The Great Spinal Hall[]

Beneath the colossal shantak bones lies a testament to Goroth. The Mega Health a symbol of the life we give in servitude to the The Sire of Embers. The slipgate at his feet leads one upward to the Lightning Gun. A broken wall section nearby often allows for a quick escape along with a few important Cooldown Hourglasses before fleeing towards Noden’s Outcropping.

Noden’s Outcropping[]

A quick retreat away from the Mega Health, Noden’s Outcropping gives vista to the Greatsword monument. Here the Heavy Machinegun, two Small Healths and a Light Armor allow players to quickly gear up, but be wary of rocket attacks that could send you flying into the molten barrens below.

Inner Courtyard[]

The lower level of the courtyard is surrounded by second story stone balconies that will leave any player below wishing for high ground. A jumppad at the end of the courtyard can provide that escape, with a Rocket Launcher as a reward for any that makes it safely to the top. When played in DM or TDM, the Power-Up spawns in the center of the courtyard.
