If i had a dollar for every time i read someone quoting this fan made trash I'd be very rich. There are no male elf npcs because PA was too lazy to make them. 

If PA could release dark elff male class, they could implement some npc as well

because in the early lore, female were more sensitive to magic than male. Male who wanted to learn magic needed many many years to be finally be able to manipulate it, they consecrated almost all their life to reach the point that female could reach at way more young age.

that was never in the lore. That was weeb fanon from black-desert.com. stop being misinformed k thanks.

Same as in Lineage 2.

You could pick "male" on char creation but it only changed the clothes :|

In the Lord of the Rings (and others) lore the Dwarf females look male, right down to the beard. For the most part only other dwarves can tell at a glance what gender another dwarf is (although anyone can tell upon closer inspection). So maybe there are male elves after all? M

No no. 50% of elves are actually female like most races. It's just REALLY hard to tell the difference.

No, i'm gonna call BS on this. I searched the lore of the game for a while and never found anything about this or about the males.

Given the fact that they had a male elf model long ago as a placeholder for a male archer. I think they just didnt want to make them and never gave a concrete reason why.

If we go by the OP's logic, there are also no female human children, no female dwarves, no female giants.  Or, we can go with what PA has been doing all along and say that they just didn't make male elven NPCs since "Male Elves" are not the only gap.  They'd have to design multiple clothing options, multiple hairstyles, multiple faces, add animations and so-on.  I can see that being something they might skip over.

This is from only a few months ago: http://www.dualshockers.com/2016/09/11/black-desert-online-interview-pearl-abyss-talks-dark-elves-future-updates-fixes-and-much-more/

"Giuseppe Nelva: A little while ago, you released the art for the new Dark Elf class. Is it going to be female-only?

Pearl Abyss: We are totally considering a male dark elf, but the female is ready, since the idea came up a while ago."

Don't you think that if male elves were an impossibility they would have said something when the topic came up?   ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 

There are no male elf npcs because PA was too lazy to make them. 

Bingo.

They've already said that they're open to making a male elven class, and we know that male Elves almost existed at one point, and that there's a hidden "Male Elf" NPC in the game files (1, 2).  Orwen is also noted as being exceptional for being half-elf and half-human, which would make zero sense if there was no such thing as a "full elf" in the first place.

More likely than not, they may be a "female majority" race.  We've seen this with Shai, and the opposite with the Otter race (who are mostly male with less females).  BDO lore, with the exception of humans loves, making one sex more common than the other among its races—for whatever reason.

Knowing PA, we'll get a single male elven NPC and he'll have a knowledge article that says "Males are rare among the Elven people" or something like that.

No, i'm gonna call BS on this. I searched the lore of the game for a while and never found anything about this or about the males.
Given the fact that they had a male elf model long ago as a placeholder for a male archer. I think they just didnt want to make them and never gave a concrete reason why.

Correct.  This was fan lore made on black-desert.com in their fan comic many people thought was "the lore of the game".  It isn't.  Women and men are just as good at magic as one another.

cant be a lesbian if theres no opposition though... Lesbian is base on girls liking girls as oppose to like boys, but in the case of what we know boys dont exists so therefor theyre not lesbian but rather heterosexual in their own way...

Well they know boys do exist cause humans and giants...

Btw are all giants gay too ? B|

The reason as to why there are no male elfs in the trailers or zones is simply because they have not bothered creating the model.

Pretty much this (And their excuse for lore) but as with Young Wizard it's proven they change it how they wish to shoe-horn things in.

It's people like you who almost make me stop caring about sexism against women. You don't get to be sexist against men to "empower" women. And it's all about SEX. Korean devs focus more on their fap material than equally creating content for both genders. period. All this other garbage is dumb and sounds dumb.

It's nothing against you, but it gets really annoying when people excuse laziness with lore. There are soooooooo many male mages in the game that aren't old, even goblins can use magic, so it never made sense to begin with.
