- For the settlement of the same name, see The Sea of Dread.
The City of Spires on the northwestern coast of Ind was founded by the High Elves of Ulthuan. Also, the Fortress of Dawn, Tor Elasor, the Tower of Stars and the Tower of the Sun are High Elf ports and fortresses that guard the sea routes through the Sea of Dread to the Kingdoms of Ind, Cathay and Nippon. In particular, the Tower of the Sun is an alabaster fortress that watches over sea routes across the southern ocean, and acts as a staging post should the armies of Ulthuan need passage to the lands of Ind, Cathay and beyond.
- Eye of the Vortex
Tor Elasor is the first faction for Malus Darkblade to fight and takeover in the Vortex campaign. Last Defenders and Clan Mors are also close by and will likely need to conquer their islands to protect their coastal settlements.
When playing this faction (requires mods) the first thing to do is to kill Malus Darkblade, so the first thing to do is to defeat the black arche ... After get back to Tor Elasor recruit a lot of basic troop and wait. Malus will try to get your minor colony so recruit a second army and defend this colony, you'll probably lose this battle which is okay but do not forget use the ambush because it's the best way to kill the druchii and then advance in the jungle.
