Blood Elf Golden Eyes Customization Option in Battle for Azeroth

Recommended Posts

Blizzard added three new face options with golden eyes for Blood Elves in the latest Battle for Azeroth Alpha Build.

It appears that even existing races will receive additional customization options in Battle for Azeroth. The first addition were Upright Orcs and recently MMO-Champion posted about three Blood Elf face options featuring golden eyes here.

I like this. This gives some of the retarded players that are begging for "High Elfs" some peace. It also reflects the change the Blood Elfs have gone throught with the new Sunwell being of Holy Magic instead of Arcane.

Draenei+yellow eyes= light forged draenei race

blood elf+ yellow eyes =blood elf?

what are they exactly doing????

Remember that the Sunwell is Light infused now? DE's shouldn't call themselves blood elves anymore, but, idk, maybe sun elves (belore'dorei?).

Meanwhile DKs not getting new stuff again. Currently no allied race despite the fact that the legion DK campaign makes it very clear that dead are still being raised. In addition DKs are still only going to have blue eyes as blood elves still.

Belfs dont call themself becouse of eyes or something...blood elves are called like that after all that lost life during Scourge inavsion on Quel'thalas. To remember them and what happened to their nation. Also green eyes didn't come from using arcane magic. It was sign of fel, when Illidan taught them art of draining magic from fel and demons. That green floating crystal all over Quel'thalas is cointaned demonic energy which everyone could drain to sustain himself.

So as you can see there is no reason to change their name and there never will be any.

I really like this idea because their Sunwell became infused with holy light, so it makes sense that some might start to gain Golden eyes since the Sunwell has become their source of power again instead of those fel infused crystals they used back in BC.

Also, it will look awesome on Paladins. (priests too, I suppose).

 

With that said, there's still one thing that bothers me: Why do the Forsaken have golden eyes? By rights, their eyes should be Blue, (Lich king influence) Green, (fel influence since the Scourge was originally a bio weapon of the Burning Crusade) or Red (as represented by Sylvannas and Nathanos, an unknown influence). There doesn't seem to be any current lore reason as to why the Forsaken have those golden eyes.

"But there are so few of them, they couldn't possibly make them playable!" This argument is invalid because there are far fewer void elves than high elves.

"But blood elves are high elves!" No, they are not. Culturally they are completely different. The high elves are alliance through and through, the blood elves are a bunch of edgy traitors who chose to start siphon the life energy out of living beings to sate their addiction. The high elves couldn't go through with this and have a completely different outlook on life and other creatures, not to mention they have a different aesthetic style.

"But high elves look too similar to blood elves, they can't possibly make them a separate race!" Again, no. If they can add recoloured orcs with a couple of new hairstyles or some slightly paler draenei with longer horns they can take the blood elf model, give them some less red-tinted skin, new hairstyles, blue eyes and Alleria-style warpaint options.

"But they can't give the alliance TWO of the same skeleton!" Yes they can. The alliance already have two draenei races and the horde will have two orc races. There is not a single valid argument as to why we shouldn't get high elves already. And we will get them, trust me. It's only a matter of time. People have been screeching for them since vanilla, it is guaranteed money. The only argument i see is people getting really triggered for some reason that people want this core lore race that should've been playable since vanilla, contrarians if you will who dislike it simply because they think it makes them special and salty horde players that get far too invested in the faction conflict and start sperging out at the prospect of the alliance getting access to an original alliance race that they've been asking for for so long. High elves is to the alliance what brown orcs is to the horde.

High elves had only arcane energy from the old sunwell, not holy, that's why their eyes were blue. But I do agree it's silly they have both colors now. I think it's because people's preferences, so they kept the gree eyes. But I add that they should have had golden eyes since a while ago.

I know they had green eyes because of the fel, same goes for the orcs' skin color. And I know why they call themselves children of the blood. I just wanted to point out that there's a reason they can change their name, they had their redemption already when helping in the fight against kael and the legion, and have the Sunwell and their land back (theoretically), now properly named because of the Light infusion (you know the sun apparently has holy energies in wow, sunwalkers and stuff). I mean, they can look at the future now, and not dwell on the past and it's mistakes.

About the forsaken thing, I think it's because of the undead plague. you see, some areas and objects infested with the plague have this yellow coloring.

High Elvs, are the same as Blood Elfs. They just didnt drain mana out of living beings or started draining Fel. Only visual difference is their Blue, instead of Green, eyes. Its retarded to actually bring back the "High" Elvs when we alrdy have the Blood Elfs, Nightborne, Night Elfs and Void Elfs. The argument you stared with " yes they can, they alrdy have 2 of the same with Draenei and Brown Orcs" The alliance would have 3 Elf races if they did and we just cant have that imbalance. + the only "High" Elfs that are in the Alliance are being lead by Vereesa Windrunner and its just a very small part from Wrath called the Silver Conclave. Blood Elfs are High Elfs, just under a different name. They dont change Race beacuse they swapped the name, would be like if I started to call myself "insert generic racist name" and suddenly became a member of that race.

