The Sewers Are Calling...

It's almost time for the festivities! Duskruin Arena preparations are nearly complete, and merchants have begun excitedly setting up their wares, eager to bring their rare treasures to you!

But beneath the grounds, in the labyrinthine walls of the sewers, faint whispers are echoing throughout the dark corridors.

The rats are gathering...but they don't all appear as they once did before.

New Bloodrune Discovered!

Hidden somewhere within the treasures of the sewers, the heist, and the arena, a new legendary bloodrune can be found.  This bloodrune is a tribute to the past, to the beginning, to the place where we all got our start!  When properly placed within a moonshard pendant, the owner will appear as a Giant Rat.

Will you be the next Spike?

New Rats Lurking!

Several new species of rats can be found in the sewers, some with glowing eyes and rabid looks to them!  Be careful when handling them, though they seem friendly enough to keep at your side!  Wearing rat pheromones will help in your search!
