Bak'al's Destruction 3

Bak'al's Destruction 3 is a Secret Discovery, and the last of three Discoveries revolving around the corrupted warlord Bak'al's attacks on Wynn Province. It is centred on the ruined foundation of a farmhouse on the Coastal Trail; today, the site is dominated by an obsidian spike uncommon outside the Roots of Corruption, but a vision of the past, viewed through a small, flooded cave nearby the ruins, reveals how it was destroyed.
Unlocking the Discovery[edit | edit source]
Just west of the farmhouse ruins and south of the Coastal Trail is a small hole in the ground with water at the bottom, giving access to a small, dark cave. Entering the dark portal (with purple particles) at the other end of the cave will trigger the vision, stated by on-screen titles as taking places in the year 162 AP, relatively soon after the Nether Portal first opened.
After the vision is over, you will be teleported to the surface once more, just outside the ruins. If the player is at least level 5, the Discovery will be unlocked automatically after viewing the vision for the first time, awarding 200 Experience Points.
Summary[edit | edit source]
The vision shows a human farmer living at the farmhouse, then intact, being attacked and killed by Bak'al's magic after his sudden appearance. He then begins destroying the building itself, seemingly causing its slow corruption just by being near it, before casting a final spell and disappearing. After, all that remains in place of the house is the corruption spike seen today and smouldering ruins. The farmer also rises as a corrupted "Zombified Farmer", walking away in the direction of nearby Katoa Ranch in the final shot.
Dialogue[edit | edit source]
- Farmer: Gods, NO!
- Bak'al: The darkness must spread.
