You also forgot to mention how the humans treated the blood elves after the destruction of Silvermoon but before meeting the nagas.I seem to remember Kael having direct contact with Garithos before meeting Vashj and hewas treating the elven refugees as cannon fodder basically. Ties were already being broken before the blood elves even got near demonic magic.

Yeah, the Wiki articles all mostly paint the blood elves like some neo-nazi racists, who hate everybody and are all crazy. Most of these quotes come from the WC RPG books and those mostly refer to Kael's blood elves. Is there someone that's going to edit some of that? The blood elf articles make the blood elves all look like angry, shallow, emo teens.

Yeah I left that out because it seemed more like one man's prejudice against the blood elves wouldn't necessarily be characteristic of human and blood elf relations as a whole. It's definitely a huge issue that Kael'thas and his soldiers came up against, but for the population of blood elves as a whole I felt like the fel-energy issue was the more important one.Besides, I don't want to represent the blood elves as all bad nazi type people. They definitely have their flaws, but that's largely what makes them interesting. Their redemption (which we'll talk about next week) is one of the most compelling stories in Warcraft so far.

I believe it's important enough to be included. While Garithos' view may not be the official view of the Alliance. Garithos is a high ranking official and he was the one in DIRECT contact with the Blood Elf leader.Honestly the Alliance is at the very least to blame for their negligence to the situation that Garithos was creating, they should have sent a more diplomatic official for direct relations with Kael. Had there been a less prejudice representative of the Alliance there instead of Garithos we might be seeing a completely different Blood Elf standing.

Hell, if there'd been a more diplomatic figure than Garithos there things might have turned out drastically different with the Scourge as well. If the response to their aid had been "Thank you, I shall tell all our people that you are not like the Scourge but a decent people capable of reason."... who knows?
