1 Dwarf Warrior
"Blood mages" in WC3 practiced magic that had nothing to do with blood. They casted Flamestrike, Banish, Siphon Mana, and Summon Phoenix. They were magi with a darker feel than the those of Dalaran - consistent with the blood elves' theme of turning to darker paths and darker magic due to their withdrawal from the Sunwell's magic (hence the warlock-y spells like Banish and Siphon Mana, as well as the more volatile fire mage spells like Flamestrike and Summon Phoenix). The "blood" in "blood mage" was more in the sense of "blood" in "blood elf": it did not have anything to do with manipulating blood; it was just a title-name-thing like "Sin'dorei".
This should be programmed to be an automatic response to all blood mage/ blood magic threads.
The blood, including in the Blood Elf name, seemed to relate to life essence. It really wasn't a rule that only Blood Elves could be Blood Mages. Just that Blood Elves, in their current situation, would be certainly prone to be Blood Mages by siphoning all kinds of life and mana essences.
Blood magic probably just mean "magic that uses someone's life essence". The Gnome in Blasted Lands used Blood as a reagent, but that doesn't mean it is restrict to using or manipulating raw blood.
