Ok, did you feel this way when they announced black skinned Blood Elves, because that wasn’t part of this so called “identity” you speak of for them. Where as High Elves = Blood Elves, completely for all intents and purposes, minus politics and some morals. These options are to represent the High Elves of the alliance without making a new race, as well as the new Elves who undergo intensive Void training with Alleria & Locuswalker.
I guess I just don’t understand how it is a slap to the face to someone that the other faction of which you also pay for the option of, now has more options, if anything, you’d think it would make people happy to be said race on either side, I sure as heck am to get to do that.
With culture being the only separating factor, really (voidforging aside), as I’ve mentioned before, there isn’t a need for them to look different or a reason for it to look different honestly. Except maybe some tattoo or jewelry differences, but everything else technically should be the same. Culture doesn’t dictate hair or skin color, which is all I’m saying, along with many other people.
Not to mention that until they do Unholy light stuff, or get some glyphs for Shadow spells, Void Elves won’t be Paladins…even though we have High Elf paladins and Half Elf paladins.
Which, as you brought up with Elisande, the high Elf tones and potential hair color or ear sizes if we get them, is to represent High & Half elves from human mingling and what not. Without making yet another playable Elf race. Why don’t people understand that?
Also, I’ve never said that Blood Elves are more superficial?
BUT thinking about it, there was a BLUE POST talking about Void Elves recieving the navy blue/black underwear on their High Elf skin tones, in Beta atm they use Blood Elven underwear still. So I wouldn’t be surprised if other options ie: a couple natural hair colors and maybe ear size sliders found their way to them by launch or perhaps in patches to follow launch, as I’m sure over time other allied races will receive stuff too, I mean, they already are getting some things by the looks of it.
