Elves are a very withdrawn and isolated race. There are nearly no facts as to how they appeared in Quiltlands or their culture. Elves cannot use items made by other races and never hire alien warriors. Elves' troops are not numerous, but they are very accomplished in battle. Elves have excellent magic techniques.
When you choose an Elf character, you are to think out your tactics thoroughly. Elves' advantages do not involve brute force. What you should focus on when choosing a character of Elf is good artefacts and magic power. But you should also remember that some artefacts can be expensive.
