Very well done.
First page, yo.
I'd just like to know what server absolutely has active RP and who's occupants aren't elitist arses. I've forum and chat rped since I became a teenager and got the internet..so there's no question as to if I can, but I've never done it in a world that's already fully realized. I've been reading lore and trying to cram as much as I can, because RP would absolutely make the experience of this game fantastic for me. If there's anyone who could just kind of point me in a good direction..a server and perhaps a recommended guild.
WrA and just about any of 'em.
First page again.

Edit: Also, couple of links added.
Can't-sleep-so-I'm-trolling-the-forums-late-night-first-page-bump.
Amazing list. Bump.
Bump.

Keep 'liking' this, we want to get it stickied, if that's the way you do it...
Looks good, but I have only one thing to point out:

Why Night Elves look different from Highborne, Blood Elves, and High Elves.-- Usage of Arcane magic drove the Highborne Blood Elves and High Elves from the rest of Night Elven culture. Arcane magic molded their bodies differently, and also altered their culture and outlooks.


"Highborne" (as in, from Shen'dralar and the playable Night Elf Mage) still look like Night Elves. Also, it wasn't arcane magic which molded their bodies differently (otherwise the Night Elf Magi wouldn't look like Night Elves), it was the sunwell.

The Sunwell just furthered that. If you go and find pictures of Queen Azshara before she became a naga, she looks different enough from other Night Elves that you can point it out quite easily. Her ears go up at a more steep angle, her eyes are very very catlike, and she is very pale as well as being very bloodelven in body shape.

The fact that Highborne still look like Night Elves in game is pretty much just mechanics.
Just hit like and after enough likes, it will get reviewed for a sticky.
I have to say that nothing is more close minded and juvenile than a guide on how go live out a fantasy.

RP how you want, when you want. Do it well. People who don't like it because it didn't conform to what is found in a guide can go along like a lemming.
I have a Sin'dorei DK that ICly was originally killed during the Fall of Silvermoon

....then I realized that she wouldn't be Sin'dorei, as there were no "Sin'dorei" until *after* Silvermoon fell and the Sunwell was destroyed.

So she is a Quel'dorei by nature, but if you were to ask her, she'd call herself Sin'dorei by association. She's simply angry that the remaining "High Elves" abandoned their home that she gave her life trying to defend.

And where are these pictures of Queen Azshara? I've never seen any official art of her with a blood elven appearance.

Last I knew, the arcane did cause physical change, but only internally -- it did not warp form.

The access of arcane magic to the ruling caste began to split the kaldorei nation across racial lines;[1] and despite their outwardly similar physical appearance, those "Highborne" were transformed by the magic flowing through their veins.[6]


From WoWPedia on the "Highborne" page. This seems to suggest that they did, indeed, look just the same.
"Similar" is not the same as "The same".'

Edit: I found the picture I was referring to.

Notice how light her skin color is even when in darkness as she is. Notice her eyes. Notice the angle of her ears. It's not much, but it does go up more steeply. I never said that the differences were huge. Just easily notable.
Its showing up in the popular topics!
Added a new link about orcs.

That's actually rather clever. I like it.

That's also fan art, and isn't official. Also, her ears don't look upright at all, even if it were official. They're still quite night elven. Different viewing angles will have that effect.
