This is a tall and powerful Elven species who advance in levels slowly, requiring half again as much experience as Humans. They have good intelligence and dexterity, but suffer in strength. Compared with Humans, they have fewer HP but more magic. Among all Elves, they are best with blades and bows. They are not very good with necromancy or with earth or poison magic, but are highly skilled with most other forms of magic.

Innate Abilities

  • High Elves receive a bonus when using elven weapons and armour. Though elven armour impedes spellcasting less than non-elven armour for all species, this bonus is amplified for High Elves. They are also slightly more accurate with elven weapons.

Difficulty of Play

High Elves are a rather easy species to play, because of good aptitudes overall, a large mana pool, and very good attributes; however, they have slightly lower HP (-10%) than normal and level somewhat slowly.
