Talk:Eonar

"Lifebinder"? Isn't that Alextrasza? Regardless, I think "Patron of all Life" is more dramatic. --Ragestorm (talk · contr) 02:50, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Yes, but for Alexstrasza is only a title and it is like when mother give her daughter same name as her.

Speculation : Eonar = Earthmother =... Elune?

About speculation, it says that Eonar could be Earthmother... Could it be Elune at same time? Myths are used by those who don't know writing (does Taurens and Night Elves known to write before the Third War?) to "tell" History, and by the years it changes and becomes more "legendary". And for Elune, Nights-Elves may have seen their god as being similar to them. For Taurens they may have simply seen her as Earthmother by the time.

No? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Danquebec (talk · contr).

No. Elune is a deity (the only known true deity in Azeroth at that), while Eonar is a titan, who are explicitly not gods. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 18:58, October 8, 2009 (UTC)
But, it was a very long time that Night Elves did see any titans. By the time she could have become a god and take the appearance of a Night Elve for Night Elves. While for Tauren she became Earthmother. -- Danquebec (talk) 17:09, Octobre 9, 2009 (UTC-5)
It's not a matter of perception; Blizzard has been very clear on this point. Elune is a deity, and the titans are not deities. Eonar and Elune are separate individuals. Whether or not either are the being the tauren know as the Earthmother is certainly up for debate (and indeed seems likely), but we know that they are not the same being. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 21:23, October 9, 2009 (UTC)
Ok, thanks for the information. ;) -- Danquebec (talk) 22:08 October 9, 2009 (UTC-5)

Since a Titan is a world soul is a planet is a planet...

I think we shouldn't put too much thought into the "Earthmother" association to Eonar's very essence. All Titans are associated with "the Earth", by nature they are planets themselves and they seek to balance the five elements together as evidenced by Aggramar's tip to Draenor's elemental energies and population (Chronicle vol. II) or, on Azeroth, their ordering of the elements and creation of animal and vegetal (especially Eonar) wildlife that would come to thank the one Titan that favored their ancestral homelands and very existences. We are piecing together terms from tribal or primitive religions codified by individuals who didn't know much about their benefactors.--KIROCHI) 15:16, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
