The felblood elves[1] (or felbloods)[2][3] are an offshoot of the blood elf race that — like fel orcs before them — have been corrupted by the Burning Legion.


The felblood elves are a group of Kael'thas Sunstrider's most loyal followers, who were rewarded by Kil'jaeden with the gift of being allowed to gorge themselves on demonic blood for days for remaining in Outland, even as many of his blood elves retreated through the Dark Portal.

Felblood Initiates remain behind at the Throne of Kil'jaeden in the Hellfire Peninsula where they feast on siphoned fel energy from Suspended Terrorguards, though many are counted amongst Kael's invading forces on the Isle of Quel'Danas. There, a felblood named Selin Fireheart can be found in the Magisters' Terrace, while a force known as the Shadowsword resides in the Sunwell Plateau — appearing to be responsible for the capturing of M'uru from the secret chamber beneath the Blood Knight headquarters.


Felblood elves

In addition to bearing runic tattoos, they have developed various demonic features, such as unnatural skin and hair colors, horns, and what appear to be small, black-feathered wings — as well as cracks and openings in their skin, which reveal green fel energy glowing from within. Their cuspid teeth are prominent and drape idly out of their mouths during speech, giving them a vampire-like appearance. Unlike the Wretched, who lose most of their hair, felblood elves seem to bypass this aspect of corruption.

  • Fel elf is the model name used in the game's files. It is unclear if it's an actual race name or just a description. If it is the race name, that would make the felblood more of a faction term or a nickname. Felblood has also been used to describe other demonic creatures as well, as well as the blood of terrorfiends. Like stated above, the blood elves are siphoning energy from Suspended Terrorfiends, so the fact that a terrorfiend's blood is called Felblood, and these elves are also called Felblood, makes sense.
  • During the Fall of the Lich King PTR, most of the San'layn stationed within the Crimson Hall of Icecrown Citadel used Felbloods' models. They were later changed to undead blood elves with death knight skins and unique Blood Princes models.
  • Valdris Felgorge is a felblood elf in Hearthstone. In its March of the Lich King expansion, the fate of the felblood elves and fel-corrupted Wretched is elaborated upon: outcast from blood elf society, these remnants have united under the demon hunters and, in some cases, become demon hunters themselves.[4]
