Two new raids with all new rewards.

The Dark Origins update arrives August 16, and brings two new raid experiences.

Scion’s Keep

The evil machinations that began with Irontech Forge continue in this new stronghold of the Iron Army. Elite soldiers in augmented suits form rank alongside the newest generation of automatons as the Iron Army’s leader—the Iron Conqueror—makes final preparations for a full-scale invasion of Gunwon City.

Scion’s Keep is a 24-member raid with a weekly lockout, and offers a progression of increasingly difficult enemies until the final boss appears. The notable rewards you’ll find within Scion’s Keep are pieces 5 and 6 of the new Legendary Fallen Soul Shields, Legendary Mystic Badges for Force Master, Summoner, and Warlock, Legendary Elemental Necklaces, and new cosmetics.

Temple of Eluvium

Zulia has sought refuge in the ancient Temple of Eluvium, a site once used by the Aransu clan to study the Spirit Realm. Now, the site is haunted by the spirits of her fallen clan mates and a legion of living statues. As Zulia flees deeper into the Temple, she conjures powerful thralls to defend her and resurrects the tortured spirit of Asura, who is now split into twin entities: one forged from fire, the other from ice.

This new 24-member raid has a weekly lockout and only those who have truly mastered their martial arts will be able to defeat the trials ahead. The notable treasures that lie within the Temple of Eluvium are pieces 1 through 4 of the new Legendary Fallen Soul Shields, Legendary Mystic Badges for Blade Master, Blade Dancer, Soul Fighter, Kung Fu Master, Destroyer, and Assassin, Legendary Elemental Necklaces, and new cosmetics.

Enthralling

The Temple of Eluvium’s final boss, the Hive Queen, and the rewards she holds—like pieces 7 and 8 of the Fallen Soul Shield set—will be introduced in a future update. We’ll provide more details as we get closer to her arrival.

Both Scion’s Keep and Temple of Eluvium are on weekly resets that occur every Wednesday at 6am server time. The raid reset item for these two instances will not be available immediately, and further details on the reset item will be announced at a later time.
