The Forgotten Frontier is a limited-time Voyage of Wonders stage available from October 22, 2021 until November 5, 2021. In order to collect the chests scattered throughout the stage, players must solve puzzles involving light beams and valves in order to cleanse the area of Spectral Wastes and advance forward.

There is 1 crystal chest and 14 gold chests to collect.


Historical records cite that the Lightbearer Empire paid a hefty price in order to keep the undead out of the Black Woods.

But there are no unbreakable walls - not on borders, nor in people's temples of faith.

In the cold winds of the forest, the seeds of death have quietly fallen to the ground, taking root and sprouting into an evil unmatched. The decaying soil is stained an acidic green, its noxiousness so vile that no mortal can pass over it. These Spectral Wastes block passage through to many places, and must be avoided at all costs.

All horrors leave scars on the land.

Event Rules

  • Explore the world and acquire an assortment of loot and rewards while the event is underway.
  • After each battle has been concluded, the health and energy levels for heroes and enemies will not be reset.

Tattered Notes Lies... they're all lies?

I still can't convince myself, I believed in the Divine Light so much, I admired its power so much... What am I supposed to say to those who still believe in me?

[Start of level]

Lucius: The village ahead has been long corrupted by demonic forces. We must move with caution. Paying extra attention to where we step.

Belinda: Understood.

[Attempt to walk forward]

Lucius: .....

Belinda: What is it?

Lucius: It's worse than I thought. The stench of death has corrupted the whole region.

Belinda: Spectral Wastes?

Lucius: Yes. Mortals' bodies cannot safely traverse Spectral Wastes.

Belinda: Lucius, our investigation will take time. We must enter the village before night fall, there isn't much time left.

Lucius: Divine beacons must simultaneously use two types of energy to be illuminated. Different types of energy can only be transmitted through the colored line with which it corresponds.

Belinda: The energy hasn't been correctly activated. The valve must be adjusted. There's a problem here too, but it seems to be a different kind of problem.

Game Log: The only way to traverse Spectral Wastes is to illuminate Divine Beacons. Only the Divine Light's power can temporarily drive out evil.

[Illuminate first Scattering Beacon]

Lucius: It worked.

Belinda: Let's pass through as fast as we can.

[Read Tattered Note]

Lucius: There are temple records. It clearly states around a hundred clerics were sent as reinforcement. How could this have happened to the village?

Belinda: ..... It would seem that the reinforcements couldn't make it here during the time that the undead army were here.

Game Log: Some tattered Notes caught our attention. This seems to have come from a disciple who "used" to believe in the Divine Light...

[Read Scribbled Handwriting]

Lucius: .....

Belinda: Lucius?

Lucius: Let's make haste. Time is of the essence.

Game Log: I'm more curious about Lucius' reaction than these peculiar notes.

He never told anyone about his past, but I knew his nightmares have scarred him.

[Continue cleansing areas]

Belinda: There's something afoot. The village is heavily corrupted by the undead scourge, how can there still be "residents"? Unless the residents are...

Lucius: (Lucius appears lost in deep thought, as if remembering something)

It has to be them.

Belinda: Lucius.

[Inspect Eerie Village]

Lucius: (Lucius notices silhouettes in the evening sun)

A measure of great desperation. To survive... a steep price must be paid.

Belinda: So in the past you...

(The figures behind the window seemed to sense something, and begun murmuring to one another. The strange murmurs grew louder and closer from all directions)

Lucius: Look out!
