Default What is right with the blood elves?

This is a blood elf love thread. I think the blood elves are a diverse and well represented race. They have distinct groups and cover a broad spectrum of morality. They interact with the world and their environment. They have a past and a future.

What is not to love about them?

Lore-wise, I think Blood Elves are doing better than every other playable race.

I won't dispute that. I love how much love my favorite race gets. It makes me so happy.

You may not, but I feel like there are a lot of Blood Elf fans out there that still think that the Blood Elves are as lore starved as the Draenei or Worgen.

Would be nice to have Kael'thas, but otherwise Blood elves are doing fine.

Which is silly of them, but I guess not focusing on the Scourge enough is a bit sympathetic.

One thing that I want to see from the Blood Elves is for them and the Dwarves to have at it in a zone. They are both very different and very similar.

Arcane Guardians vs Golems
Bows vs Guns
Agility and Skill vs Strength, Armor, and Fortitude
Magic vs Tech
Tall and Thin vs Short and Stout
Ect.

The only thing wrong with Blood Elves are High Elves.

High Elves take far too much lore from playable races that need it more, obliterate them for the future of Draenei and Worgen.

Blood Elves and Dwarves are the only races that are done right.

I think the only races done good are Dwarves for Alliance, then Horde it's Blood Elves, Trolls, Goblins, and Undead.

Just my opinion though.

It was always obvious Blizzard was trying to get rid of the High elves mostly in Warcraft III.

Then later writers, especially in the RPG tried to completetly retcon it so Blood elves were a small dangerous extremist cult to the High Elf majority.

I wouldn't even do this. I'd just not expand on them anymore. There's a big High Elf fan base and I think turning them all in to a group that they dislike alienates them.

Gallywix isn't the worst, and the Goblins haven't suffered that much from him.

Gallywix headbutted Garrosh in a future timeline in that one scroll story if I'm not mistaken.

Otherwise, he's a problem that's easier to fix than crap like Wolf God Varian the High King or Elune the Naaru.

There's mountains of Bilgewater Goblin corpses that were directly caused by Gallywix. Even by Goblin standards, Gallywix is repeatedly stated to be considered a monster.

That didn't help, if anything Gallywix should've been killed off rather then Garrosh.

How can you explain Thrall and the PC agreeing to put him in charge after all the crap he did in the starting zone.

So to review:

What's wrong with [playable race] is [specific concept].

1. Tauren / Thunder Bluff
2. Darkspear Trolls / the Darkspear tribe
3. Undead Forsaken / Sylvanas
4. Blood Elves / High Elves

Are we going to get threads for Orcs and Goblins?

Nah, just obliterate the Draenei. They're literally useless.

I disagree. They're a part of the story and should stay that way.
