So currently in the game we have only a few races in the overworld which are villagers, illagers, pillagers, golems and us the players but how about a new race called the elves, this elves will not be like the usual smaller ones this ones will have player size and pretty similar to us players but with the difference of having pointy ears (don’t make them excessively large), blue and green eyes, large hair and the color variants for the hair will be blond, brown and red/orange, and finally a pale white peach skin color, those are the characteristics that will differentiate the elves from the players and the elves won’t have the arms together like the villagers they will have it like us and of course they won’t have a big nose like the villagers either they will be like us but with the differences I mentioned before, there will be male and female elves as well this elves will be a passive race having a nice relationship with us and they will trade with you unique elf items but only a few elves have the ability of trading here is an example only 1 elf out of 10 will be able to trade but this traders will only offer you elf weapons and armor as well as sometimes food, xpbottles and enchanted books with special elf enchantments but that’s all they will trade with you and it will be expensive after all the trading function already belongs to the villagers, I’ll explain the reason of this later on but for now the next thing for them will be that they will have elf warriors and this warriors will be a neutral mob if you attack him at least 10 times all elves will hate you and attack you they will be there to defend the elves, the elf villages and the elven kingdoms (the 10 time hit thing it’s because they may accidentally hit an elf if there is lag so 10 times so he has the chance to still be friends with them) there will also only be 3 elven kingdoms in your on your Minecraft world the generation will be similar to the fortresses of the end portal and each kingdom will have unique armor design for their warriors, one kingdom will appear in a roof forest biome, the second in a snow biome and the last one will be next to a ocean (to be more specific, on a beach), the kingdoms will have an elf lord who will be strong in battle and always surrounded by a elite of elven warriors, the villages will have a chief who will go out and defend the village as while riding an a elk, all villages and kingdoms will have sword warriors and spear man as well as archers to guard the walls that the villages and kingdoms will have to defend themselves but they will need our help as well sometimes, they will also be way more skillful with the bow than the sword they will as well sometimes mount horses and have an artificial intelligence complex enough for them to be disciplined and make strategies in battle, one example a shield wall formation when enemies are charging towards them and having archers behind the shield wall shooting arrows at the enemies, that’s just one example, the elves will also be immune to zombies, this means that there will not be a zombie variant for the elves.
There will also be elf patrols roaming around the world like the illager patrols but this ones will be formed by 8-12 elves and one elf captain mounted on a horse and maybe other two elves can be mounted on horses too, this patrols will not appear in deserts, savanna and mesa biomes but that’s it, as concern for the rest of the biomes they will be able to appear in all of them, and so to make the world feel more natural and alive with them the elf patrols will randomly come across some illager patrols and they will start fighting each other, you can intervene in this little battle event or simple not this won’t affect the elves that much since they will be strong fighters and they will have a fair chance to win anyways as long as there are no ravagers in that patrol, and lastly to end the patrol section there will be a chance of you finding an elf patrol passing by a village and find them trading with the villagers, the elves will have the ability to dismount their horses when they are not fighting but if you have the bad omen effect and a raid starts or it’s night time and enemies arrive to the village the elves that have horses will mount them and prepare for battle, in the raids they will stay with you to help you defend the village but the new hostile mob the orcs will join the raids (I’ll talk about him next) in order to make things more interesting and dangerous, once the raid is over if any elf survived they will go on their way back to their village or kingdom even if the captain dies the elves will stay on your side until the raid ends or they die in battle but if you don’t start a raid in a village and there are elves there they will stick around that village for about 5 days in Minecraft in a little base camp with wool tents in the outskirts of the village and then they will leave the village leaving their tents behind mounting their horses and going on their way, as you saw the elves will be balanced when they come and help, the only villages we have to take care of will be the desert and savanna ones when it comes to defending them this is quite balanced, the elves will help us but not every time and so to clear out this is how the relationship of the elves and villagers will work elves will defend them and the villagers will trade them everything they need like their relationship with us, the relationship that we will have with the elves will be the enemy of my enemy is my friend wha I mean is that they fight in our side because they hate all hostile mobs and they are willing to fight with us to defend their people and they will defend the villagers only because of what they can provide to them, but the main reason is that they want peace and prosperity but they can’t have it with the evil beings and like this we would gain new allies to our cause.
