High Elves would be nice, I just love all the WoW elf races. My main will continue to be a BE tho.I just really wish for the Silver Covenant to have a resolution, would like if they integrated with the VE.
TBH I think their reasoning is pretty bad for why they wont do it, they just dont want to and should say that instead of trying to pull terrible excuses out of their butts.
I agree. Even if we disregard the entire RTS series, Quel'Danil Lodge, along with Jalinde Summerdrake, were in WoW from the very beginning. I think high elf is a vastly more natural candidate for allied races than void elf, which was only introduced recently and did not have much of a lore to begin with.
I think Blizzard has or should read this excellent post, so they know how wrong they are. And the world of the warcraft community wants and does not speculate so badly, as they have.https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/wow/t/the-unofficial-high-elf-discussion-megathread/18812
still waiting, why they can't add obvious things to the game
I don't get the counter-arguments for this one, or how people don't see how very bad the logic in them is.HIGH ELVES = HORDE BLOOD ELVES. IS LORE.What? No. High elves are an Alliance race. They've been there since WC2. They're still there in BFA (they're walking around in Stormwind). They've been around in most major conflicts in between, and always fighting on the side of the Alliance.They are different from blood elves in that they still choose to fight the Horde, and that they didn't choose to snack on fel. They also didn't get chased out of Dalaran when Jaina went nuts. And probably other differences I'm missing here...THEY LOOK TOO SIMILAR.Pandas are neutral. Pandas look exactly the same on both factions. Blizzard didn't like what Pandas did to faction identity and silhouette recognition, okay, fine. But as they've proven with Nightborne and Void Elves, they could add different customization options, or even a different animation skeleton and/or model, to fix this problem.THEY'RE STEALING A RACE FROM THE HORDE.Horde already "stole" them from the Alliance and WC2 era lore. That's probably why there's so much outrage so many years later.YOU GOT VOID ELVES ALREADY.And they completely dropped the ball by not forcing all remaining high elves to transform into void elves, along the lines of what happened to worgen; I would agree. But the fact remains high elves still exist (again, they're trotting around in BFA Stormwind) and in a way that is still separate enough from void elf lore to not be satisfied by just rolling a void elf character. High elves are the ones who have attempted to remain "pure" on down the years, refusing fel--and probably shadow. While void elves are like the power-hungry blood elves on steroids, delving into forbidden magic. Very different archetypes.(And while I believe a good compromise for this issue would just be adding high elf appearances to void elf customization, it is also true that the void elf racial powers aren't very in line with what we know of high elf powers.)THEY’RE A TINY POPULATION.So are void elves; there’s probably more high elves than there are void elves canonically!Also mechagnomes. Also night elves (or now after Teldrassil went kaput) and nightborne. Even the Darkspear were just one tribe of trolls. The Mag’har as well–they were one fort’s worth of evacuees. The draenei too…Lightforged or otherwise! Worgen? Forsaken? I’m surely missing some races here… So, no, I don’t think that argument stands without cutting half of our other playable races.YOU'RE JUST WHINING AND BLIZZ SAID NO/GET OVER IT.And this is when I think you're more butthurt over this than I, and stop trying to have a rational debate with you...
