Queen of Chaos: Prison of Monsters

This Weekend: our 13th Birthday Origin Story Continues

Log in this weekend for the conclusion of our 13th birthday story event in... Queen of Chaos: Prison of Monsters! You've traveled back in time, battled alongside the 12 Heroes of Lore to recover the Elemental Orbs needed to seal away the Queen of Monsters. And now, the final battle is here. The Queen shows NO FEAR. There is no telling what tricks the Queen has up her sleeves... er, tentacles? O_O Stay alert at all times. To the very. Last. Second. 

In Queen of Chaos: Elemental Orb Hunt, you fought to help the original Ledgermayne, Tibicenas, Xing & Xang, and more find the rest of the Elemental Orbs... the keys to saving Lore by imprisoning the Queen.
