Blood Elves and Sylvanas

General Discussion
I find it strange that we don't get more dialogue from Blood Elves reaching out to Sylvanas. With her being such a close and respected High Elf in life, you would think those strong bonds would have some more characters reaching out. They do explore this with her sisters which is nice but hardly ever with those on the Horde side besides comedic quips.

With her escalating involvement can we have some scenes with Blood Elves reaching out sincerely? Surely being on the Horde and fighting alongside Forsaken some Elves must still hold respect and love towards her and I think some discussions between these people would be an interesting perspective. If she does have free will she needs reminders from these people that she is still capable of being that valiant ranger general she was in life.

Blood Elf intervention please.
Blood elves love and trust her the same if not more than the forsaken lol. Good luck with that
Why would the blood elves intervene? The night elves are our mortal enemies. If anything we'd be pretty satisfied with Sylvanas choice to burn the tree.
You can read Lor'themar's short on this very website. It isn't even long.

There is no love lost between the Blood Elves and Sylvanas, it's clear to the Blood Elven leadership she stopped seeing the Belfs as her own post-undeath and now see the Forsaken as her one and only kindred.

That's crap. Liadrin and Lor'themar would never sit back and be okay with civilians being burned alive.

huh? Yeah they would. This wasn't garrosh suddenly nuking theramore in every reality, this was a war caused by alliance aggression.

Wasn't she blackmailing Lor'thamer for the longest time?
Alliance Aggression? lolwut?

Alliance Aggression? lolwut?
the unsanctioned attack against horde forces in stormheim led by Genn and admiral Rogers.

If that attack wasn't enough, it was made worse with Genn being allowed to be considerably close to anduin, who supposedly wants "peace".

Dead wrong, pun intended. Sylvanas looks as the undead as her kin. The living, as noted in the cinematic, are now her enemy.

Not an order from the Alliance leaders, was not exactly condoned/ordered. And Genn did find out what Sylvanas was doing there which WAS a !@#$ty thing she was doing... soo.... kinda a wash.

But hardly an "alliance aggression." Definitely wrong of Genn/Rogers, but not the Alliance actively choosing something (I do think Genn/Rogers should have faced some form of reprimand/punishment for it though).

Yes, it makes total sense that a people traumatized by an undead leader invading sacred and ancient territory and then burning down their capital for the lulz would be okay with this.

Hypocrisy! *jazz hands*

Sylvanas still has a soft spot in her heart for Quel’thalas.

Belves have never been good, you are no one moral superior. U drained and tortured a naaru just to use its light power

Says who? The only reason the blood elves accepted the forsaken into Quel’thalas was because they didn’t have another alternative, the scourge was still rampant and the Amani were preparing to attack them. Sylvanas sent them help but the blood elves refused aid many times. And Sylvanas had to black mail Lorthemar in many occasions because he refused to help the forsaken or the Horde. Lorthemar is always suspicious of Sylvanas and they argued many times when they were at Horde’s meetings.
Blood elves hate night elves. Remember, the night elves exiled the ancestors of the blood elves. I doubt many tears were shed in Silvermoon over Teldrassil.
Blood elves are pretty vicious. In most quests they're just as blood thirsty or indifferent to the suffering of Alliance races as the forsaken. People like to compare Garrosh and Sylvanas but there's one distinctive difference.

Garrosh harmed the Horde by exiling, attacking, and basically putting the other Horde races he didn't like into the gutter. Sylvanas has only harmed Alliance races which as you might imagine, the average rank and file are okay with.

I do agree, but to go as far suggesting she's as kindred with them as the forsaken is inaccurate.

Genn is literally an Alliance leader lol. It wasn't even a tactically wise choice. People get Sylvanas crap for her tactics, but who in their right mind attacks an entire fleet of ships with air superiority, in nothing but a lone airship?

That aside, the bottom line is that yes, it WAS Alliance aggression. It was an act of war in a time when the Alliance and Horde needed to at the very least not take up arms against each other. Genn screwed up, and the blood of all the dead Night Elves of Teldrassil are on his hands.
