Great stuff, well done.

And a reminder Blizz is apparently terrified of answer questions about the High Elves like how many are left, where are they, and what’s happening to them given that it’s canon only KT’s followers took the title of Sin’dorei.

Oh and the whole “BE Civil War Thing” since indeed the Blood Elves in the Horde are the ones who weren’t loyal to Kael’thas and who ended up destroying him and untold thousands of their kin.

Wait, what?

So why are they called Blood Elves? They’re specifically disloyal to the last Sunstrider and his pact with the Legion. Shouldn’t they have called themselves something else? Goddamnit Blizz.

You worked backwards on this didn’t you? You started with “dude Blood Elves $%^& yeah,” were sure you didn’t want boring ol’ (and copyright contestable) High Elves skanking up the place but wanted to keep some of the aesthetics, and eventually worked back to “cranky racist magic junkies” as your core subversion. Except you invested in Blood Elves too early instead of having KT declare himself something like “True king of the Quel’Dorei” before being destroyed and then having the triumphant rebels declare themselves Blood elves. So now we have this small but irritating problem of the Sin’dorei being both the people who survived two Legion attempts at wiping them out while also identifying as the traitors they slew.

And of course the remaining High Elves, which you cannot decide between just off-handedly exterminating and making something of, sitting on the sidelines apparently being ghettoized in human cities. Or ..something.

Oh except Void Elves except only some of them are Void Elves. Jesus christ Blizz this can’t be that hard to get right. Oh right this is BfA content. No wonder it’s ****.

…ugh.

But anyway. Yeah, props IKE. Hard work done well. Blizz would do well to show you some love.

Kael’thas is such a nice character. It still bothers me how much of a waste it was killing him off… if only he had not fallen to corruption and actually led the Blood Elves.

Kael’thas is coming back in Shadowlands if I’m not mistaken.

There is some unnecessary camera movement there. The updated models are great but some of the effects (Al’ar fire) look out of place for World of Warcraft. The glass and statue shattering somehow looks worse in this than in the original. In my opinion he should just remake the cinematics frame by frame but with updated models and graphics.

I remember Patch 2.4 very fondly. It was definitely one of the better times to be playing WoW. That music takes me back to Quel’Danas dailies, Magister’s Terrace runs, and Sunwell progression which I thoroughly enjoyed up until around Muru and KJ which then led to me taking a break until WotLK came out. Good times.
