Heh, Angus brought up the points I was going to bring up between the time I read the article and was reading the comments... It was the Alliance (or more specifically, a human leader) who betrayed the High Elves and drove a very deep wedge in between them. And then the Scourge invaded with the human prince Arthas at their lead, laying waste to their homeland. Sure, Arthas was evil incarnate by that point and an enemy to every thing that lived, but I rather doubt that was exactly common knowledge by then. And I'm sure it sealed the deal as far as the break with the Alliance went.Also, it's important to remember that the naga aren't some just random evil race the High Elves turned to for aid, but distant relations. Naga are mutated elves, the same as High/blood elves are (and dryads, satyr and who knows how many other races). Specifically, they are the remains of the highborne 'night' elves that once followed Queen Azshara and followed her into the depths of the ocean when the original Well of Eternity was destroyed. So they are actually fairly similar in story to the Blood Elves. Driven out of their home because of their fascination and study of arcane magic.So it's not very much a surprise that Blood Elves are very suspicious, insular and a bit arrogant. Every ally, even members of their own faith, has at some point betrayed and either tried to kill them or drive them away. Even their own Prince now has gone mad and tried to destroy them in the name of 'saving' them. Yet the Blood Elf nation still stands.
