The Realm of Light is one of the known realms, and provides balance between darkness and light in the Gavel Province and elsewhere. The sky is perpetually gray and dark, possibly as a result of the darkness that has spread throughout the realm. It is covered in large, glowing mushrooms, while rivers of multicolored light energy flow throughout the explorable area. Insects, wisps and fungal creatures can be found throughout the Realm of Light, and are all aggressive; in addition, the peaceful Heliolux live here. The region has been under siege by dark parasites, which have cause parts of the realm to be damaged.
The music track "Light's Hymn" plays throughout the area.
Reaching the Realm of Light[edit | edit source]
The Realm of Light is first accessed immediately after completing the Finding The Light quest, the second quest in the Saving the Light questline. After acquiring Clearsight Spectacles, the player is sent by the Guardian of The Forest to find the Light Portal; after entering it, the player can talk to Aluxander at level 74 in order to start The Realm of Light. After Finding The Light, players can reach the portal by wearing the Clearsight Spectacles and travelling to the portal; the cave will then appear, and the realm will be accessible.
The Heliolux[edit | edit source]
The Realm is inhabited by the intelligent Heliolux, a species of floating beings made of light. They live mostly in their village, under the western mountains in the realm, and gain their power from a small “sun” in the centre of the village. This sun is directly linked to the life force of every Heliolux; if it were to become corrupted, they would all fade away and die, or possibly become Corrupt Heliolux. The Heliolux are skilled in magic, and some Heliolux mages guard the Runestone along with Gaclux, keeping the now deranged light beast Orphion sealed inside. They have also domesticated Light Dogs, creatures which they use to guard their village.
The Parasites[edit | edit source]
The Succoru are creatures of darkness that upon contact with the realm of light caused several locations to become corrupted. They are very dangerous, especially for the Heliolux, who due to being made of pure light, are easily corrupted by the presence of the Succoru.
Several Decades before the arrival of the player, another parasite broke into the Realm of Light and attached itself onto Orphion, to drain its power. At first the beast fought the parasite, but eventually it would lose control, and kill a Heliolux, prompting them to seal away Orphion.
Link with Gavel[edit | edit source]
The light energy of the realm is directly linked to the life force of the Gavel Province, and this bond plays a key role in the ongoing War of the Realms, as the good in Gavel helps give strength to the light. During the Taproot quest, the Taproot itself states that the Realm of Light draws its energy from the goodness in Gavel, keeping both regions strong while Gavel remains pure. When the greed in Gavel began to take over, the darkness broke through into the Realm of Light and began would lead to the spread of the Corruption, which came from the contact of the dark Succoru parasites, and the realm's main force of light. As the realm's taproots became corrupted, some began to spread darkness into Gavel in the form of The Decay.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
