The Elves were the first to charge. Their hatred for the goblins is cold and bitter. Their spears and swords shone in the gloom with a gleam of chill flame, so deadly was the wrath of the hands that held them.

[...] and out upon the other side came many of the spearmen of the Elves.

Wood-elf warriors are among the strongest type of Wood-elf. They wear Wood-elven armour and may use Wood-elven equipment as well as the Bow of Mirkwood. Like other Elves, their swords will glow blue when Orcs are near.


Wood-elven warriors spawn rarely in the Woodland Realm, mostly inhabiting towers. When low on health, they will eat lembas to heal themselves. Sometimes, a Wood-elf warrior will spawn mounted on a elk, which gives them increased mobility when in combat and increased detection range.


Wood-elf warriors can be hired from captains starting for 50 silver coins, at +350 Woodland Realm alignment. A mounted variant can also be hired upon reaching +450 Woodland Realm alignment, starting at 70 coins each. Note that the price decreases as your alignment increases.
