Description[edit | edit source]

Summary[edit | edit source]

Arkan Drew would like you to venture out on an Escalation hunt in the Maelstrom itself.

Journal[edit | edit source]

Aethersmith Arkan Drew does more than just craft lantern for Slayers. He is also a keen observer of the aetheric currents that swirl in the stormy skies above Ramsgate. He reports that recent disruptions in the Maelstrom have released broken island chains linked by powerful charged aether from the storm's heart. The city needs this power source — and everyone wants to keep this powerful new form of energy away from hungry Behemoths. Venture out on an Escalation hunt to face a series of increasingly difficult battles, using your lantern to capture and use the charged aether from these island battlegrounds.
