World of Warcraft Night Elves Explained

Oct 16, 2007
Night elves were the first creatures in the world of warcraft. They are not a friendly creature. In fact, they have a very difficult time trusting other creatures, especially those who are considered to be a lesser race than them. Overall, night elves are very honorable and good but their use of magic and their preference for the night sometimes causes them to be distrusted by others.

To get a better idea of exactly what the night elves are and what they do, you need to know about the available classes, the starting place/home cities, and the newbie areas.

Racial Abilities

As a night elf, you have an innate ability called shadowmeld. This is an ability that you use before you go into combat. It puts you into stealth mode and lasts until you cancel it or you move. Night Elves also have Quickness which increases their dodge chance by 1% and Wisp Spirit which enables you to turn into a wisp upon death. This gives you a 50% increase in your movement speed while returning to your body. Finally, Night Elves have a natural increased resistance to creatures of nature.

Available Classes

There are five possible classes of night elves. These classes are: druid, hunter, priest, rogue, and warrior.


Druids are magical creatures who are great healers and keepers of nature. They are able to raise the dead on the battlefield and they can cure those who have been victims of poisoning.

Druids also are able to use the forces of nature against their enemies. This includes being able to summon insects and using the energy in nature. Druids can also shape shift and change themselves into a variety of animals including bears, cats, and sea lions.


One of the best attributes of a hunter is the fact that they travel with a pet that helps them inflict damage on the enemy. Hunters are great marksmen from a distance. This allows them to kill from a distance. They are also very good at tracking down enemies and laying traps.


A Priest can fulfill many roles. They are very powerful characters. They are able to heal injured allies and even resurrect them from the dead. Although they have great healing powers, Priests are also able to cause a great deal of damage to their enemies by using holy light or powers of shadow.


Rogues are great at hiding and moving in the shadows so that they can move around unseen. Because of this ability, Rogues are great assassins. They are able to attack without being seen beforehand and they are able to leave the scene of a battle without being noticed. Rogues are also capable of poisoning, opening locks, and disarming traps.


Warriors are very strong and powerful. They gain strength from their anger. They are equally great at attacking and defending. They are built to battle multiple enemies at one time because they gain strength with every blow they deal and that they take.

Starting Place

Night elves come from the city of darnassus. Darnassus is located in teldrassil. Teldrassil is unique because it is a large island. Darnassus is a beautiful city that is built around a series of lakes. The city is perfect for the night elves because it is filled with nature. Darnassus is ruled by the high priestess tyrande whisperwind.

Newbie Areas

When you first become a night elf, you will have the opportunity to become a stronger player by first going through the newbie areas. These are areas that have low level creatures and low level quests. The newbie area will allow your night elf to gain valuable experience.

World of Warcraft has these training grounds so that you can learn how to play a new class and race without facing real danger. Once you grow up in levels you will want to leave darnassus and head to darkshore for some greater challenges and quests.
