Wizards of the Coast has given 4e anticipaters a holiday present in the form of the entire Elf entry from the Player’s Handbook. (And no, there’s nothing about them building toys.) There’s nothing terribly shocking to those of us who have been following all the 4e previews: there’s no penalty to stats anymore, just bonuses, Elves are more Wood Elfy (while the new Eladrin will be more High Elfy), no mention of a favored class, just some recommendations. We don’t have all the info needed to understand everything there- the Elven Accuracy power in particular- but it is an interesting look into THE FUTURE of Elfdom.
