The elves of Middle Earth

Did you know that the elves were the first creatures of Middle-Earth to speak or sing? Learn more about the beautiful and mysterious elves of Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar in our new race guide.

Elves occupy themselves with things such as smithwork, sculpture, song and other arts; they are known for their craftsmanship. Both male and female elves tend to do things with equal skill. Although females have a greater tendency to specialize in healing abilities while the males go off to war, their roles are not rigid--a female elf can defend herself in battle as well as a male, and a male can be as skilled a healer as any female.
