The setting of the next-gen, flight heavy MMO ALfheim Online (ALO), the land of fairies. Alfheim is divided into nine regions, each of which contains the capital city of one of the nine fairy races, with their own unique look and culture.

The nine fairy races are: the sylphs of wind, with quick flight speed and excellent hearing; the salamanders of fire, weapon masters with deadly attacks; the undines of water, skilled at healing magic and aquatic activity; the gnomes of earth, hardy miners with good stamina; the catlike cait siths, nimble animal-tamers; the shadowy spriggans, masters of illusion and treasure hunting; the musical pookas, talented singers and musicians, all; the tinkering leprechauns, skilled at crafting and smithing; and the imps of darkness, who hold domain over the caves with their night vision.

Looming over the center of the map is the final destination of all the players: the titanic World Tree. At its foot rests Alne, the largest city in Alfheim.

A legendary city in the sky is said to rest atop the World Tree, and the first race to successfully reach it and have an audience with Oberon, King of the Fairies, will be reincarnated as higher beings called alfs.

As true fairies, alfs will not be subject to the game's flight limits on altitiude and time, making them the true rulers of the sky.
