P.S. Seventy Five percent of my characters are Horde, yet I still happen to enjoy the lore.

It was actually the Kaldorei who were the first elves. The High Elves were the elite caste of the Night Elves - but still the same race. They were nobles who served directly under the queen and were the bulk of Night Elven magic users, hence the first to come into contact with Sargeras and the Legion when the portal was opened.



Btw, didnt the High Elves still refer to themselves as Highborne back then.
To my knowledge they didnt adopt the name of High Elf until the remaining Highborne got exiled from Nordrassil and under the leadership of Dath'Remar Sunstrider, first of the Sunstrider dynasty created Quel'Thalas.




I sooooooooooooooo couldnt refuse, my apologies.

Indeed, ruled by the great and beautiful Queen Azshara, they were the ones who first learned to use magic within the elven kingdoms, which in response lured the demonic Burning Legion to set foot in Kalimdor. If it hadn't been for Rhonin, Krasus and Brox to enter the rift of time the elves never would've stood a chance against the Legion. Also this event proved to result in the corruption of the black dragon aspect Neltharion, the Earth-Warder, later known as Deathwing, his black armour later crafted by the finest goblin smiths.

Amongst the Highbornes were one particular lord Xavius whom was obliterated in a tower on the palace of Zin-Azshari. He was reborn by Archimonde (Or was it Sargeras? I don't remember actually... To my bookshelf!) as the very first satyr, and as you might already know it would surely become more of them.

Hmm, am I boring anyone to death yet?

Definately not boring me. Then again, I am a nerd. :P Although, I do agree with Caledor. We need a section for lore.

Good to see I'm not the only one who's read Knaak's awesome trilogy :)

"High Elf" is the common translation of "Highbourne" in Elven, which is "Queldorei" in the 'old tongue' (Such as Kaldorei, Shan, Shan'do, and so on).

I'm quite a lore-buff as it comes with being an RPer, so any confusion feel free to poke :P
