The Yggdrasil in Dragon Quest IX.

Yggdrasil (世界樹) (sometimes also known as the World Tree) is a recurring element of the Dragon Quest series, being a, usually great, mythical tree that pierces the heavens with her branches and is said to have divine healing properties. Due to her importance, Yggdrasil is commonly refered to, unlike standard trees, with feminine pronouns in most titles.

Introduced in Dragon Quest II, she is found most of the time in highly isolated and dangerous locations that prevent common folk from approaching her. While originally a rather minor set piece, versions of Yggdrasil have began nowaday to take increasingly central roles in the story of each individual following title,

The Yggdrasil leaf and Yggdrasil dew carry the essence of the main tree within them, making them among the most potent healing items in any game. Yggdrasil's appearance and scale varies greatly across the worlds, sometimes taking the form of an average, albeit really big tree, to sometimes being so colossal in size to dwarf a castle.


Dragon Quest II

The Scions of Erdrick can obtain an Yggdrasil leaf by travelling south of the Sea Cave to an island with one single tree on it. By searching this tree, a leaf can be obtained. The party can only get one leaf at a time from this tree and if they already have an Yggdrasil leaf in the bag, they cannot get another one.

In the remakes of this title, the Prince of Cannock will fall ill after spending the night at Beran's Inn, struck by a deadly curse cast by the nefarious High Priest Hargon. Unable to continue in his weakened state, he is forced to leave the party.

While there is the option to continue and conclude the journey without the Prince's assistance, it is also possible to cure him with the use of an Yggdrasil leaf, after which he will make a full recovery without any further repercussions.

Dragon Quest III

Erdrick and their companions can obtain a leaf by searching the centre point between the intersection of four lone mountains found in the vast foresty area northwest of Jipang. Similar to Dragon Quest II, only one leaf can be acquired in such manner at a time by the party; however, multiple extra leaves can be obtained as dropped items from some monster species. Only when all Yggdrasil leaves in their possession are used can the party return to the location to collect another.

Dragon Quest IV

Taking its first major role in the series, Yggdrasil is a location in Dragon Quest IV.


Climbing Yggdrasil in Dragon Quest IV

Located on the Siroc continent, slightly east of Mintos, and surrounded by a ring of impenetrable mountains, it is only accessible by balloon flight. Nobody in the world is sure of what the holy plant origins are; what is certain is that, while Yggdrasile at first glance it may appear simply as a normal tree, it is actually immense, hundreds of times the size of any normal tree, and it exudes a strong holy aura. After being evicted from Strathbaile, the Elfs relocated at the base of the tree, founding the quiet village of El Forado, where thanks to the soothing power of the tree, elfs, dwarfs, foxes, talking animals and even friendly monsters, all live in harmony.

The party of the Chosen first visited Yggdrasil during their search for the pieces of the Zenithian Equipment, tipped off by the Treasure Map gifted to them by Conrad Hilton. Hearing from the locals that not only the World Tree recently has been infested with aggressive monsters, but also that somebody was calling for help from atop the plant, the group ascended its boughs, encountering Orifiela, a Zenithian woman who had descended from the sky in order to collect Yggdrasil leaves, but had been attacked by monsters, leaving her injuried and with a broken wing. In exchange for aid in returning to Zenithia, she helped them find the Zenithian sword, located nearby among the leaves, then showed the Chosen the way to The Stairway to Zenithia.

Just like Dragon Quest II and III, by examining the leafed floor an Yggdrasil leaf can be plucked from the tree and acquired, but only one at a time can be in the inventory of the current party formation. That being said, if not even a single leaf is stored in the general bag, clever use of the wagon can be used to stockpile a much greater quantity of leaves. Additionally, among the boughs, two treasure chests rest, one with a phial of Yggdrasil Dew, the other a Staff of Salvation.

In castle Zenithia, a friendly Minidemon is tasked to take care of a series pots containing numerous Yggdrasil's saplings. If spoken to he will gift one Yggdrasil Dew, doing so each time all of the dew in the entire party possession, including not present ones, has been consumed, unlike the similar example mentioned above.

In Chapter 6, added in the Sony PlayStation and Nintendo DS versions, defeating Foo Yung & Chow Mein, a bizzare duo of wish-granting demons, will cause the two of them to use their magic to make the World Tree bloom the impossibly rare Yggdrasil Flower atop it. This flower, which only normally blooms every thousand years, posses a resurrecting power several times stronger than anything else existing, making it capaple to resurrect even those who are otherwise incapable to be resurrected by any other means, so much so that it's a Zenithian custom to officially report the Flower's bloom, prompting Sparkie, Orifiela's pet dragon, to leave the party in order to do just that once it has been collected.

