Darkfall Wiki

Sand Giants, or the Avaris as they also are called, are actually giant elves. They have the same bodily proportions and figure as the Mirdain, but they can be up to 500 cm tall.

They tend to attack all who stray near their trails, camps and oases. They use wave-edged swords called Qadas.

They can be found in the most remote regions of Rubaiyat.

Possible Etymology[]

Avari are a race of Elves of Arda, created by J.R.R. Tolkien. They are mentioned in "The Silmarillion" and "Unfinished Tales". Avari are the Elves that did not go to Valar in Valinor and remained in Middle-Earth. It is likely that Aventurine have used the name in the development of Darkfall (especially considering the ties of MMORPG's to fantasy and J.R.R. Tolkien as one of the progenitors of modern fantasy genre).
