Warhammer Online Hands-on with the Dark Elves at GameSpy
Baby-kicking evil elves, at their finest.
GameSpy got the chance to tool around a bit in the shoes of Warhammer Online's Dark Elf race.
In Warhammer lore, the Dark Elves are the renegade faction of the Elvish race. Thousands of years ago Malekith, the son of the Elvish king Aenarion, was deemed unsuitable for the Phoenix Throne because of his unstable and warlike nature. Outraged at such a nonsensical charge, the peace-loving prince responded by engineering a bloody civil war that nearly exterminated the elves as a race and resulted in the permanent division of the Elves into two mutually hostile camps. In Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, Malekith learns of an impending invasion of the human Empire by Chaos and uses that to kick off a cunning plan that will finally result in the Dark Elf conquest of their homeland of Ulthuan and his ascension to the throne.
