"Dark" blood elf

Their lore reason for Humans is that they have always considered humans to be diverse, ie: human diversity in its entirety. But it’s not subject to anything beyond that because it’s Azeroth.

I would say their reasoning for BEs may be the same. Either way I applaud them. Use the customization or don’t, but it shouldn’t effect you.

Pandaren don’t look like irl asians. They look like Pandaren. They don’t need to explain why there’s red Pandaren with a long tail, for instance.

They are just typical Blood Elves that spent too much time laying out by the SUNwell.

True, but if they want to make it interesting they will add a backstory and a culture.

I would say yes in the way of diversity. There’s nothing suggesting that a group of aliens or fantastical beings in any world is all a carbon copy of one set features. It should be implied imo that diversity exists in all forms of …races. Fantasy or not :slight_smile:. SO yeah, i’d have to agree with your post here.

If it helps, could push the lore team that darken blood elves come from wherever those ships with the unicorn sails disappeared to. :thinking:

I’m sure there are some tanning booths in Azeroth. Seeing as Blood Elves are slaves to fashion, I’m sure they’ve been using those tanning booths.

Exactly. Just how there’s really light blue Draenei and dark purple Draenei.

My dude, do you have any idea how volatile elf skin color is? It’s, like, their entire lore. Blood elf demon hunters already have the option to be shades darker than their Silvermoon brethren.

That is not the case and I think you know that.
Everyone supported the customization options on humans but it seemed really weird on blood elves when they were all supposed to have turned pale when they were reaching Quel’Thalas in the blizzard.

silvermoon city is really more like sunlight city. never understood the silvermoon part, since the moon is not even a feature in any of their iconography. its more a word you’d find describing a night elf city

Mm, again I already said this earlier but there’s nothing suggesting that with night elf skin color varieties that the equivalency of the skin color for night elves simply wouldn’t just be transferred to high elves when they evolved.

^ That is in lore, its not being as diverse as humans so much as they were mutants. Slight and mealy mutants.

That’s a very tenuous lore assertation. I don’t think “diversity” itself is even mentioned in blood elf or human lore at all.

I think it’s prolly that it was first settled just after they arrived there, and shortly after their exile, and back then the moon was still a big part of their culture. Since then, I imagine the name just stuck.

Well, this option lets you emulate some of that fantasy if you wanted to be, say, a warlock instead of a demon hunter.

Just saying, more options should be seen as liberations, not constraints.

It’s a pretty weird change imo too… I don’t know how mutated night elves all the sudden started having different races similar to humans lol
