Runic Descent

Runic Descent - MMORPG.com

Trion Worlds and the Rift development team have released screens and lore behind Runic Descent. The area is a corrupted glade outside of the dwarf stronghold of Hammerknell. After the dwarves descended into the ground and sealed the entrance, Fae took over the glade but were subsequently corrupted by the tainted magic of Regulos. Check out the screens in our Rift gallery and a bit of lore below.

Runic Descent must be cleared of riftspawn if Telara is to survive. Deathtouch brings slow corruption as easily as devastation, eroding Telara’s very will to endure. In Runic Descent, the branches no longer blow in the breeze, and the air itself is stagnant. Regulos’s power extends over the beautiful and the hideous alike, and if Runic Descent is not cleansed, no one will believe that the Destroyer’s power can be assailed.

Before the rifts, Hammerknell owed much of its prosperity to secret Death magic. Even if Aedraxis had not worked his horrors, Regulos could have used the Dwarven delve to trigger a different disaster. Hammerknell remains a looming threat where the Destroyer could anchor himself in Telara. Every bit of Death magic aids Regulos, so the Ascended must destroy the corruption at Runic Descent, if only to limit his avenues of escape to the seemingly numberless rifts.
