Out leaped the Wood-elves with their bows and spears and called the Dwarves to a halt.

A Wood-Elf Scout is a special type of Wood-Elf that spawns in the Woodland Realm.

These Elves wear a full suit of Wood-elven scout armour that gives them a permanent speed boost. They are armed with a Bow of Mirkwood that shoots up to 24 blocks away.


Wood-elf scouts have an infinite speed boost due to their armour.

Unlike most Elves, their only weapon is their bow, which they prefer to use from long distances. Therefore, when an enemy gets too close, Wood-elf scouts will disappear in a flurry of leaves and appear somewhere farther off to start attacking again.


You can hire these Elves from a Wood-elf captain if your alignment with the Woodland Realm is +300 or higher. Their price starts at 40 silver coins a piece, and decreases as the player's alignment increases. The price can reach a minimum of 20 coins.

Advantages Disadvantages
Powerful ranged attack No melee attack
A very fast-moving unit, due to their armour Armour is rather weak
Can teleport away if an NPC gets too close
Deadly against large units (Trolls, Olog-Hai, Mirk-trolls, etc.)
Immune to poison
