High Elves are here!

Merry Christmas, Wyrmrest Accord.



In an upcoming Shadowlands Alpha build, Blood Elves and Void Elves will be receiving some new customization options that some of you may be interested in :wink:. We wanted to give you an early look at a few of these new options available to the two races, with the first being several shades of blue eyes to choose from.

Additionally, Blood Elves will have the option to choose from a variety of new skin colors and Void Elves will inherit the skin color options that are available to Blood Elves. Here’s a glimpse of the potential characters that you can create with some of the new options.

New Void Elf Customization Options

This is just a sneak peek some of the many customization options coming to your characters in Shadowlands! We look forward to seeing all the creations that you come up with in the future.


Holy dook, they must be doing worse than we thought. This is right up there with “Ogres for the Horde” on the Break Glass In Case Of… weapons.


I can’t believe they actually did it after years and years of saying it wouldn’t happen.

I think it’s probably just the devs going “Screw it let’s give the people what they wanted in 2007 after trolling them for the past 13 years”


Kul Tiran are right there so… probably coming in a future expansion, either Ogres or Mok’nathal (personally think this is more likely).


Good bye party for all blood elf rpers on hordeside Friday at 8 my house byob


void elves can’t be paladins so you’ll not be rid of me that easily


I’ll miss you and packed this good bye bag for you. Happy trails


Void elves can’t be paladins. So i’m not gone that easily.

My thoughts exactly. Especially with straight up “normal” skin tones for Void Elves.

It’ll be easier for you to ICly kill alliance if you’re a void elf. I’ll miss you ravenhul!


If void elves could be a paladin in this cases, i’d be gone to alliance in a heart beat.


Could always make a warrior alt (tbh, the better plate class) and just RP them as a pally in mogged Paladin tier sets


Blizzard be like:

In an upcoming build you’ll notice that most class/race barriers are gone. Enjoy

D: Those poor dwarves.

but then he would have to play the icky, foolish, unwashed warrior class instead of the magnificent paladin


Real quick question lore-wise. I know the sunwell was cleansed and is now all holy and stuff (hence the golden eyes we already have). Would there be a good lore explanation as to why/how Blood Elves would’ve kept their blue eyes or gotten them again?

I feel like I’m missing something.

High Elves that defected from the Alliance.


sunwell is canonically a mix of holy and arcane, so blue eyes have about as much justification as golden eyes


I personally don’t agree with this since it’s more so speculation. We really don’t know all that outside there being chaotic Void energies being in the well as well.

It would make for a great storyline if they explored the ‘essence’ of the well further since the consumption and sacrifice of the Naaru.
