The Lakeside is a landmark in Xenoblade Chronicles. It is located in Makna Forest, on the lake's north shore below and west of the Agni Tablet. This is where Shulk encounters Telethia for the first time, and initially meets Alvis. Alvis teaches Shulk another Monado art, Monado Purge, which seals the aura of Telethia. There is a water Ether Deposit here that is visited in the story quest Mystery Girl Rescue.
