They have nothing to do with the lore , no matter how hard turbine tried to make us think so.
In my eyes, it's just a flashy class , needed for every MMO : |
If we ever get new race/class combos it should be Elf captains.
Ow , and remove man lore-master too : * Makes no sense."
"There are three types of magic in Middle Earth(in the books and from Tolkien)
Music-Luthien Tinuviel and the Aniur who sang the whole thing to be in the first place.
Nature(the subtle shaping thereof)-Galadriel, Elrond, Gandalf, Cirdan the Shipwright.
Language-Celebrimbor the ring smith, Fegulund, any elf or dwarf who uses magic without music or nature(all of the dwarven magic items)
What are our three caster classes based off of the use of:Music, Nature, and Language.
Silly Bot.... all caster classes are based based on this... but just to clarify, Tolkein ripped most of his world from the Norse and surrounding mythos, and Runes are norse....
runo (cf. Old Norse run "a secret, magic sign, runic character,")
Runes are the secret language of magic.
And there you are wanting elf captains.... an elf cannot be a captain because an elf is a dwarf and a dwarf cannot be a captain. Whats that you say... elves are not dwarfs?
In his The Book of Lost Tales, Tolkien develops a theme that the diminutive fairy-like race of Elves had once been a great and mighty people, and that as Men took over the world, these Elves had "diminished" themselves. This theme was influenced especially by the god-like and human-sized Ljósálfar of Norse mythology.... and if you check you will find that Elf and dwarf are the same in norse myth, ergo if a dwarf cannot be a captain, neither can a dwarf! HAHA! (if you do not understand the last line, read the paragraph again)
Alfr is norse for elf, and as you notice is human character, the name would have been Ljosalfar which was my minstrel on another another server and not wanting to confuse myself, Alfr, a god-like human sized elf... go ahead, make a Elf of any class and call him a captain... do not reply on turbine to make all the fantasy for you, do some of it yourself.

There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans.
