Zone map

The Spires of Arak storyline is the level-up experience in the Spires of Arak. Players are led here from their faction outposts in Talador. The Adherents of Rukhmar are waging a war of extermination of the cursed arakkoa, and one of the first things that players see is the Skyreach superweapon obliterating Veil Akraz!

The storyline tracking achievement is called  [Between Arak and a Hard Place] and has nine chapters. The chapters are somewhat interleaved, as the zone storyline does not play out linearly.
