My first eye set. :x I know they arn't the greatest out there, and I probably did something wrong, but I thought I should share these beauties with you. ^-^

This all started when I realized I couldn't find any decent eyes for any of my Sim versions of my WoW related characters. So I made them. None of the eyes are a solid color (even the silver night elf eyes) mainly because those eyes just look miserable.

First off, before I get any kind of comments about it, here's some lore as to why there's so many colors (all of this is gathered from http://www.wowwiki.com/Portal:Main ) :

Concerning High Elves:
"Their eyes are incredibly intense in color, seeming to glow with an inner light. While many high elves have blue or green eyes (ex. Alleria) (ToD 117), violet and red are not unheard of. (WoWRPG 36 )"

As a note, I did not do green versions of the high elf eyes because they're waaay too close to blood elf eyes.

Concerning Night Elves:
"Female night elven eyes glow blue while male's eyes have an amber glow to them."

"Among night elves, gold-colored eyes, as opposed to the traditional silver, are a sign of inherent druidic potential. Among the class-obsessed night elves who lived prior to the War of the Ancients, gold eyes were rare, and thus viewed as a sign of underlying greatness. Queen Azshara and Illidan Stormrage, both extremely powerful sorcerers, had golden eyes. The night elves became vastly more egalitarian since the War's end, abandoning their former obsession with bloodlines, and thus, gold eyes are now far more common. In addition, druidism spread throughout night elven society, and many night elves develop gold eyes after birth if they practice the art.

Though gold eyes are a sign that the individual has a natural ability for druidic magic, it does not mean that all gold-eyed night elves become druids, or that silver-eyed night elves are unable. Malfurion Stormrage himself was born with silver eyes, and developed golden eyes only after studying druid magic. His own brother, though born with golden eyes, lacked the patience to succeed in the art."

In other words, it's entirely possible for female night elves to have golden eyes or even for males to have silver. Please, by all means do whatever with them!

Now, for the good stuff:







As a note where the red one is concerned, I like to use the red eyes for Dark Rangers, since they tend to have eyes like that. X3

I'm also aware my nelfs don't have pointed ears like the high elves... it's because this set is part of a WoW-based collection I'm working on and I havn't gotten to skins yet. :P

I use a LOT of custom content for my Sims, and unfortunately a lot of it gets lost to the wayside due to me not being able to find the original creators. I'll put due credit to those that I know for certain, however.

Most (if not all) of the hair was done by the lovely people at XMSims. http://www.xmsims.com/sims2/ehtm/main/index.htm
All of the skins (except for the ones on the night elf models) were done by the amazing Enayla. http://www.modthesims2.com/member.php?u=40418
I've however, lost track of who did the skins the night elves have... please, if you know who did them, tell me so I can credit them!
The ears are recolors of Ren's elven ears: http://www.modthesims2.com/member.php?u=177232

I love WoW and I play it as well. BE's are my favorite and are you going to be able to post the skins to this? I love them so much. Have you heard about all the people on this crazy game (WoW) who have been stealing people's accounts? My friend lost their Lvl70 yesterday!!! And, thanks. I love them. Hope you put more up soon!!! No Pressure though

To PyroPrincess: Although the red and purple eyes are not in-game material there's lore that alludes to high elves having these eye colors. Red is seen most often on Dark Rangers, who are undead high elves.

To Mandapanda89: I won't be doing skins for the high/blood elves because they pretty much have normal skintones and beautiful skintones that would work for them already exist. Check out Enayla's skins, that's what I use. I'll be doing night elf versions when I get around to it, but it may be some time yet. I've heard about a lot of people being hacked, it seems to be a growing problem... Blizz can usually restore characters that were hacked, but I'm not sure if they can restore lost gear.

And as always, thank you for downloading! Lots of love!

Very nice! I always like uni-colored eyes; I'm looking forward to trying these out. (What is a hacked character?)

Technically she is a High Elf, but Lady Sylvanas (the Forsaken ruler) has red eyes. I know that right now she doesn't, because her character model is a Night Elf right now, but after Wrath of the Lich King comes out she will be replaced with a character model that looks more like what she actually should look like: http://www.wowwiki.com/Image:Sylvanasnew.jpg

Also at least one Blood Elf NPC in the Death Knight starting area for Wrath of the Lich King has red eyes.

Interestingly, the blue High Elf eyes could be used for any Warcraft race that is a Death Knight. All Death Knights have blue glowing eyes (at least in testing right now), no matter if they are Gnomes or Trolls or anything else.

really glad you have done red eyes, thanks for taking the time to read up on things like this. i know you could have done any eyes you wanted really, but kowing there is realism behind them makes them nicer some how :P

a hacked character is someone's account that had the password broken and the account stolen.

Just wanted to say that all your elves look great! I especially love the shapes you have on your BE faces. I never could get my faces to shape that well when trying to make an NE in my game. You've done a great job! And the eyes are really cool too!
