TERA PC - General Discussion: In this thread we pay our respects to Elleon and Jelena
... because according to the latest Twitch stream, when asked about these two characters' whereabouts, the reply was that they are apparently never coming back because the development team thought they were boring or something. Particularily Elleon since he was not fortunate enough to at least be a sexy femstanic I guess.

I just think it's sad to see classic Tera characters such as Elleon and Jelena be treated with such nonchalance. Especially since Jelena is essentially THE POSTER GIRL FOR THE GAME (it's her portrait that is firmly planted in the middle, most attention-grabbing spot of the cover of my physical copy of Tera, and if you google Tera you find tons of official pictures/posters featuring a femstanic that look exactly like her!), and Elleon has been so heavily involved in the game's story (especially pre-Stepstone Isle tutorial) that it would just a be an insult to try and sweep them both under the rug like the game has done evr since that one lvl 58 quest.

Yeah I know, "lol story consistence in a free mmorpg lololol", but still.
rest in peace

I'm a bit late to the party, so I don't even know who she is ;o

Regardless.

They'll never truly be forgotten. Both of them were important in my opinion. o:)
I'm kind of sad they never continued their story-line, I was always curious as to what happened to them. They're just leaving a lot of plots blank, which I think is a tad disappointing, I mean... those 2 were like the most important characters and their story just ends in such an abrupt, weird way. Meh....

Halrath, can you answer the most important question in all of TERA: Where in the world is Seravy the Unicorn?

Can I get the item to catch him again? :sunglasses:
Tera Korean betas started in 2009 iirc with level 30 cap, this was the same for NA.
The Argons story was introduced late, but it was always planned to be like this, but in the Wonderholme patch they changed everything idk why. We had the Nightforge PvE/PvP skins (blue and red), but there was another golden skin that looks like the "clown nightforge", I think BHS had others plans for Baldera Wonderholme and Timescape because theose 2 skin sets:
Forgotten Gods set
eGb29Qq.jpg
Vallona's Gamble Set
CpamhFI.jpg
I don't know from where these names came from, but Yana actually had an skin set and I don't know why it wasn't used as Lucid skin... Anyway, the Forgotten Gods skin set makes me believe even more that Baldera was supposed to be an ancient place at where we could find more answers of Argons and others things, unfortunately whatever where the BHS plans for Baldera we will never know about it.

Personally I don't like the FoA history line cause is very generic and boring for me, and it doesn't close the previous holes in the history. At least I hope someday we can have Elleon twins swords skins, it looks so cool.

These images are from Teratoday (r.i.p) and have been there since 2013(?) idk.
Even if they don't want to bring Elleon and Jelena back, the least they could do is make a closure.
I don't mind if the story goes that Elleon retired and Jelena went back pole dancing in Castanica.
But I do mind about Elleon having a title of 'Hero of the Federation'.

I defeated the Argon queen, I kicked both Darkan and Dakuryon in the [filtered], I foiled every Lakan's attempt to resurrect..
When can I be the Hero of the Federation?
:cry:
Here's the real question:

Who is Manahan?????

:cry:

Pole dancing in Castanica! I'd actually pay to see that. I'd send my male elf with lots of fashion coupons

And I agree about the title. I mean he did a lot (especially on the old IoD) but how many times did I have to save his elven bottom? And the last received title was the Guardian of Velika. I wouldn't mind being promoted to at least a Captain.

As for Elleon, why not letting him reunite with his brother? If he's still on the IoD Elleon could go there too. Not the best place to retire but still. And Jelena could fall for the younger hotter Kubel brother ;) Then Elleon would go back to Velika, get a house, sit on a porch, sip hot cocoa and be "that weird old guy" kids talk about

The Argon storylines was the one I was invested in before Zolyn and Paesyn came about. I loved the Argon areas - especially Granarkus - and when everything ended with Manaya dying, going, I've failed you Manahan I was just like ????? Where is my expansion?? When do I fight Manahan thanks???

Tera lore is actually quite interesting. Wish it didn't have so many plotholes.

I believe Elleon is fatally wounded after Killian's death, not killed. He goes back to Habere with Jelena, who says he's barely alive or something like that. We don't really know what happened to him, as he's not mentioned with the Queen storyline.

