The Half Elf

race logoThe Half Elf starts off in either Freeport or Qeynos/Surefall and has several options of where to hunt right from the start. What is the best strategy for playing a Half Elf? What zones and cities should you take him to and which ones should you avoid? Which factions should you work on improving, and which factions should you be wary of decreasing? What are the best quests in Freeport and Qeynos for the beginning Half Elf? Where are the best shops? How should you role play your Half Elf?

Post your strategies on how to best play a Half Elf, and read, rate and comment on those posted by others.

I have chosen a path less traveled. Barely accepted by humans and elves, loved by none except Mithaniel Marr. The calling in me is strong but my body is not ... yet. With low strength, stamina and wisdom there is much to overcome during my quest to spread Marr's light throughout Norrath.

Any words of wisdom for this youngster?

Does anyone have any recommendations as to whether a half elf ranger should worship Tunare or Karana? Are there any advantages in the long run for worshipping either one? Thanks!

To tell u the truth,i dont know if half elf warriors are any good,they have terrible hitpoints unless u have urber gear....dont make a mistake lyk i did when i made mine...i truly think that they cant take hits,and the whole point of a warrior is 2 take ALL aggro and take lots of hits...which this race cannot do....

xp deficit
# Feb 11 2004 at 5:20 AM Rating: Decent
I was told by someone that I have an XP deficit for being a "mutt" so to speak...not quite as bad as an ikky, but not good. Is that true? Or does it just FEEL like I level slower than ppl next to me at the same lvl? If so, what is the deficit?

Ogres, Trolls, Iksar have experience deficits to offset special racial abilities. Halflings get a bonus to offest racial deficiencies. Elves have a small penalty. Humans, Barbarians and Half Elves have neither.

I will be having an EQ wedding in a couple of weeks. I'm having problems finding a set of armor suitable for wedding attire. I'd prefer a robe graphic, but I understand that half-elves have none. If that's the case, I'm trying to find armor that is a very light color; either white, silver, or gold.

Thanks for the help!

Try Silver Ornate Chain or Gold Ornate Chain. It is forged by PC smiths and is commonly made as a skill up vehicle for smiths with skill over 130. It is actually very lovely. The Platimum Ornate Chain has a lavender color and the Electrum version is green.

Combining Items

1 post
OK. I'm having trouble combining things in my Leafrunner's Assembly kit. I've got each item in its own slot (nothing is stacked), and I don't have the pattern. I've tried reorganizing the pieces and everything, and I'm still getting the "These items cannot blah blah blah" message.


Any ideas?

Be more specific. What combine are you trying?

I know there are a couple items for these quests, that have identical names to non-quest items, and are only distinguished by a different icon.

Don't include the actual mold/pattern in the assembly kit when you combine. I made that mistake. The molds/patterns get used in the next step.

Rangers should take up Fletching. Its fairly cheap early on but can get very expensive at the higher levels. As a half-elf you can do smithing but you cannot do the cultural smithing specialties. At some point you will want pottery to 122 so you can make a gate potion.

Associated Name

OK, so dark elves are known as tier`dals, high elves are also known as koal`dal (sure the spellings are way off, but you get the point.) So, do half elves have such an associaton?

Half elves are the offspring of crossbreeding between humans and any of the pure elves. Their background could be half-dark-elf, half-high-elf, or half-wood-elf.

As such, they don't have a single specific elven name, and no culture of their own. They are neither fully elf, nor fully human.

Having said this, SOE generally seems to treat half elves as half wood elf, and half human, judging by their appearance, starting cities, and allowable classes.

Blame it on those druids, and their drunken wolf-form parties Smiley: smile

Half Elf warriors can have Inoruuk as thier God, and they let gnomes be shadow knights, why can't Half-Elves be shadow knights?

I sure would at least trust him 50% of the way, but let me ask you. Would you trust a puny little big headed gnome at all with the dark arts. They need to go back to the illusionist guild.

Define "useless." While some races may not have the stats to make them the #1 best character for certain classes, I would bet you dollars to donuts that I could take any race, put it in any class (even, since this is hypothetical, a class they can't enter), and have a hell of a fun time. That being said...

A Half-Elf makes a decent Ranger, but they will lag behind some of the other races the higher you go in level.

I think I'll go petition for my Troll Bard now. :D

Half-Elves are not useless. The downside for ranger/druid is the low WIS stat. But that is easy to make up with equipment.

Try the druid section for more specific advice. I can suggest North Karana or South Karana.

Best way to Everfrost is to use the PoP book to Halas. If you don't have PoP you can port to Surefall Glade then run to Qeynos Hills, Blackburrow, and then to Everfrost Peaks.

Druids, as I understand it (I dont play one), have more options in Outdoor zones. Try Frontier Mts in Kunark, Maru Seru on Luclin, or South Karana.