Now to talk about the enemies of the elves and new hostile mobs for the overworld, their names will be orcs and trolls, orcs will spawn in your world naturally in day and in night, they will be always armored and will bring with them bows, swords and spears to fight with against us, they will also join the illager patrols, as for the troll, they will only appear on the night as for they will become stone during the day, we will also be able to find them in caves sleeping at day, they will only wake up in the night or if we wake them up, trolls some times will be found with trolls roaming around and they will also wield a big log with iron spikes coming out of it, now going back to the orcs they will go and try to kill all elves but they will also go with a few pillagers and ravagers since they work together and they will also join on the raids as well and there will be new special raids for the elf villages and kingdoms this will be like the normal raids except 20% more harder and this time trolls will join the raids, orcs and pillagers/illagers will have signed their alliance and be together on their misión to kill us, the villagers, golems, elves and ents (I’ll talk about them at the end of the post), the orcs will also have their own area as well as the elves have their kingdoms and villages and the villagers have villages the orcs will have base camps, this base camps will consist on a series of at least 23 tents, 5 watch towers, 2 armories and one prison where they will have villagers and elf citizens captured, the area of this camps will be completely burned and decayed and not only orcs will be there but as well as a few pillagers and ravagers, but there will be another 2 events happening in this base camps of orcs, the first will consist you seeing a good amount of orcs, pillagers, ravagers and pillagers riding ravagers marching out to a random place like if they where going to attack one of the kingdoms and second one will be on seeing how a not so big army of elves of one of the kingdoms attacking the camp having the mission to free the prisoners from the orcs, this events are completely random and you can witness them yourself staying in that area for some time or simply you are just walking by casually and you find an orc base that is being attacked by the elves and we can chose to intervine in any of the events or no after all this events are to make the world feel even more alive and I repeat the elves will always have a nice chance of winning themselves it all depends on what type of kingdom attacks and how many enemies there are, for all of this there will also be new horn sounds an elf horn sound will be able to be heard when the elves attack the orcs base camps, when they find a illager patrol and attack it and when they defend their kingdom/village, and the orc horn sound will be heard when they attack the elven villages/kingdoms and when they use it as alarm when elves are attacking them, one last thing about the orcs, if you put their armor on they will see you as one of them since they will be dumb but if you attack one they will recognize you and attack you but you won’t be able to fool the rest of the hostile mobs only the orcs and trolls.
Now for the elks, they will spawn in forests and cold biomes and you will be able to ride them but only if you feed them apples and use an special elf saddle this is another thing that you will find the villages and kingdoms, the elks will also have the ability on taking down any one they charge against they will do 3 hearts of damage with no armor on in easy and normal and 5 hearts on hard they will also use their antlers in battle while they are being mounted by an elf and even by us but with us it will take down half of our xp bar, elks in battle are not invencible they can be take down by pillagers or any orc archer they will have 10 hearts and the main difference between them and the horses is that elks are way more difficult to tame and they are 20% less faster than horses, another functionality for the elves is that if you gain the elves trust you will be able to recruit 2-4 elves (depends on how much you have helped the village) to help you on your adventures and defend your home one archer and three sword warriors, the most archers you can bring with you are one the rest can be with swords spears or knives, you can also chose to bring only one elf with you if you want, this elves/elf will bring an elk with them but this elk will be exclusively for them to mount it, so for you to tell your elf companions what to do there will be a new command called /commandelf and they will do anything you order them here will be the /commandelf attack, defend, stay and the special ones will be “homebase” with this the elves will consider the area you used the command as their new home, “retreat” with this the elves will o running back to the are you told them to consider as their home and lastly “ride” and “dismount” with this you will be able to tell the elves when to ride or dismount the elk they brought and they will anything you ask them to do while riding the elk until you tell them to dismount the elk only two elves will ride one elk and if there are no other elks for the others you can give them one horse to ride or even ask them to ride with you in your horse/donkey/mule/elk, this are some command ideas for our tell your elf friends what to do I’m sure mojang can add even more but the things elves will never do are build, mine, craft, fish, plant or grow crops, explore without you while you stay home, send them into a structure and loot it for you or them to a dimension without you they won’t do that those are our task they are only there to help you fight evil and travel with you not to do all the job themselves.
So as concern for the new weapons, armor, items, blocks and a few behavior parts, the elves and orcs will use brand new different weapons and armors such as elvish swords, elvish bows, spears and knives yup a lot of new weapons and you will not be able to craft them in a regular crafting table, except the spears and knives since there will be human variants for this weapons for you to craft, the elvish ones are the ones you will not be able to craft only in a special elvish crafting table only obtainable in the villages and kingdoms and you will also find them already crafted on the chests of the villages and kingdoms and in the trader elves never in dungeons or temples, the crafting recipe will consist of a new ore called elvish steel, you can find this new metal in the elf mines of the kingdoms but only there since this is a exclusive material for the elves, the armor for the villages will be made from leather and leaves and their weapons made from iron, the armor of the kingdoms will have different designs for the helmets, the weakest kingdom their armor will be made from iron and gold, the second kingdom their armor will be made from iron, gold and elvish steel and finally for the strongest kingdom their armor will be made from iron, elvish steel and diamonds, all the weapons of the kingdoms will be made from elvish steel and the villages weapons will be made from iron and all their bows will be same crafted by one piece of elvish steel, two gold pieces and 3 strings, as for the orcs their armors and weapons will be way weaker than the elf ones but they will be more numerous than the elves and their armor and weapons will be finded in chests of any place and in the armor stands and chests of their bases but the places that they won’t be will be the villages, elf villages and kingdoms, they will also drop them as loot as well and they won’t have a crafting recipe ever, the armor of every elf kingdom will be unique they will also be distinguished by the best defense and the best equipment to the least defended and least equipped as I said before, but their skills will never change, and one last thing about the elf weapons is that the swords and knives will glow blue when there is any hostile mobs nearby but this won’t work with the ender dragon and the wither boss, and of course mojang don’t add all of the elf related stuff and the orc related stuff to the wandering trader trades please because the whole point of this it’s to explore for our selves and see the world so mojang no matter how expensive you want to put it so it becomes balanced just no because in already created worlds people will already have emeralds and they will just buy it so no please because I know new players will don’t want to explore the world and the game will became more easy but the majority of us don’t like that let them explore for themselves and survive and I know I sound very direct here and I know I got out of topic and I apologize for that but I had speak for us players on how we feel, so whatever you do please don’t add them as wandering trader trades please.
