    The garrison I was forced to spend the entirety of WoD in consisted of huts made from dirt and poop, so no, the Blood Elf aesthetic is not dominant in the Horde, it's still Orcs. Do Blood Elves dominate the narrative? No, though admittedly they get more spotlight than, say Tauren or Darkspear trolls. However, Blizzard have mostly shifted to character-centric stories instead of faction, or at least race-centric ones, so you could rather ask if e.g. Lor'themar dominates the Horde narrative (which he doesn't).

    Also I only skimmed over the novel quoted in the OP, because there's probably another hidden agenda somewhere in there to make Silvermoon and Suramar Alliance again. The only point I agree on that I glossed over is that the Blood Elves should get back to their TBC identity again. I'd gladly sacrifice the Sunwell for it.

    Agree, imagine what is possible nowadays, that art of the sunwel in the back with that huge dock looks amazing.
    And also blood knights for sure.

    if anything the Blood Elves, Nightborne, and the Zandalari should be leading the Horde at this point

    No, the primary horde aesthetic is still orc. The narrative arc isn't about blood elves in any significant way (at present). A lot of players play blood elves on the horde side but that's not even close to what passes for a horde aesthetic or narrative.

    The only reason why my Paladin main is a Blood Elf, is that I didn't like the lack of a proper boot graphic for Tauren and Trolls. Yes, I'm petty like that, but my lol 60 Zandalari Paladin was race changed after I couldn't stand it anymore.

    This all could've been avoided had Blizzard allowed me to be an Orc Paladin and all would've been right in the universe again for me.

    they should make a story where some rogue Blood Knights go out of their way and help the Mag'har Priests to "command" the Light like TBC Blood Knights to further spite the Lightbound. That would be metal AF.\

    Imagine the Holy Paladin order being originally used to defeat the Old Horde and now you see Orcs commanding the Light itself without the need of faith.

    Narrative wise, no...it's been centered around Orcs for years, Undead a bit with Sylvanas in BfA. Belves haven't had that much focus since probably BC
    What evidence do you have of this?
    When Blood Elves were introduced they were the only race Horde had access to Paladins.
    Blood Elves are High Elves!

    Every racial demographic? They're always 10% or more ahead of the next most popular race on the Horde...

    People want to play pretty characters, go figure.

    This. Has there ever been a blood elf base town anywhere but Outland? Have there been any tauren towns since Thunder Cleft?
    The most difficult thing for people to do is objectively look at something they don't like and be able to accept that it is not bad, that other people like it, and if it was changed to the way they'd like it that other people would not like it and want it changed back. The second most is to receive something they didn't want or ask for and be grateful for it, not immediately demand what they wanted instead.