After obtaining the legendary flower, the Chosen decided to use it to resurrect Psaro's girlfriend, the elven woman Rose, who had been cruelly murdered at the orders of Aamon in order to push the Master of Monsterkind into insanity and take the throne for himself. Thanks to her magical tears, the effects of the Secret of Evolution were reversed on Psaro, causing him to repent his actions, join forces with the Chosen and, after Aamon was defeated once and for all, allow the two of them to start their lives together in the newfound world peace.

Dragon Quest V

In the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo DS versions, an Yggdrasil Sapling can be obtained by the Hero and his party in Zenithia once the castle returns airborne, as one of the Knick-knacks to be displayed in the Knick-knackatory museum. Originally in a weakened state due to the crash landing of the castle, once watered with the holy Aspersorium, this sapling of the World Tree will return to its healty state, beginning to shed a single Yggdrasil leaf every day after being watered with the Aspersorium again.

Dragon Quest VII

Yggdrasil makes an apperance in Dragon Qest VII, found on the island of Gröndal. When the party traveled there in the past, Yggdrasil hadn't achieved maturity yet; despite being already a pretty impressive tree, with its roots being so large and long that were able to extend from the middle of the forest to under the nearby village, at that time Yggdrasil was but a mere sapling known only as Ygg.

Afraid of what the recently arrived humans could potentially do to the holy tree, its unnamed guardian faerie began spreading rumours about the Curse of Ygg, a supposedly bad outcome happening should any harm befall the plant. Eventually however, servants of the Demon King Orgodemir, consisting of a Fighting batboon, posing as "The Stranger", alongside a Well wisher and a posse of Lesser demons, took advantage of the lingering fear the people had of Ygg and poisoned the well of the local village and with it, the entirety of the island's underground waterways.

The residents of Gröndal, under the influence of the Stranger, were each brainwashed into a delusion of being the Demon King themselves, and to prove which one of them is the real one, the batboon convinced them into trying to cut down the sapling before it can fully mature. Luckily the brainwashed citizens and their nefarious guide were temporarily repelled by the party, who then offered aid to the injuried faerie weakened by the poison. Healed by the Dew of Life that the youths were able to gather inside the Pixie pitcher from Ygg's boughs, the grateful guardian faerie then instructed them to use the rest of this never-before-seen copious amount of dew to purify the village well's water.

Unfortunatly, the Fighting batboon guessed their plan, and blocked the way to the well using the villagers as meat shields, forcing the party to instead traverse the treacherous underground Roots of Ygg in order to reach the watersource of the well from below. Having healed the villagers and vanquished Orgodemir's followers, the group was then rewarded by the guardian faerie with a Staff of Salvation made from one of Ygg's brances, and sweared to begin to work together with the villagers to protect the plant from that day forward. Thanks to their combined efforts Ygg was able to grow into the mighty Yggdrasil by the present day.

In the present, the party can obtain Yggdrasil leaves by going to Yggdrasil as, if they do not have any in their possesion, a blue bird (the heavily implied reincarnation of the faerie) will drop one from the tree for the party to pick up and obtain. If they already have one, the bird will not drop one. The party visited the present day Yggdrasil in order to find a Red Fragment, necessary to reach the past of El Ciclo, located at the base of the sacred tree.

They can also obtain a phial of Yggdrasil dew at Gröndal, which has built an economy selling it. However, only the Hero can get on line to buy one and, if supplies run out before the Hero gets one, the party will have to leave town and enter again to try and get another one. If they already have one, they will not be allowed to buy another.

Monsters found inside the Roots of Ygg

Dragon Quest VIII

In the region surrounding Baccarat, in the point where four statues of Great sabrecats meet their sight, a small subsidence surrounded by trees can be found. Right in the middle of it a lone, impressive tree that glows of a faint light grows there but it is only visible at dawn, otherwise invisible at any other time. Exactly as in previous titles, If no Yggdrasil leaf is present in the inventory, one such leaf can be found at the foot of the tree and can be collected. It is also required to snap a photo of this tree in order to satisfy Cameron's photo request n.049 in the Nintendo 3DS version.

