Sacrificing herself, Lady Siel contained the cataclysm and preserved the lands surrounding the shattered tower. Now, journey back to the time-locked lands of Norsvold and Iluma with Aion’s 5.0 expansion to learn about the past and the terrible power that could reignite the cataclysm and threaten the entire existence of Elysea or Asmodae.”