Thanks for this! Sometimes the little things make the characters memorable.
So sad, they were really cool in my opinion, Elleon was edgy in a likeable sort of way (like Reaper from Overwatch) and Jelena was a very okay character too, even if she didn´t have many cool quotes or anything like that.

Either way, I still love the lore of this game, I just think it has so much missed potential in it.
TERA PC - General Discussion#21 Zoknahal04/23/2017, 03:04 AM
Is time for some Lore. At the start of your quest to defeat Killian in Labyrinth of Terror, Elleon is critically injured, to the point that Jelena has to drag him away from that place. Once you complete all your objectives, Jelena informs you that Elleon is alive, but hanging from a thread. She also speaks about both of them being out of commission until Elleon recovers, cause Jelena decide to stay by his side to nurse him back to health.

That was the last we heard about the duo. It is unfortunate that the (probably) main NPC of the story will not be seeing a comeback in the future. Shows how bad BHS is at story making. We jumped from a well written story and well chained events, to jumping from one end to the other. Honestly i would love of BHS to fix the chain of events in the story, there are way too many holes and open ends.
eleon was killed for killian rite ?

No, Jelena took him back to Habere and later tells you he is in guarded condition.
TERA PC - General Discussion#23 Mesogog04/23/2017, 06:13 AM
What if...Elleon actually died from his injuries? O.o
And Jelena ended her own life in grief? :open_mouth:

He's still around. You speak to him when you're on the Island of Dawn during the investigation quest.

Since we have a Zolyn's Portrait, can we get a Elleon one too? He's such a bishie, and it's a waste to forget that beautiful face! <3
TERA PC - General Discussion#32 Esteri05/03/2017, 03:20 AM
Can we bribe the development team? Lol

I am kidding but, pretty sad to see such a popular duo being left behind. We need closure on the Elf dork and his fiery friend. Elleon's dialogue is probably the most memorable and I love to see how he interacts with the story. He has a good balance of seriousness and terrible jokes. As for Jelena... Her fire mixes with his ice nicely. Pretty sure they are together.

Edit: Did not see post date. Oops.
Legit, if they need a writer for some lore, I got all day and will work for cute dresses and dank memes... and $10 a day for food. I wanted to see so much more with Leander, Elleon, Jelena, Fraya, etc. ;w;

For a person to be fatally wounded requires them to die from it. That's what the phrase means, a wound so harmful it leads to fatality. From what i recall he was severely wounded, but not fatally,

I will always remember Elleon, the non lootbox elleon weapon for Slayer looks exactly like his weapon. I will carry it always.

Here's the real question:

Who is Manahan?????

I can try to provide some form of an answer. In 2013, I posted this on Tera's old forums because I was very intrigued by the Argon War story and the gap at the end of it.

"This excerpt is taken from the lore section on Tera's website:
"The first argon invasion took the world by surprise. Otherworldly and powerful, the motives behind the argon attack remain unclear. Destroying or reshaping everything in their path, they aren't interested in resources, vengeance, or any other tangible motive. Their cold, inexorable advance was stopped only at great cost and by unifying the races of the world.

Though the world endures other troubles, a wary eye is kept on the argons as they reshape Northern Shara into a nightmarish, alien landscape. Small units of argons have been seen far south of their “borders,” and some within the federation believe the argons are positioning themselves for a final, fatal strike, while the allied races are distracted by internal and external conflicts."

From this excerpt, the lore about the Argon Invasion is somewhat sudden and ambiguous and the lore section even admits that the motives of the Argons are unclear and what fuels their bloodthirsty quest for domination. Kaia, the goddess of war, admits in one of her cutscenes that the Argons have no soul apparently and are controlled by some puppet.



We learn through story quests, that Shandra Manaya is the entity controlling the Argons and that her death solidifies an end to the Argon invasion.

But the purpose of this thread is to analyze the motives of the Argons and why the Argon Invasion has not stopped.



If you look at this video which portrays the death of Shandra Manaya it may seem like a happy ending but at the end, Shandra Manaya's final words are "For Manahan." While questing on my priest, I took the time to actually read the story quests which include the dialogue and background. While questing, I learned that Manahan was an incredibly powerful and dangerous entity and even challenged both the powers of Arun and Shara combined. As a result, Manahan was sealed away by Arun and Shara and the "Dream" resulted.

