not care about. There's an entire thread for High Elves, argue about it there and accept most players just don't care

    Night Elves could retake Dire Maul I guess. Gotta kick out some Ogres though :P

    Or if the Worgen ever get Gilneas back the Worgen could return the favor to the Night Elves who took them in and let them live with them, maybe have their own district or even an island off the coast, raise another tree from the ocean, who knows

    Or maybe have the Night Elves go live in Val'sharah, it;s very night elf dominated and seems very fitting for them.

    For Night Elves, take over Eldre'thalas, make it look like Moonguard Stronghold then use the open courtyard to add a huge tree; alternatively extend the city past the western walls to include the nearby Great Tree so there is a direct link to the Dream
    For Forsaken, I don't want them to leave Lordaeron. Personally I'd love if they invest more in their Lordaeronian Identity, not less. One idea is that they could use the Blood Elves Quel'thalas foothold and then reclaim Stratholme with the surrounding area. Integrate Deathholme and give us a mix of Lordaeron, Scourge and Forsaken architecture.

    Blizzard has an issue with the NElves,

    You see, when they released legion, they provided a Nelf city (Suramar) and also a NElf world tree (Shaladrassil) - the nightborne were a Nelf sub-race.

    Blizzard already know what they are going to do several expansions ahead, so when legion was being built, they knew they were going to do the massive war in BFA and kick off with Teldrassil destroyed - so they created everything the night elves need in the broken isles.
    Suramar their ancient city many of their leaders lived in and came from, as well as a lot of those who joined the resistance. Also the capital city of the Order of Elune. Val'sharah the birthplace of druidsm where the Malfurion/Tyrande/Ilidan first meet Cenarius and Malfurion is chosen by him - it is the place with the strongest connection to the emerald dream.
    Azsuna, the very first night elves to rebel against Queen Azshara, and likely the ones that kick started the resistance Malfruion kept going.
    The Vault of the wardens, the legendary prison of the order
    Black Rook Hold - the famous resistance head quarters against the legion
    Moonguard Stronghold - the Head Quarters of the famous Moonguard legendary battle mage group of the empire that carried both the night elves' conquest over Kalimdor alongside their priests and their success against the Legion and Azshara's forces.

    • It has a world tree for the druids
    • It has two locations for an arcane well in the Nighthold where the nightwell was or in Azsuna
    • It has the capital TEmple of Elune with the empowered Font of Elune for the priests
    • It has fel charged areas from the legion's areas ideal for demon hunters.


    It is basically a re-designed Kalimdor on a smaller scale having aspects for all the key parts of the night elves.

    • It's got a capital, and city that fits it's arcane grandeur and legacy, with a new night elf sub race central and touching all the other zones
    • It's got country for the druidic culture for duids (Val'sharah)
    • Country for arcane minded and wielding night elves (Azsuna) perfect for the new
    • Temples of Elune in every zone allowing the priests to be a part of every kind of night elf order (arcane, nature, demon hunting as well as the sentinels/wardens/hunters/moonguard)
    • Strongholds for all their key orders - Warden stronghold, Sentinel stronghold in Black rook hold, Moonguard stronghold for battle mage army.


    My point is they have already designed ALL what the night elves need, including a replacement world tree, capital the works. Then they decided that the nightborne would go horde, and then all of Suramar with all of the nightborne, rather than just some of the nightborne with the remaining staying affliated with the night elves or even becoming night elves with the cure of the arcan'dor.

    Question becomes:
    • Will blizzard scrap the broken isle move for the night elves because of the nightborne now going horde?
    • Would they make the night elves and nightborne share Suramar as a capital instead of design a new one, with the rest of the night elves making the rest of the zones their new home.
    • Will they choose to kick the nightborne out or let both stay with different afflisations and still work something out, whether as friends or as enemies forced to share part of the same city.
    • Or would they repeat the effort they've already done, build the night elves another city - after in a sense already worked on 5 night elves cities, and already having one (suramar), not a ruin.
