With the release of Burning Crusade Classic, two new races join the classic world: Blood Elves (Horde) and Draenei (Alliance). In this WoW Classic TBC guide, we tell you the two races couldn't be more different from one another. These are the accounts of their lives!
Azeroth's blood elves, as opposed to the draenei who inhabit the continent, are descended from the high elves who lived in the kingdom of Quel'Thalas, which lies within the lush forests of Lordaeron. There was also the sacred sun well, which served as the focal point of high elf society, and whose powerful energies helped to strengthen the high elves.
A decade after the Scourge's devastating attack on the high elves under Arthas during the Third War, the high elves were standing in front of the ruins of their former high culture: the sunwell, which had been defiled by Arthas when the necromancer Kel'Thuzad was resuscitated, and their king had perished.
The blood elves: a new chapter in their history
Prince Kael'thas Sunstrider made the decision to demolish the fountain in order to prevent the necromantic energies from wreaking havoc on his remaining subjects, who were able to purchase WoW TBC Classic gold for sale. Following the fall of Silvermoon, the high elves renamed themselves blood elves in honor of those who had perished in the conflict.
They enlisted in the Alliance's fight against the Scourge, but were not treated equally by the racist Grand Marshal Othmar Garithos during the conflict. In response to the increasing suffering of the remaining blood elves as a result of the lack of a well, Kael'thas sought assistance from Lady Vashj, which resulted in a bitter conflict with Garithos.
Lady Vashj and her naga were followed through the Dark Portal to Outland by Kael'thas and his fighters, who later joined Illidan Stormrage after he was freed from captivity. In Outland, the blood elves discovered a way to quench their mana addiction by channeling the energies of demons, which still causes their eyes to glow green when they come into contact with fel energy today.
Under the leadership of Lor'themar Theron, Silvermoon was rebuilt after Grand Magister Rommath returned to Quel'Thalas and taught the remaining blood elves these new techniques.
The light that was stolen
When Prince Kael'thas conquered the Stronghold of Storms, a naaru named M'uru was captured by the blood elves and used as a weapon against the blood elves. The Naaru Guardian was subjected to a thorough examination by the mages working under the Astalor Blood Oath. They were successful in manipulating M'uru's energies in such a way that the blood elves were able to work light once more, and they went on to found the Order of Blood Knights.
On Azeroth, with the assistance of Sylvanas, the blood elves reluctantly joined the Horde in order to aid them in their fight against the remaining Scourge forces. During the attack on Shattrath, Illidan's forces were joined by the Outland blood elves, with a large group of blood elves breaking away from the army.
Voren'thal allied himself and his warriors with the Naaru A'dal, who had appeared to him in a vision as the only hope for his people and whom he believed to be their only savior. The warriors under the command of Voren’thal served as seers and defended the city of Shattrath from that point on. Kael'thas, who had been corrupted by the demon lord Kil'jaeden for a long time, kidnapped the captured M'uru during an attack on Silvermoon and retired to the Terrace of the Magisters on Quel'Danas Island in order to summon Kil'jaeden to his aid.
