The Cavalry Has Arrived!

A technological breakthrough has exploded onto Atreia's battlefields. Wielding key-shaped Cipher-Blades, Aethertechs summon magical war machines known as Bastions. These devastating walkers are a product of the discovery of the Petralith, and ancient schematics from the Sauro Supply Base. Once Elyos and Asmodian technicians had a frame to work with, they converted Hyperion's Aether into a sustainable energy source. These new armored suits will spearhead the advance of Daevic armies.

The Illuminary Obelisk

Built to protect Katalam from an outside attack, The Illuminary Obelisk is a point of strategic interest. The Obelisk houses a shielding device that has been sabotaged by Beritra's 43rd Destruction Unit. Daevas must advance on the Obelisk to regain control of its defensive power if they hope to repair the shielding unit and turn the tides of war in their favor.

Iron Wall Warfront

Governor Pashid held a slim victory over the Eternal Bastion, but had suffered heavy losses from previous battles. Elyos and Asmodian spies discovered that Pashid's forces had dwindled to the point of weakness, and that now is the opportune moment to press their advantage. A new Warfront has erupted to claim the Eternal Bastion!
