Properly known as Vaerim, High Elves are the most common elven race. Compared to humans, they are both lighter and more attractive, and have long pointed ears. They boast superior speed, hearing, eyesight, and magical aptitude compared to humans, but suffer from inferior strength and fortitude.
High Elves tend to construct their settlements far from human civilization, often secluded deep within forests, where they devote their time to the arts and the study of magic and nature. Most elves in The Maelstrom are concentrated in the woodland nation of Savanor on Andalar.
