Elaaden Planet Map for Mass Effect Andromeda
Elaaden Planet Map for Mass Effect Andromeda

Elaaden is the scorching desert moon of a gas giant Identified on Initiative charts as Habitat 2. Eaaden Was considered a "golden world" despite its harsh conditions, because of the moon's vast mineral wealth. Tidal gravitational effects cause plumes of Sodium silicate to erupt from Elaaden's Core, depositing unusually pure Silicon Sand across the Surface-invaluable for manufacturing high-performance computer hardware.

Orbital Surveys show that contrary to projections, Elaaden is almost devoid of water vapor, making long term settlement or mining efforts unlikely. Those who live on Elaaden face a constant struggle for survival. Able to thrive in environments that would kill most organic species in days, the krogan who departed the Nexus have established a Colony on Elaaden.

You arrived at Elaaden to do Priority Ops Elaaden: A New World.

This is the last big planet on which you will put Outpost. You should have here the following tasks to do or to finish: The Little things That Matter, Ryder Family Secrets, Turian Ark: Lost But Not Forgotten, Liam Kosta: Outpost Worlds, Nakmor Drack: A Future for Our People, Forgotten History, Contagion, Task: An Exile Raid, Task: Hitting Rock For Science, Task: Remnant Data Cores.

Take Drack with you on your trip to Elaaden.

Elaaden has a very high temperature. To avoid burns you have to hide in any shade.
