Swords of Legends Online details PvE questlines and Dungeons

Publisher Gameforge and developers Wangyuan Shengtang & Aurogon have posted a new trailer and information for Swords of Legends Online, detailing the MMORPG's PvE and dungeon systems.

Today's details focus on three larger questlines that can be undertaken by the player, called the Ancestral Records. These three questlines are categorized as being a bounty hunter for the Blood Ruvia, becoming an Envoy of the Turquoise Lantern, or going treasure hunting with Natural History Academy.

We've also included details on five of the game's dungeons below. This information was shared earlier from Gameforge, but it slipped past us and we decided to include it here.

Today, the team has introduced some more exciting ways to engage with the mysteries of the land and unleash your internal explorer by embarking on the enigmatic quests revealed in the Ancestral Records.

Whatever you choose, there’s a wide world of wonderful quests to embark upon!

Bounty Hunting

The Blood Ruvia is the largest organization of bounty hunters on the central plain. Their headquarters are in the Fountain Temple on Yushan Mountain.

Blood Ruvia bounty hunters are perfectionists, and absolutely fearless. Join them and improve your skills in taking down monsters:

Head to the Blood Ruvia markers on the map and use the Akabane Banner. This allows you to penetrate the monsters’ protective barrier and take them out.

Some foes you can take down on your own, but for the tougher beasts you’ll need the help of battle-hardened allies.

Successful bounty hunters can buy new costumes, avatars, titles, Morning Dew and more at the Blood Ruvia Merchant Shop.

Enter the Ghost Dimension

If you want to work as an Envoy of the Turquoise Lantern, you can’t afford to be afraid of the supernatural. But if your spirit is unwavering, you can learn the art of exorcising ghosts from magistrate You Lianjun:

Under his tutelage and using the power of the Underworld Lantern, you can ferry wandering spirits with powerful qi back to the underworld. Use your lantern to visit the world on a Soul Journey. On the map you can locate wandering ghosts which need to be pacified.

In the Envoys of the Turquoise Lantern Merchant Shop you’ll find rewards such as avatars, costumes, titles, Infernal Sandalwood, and more.

Treasure Hunting

The Natural History Academy is a research organization in which scholars from every region and culture exchange their latest discoveries. They study world events, decipher ancient writings and ensure the wheels of academic endeavor keep turning.

Anyone with a similar fascination for the world’s secrets should join them on their search:

Activate your Treasure Compass (from level cap) and look for treasure in your vicinity. Pay attention to the sounds from the compass, telling you how close or far away you are from the treasure. As you proceed, you’ll learn to find better and better treasures.

In the Natural History Academy Shop you can collect your rewards, including treasure maps, gemstones, chests, player card components and various titles.


In Swords of Legends Online you’ll find yourself battling through a host of action-packed dungeons on your adventures. In this preview, we want to share a brief overview of the first 5 dungeons which will be available in different difficulties on release.

  • Normal Dungeon 
  • Minimum level: 13
  • 4 bosses
  • 3 difficulty levels

The royal house of the Wuzhao is situated near the Yinsheng Spring, a place sacred to the God of Death. Once on the cusp of victory, the people of Hezhao recognised too late the enormous price they had to pay to keep the divine swords in check.

Players venturing into this dungeon must face off against **Wu Yeyu**, who was directly exposed to the explosion of the Demonsword. The devastating impact of this evil cost her not only her humanity, but her sanity. However, it also left her much stronger than before, making Wu Yeyu an exceedingly tough opponent.

  • 5 to 10 players
  • Normal dungeon
  • 3 bosses
  • Higher difficulty level from level 37

Any trace of the peaceful calm that once epitomised this temple has long since disappeared. Whoever trespasses on this once hallowed ground enters a hell beyond all hope. The source of this bane is the Stranger’s Sword, bathed in negative qi.

The temple is lorded over by the **Nightmare** sprung from the sword itself. In appearance, it manifests itself in the guise of the **General Wu Rui**, but it is far more bloodthirsty and twisted than he. In any event, it is the most dangerous nightmare in the dream world.

  • Normal Dungeon 
  • Minimum level: 22

Meijia has made this place her own, to pave a way through to the valley of Xiongli. Anyone tempting to step foot in these tunnels must steel themselves for a wicked surprise, as Meijia’s great demons stand ready to fend off any intruders and win time for her malevolent plans.

Heroes venturing into the depths will eventually stand confronted by the giant spider **Han Yi**. Many years ago, she was one of Xiangliu’s proudest soldiers. But following his death, Han Yi sought refuge – until eventually walking into the welcoming arms of Meijia.

Chou Prison

  • 5 to 10 players
  • Normal Dungeon 
  • Minimum level: Maximum level
  • 3 bosses
  • 3 difficulty levels

Under the previous dynasty, many criminals found their bitter end in this dank and uninviting dungeon. Chou Prison comprises a series of watery passages running out in all directions. It has now become a lair for all manner of sinister beast, and a place for Li Xiaotang to test the Yishang Sword in gruesome battle.

The ultimate challenge in Chou Prison is **Tongpi**. His impressive bronze armour protects him from all attacks, and thanks to Zhong Wuchi’s sorcery, he is capability of manipulating the five elements to his own benefit.

Raging River Ruins

  • Zone: Shinaghuai Grassland
  • 5 to 10 players
  • Regular Dungeon 
  • Accessible after reaching the maximum level

Fifty years ago, the Devastator Sect erected a series of altars and temples in Jiangdu. Following the great battle against the schools, the altars were torn down, one after the other, until all trace of them was eliminated. Yet with the appearance of the Plaguebringer, those ruins have been revealed once again – and with them the shadowy evil that grows stronger with every passing day.

Anyone entering the ruins will soon make their acquaintance with the **Spring Plague General**. Created by Nuowu, he is a powerful combatant whose Soulforce is closely bound to the Raging River Ruins themselves. If he comes under threat, the entire temple complex will be his ally.