Now one last elf thing it’s well actually another creatures that are with us in this fight against the evil mobs they are called the ents (they don’t have to be called ents mojang can change the name if they want), the ents will be peaceful creatures that will share the same interest as the elves on having peace although they don’t like fighting, the ents are tree humanoids that are 2 blocks higher than the iron golems and they will have vines dropping down their arms and legs and they will also have leaves on their body and on the top of their head, the ents are stronger than the iron golems but they have less health they will be able to spawn in roof forests, flower forests and in the elf villages area roaming around and there will at least 3-6 ents in that area but not in the kingdoms after all the kingdoms already have a bunch of loot, an elf army, elite elven warriors and a strong elf lord mounted on a armored elk so the ents are not necessary needed to be there but the villages being weaker they need their help, there will be also at least 8-10 ents in the area you find and you will notice the area that the ents are on it will be more beautiful than the normal ones, the ents will show peaceful towards us but of course don’t hit them more than 5 time or else they will consider you as a threat to them, the ents won’t attack orcs, pillagers, illagers or any other hostile mob at first but they will attack them later on after all orcs, pillagers, ravagers, illagers and trolls won’t care about if the ents don’t want to fight they will consider them a enemy since they protect elves and because of that they will try to kill the ents no matter what and the ents will obviously fell endangered and defend themselves, fire enchants and fire attacks deal way more damage than other type of attack they can also some times be found wielding a tree stump, they will drop 2-3 saplings, 3 leaves blocks and 4 oak logs, they will serve kinda as the elf golems but way different we won’t be able to summon them, they will have their on spawn egg and of course they won’t have a big nose like iron golems, they will also be involved when there are raids going on a village they will go help their fellow elves in their fights because elves and ents will have a really good relationship of friends, ents will be a new race that will also help us and they are balanced as well they are stronger than iron golems but with way less durability/health and they will be weak to fire and be peaceful at first but if anyone attacks their own only then is when they will fight, that’s all for the ents and remember this is how I think ents can make it into the game without being op but I repeat mojang is free to change anything and even add more interesting things to this creatures (except their aspect).
To end this post this is why I think elves should be introduced, so you know that Minecraft is becoming more dangerous and now even more since the village and pillage update and the only friendly creatures that can help us fight the evil mobs of the world are the iron golems, snow golems, wolfs and even maybe the wandering trader llama but I believe we need a race that we can feel it’s there to help us and fight in our side and yes we have villagers but they are peaceful and they don’t like fights and they will never do, and you may wonder why elves and not other race simple elves represent the good of the world and the peace and beauty of nature and the magic feels that Minecraft gives us and it will feel even more fantasy with the ents and orcs, the elves are also warriors and friendly creatures that will help us to feel less alone in the vast world of Minecraft as well to have someone supporting us in the aspect of adventures and battles and not with special items and trades (only a few little part of them),as well the events I mentioned before that will happen randomly in the world will help the players push forward their adventure side and want to go out and explore the world to find all this new creatures of Minecraft and try get new and interesting items, and the thing that will make villagers so different from the elves is that villagers are a friendly race and trader one as well as an allie to you, but the elves will be as well a friendly race towards you but it will not be a trader one as you can see in first topic I touched in the beginning of the post in fact elves will be a warrior race and they will support you not only as being friends with you but in battle this will be the main difference between the two races and as well to balance things the elf villages will be 28% more rare than the villager ones and the kingdoms will be 50% more rare and as well I put as well orcs and trolls so we will have even more challenges in the overworld, so please if this ever gets to under review thing, mojang please consider it ok because it means people vote for it and they want to see it in the game and im sure you can think on a way to make them even more interesting than the ones I talk about in this post except the aspect keep that no matter what please.
Ok hope you like the post this alone can be a whole update it should be called The Elvish Update and I’m sorry if this post is a little bit long but i needed to say every single characteristic that the elves must have so if they get added they become an amazing addition into the game, ok good bye have a good day/night and if you like the post vote for it ok now bye.
