If you’ve ever looked up blood elf warrior lore you probably didn’t find much. 

In-game, they should’ve launched with The Burning Crusade but warriors were removed at the last moment.  Blood elves eventually got warriors in Cataclysm but there was no explanation for their sudden appearance nor any details on their class culture.

Others think the blood elves only developed true warriors after being part of the Horde and the Cataclysm was simply their opportunity to organize (like tauren paladins, troll druids, etc.).
