Crusade is a 2-player PvE scenario that can be played on Standard, Advanced and Expert difficulty. It is part of the campaign story The Search for the Gods.

Defend the search expedition that has found a trace of the missing gods.


 "Brannoc, Master of the Forge, said to be both powerful and wise, was the first and only leader of the Skylords installed by the gods. He had forbidden any to involve themselves in mortal struggles, instead ordering all to search for the missing gods.

History points to the irony that it was not Brannoc’s almighty gaze which found the missing gods’ trail, but the mortals of Lyr. The very same mortals who would have been dead, had all Skylords followed their leader’s command. And even now, creatures cursed with the Twilight taint surrounded them, attracted by the artefact they had discovered."

— The Aedai Chronicles

Brannoc found he had returned to his old home once more. The leader of the Skylords walked its borders, sad the building had been shattered by the giants. He stopped between two stone pillars which had marked the doorway. Between them little Viridya had played and Meanen, his beloved wife, had stood to call him to supper. He ran a hand down one of the columns, feeling rough that which had once been smooth.

His battle with the giants and his invention of Giantsbane, the black powder that fuelled the cannons, had made him Master of the Forge, first among the Skylords. But it had also cost him dearly; his home, his wife and in the end the love of his daughter. And to what end?

Brannoc’s gaze shifted to the skies; he had to find the gods! He was not alone in his quest, mortals had begun to search as well. Fools! What could their feeble senses hope to uncover? But there was something to them now, a stirring of power that would one day have to be investigated. For now though, more important tasks required his attention.
