Often reviled for their mincing, languid animations, their snotty voice emotes, and the fact that they often pirouette when jumping.
thousands of years ago, the exiled Highborne landed on the shores of Lordaeron and founded the enchanted kingdom of Quel'Thalas. These high elves, as they called themselves, created a fount of vast, magical energies within the heart of their land - the Sunwell. Over time, they grew dependant on the Sunwell's unstable energies - regardless of the bitter lessons they'd learned in ages past.
During the Third War, the villainous Prince Arthas invaded Quel'Thalas and reduced the once-mighty realm to rubble and ashes. His undead army decimated nearly ninety percent of the high elven population. In addition, he used the Sunwell's energies to resurrect Kel'thuzad - a powerful undead Lich - thereby fouling the Sunwell's mystical waters. The few elven survivors, realizing that they had been cut off from the source of their arcane power, grew increasingly volatile and desperate.
In the midst of the elves' darkest hour came Kael'thas Sunstrider - the last of Quel'Thalas' royal bloodline. Kael, as he was commonly known, knew that the remnant of his people would not long survive without the nourishing magics that once empowered them. Renaming his people blood elves, in honor of their fallen countrymen, he taught them how to tap into ambient mystical energies - even demonic energies - in order to sate their terrible thirst for magic. In search of a new destiny for his people, Kael'thas ventured to the remote world of Outland where he encountered the fallen night elf, Illidan. Under Illidan's tutelage, Kael and his blood elves have regained much of their former power.
Unfortunately, the blood elves' practice of embracing demonic energies resulted in them being shunned by their former comrades in the Alliance. Thus, the remaining blood elves on Azeroth look desperately to the Horde to help them reach Outland, where they can reunite with Kael'thas and achieve the golden destiny he promised them.

Their appearance is pale and frail compared to the other races of WoW and they have glowing green eyes. Because of their beautiful complexions they are often the butt of jokes in a party with other races. Many will despise your character's snotty emotes and will make fun of the way he or she dances. Also you will be kicked out of totem dance parties by Shaman class group members.
In Aqua Teen Hunger Force episode called Bus of the Undead, Master Shake describes something similar to a blood elf that he calls the bus of the undead which he defines as a reverse vampire. He had the following to say about the reverse vampires.
"Hes a reverse vampire, they crave the sun.
They love it. They love to get tans."
"The wheels, those are the markings"
He also said they are from Tansylvania.
Blood elves crave the sunwell and live in a kingdom bathed in light, and they are also often seen riding hawkstriders. A blood elf hunter also prefers cats over bats unlike their nocturnal brethren. So it can be said that they are reverse vampires.
