Full release news post for full details: Here
The fourth area released in our series of events based on the Horsemen, this area focuses on the black depths of Death, the Shoals of the Departed (aka Departed Shoals). A massive area of ocean has been warped and distorted by the presence of the Horseman's castle, causing all sorts of unnatural horrors to populate the depths. Shipwrecks litter the seafloor, containing Ruins Keys that match a corresponding ocean ruin somewhere else within the area. Match key to ruin, and reap the rewards. There's plenty of.. other things to do beneath the waves, as well.
Death's Permanent Horseman quests are also available inside his castle, near the Nether Portal! Click here for a guide on Horsemen Points.
Armor Rating: A-S Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Higher Artifacts, Elder Artifacts
The main attraction is the massive storm swirling in the center of the ocean, the Divine Tempest. To access it, you'll need to find a way up to, and then through, the floating island ruin of Laputa, defeat the World Guardian, and find the gate. Once among the clouds, you'll have your choice of gods to fight!
-Elder God Sanctums
Armor Rating: S-? Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Elder Artifact - The Mirror
Special Notes: New Game+ Area, see 5th Horsemen Release post. Extra Warning - This chain of events ends with the hardest fight of all science bosses. Prepare diligently.
Scattered under the waves of the Shoals of the Departed, four tests of the mind and body wait for those who think themselves ready to face off against the Elder Gods, the primordial forces of the universe. Defeat all 5 challenges, and then seek the sleepy city beneath the waves...
-Realm of Darkness
Armor Rating: ? Rank
Noteworthy Prizes: Dark Realm Armor, Dark Realm Keyblade, Light Realm Keyblade
Special Notes: New Game+ Area, see 5.5th Horsemen Release post. Elder Artifact - The Mirror is needed in order to enter.
While a separate dimension on it's own, the only way to enter the dark realm is within the abyssal hole at the center of the sunken ruins of R'lyeh. The Realm of Darkness is the origin of all Heartless across Laurasia; while they may not be much of a threat under the sun, all forms of Heartless are stronger here. Navigate these dark passageways and find the end to be able to obtain some interesting loot!
While the other areas are of middling or mixed difficulty, this and all other related Horsemen areas are only for those who are confident in their abilities- which is to say, this is end game content. It will be difficult. Everything will want to kill you. Come prepared, have fun!
