ardent domain title

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.

After visiting the Brevane continent and City Core, a story quest takes players right into Eastern Holdings, the next zone of interest in our Storm Legion map and point of interest series. Eastern Holdings is ideal for players starting at around levels 52-56, and is slightly more streamlined in its storyline than the alternative leveling path for these levels, which is Seratos over on the Dusken continent. The atmosphere in Eastern Holdings is also a little more, well, green as opposed to purple.

I won’t delve into storyline spoilers here, but I will say this much– if you’re looking for some of the ways RIFT’s developers have broadened their quest-making wings in Storm Legion, the final quest line in Eastern Holdings is a fantastic example. There’s even a bit of high jumping and investigation-style quests involved!

Keep reading to check out our huge map, complete with point of interest markings, Onslaught information, and more.

Welcome to City Core, the second zone on the Brevane continent in Storm Legion. Once a vast city and now crumbling to ruins, City Core has become overgrown, overtaken, and holds a secret. City Core is ideal for players starting at around levels 51-53, and follows a quest line from Cape Jule. There are two porticulum points which are both marked by the green circles on the map below and the green-bordered text. Hub locations have blue-bordered text, and other points of interest have black-bordered text.

Here is the first part in our series of Storm Legion zone maps– Cape Jule, the starting zone on the continent of Brevane. The area is ideal for players starting at around levels 50-52. Cape Jule is a rainforest-covered zone, full of lush foliage, waterfalls, and plenty of nasty critters to slay (one common trait for Storm Legion!). There are three porticulum points, which are both marked by the green circles on the map and the green-bordered text. Hub locations have blue-bordered text, and other points of interest have black-bordered text.

Some very interesting updates happened on the Public Test Shard (PTS) today. Remember the empty Storm Legion ship that mysteriously appeared in between Silverwood and Freemarch? Well, today it’s not quite so empty. A new world event called Tempest Rising has began, which reads “Ominous clouds can be seen on nearly every horizon, sudden squalls wrack the land, and the air reeks of ozone and ash. Be wary Ascended, Crucia stirs.” Why, hello there, Storm Legion pre-expansion event!

Investigating the ship, which is in the same location with a new name– Wreck of the Endeavor– makes it clear that yes, the ship did indeed crash. Wreckage has been added by Trion’s team, as well as an entire ship’s crew, some encroaching Storm Legion enemies, ship cannons, daily quests, and oh yeah– NPCs with Storm Legion’s new soul names.

Note: As always, any PTS information is subject to change at any time.

Yesterday, RIFT’s third official live stream aired, which was co-hosted on MMORPG.com’s TwitchTV page. It featured Dahanese, Elrar, Kervik, who is RIFT’s Lead Mage Designer, and Gersh, Producer of Trion. The team jumped right away into the good stuff, and showed us Storm Legion’s new Mage soul– the Harbinger.

The Harbinger soul is a melee single-target DPS soul that synergies well with a number of Mage souls, enabling the soul to teleport right into the enemy’s face, transform their staff or one-hander into a powerful two-handed weapon that smashes and slashes, toss around powerful instant-cast spells, boost their own survivability, and with the right balance of support souls– even serve as an off-healer.

In between all of the Storm Legion speculation happening in RIFT’s community, a player on the official forums wondered about what approach to leveling Trion has in mind for the expansion. Here is the thread. This is the question asked:

“Hey, so I am wondering what the level path will be? Will both continents be 50-60 or will one be 50-55 then the other 56-60?”

Players then chimed in with their opinions. The general consensus seemed to be that players really want to see more diversity with leveling this time around, and would not only love multiple leveling paths from levels 50-60, but would also love to see new content for levels earlier than 50, as well. If the new continents are large enough, this may very well be a possibility some day, especially if Planetouched Wilds is still on Trion’s road map.
