I know this topic gets ya’ll real hot and bothered but Void Elf customization sucks, even with the options they added in Shadowlands. Nightborne too. Just awful.
My mage is a blood elf. My friends moved to alliance and I went with them and I’d like to move my mage and Void Elf seemed like a logical step, so I did the (very cool!) Argus questlines to unlock them.
I’d seen the customizations before but upon trying to put together something I liked, I uh, ran into some issues:
Hair tentacles. It feels like maybe these shouldn’t be hard-coded into the hair itself and should instead be something you can attach like Night Elf leaves. But even if they aren’t, there are only a couple of options that don’t include the hair tentacles and for males at least it’s just a couple of emo kid cuts. This kinda sucks because the un-tenticled options are already there. Keep in mind that as an allied race, their options are fairly limited to begin with. Even if you are OK with the tentacles, they don’t have very many cool hairstyles, and none of them feel very elf-like. Plus frankly they all kind of lack detail and look like colorful blobs. By the way…
The colors. I don’t necessarily need blonde, but I find it weird that Void Elves don’t have access to a single “natural” hair color. The only other race I can think of that doesn’t have one at all is Draenei and the deep purple/eggplant one is at least kinda close at a distance. Void Elves have a bunch of deep jewel tones and a few grey ones that kind of fade into blue or other colors but don’t have access to like, black. Or brown. Or even blonde. Can we have just one? Call me boring, I don’t like jewel tone hair.
Void Concept was not explored in a very imaginative way. Blue skin and tentacle hair? Not like… void-y eyes? Or uh… Scars with void coloring or something? Void effects are so visually appealing but almost none of that translated into cool stuff for Void Elves. It’s just tentacles and Night Elf skin.
Anyway don’t worry Blood Elves I’m not coming for your precious blonde hair necessarily, you can relax. I’m just looking for a little more visual appeal, Velves kinda weird right now.
