The Blood Elves will definitely be Horde outcasts. They'll have each other (which will probably be larger than the rest of the Horde), but nothing else. Forsaken was a HUGE stretch as it was, they go completely against everything the Horde stands for. Blood Elves is pushing it a tad. I rather dislike how Blizzard is trying to villainize the Horde, Blood Elves are a truly evil race. The original Horde (Trolls, Tauren, Orcs) was composed of multi-community races (tribes,clans) based on spiritualism and Shamanism with a deep hatred for anything that defied the elements. Blood Elves and Forsaken BOTH are the anti-nature. Forsaken are anti-nature simply by existing, and Blood Elves feed off of Demonic Magic in order to maintain their sanity (which is Kael's case is withering). The Forsaken MAY welcome them, but it's hard to say. They definitely share more in common, culturally, than the rest of the Horde and culture/aesthetic is the main reason while people roll the tribal Horde races. As for a third faction, it may be possible for Blood Elves to double-cross and become Illidan's cronies, or double agents. Hell, with Akama (Draenei Broken Seer), Draenei may even get the option to become Broken and join Illidan. Knowing Blizzard, it can be hard to say. Such a huge change would be very uncconventional but then again, all you have to do is look at the Forsaken and Draenei and know they're willing to make changes every now and then. -Vogen
