Was there any impact? I think for GB probably not. They didn't change anything afaik about the looks, or? Also in terms of in-game conversations and items, there isn't much going on for high elves at least (hopefully different for wood elves). I'm mid-through act 3 and had probably 2, 3 unique high elf conversation options (my drow had more before the Underdark already). And afaik none of the iconic elven items made it into the game (elven chain, boots and cloak of elvenkind). The only thing I have seen so far is a Corellon staff.