Shandra Manaya's final words indicate some connection to Manahan and during the story quest it is revealed that she wanted Sikander's Flame. Her motives for the powerful object were unknown although I think that Shandra Manaya wanted to resurrect her master, Manahan, and possibly bring about an end to the dream.



So in conclusion, there may be another Argon threat in the future of Tera. There is a whole region on the map that is undiscovered and who knows what plans await the mighty adventurers of Tera. What I do believe though, is that the Argon invasion did not end with Shandra Manaya's death as many had assumed but there may be an even greater threat on the horizon and his name is Manahan."

I always thought the Highwatch MSQ was a temporary story before the real Queen of the Argon was introduce because you can tell the Argon queen was taking commands from someone higher than she was

My favorite Ellion moment is when you deliver the fake spear to him, and he goes off on this villain rant about how he has been using you the whole time, before kind of losing it and chuckling, going 'sorry, always wanted to do that.'

That one is pretty funny! Let's face it, Elleon might be a fan of dad jokes.
Elleon and Jelena are some of the best characters. Closure would indeed be nice. Does anyone know why they removed so much content in the first place?

And I mean. Elleon's got some of the best quotes... like about meeting him later with two shovels and a bucket of paint remover. xD

I just freaking love the lore of this game. To have the holes all filled in would be truly amazing. Unlikely, but amazing nevertheless.
TERA PC - General Discussion#41 Vesporax05/04/2017, 10:50 AM
What ever happened to that Castanic female that helped you in the argon tower?
One of the things that frustrates me the most about this game are the plot holes. *grabby hands* I want to know what happens! Though, I have to say, the argon threat and the ambiguity surrounding it does give it more of a...."realistic" feel? How often do you really know the true motivation of the enemy? You stop them, often by killing them but more often than not, you never know or understand WHY they did things (meaning, in real life, finding out the reasons for something, why someone killed someone, started a war, stole something etc - these are not things that are often discovered in real life especially not if the "enemy" is dead). Finding out would be awesome, however. And I would love to see Elleon back. I never got to play the original IoD just hear about it from the person who got me into the game. I did play on the second version of it (after, from what I'm reading, Elleon's brother and other things were removed) and I was sad to come back one day and find it gone. I don't mind, games change and grow but if they need a lore writer, I volunteer *waves hands about* I volunteer!
So many memorable moments with Elleon and the first time I leveled a character to max, I hung on every word only to get frustrated with plot holes. Some of those were cleared up by reading this thread, however, so thanks to everyone! Most were not, though, just the ones that are now missing from the game and were actually there once upon a time.
TERA PC - General Discussion#43 nhat05/04/2017, 04:42 PM

TBH the originally IoD storyline was a bit messy and really have nothing to do with the main storyline once your get to Velika. I think the new starting area is a bit slower but the story connects more and showed a glimpse the main threat right off the bat

Does anyone notice that in CU area, u can meet with Zolyn and Paesyn at the dock? They are waiting for Elleon, apparently. Does CU happens before the expedition to the Northen Arun?

And whats the deal with Princess Syona? She mentioned about a fountain drying up. Is it her fountain dried up, she needs to get moist back? What the heck? I didnt hear ain't nothing about special fountain back in Pora Elinu. I know about Lake of Tears, but no fountain. Which fountain is she referring to?

So many questions..
:scream:
Yeah, so much waiting for chapter 2 in the time travel series...
TERA PC - General Discussion#46 Tiana05/04/2017, 08:03 PM
Honestly, someone in the writers team needs to work another ebook.
We get some good Lore here and there, and it sucks some of it is restricted.

Completely ditching two VERY important characters in the game is terrible. We all deserve answers.
> @Zosmathyn said:

Im sorry if i resurrect an old threat but manahan was the first son of arun and shara, he was so curious that she tried to find out what was outside the dimension and almost destroyed arborea, arun and shara sealed him to stop it, he was just a innocent "child" but he created a "thing" aka manaya with the azure stone that gods used to make life, beflre he got sealed with it. Also baldera was the garden or Balder in Arun, bastion is his garden in Shara, the lore says that Arcdevas invaded baldera before the storm barrier was placed. All castanics refugees in the world escaped to kanstria and also castanica, they made a barrier around the city too with a mineral called durignite. My source is the lore and some old threats in very old forums.
That's cool to know, but I'm going to lock this old thread for now. If people would like to discuss this again, please feel free to create a new thread. :)
