About â€œTrials of Atlantis(TM)â€
â€œTrials of Atlantis,â€ the 3rd expansion to â€œDark Age of Camelot,â€ opens a whole new world as players discover the secrets of the famed lost civilization of Atlantis. Foreseeing the demise of their society, the ancient people of Atlantis, possessors of extremely powerful magical lore, built a series of trials
into the ruins of their once great culture. Players can take on the nine trials and unlock new mysterious powers while mastering the perilous ocean and
confronting terrifying monsters.
â€œTrials of Atlantisâ€ is designed to challenge high-level players by introducing a Master Level advancement system. As a player moves sequentially through each of the nine trials, they will achieve a corresponding Master Level. With each Master Level, players gain new Atlantean Master Abilities, each with its own unique capabilities and skills. Emphasizing group play, the trials are designed to be tackled by groups of players. Players are able to travel by boat, explore islands within the ruins, swim to submerged dungeons, and battle new creatures in underwater caves. Additionally, â€œTrials of Atlantisâ€ features three new races, dozens of original monsters, as well as quests to discover and treasures to reclaim.