Additionally the master of Chateau Felix, Master Felix asked the party the request to take a phial of Sands of Serenity to said tree, because the soul of his pet and friend Baumrem had gotten lost on his way to the afterlife after passing near the tree, unable to stop going round and round in circles around the tree. Once sprinkled with the Sands, Baumrem's soul was finally able to pass on. For this sevice, Master Felix rewarded the party with Baumren's bell. According to him in ancient times the tree was known as the Tree of Styx and due of its nature, deceased souls have an habit to lose their way around said tree.

Furthermore, once they visited the hidden village of Tryan Gully, the party was entrusted by the Elf Raya with the Darktree Leaf, a leaf that was retrived long ago by the great sage Kupas from a giant tree growing in the World of Darkness. This leaf has the power to act as a compass towards the greatest source of evil currently existing once placed on a map, which the party used to track down the Rhapthorne-possesed Sir Leopold. Due to the leaf's appearance being virtually identical to a Yggdrasil leaf, sans for its purplish color, it can be reasoned that the giant tree it came from is the World of Darkness's counterpart of the invisible tree.

While it is never stated out loud, the invisible tree is strongly implied to be this world's version of Yggdrasil. Furthermore, in Dragon Quest Heroes, Jessica, while talking about that version of the holy tree, will mention how said tree reminds her of a certain other mysterious tree back in her world, most probably referring to the invisible glowing tree, since it is the only tree that fits that description.

Dragon Quest IX

System 10-3

In Dragon Quest IX the tree has her first central role in the story, while being located at the top of the Observatory.

A beatiful tree that glows of its own light, Yggdrasil is capable of growing fruits called Fyggs, when it receives enough Benevolessence, the shining crystallization of gratitude by humans for the protection given to them by the Celestrians. These fruits have the power to make the dreams of those who eat them come true, but the wishes are granted in a very litteral manner so consuming a Fygg can be very dangerous because, if not spelled correctly, the wish will usually lead in unwanted consequences.

Yggdrasil is considered the gateway to the realm of the Almighty, as when it blossoms the Starflight Express comes to ferry Celestrians. However as the events of the story began, tragedy struck when the tree finally blossomed, bringing instead disaster in the Observatory.

The hero had to venture down to the Protectorate in order to collect several scattered Fyggs which, having fallen from the observatory during the disaster, had began spreading chaos all around the world due to their unchecked use, while also having to confront the cause behind the disaster itself.

It is later revealed that Yggdrasil is in fact the goddess Celestria, the daughter of the Almighty Zenus, creator of the world. She had transformed herself into Yggdrasil to show Zenus that even though mortals were flawed, some still had good in their hearts and as such they were worthy of life, proven through the collection of their Benevolessence and the cultivation of the resulting Fyggs.

Additionally, there is a lone tree on an island east of Gleeba where an Yggdrasil leaf may be found. The nature of this second holy tree is left somewhat unexplained.

Dragon Quest X

Yggdrasil is located on the contintent of Eltona, homeland of the Elf race, and was created in ancient times by the patron deity Eldona herself. The sacred tree has been guarded since its creation by the Leaf spirit.

Yggdrasil appears a few times during the story. Elfs held festivals for the Yggdrasil Flowers that grow, and where the soul of Goddess Luciana is revived while Miko Himea dies.

Dragon Quest XI

Dragon quest xi-yggdrasil

Yggdrasil as seen in Dragon Quest XI

Yggdrasil once more plays a very central role in the story, being the radiant tree floating high above Erdrea from which all life force is created. It is said that each leaf is connected to the life of a sentient being, budding with a birth and falling with a death. It is said that upon death, souls pass through the Void before finally returning to Yggdrasil, from whence they will eventually be reborn as a new life. Her roots are so massive that they sometimes break through the ground throughout Erdrea. All the human kingdoms worship Yggdrasil to varying extents, with Dundrasil, Arboria and the temple of Angri-La standing above all of them in terms of faith. The mermaids and all sea creatures inhabiting Nautica, while worshipping the nameless spirit of sea, are aware of Yggdrasil's importance. In fact, Yggdrasil herself made them swear an oath to aid her chosen one should they ever be in need of their assistance. However, none of them are more loyal to her than the Watchers of Havens Above, for they are her oldest and closest allies.

In times of great calamity, a leaf may give off light when it blooms so intense that can set the night sky aglow like it is daytime, signaling the arrival of Her chosen champion, given the title of Luminary. One so chosen also bears Her mark on the back of one of their hands, from which divine power can be called upon in Her service. The Luminary is also capable of interpreting the flow of memory that courses through every fibre of the tree, mostly through her roots, allowing them to observe past events in ways that others cannot, sometimes to even slighty altering them. The Sword of Light, a legendary blade forged by the Luminary and destined to be held only by him, is charged with her power and rests in the Heart of the World Tree. The Six Orbs were created by the Watchers by crystalizing the dew of Yggdrasil and were meant to be the key to opening the path to the almighty tree when placed on an altar located inside the thick forest surrounding her.

