Salamanders originate from Gadan, located in the Desert Area in the south. Their territory is bordered by the Sylph territory to the northwest and the Imp territory to the northeast. The Salamanders claim Dragon Valley, one of the three pathways to the World Tree.
Due to their adjacent territories and the competition to gather scarce resources, the Salamanders and the Sylphs have a fierce rivalry to the point that the two races are currently at war. This rivalry further intensified when the Salamanders killed the first Sylph Lord, causing the Sylphs to lose a large amount of money.
At one point, the Salamanders were considered to be the strongest race. However, due to the alliance between the Sylphs and the Cait Siths, the balance of power returned to normal.
Flight: Like all the other races, Salamanders are capable of sprouting wings that allow them to fly. The vibration of their wings is known to produce a sound resembling a metallic roar. However, they are unable to fly underground and inside dungeons.
Fire Magic: Although they are capable of learning and using other types of Magic, Salamanders are the masters of Fire Magic, making them capable of casting fire attribute spells exclusive to their race.
Enhanced Strength: Salamanders are known to be the strongest players in ALfheim Online when it comes to physical strength. Therefore, the strongest Salamander warrior is also known to be the strongest player in the game.
