A sorceress is the female version of a sorcerer.
As with the elven priests, the elven sorceresses who remained in Lordaeron paid little heed to their race’s departure from the Alliance. These female magic users, serving as agents to the Kirin Tor of Dalaran, use their arcane powers to aid the Alliance in times of peril.
These female magi, sent by the magocrats of Dalaran to watch over the volatile battle magi, use their arcane powers to aid the Alliance forces whenever Humanity is imperiled. Although their powers are not often used directly in combat, the sorceresses are able to aid the Alliance warriors with a wide array of specialized conjurings and magical effects.
Note that both high elf and blood elves sorceress have the symbol of Dalaran on their cloaks.
High elven sorceressesEdit
The High elven Sorceress aided Arthas Menethil and Jaina Proudmoore when they were investigating the Cult of the Damned and fought the invading Undead. Several sorceresses accompanied Arthas when he travelled to Northrend to hunt the Dreadlord Mal'Ganis that was believed to be the leader of the Undead Scourge's invasion into Lordaeron. After Arthas became the first of the Lich King's Death Knights and invaded Quel'Thalas, many high elf sorceresses tried to fend off Arthas as he attacked their capital of Silvermoon.
Several Sorceresses were encountered by Thrall and the Orcish Horde in Kalimdor, part of Jaina's forces. They were also encountered by the Night Elves and their leaders Tyrande Whisperwind and Malfurion Stormrage, and after the Alliance, Horde and Night Elves made a desperate alliance to defend the World Tree, they fought against the forces of the Undead Scourge and Burning Legion during the battle of Mount Hyjal.
It is a caster unit and produced at the arcane sanctum.
Blood elf sorceressesEdit
The blood elves also had sorceresses in The Frozen Throne expansion in Warcraft III, under the command of Kael'thas. Their damage and armor type are different than the high elf sorceresses in Warcraft III. ( )
When Tyrande Whisperwind and Maiev Shadowsong briefly joined forces with Kael'thas in the Plaguelands, several sorceresses were seen under Keal'thas' command. They were also present throughout the Human campaign, and seen fighting Arthas and the Undead forces along with the rest of the blood elf forces attacking Icecrown during the Undead campaign.
It is produced at the Blood Elf Arcane Sanctum.
