Quel'thalas "Long time ago, the high elves landed in Tirisfal and settled there to feed on magic of the area, but lots of them became to turn mad and sick due to a bad inlfuence beneath the ground, so they continued traveling to the east, till finding eversong woods and settling there, where they created a great city: Silvermoon, and stablished the Sunwell in an island of the north, wich would feed them for the yeats to come. But eversong woods were not empy, full of trolls of the Amani Empire, the elves had to fight to prosper, soon it became a massive war called as the Troll War wich was won only thanks to the humans, who saved the elves of extinction. But the endless war between Quel'thalas and Zul Aman didnt end with that victory, lots of battles has came later, the last one was the Second War, in wich the orcs allied with the trolls and they burnt part of the eversong woods and Eastweald, and sieged Quel'thalas, again, the elves were saved thanks to the humans. But now, more problems seems to appear in the south, with the humans bussy with the orcs and a new plague, the elves will have to deal with the Amani on their own, except from some help of Nathanos, ranger captain in the Eastweald. The elves are smaller and weaker, but they are wiser and much better magicians, with the blessing of the sunwell, the power of their magi and the wise rule of Anasterian, they will achieve victory once again." The Alliance is a team of cooperation, Dalaran, Dwarves and Lordaeron will fight agaisnt the horde, first legion and silver hand will purge the undeads and Eastweald will help the dwarves in the hinterlands. But the elves are quite isolated, far away in the north, with the southern reaches of their realm burnt and abandoned, they may only recieve help of the eastweald to face the amani. They are much stronger than you, and will defeat you with no doubt at all... Unless you use your magic: Sunwell will empower your elven units, making them able to face the trolls in combat and Bandinoriel protects Silvermoon from a direct attack, also, the great houses of Quel'thalas: Duskwhiter, Sunstrider, Dawnstar and Windrunner will do their best to protect their lands and the realm. And finally, the farstriders will help you from their two holdings, one in eversong woods and one int he burntlands. You must use your armies to protect this special features as long as posible, specially the 3 crystals that will take down Bandinoriel shield and the Sunwell; and, if you are able to it, enter Zul Aman and destroy their altars to end their threat once for all. Units You have a nice army, with several infantry troops, ranged units, a proper siege and a good bunch of casters or semicaster units to buff your units. If used properly you have tools to defeat a bigger and stronger enemy. You only have 1 flaw: your complete lack of cavalry, your army is balanced and designed to be strong with sinergies, but you have poor movility, so if the trolls do several coordinated attacks at different locations, their guerrilla warfare might end destroying your special points one by one. To counter this you have a really useful tool: elven rangers, this units lead by sylvanas will allow you to scout the woodlands, and know where the trolls are and where they will strike. Using this info wisely you can ambush them, or destroy their armies if they split too much, or even invade Zul Aman while they are assaulting your villages. Finally your elite is Sunstrider Archmage, a powerful mage-priest unit that will support your units and destroy your enemies, specially the risen undeads if they ever dare to enter your woodlands. Heroes Your main hero is Anasterian Sunstrider, High King of Quel'thalas (center), he is a powerful mage and warrior that will fight fiercely anyone who might date to invade your kingdom. But he is unrevivable. You also start with Sylvanas Windrunner (right), ranger general of Silvermoon, a great archer and commander, she is unrevivable. Finally, your third hero is Lorthemar Theron, leader of the Farstriders, he is your only revivable starting hero, a fierce mele warrior with some magic tricks. If Silvermoon falls to the enemy and Anasterian dies, Kael'thas, prince of Quel'thalas, will leave the ruling council of Six of Dalaran to come to help his own people, renaming them as blood elves, Kael is revivable. Finally, if Sylvanas is killed, you can call Halduron Brightwing if you want to, he is revivable too. Events Bandinoriel protects Silvermoon from an attack. It is guarded by 3 crystals, if you lose them all, the shield will fall. Sunwell boosts your elven units, if you lose it, your army will become weaker and might lose agaisnt your enemies. You start with 4 Elven Spires of the 4 noble families of Quel'thalas, they will help you to keep the land, but are destroyable. You start with 2 Elven Lodges of the farstriders, they will help you to keep the land, but are destroyable. If Silvermoon falls and Anasterian dies, you can become Blood Elves, just a name swap to call Kael as hero. In future patches Blood Elves will be able to ask Thrall to join the horde (maybe i keep Blood Elve name just for Horde elves to be easier to track their alleigance for non alliance members).
