    How can the blood elves be okay with the San'layn and not the void elves?

    Can someone explain this logic pls - San'layn characters are evil as fuck, and the stuff they do is terrible, but yet it seems the Belves aren't that bothered by it, but have a major issue with void elves - kicking them out "dangerous magic " (ahem, remember fel in TFT-TBC? remember Illidari??), but yet seem offended they re-joined the alliance and actually value it a lot more.

    Not to mention they are far more in line with the values the blood elves seem to eschew, yet they'd rather go with the San'layn...

    Someone explain to me how? ! Why?!

    Logic and WoW don't go together

    Hypocrisy. Only the blood elves can practice dark magic in Silvermoon, no one else is allowed. Even though the Sunwell is very far from Silvermoon (Arthas had to conjure a massive ice bridge over the sea to get there after Silvermoon fell), so the exile of the void elves was a stupid decision in the first place. All Theron and Rommath needed to do was NOT freak out and confine the void elves to a special sanctum or district of Silvermoon, in which all their movements and activities could easily be monitored. And done, you have an elite squad of Void users ready to defend Silvermoon, while actively researching new ways to harness and fight the shadows.
    I will tell you what I told my own son when he picked up his first blade and played at being a soldier. Whatever your elders have told you... War is not glory. War is seeing people at their very worst and choosing to protect them anyway.

    Void magic threatens the sunwell itself, that is all there is to it.

    I don't recall the Sin'dorei ever being "okay" with the San'layn - while there was a brief flirtation with the remaining San'layn joining the Horde in BfA, no Blood Elves were actually involved in the recruitment, with only Rokhan and Talanji really working with Blood Prince Dreven. Beyond this, though; the San'layn aren't functionally very different from Blood or Unholy Death Knights, both of whom are already part of the Horde and the Alliance.

    On the other hand, Void magic itself has proven deleterious to the Sunwell - which given its nigh-sacrosanct place in Sin'dorei culture would explain their lack of enthusiasm for Void Elves or anything else Void-related.

    We did but build his pedestal,

    I might be missing something here but when or where did the BEs become besties with the San'layn?

    On another note, Void Elves beins void infused and all, are a direct threat to their very source of power (The Sunwell) so as radical as it might seem, its totally understandable that they choose to ban Void practitioners from Silvermoon.

    They didn't, just speculation on the Op's part.

    Also Blood magic is a form of Life magic, completely different to Void magic.

    Rommath was opposed to the research Umbric and his followers were pursuing not because it was "dangerous magic," but because he deemed it a direct threat to the Sunwell.

    They were blood elves when Rommath had them exiled, and only became void elves afterwards, so I'm not sure where you're going with this.

    Or as some like to call it a "Blizzard Brand of Blandness"®™ or BBoB for short.

    You learn the reason why in the blood elf heritage armor questline.

    void magic is a threat to the sunwell, blood magic isnt (some blood elves are practicing blood magic for the blood golems)

    void elves willingly decided to study the void, san'lyan were ressurected by arthas

    I mean only those aligned with the blood elves government.

    Blood Elves are not okay with Void Elves because.................

    .....................................................................................

    .............the Alliance needed the Blood Elf character model

    Same reason the Alliance, particularly humans, were completely okay with Death Knights but still considered the Forsaken abominations.
