Story Teaser

Draoi, the CryCor liaison to the Royal Council, enforces the policies and contracts of CryCor. The primary one being the seizement of all Ayteasian discoveries. Fearas is not too pleased to have all his research and findings taken before he has a chance to really study them.

As such, the main archaeological dig, the Domhan Primary Digsite, is the current focus of Fearas and his team. Recently his team was making fantastic progress but it was halted when they came across an impenetrable wall. Worried that Draoi will force them out of their own digsite, Fearas has devised a plan to visit his old friend Jinmu, a mining engineer who may have just the equipment to drill through such wall.

This is where Amberfall Mines comes in. Jinmu is currently working with the Amberfall Excavators to mine the precious minerals for the Royal Guard. However, the mine has recently been closed down due to a group of bandits taking over. Its your job to enter the mines and strike up a deal with the bandits. Can you get the drill back?


Getting Started

Progress through the Main Storyline from the Lighthouse all the way to the Meadows Ruins. There Fearas will give you the next Main Storyline Quest. 

Note: All Main Storyline Quests have purple quest markers.

Once you pick up the quest "Darkness of Amberfall" from Fearas, head to the mine entrance directly to the east of town. Use your Quest Journal (J) and the World Map (M) and you will be on your way in no time!

Recommened level: Level 5.

Bring plenty of food, water and potions. If you are feeling worn down, remember to return to town and restock and stay at the Inn.

Tip: Don't go into the mines with a full inventory. Bring with you just enough supplies to keep yourself alive. Make a stop at the bank and clean up your inventory. If you manage your inventory successfully you can sell the junk items you aquire and make a lot of extra gold.
