How to get the proper mindset for a blood elf?Consider the following:1: You were likely not involved in the previous wars. You did, however, probably live during those times and knew people that gave their lives for the Alliance.2: You watched as the Scourge sacked your city and killed people you cared for.3: You were overtaken by a horrible, powerful, and devastating withdrawal. 4: Your Prince returned, and like a beacon of hope promised to help. He left and you waited.5: You found out your Prince had been betrayed by the very humans that your families had helped for so many years. Elders talked in disgust about the fact that your people gave them magic, comfort, and aid when they needed it for generations and when your people needed their help the most...?6: You feel angry and bitter. Not only did your people lose almost everything, have the survivors begin to degenerate into... things, and then get betrayed, but now every old enemy that had been held in check was coming in to finish the job.Some of you discovered a way to gain power in a new source and this stopped the hunger. Those few became Blood Knights and their anger and bitterness towards the Alliance fueled some pretty horrible actions. If you are a Blood Knight you will probably start off thinking you are a hero, quickly become an anti-hero as the true meaning of what you do becomes clear, and eventually return to what the term "Paladin" means. The loss of M'uru and then seeing that it was destiny and the Naaru will give you willingly what you thought you had to take is likely to change you.Other Blood Elves will have a righteous tinge to their anger. They have survived pretty much every attack and the entire world can go to the nether. They'll survive and get their vengeance on all that deserve it.The biggest moment for some neat changing of one's character is the quest line in Netherstorm with the forges. The realization that the Prince has become something horrible and must be stopped should cause quite a problem for many Blood Elves. This is the one that taught them to manage their addiction and found alternatives. For him to betray his own people? As you mention it is quite a blow.Seeing him in Magister's Terrace should be quite the shock.The Blood Elves have a lot of play room for RP. Emo, angry, righteous, sad, driven, arrogant, and vicious are all very well in character. Any can be easily identified and with a back story revolving around loss and betrayal it should be fairly easy to come up with some traits that people can understand once they get the full story.
