You are absolutely correct.
I overstated my case, for indeed I meant that "among humans, only the Heortlings experienced IFWW."

IFWW is actually the magical act that key members of these various races experienced at the end of the world.
Unity Battle was later, after the secret had been taught to many individuals. A chaos army threatened, and all the residents of Dragon Pass pulled together to defeat them at the Unity Battle.
