"This undisturbed little islet far off the coast of Summerset sports high cliffs and deep tide pools that act as popular breeding grounds for all manner of sea life, migratory birds, and even large predators. I recommend all nature watching be done from the safety of the ship."—Captain Marrisa

Backstory Description[edit]

Update 33 Patch Notes and Ascending Tide Bundle Details

On an oft overlooked little islet among the Summerset Isles, big trouble is brewing. Help the cagey Captain Kaleen lead a daring rescue of one of her former crew from the dissidents of the Ascendant Order and recover what they stole.

Ascending Tide Preview—Coral Aerie

Situated along Summerset’s northern coast, the Coral Aerie’s colorful caverns and archaic Elven ruins shelter a secret Ascendant Order hideout. Well-secluded from prying eyes, this unique location was selected by the mysterious organization for a very specific reason … The Coral Aerie was chosen because of its access to the sky, allowing gryphons free movement … As a result, this allows the local Ascendant Order to use these ruins as a base to launch attacks against their enemies.
