City on a Hill The Gloom Dagger

Into the Unknown is a main quest in Wayfinder.



Lost Zones are shadows of places consumed by the Gloom. Use the Gloom Gate in Skylight to enter a Lost Zone and recover a Codex Ember.


The Gloom is consuming our world. However, Omen has explained that as a Wayfinder, you may be able to enter Lost Zones: shadows of places consumed by the Gloom. Use the Gloom Gate in Skylight to enter a Lost Zone and recover a Codex Ember. Omen will guide you along the way.


You explored your first Lost Zone and recovered the ember needed to forge your own connection to Aurelian. Yet before escaping, there was a strange presence which seemed to recognize you.



Clear City on a Hill.

Clear Phase 1

This is a Lost Zone. It's not a perfect replica of the world that was; it's a dream inspired by what was lost. When you return here again, everything—the layout, the creatures within it—may change.

This Lost Zone is tied to Aurelian, a fortress monastery of the Avar Order of the Silver Codex. The Codex Monks were conducting arcane research, and we need to know more about them.

Aurelian was razed by raiders from the Maze years before the Gloomfall. You'll need to establish your own connection to it.


I feel—weaker than I was before?


Yes… It was a miracle that we could pull you back to Skylight, but like your memories, some of your skills were lost. Don't worry; it will all come back to you in time.

This connection I've provided is temporary and unpredictable. Look for a Codex Ember. With it, you can turn your shard into a full Gloom Dagger and establish your own connections.

I can't guide you when you go deeper. To escape, you need to find the heart of this Lost Zone—the Anchor—and destroy it. This weakens the Gloom and lets us harvest its energy through your shard.

Explore as thoroughly as you can. We need the supplies and knowledge you may find, and exploration may grant you connection to other Lost Zones. Now go, and good luck.

Clear Phase 2

This is the Codex Ember Omen mentioned—what I need to enhance the shard.

Clear Phase 4

That's the Anchor. I can destroy it with my focusing shard—but last time I did this, it summoned defenders.

Clear Phase 6

Now! The Anchor's exposed. I can destroy it!

Clear Phase 7
Shadowy Figure

What is this? Something new. Something interesting.


Who's there?

Shadowy Figure

I hear an echo in the darkness. You have promise, yes. But you don't have what I need. Not yet.

Go ahead, run along home. I'll be watching you... Wayfinder.
