** As if the 2.1 patch for Storm Legion [[spoiler: Crucia the Storm Dragon and even Regulos himself(in his true form as the God of Death unlike the other Blood Storm) have been defeated.]] That's the good news. The bad news is that [[spoiler: Crucia's spirit has managed to find a hiding place so she's still out there and Regulos, while dead, claims that his presence was holding back something worse.]] [[OhCrap Oh crap...]]

They do ally with her yet she pulls an YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness on them in order to control said Akvan so they change the portal so that it leads directly to the Akvan that she's trying to control resulting in [[EvilIsNotAToy her being controlled by said greater horrors]].

* EldritchAbomination: Every arch-dragon, but also most anything from the Plane of Water. So you can imagine what Akylios--the Water Dragon--[[UpToEleven is like]]. We don't even fight his true form just his dragon form which dosen't even compare to his true form [[spoiler:but we will likely fight his true form as the God of Water in the Plane of Water expansion.]]

** We get to see the true nature of Regulos as the God of Death and he seems more comprehensible then [[EldritchLocation his own realm]](he's a LiteralSplitPersonality consisting of Regulos Dragon of Death and Aedraxis Mathos who later preform a FusionDance making it possible [[spoiler:to kill the God of Death DeaderThanDead]] though if one knew of this fact before Aedraxis Mathos was born they would be DrivenToMadness at the realization that Regulos is unkillable until Aedraxis Mathos is born) which isn't surprising for a [[GrimReaper God of Death]].

Added DiffLines:

** The 5-man instance "The Fall of Lantern Hook" has you traveling into a vision of the future in which Maelforge has conquered the Droughtlands and possibly the entire world. You run around a rather ashy version of Lantern Hook for a bit before the dragon himself shows up and [[OutrunTheFireball chases you off.]]

[[http://www.riftgame.com/en/index.php Rift]] is an MMORPG from Trion Worlds which purports to be a truly dynamic gaming arena, as opposed to other such games where everything is always the same. This is made possible by, you guessed it, the eponymous [[HellGate rifts]] cropping up randomly and spewing out hordes of monsters, while simultaneously altering the very landscape [[PowerFloats and]] [[PowerGlows just]] [[PowerEchoes generally]] [[FloatingWater looking]] [[ArtMajorPhysics badass.]] The players can either shut the things or use their powers for themselves; it's really a matter of preference, although the [[KnightTemplar Guardians]] would prefer the former and the [[MadScientist Defiant]] might encourage the latter. But whatever your decision, one thing's for sure; if you don't move fast, you just might lose your opportunity!
