Magic of DesertWinds
Listed on the below some of the magic powers in the world of ElfQuest. Not all of these powers have surfaced in DesertWinds. Some have not appeared because there is no need of them in the desert world the elves are living in. Is WaterSeeking a form of WaterShaping? Probably, the ability of WaterShaping was not needed but finding water was very important to the survival of the tribe.

Other limits to certain powers are:
Sending: Has a range limit. Although, the better one is at it the further one can send or receive.
Levitation: Some elves can levitate objects, but not themselves. While others can float only themselves. A few can do both.
