Night elves got weak in Wow

Anyone agree with this? I feel night elves are so undermined since vanilla wow. In Warcraft 3, they were bad*!@# warrior women. Now we are hardly mentioned and on a losing slope compared to the Horde. Literally, nelves have gotten hardly any spotlight.
No, Night Elves have gotten plenty of spotlight...

As druids.

The sentinel aspect, the priesthood aspect. the part that made Night Elves awesome in WC3? That's the part that's been neglected.

Even Blizzard employees admit Night Elves have lost their fierceness. I don't expect them to get it back anytime soon
As you all might expect, I agree with Ferlion. I would tack on though that I expect things to get worse.

Much worse.

This..
I think the term Worf Effect applies here.

And the Demon Hunters; they haven't gotten much spotlight either.
IMO Night Elves would be cooler if:

1. Highborne got played up more.
2. The Sentinels weren't so bland.
3. The aesthetic of the Druids of the Claw came back... I miss those brawny Druids.
4. Less Malfurion, more Tyrande. (And maybe Broll actually, make him a Druid who is NOT neutral.)
Yeah, Broll is a BAMF.

They've gotten more in the past few expacs. It's one of the few aspects of Night Elf culture I feel they've actually improved upon.
I miss Broll. I was hoping he'd replace Fandral in Darnassus, but hope is just something you're not allowed to have as Alliance.

True that man.

*passes a beer*
BLIZZARD GIVE TYRANDE SPOTLIGHT
I totally agree with the druid thing though. But I didn't really include that because it's not JUST nelves in the whole druid scheme. Specifically darnassian alliance night elves is what i'm saying are very undermined
There's a reason I rarely play my Night Elf Druid (who was my main up until Wrath) anymore.

I'll probably play him more if we ever get a chance to tell Malfurion where to stick it and kick the Horde off of Hyjal.
I thought the Night Elf Sentinels are the main scouting party on Pandaria?
The Sentinels get a decent amount of facetime in Krasarang and the Finale for the Southern Pandaria questlines.

I dont think the issue is their face time but rather the strength and furosity of the sentinels. I found it interesting that Kor, the orc traveling with the Dawnstriders, mentions that they used to be something to be feared but not anymore. Kind of hurts when even ingame characters are talking them down now.
No, I'm still pretty badass.
I await a Rohan moment where Khadgar offers Tyrande her old bow and goes all "Perhaps the priestess will remember her strength when she grasps her old bow..."

Damn...

Now I definitely know that Blizzard is getting hardcore with deconstructing Night Elves into a mess of a race. Guess you have my understanding now.
