    Three millennia rested upon those shoulders; the white hue of hair that fell almost to his feet was due to age, not dark magics.
    there was no reigning.

    But this doesn't really help either anyway. Some stories mention sylvanas mother dying during the second war, some say sylvanas was already ranger-general before the second war began.
    So not only does this mean we don't know how old she could be, we don't even know how long she was ranger general of silvermoon or when her mother died.

    Lorash only claims to be born during the exile of the Highborne. In fact, the whole character is riddled with flaws. The Night Elves showed mercy to the Highborne and he despises them for it, yet he has no problems working together with the Orcs who invaded his homeland 20 odd years ago.

    Lorash was a bad attempt at a character and should've stayed dead.

    it also confirms that Alleria fought in the Troll Wars.

    that or writers made a mistake as usual.
    There are several long lived blood/high elves in the lore, reaching several thousand years of life, Alleria is at least 3.800 years old now, she fought during the troll wars, her grandfather was still alive after the sacking of Quel'thalas, among the sunreavers are those who taught the original 100 human magic, Lorash was born before the founding of Quel'thalas and his mother died to the scourge invasion.

    The warcraft encyclopedia outright stated night elves and High/blood elves have pretty much the same lifespan nowadays, being thousands of years.

    they suffer from the same fate as Malfurion, Illidan and Tyrande.

    before WotA trilogy was made

    Illidan and Malfurion - +15,000
    Tyrande - +13,000

    WotA trilogy

    Malfurion, Illidan and Tyrande - several decades during War of the Ancients

    Encyclopedia:

    Malfurion, Illidan and Tyrande - grew up together millennia before the Sundering

    Wolfheart:

    Malfurion (and Illidan and Tyrande since they are the same age) was one thousand years older than Jarod.

    Yeah, kinda my feeling...though Galadriel and her husband in LotR kinda looked the same age (-ish). Maybe they grow quickly to adulthood (who wants to change diapers for 200 years?), then stay young and beautiful for 2500 years and age fast afterwards...no idea. Really not an area to start applying logic

    LotR is probably a small exception but writers usually like to depict young, beautiful female characters because women and their looks you know xd

    speaking of which, Naga apparently aren't all immortal but most immortal Naga are women.

    wouldn't be surprised if they are pulling this for some elves as well.

    Elf ages are weird and change to fit whoever is writing at the moment
    This world don't give us nothing. It be our lot to suffer... and our duty to fight back.

    I fail to see what your point is. The definition of millenia is 1000 years. So what Lor’themar said is true

    this has to be that Sylvos Windrunner guy
    Lightbound Orcs > High Elves

    My Lightbound Orc and Alteraci Human suggestion thread

    Blizzard should realize that Alteraci Humans will fulfill the Young Adult Dystopia Anarchy fantasy for Warcraft

    No it isn't. Even the wiki states he only claims to be this old (https://wow.gamepedia.com/Lorash_Sunbeam). Meanwhile Tyrande was appointed by the former High Priestess herself, and there are plenty of examples that prove she's clearly favored by Elune.

    A millenia is 1,000 years, I don't know where you're getting this "few" from... She could be like 1,200 years old and could have become ranger general when she was 150 or something.
    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don’t have one, you’ll probably never need one again.

    can't millennia be used as few thousands as well???

    besides, it comes from Alleria fighting during the Troll Wars.

    can't really see Sylvanas being born +1000 after that.

    seems... off.

    Hmm gotta have to edit that out, the guy is older than quel'thalas, which becomes rather evident when he recounts what happened during his childhood.

    A millennium is 1k years, millennia can be two and upwards.

    It can only be used in such a manner, it is the plural after all.

    The wiki is made by its users. That edit was randomly made by one user two years ago with no proper explanation in the history nor the discussion tab and has no source for the claim that his age being "older than what a High Elf life span is supposed to be". It does link to life spans article, but that article doesn't say what they want it to say. Because for the High Elves it has a bunch of "unknowns" and then vague "over 3800 years" for maximum age. So it's not exactly the grand argument you thought it to be.

    Yeah, no. That's a millennium. Millennia is plural. So @DemonHunter18 got that from actually using the words properly. Because using centuries as a comparison, someone that's just 120 years old isn't "centuries old".
