How good are Elves?

I know they aren't good at combat, but I'm semi tempted to make an Elf since I like them a little more than Giants. Are they worth it when it comes to Archery and Magic? What else can they excel at?

    i play an elf, and i personally dont see much diffrence in them at high levels apart from the lack of strenth and inablity to use lances, then again i dont really use archery because you can miss at 100% x3

    Elves is pretty great endgame when your a Archer and Chainslash.

    Elves beat Humans in Archery by far and Only a bit of Little difference in ability in chainslash just that many prefer elves in chainslash because they have not only a bit of higher damage but as well as mobility in movement speed.

    IS Elves worth making? If your planning to not use Warrior/Knight like at all then yes, it is worth playing as an elf.

    Elves get higher str than humans when they are total level 20k+ while level 200 with Shine of Eweca or barely just behind humans in str.

    There is barely any difference in magic, Alchemy, Fighter, and music between humans and elves, because Endgame when you have all the skills ranked only gear will decide your endgame.

    Although if your a competitive type of player elves is a better version of humans when humans get a final hit nerf lowering DPS output to be JUST below elves magnum shot spam and chain impale.

    In the end giants are always the greatest race currently and will remain great for quite awhile with the upcoming 2 new skills for them that makes human final hit a laughing joke...

    Elves have a VERY VERY nice skill combination: Hydra with hide. That will let you solo the martial art tournament without dieing while you are still technically a beginner.

    The part about shine isn't true, because although elves still get more str from shine it has a secondary cap (Which is also why giants have less dex than elves)

    I think a lot of the flack elves get is exaggerated. They’re not exactly useless in melee, they just don’t have final hit. And their defence is roughly the same as humans.

    Their advantages make them surprisingly good for raids and bosses, and hide lets them cheat a large portion of content outright with certain skills (Like Hydra).

    Personally I’m just now swapping to an elf myself so I’m bias. I got tired of the lackluster Arrow Revolver on my human.

    Elves can be excellent in combat if one dedicates to making them so, of course they have their handicaps. But advantage is speed alone. And invisibility.
