“Ranging forth from the enchanted forests of Athel Loren, they may capture any settlement in The Old World and set up expansionary outposts. In battle, they offer a swift, glass-cannon play style,” said Sega as quoted by PC Gamer. “By far the most powerful and versatile archers in the game, they can equip a range of magical arrows, fire on the move and are often joined by their Woodland allies such as Dryads, Great Eagles, Forest Dragons and vast, ancient Treemen.”

“Realm of the Wood Elves” allows players free access to Jade and Grey Empire wizards. The Jade wizards use Ghyran, the Lore of Life. They primarily focus on buffs and health-generating spells, but also utilise a few damaging tricks. The Jade wizards’ spells include Lifebloom (Augment), Awakening of The Wood (Explosion), Flesh To Stone (Augment), Shield of Thorns (Augment), Regrowth (Augment), Earth Blood (Augment) and The Dwellers Below (Direct Damage).
