It takes place at Riis-Reborn, where players have to hunt down and eliminate Eramis, the Kell of the House of Salvation.


Eventide Ruins, Rathmore Chaos, Europa

The Guardian hunts Eramis

  • Ghost: The more Eliksni that escape, the better I feel. They deserve safety away from Eramis.
  • Variks, the Loyal: A victory, yes, but more remain.
  • Eramis: And when I find them, they'll all die. Good riddance to traitors like you — unworthy of my empire.
  • Variks: Eramis… it was never meant to be an empire. [insect-like chattering] It was meant to be home.
  • Eramis: Home? Our home was taken from us by your once Great Machine. There is no home for us while it still lives.

The Guardian defeats the Vex and the Fallen which they encounter as they continue to hunt down Eramis. The Guardian approaches a sealed Fallen barrier.

  • Eramis: You think me insane, don't you pawn? One day, you'll understand- when your City falls and your people die. When your "Traveler" abandons you.

  • Variks: Eramis... is wrong. About Variks. About Eliksni! Variks came to Europa for a second chance. For the right thing. That is strength, not weakness!
  • Eramis: Oh please, Variks. You only came here to hide. Like a coward.
  • Variks: No! Releasing Vex put Elkisni lives in danger. Many have already perished. Eramis... you are the real coward!
  • Eramis: Silence! I've had enough of you, Variks. I will enjoy watching your skull shatter into pieces.

The Guardian finds a Fallen barrier. The Guardian unseals the barrier and heads upwards in the lift.
