Night Elves get the spotlight in World of Warcraft, with mixed results
Night elf | WoWWiki | Fandom
The reclusive Night Elves were the first race to awaken in the World of Warcraft. These shadowy, immortal beings were the first to study magic and let it loose throughout the world nearly ten thousand years before Warcraft I. The Night Elves' reckless use of magic drew the Burning Legion into the world and led to a catastrophic war between the two titanic races. The Night Elves barely managed to banish the Legion from the world, but their wondrous homeland was shattered and drowned by the sea. Ever since, the Night Elves refused to use magic for fear that the dreaded Legion would return.
The night elves or kaldorei , which means "Children of the Stars" in their native tongue of Darnassian are among the oldest known races in Azeroth. They have a long and fascinating history. Native to the western continent of Kalimdor , the night elves ended a long period of seclusion at the end of the Third War and became members of the Alliance. The night elves are the direct descendants of dark trolls. This peace loving and fiercely independent tribe took up residence at the Well of Eternity.
