I love how the blood elves are left out of everything... I mean seriously there is no indication whatsoever that they are even 'in' the Horde. In Wolfheart they were only mentioned ONCE as being apart of the army when Varian was surverying the carnage... and even then I am sure it was a typo because the rest of the novel never mentions them. Maybe it's because I love my belf pally but there is absolutely no love for us from Blizzard. Seriously, there has been some great lore developments in the Horde, I want to know where they stand in all of this. If the leaders decide to take out Garrosh will the blood elves help them? Not get involved? Leave?

It's not a large plot-point, but blood elves do get the Reliquary as a Cataclysm development. Quite a few of the new Horde questgivers in the pre-level-60 Azeroth are blood elves, mostly representatives of the Reliquary but also ones with personal purposes (see Blasted Lands). That’s more than what their counterpart race, the draenei, got in Cata.Also, much of the post-80 quests are about druids and shaman, so of course no blood elf NPCs there.

I understand that much of this expansion has centered around druids and shaman, but not one hint as to where the blood elves stand in everything that is going on in the Horde... that's a bit ridiculous in my mind. At least Velen has been out and about in Wolfheart... although I have to also agree that they haven't been shown much love either in all of this. I know that not everything can be super balanced but it would be nice if they at least put out the last two leader short stories, I am sure it would explain what is going on with the Draenei and where are they leaving to (as mentioned in Wolfheart)? Draenor? I can't think of anything that explains this in game (but if someone else can, I would love to go do those quests!). It will also probably shed light on how the Blood Elves are doing with what is going on in the Horde.

What about the entire storyline of the Burning Crusade? The Blood Elves were present all the way through in nearly every zone and frankly it was awesome. Illidan, who the hell is that and I could care less? lolI believe however that Blizz does things sort of one at a time, since there is so much within this universe. The Horde gets the spotlight in Cata, Alliance gets more in Mists and so on. So They feel they can hold off on the BE and Draenei for whenever they feel like updating Outland.Personally I can understand this attitude but do not accept it, not now. Maybe seven years ago, but I honestly hope star wars will knock some reality into them to not give us tiny tidbits every six or months and think they are generous. I think this has come over them having a monopoly over the MMO and I seriously hope they will speed up their game and not dismiss players; like how they rather rudely did to the guy who asked about updating Moonkin form at blizzcon, I wanted to punch that dev in his smug face!lso so feel you for Wolfheart, Knaack just inseerted them so willy nilly, he should have made those forces almost all orc, tauren, troll and goblin. It would have been awesome to see a cohort of Blood Knights and their thoughts on blazing a path through Ashenvale. After the Jaina book I am so hoping for a novel on the sin dorei, not to mention more use of them in game. Despite what Garrosh might think the kind of power the full forces of Silvermoon can bring to the table should never be underestimaded.I am also a pure Alliance fan boy ;p
