The might of Rome threatens Aeternum from February 21 to March 7. Hunt down General Crassus' monstrous captains and banish the shadow of Roman tyranny in an all-new event. Following a plan set in motion long ago, Crassus' forces have invaded the southern lands to unleash the cyclopses Lucanus and Decimus. Players brave enough to face these world bosses can search for portals in Brightwood, Weavers Fen, Mourningdale, Ebonscale Reach, and Edengrove. Each victory nets Adventurers event-specific, daily rewards.
Crassus has fallen, but his most loyal soldiers vehemently carry on a final mission — an invasion of the southern lands. Are they in pursuit of conquest, revenge, or something far more sinister?
The Corrupted Legion transforms the land into barren dirt, mud, and dust. Tall banners extend upwards and small fires burn along the ground. Elite Legionnaire soldiers patrol the perimeter while a Signifer Nerva casts a spell in the middle. Moments later a portal opens...
Crimson eyes glare through the magical abyss. They blink simultaneously, yet grow farther apart. Every mighty stomp amplifies their size and ferocity. Water ripples, tents collapse, and even bears in neighboring regions scurry away from the chaotic quakes as two hulking figures barbarically emerge to a deafening silence.
Lucanus and Decimus, Crassus’ cyclops captains, raise their arms. As their massive weapons extend skyward, the shadow of Roman tyranny creeps ever closer to consuming Aeternum. This is the remains of a General seduced by corruption. This is the Legacy of Crassus.
Triumph over these level 66 vicious brutes for event-specific items like Lucanus weapons and Decimus armor, plus standard weapons, armor, and consumables. Note that players must deal at least 1000 damage to receive rewards.
Daily Bonus Rewards

Daily rewards reset at 5 AM local time. For example, if a player grabs one special cache at 4:58 AM, they’ll be able to earn another at 5:01 AM.
Players will receive one of the following rewards each time they fell Lucanus and Decimus. Unlike daily bonus rewards, players can slay the world boss multiple times in one day for additional rewards.
