There is a settlement of gray elves and half-elves to the north, at the foot of the northern mountain range, near Morgan Vale and the court of Baron Sarphyre. Having lived there for many centuries peacefully, the elves now are threatened by the presence of a band of harpies in the volcano called Lloth's Peak. Rumor has it that the harpies fly out at night and kidnap the young. The foothills are located north of the intersection between the White Stone road and the Dwarven Trade route.

Most adventurers enter the area through Highways/Great Wall. There are two shops in the northern section; Aurora sells archery gear, while Deacon sells various pieces of armor that can also be found on the mobs in the area. Players can scale the mountainside to reach Lloth's Peak & Laboratory Of Chalmus near the center of the area. The Nyad is found a bit south from the center of the area, and far south of the area is a valley for lizardmen. See the map for details.
The Dirty Gnolls and Grumpy Gnolls that wander the area are aggressive, so be sure to scan for them while walking through the area. The area contains a fair collection of mobs that can be killed for exp. The mobs here are slightly more difficult since many of them are wearing gear. However, the gear they hold are generally pretty useful. If the mobs are proving to be too much, Deacon sells many pieces that the mobs also wear, though usually at a lower base.
The lizardmen at the southern end of the section are much tougher, and players should not enter it unless near the upper end of the area's level range. Also dangerous are the paths to Lloth's Peak and Valley of the Sun. The path to the Valley of the Sun has a large warning, while the path to Lloth's Peak mentions climbing the volcano. While the paths are not dangerous, these two connecting areas contain aggressive mobs that are much higher than the level range of the Elven Foothills.
This zone is home to the Nyad, who has a quest for adventurers willing to help her. See the Quests section for more details.
