Looking through some of my older screenshots, I found another one to show – here I am on my bloodelf hunter with my oldest WoW friend just after I finally got my Thunderfury as well, a while after helping him to get his legendary, so we compared the size..
I mean, alright, elves are significantly smaller and thinner than tauren so it’s natural, but even a gnome has a bigger sword than that, I’ve tried the same comparison! And while standing right next to each other, one looks like a big and intimidating weapon and the other like a sparkling toothpick in the meantime. I knew Blizzard never wanted female bloodelves as close ranged and weapon wielding fighters, this makes it obvious! 😀
I don’t really mind, I always hated the sound female bloodelves make when hitting something in close combat, but it’s a bit mortifying for the ‘Blessed Blade of the Windseeker’.. And probably any other sword that is meant to look like a dangerous weapon, or at least impressing.^^
