LOTRO Players posted its initial impressions of the race, which will be able to roll every class except for Beornings and Burglars. High Elves look slightly different (particularly their hair) and have several useful racial skills, such as a revive and an out-of-combat run speed boost.
The premium race also boasts a new introduction, with the High Elves fighting as part of the First Alliance way back in the Second Age. An untimely wound by a Nazgul blade results in the player character being taken to Rivendell for a long period of recuperation, leading to the present era.
Check out the High Elf character creator after the break, and stay tuned for our LOTRO Legendarium column later today!
