Krampusnacht 2018

The Krampus Gate has been left open. Strange things shudder and lurk in Yule.

Krampusnacht is once more here! From 12 December 2018 to 2 January 2019, you can enjoy all of the festivities involved in the Winter Holidays.

Krampus haunts the world, Hel awaits in Niflheim and Agartha both, and unusual seasonal champions have begun to make themselves known, all while Phoenician activity is on the rise.

Behold a winter wonderland! Starting December 12th through January 2nd, Krampusnacht returns to Secret World Legends!

Elusive, powerful creatures have emerged from the shadows in strange sightings across the world; it’s up to you to hunt them down and get to the bottom of their appearance! Accept bounty missions from the Paragon activity board in Agartha to begin your task.

These special champion enemies may require some extra leg (or brain) work to coax them from hiding.

Additionally, the Krampus Gate has swung open once more, ushering an invasion of a foe most hairy and vile: The Krampus! Spawning around the world, you must defeat them and take the battle to Niflheim itself!

The Winter Holidays of 2018 bring with them all 2017 Krampusnacht contnet as well as an entirely new series of champions that require more unusual sleuthing to summon and solve, as well as an entirely new investigation mission never before seen in either The Secret World or Secret World Legends!

In addition, two new ♦️5 Agent Missions concerning vampiric beings have been added: The Hopping Dead for Dragon players, and Strigoi in Brooklyn for Illuminati players. Both missions have the potential to reward Agent Vanity Reward Bags and serve to offer these two factions an equivalent to the Templar-only mission, V is for Vampire Soup.

For those who adore cats, achievements, or both, two new pets have been added to Dr. Caligari's achievement store: the Kitten Carrier available for 300 Third Age Fragments at 4500 Achievement Points, and Rooibos' Kitten Carrier available for 600 Third Age Fragments at 5500 Achievement Points. Using them causes many cats to follow you. It's absolutely adorable.

As of the patch, a Faction Drone will appear to you when you pick up an item from the Remote Auction House accessible as a Patron!

With the start of Krampusnacht comes the return of the Winter Cache! If curious about caches, our Cache page may be of aid.

See the Official Krampusnacht 2018 Announcement, as well as the 12 December 2018 Patch Notes for the event!

An in-depth Event Guide for the Winter Holidays is available with all information pertaining to it!

Update 2.3.0 - Dark Agartha

Something terrible has happened in the World Tree. Something claws, something eats. All is eaten, all is eating. Madness lies at the end of the world.

Dark Agartha is now open.

We stand at the end of all. Chaos and darkness reign, the ravaged remains of Gaia now infested with extradimensional interlopers known only as The Wandering Others. Something, or someone, has called upon you to enter this timeline and race to the end. At what cost, or for what reason, is unknown. It’s up to you to discover the truth.

Dark Agartha is accessible once you reach Level 50. To begin your expeditions, visit a Bounty Board in regular Agartha to be assigned a mission that guides you to the entrance.

Dark Agartha is designed to challenge a player's skill and ability to adapt in an ever-changing world. A unique timed boss gauntlet of 5 bosses and a default time of 17 minutes, Dark Agartha changes every day to provide new challenges to the bees who trek into its time-stream.

It costs 7 AP and 15 SP to attune yourself to a Dark Agartha and begin the fights within, but the rewards are well worth the sacrifice. Through Dark Agartha, it is possible to earn Elaborate Glyph Fragments, which 300 combined form an Elaborate Glyph Imbuer, allowing glyphs to go from the 3-pip Intricate to the 4-pip Elaborate!

Your first complete run of Dark Agartha will give a full Elaborate Glyph Imbuer free! In addition, the first run you ever run has the cost of AP and SP waived!

Additionally for the 2.3.0 patch, Item Power calculation has been fixed from a previously unnoticed bug. Pips now affect Item Power, with lower pip counts giving lower Item Power. Despite the calculation changes, your actual damage remains as it was and has not been nerfed, nor will you lose any Elite difficulty access should the changes place you below a necessary IP threshold you previously met.

For more information given by Funcom, see the official Dark Agartha Deep Dive and the 2.3.0 Patch Notes!

