Tharsis is the starting town of Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan. It contains all of the main menus for when the player is not in a dungeon.


Tharsis is a very large and peaceful city that stands as the closest known settlement to Yggdrasil. The town's only real tourist attraction was their view of Yggdrasil, and few people were willing to go so far out of the way to see it. This, coupled with the remote location and the abundance of monsters that thrive in the mazes made Tharsis largely undesirable to visitors, and the town was on the brink of economic failure. One day; however, a Skyship crash landed near Tharsis, and after years of research the Wharf Master managed to create a new one. The Outland Count became very interested in who might have built the original Skyship, and so he set forth the challenge to reach Yggdrasil's trunk; promising fame and fortune to whomever does so.

With the Skyships making exploration easier many new explorers took to the skies. With the new resources being pulled from the Mazes and the sudden boom of travellers seeking fame, Tharsis' economy recovered in full force, and the town became the thriving city it is today.


Below are the wide variety of services that Tharsis has to offer an explorer. Each heading contains a description of what the place is for, as well as the a list of what options you will have there.
