Tiers[edit]

Getting to ToV[edit]

The guild hall teleportation assistant sells Brilliant Frigid Gemstone for ~420pp, which changes the portal to The Eastern Wastes (Torment of Velious).

The following items will take you to Crystal Caverns (Torment of Velious):

  • Froststone Crystal Resonator - Personal teleport device. Obtained with purchase of the Collector's, Premium Edition, or Family & Friends Edition.
  • Froststone Crystal Echo - House or Guild Hall teleport device. Obtained with purchase of the Premium Edition or Family & Friends Edition.

In The Northern Desert of Ro zone, Belinda (Griffon Handler) offers you a griffon ride to The Eastern Wastes (Torment of Velious). An easy way to The Northern Desert of Ro is to say, "North Ro", to Magus Alaria (Magus) in the Guild Lobby.

Druids and Wizards have ports to The Great Divide (Torment of Velious). Self only at level 113, group and others at level 114. Druids and Wizards can buy the spells from Aurelia Portrowel (Teleport Scrolls) in The Great Divide (Torment of Velious) (near the The Eastern Wastes (Torment of Velious) zone line). Wizards can also buy the spells from Excellent Raiton Evasion (Wizard and Magician Spells) in The Eastern Wastes (Torment of Velious).

Zone connections map[edit]

Zones shown (except for North Ro) are ToV zones, not The Scars of Velious zones of the same name

Progression[edit]

Raid Progression[edit]

There are three tiers of raids, and each tier will open one month per tier after the expansions launches. So, tier 1 will become accessible one month after the expansion launches.

We wanted to share a quick update regarding Torment of Velious with you. After the stellar assistance we’ve received with beta testing we’ve come to the conclusion that the TS Questline isn’t quite ready and it will not be in time for launch, delivering a satisfying experience is important to us which means we are going to put some more time into it.

We anticipate the questline to release around mid-January and will leave the current portions in beta so players can continue to run through it and keep sharing that valuable feedback!

Power Sources[edit]

Luminous Restless Ice[edit]

The Broken Mirror introduced a special item, the Eyes of Life and Decay. The Eyes of Life and Decay boost your damaging and healing abilities. This is obtained by completing raid achievements. They start out only doing so by 1% but gain power as you complete more raid achievements.

However, the Eyes of Life and Decay only work on abilities up to level 110.

Torment of Velious introduces a new item, Luminous Restless Ice. Luminous Restless Ice has the Focus Effect: Restless Focus which improves damaging and healing abilities up to level 120. It is a type 3 augmentation. In addition, the Eyes of Life and Decay could only be obtained and improved by difficult to complete raid achievements. However, Luminous Restless Ice is obtained by completing solo/group quest achievements. It is still necessary to compete raids and raid achievements to maximize its power.

  • Completing Hero of Eastern Wastes grants you Luminous Restless Ice with Focus Effect: Restless Focus I (1% bonus to damaging and healing abilities, level 111+ required)
  • Completing Hero of The Great Divide unlocks Luminous Restless Ice with Restless Focus II (3% bonus to damaging and healing abilities, level 112+ required)
  • Completing Hero of Velketor's Labyrinth unlocks Luminous Restless Ice with Restless Focus III (5% bonus to damaging and healing abilities, level 113+ required)
  • Completing Hero of Kael Drakkel unlocks Luminous Restless Ice with Restless Focus IV (7% bonus to damaging and healing abilities, level 114+ required)
  • Completing Conqueror of Torment of Velious (defeat all of the raids) unlocks Luminous Restless Ice with Restless Focus V (9% bonus to damaging and healing abilities, level 115+ required)
  • Completing Vanquisher of Torment of Velious (get all of the raid achievements) unlocks Luminous Restless Ice with Restless Focus VI (10% bonus to damaging and healing abilities, level 115+ required)

Alternate currency[edit]

Torment of Velious introduces two new alternate currency types:

  • Froststone Ducats - Earned by doing Torment of Veliouis missions. Used to purchase group gear.
  • Warlord's Symbols - Earned by completing Torment of Velious raids. Used to purchase raid gear.

Lore[edit]

A new threat faces all and many creatures that have been familiar to Norrathians have been strangely transformed by living ice.

The lands and denizens of the continent of Velious are suffering. The icy landscape has seemingly come to life and is flowing oddly upward toward the sky. This restless ice is infecting and animating the inhabitants it touches, turning them into zombie-like beings with a strange icy infection that appears alive in its own way – moving and shifting over their bodies. What has caused this strange turn? And what could it mean? All adventurers are called upon to unravel the chilling mysteries that are the Torment of Velious.
