Discover the West Weald

Players are set to explore the lush landscapes of West Weald, marked by its encroaching Valenwood jungle and Daedric incursions. This new zone includes the Colovian capital city of Skingrad, the Dawnwood wilds, ancient Ayleid ruins, and the Colovian Highlands.

More Than Just Quests

In addition to the main storyline, “Gold Road” includes a new 12-person trial named the Lucent Citadel, world events, bosses, delves, public dungeons, and unique in-game rewards. This variety ensures an engaging experience for all types of players.

Pre-Purchase and Deluxe Options
