Only Maiar?

Eonwe seems to be present in Beleriand at least.

So... that clears things up
The War of Wrath was such a battle that a whole continent got destroyed. So if he were the only Maiar present, then his power must be very destructive? Or does the Vanyar elves possess some powerful abilities also since they were the foot soldiers of the host of Valinor?
