Somnus Returns from its Slumber

Strange Lands Limited Time Branch: Somnus Resurrection

Somnus Returns from its Slumber

Chilly Greetings, Dragon Lords!

The arcane evil of Somnus trembles and shakes off its blanket made of night and sewn with cat-gut coils of suffocating gothic terror. Yuck! Somnus is back in black, baby - and ready to cast its shadow over the bases of Atlas.

Somnus leads the first ever Resurrection Wave, formerly known as Wave 2. The Strange Lands Resurrection Wave not only contains the Somnus Resurrection Branch, but also a Mini Cosmic Orrery branch, and Tower Levels 128-130.

The Resurrection Wave content will contain a 20% increased prizing boost for weeks 5 and 6 (this week and next).

Let’s learn a little bit more about Somnus’ return.

The Somnus Resurrection Branch

The branch will contain the initial Dragon Egg at the Red Tier, and then Evolution Stones from Purple > Artisan Tier. If you already have Somnus or do not need a particular Stone, you will be rewarded with an alternative prize instead.

The branch will cost 37.5k sigils, and contain 6 season keys and 2 ascension tokens.

We have made some small changes to Somnus’ spells to give it a fighting chance in contemporary Atlas. We have noted those changes in Somnus’ spell kit below.
