This map features several enhanced enemies, as well as crystalline manifestations of the heroes & every boss encountered throughout the main campaign from the Quest for the Lost Eternia Shards maps (excluding the Goblin Battlecruiser.)
After defeating all crystalline boss monsters, the Old One appears and must be defeated in order for the heroes to reunite with their parents. Each legendary hero must be defended in succession. Each new hero will need new defenses due to the maps changing; if you fail at any point of this event you must restart from the first map.
Players can access the Crystalline Dimension through a portal in the Tavern. (For console players, the portal is located once you play one of the DLC maps on a difficulty you have beaten all 4 on.) The portal will only spawn after the player collects all four Lost Eternia Shards in succession: Purple (Mistymire Forest), Blue (Moraggo Desert Town), Yellow (Aquanos) and Red (Sky City). It is important that the portal will be only available for one difficulty if the owner of the tavern got the 4 crystals on the same or higher difficulty AND the same mode for hardcore (HC).
Console Note: the portal to the Crystalline Dimension is found in the Sky City map.
- Mystimire Forest on hard HC
- Moraggo Desert on medium HC and insane no HC
- Aquanos on medium HC and hard no HC
- Sky City on hard HC
- portal without HC is available for hard or lower and the portal with HC is available for medium or lower (because Morrago+Aquanos WITH HC were only beaten on medium).
"With all four Eternia Shards collected, the team holds them up to the sunlight, and the crystal fragments begin to float into the air, moving towards each other.
In a flash of light they merge, to reveal a large, twisted purple Eternia Crystal, with a swirling portal of energy around it! A voice emanatets from the black abyss.
You have come far in seeking your parents, little children. It is time now that you entered the portal as they did and face your destiny! Shocked at this turn of events, the group consults with each other... what must this mean? What is inside this Eternia Crystal?
Could their legendary predecessors really be inside? Putting aside any fear and doubt, the heroes agree: they must investigate! The champions take a moment to prepare themselves for what may lie ahead. Ready together before this ultimate challenge, the team of heroes prepare to enter the vortex before them, and though they may be little, stand tall before whatever dangers await inside!"
