After visiting Seratos, Eastern Holdings, or some combination of either zone, one option for questing in Storm Legion is Ardent Domain, the fourth zone on the Brevane continent. Ardent Domain is ideal for players starting at around levels 55-58. The easiest way to get there is by traveling to either the Vaud Tower or Miran Gate porticulum point in City Core then heading west.
Ardent Domain continues the core theme that makes up much of questing in City Core and Eastern Holdings. What once were large, looming estates now crumble into ruins, and the landscape of Ardent Domain has been transformed into one almost frozen in time. The land is parched and pale. Roots and strange vegetation loom overhead, and dangerous creatures cause what few citizens remain to hide inside a bunker. That bunker, Turnis River Bunker, is where the majority of story quests take place and begin from.
Click on the map below to see the full-size version:
There are three porticulum points in Ardent Domain which are marked by the green circles on the map above as well as the green-bordered text. There are three Onslaught areas, which are marked by the dark blue circles. Those are located in Dawnkeeper Vale, which is northeast of Turnis River Bunker, Temple of Thontic, and Cassana Estate. Other points of interest have black-bordered text.
If you’re interested, there’s also an achievement called “Pew Pew Pew” in Ardent Domain to loot a special Spooky Book (not the one needed for the zone’s puzzle). The book’s located at the Temple of Thontic, inside the main chamber where you’ll get a quest to kill a named enemy. The book initially appears on the various benches as you walk inside, facing the altar. Upon running up to the book, however, it will disappear, reappear on a different bench, and never becomes intractable at this point.
To actually interact with the book, you must follow it to all of its spawn points before an invisible timer runs out. Mounting makes this easier, since you do not have to actually click the book to cause it to change locations. If you reach all of its spawn points in time, the book will respawn on the altar for you to loot. Thanks to the mobs that like to respawn in the room, it may be advisable to grab a friend for this one!
