Rumor spread throughout the Forests of Caldavar that a new relic had been conjured by the crazed alchemist Nome. The artifact radiated a rejuvenating aura that soothed even the deepest wounds from battle. Now, with the war for control getting increasingly intense, both Hellbourne and Legion desperately tried utilizing the unique item and quickly added it to their arsenals.