We can argue that the Blood Elfs that still call themself High Elfs are loyal to the Alliance but as I said before, that is through Vereesa Windrunner in her own Silver Conclave which isnt big enough to be considered a Race.

So maybe they had to change name of bloodelves and name them light forged elves or holy elves or idk...or maybe they had to add a new allied race for them...it gets more silly when you see draenei got 2 races for eyes colors but blood elves get same thing but no new race and both of eyes are usable?this patch is just confusing me!!I don't understand many things! I still can't understand if we get a paladin draenei and a warrior light forged draenei in same BG! Looks like brazzers made BFA lol! Anything about this patch looks crazy!

Not entirely correct. Blood elves are not traitors. They actually stayed loyal to the Alliance after they got decimated by the scourge and kept on fighting the scourge and their demon lords alongside the human survivors of Lordaeron. They only deserted the Alliance after Grand Marshal Garithos accused them of treason and ordered them to be collectively executed. Why did he accused them of treason? Because they made sure that the orders he himself gave them were carried out. Crazy... I know... After that they faced two options, stay with the Alliance and die, or survive.

Not to bore you with more lore, but the cultural differences between blood elves and high elves are extremely recent and fresh. In fact, the only high elves that did not name themselves "blood elves" were those who at the time were aligned with the Kirin Tor (not with the Alliance) under the command of Vereesa Windrunner. These high elves (known as the Silver Covenant) were able to keep their pretty blue eyes because they continued sating their addiction with arcane magic, which was and is still provided to them by the Kirin Tor. Otherwise they would´ve been forced to start syphoning energy from living beings just like the rest of their unprivileged brethren.

So the ones that were actually "alliance through and through" were the blood elves.

This isn´t that crazy from a lore perspective. Don´t panic!

The new optional look for the blood elves is due to the restored Sunwell. Blood elves can now nurture themselves with holy light instead of fel magic. That is why, as a player, you can choose whether you are a blood elf that returned to sate his magic hunger with the Sunwell or decided against it and keep on syphoning the energy of demons. Makes for a pretty cool role playing option. However regardless of what type of magic your character is consuming, you are still a blood elf.

Lightforged Draenei on the other hand are a different race of draenei. They were all eredar in the beginning, but when Archimonde and Kil'jaden bowed to the Legion this group of draenei didn´t follow the prophet Velen, but escaped Argus on another vessel (the Genedar). They then joined the Army of the Light and have been fighting the Burning Crusade for thousands of years. They infused their very bodies with the light, so they are not just fueling themselves with the light, they are one with it. By this they became a new type of draenei. That is why these guys are a whole new race instead of a cosmetic option.

So they are draenei with bit difference...not a new race. ..

Pretty much like Mulgore Tauren and Highmountain Tauren, or Darkspear Trolls and Zandalari Trolls, or Ironforged Dwarfs and Dark Iron Dwarfs. Call them sub races if you will.

      Today's hotfixes come with a lot of nerfs to Queen Azshara. Vitality Conduit now correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields, and more.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Queen Azshara When either Aethenel or Cyranus is slain on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty, there is now a 3-second delay before the other one gains the Torment buff. Azshara's Indomitable is now summoned 10 seconds later than previously observed on Mythic difficulty. Tidemistresses have 5% less health on Mythic difficulty. Fixed an issue where casting either Moonfire or Regrowth twice in a row while affected by Repeat Performance was not triggering the silence. Fixed a bug on Mythic difficulty where the damage effect from Deferred Sentence could trigger the healing reduction from Obey or Suffer right as the decrees transitioned between each other. Siege of Boralus  Corrected an issue where players’ pets were unable to attack the tentacles during the Viq’Goth encounter. Items
      Heart of Azeroth Vitality Conduit (Essence) correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields on them. Learning new ranks of Conflict and Strife (Essence) should now properly grant achievements such as Power Up.

      Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1, according to Blizzard, despite the fact that in previous Seasons, it ended around the twelve-week mark.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Is this being cut off soon? Or are you leaving it on indefinitely?
      It’s been 8 weeks now, and 8.2 kicked off with 4 weeks of AK already calculated into the game, so in theory, we’ve had 12 weeks of AK at this point. AK ended around the 12-week mark in the prior seasons.
      This is an inquiry, I’m not asking that it be cut off. I think they should leave it on, but that wouldn’t fit the prior seasons.
      No to both questions. 🙂
      As things currently stand, Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1.

