Levinshor, also known as AkaronKR/EU and commonly dubbed "The Gateway to Balaurea" was a region introduced in the 4.7 update. It was an optional PvPvE region intended for players of level 65. The map derived its nickname from the numerous portals it contained leading to other regions of Balaurea, including Inggison, Gelkmaros, Reshanta and even the Idian Depths.
On this map players could capture mini-outposts known as bases to unlock weekly quests that awarded . Capturing the base in the middle of the map had also become an important source for after the 5.0 update.
In the 6.0 update this map was removed from the game.
Accessing Levinshor Edit
- (Elyos) Via the Teleporter in Cygnea or Iluma.
- (Asmodians) Via the Teleporter in Enshar or Norsvold.
- Via a portal in the new Upper Abyss Landing (spawns in the base upon reaching level 4 Landing Reinforcement).
Lay of the Land Edit
The beautiful, lush lands of Levinshor are littered with mountain ranges and other rugged landscape, but managed to retain its visually appealing status and boasts an outstanding soundtrack, making it an instant favorite of many players upon its release. Elyos characters start at the Lumewillow Glade Scout Base at the top left of the map, while the Asmodians will find themselves at the Pinnacle Cataract Outpost in the bottom right corner.
As with Kaldor, the starting areas of both races are separated from rest of the map and are thus one-way travel: once you jump off, you can't get back on. These areas were meant to be PvE areas inaccessible to members of the other race, but players have been using bugs and exploits to access these areas. Outside of the starting outposts and regions, the map itself was full, unrestricted 24/7 PvPvE.
Much like in Katalam, Levinshor features an additional 13 bases (mini-outposts). These can be captured to obtain weekly quests awarding , and sell materials used for crafting the map's Tomul/Denku skin sets. The map's bases are split into four color-coded "groups", each based on the color of the circle around them (blue, yellow, green and red). Each "group" of bases has its own series of weekly quests associated with it (up to 3) that can be taken from any of the occupied bases within "group". To complete all 3 quests associated with a base group however, the players will need to own all bases of that color group. Players can capture a base by defeating the warcaptain/subjugation leader NPCs found in the center.
Vocoliths are monuments that can be activated with Ancestor Relics to summon special elite monsters which advance related quests and drop materials needed to craft the Tomul/Denku skin sets. Ancestor Relics themselves are rare drops from hostile Shaman/Aquamancer-type monsters found around friendly bases, who spawn if at least 2 out of 3 bases in a color group belong to either faction.
Center Battle Edit
Veille and Mastarius have recovered from Tiamat's attack and will battle in the center of the map on specific days at a select time. The factions can support them in taking down the opposing agent to have a chance at a piece from their faction agent's unique skin set.
Idian Depths Edit
Levinshor has four locations where access portals to the Idian Depths may appear at set times.
- Linkgate Foundry [65+]
- Infinity Shard [65+]
- Levinshor used to have a number of daily and hidden (semi)-weekly quests as well. These awarded AP relics, supplements, and . The daily quests could be obtained from your faction's starting outpost, while the semi-weekly quests could be obtained from NPCs inside the Inggison/Gelkmaros fortresses owned by your faction (2 unique quests per fortress = 8 in total). These quests were later removed following the revamp of the medal system and the collapse of the Inggison/Gelkmaros fortresses.
The lush land of Levinshor belies a terrible secret, for long ago it was Tiamat’s seat of power prior to her ascension as a dragon lord. It had long been sealed away by a powerful barrier, but with Tiamat’s demise, Beritra was able to dispel the barrier and take control of Levinshor for his own purposes. Specifically, he desired the fruits of the Linkgate Foundry’s research. Seeing Beritra’s troops on the move, the Elyos and Asmodian forces realized the barrier must’ve been removed, and began their own incursions.
