The Rings of Power – How Long Do Elves & Dwarves Live?

Elves are an immortal race in The Rings of Power, meaning they do not age as quickly as humans and do not die of old age like their mortal counterparts. Instead, elves can potentially live forever. Pretty cool, huh?

Here’s the rub, though. An elf can be killed in combat if they’re mortally wounded. In other words, it’s possible for elves to die, but if they steer clear of combat and keep themselves out of harm’s way, elves can potentially live in perpetuity.

Dwarves, on the other hand, are much like humans in that they’re mortal beings. This means that they do age and have a finite existence. Traditionally, dwarves live until they’re around 250-years-old. Some dwarves have been know to live to be 300-years-old, but it’s quite rare for this to happen.

So, that about wraps it up for today. We hope this helped to clue you in on how long elves and dwarves live in The Rings of Power.
