Poeta is an island off the main continent of Elysea, and is the starting area for Elyos characters levels 1 through 10. The lush green land is filled with wildlife and plants, although recent activities from the local sapiens have been threatening the idyllic atmosphere.
In order to keep the wildlife in check, the villagers have hired a band of mercenaries led by Captain <Kalio>. The player is introduced as a human mercenary belonging to this unit and has to work with others in the region to restore order.
The region received a graphical overhaul during the 5.6 update, bringing its appearance up to modern day standards. In the 6.0 update it received additional graphical and environmental changes.
An instance variant of this map, Dark Poeta, served as the game's endgame instance during 1.0. This is an alternate future version of Poeta that shows what happens if the Balaur are successful in entering through the Abyss Gate found in the back of Timolia Mine.
