Blood Elves have been one of the most popular playable races in World of Warcraft since The Burning Crusade. With WoW: Shadowlands, the Elves from Quel'thalas get a large selection of new design options in character customization. We present the first graphic updates for blood elves from the Shadowlands Alpha.
The long and tragic history of the blood elves is closely related to that Strategy game classic Warcraft 3 connected. No other people has influenced Azeroth's fate as much as the Elves of Quel'thalas. They fought alongside the human kingdoms against the orcs and the scourge in the Second and Third Wars. But the magical Elf kingdom was not up to the onslaught of the undead. Prince Arthas destroyed the sun well and plunged the high elves into disaster. Disappointed by the people and the Alliance, the survivors joined the Horde as blood elves a few years after the great catastrophe.
In The Burning Crusade, the blood elves made their comeback as a playable people. The blood elves have undergone many changes since these turbulent times. With patch 6.1 (Warlords of Draenor) they got Blood elves, for example, new character models. A few years later, players were allowed to use their blood elf hero when creating characters golden instead of green eyes miss. The new selection for the eye color was long overdue, after all the addiction of the blood elves for devil crystals, to which they owe the toxic green eye color, has long been history.
In WoW: Shadowlands expand the developers of World of Warcraft (buy now for € 26.99) the color palette for more options. It even goes back to the roots! Because in the future we can choose from the new eye colors for blood elves not only green and gold but also the classic blue tones of the high elves. With this adjustment, Blizzard sticks into the wasp nest, after all, the Allianz players have wanted the high elves as playable people for years. But instead of high elves, the alliance got the empty elves, whose appearance is based more on the violet color palette of the void. The blue eyes of the high elves will probably be reserved for the horde in the future, the alliance goes empty-handed. Here's a sneak peek of new eye colors for the blood elves in WoW: Shadowlands:
In addition to the new eye colors, the blood elves are also given new skin and hair colors. The highlight of the fresh design options, however, is the filigree body jewelry for female blood elves. You can see fine neck and waist chains made of pearls, gold and silver. This jewelry gives skimpy outfits a special look. In the gallery below you can find all pictures with the new character adjustments for blood elves.