      Blizzard is working on some hotfixes for Queen Azshara that will go live with maintenance in each region. The final boss of The Eternal Palace will be nerfed soon so that more guilds can fill the Mythic Hall of Fame one week ahead of Classic launch.
      The faction imbalance is quite strong with this one because only 5 Alliance guilds have defeated Mythic Azshara so far. On the Horde side of things, we've got 30 guilds that downed the final boss. Hopefully, more Alliance guilds will down her after the nerfs, so that cross-realm raiding will be enabled soon.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’re working on the following hotfixes today. We intend to apply to these changes to the Queen Azshara encounter with weekly maintenance in each region:
      When either Aethenel or Cyranus is slain on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty, there is now a 3-second delay before the other one gains the Torment buff. Azshara's Indomitable is now summoned 10 seconds later than previously observed on Mythic difficulty. Tidemistresses have 5% less health on Mythic difficulty. Arcane Wards now energize slightly slower for smaller raid sizes on Normal and Heroic difficulties. Fixed an issue that allowed Arcane Vulnerability to apply when the victim wasn’t in line of sight of Queen Azshara. We’ll update this post if there are any further changes, and when the hotfixes go live.

      It's time to find out what awaits us in Patch 8.2.5 which is now available for playtesting on Public Test Realms.
      Welcome to our Patch 8.2.5 content hub. We will be frequently updating it with links to our latest news coverage.
      Patch 8.2.5 Release Date Speculuation
      Based on the datamined Vulpera mug icon, it's safe to assume that the Allied Race will go live before next Brewfest, which is on or before September 20th.
      Allied Races
      While no Allied Races have been confirmed for Patch 8.2.5, we're speculating that Blizzard is adding Mechagnomes and the Vulpera of Vol'dun this time around.
      The Future of Allied Races Vulpera Coming in Patch 8.2.5 New Goblin and Worgen Models
      Blizzard is adding new models for both races introduced back in Cataclysm. Blizzard confirmed that there will be no Heritage Armor in 8.2.5.
      Goblin and Worgen Models Preview Celebrate 15 Years of Warcraft
      November 2019 marks the 15th anniversary of World of Warcraft, and players who log in during the event period will receive a celebration package in the mail with a Lil' Nefarian pet and other in-game goodies. Throughout the duration of the event, you’ll be able to participate in three unique raids with iconic encounters from past expansions along with an old-school-inspired Alterac Valley battleground. Players who defeat all nine bosses in the raid wings will receive the Obsidian Worldbreaker, a Black Dragonflight mount inspired by Deathwing. Players who participate in Alterac Valley will receive a new anniversary event currency which can be exchanged for two new mounts: the Stormpike Battle Charger (Alliance) and the Frostwolf Snarler (Horde).
      Obsidian Worldbreaker Mount Preview Frostwolf Snarler & Stormpike Battle Charger Mount Preview 15th Anniversary Alabaster Mounts Honeyback Harvester (Bee Mount)
      Alliance players will finally be able to get their hands on the long-awaited Bee mount (Honeyback Harvester)
      Where Is My Bee Mount? New Timewalking Raid: Firelands
      When Cataclysm Timewalking is active, max-level players will be able to form raid groups and enter the Sulfuron Spire once more. As with previous Timewalking raids (Black Temple, Ulduar), your gear and power are scaled to the challenge, and all the bosses and rewards you expect lie in wait.
      Party Sync
      Blizzard is experimenting with a new mode in the forthcoming patch that makes it easier for players in a party to do quests and play together: Party Sync. When players activate Party Sync, everyone in the party becomes aligned to the same quest state, including phases. By mousing over a quest in your tracker, you can see who is on the quest, what their progress is, and who’s ready to turn in the quest. There’s something else we’re going to try out on the PTR, a “replay” quest feature. This will allow players who have already completed certain quests to replay those quests with their friends for rewards that are appropriate to their current level, regardless of the original level of the quest.
      They're also relaxing level restrictions on queueing for instanced content with your friends. This allows lower-level players to queue for content in their level range, and higher-level players can choose to join them by having their level scaled down while they’re in the instance. This feature will be available for dungeon instances for PTR Week 1, with PvP instances being flagged in the following weeks. Please note that unlike Timewalking, when your level is scaled down via Party Sync you will temporarily lose access to abilities and powers (such as Azerite traits) with requirements that exceed your reduced level.
      Recruit A Friend Returns
      Coming in 8.2.5 is a revamped Recruit A Friend system. If you have active game time you’ll be able to recruit your friends—both brand-new to the game and returning champions—to share in your adventures. To do so, you’ll be able to use a new URL generation tool to create a custom link to give to your friends. By following the link, you’ll be connected to each other and will be able to see if they have purchased game time, resulting in rewards for you! For each month your recruits have active game time, you’ll earn a new reward such as unique pets, mounts, game time and more. These rewards unlock per month and scale with how many months your recruits have subscribed for. And, of course, with Party Sync you’ll be able to journey with your friends on any of your characters. We’ll have more information about Recruit A Friend rewards before 8.2.5 release.
      Recruit-a-Friend Mount Preview: Explorer's Dunetrekker The Story Continues...
      We datamined new models for Wrathion, Valeera, Zekhan, and Calia Menethil in 8.2.5 Build 31337. Wrathion is part of the story in the new patch and he's involved in a Karazhan Scenario and we also found a new Hearthstone Tavern in the game.