A TSWDB in-depth guide of Dark Agartha itself is in-progress and will be coming out in the future! Information concerning the various modules and bosses will be available as soon as possible!

The Dark Agartha Legend is complete and available in its entirety to read! Learn the truth, sweetlings!

Dark Agartha was originally hinted at over the last month with a long story chain known as The Conquistador involving Jerónimo de Montejo within the Agent Network!

Update 2.2.2 - The Envoys of Avalon

The Druids themselves have come to the Hollow Earth! With the Equinox upon us, they have deemed ot safe enough for some of their member to leave the hidden mists of Avalon and take root in Agartha.

Worried for the safety of their home in the long-term, they have collaborated with the Council of Venice to bring to life a new form of scenario: the Occult Defence. Survive endless waves of enemies while defending a central point! The higher the wave reached and the more waves reached in a single run, the better and more numerous the rewards!

There are even new legends to learn and Agents to acquire to commemorate the occasion!


The Council of Venice have agreed to utilize their virtual reality system for a new combat simulation: Occult Defence of Stonehenge.

Your mission is deceptively simple: Defend the Hagstone, the ancient artifact laying at the heart of Stonehenge. This artifact draws power from the the world’s ley lines and works to conceal and protect Stonehenge and the Druids’ home from danger. Should the Hagstone’s integrity be compromised, it’s fission mailed – so keep it together!


On each equinox, the druids of Avalon send their envoys to forge alliances with other Secret Worlders. For a limited time, you’ll be able to find Druids of Avalon in Agartha as they help usher you to the training simulation. Discover event-exclusive legends and get a chance at special loot, including agent dossiers. Seek them out in the center of Agartha!


With the release of Occult Defence and the Envoys of Avalon comes new agents for you to command! Opening a Druids of Avalon Agent Booster has a chance to contain new Agents or Gear Reward Bags!

To see all of the new Agents added and how to acquire each one, check out the Agent Network Master Guide or search each Dossier separately!

Check out the official release announcement for more information and check here to read the patch notes!

The Legend Lists for Stonehenge Simulation and The Druids of Avalon are both available!

Learn more about the Envoys of Avalon and what they have to offer with our Envoys of Avalon Event Guide, out now!

Update 2.2.1 - Missions New and Old

Our Factions once more have need of us! Three missions originally available in The Secret World have returned! Now dubbed Faction Ranking Missions, they provide unique challenges in the form of scaled content where you choose the difficulty you want to run it on! The higher the difficulty, the greater the rewards!

Alongside them is a new Legend set, a Faction-specific agent - the Faction Quartermaster - whose identity depends on which Faction you are, the fourth Agent Mission slot, achievements, and the ability to reach Faction Ranks 11-13 and reap their associated titles and uniforms!

There is also something new in South Africa. A new sabotage mission, Public Enemy Number One, has been added to New Dawn. Completing it will also unlock a new side mission, Eavesdropper. With their addition, the meta achievement "Land of the Dawn" can be completed and its delicious Guise of the Kongamato can finally be earned! There will be more to come to South Africa in due time.


Looks like you’re moving on up, agent. Faction Ranking missions are now available – are you up to the challenge?

Once you’re Level 50, are finished with at least the entirely of the Tokyo storyline, and have an Item Power of at least 250, a new series of tasks become available, allowing you to increase your standing within your Faction! As they say, nothing of value comes for free: You have to show some backbone and commitment – you have to proveyourself!


In addition to Faction Ranking missions, those agents infiltrating New Dawn in South Africa may access one new Sabotage mission titled “Public Enemy Number One”. Who’s been keeping an eye on you within the compound? We suppose you’ll want an answer.

In addition, the Agarthan Cache has re-entered the Cache rotation, replacing the Anniversary 2018 Cache as of 1 August 2018.

For more information on the Agent Network, see the Agent Network Master Guide.

Check out the official announcement for even more information and read the patch notes for this update here on the Funcom forums!

Full guides for Public Enemy Number One, Eavesdropper, Into Darkness, Venetian Missile Crisis, and Rogue Agent will be available soon!

The new Legend Faction Conflict is up!
