First, let me get this out of the way. I’ll happily put my conservative cred up against yours. I bet I have at least 10 years on you and the only thing I’ve ever changed about my voting registration is my address. It is a hobby of mine to discredit bad left wing politics, I just don’t bother on these forums because it would be a crap show. So don’t think I am just another woke half wit calling you down. There are people in this world other than you, and yes Blizzard is eyerollingly woke. This is also a game. It is for everyone, no matter how dark their skin is. This was a good change to include people who should have been included. The lore is not a religion. It is the imagining of some nerds in southern California. Thus any change of the dogma can and should be changed simply to enhance the experience of the user.
I used to play with a person who is in the movie business, he told me Brandy Norwood played a blood elf hunter and linked me her character. (Just accept that I checked him out, seen his family, and I’ve seen his name in the credits in movies everyone would recognize like hunger games and MCU) I don’t know if she still does, but I’m glad she can have one that better represents her. This is not a “justice hard on.”
No. This is explicitly a retcon. High elves according to lore have light skin.
