Default As an High Elf player why would I want to fight the blood elves?

This has been something that has been bugging me for a while and was prevalent throughout the end of BC.

Why exactly would an high elf character wish to go against his people? They have never given us a real reason other than 'lolgoodguys'. Take WotLK for example. A high elf player has -no- real reason to go against the Sunreavers. Why would you go against your people who wishes to secure their rightful place in Dalaran? I don't see how an high elf could put other races above his own people. That right there is disgusting, honestly. Abandon your people to aid a selfish human, simply to etch out another meager existence under the Alliance's boot with no visions of greatness or bettering your race. Due to this whole Alliance fiasco, I am now a Horde player despite my hate for the faction.

Now this brings me onto my next point. Why the hell would an high elf player work with the night elves? Any high elfwould wish to fight alongside their old friends and family, and conquer his enemies. Why would I want to work with Tyrande, Malfurion ect. They give -no- reason for me to do that. Forced to kill the heroes of the Horde instead of working alongside them. Kill them because Metzen told you too. Great reasoning right there.

Basically, high elf have no motivation to fight the Horde. It's getting real old. Wish I could join the Horde.

I see conflation between the High Elves and the Blood Elves. This will not be tolerated!

A high elf has all the reasons in the world to hate and kill the blood elves..
1. Blood elves are wretched fel corrupted scum.
2. They're members of the Horde.
3. They socialises and allies themselves with loathesome beings like trolls, orcs and forsaken.
4. They've learnt nothing of the past, seeking to continue the mistakes of their forefathers.
5. They continue to call themselves blood elves.
6. They haven't wiped their warlocks and blood knights out of existence.
7. They exiled the high elves, they haven't killed off all of those that fought ubder the mad prince nor any of the ones that has murdered countless good men, women or children of tge Alliance.

This is just the tip of the iceberg.

All this made me laugh. Honestly/

They use fel, we don't know how much. Some more than others, stop painting them all as the same. Some have never even drained fel, simply have green eyes from living in Silvermoon. You're high horse is too high.

Members of the horde, yep, for survival, when the humans AND THEIR OWN KIN betrayed them, and they followed THEIR KING.

High Elves are Jaina's play things, her bitches, they are dying out. Lets hope sooner rather than later. They have brought shame on the elder race, at least Blood Elves have the balls to do what needs to be done, rather than hiding under Jaina's/human skirts.

Wait, so, they were imprisoned by the humans, betrayed MANY times by the humans (Alliance) and the Blood elves are the ones making the same mistakes. Lolno dude. Lolno. The Blood Elves are the ones rebuilding, the High Elves are the ones making the same mistakes.

THEY CALL THEMSELVES BLOOD ELVES TO HONOUR THE DEAD. Did you know that Red is the colour A HIGH ELF AND BLOOD ELF would wear to attend a funeral? They wear red because it they are honouring their ancestors and those who fell TO PROTECT THE HIGH ELF KINGDOM... THEIR HOME! What did High Elves do? run and hide with humans, betray their own people, Because they were frightened.... Wimps...

Um, What better way to combat the Legion, Old Gods, Big bad number 76 than using dark destructive magic, or commanding the Legion's own weapons against it. The Blood Elves are pragmatic above all things, they have suffered, GREATLY, that strengths body and mind. What did the High Elves do, Hide within human towns and become subservient to them. Draining mana like parasites. Blood Elves went 'well fuck it, i'll find my own magic and deal with it'.

They exiled people WHO BETRAYED THEM AND THEIR PEOPLE.

You're view is warped.

Because there is a lot of unresolved sexual tension between the two sides, and clearly they need to just have a big, elven orgy fueled on hate and lust to get it out of their systems. Not only would this relieve those tensions and help them start to peacefully work out their issues, but it might help their waning populations.

Yeah! I know, I tend to think Elf reproduction is a slow process. Rather than the lack of trying

I think it's more of a biological thing than anything, just because it's standard Elven fare. It's not that they don't try, they just don't have many kids. At least with the Drow, they have the higher numbers to balance against the fact that they tend to murder each other on a regular "survival of the fittest" basis. The Night Elves, on the other hand... unless they kept the Trollish habit of being stupidly fertile (ala the Drow), they're gonna feel it soon.

Seriously, both the Blood and High Elves should be considering their low populations and if murdering each other is really going to be worth it.

yeah that was my point too.

I believe that High elves are near dead now, they have low population, don't produce many babies, and have been fighting in constant war for the last 15 years.

Blood Elves are not fairing much better, afflicted by the same. I would think a child is a rare and honoured thing, simply because how difficult it is to conceive.

Night Elves, Poor guys had better be getting jiggy... Or they fucked.

Ofc, when needs must Blizzard will pull another 9000 population out their ass.

*Sigh*

On a gameplay level, it doesn't really bother me, although I do absolutely get why it might piss people off when it comes to the story.

It only annoys me because I would like to see the impact of war in gameplay. The story and gameplay SHOULD be the same thing IMO. I pay for a roleplay game.

In most single player RPGs, that could work, but with a MMO like WoW, they'd either have to phase every single quest or go to the Guild Wars/Dungeon Fighter Online (RIP) route of having everything outside of towns being instanced.

True enough.

I would still like to see a progressive timeline and the changes happening throughout the world that co-inside with the storyline.

I mean Silvermoon and Exodar are stuck in 2007, Cataclysm zones are stuck in Cataclysm. Ectect. ONce the zone has been completed the first time (Leveling process) update it to the right timeline.

I dunno, I am not expert on how to run an MMO. But I am allowed to moan about it the game!

Oh, I wish they'd update Silvermoon and the Azuremyst Isles as well. I just don't know if we'll ever see another full revamp of every 1-60 zone like we did with Cata, just because few people seemed to like it.

I don't know, I think many loved the revamp, the new questing and leveling process is great! But, Cataclysm as a whole was a big let down. Overall i think people got bored with the length between patches. There simply wasn't another content to keep everyone busy and entertained.

They did fix that in Pandaland though, regular updates, a passage of time was visible. I think this is why Pandaland has been so successful.

This post is so stupid that I question your intelligence. They had abandoned their allies several times because of their arrogant isolationistic tendencies and when ONE human general "betrays" them in return right in the middle of the motherfucking apocalypse they go on a prissy little moan, whine and bitch fest that has lasted for ten fucking years now. They get what they deserve, the wretched filth of fucking pathetic shit. Atleast the high elves have re-evalutated their former stupidity and I'd be fine if their entire existence is to make sure their entitled and pathetic excuse for a people finally ends.
Still going with the fucking notion that they call themselves "blood elves" to "honour" the fallen. They only did that because of the fucking trash they once called prince. A spoiled little shit that almost doomed himself and his followers alongside everyone else for his fucking weakness in controling his abstinence and his limitless lust for power.
Everything they do is the equivilant of taking a dump on the ashes of the fallen, of the brave and the honourable, of the just and the good. The Thalasians has sadly shown that they do not deserve to survive.

They wouldn't, unless they're Silver Covenant or those who were exiled to the lodge in EPL. They're all wretched now, anyway.

They have, but only in a limited manner.

And if I remember correctly Thalassian and Darnassian are very similar, sharing words ect.

However, If I also remember them working together didn't end up well...

God my memory is crap sometimes.
