The Elf is a character you can choose to play as in Evil Minecraft. The Elf has decreased melee damage against entities, and lowered health, making him more vulnerable in fights. But if you crouch when playing as this character, you will hide, making mobs unable to see you and locate you.
Strategy when playing as The ElfEdit
A good strategy against enemy mobs is to sneak behind them, and get an extra hit against the mob, allowing you to gain an advantage.
