So with Demon Hunters coming out soon (yay) I was wondering if there would be any possible difference between Belfs or Nelfs regarding their motives for becoming a demon hunter, the circumstances to why they became a demon hunter, and how they fit in to their respective societies.

You are watching: Night elf or blood elf demon hunter

I know that night elf DEs are mostly shunned but I was sure how blood elf DEs were treated.

Thoughts?

From what i gathered reading various sources and Illidan novel, there's no real moral difference. They all came to Illidan searching for vengeance. They're villages and families demolished by the Burning legion. But if i recall right, the first bloodelf's who came to Illidan were sent by Kael. Only one of them who survived the training sane was Varedis.There might be more sent by Kael to train to be as demon hunter's before he's betrayal, but mostly demon hunters are elves that hate the burning legion enough to go through hell to get an edge on them.

Lord Illidan knows the way

Kael'thas Sunstrider originally sent Illidan Stormrage 5 blood elves to train as Demon hunters. Three of them died in training, Varedis succeeded and now trains more demon hunters at the Black Temple, and the fifth one, Leotheras, went insane and was exiled to Zangarmarsh, where he found his way into the lair of Lady Vashj.

After Kael'Thas went mad the Blood Elves of Silvermoon started to shun their kin that continued following Kael'Thas and by extent Illidan. However, Blood Elves aren't all that iffy about Fel magic so they might be more acceptant than the Night Elves regardless of tradition. They might be pissy about that whole betrayal thing though.

I think the fact that Blood Elves can be warlocks and Night Elves can't really says something about that. :p

If I recall, blood elves don't care as much about Fel, but I don't see any prominent figures who are blood elf warlocks necessarily (who aren't bad guys.)

I'm interested to see what races in the future might be allowed to have Demon Hunters. I would think "anything that's a warlock," but that counters Night Elves.

I doubt they'll add any new races to demon hunter. They'd have to redo the starting zone.

I'm not sure if Blood Elves had a tradition of Demon Hunters before the Illidari, but I dont think the Illidari would be well received considering Kael's betrayal. That said Blood Elf society in recent years is pretty relaxed about fel magic it seems.

Do you think Blood Elves would sort of view Blood Elf Demon Hunters (since they were illidari) a sort of "enemy of my enemy" since Kael turned over to the prime enemy to the demon hunters?

Aren't the Illidari the first, and only (excluding any demon hunters that went rogue after the Illidari) demon hunters?

Are Demon Hunters considered "good" at all? Seems like an odd class for Alliance faction (along with warlock/dk), has Blizzard just blurred the lines indefinitely for the sake lf two-faction classes? Lore noob here, but arent these types just hungry for power at any cost? How is this different than the Burning Legion?

Demon hunters aren't power hungry just for the sake of power. They're obsessed with protecting Azeroth and purging the Burning Legion from existence. The only thing, the only thing that matters is beating the Burning Legion for good and saving Azeroth, in that order.

So, Warlocks/DKs/DHs all harness a powerful malignant force and turn it against itself, but they do it with different philosophies.

Warlocks fight fire with fire. They want power, and they're strong of will enough to keep themselves sane and essentially whole while they enslave demons and force them to turn on their old masters. They're the more elitist, power hungry individuals. But they're still on "our side". They're not really trusted, but they're tolerated because they're too powerful to ignore.

DKs are essentially Bane. They were heroes who fell and were turned by the Lich King. They don't harness dark magic, they are dark magic. They embody the power of death and suffering. The Four Horsemen are very good representations. Thankfully, they have retained at least the bare minimum of sanity and morality, and have decided to mostly work alongside the Alliance and Horde.

Demon hunters are desperate, damaged individuals. They have all had their world ripped out from under them by the Burning Legion, and the top priority for the Illidari is revenge. We can use them like leashed, rabid dogs. We point them at the Legion and let them loose. The only thing we need to worry about with Demon Hunters is getting in their way or becoming collateral damage. If we can prevent that, and keep them from haring off and doing their own thing, they're a powerful weapon against the Legion.
