This thread is for those who want to talk about the Void aspect of Void Elves and the customizations they’d like to see with them.
I know, high elves and all that, while some of these options in my list below are possibly going to apply to high elf customization, they are still on the list for their application to the void theme of Void Elves.
On the topic of High Elves congratulations to all those who wanted high elves to be available through Void Elves. With the recently added natural hair colors and the previously added natural skin tones much of that request has now been completed!
Please note that I do not expect all or even any of these to come to fruition. They are desires and wants, that I’ve mostly pulled from the community, nothing more.
Feel free to tell us what customizations you too would like to see!
For those interested in the main High Elf thread at this time, I’ll link it here: (This thread is a tad out of date and no thread has effectively risen to replace it yet.)
Those with an interest for Blood Elves I’ll link their main thread here:
And Drede has put together a wonderful thread for customizations for all races!
This thread will be divided into a few parts:
The most likely options we’re pushing for at the moment.
Less likely options but still in the realms of possibility.
The List of Void Elf Customizations suggested so far. (always a work in progress)
Entropic Embrace Options - Common requests for Entropic Embrace (and some less common.)
Void Elf Heritage Armor, Weapons and Mounts Requests.
Telogrus Rift and the Void Elf Story - This is one part that is almost entirely my view though I may add concepts and ideas others suggest. Feel free to suggest your own view!
Several Other Threads of Note (Mostly Customization and Allied Race threads)
Let us begin.
The Most Likely Options
In this section I’d like to go over some of the Most Likely options that have been recently suggested. These are common and low impact to the model and form of the Void Elf but are still well within the realm of the void aspect. Some of these may or may not be useful for High Elf folk as well.
In particular I’d like to call attention to an entire Album made by Fiercelord from the EU forums. His contribution has by and large collected the majority of common requests in this field though I will also be adding in some other common and likely options he did not.
A fully realized Tentacle Toggle that can add tentacles to hair styles that do not currently have them as well as filling in the holes caused by removing the tentacles. This would be the full Tentacle Toggle option finally realized. Also all hairstyles added to Void Elves in the future should be built with this tentacle toggle in mind. In particular I want to draw attention to this mockup. (By Luoren.)
Also Tattoos are a very common request of varying nature. Here I will show off three specific designs that have been asked for such as Alleria’s Farstrider style tattoos(wavy type tattoos), N’zoth Void Runes and Spider tattoos. Further many have been interested in some sort of glowing tattoos either just glowing with the void, the color of the tattoo, or glowing while in Entropic Embrace.
Another version of the same tattoo concept.
Other Common Requests (some of which are shown in Fiercelords album) include scars, braids, more tentacle colors and more tentacles, Entropic Embrace as a skin tone, half blue half natural skin tones, expanded void colored hair, The Black hair our NPCs have available, new hairstyles, some tentacle hair styles where its all tentacle, various eye colors like pink light purple ashzara and nzoth eyes, Tattoos (generally similar to Alleria’s though also N’zoth rune styles and others.), third eyes (or four eyes), tentacles on a bald head, Spikes instead of hair, and new jewelry with expanded colors.
I will have many of these shown in the “List of Void Elf Suggestions So Far” section. (Though again many are above in Fiercelords album.)
The Less Likely Options
In this section I’d like to highlight Less Common and More Model Affecting customizations that have been requested. Things in this section will include options such as, Sha modifications, Ethereally wrapped Void Elves, The Ever Loved Voidberg, Extra mouths in places they shouldn’t be, Body tentacles, regular hair colors fading into neon, additional locations for tentacles to appear within the hair, Rainbow Hair, Tentacles wrapped with hair into braids and many others.
Note: I will only be placing a few examples here, for the rest please see the “List of Void Elf Suggestions So Far” section.
Voidberg: Claws, tentacle mouth, third eye, stomach mouth. (yes we gave him a hat and pirate clothes, sue me.)
Ombre hair with Starcursed hair running through it:
While many of these options are perhaps unlikely and some are major changes to the model, they are all amazing regardless and I hope one day to see them. Much of this section is actually my favorite suggested options so far.