There are a few collection points that can be accessed before the end of Act 1 and during the post-game:

Collection Point
Item Location
Superior medicine Lower level at the base of small waterfall
Yggdrasil dew Lower level path heading north on the west side
Lunaria Upper level on path heading north
Yggdrasil leaf Upper level on western intersection


In ancient times, Yggdrasil was a mighty serpent, the Yggdragon; and she was the source of all light throughout creation. She fought Calasmos, a being born from the dark who resolved to destroy said light, but she was defeated and fell on a deserted and barren Erdrea, her life snatched away from her. But she came back in force with the help of her most loyal companions, the Watchers, and the lost time spirits. Taking the form of the tree Yggdrasil, She set out to make Erdrea flourish with all sorts of life, among which was Cetacea, a colossal flying whale. She also at some point spawned nine seedlings, six of which were retrived by the Watchers.

However, peace would not last, and eventually Calasmos once again threatened the world, unleashing hordes of monsters loyal to him. To counter this menace, Yggdrasil birthed the first Luminary, Erdwin, in order to defeat the dreaded Dark One, and he and his companions began travelling the world in order to stop Calasmos. At some point Erdwin retrived a cast-off brach of the the mighty tree, which would later be dubbed the Rainbough. During the conflict against the Dark One, Yggdrasil fell from the skies into ruin. After a grueling battle, Calasmos was defeated and Yggdrasil was restored to life. But the Luminary did not succeed in ending the Dark One's life, because the fiend brainwashed and corrupted one of his companions into prematurely ending Erdwin's life. Without someone able to properly wield the Sword of Light, Erdwin's allies were forced to imprison the Dark One's body in Erdwin's Lantern instead of killing him. Unbeknownst to them however, Calasmos's consciusness survived in the form of a Darkling, and he spent centuries biding his time for the right moment to reclaim his body. The sage Serenica decided to entrust the Sword of Light to Yggdrasil Herself, who enshrined it inside her holy heart.

Centuries later, sensing the imminent return of the Dark One, Yggdrasil gave birth to a new Luminary, which was none other than the Prince of Dundrasil, the same kingdom that Erdwin once called home. She also made sure that the powers of the sage Serenica would reincarnate in the twin sisters Veronica and Serena. Unfortunatly, shortly after the Luminary's birth, the companion of Erdwin who fell to the darkness, now calling himself Mordegon, attacked and destroyed Dundrasil, for he had his own plan to take over Erdrea. Through sheer luck however, the Luminary survived the massacre and was safely raised in the village of Cobblestone until he came to age. Setting out on a journey to discover his destiny, the Luminary faced many hardships, because Mordegon, possesing the body of Heliodor's king, began relentlessly pursuing him.

After crossing all of Erdrea, gathering a posse of loyal companions, the Luminary and his party finally reached the Heart of Yggdrasil where he was supposed to be bestowed the Sword of Light. But Jasper, an Heliodorian knight who was enthralled by Mordegon, intercepted the party and used his master's dark mockery of one of the Six Orbs to severly incapacitate them. The brave Sir Hendrik tried to stop him but he was ambushed from behind, not knowing that King Carnelian, who was accompanied by, was possed by Mordegon. The demon lord leaft the body of the king for the first time in nearly two decades, and painfully stole the power of the Luminary. With it, he tricked the Heart in letting him take the Sword of Light, which he promptly corrupted into the grim Sword of Shadows. Using the Sword, he pierced the Heart and through the weapon he absorbed the Heart's everlasting life, transforming himself into to a monstrosity. With a mighty explosion of darkness, the tree was no more and she came crushing down on Erdrea, with disastrous consequences for the land. Fortunatly the Luminary, Sir Hendrik, King Carnelian and the rest of the party were able to escape the explosion thanks to the sacrifice of Veronica.

