I read your shit. You think that draenei make more sense in Dalaran than the high elves. Erthad and I have been saying that neither are appropriate fits, because Garithos's remaining army would have made more sense. Or better yet, as someone suggested earlier, simply have the two factions in the city be Kirin Tor and the Sunreavers. Problem solved.

the reason why the Draenei are brought up is because they're reaaaally similar to the High Elves, the War on Magic would certainly concern them and they have a less asspull excuse to dislike the blood elves.
I did, in fact, read that. But this translates into "high elves should not be their own faction in Dalaran and that draenei make more sense."

Man, that would've been so much better. Or even just do away with the Sunreavers completely and use Rommath and the magisters as loose allies against Malygos and his kill-all-magic-users shtick.

why do you ignore the part that really matters?

Because it doesn't? They're good at magic and distrust the blood elves. But yes, it becomes more of an asspull since draenei and blood elves cooperated together in the Shattered Sun Offensive against the actual evil blood elves who hijacked the draenei ship. Draenei may still distrust blood elves out of residual feelings, but the primary reason for the distrust is gone. Also, I'm not entirely sure how the Nexus War concerned the draenei. They may know magic, but they had not developed an attachment to Azeroth and its possible destruction. They have no idea who Malygos is. They have no historical connection to Dalaran or the Kirin Tor. That's a complete asspull.

And also, draenei judge individuals, not races as a whole, so they wouldn't be the best race to be opposing the blood elves.

And also, for whatever reason, Blizzard seems to be intent on ignoring the more "magical" aspects of the draenei and is more focused on the Light above all....

Never mind the fact that the Draenei know nothing of Northrend or the Blue Flight, unlike the Blood Elves - have no history with the Scourge or the Kirin Tor, unlike the Blood Elves and have no reason to care about Dalaran. Unlike the Blood Elves. Being good at magic is not a skeleton key of plot.

Were the High Elves in mobilized form a ridiculous idea? Yes. Almost, but not quite as ridiculous as the Draenei being there instead.

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

No one ever said elves are nice.
Elves are bad.

Hahahaha

think what you want, im still right. Like always.

The addition of helves was retarded, the addition of people that should be dead or undead is retarded and your arguments are even worse and show a closemindedness which borderlines in complete idiocy.

There was nothing wrong with the High Elves having quite the small army which has know been thrown into Jaina's.

I would really like to see a few Draenei or even just the one stay at Dalaran i mean it would show that they are adapting to the world along with get them involved... Even if its through Velen wanting to keep a eye on Jaina.

Cramming races into factions "just because they haven't had screen time" is stupid. Sure, the draenei could fit into Dalaran, they could have played a part in the nexus war but as a faction of their own to oppose the Sunreavers and Horde mages entrance from Dalaran-- a city by which they have no rights to dictate who can and cannot enter?

The addition of the Silver Covenant was superfluous, everything they did could have been done by portions of the actual Kirin Tor -- the fact that they looked the other way when Garithos around could have been built and expanded upon, Modera could have gotten some screen time trying to deny them access while Vareesa could promote said message to her husband. Or, whatever. While the new draenei allies arrive and help with the Nexus war.

I suppose it's easy to be right so often when your typical level of contributing to a thread discussion is a Lady Gaga gif.