List of Void Elf Customizations Suggested So Far
This section will include two parts under a “spoiler tag” as they would otherwise be quite large. Those two parts will be the master list; a quick reference for every unique suggestion I’ve had so far. And a section showing every available picture that I’ve been able to find or have been given to that end with a blurb about it. In my testing so far pictures have not shown up properly when I do this so I apologize in advance. At a later time I may instead put them all into their own Album on Imgur and have that instead.
This Section Is Still Under Construction.
Entropic Embrace Options
Entropic Embrace is a passive void elf racial that gives a chance to empower you with the void. It increases damage and healing by 5% for 12 sec. And has 33% proc chance with 60 seconds of cooldown. -Wowhead
Many have requested extra types of Entropic Embrace ranging from new customizable shades, full on skin tones, the ability to turn it off entirely, and options for the Hair and any tattoos to glow during EE. Some have shown interest in other types of particle effects as well. A few have even asked for the ability to use it in a similar way to Worgen’s Two Forms racial where it is togglable.
Honestly any one or many of these would be wonderful additions to Void Elves. Below are some examples.
Heritage Armor Changes, Colors, Weapons and Mounts
There are many among us who want to see the Heritage Armor Wings taken from the Chest armor and applied to either the cloak or as a separate cloak altogether.
I think all of these should occur. Decouple the Void Wings so we have more options for how to use them with our mogs and allow us alternate chest options for both a more armored chest, perhaps utilizing the void crystal seen on the belt as a centerpiece as well as a robe option more like the picture(s) above.
Many also desire differing tints of armor coloration for Void Elf heritage armor. (though this can be applied to all heritage armor) This would further make it easier for us to mog our Void Elves to our desires and needs and would be a welcome addition. In particular a purple and silver coloration, blue and gold coloration, blue and silver coloration and a green and gold coloration would all be appreciated.
Many would like to see more Starcursed mounts added to the game. Specifically a flying mount for Void Elves (Though heritage based flying mounts for all is a wondrous idea.) suggestions have come up for Dragonhawks and Hippogryphs in Starcursed form. Both are wonderful concepts and potential additions down the line.
The Telogrus Rift is a collection of floating rocks deep in the Twisting Nether tied directly to the powers of the Void. Likely the site of the world that Sargeras destroyed to prevent the Void from corrupting a World Soul it is immeasurably steeped in the Void. It is here that the Void Elves study and entreat with the void to further their research and power. So far it has been underutilized, really only being a collection of rocks with a few tents to house the population of Void Elves. This should change.
I see what it could be. Great darkened spires of silver, void crystals humming at their tops. Lodging for our people and storage for our food from Stormwind City. Anchors erected around void portals linking each island and Stormwind. One island dedicated to training Wayfarers and Scholars as they embark upon the path. Another island dedicated to our warriors, rogues and rangers training to protect and defend us on the battlefield. A third island for our magisters and priests to further study the void and advance our cause. At the center island surrounding the void storm, now contained, an edifice to give our recruits the infusion of the void they need to take their final step into a new life.
The doors are open to us. It is time we walked through them.
These things should be done to give us an actual home within the Rift and to further some lore for us. Things to make it clear how we make more Void Elves, showing the Wayfarers and Scholars not only learning in classes with Locus-Walker and other magisters but training their void powers in other areas as they master them. Finishing up with an NPC event showing recruits undergoing a ritual at the contained Void Storm to become full void elves, coming out of the process with a Randomized Assortment of Void Elf Customizations, running the whole gambit from Alleria to Umbric to any other options that are added to us.
Some have even shown the desire to have an embassy of sorts for Alliance High Elves within the Rift, if only to keep in contact. Alleria is the sister of Vereesa after all, and there are a few other scant groups of High Elves who may have concerns with this new group of growing elves.
In any case these changes and additions to the Telogrus Rift will help players easily be able to see how new void elves are made, how we live, what we do, and even still provide ample options for High Elf fans to take bits of story from the zone as well.
I’d also like to see examples of void elves struggling with the whispers of the void, coming close to or even fully falling, and being brought back to our priests to be encouraged to resist and shown how to better do so.
Meanwhile heading into the future I’d like to see the Void Elves push to establish small enclaves in void rich areas across Azeroth and beyond, or at least to be present in those places looking into the void there.
