Elf rpers should be focused on becoming, well, an elevated Human, really. 

 

With lots of elegance and grace to their personality, high intelligence, love of the arts, proficiency in combat & magic, perhaps a more serious outer tone among other things. (MOST Sin'dorei, Quel'dorei, and Kaldorei may also have a greater respect for life, refusing to use cowardly 'new age' weapons like guns, as well as hating dark magic, whereas a Human or a Dwarf might lack the wisdom and dignity to refuse such tools. Though, there are definitely exceptions to this.)

 

That's just the base for how I'd personally RP an Elf, though. (AnD As We AlL KNoW esADan iS thE greAtEsT rolEplayER oF oUr timE so YoU ShoulD DeFinITelY TakE HiS WoRd AS AbSoluTe FacT)

 

(kaldorei master elf race btw, just sayin)

i wouldnt go so far as to consider their lack of guns as seeing it as "cowardly". especially in the case of night elves, their sort-of culture just hasn't evolved to such a technological point that guns and other modern inventions would become the standard over bows.

 

it's also just a matter of tradition, the 3 races you mentioned have just always used bows in all their existence. it's no wonder bows are preferred over something they may've only recently found out about.

there are blood elven guns in the game and they have employed 'dark magic' to a point where every elf living within quel'thalas was left effected by its presence while it was there

It depends on what you want to achieve with the character, honestly. I always like worldbuilding through mine so I'll pick a topic like "class and medicine in Quel'thalas" and think up a character whose experiences can address it. This usually involves going through the history of the race, situating the character in said history and think about how they could've managed to get to their current age. I usually focus basic details (parents/siblings/friends) and on formative experiences (schooling or lack thereof, favorite holidays, potential motivators/traumas etc.).

 

I then use that information with some assumptions about how their society works (assumptions that went into the first part) and flesh it out further with different dietary/grooming habits, mannerisms etc. Then I play the character to work out some of the kinks.

 

I'm not a big fan of broad, sweeping race descriptions. I'd rather have a mixture of general in-universe impressions from other races and  information about their practices sorta like in the RPG. It's more interesting to say that El'ond'ur'l's tendency to be very longwinded and florid in his speech comes from the fact the Thalassian upper crust enjoyed so much leisure time, they'd literally try and outgas each other than to just say "elves speak proper" or something.
