Wyld elves tend to look down on their fellow elves. Since wood elves claim to be in tune with nature, the wyld elves see their tendency for permanent settlements as an insult against the nature they are supposedly praising. Wyld elves wander the wilds nomadically, never settling in any one spot for more than a few weeks before moving on. Their tribal lifestyle can cause problems to arise, and much infighting is present among the wyld elves, where one group will attack and attempt to submit another. Wyld elves are broader of build than the traditional elf, and has tanner skin, as well as golden hair and eyes.
Wyld elves decorate themselves with elaborate tattoos of various natural phenomena that has helped shape their life.
