Stopping in to support Horde San’layn Again.
I popped into the forums, breaking my silence to support the Furbolg thread, which I encourage people to check out if they like the ideas presented here: Unofficial Playable Furbolg Discussion Thread
That said, I’ll also say I still hope the best for the community and that we eventually make a difference in getting San’layn added.
I know it’s extremely scandalous for me to have an opinion on these forums, and every time I speak, I cause a lot of pain and suffering due to my opinions that (you ready for this madness?) San’layn should be on the Horde. I know, I really shouldn’t be saying that and risk offending anyone, but I just can’t seem to keep my mouth shut.
That said, other people with the opposite opinion are perfectly allowed to have it, and I’m perfectly allowed to disagree. It’s a hard concept to grasp for some folks, but indeed, on the internet people will have different ideas/opinions, and we just have to accept that if it’s regarding pixels in a video game.
I fully respect those who disagree and think they should go on the Alliance or who want exclusively playable Venthyr (without any addition of San’layn lore or customization). Even if I personally disagree, and really want Horde San’layn, I will never insult you as a person or harass for the opinion. I will point out that I disagree, because that’s how forums go, or quote reasoning I’ve seen directly.
That said, I’ve disagreed respectfully with plenty of folks in the past who are friendly with me. It’s no secret that I’m against factions, but many of my friends are pro-faction in some fashion–and that is okay. Honestly. We can still get along due to that, so I implore people to get along when people are respectfully disagreeing with other opinions too.
If you still have an issue with me after all of that is said, kindly put me on ignore, and listen to this song:
As for San’layn, until we get fully playable Horde void elves/the faction barrier is shattered 100%, yes, I think they should go Horde. Void Elves have their own unique theme, that being the void, and can also look like regular blood or high elves. Blood elves don’t have that unique theme. If San’layn are to be customization, they should go to the Blood Elves. Undead have been a Horde thing, and I simply disagree that they fit into the Alliance. Flat out. People can make their arguments all night, and I will disagree, my opinion isn’t changing on that.
I think they should be an Allied Race, though, given they are unique enough to be that way with what was mentioned recently & on the first thread. I support that more, but if they have to be customization (and Blizzard SERIOUSLY needs to step up their game with lore, given Wildhammers should have gotten much more than they did) then they should be horde.
Again, until I can be in my Horde guild on my void elf & enter Horde Cities with no problems at all, so the total end of the faction barrier? No, San’layn should not go on the Alliance. And yes, I’m allowed to have that opinion.
On a happier note, I’ll share some art.

These are vampires from a project that I’m working on based on ravens. Obviously not so applicable to San’layn, who are bat-based, but we can still both appreciate some great art and look at the implications for customization.
I’d look at their claws, eyes, and teeth. The jet-black eyes are a great example of some eerie customization that can happen here. Body piercings are another thing that I’ll mention wanting for elves. (Well it should be a thing for all races but I’m an elf player, I’d like to see it on elves too.)
