World of Warcraft’s community is surely an active one, both in-game and outside of the MMORPG. Today, these amazing players are holding a Night Elf appreciation.
Night Elves are one of the more popular race choices in Blizzard’s 12-year-old MMORPG veteran. They are also one of the oldest races according to the game’s lore. US player Averyx from Quel’Thalas server, decided that the race is in need of an appreciation thread on WoW’s official forums. The thread turned out to be rather popular and received a myriad of responses.
“Because they are the superior elves. With amazing characters, lore, style and allies. They are beautiful, powerful, intelligent and with an amazing culture.” -Averyx
Night Elves are indeed a magnificent race with an ancient culture and a rather rough history. They have become a firm part of the Alliance and their knowledge of magic has helped the Humans numerous times. As Blizzard decided to improve character graphics in the last few years, the Elves have become beautiful creatures.
Other players, besides Averyx, have decided to similarly express their appreciation of the race. Even those, playing as other races in World of Warcraft expressed a positive view of the Night Elves. “I appreciate Night elves for helping us Gilneans, great allies, great hosts too. Their women are perfect and their men exude respect,” said Đemian, a Worgen Druid.
This particular thread has turned into more of a Lore discussion slash race superiority debate that hundreds of players have joined in on. If you are looking for a bit of RP humor without any swearing or whatnot, be sure to check out Averyx’s awesome initiation here.
“You elves think you’re the Old Gods’ gift to the world. Well guess what? None of you are as great as you think you are.” -Yirukemiski
The Night Elves are the third most popular choice for World of Warcraft players in 2016, according to a study by Statista, and are more popular on US servers than in the EU region, but not by much. Humans still hold a firm first position on the list, followed by Blood Elves who are probably considered to be the most handsome/pretty race in the game.
