G9 Title.png
Chapter 3 Mainstream Icon.png
  • To start Generation 9, you must have completed Generation 3, or reached a cumulative level of 300(?) and talk to Duncan about storyline change.
  • Many of the Generation 9 quests are Shadow Missions. You cannot take on more than one Shadow Mission at the same time. You are allowed to quit a Generation 9 mission to do a normal mission without penalty; simply talk to the NPC involved to restart the Generation 9 Shadow Mission.
  • Some Shadow Missions let you choose a lower difficulty setting. These missions are obtained from the Mission Board near Taillteann Headquarters.
  • Important: Doing another player's Shadow Mission will also count for yours. This can be important for the higher levels. A few Missions, however, are exceptions.

Generation 9: Alchemist is the start of Chapter 3. It introduces Alchemy, the town Taillteann, and the return of the Fomorians who dwell about in the Shadow Realm.
