Forbidden Ruins

Mainbanner sorcerers2022.png

Another Pilgrimage is about to start and Zaphiel is already prepared to venture on this new journey. As a good friend, you are invited to take part again in this adventure and bring with him his most prominent apprentices. Zaphiel is very satisfied that the incident with the open crevasses was solved and no further incidents were reported in the Manor. Weirdly enough, rumors tell that some Sorcerers were seen leaving the Manor during the last months claiming to be starting their own pilgrimage. Among the reports, one fact draws attention, all the Sorcerers stated that they had to leave in search of the "Truth that lies Beneath".

The Pilgrimage starts similarly to the last one, all of the apprentices are very excited to explore the new cities and discover what sort of knowledge lies within the limits of the Pilgrim`s Manor. During one of the many stops, as the Pilgrims recover from the long trip, a cold gust of wind invades the camp. Along with it an overall sense of unease spreads among all of the sleeping apprentices. Suddenly, the Mentor Zaphiel leaves his tent with glimmering blue eyes calming all the students in their beds.

The next morning the caravan is informed that the next stop needs to be changed and Zaphiel leads the group towards the closest mountain range. As the group climbs towards the peak, they start to hear murmurs in an ancient language. Zaphiel tells the group to halt and passes the leadership to Melissa. He climbs alone to the top of the hills only to be surprised by an unexpected sight, a village was built in the middle of the forest and some of his old friends from the Manor are camping there. As he investigates, he understands where the power he felt is coming from. A huge crevasse lies open in the middle of the camp and above, floating mid-air, the ruins of an ancient castle shine in an eerie blue light. Confused and surprised he returns to the group and decides to move on with the pilgrimage.

In his mind, many unsettling questions arise. How could he not feel that crevasse? What is keeping it open? Where does that energy come from? How can he rescue his old friends without putting all of the apprentices in peril?

For now, the priority is to take the apprentices to a safe place. Then discuss with Melissa and Tandriel the reasons behind all these events.


Zaphiel is the Mentor that helped the apprentice sorcerers on the previous pilgrimage journey. In this year's pilgrimage, he returns to help the newly appointed Pilgrims on the return journey. Join him, once again, on his Pilgrimage throughout the Event and, as always, grab some of the many prizes along the way!

FR Leagues Window.png

There are five different Leagues you can reach by opening the Beacons of Power: Hobby, Iron, Bronze, Silver and Gold League. Each League is limited to a number of players with the required amount of points for that League. If a league is already full, you will move to the next League down but remember, the positions on the Leagues are recalculated every hour so do not give up hope and keep progressing on the event map to be able to progress in the Leagues also!

  • Hobby - All Players
  • Iron - Top 50%
  • Bronze - Top 20%
  • Silver - Top 5%
  • Gold - Top 1%

For the Hobby League, you only need to start playing the event, as for the rest of the Leagues you need to open Beacons of Power in order to progress through the Leagues. Each Beacon of Power has a different amount of points that will allow you to progress through the leagues, you can see how many points will be added to your progress directly on the Beacon of Power.

Each League has a minimum amount of points that need to be reached. The League requirements are based on the progress of all players playing the event and it is recalculated every hour, so you might notice some changes on the required points to achieve the next League.

If you hover your mouse over the Leagues icon in the event window, you will be able to see what is your rank and how much further you have to go until you reach the next League.
