I think its worth to note high elven farstriders still exist, especially in EPL and Hinterlands --Gurluas 16:43, 23 September 2007 (UTC)

What?Edit

I don't get it. If these new Blood Elven "Farstriders" want to eradicate evil, why would they become it? Basically for all you Blood Elf lovers, what I'm trying to say is, if they love nature why would they become Blood Elves ho don't really like nature?  IconSmall Snowman Mr.X8 Talk Contribs

GG, who said blood elves don't like nature? As far as we know blood elves still love nature. Also blood elves aren't evil, misunderstood yes, a bit dark compared to other Horde members, but not necessarily evil.Baggins 03:03, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Well they don't like demons and that's what the Blood Elves feed on.  IconSmall Bear Mr.X8 Talk Contribs

Most blood elves hate demons, but see them as a source of energy to block the pangs of their addiction. Using the energy doesn't mean they "like demons".Baggins 03:09, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Well I guess you're right. You wouldn't know how I can fix my 3rd sig, the blue & orange would you? Or when I do the ({{User:Mr.X8/Sig}} 03:10, 11 November 2007 (UTC)) It doesn't show my sig. {{User:Mr.X8/Sig}} 03:10, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Its a misconception that all blood elves feed their addiction with demonic energy. Most of the player blood elves only resort to consuming demonic energies in desperate situations. The Outland blood elves and the Azashra blood elves are enemies of the player blood elves for feeding exclusively on demonic energy and not controlling their addictions. Arcane and for some the light can appease their addictions. Zarnks 00:00, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

How do you even know this??  IconSmall HighElf Male Mr.X8 Talk Contribs 02:46, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

Another point to consider: look at the list of NPCs in the article. Only one Farstrider, Halduron Brightwing, is found in Silvermoon City. The rest stay well away from High Magister Rommath. The Lord Regent was himself Ranger-General before assuming the regency, and while he must perforce heed Prince Kael'thas' representative, he balances this with input from the Ranger General.
A lieutenant commands at Farstrider Retreat, nearer the capital. A captain commands at Farstrider Enclave in the Ghostlands. Farstrider power is decentralized, and kept as far as possible from the High Magister's eyes. I think that this indicates a distrust of the new regime and a desire to maintain some independence without resorting to open rebellion. The Farstriders have their own agenda - defending Quel'thalas, not leading the pilgramage to Outland.Jubaal 09:00 2 December, 2007 (UTC)

That... Makes perfect sense.  Inv weapon rifle 23 Mr.X8 Talk Contribs

Actually plot wise when the game starts out blood elves in Outland and Silvermoon are still connected with each other through High Magister Rommath, plot wise they are all allies, waiting for Kael'Thas return (read the manual). Also the demon absorbtion thing started long before they met Illidan, according to lore. Kael was doing it, and teaching other blood elves how to do it to demons left behind in Quel'Thalas by the Scourge since just after the Third War. It was one of the only ways they knew to fight the withdrawal symptoms;
They became very bitter when the Alliance went to Kalimdor to fight the undead and never returned to help them defeat Arthas and his army. They hate the Alliance for deserting them. These high elves have renamed themselves “blood elves” in memory of their fallen companions. As they struggled to stay alive amid the Scourge, the effect of being away from their Sunwell began to take its toll on the elves, and many became brooding and dark. To give his people hope, Prince Kael’thas, a high elf noble, embraced their Highborne ancestry. They decided that because their already formidable arcane magic talents failed them in defending their homeland, they needed to find a course that would grant them even more power. Although they hate the demons that destroyed their homeland and caused the Alliance to abandon them, they see the demons as resources of raw power and magical knowledge and are obsessive about hunting them down. Their common method of going about things is to hunt down the demon, get whatever knowledge from it that they can — using whatever means necessary — and then dispose of it. It quickly became clear that the blood elves’ numbers would only diminish; they had no homeland, and they were constantly fighting powerful enemies. Hope arrived in the form of Illidan Stormrage...They joined with the naga in Illidan’s army and aided him in their former city of Dalaran and later in Northrend...A&HC 67, 68

Misleading factionboxEdit

I thought I'd point out that the factionbox as it is currently been put together is misleading as it combines all three seperate Farstrider factions into one group, thus implying the leader of the blood elven Farstriders leads all Farstriders, and that all the races are part of the same faction.Baggins 19:43, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Yeah. Split then?--SWM2448 23:52, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