Without Yggdrasil, the cycle of death and rebirth was interrupted, the souls of the dead forever trapped in the Void without a way out of it, were they would slowly flicker out of existence. Yggdrasil's crash sent earthquakes across all of Erdrea, killing countless of people. To further increase the number of victims, Mordegon began brainwashing monsters all across the land, driving them into a murdeous frenzy while also sending his loyal servants to spread misery and shadow across Erdrea. To mock the holy tree even more, Mordegon constructed a horrifying, dark flying fortress to replace the floating Yggdrasil. Mordegon also made sure that nobody would challenge his dominion, so when Calasmos's Darkling tried to reunite with his body, Mordegon used the corrupted Sword of Light for it's original purpose and destroyed the Dark One's vessel, leaving his spirit powerless.

Unknown to him however, some of Yggdrasil's power still lingered inside some of her roots, her seedlings and inside of the Luminary himself, though the young man initially believed to had lost it for good. After reclaiming his birthright and reuniting with his companions, thanks to the guidence of three of Yggdrasil's seedlings the Luminary forged a new Sword of Light and set out riding on the back of Cetacea to end the Lord of Shadows. After a vicious battle he succeded even reclaiming the Sword of Shadows for himself. The defeat of Mordegon releases the Heart's power, restoring Yggdrasil to her rightfull place, and Erdrea with it. Though the scars left were deep, new plantlife began to flourish again across Erdrea, announcing the return of peace.

However, unsatisfied by the great toll the battles took, the Luminary decided to travel back in time to prevent the fall of Yggdrasil to ever happen. Armed with the knowledge of the future and the Sword of Shadows, the Luminary was able to best Jasper, foiling Mordegon's plan and claiming the Sword of Light as it should had been. Unaware that the Luminary knew his true identity, Mordegon tried multiple times to get a hold of the weapon but each time he was stopped by an unseen force. He finally lost his patiance, and revealed his true form, only to meet a resounding defeated. But the festivities were cut short, because the unseen force was none other than the Darkilng, who had hitched a ride to the past with the Luminary. Without Mordegon to stop him, the Darkling reunited at last with it's body, and the Dark One of old finally rose up again just as Yggdrasil feared.

After consulting with three other seedlings, the Luminary came to learn the identity of the foe he was born to defeat, the origins of his nemesis Mordegon and the means to pierce the Dark Ones's barrier. He also communicated with the last three seedlings, which were used by the warrior Drustan and his Watcher companions to host trials to test and increase the new Luminary's strength. As powerful as they could they ever be the Luminary and his party faced in combat Calasmos, vanquishing him once and for all.

Some days after the fall of the Dark One, the Luminary, Veronica and Serena, decided to return the Sword of Light of old to it's resting place inside Yggdrasil's Heart. Upon doing so, the heart showed to them a vision of Yggdragon herself. After retelling her story she solemny bestowed upon the Luminary the title of Erdrick, mightiest of heroes. She then disappeared but not before warning that the darkness would inevitably one day rise again, but she was sure that, even if the night should consume her, a hero would appear to take the sword in hand and defeat the evil force.

A series of somewhat ambiguos flashfowards seems to indicate that the world of Erdrea will eventually evolve into the world of Dragon Quest III. While this would explain some of III's mysteries, such as the origins of that world Six Orbs, it leaves the fate of Yggdrasil or Yggdragon herself ultimatly unknown.

Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below

In this world, centuries ago, the balance of light and darkness was kept in check by an unnamed goddess of light and Shadroth, a draconic deity of darkness, alongside the two human tribes associated with them, the Children of Light and the Children of the Night respectively. However, as soon as the balance slightly tipped in favor of the darkness, Shadroth betrayed the non-aggression pact he signed and tried to take over the world. After a grueling battle which costed the goddess her physical body, the Lord of the Night was put in a deep slumber and imprisoned deep beneath the earth; however, his own darkness would had eventually awoken him if something wasn't done to prevent it.

To counter this, the mighty and gigantic tree Yggdrasil was created to act as a filter, absorbing Shadroth's darkness through her roots, convert it to light in her trunk and then release it in the air through her boughs. Additionally, the roots became an irreplaceable source of nourishment for the soil. Around the base of the tree the flourishing capital of the kingdom, the city of Arba, was constructed. The reduced influence of darkness also rendered monsterkind tame, ensuring peace and collaboration between them and the humans, elves and dwarfs. Both the Children of Light and the Children of the Night retired to live peacefully, secluded and hidden from the larger outside world.

This new balance lasted for centuries until a member of the Children of the Night, Velasco, a powerful but insane human sorcerer obsessed with darkness decided to free Shadroth, who he considered his god, completly massacred his own people and then centuries later, once he found their hidden location, did the same to Children of Light, almost succeeding in wiping out the latters with the exeption for two survivors. In order to achieve his goal, he had spent the last 500 years in creating a spell to upset the balance of light and dark, a spell that continuously absorbed the energies of darkness from all across the multiverse of realities and released them all across the world.

