  • Explore the caves
    • Guide Alric to back to the surface
  • Ancient Mechanism (optional)
    • Bring Alric to the mechanism
    • Locate the two missing orbs

Hints Edit

This mission is the first where you fight the Fallen exclusively and where you can see their buildings. Alric mentions that Ruannon called them "Summoners".

The mission is not to be underestimated, since you start only with a few units and no base. The Fallen make clear in the very beginning that this won't be easy. The most important thing is to build a strong base with a generous defense made of Watch Towers. When this is achieved, the rest is not that difficult anymore.

The side quest is easy - one Granite Orb is to the very south in a side corridor and the second is exactly in the middle of the map. You get two Healing Dusts +200 and a Stone Golem to summon.

The Fallen base with the beacon is to the northeast.
