Introduction to Legion

Timeless Monoliths

When activated Timeless Monoliths will spawn 2 armies in stasis from a moment in time when they were battling, players can decide which ones to unfreeze by reducing their HP to zero before the timer expires. Certain monsters will have special rewards, indicated by an icon above their head showing what item they will drop, these monsters are considerably more powerful.

Timeless Emblems

Timeless Emblems are essentially the fragment used to enter The Domain of Timeless Conflict. You can collect splinters from Legion encounters in maps, after you obtain 100 they will form an emblem that you place in your map device, you need a minimum of two emblems to enter the domain.

Domain of Timeless Conflict

The Domain of Timeless Conflict is a revealed arena where you can fight up to five of the armies at the same time. The zone contains a monolith in the centre, to activate the fight you must stand near it until you see the timer, the domain can contain up to 5 Generals depending on how many emblems you used to open the arena.
