Mechanical golems and spirits go about their dastardly business as players find the new high-level instance, the Aeternal Circle, in which four powerful rune guardians challenge the courageous to gruelling battles.

The Ancient Kingdom of Rorazan is situated in the west of the new continent of Kolydia. For generations, the inhabitants here lived in peace with one another. However, when underlings of the demon mage Maderoth released an elemental being, the King of the Fires, from his centuries-long imprisonment, a violent explosion erupted. The resulting blaze reduced vast expanses into nothing more than wastelands. The only remaining inhabitants now are the spirits, mechanical beings, and fire elementals capable of surviving this burnt terrain.

In the north of Rorazan, players will find the entrance to the new high-level instance, the Aeternal Circle, available in two different levels of difficulty. Four powerful rune golems have fortified themselves here, and after each boss battle, a riddle will have to be solved before players can teleport into the next area. In the final battle, players will pit themselves with sword, shield, and spell against the powerful Da‘dalodin.
