|Attack1|| 10 (hit: plain)
|Uses|| Weapons & armour|
|An elf, a member of an ancient fey race. Elves are slightly built when compared to humans, and have an innate magical acumen, though less than their deep elf cousins.|
Plain elves are fairly boring humanoid monsters, only posing a threat if they happen to find a decent weapon before you encounter them. However, they are only ever found in a handful of rare vaults. You are much more likely to encounter a shapeshifter which has assumed the shape of an elf, usually on one of the middle floors of the Dungeon.
You can find deformed elves, febrile elves, and sickly elves in some of the sealed chambers in Cigotuvi's Fleshworks.
|This poor creature looks hideously deformed.|
Tips & Tricks
- The uniques Dowan, Duvessa, and Fannar are listed simply as "elf" for their species.
- If you see an elf roaming free and it doesn't appear to be part of a vault or have any equipment, it's probably a shapeshifter.
- Prior to 0.13, you could find grey elves, who had the same stats, in some vaults.
