Says who?

In regards to this:

Many websites have insulted female blood elves, saying that when compared to more curvaceous female races like night elves, trolls, draenei, dwarves and humans the female blood elves look like men.

I've seen ONE forum claiming that female blood elves look like "twelve-year-old boys" and a few of the same sort of...ahem, orientation cracks that they make about the males.  However, the most common complaint, by far, that I've seen about female blood elves is not that they look "masculine."  It's that they look "prepubescent." (I've seen the one "twelve-year-old boy" comment, and I-don't-know-how-many "twelve-year-old girl" comments.)

Now, I've seen the occasional RP or fanfic where a draenei/troll/orc character mistakes the gender of a male blood elf...but that's not quite the same.

As you probably noticed, I removed that part from the page. I didn't think it was relevant that much, and if I may say my own opinion, the blood elf female model isn't manly or pre-adolescent. Unhealthily skinny maybe, but in official- and fan art usually drawn with more flesh on them, and as it says on the lore page they're supposed to be exaggarated stereotype of "godly beauty" just like the males. --RocketBrother (talk) 18:40, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

I also took the liberty to remove the info on their underwear from the article. For I have no idea why would be anyone interested in knowing that, and if they are, why wouldn't they be capable of just starting the game themselves.. --RocketBrother (talk) 12:07, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

A powerful magical race does not need to look all macho. Personally I wish the Human male models were better looking. BobNamataki (talk) 20:04, October 4, 2009 (UTC)

No more Tapping

As of patch 3.0.2 which came out yesterday, Blood Elves no longer get mana tap. I found this out for myself with my BE. I then created a new character and leveled up to two and found out the old mana tap quest has been changed so that all you have to do is use arcane Torrent on one of the mana wyrms. Arcane Torrent now restores 6% of all mana in and on it's own. Meneldir (talk) 13:52, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

  • I found this out soon after the patch too. To be honest i feel kinda upset about it. I liked the Mana Tap ability; it seemed to fit the blood elves' common character pretty well. It feels kinda like the elves have been downsized without it.

Blood Elf guards

"All blood elf guards are male unlike the other races of Azeroth". I just wanted to point out that this statement is inaccurate, as dwarven guards are exclusively male as well. So I'm going to change this, unless anyone has any reason not to. User:Jormungand01/sig 21:54, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Technically thats true. All Ironforge Guards are male. However, there are female Mountaineers and other guards around Ironforge and throughout Dun Morogh. The thing about the blood elf "guards" is that they have a unique model- all the ones that use the "spellbreaker" model are male- there is no female version.
So you might change it to something like "blood elf guards have a unique model that is exclusively male, as opposed to most guards in capital cities." I wonder if its worth mentioning that there arent any female goblin bruisers in any of the Steamwheedle Cartel towns either.--Blayaden (talk) 01:30, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Usually Neutral?

Um... huh? Doomhand (talk) 05:54, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

They were "usually Neutral" at the time of the citation, Monster Guide, so it is before the blood elves joined the Horde. Rolandius Paladin.gif (talk - contr) 06:00, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

A New Blood Elf

Someone on my account wants a character that could heal, looks good. What Race/Class should she have. She wants Blood Elf female. BobNamataki (talk) 20:05, October 4, 2009 (UTC)

Death Knight Blood Elves = High Elves?

It is known that the most easily noticeable difference between High Elves and Blood Elves is the color of their eyes- High Elves have blue eyes and Blood Elves have green eyes. Yet.. I have noticed that Blood Elf Death Knights ALL have blue eyes. So... are they actually High Elves did this happen when they un-died? Maybe they died before the High Elves became Blood Elves (or at least started to use demonic power as their arcane source). What do you think? --Ankalian (talk) 23:46, April 4, 2010 (UTC)

Death knights have blue eyes because they're death knights. Blood elves are blood elves primarily because of their political allegiances. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 01:55, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Kael'thas

Should he be listed under leaders (formerly, or course)? I'm not certain, but I believe he was officially the leader at the beginning of Burning Crusade.--Ghoulmaster76 (talk) 00:21, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

I don't think Kael'thas was actually in Silvermoon at all between the city's fall and when he returned with the Burning Legion. He was in Dalaran when the Scourge invaded, apparently remained there to fight off the Scourge in the aftermath, and then went to Outland. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 01:05, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
From Kael'thas's own article "Kael'thas abandoned Dalaran its fate, and rushed to the aid of his people. Organizing the survivors, Kael'thas evacuated as many of his people as he could, and came to burn several of the defiled forests in an act of scorched earth, to spite the Scourge invaders. Kael'thas then observed the defiled Sunwell himself, and witnessed the dark, twisted energies pulsating from it. Fearing a further catastrophe, Kael'thas destroyed the corrupted Sunwell. Though he had saved his people from continued exposure to the dark energy, the destruction of the Sunwell resulted in a withdrawal-based lethargy for the elven race."
"Kael'thas took a number of his most powerful followers to join the New Alliance, though the majority of his people remained behind in Quel'Thalas. Kael'thas commanded the great ranger, Lor'themar Theron, to safeguard the shattered elven kingdom, to protect their exhausted people, and to keep what remains of Quel'Thalas untainted from the Scourge. Before leaving, Kael'thas also managed to salvage the skull of his father, Anasterian, from the ruins of Quel'Thalas, as well as the broken runeblade Felo'melorn, which he later reforged."
As explained above Kael did journey to or at the very least through Silvermoon, as he destroyed the corrupted Sunwell and reclaimed Felo'melorn. --Sairez (talk) 07:45, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
