(November, 26th - December, 20th, 2018) Long ago, in ancient times, before the destruction of Auroria, people had believed that there was only one land. Their land – Auroria. They believed that only them existed... with their continent as the only one on the whole earth. And that there is nothing beyond the endless seas. Only emptiness and raging waters. But they were wrong... It is common for people to believe in their little worlds invented and think of themselves as the center of the universe. People are self-confident and vain creatures... They were wrong... Beyond the far and wide seas... beyond the heavy storms and beyond the boundless horizon... there were more continents... more worlds to discover. On these continents everything seemed like on ours, people would pass away naturally... there were guards to protect the innocent... and gods. Gods were very powerful... but not omnipotent… not all-seeing. So, Gods created the assistants – Titans. Titans were very powerful creatures with a truly gigantic size. The Gods taught them magic, very ancient magic. The titans were solely controlled by the gods and were entitled to administer justice. There were multiple different titans and each of them had his own element under control: the seas, the forests, the deserts, the fields, the mountains, etc. Noone knew the real names of the titans, as if you know his name you can control him. For centuries the continents were living in peace and quietness and the titans guarded everyone... there were no mistakes.... no thieves. But people are self-confident and vain creatures... People of Auroria descended into a huge crater and opened the gates of Hell. The great Gods were forced to fight the ancient evil of Hell. No one else has heard anything about them. The Titans were left without their masters... without a guiding hand… without a goal in life. Years had passed, the Titans learned to live independently. Many of them tried to fulfill the duty entrusted to them by Gods. Others wandered aimlessly around the world. But there were the Titans, who cultivated their anger at their masters living them, at the whole world and at their brothers. Over time, the anger swept them and the Titans went wild. They crashed everything in their path. They killed their fellow Titans. They carried death. The powerful ancient magic of the giants could destroy everything. So... the continents got empty. Nothing left... even the trees. Only the scorched deserts and a handful of the Titans killing each other. Among the Titans there was one Titan, possessing the original mental magic. He could skillfully enslave the mind of the enemy. He captured the mind of a Titan and forced him to destroy himself. Finally, only two Titans remained. The first one was called Leviathan – the Titan of the seas, and the second was Crow – the Titan of the swamps... Meantime, Auroria was already almost destroyed and its remnants were fading away at the blink of an eye. The great Goddess Nui, used all her power and sacrificed her life to open a portal to the Titans continent... People rushed through the portal seeking for salvation. On the other side of the portal nothing but the desert lands were waiting for them. New residents had to work hard to return life to the lands. They planted grass, trees, breed birds and other animals. Years have passed since then. Lands people occupied expanded, technologies developed, the population grew. And one day, adventurers discovered a strange gigantic tree... Strange, but there shouldn't be anything here... People came closer to study the tree. And suddenly, they heard strange whispering voices. The voices got louder and louder, it was impossible to resist them... The adventurers stood rooted to the spot, they could not even move their fingers. And the tree, meanwhile, moved... a huge branch soared up and crushed them... Titan awakened, he realized that life returned to the continent… he had to destroy it. After all, where there is life, there is no peace. Titan went to correct that... Dozens of villages and cities, on his way, were ground to dust. Titan was moving further and further... But people are self-confident and vain creatures... People gathered armies, dozens, hundreds of thousands of warriors. They geared them up... the best armor… the best weapons and sent them into battle with the Titan. Noone ever returned... Defeat after defeat… There were mages among them. Educated and savvy men. They understood the origin of Titan and understood that they would hardly be able to destroy such a powerful creature of God... For months they were concentrated on learning the ancient writings and incoherent scraps of the ancient texts. They were looking for a way to pacify the Titan. And found. The only way to cope with the Titan was to cast an ancient seal spell on him 7 times and it must be done on the ice. Only this spell can disorient and send Titan to the other world. But, even this great spell is not able to pacify forever all the Titan’s power. Time will pass and Titan will be able to break the shackles and return to our world. There was no choice. The spell was the only way out… People have gathered their last strengths. Even peasants, merchants and teenagers joined the battle. There was no choice. This was the last fight. If people lose this time, then Titan will destroy everything and everybody… everybody, whom at the cost of her life saved the Goddess Nui. People lured Titan to the Miroir Tundra. Hundreds of thousands of warriors and commoners fought bravely against the Crow. Tens of thousands of them died from only one stroke of Titan's hand. He enslaved the minds of tens of thousands and destroyed them... But the mages were good in what they did. Mages cast an ancient spell. The spell did not seem to work.... on the seventh day of the fight... almost noone was left of this huge army... the spell had already been read six times, but no effect on Crow... People rushed into the last attack, covering the magicians, working on the seventh spell, with their bodies... And now, a giant branched hand soared up again... The soldiers were whispering their last goodbyes... Suddenly, a bright light lit up all around. The light was so bright that it was impossible to see anything. There was no titan, no earth, no mages, no even their companions nearby.... When the light disappeared, the Titan vanished… Th only thing remained was a huge seal on the ground. "Finally, VICTORY!" - people thought. After all, people are self-confident and vain creatures... Centuries later, the Titan returned more than once and destroyed human settlements again and again. But each time people went into the battle against him and at the cost of hundreds of thousands of lives sealed him, earning a little more time for themselves... Nobody knows when Titan will return..._________________________________________________________________________________________________ Dear ArcheRagers, In this event you will have to face an ancient Titan, called Crow, and his followers.

The Rift will spawn randomly in one of 3 locations: Sungold Fields, Solzreed Peninsula or Solis Headlands. More accurate spawn locations will be displayed on your map. As soon as you destroy the rift wave, the next one will appear. If you don’t destroy all the waves, then the rift will disappear in 2 hours. PvP near the rift is not welcome, so everyone within 250m from the rift will receive a special buff that will increase Toughness +200k. Players are strongly encouraged to form groups and raids to fight the rift, since opponents are extremely strong and can easily kill single players.
