Big Blood Elf Customization Thread

I can’t even figure how they thought leaving it like this is acceptable?

They clearly know people want options… Otherwise the Dracthyr wouldn’t have been given more than any other race…

Blizzard said they’re listening… But I don’t know who it is they’re listening to cause it isn’t anyone I know.


This, oh so this. Blizzard how long have you been listening and who have you been listening to?

You have been ignoring the blood elf community for YEARS. They deserve customization and a hd revamp of Silvermoon City.

PS: While you are at it, give void elves some more hair styles and a toggable entropic embrace. :smiley:

Makes you wonder who Blizzard has really been listening too? I thought Shadowlands was going to be where we would recieve customizations options to express ourselves more, but it doesn’t seem like that, considering there is only a small handful with a large amount of options, a large handful with very little options too, and a small handful that got nothing.


Even counting jewelry, compared to some races, female belves got screwed as well.


It was all just so lackluster.


All right finally had some time to get it worked on, but I’ve made some changes to my Belf Customization List.


Blood Elf Customization List

Still a work in progress…

Eyes, Hair and Faces
A great deal of options remain unexplored in regards to hair, eyes and faces and should be added to give Blood Elves a greater amount of options. Eye colors especially could be expanded for not only several new shades but also for greater player options.
Hair for Blood Elves should be expanded to show not only the prim and proper high elf styles but also to represent the militaristic Blood Knights, the wayfinding Farstriders and the cultural spread of Horde styles found among the orcs, trolls and tauren.
And honestly… just more face options…

  • New Eye Colors including, Amber, Orange, Red, Pink and Black. Colors that also sit between green and gold, green and blue and green and purple to represent blood elf eyes shifting from green to either blue or gold.
  • Phoenix Eyes
  • Heterochromia Eye Options using all available eye colors for either left or right eye.
  • Blind eye options for both left or right eyes with options for every color available.
  • New Hair options including shorter medievial military hairstyles, Curly hairstyles, Farstrider braided and dreadlock hairstyles and Horde based hairstyles.
  • New Hair Colors including more shades of the hair colors we already have as well as pink and proper black.
  • Eyebrow options including short, medium and long.
  • Beard options including long full beards and different separated mustache, sideburn and chin options.
  • Additional Faces.

Warpaint, Tattoos and Scars
Options for warpaint, tattoos and scars should be added to Blood Elves a race that has been fighting for survive for years and struggled to get back to where they are now. Damage is expected.

  • Farstrider Warpaint.
  • Rommath Style Magical Rune Tattoos.
  • Henna Style Tattoos.
  • Phoenix Fire Tattoos.
  • Light Tattoos.
  • Scar options for the head.
  • Scar options for the body.
  • Damaged ear options.
  • Arcane Arm/Leg Prosthetics.

More options that don’t fit as easily into a category.

  • More shades of skin tones.
  • Jewelry being opened up to both male and female models.
  • Body Jewelry (Beads/chains) readded to the model and available for both genders.
  • Jewelry colors being expanded.
  • Ear Armor options.
  • Jewelry in Hair decoupled and affected by jewelry color options.
  • Underwear Color Options (Maybe tied to jewelry color).
  • Body Type options.
  • Makeup options.

By WoW Devs

There are a few Sub-race options that could easily be applied to Blood Elves including Darkfallen, San’layn and Felblood Elves.
Though the Darkfallen now also include Dark Rangers/San’layn as the same thing the differences between them compel me to place them seprately.

  • Dark Ranger Options.
  • San’layn Options.
  • Felblood Options.

Heritage Armor
Several additions could be added to the Heritage armor or changed to make it feel a little better overall.
This includes a better Boot option that is more in line with the gauntlet, a Lor’themar style coat for the hips and legs and additional color options.

By Somand

Paladin Mounts
While the Thalassian Charger is wonderful and emplematic of Blood Knights, its getting along in years now and could use an updated model.
Alternatively a new model using either a Courser or a Hawkstrider would be a wonderful addition to update the model and bring it more in line with the newer chargers added since its creation.

By Somand

New Classes
Some new classes have been suggested for Blood Elves, specifically Druid and Shaman. Depending on how the classes were done both could be good additions to Farstrider ranks.
Though the druid could be done as a arcane Botanist bending nature to their will.

  • Druid
    Between the Botanists of the Botanica the closeness of Tauren and troll druids and the Farstriders closeness with nature alone Druids make a good potential class for Blood Elves.

By Kagesatsuki

By Riotfury

  • Shaman
    Though only one individual there is already at least one thalassian studying the elements. This could easily be expanded out. (I suspect the Farstriders wouldn’t mind the help of shaman.)

Feel free to toss suggestions at me to add.

I’d pay top dollar for the Blood Knight heritage set recolor, topppppp dolllar.


You seem to have major quality loss on my images there for some reason, aside from the mount one.

Here are the old imgur links without any loss:


It’s very good. Thank you.


Strange, they show up the same for me.

Replaced the links. Thank you.


I want all of these so much :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Those felblood examples are so neat. Also I haven’t seen the dark sclera red eyes before! Those look lovely.


I will want San’layn as their own AR preferably but I’ll take em how I can get em these days.

Not sure who made the dark sclera version there but they are neat! (if anyone knows the person who made that let me know.)


Out of likes but agreed, as long as we get some decent customization & more than just red eyes, haha!


This, I am hoping if it’s just customizations it’s really good customizations so that people can have fun, enjoy themselves and feel happy after having so much lost due to sharing stuff with Void Elves and of course with San’layn and Dark Rangers if it’s just customizations instead of Allied Races we need all of the tools to be able to play as them despite only being Blood Elves with customizations. :hearts: :hearts: :hearts:


I would honestly do Felblood elves with Dh horn choices and wing choices but that’s just me.


I’m oddly taken with the feathery wings bit they seem to have. I used to think that was a small group that had that but it seems most Felblood if not all of them have em. They’re kinda neat.


They’re very cute winglets.

My headcanon is that they’re nascent wings and that over time they’ll get bigger and fluffier.


In a shocking twist no one saw coming 9.2.5 is a giant disappointment.


Imagine if they gave belves a glyph option to make our DH wings into fluffy feathered wings instead…

They don’t mention the tirisfal questline or the darkshore one… there may still be hope…


I don’t have it in me to keep hoping.
