    Default Moon Elf Racial Variant

    A new elven racial variant was announced awhile ago, and then we never heard anything about this new (sub) race again. Is an elven racial variant still planned at some point? If so, including Moon Elves as a racial variant with the Feywild expansion would be a good time to introduce them. Eladrin, which already exist in DDO, and Moon Elves seem somewhat interchangeable however.

    How many elven racial variants do we need?
    Could do with some more gnome varieties.....

    EDIT: uh and yeah... won't someone think of the halflings? Where is the iconic halfling?

    Default I would support, IF

    I do not wish to sound negative but we dont get any other races we allready see at the game as playable races.

    Meanwhile Elf variations are dominating the playable choices for a long time. (may call them human subrace aswell)

    I would support Moon elves only if we hear a release which would include about a dozen other humanoid races we allready see as npcs at the game.



    Rakshasa, Kobold, Orc, Bugbear, Goblinoids, Troll, Minotaur, Troglodyte, Gnoll, Lizardfolk, Yugoloth, Illythid, Medusa and many more. We could have other beastfolk aswell. I do not speak of Lycanthropes only here. Actual races. Each has different looks and unique specialities.


    What we have is lots of Humans:

    Elves are just skinny, pointy earred Humans who seem to be popular at cosplay dating sites...lol (I play with Drow time to time justfor several specs, same with Human for skills and feats. I enjoy playing with Half orc more)


    Human, skinny Elf humans (lots of their type), short halfling and gnome humans, short fat dwarf human with beards, Human with horns and tail, Human with glowing eyes and wings, Ash skin Shadarkai human...Ok thyre cool and wonderful art and I appreciate the hard work; but

    I believe we have Half orc and Dragonborn as the only real monstrous/aberration (ugly naming yeah) types. Oh and Purple Dragon Knight (Mr Hyde lol!)

    So what did happen to the plans for a new elf racial variant? We haven't heard anything in months about this update to the playable character races.

    Lynnabel? Cocomajobo? Cordovan? Please comment.

Eladrin, which already exist in DDO, and Moon Elves seem somewhat interchangeable however.
    Moon Elves were Forgotten Realms standard elf sub-race, so playing a moon elf would be essentially playing an elf using the elf tree, picking the moon-elf colouring options and ignoring the Dragon Mark options.
    More to the point would be a Gold/Sun elf racial variant, disentangled from the priesthood of Lathander* (Speciality Priest/Prestige class specific benefits shouldn't be the Racial Tree replacements for the Dragonmark, and other (arguably most, given his primary worshippers are human) followers of Lathander shouid also have access to these abilities).

    The Eladrin in DDO are 3.5e and earlier era Eladrin... A celestial race with elven characteristics, while Moon (Silver) and Gold (Sun) elves were elves, alongside Wood Elves, Wild Elves etc.
    The "edition of D&D" that came after 3.5 decided to divide High Elves (the more civilisation based ones) from regular elves (the more nature based ones) and call the first lot Eladrin and the second lot Elves. This did not actually make Moon Elves any more closely related to Ghaele Eladrin than before, nor any more distantly related to Wood Elves, but that "edition" didn't seem interested in making things consistent with the past or transparent to people who already played D&D. Basically, Moon Elves and DDO Eladrin are not interchangeable despite any unnecessary misnaming.

    It would be good to see a whole host of racial variants for all the races but, given current options available, Moon Elves should be further down the line if variants are released one at a time, rather than as a bundle.

    Cosmetics or actual armour/clothing and cloak designs based around different races/sub-races would do a lot to visually distinguish one race's products from another. There's a lot of lore about different sub-races fashions available for the design team to use, and it could add a bit more flavour to loot from new quest packs, as well as potentially make people pay more attention to the appearance of random lootgen.
