    ‘The Rings Of Power’: Ranking The Top 10 Elves In The Middle Earth

    In ‘Lord Of The Rings’, Elves played a major role in shaping the world in the First, Second and Third ages. The Elves are great warriors, they are also impeccable artists and leaders. The incarnation of evil – Morgoth and Sauron – were thwarted by the unnerving combativeness of the Elves, finally leaving Middle Earth only when the One Ring was destroyed. Now that ‘The Rings Of Power‘ is about to be released, let’s dig deep into the story of the Elves.

    The children of Eru Ilúvatar, the Elves, are the first to awaken in Middle Earth. This awakening happened thousands of years before Frodo’s journey in the ‘Lord Of The Rings’. Elves prefer outdoor activities that suck in all the warmth of the Earth rather than people like us in the Digital Age who train our fingers rapidly for an online combat match. Let us find out the top 10 most powerful Elves of Middle Earth.
