Rune Shield Tower



The east of the Katalam Underground is the region with the highest Id content. The ancient Rune tribe built the shield tower to protect this area from attacks. The Rune Shield Tower contains the Rune tribe’s Shield Generators, which the shield obtains its energy from. But ever since the Beritra Army’s 43rd Destruction Squad destroyed part of the device during their invasion, Daevas have had to manually provide the Shield Generator with energy to keep the shield intact. The 43rd Destruction Squad is now trying to use the fact that the Daevas can’t use the Idium and Rune technology of the Shield Tower due to the weakened shield, to destroy the Shield.

The Elyos/Asmodians are trying to keep the Shield Generators intact, as the whole Katalam Underground could be in grave danger if the Rune Shield Tower is destroyed. The ancient Rune technology is integrated in the tower, which would then also disappear. This is why they are always sending Daevas to the Shield Tower to, on the one hand, keep the generator active and on the other, defend the Shield Tower from invasions by the 43rd Destruction Squad.

Steel Wall Bastion Battlefield



Commander Pashid conquered the Steel Wall Bastion which is an important entrance in Katalam. However, the Pashid Legion had suffered great damage in the battle at the Steel Wall Bastion and was weakened by it. The Elyos/Asmodians were aware of this, which is why they sent their troops to the Steel Wall Bastion.

The Elyos/Asmodians have begun fighting against the Balaur to seize the base at the Steel Wall Bastion. However, as both factions have the Steel Wall Bastion as a target, a battle between the Elyos and Asmodians is starting now as well. That’s why it is called the Steel Wall Bastion Battlefield, as this is the place where Asmodians, Elyos and Balaur fight each other, all with the same aim of conquering this area.

Upper Abyss



Balaur Lord Beritra wanted to expand his territory after seizing Katalam, by also trying to seize Reshanta. The Makarah Legion of Reshanta had been weakened by the long battle against the Elyos/Asmodians. Beritra knew this and secretly sent the Baranath Legion to Reshanta. The Baranath Legion showed the Makarah Legion the power and authority of Beritra and demanded that they submit themselves to the Beritra. The Makarah Legion had no other choice but to promise they would, as they knew they were weaker than Beritra. This meant that the battle fortress fell into Beritra’s hands.

The Elyos/Asmodians discovered this and planned to strengthen their armed forces in the fortress so that they could defend themselves against the Beritra army. Now it’s up to the Elyos/Asmodians to occupy artefact bases and best utilise the siege weapons to seize or defend a fortress. A tough fortress battle against powerful opponents is starting in the Abyss.
