During the Cataclysm, the link connecting Aloria to the Veil was violently ripped open, creating widespread destruction and chaos throughout the world.
Countless people died, and most of those who were able to fled the horrors that escaped the beyond. The few that chose to stay fought perilously; the battlegrounds surrounding Silveredge were filled with the sounds of weapons clashing with the maws and claws of powerful monsters that drew their strength from the Void.
Illustrious mages gained power beyond their wildest dreams as the newly granted ability to channel energy from the Veil enabled them to control powerful spells, giving Alorians the strength to fight back.
Decades later, the denizens of Silveredge are safe within the city boundaries, their fear of the corruption and the monsters that lay within tempered with their faith of the soldiers and the adventurers that seek the unknown. However, the night air in the tavern and the stories woven by the hearth contain a common thread: the further one strays from the safety of Silveredge, the more danger one will face.
The Dark World, MassiveCraft's grand-scale questing and PvE experience, is releasing April 14th at 5pm EST/10pm BST!
The Dark World takes place in Ceardia, where void energy has changed the rules of natural order. Uncover Ceardia’s many secrets through MassiveCraft’s latest RPG experience, help the citizens rebuild across six new cities and explore beyond their borders in search of treasures beyond your wildest imagination.
The Dark World contains altered gamerules compared to the rest of MassiveCraft:
- No PVP
- No Elytra
- No Backpack outside of established towns.
- Players can use powerful magical spells and use artifacts to fight monsters.
- Fast travel to other cities is available through the Ceardian horsemaster.
- Fast travel to many locations is possible through the use of consumable teleport gems.
- Inns offer goods and services that aid in healing and regeneration for use across Ceardia.
There are a range of challenging and rewarding boss fights that are spread across Ceardia, with more to come in the future. These bosses are tuned to red difficulty, so prepare accordingly.
The main bosses found throughout Ceardia include: The Necromancer, The Spider Queen and The Ancient Dakkar.
Boss drops include: Netherrite god tools with mending, iron god tools, weapons and armour with mending, wands and master wands, treasure maps, food and potion supply drops, mineral supply drop and unique weapons with powerful additional skills limited to use in Ceardia.
Pink miniboss mobs also spawn at certain locations around Ceardia and have a chance to drop boss keys, wands and treasure maps. Treasure maps guide the player towards various locations scattered throughout Ceardia and boss keys are used to access the main bosses of Ceardia, with high risk and high reward.
Tourism is a big business in Ceardia, however the lands are often too dangerous for NPCs to roam unescorted. If you are willing to escort an NPC to a neighbouring town, they will reward you handsomely!
In each town you will find Captain Swiftfoot, the NPC in charge of arranging travel to various towns. You can offer to help him escort one of his patrons to any of the nearby towns and be rewarded upon completion. The further the distance, the better the reward!
The escorted NPCs will follow you until you reach your destination, they fall too far behind you (get over 50 blocks away), or you tell them you are no longer interested in escorting them. Only one NPC can be escorted per player at a time. Boss keys, treasure maps, as well as treasure map drops can be awarded upon completion, as well as a guaranteed regal reward.
Captain Swiftfoot can be found in Silveredge, Marshburrow, Drachenburg, Islvale, Rokhdryl and Heltbury!
