Any additional info about island ruins (twist in time) boss Braha?
Before quest battle we get info that something terrible is inside... After defeating Muir says something like: "How can 2 braha coexists in one time?"
Have I missed something?
About regina we know that she is queen of elfs, glass is guardian of goddess, Lugh is hero of the past. So Braha is just moster to fit in? Or some kind of god?

    They're Giants... not like Ogre Giants (Titan), but actual Giants. Ones that can crush Humans and Fomorians with little to no effort.

    From Akadus's perspective, Reality is becoming distorted, which means that entities from the past and present co-exist with each other. Note that Ben Chenner used to be a mountain volcanic in nature, but it has since become a dormant, habitable paradise for the elves. This can explain how Both Ancient Braha and Braha are able to co-exist with each other. The elves were also peaceful until something Corrupted them, causing the events of season 3 to occur.

    There's also more mythological connections with the 3 seasons as one further reads into Celtic mythology.

    Page not found :/ .... So giants nothing more? Like what are they doing there? What were they doing before why are we even fighting them (just because we entered the room and woke them up?) why they are in a strange hole? Did elfs captured them to guard entrance to erin/Lugh ?

    Not much is really known about Braha outside of the S3E1Ch2 arc, I have to be honest about that.

    I'll throw in direct links since their URL paths are broken for some reason.

    Muir's line implies that Braha could be one of a kind; it may not belong to any particular species. And due to limited knowledge, calling Braha a "giant" would be like calling Abomination a "bugman" or Eochaid a dog/cat. Personally, I prefer calling Braha a colossus though.

    IIRC ben chenner was volcanic in nature because Elchulus was sealed there (according to Muir i believe). Its not volcanic anymore since Elchulus is unsealed at the end of s1, which causes Erinn (paradise) to approach and start merging with the mortal world, which causes reality to distort.

    Theres a plot hole though, Ben Chenner is supposed to be Annwyn (its outright stated as such in s3) but Annwyn was still volcanic in s2, which occurs after Elchulus is unsealed at the end of s1.

    Then again, everything after the original s1 storyline is largely a clusterfuck story wise. The s2 storyline trolls players into thinking they are after the destiny stone or some kind of artifact that caused the lakoria/kraken disturbances and then it turns into yet another reset, just with different characters.

    That's not a plot hole; Season 2 is a split timeline from Season 1. Annwyn being volcanic is because Elchulus was still sealed until the final episode. In the epilogue of Season 2, Kean will ask you what you plan on doing, and your response will indicate whether you are the mercenary who became a soldier (S1), or the mercenary who became a Coffer Chaser (S2).

    I thought they retconned the split timeline thing, and simply made s2 take place after s1 except that key events repeat (with some variation)? I believe Lugh or someone in s3 even states that "everything repeats".

    I remember that at s2 release (where you had 8-29 level brackets), you had to go back to colhen many times as s2 was supposed to take place concurrently with s1, but im pretty sure that was changed when they did the progression revamp and made s1 shorter.

    IIRC, Kean simply askes whether you were from Colhen and whether you have friends/family here.

    The alternate timeline thing cannot be true because we know for a fact that the events of s1 occured and that even Brynn remembers them. We also know that s2 happened despite another reset, because Kean, Milo and Iset remember it. s2 cannot happen concurrently with s1 because certain events would have you in two places at once (in s1, you are with Keaghan when he walks into the Cathedral, in s2 you are with Kean and watching Keaghan walk into the cathedral). At the same time, it doesnt make sense for s2 to happen after s1 because certain scenes do not make sense after the s1 reset (Keaghan shouldn't exist at this point, yet he still has scenes in s2).

    At the end of s1, we know that Elchulus was unsealed, but for some reason, Erinn did not approach at that time (even though Elchulus being unsealed supposedly caused it in s3).

    It might help if the old announcement announcing the s1 revamp was still around somewhere...
