Obsolete: This article refers to an aspect of the game which has been removed. It is retained for historical reference only.

Grey elves were an elven species midway between high elves and deep elves, though generally closer to deep elves. They were competent at using Short Blades, Long Blades, and bows, but were poor at other fighting skills and had little durability. Their magical aptitudes were generally excellent, particularly in Air Magic, but they had little talent for Necromancy and Earth Magic.
