Background[edit | edit source]
The Spriggans are a race that originate from the Ancient ruins area of the east. Their territory is bordered by the Leprechauns to the north-west and the Undines to the south. The capital of the Spriggan territory resembles a temple or ziggurat.
The Spriggans are known to have a darker skin tone compared to the other races and are typically associated with the color black. Similar to the other races, they are capable of flight and are known to be masters of Illusion and Treasure Hunting Magic. Due to this, many believe that the Spriggans are not a race fit to be used in combat thus, making them the most unpopular race in ALfheim Online.
The Spriggans are one of the five lightweight races, giving them the ability to use the Wall Run skill.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Flight: Like all other races, the Spriggans are capable of using their wings to fly. The vibration of their wings is known to make a sound resembling that of a wind instrument.
Illusion Magic: Though capable of using other types of magic, Spriggans are the masters of Illusion and initially start with Illusion-attribute spells. One such spell is «Metamorphosis», which usually turns the user into some weak monster without any status change.
Treasure Hunting Magic: Though capable of using other types of magic, Spriggans are known to be the masters of Treasure Hunting Magic, a magic that assists them in treasure hunting.
«Wall Run»: As one of the lightweight races, the Spriggans are capable of using the skill Wall Run, that, as the name suggests, allows them to temporarily run on walls. The normal limit is a distance of ten meters but those with an extremely high sprinting speed are known to be able to run for about thirty meters.
Multi-Weapon Wielding: The Spriggans are capable of wielding any type of weapon.
Night Vision: Spriggans are known to have night vision, allowing them to be able to see in near total darkness. They are also capable of casting a buff that gives others the same abilities.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The etymology of Spriggan comes from Cornish faery lore from Cornwall, England. Spriggans were depicted as grotesquely ugly, and were said to be found at old ruins and barrows guarding buried treasure and generally acting as fairy bodyguards. They were also said to be busy thieves. Though usually small, they had the ability to swell to enormous size (they were sometimes speculated to be the ghosts of the old giants).
- When Spriggan Kirito fights a large Salamander party in the Legrue Corridor, he uses an unnamed illusion spell that Yui suggests. With this spell, players would usually turn into weak monsters; however, due to Kirito's high stats transferred from Sword Art Online, he turns into a The Gleam Eyes-like monster instead.
