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.

      We have another huge batch of 8.3 hotfixes before the weekly reset, with big changes to Corrupted items and the raid being the main focus. We also get a buff for lesser vision rewards, huge nerfs for Twilight Devastation and Echoing Void in PvP and a lot more. No word on the double-kill on the same reset and missing achievements for N'Zoth we talked about earlier today unfortunately.

      There's also a minor fix for Classic as quest credit for the Elune's Blessing quest should work better now.
      January 27 (source)
      Achievements
      Fixed a bug that prevented eligible players from receiving credit for It's Not A Cult if a raid member died during the N’Zoth the Corruptor encounter on Normal or Heroic difficulties. Creatures and NPCs
      Credit for rare creatures in the Vale of Eternal Twilight and Vision of the Twisting Sands is now shared. The Spirit Drinker creatures should no longer get stuck in an immune state. Dungeons and Raids
      Ny'alotha, the Waking City Corrected an issue that prevented Protection Paladins’ Blessed Hammer (Talent) from dealing damage to Wrathion, Drest'agath, and Il’gynoth. Wrathion Fixed a bug that prevented players from looting Wrathion if he was defeated while transitioning. Maut The amount of mana gained by Maut through Dark Offering has been increased on Normal difficulty. Mana gained by Maut through Devour Manifestation has been increased on Normal difficulty. N’Zoth the Corruptor Harvest Thoughts no longer counts player pets and guardians when dividing the damage and Sanity loss effect. Slightly expanded the distance at which melee characters can attack Exposed Synapses on Normal and Heroic difficulties. Horrific Visions
      Fixed an issue where Madness: Split Personality and Madness: Dark Delusions removed players from stealth. Lesser Visions
      Starting with this week’s resets, the first Lesser Vision daily quest of the week now gives 3000 Coalescing Visions (was 2000 Coalescing Visions). Items and Rewards
      Corrupted Gladiator's Spite ’s on-use ability cooldown has been reduced to 60 seconds (was 90 seconds). Humming Black Dragonscale ’s levitation effect no longer triggers if the player is affected by a Neural Silencer or Magical Intrusion Dampener . Writhing Segment of Drest'agath 's damage has been increased by 20%. Corrupted Items Echoing Void (Corrupted Effect) can now only trigger from abilities that are on the global cooldown. Echoing Void can now be removed by abilities that dispel Magic effects. Twisted Appendage ’s (Corrupted Effect) health has been reduced to 1% of the player’s maximum health (was 20%). The ground spell effect indicating Eye of Corruption 's (Corrupted Effect) radius of effect is now easier to see on sloped terrain. Lingering Psychic Shell Now applies an absorb shield that prevents 80% of incoming damage, up to the amount of damage indicated on the item. While inside Ny'alotha, the Waking City instance, the wearer’s Corruption Resistance increases the total amount of damage absorbed by up to 50%. Developers’ note: Due to several issues with this trinket, we have changed its functionality to be more intuitive. The tooltip will be updated in a future patch to more accurately reflect the trinket's functionality. Twisted Appendages (Corrupted Effect) can no longer be struck by area-of-effect attacks such as Mages’ Arcane Explosion. Killing Twisted Appendages no longer grant on-kill bonuses from Talents and abilities (e.g. Warriors’ Victory Rush ). Fixed a bug which prevented Ineffable Truth (Corruption Effect) from triggering on some melee and ranged abilities. Heart of Azeroth Corrected an issue where The Crucible of Flame (Essence) sometimes incorrectly healed Wrathion during his encounter in the Nyalotha, the Waking City raid. Player versus Player
      Twilight Devastation (Corruption Effect) has a 12-second cooldown when engaged in combat with enemy players. Twilight Devastation now deals 50% reduced damage when engaged in combat with enemy players. Echoing Void (Corruption Effect) now deals 50% reduced damage when engaged in combat with enemy players. Professions
      Players should be able to discover Cataclysm Engineering recipes again from crafting recipes on that list. Quests
      Players are now able to perform the Nordrassil ritual during “Lunar Preservation ” without breaking any rituals afterward. WoW Classic
      Quest credit for Elune's Blessing should now be granted more consistently.
      Previous hotfixes:
      January 24th January 23rd January 22nd January 21st January 17th

