When players first enter EverQuest II one of the very first choices that they have to make is which race to play. With all of the choices available, new players and old alike may have trouble making the decision. Today, Adele Caelia tells us why it's good to play a High Elf in Norrath.
The Koada’Dal, also known as the High Elves are the first children of Tunare the goddess of growth and mother of all that is beautiful in Norrath. The High Elves were born long ago when Tunare walking through the woods noticed a glint of sunlight on her gown. Touching the light, Tunare whispered a few words, and the Koada’Dal were born.
The Koada’Dal once lived in Tunaria, now Antonica, and now hail from the fair city of Felwithe, built with the help of the dwarves. The mixing of dwarven stonework and elven magic created the most beautiful city in all of Norrath. The walls of Felwithe are covered in ivy with streams and ponds flowing throughout. Legend says that Felwithe was built upon Caerthiel, a dark elf city. Most High Elves deny this, but there are a few that say there is evidence under the city. The elves were forced to flee Tunaria when Solusek Ro envious of the blessings given to them by Tunare, and jealous of Tunare herself, altered the great mountain causing the sun to burn down upon Tunaria drying up the land, trees, and water. Innoruuk, the prince of hate was also jealous of Tunare, and attempted to lure the elven prince to the plane of hate. The elven king and queen went in place of the prince, and Innoruuk surprised, but happy by this turn of events quickly swept them away to the plane of hate. Innoruuk then tortured and turned them against one another recreating them in his own image, thus came into being the Teir’Dal or Dark Elves. After the destruction of the Elddar Forest of Tunaria and the loss of their king and queen, the High Elves sailed across the Ocean of Tears, the ocean being the tears of Tunare that she shed for her children. The city of Felwithe is named after Alissa Felwithe, who took leadership of the elves in this dark time.
