World of Warcraft: Shadowlands will allow blue-eyed Blood Elves and Void Elves

Lies, damn lies, and statistics.

Remember when people got very excited about finding blue eyes for elves in the customization options in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands? And remember when the official explanation was that those were NPC textures? It turns out that that answer was either a lie or something that the developers completely flip-flopped on, because a new post on the official site confirms that the expansion will allow Blood Elves to have blue eyes. Void Elves will also be able to have blue eyes. Now everyone gets to have blue eyes!

But wait, there’s more; Void Elves will also gain access to all Blood Elf customization options, meaning that if you want your Void Elf to just look like a High Elf, that option is there now. (But you’ll still be a little void. As a treat.) The reverse doesn’t appear to be true, but we imagine that people who had long waited for blue-eyed elf options will just be happening now in a variety of forms.

You know, void elves as an entire race that started with maybe a dozen BE tops and elves normally don’t exactly breed like Shofixti in Star Control 2 did, was silly in the first place. Why not just give alliance players high elves in the first place?

I’m not against more customization options to be clear, as one of the reasons I played CoX over WoW for most of their mutual live lifespan was that CoX had a vastly superior customization system, but the whole rigmarole and uproar over the idea of ‘pseudo-high elves’ could have been nipped in the bud and would make more sense to boot to just make high elves a playable race instead.

Elsewhere, WoW forum board’s, which have campaigning for High Elf threads, are on meltdown.

I haven’t played WoW since Cataclysm and I’m pretty tempted to pick it up when the expansion hits. I’m a sucker for character customization. :)

Meh. I liked the green/red/gold palette just fine. I guess the lore justification is that the corruption is wearing off on some elves?

Yeah, the fel corruption was eradicated from the Sunwell years ago, so as a result, lore-wise it’s also been eradicated from the Blood Elves who are now reverting back to their natural “High” elf state but also without the arcane addiction they used to have. I guess Warlocks and Demon Hunters would still have green eyes since fel magic is the source of their powers.

As for Void Elves, Alleria Windrunner’s been recruiting and converting what was left of alliance “High” Elves into Void Elves, and she somehow never turned purple or blue while everyone else did, so enabling these options makes sense for them IMO.

Demon hunters plain don’t have eyes period.

I already have a blue eyed blood elf! They’ve been a thing since all the way back in Wrath! Blue eyed void elves are a newer thing, but still a thing, having been added in 8.3

Blue eyes will make class combat and world quests interesting. Promise…

hehe hope you get them :P Indeed Blood Elves does not have pigtails like Night Elves! I would also like to have this option as well.
