Most of the elves didn't take their commitment to the Arathor line seriously, the government of Quel'thelas sent a token force of observers to discharge their responsibility. Alleria took her rangers to assist the Alliance against the orders of her superiors. The rest of the elven forces didn't aid the Alliance until after Orgrim torched the forests of Quel'thelas and corrupted their rune stones with demonic magics, and Turalyon led half the Alliance army to save Quel'thelas. After the war, the elves pulled out of the alliance immediately, which prompted the Gilneans to pursue their isolationist doctrine. The elves didn't come back to help the alliance during the third war until well after the Scourge had gutted Lordaeron and moved on to smash Silvermoon.That's pretty much the story of the Blood Elves, outside of the living Windrunners, the elves were, and always have been, jerks who can't be trusted to help with any problem until it comes to their land and burns down their forests. Vareesa's followers in the Silver Covenant were the only elves remaining with whom their oath to Arathor would have carried any weight.as for the Tauren/Alliance relations, Blizzard has no idea what they're doing with them. In one zone the Alliance burns down Turajo, in another zone the Alliance allies with the Grimtotems, in The Shattering the Alliance helped push the Grimtotems out of TB and gave shelter to Baine, in thousand needles the Alliance fights against the grimtotems and captures the occupied Freewind Post, only to give it back to the Horde for some reason. It's like watching a dating show, only both people are bipolar schizophrenics.
