...Because it seems this topic needs to be. It's more stubborn than Sylvanas, and just as undying.

Void elf Customization Options:

Void Elf Recruitment Storyline:

Void Elf Theme:

Void Elf preview in Wowhead's Dressing Room (featuring my character, Alamara, as a Void Elf):

------- Racial Abilities -------

Spatial Rift: Rip a hole in space and time. Reactivate this ability to teleport through the rift. 30 yd range. 1.5 min cooldown.
Chill of Night: Reduces Arcane and Shadow damage taken by 1%.
Entropic Embrace: Your abilities have a chance to empower you with the essence of the Void.
Ethereal Connection: Reduces the cost of Void Storage and Transmogrification by 50%
Preturnatural Calm: Your spell casts are not delayed by taking damage.

------- Void Form -------
For the curious, this seems to be velves' Void Form. It's a separate model, not an effect applied over the character, so it shouldn't affect the gear (unless there's additional effects applied over it).

This was datamined a while ago in 7.3.5

It's probably related to Entropic Embrace racial passive that "has a chance of enhancing your attacks". Seem to be activated at random during combat, and lasts for who-knows-how-long.

------- About Customization -------

All allied races are still being worked on. For instance, they removed the body paint from male Highmountain tauren skins in last build. That indicates that paint will be a separate customization option not available right now.

Same about the nightborne tatoos: if you look Blizzcon preview, the tattoos are meant to actually be arcane runes, not just the white patches over the skin like current PTR nightborne model has.

Most allied races have criminally low variations of skin and hair color as well, which may mean more options will still be added.

Not to mention that, if body paint is going to be a new custom category for hm tauren, then void elves are the only allied race so far without additional "special" categories to customize, which may mean they are going to get more things added to them.

My suggestions for more variation on Void Elf skins (made before 7.3.5 was in PTR. #1 is the original, we got a very close one to #2 in PTR. Consider giving us something like #3, #4 and #5, Blizzard!):

-------- PTR Discussion Topics --------
Void Elves need more skins!

About VE customization in general:


There'll probably be a ton of new info on BfA and Allied Races in the next few weeks. Let's see what happens.

Thanks for all the discussion on Void Elves guys! Tons of great conversations and suggestions over all instances of this thread that we will be combing through now that we're back.

We will have more to share on Allied Races in general as we move forward, but for now, I've extended to cap on this thread to help contain and build the discussions happening here.
