Elves have long been the allies of Mankind. together the two great races constructed a kingdom called Zedonia. Gradually however, Elves came to be discriminated against within this great society. As a result, a schism occured in which a contingent of Elves split off and occupied an area of the nothern border of Zedonia which they named Kressia.
The Elf race is part of the Holy camp.

Main Tasks Edit
Main Tasks are quest rewards that are completable once per player. In addition to a number of novice main tasks, there are now dozens of Main Tasks that grant rewards each time the player researches a new technology, builds a new building, or upgrades an existing building.
Skill & building tasks
The rewards for resources seems to go in this order, as irrational as it looks like at 6-8 levels. It would seem to be smart to build every skill/building to level 2 in beginning to gain resources. Skills you never use shouldn't be trained over that to avoid gaining useless fame too early in game. Building to get racial spells (in this case Tree of Life) doesn't seem to appear in tasks. Rewards are listed being percentual amount of the resource usage of the certain purchase.
Level - Reward
1 - 120%
2 - 110%
3 - 100%
4 - 80%
5 - 60%
6 - 40%
7 - 30% (Tower of nature has 42% at this level, perhaps a typo? Haha.)
8 - 25%
9 - 23%
10 - 20% - Not sure about this, but would seem logical.
Daily Tasks Edit

Analysis & StrategyEdit
- Elven players have the best ranged unit, the Elf Hunter. Furthermore, they also have the fastest tier ten unit, the Elf Dragon.
- Dwarwen soldiers are the elves' resource carrier. They are relatively cheap and can carry 150 units. Thus, they will be in use throughout the game
- Centuars, Pegasus Warriors, Unicorns, Green Dragons, and Dryads have questionable use.
- The Elves have average spell abilities.
- The Orc's Forced Conscription or the Undead's Intensive Training would be helpful.
Protected Early Game Edit
( < 2200 Fame)
At this stage, you are protected against other players. Assuming that you are somewhat active, you should have more than 2200 Fame before your protection ends. After finishing the tutorial, your first task is to capture as many mines as you are allowed. The four Elf Hunters you are given are pivitol. Seperate the four you are given into four slots, and begin to capture mines, preferably non-gold.
Your next step should be to build a magic tower, and then research level 1 of all four resource upgrades. Finally, you should upgrade your warehouse a few times and build a market. After your economy has been established, you should focus on preparing to build Dwarwen soldiers.
Much of your income will come from tasks, and the daily visit to world buildings. Do not forget to visit the watermill and the windmill every day. Also, do not forget to complete the daily tasks 'Master key' and 'Lucky Blessing'. Once you reach 800 fame, complete the daily task 'maintain order' once a day to receive 5 elven archers.
Early Game Edit
From this point on, you can be attacked and attack those between 1/5 of your fame and 5 times your fame. The goal of this stage is usually to get an acceptable hero, continue teching, and get a second castle. At this stage, you would want to build at least a level 4 tavern, and hire a blue hero, preferly with good speed. At this stage, speed is the most crucial attribute of a combat hero.
You should attempt to begin teaching to build elven archers. However, continue to build dwarwen soldiers because they will remain useful as carriers.
To conquer a second castle, you would need at least 200 000 units, the more the better and the less units you will lose when conquering a castle.
Which type of castle you should conquer is a matter of debate. However, unless there are extraordinary circumstances, it is usually a good idea to get a castle nearby. Each type of castle gives special advantages. An orc castle will allow you to research Forced Conscription, a hero spell which can be used in conjunction with bootcamp to help you build troops faster, as well as Harden Bones, one of the best combat hero spell in the game. A undead castle will allow you to research intensive training, which has the same effect as Forced Conscription. A human castle allows you to build Archangels, though you'll likely not need until much later. Thus, you can choose to capture a human castle later. An elven castle allows you to build troops faster, but it is generally recommended to get a different one.
Once a day, a player should complete the 'Clean Up Remnants' task to gain 8 dwarwen soldiers.
Dwarwen soldiers and elvens archers should be focused on at this point. The former is very useful for carrying resources, while the latter is useful in combat.
Once you have higher leveled warehouse, you might consider focusing on only one or two types of mines. It is cheaper to simply upgrade one resource then upgrade than many.
Everyday, complete the 'To know our enemy' task to gain 3 scouts.
Every so often, look around to see if there are any inactive players you can attack. Raiding will greatly increase your income. A casual player, depending on how many times he logs on, may want to build up Guard Towers. However, it is of crucial importance not to horde resources in the castle.
A hardcore player has less need for Guard Towers. However, he or she should still develop them a few levels. Most of a Hardcore Player's income will come from raiding other players. Inactive players with low level Guard Towers are the easiest and most profitable to attack.
( 10000 - 80,000 Fame)
There are different theories on when to get a level 10 tavern. Some would prefer to wait until later, while others would begin quickly. The tier 5-7 troops are generally not useful. Thus, it is common to head straight for Elf Hunters.
Near the end, one should have both castle and hero resource spells at high levels.
Beginning at 10,000 fame, a player should have a lot of farms nearby. Scout nearby players, and save the locations of those that seem to be inactive.
( > 80K Fame)
At 80k fame, an Elven player should have both a level 10 tavern, and the ability to build Elite Archers. Players should capitalize on the world resource buildings. To minimize casualties a player should have 5 sets of 50 Elite Archer in addition to a few Dwarven soldiers to carry the resources. After you have 5 heroes outfitted thus, you should try to outfit them with 7 equal sets of Elite Archers, such that the total carrying capacity is 28800 or greater.
Getting a good hero, preferably an elven one, at the point is crucial. Once you have one, level him/her up, and use the arena whenever possible.
As you are building up an army of Elite Archers you should also begin to teach to Elf Dragons. In the arena, Fairy dragon are usually much more effective than Elite Archer. A player should ignore green dragons, as Fairy Dragon are much more powerful.
A player, at about 100 000 fame, should have Resource Control and their primary castle resource upgrade at level 10.
What kind of castle a player should take as a third castle depends on the second. An orc castle should have been taken either as the second or the third. The orc castle will allow one to research Forced Conscription and Harden Bones. The former will help increase troop building speed, while the latter is very useful in arena and battle.
Guard Towers should be high leveled at this point if a player cannot log on often. Level 10 Guard Towers are recommended. Much of your income will come from world resource buildings. With 5 heroes occupying resource towers for 12 hours everyday, a player would gain 14400 of sulfur or crystal or 28800 of lumber or ore.
Much of your resources will come from raiding other players. Ivory towers are the best way for a player who is suppressing his fame to level up his or her hero.
