Though shrouded in mystery, the Lucent Citadel stands as a gleaming structure in the sand of Fargrave's wastelands. Records and tales differ on the nature of what lies within, but all agree that the arcane knot must be powerful enough to make another expedition of brave explorers take the risk.

Lucent Citadel is a ruined stronghold in the wastelands of Fargrave, accessible from West Weald. Lucent Citadel is a trial, although unlike other trials the main objective is to obtain an unstable relic called the Arcane Knot and bring it back to the entrance.
