World of Elfcraft here we come! :P.


Well... It is (Azeroth) world of Trolls and Elves are a lower form of Troll~
There are also animals like Tauren but the rest? Alien invaders and cursed titan constructs!

Look at Draenei, Worgen and Pandaren.


Hi.

They’re not quite popular

Elves.


The problem is more about the lore than gameplay. Sure thing, people will be drawn to new beautiful playable races.

I, for one, am quite invested in the lore and I believe that to add the High Elves would pretty much be to a much extent a strike against the Blood Elves. Lore-wise speaking.

The warcraft universe has so many different species that focusing even more on Elves would be pretty... inconsistent.

Want to focus on one race? Focus on trolls! They were the first, they are the most divided, they should be the most populous on Azeroth.

Pulling even more Elves out of the currently, I thought - small amount of them, would be going against any consistency lore-wise speaking.

So, yeah, Furbolgs are a better choice. But obviously, next to nobody cares about the story and GAMEPLAY is life, so another Elf race it is I dread.
I'm sure the trash gnomes will be super popular.
Additional ideas for new AR

Frostborn
Earthens
Jinyu
Half Elves(with more ugly human traits)
Furbolgs
Vulpera
Gilgoblins
Naga Rebels
Junker or Mecha Gnomes

These are some solid points.

I'd add to that:

Arrakoa (maybe both kinds?)
Sethrakk
Taunka and Yaungol
Other trolls (Sand, Frost, Dark, Forest) - especially Forest (Revantusk)
Some smaller offshot of Ogres
Tuskarr
Vrykul

Mogu ;)
Bonus idea: Aldrachi!
A new race has to add variety if there is more elves that are reasonably far apart lore wise from the others, sure why not.

If they are just there to be a reskin then F that. Give us more customization within the current races please but do not make an extra race for "elf with this thing" and take away a spot that so many other cool races could take that actually add something new to the game.
4 elf races are plenty. We have 1(soon 2) humans.

Variety is the spice of life!
If you want to be a blood elf roll Horde. Really sick of seeing these threads. We've already had void elves and nightborne so that either side can have a belf/nelf equivalent.

Some races are always going to be more popular than others. A lot of that is due to racials and how much better transmog suits them.

Oh well, Blizzard is master in twisting and turning it's own lore, look at that crap with worgen dk, bloodelf warrior or tauren paladin.


Oh yes, sometimes they are, but your examples can be justified maybe expect for worgen dk.

Are you living under a rock? Sanlayn are already working for the horde, Sylvanus is collecting her pokemons and whole alliance war campaign is only about hunting these idiots ...


Name every race we cooperated with. Yeah, there is a lot of them, right.
Now every race that joined either faction after the cooperation. What? Only few of them? I see.
And now the races from previous ones that are few in numbers... One you say? Void Elves without proper lore? It looks bad for San'layn then. And that's only half of the problem.


Oh yes, sometimes they are, but your examples can be justified maybe expect for worgen dk.



Doesn't linger the fact that those combinations are just stupid and can easily be enhanced with troll druid or nightelf mage. the point is, blizz can bend their lore like they want just for selling points sake.

I believe that Stormsong Quillboar make a lot of sense! Enemies of Kul Tirans and never had any conflict with the Horde.

We also have pygmies still.

How about Mantid?

Mogu and Vrykul can easily countered with them being too big, even bigger than Tauren, to become playable. And normal Armour would look like crap on Sethrak.
we don't need more pointy ear'd freaks
As far as I'm concerned, if Elves, Humans, Orcs and Draenei can reproduce with each other then they're basically the same race.

That's basically everything except Humans, Taurens, Gnomes and Dwarves.
Grummles! They have been riding around on my yak for years.
Because elves are one of the most boring races in like ... every game they are in?

4 Elf-races are more than enough.... Voidelves were a mistake btw.
