Description[edit | edit source]

In Ulthuan, those who devote their lives to magic are treated with the highest respect and honour. Though each kingdom has its own magical traditions and methods of scholarship, Saphery is the realm most famed for its mages, and it is at the White Tower of Hoeth that Ulthuan's seat of magical learning can be found. There, the greatest collection of Mages, Loremasters and scholars in the world endeavour to perfect their mastery of the sorcerous arts. It is a place of wonders unbounded, where mages strive to harness every aspect of the Winds of Magic.

Much of the High Elves´ power in melee fights comes from their Martial Prowess and Martial Mastery abilities, which are deactivated when the fighting unit loses half or more of its health. This makes the elven Mage with the Lore of Life arguably the most efficient spellcaster option for their army; well timed use of Earthblood and Regrowth will keep your units topped at peak performance for as long as possible.