      We have a quick official reminder of what's changing with this week's reset, from the Mythic and LFR  raid additions to Mythic+, Corrupted item drop and item level changes. You can also check out the Season 4 survival guide and Conquest schedule here.
      Season 4 Weekly Reset (source)
      Here’s a reminder that tomorrow morning, we’re going to see some significant changes:
      Ny’alotha will open for Mythic difficulty and the first wing of Raid Finder difficulty. Mythic Keystone dungeons at +7 or higher, as well as PvP Rank 2 or higher, will now award end-of-run items that scale up to item level 465 (at Mythic +15 and Gladiator, respectively). Weekly chests for Mythic Keystone and PvP activities now contain Season 4 items, which are always Corrupted (if the item is eligible – trinkets cannot be Corrupted). Weekly chest rewards now scale up to item level 475, and do not Warforge/Titanforge.

      With N'Zoth's ending turning out to be a bit anti-climactic for some players, it seems the Old God might indeed have some tricks up his sleeve, and the pretend-N'Zoth "hacking" Blizzard have been incorporating into their tweets might be a bit more real. It seems killing the endboss of Ny'alotha doesn't register as a kill for some groups, meaning they'd get the loot from the boss (including the mount you'd get for Ahead of the Curve), but not the achievement or quest progress and, most importantly, the lockout. Some groups have re-killed him and received loot a second time.

      As you can see in the video below, the boss goes down to 2% and then proceeds to die, and even the logs have it marked as a 2% wipe, but the cutscene played, the boss was on the ground and the loot was given:
      And here's a second example:

      There's a reddit thread discussing it, with some players reluctant to re-kill the boss for fear of suspensions, but still needing the Ahead of the Curve achievement or quest progress, while some have already killed it twice, but also mention fearing bans. They've all submitted tickets, tweeted customer support etc, but still no word some 24 hours later. Hopefully it gets resolved soon and those anxiously waiting for a re-kill without the fear of repercussions can get their clear, or at leas their achievement and quest progress, before the reset. With the Mythic race coming up tomorrow, hopefully this has just affected a small amount of players.
      Huge thanks to Schneider on twitter for bringing this to our attention!

      Well, this one's "a bit" late, but we thought we'd take a look anyway since the Mythic progression race starts tomorrow, and we can still get a good feel for the fight and the goal all those guilds will be running towards. The kill was claimed on Wednesday, January 22nd by US guild Imperative, which means it took them a day to clear all of Heroic and down the final boss. The final pull took just over 10 minutes and we'll definitely be seeing that number go up for Mythic, with the unknown mechanics and possibly phase(es?) being added to it, as well as the big hope for an additional Mythic-only cutscene or dialogue snippet to give N'Zoth a bit of a better sendoff than we've seen so far.

      Imperative is one of the guilds that will be streaming their Mythic progress as well, and are featured on the Method stream event. They're a pretty new guild and haven't had any high-level success in the Mythic race so far, but as they're comprised of former Blood Legion, Wildcard Gaming and Vigil members, there's plenty of experience there and they seem to be pushing a bit more this time around so they're definitely one to keep an eye out in the US/OC scene.
      Here's their raid composition (not quite sure why there are 21 players listed, presumably a bug, or Imperative are getting REALLY creative with the game mechanics):

      And here's the (disappointing, as per general consensus of the community) final N'Zoth death cutscene after his defeat, which has many players hoping and praying for a new one after the Mythic kill:
      The Mythic progression race starts tomorrow and we'll be covering it here as well, with daily summaries of the events with plenty of clips and stats, and it's going to be a damn good one with two separate streaming events and the two top guilds, Method and Limit, being so close after the last race.

      With the Darkshore Warfront now available on Heroic difficulty, we have a new cutscene that involves Tyrande.
      The cutscene is narrated by Tyrande Whisperwind who has become the Night Warrior and the embodiment of Elune's wrath in Battle for Azeroth. She stressed out the importance of the bond between the Kaldorei and we also see Genn Greymane in the crowd.
