Ageless yes. immortal no.
All ageless means is that they don't age. When they die, they will look the same age as when they were created.
What a twist! Then again, is a year in Tera as long as one in our world?
I'm just glad us Popori don't go by dog years, like our non-awakened ancestors.
No, I think you read that the Elins, as a race, have been around for hundreds of years, but they as individuals do not live to be one hundred.
About their aging, I completely agree. The way I see it is that they are like flesh constructs. Seren puts a bit of Elinu's essence in a physical form, and then zaps it a bit with some energy to power it, and viola, you have a functioning Elin. Once that energy runs out, the body stops working and the essence (or the Elin's consciousness) goes back into nature (or the well of Elinu's essence) where it can be reused for another Elin some time in the future.
Of course that's just speculation.
Yeah the game says they don't live any longer than the other races. Same with Popori. They simply look young until their death.
Seriously... the further we go the more I down right detest how badly the english version is being handled. its watered down glitchy and just... arg. I wish I could read korean. id just leave en masse and frogster behind. im tired of being treated like a 12 year old idiot by a companies who clearly have no idea what they are doing.
