ALfheim Online features nine different player races, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. Players are given the option to choose from these nine races when creating their avatars at the beginning of the game.
The goal of each race was to be the first to reach the top of the World Tree and to meet the Fairy King Oberon so as to be reborn as the higher species, the Alfs, giving them unlimited flight time. But after it was revealed at the end of the Fairy Dance arc that Alfs did not actually exist, this goal was abandoned and replaced with the new goal of clearing the newly incorporated New Aincrad, after Ymir introduced the «Floating Castle Aincrad» update to ALO.