This sudden surge of darkness drove monsterkind into a frenzy, putting all of them under Velasco's direct control. Furthermore, if not stopped the magic ritual would also had lead to the destruction of all different dimensions. To combact this apocalictic disaster the dimension-hopping sacred bird Empyrea, began transporting heroes from other worlds to the Kingdom of Arba to aid the surviving Children of Light in their struggle against the maddened sorcerer.

Velasco ordered the monsters to cause as much chaos as possible across the land while also using them to open a path to Yggdrasil's Crown, a shrined altar between her boughs that acted as the heart of the plant. He was intercepted by the heroes and their allies from other worlds, but by taking advantage of a sacred barrier placed around Yggdrasil's Crown that prevents anyone not belonging to either the Children of Light or the Children of Night to come any closer, Velasco was nontheless able to poison The Crown with pure darkness while also capturing one of the two last living Children of Light, knowing that the well-being of the plant was directly tied to the one of the Children of Light and that by corrupting at least one of them with darkness, the tree would further succomb to her malady. The poison began slowly killing Yggdrasil, weakening the seal of Shadroth.

Fortunatly, after rescuing their companion, the heroes were able to save Yggdrasil's life just before her death by using the dew of the Tree of Life, another sacred tree and progenitor of all plantlife. But the seal at that point had already been weakened so much that not even Velasco's own death and the interruption of the darkness-aborbing spell could stop Shadroth from reawakening.

Once he rose to the surface, his first and foremost desire was revenge towards the plant that had kept him sealed for eons, so he began marching toward Yggrasil together with the rest of monsterkind, who had inevitably fallen under his control after Velasco's passing, to attack and destroy the giant tree, which not only would have meant the ravaging of Arba's capital but also the destruction of the world.

But the heroes, after safely evacuating the city and weakening Shadroth thanks to the power of the Circle of Light, were able to destroy him once and for all. Without his nefarious presence, monsterkind returned to their peaceful ways and balance was once again restored to the land.

Dragon Quest Builders

In this alternate version of the events of Dragon Quest, on a small island near the city of Rimuldar, accesible through the Green Teleportal, an Alfegardian version of the Yggdrasil tree can be found.

Yggrasil rests in the middle of a poisonous swamp, but thanks to the various Filter fountains placed around it's trunk, the tree itself is surrounded by a small stretch of clean water. Originally the site was home to the Alefgard's Sanctum but due to the Dragonlord's attacks, the building was completly destroyed. From it's rubble however the sacred tree sprouted and grew to gigantic size, imbued by the life-giving power left behind by the shrine. Unfortunatly due to the various plagues infesting the land of Rimuldar, the humans of the area began leeching away it's power more and more, for they needed its energies in order to survive, until the tree was reduced to a mosty withered husk.

The area all around the tree is a giant rocky graveyard stalked by Skeleton soldiers and people all terminally ill with the blight that Gerontius's apprentice, Illius, had accidentaly created while misguidedly trying to defy death altogether, doomed to turn into undead zombies. In the past, around this same area, the remains of the knights of old Rimuldar took a last stand aganist the giant Hades condor that was poisoning their land and spreading diseases, but their efforts were however met with failure, which resulted in the destruction of the old city and now only the ruins of their old fort could be found.

Searching for the means to cure their friend Elle from the malady which otherwise would had eventually turned her into an undead, the Builder travelled to Yggdrasil where they met the lingering spirit of the wise sage Thalamus, the all-knowing. After recounting to them the sorry tale of the tree, Thalamus teached them how to create a Transmutation Table and revealed that in order to create the medicine they were seeking, the Builder needed some Holihock, a curative plant that once grew thick around the base of Yggdrasil before it began to wilther. Fortunatly Thalamus had cut and safely hid the last plant inside a stout stony vault not too far from the tree, protected by a Blue dragon. Thanks to the seeds obtained from this last plant, the Builder was successful in growing more Holihocks, which were then likewise successfully used in saving Elle's life.

Curiosly, if the Builder pokes a hole into the trunk of Yggdrasil at base level, a small room with a pool, another Filter fountain, some sconces and a bathtub with a glass window can be found.


Yggdrasil comes from Norse mythology. It literally means World Tree and it is the metaphorical "back bone" that supports the nine realms of the universe upon its branches.
