It is known as the town of the dead. Although the town has the same accommodations as a normal town such as weapon shop, armor shop and tool shop, monsters freely wander about the town as well. Nifflheim consists of one town map and 3 fields. A creepy atmosphere envelops this town that is infamous for the disappearance of thousands of adventurers. Since so many have already failed to investigate this area, any future adventurers had better prepare themselves for the journeys in Nifflheim.
Note: If you die in town you WILL lose EXP! Be careful when idling there!
After conducting much research, Scholars have concluded that the famous Tree of Umbala might be a part of the legendary Yggdrasil Tree. They began to wonder where the tree may lead them. Rumors of an incredible fortune at the end of the tree were spread amongst the adventurers of the Rune-Midgarts Kingdom. It wasn`t long before brave fortune seekers started traveling into the Umbala tree. One by one, they entered with hopes of finding a dreamland where they could find vast riches. Strangely enough, they never came back. Alarmed by the number of missing people, Tristan III, the King of Rune-Midgarts, ordered his troops to find out what happened to them.
Many Priests, Crusaders and Knights ventured inside the tree of Umbala in order to investigate these mysterious disappearances. Unfortunately, the few that did return seemed traumatized and had vacant looks in their eyes as if their souls had been wrenched from them. They were asked many questions, but they always replied incoherently:
"Dead...everything`s dead over there....f-freezing..."
Tristan III realized that his troops alone may not be able to investigate this matter, and started to encourage the adventurers of Rune-Midgarts to explore the Umbala tree to find answers. He sent some of his guardian knights to support the adventurers that would aid his cause. The Prontera Sanctuary, by order of Tristram III, sent Priests and Crusaders to lend their assistance. Well experienced Sages from Juno`s Schweicherbil Magic Academy also joined the throngs of adventurers to explore and investigate what lay beyond the tree of Umbala. The adventure to explore the legend of Yggdrasil had begun.
From Umbala, dropping from the middle platform near the top (138,199) has a chance to warp the player to Nifflheim. If it fails, the player will drop to the bottom of Umbala and can try again. If it succeeds, the player will be warped inside a house within Nifflheim with all HP depleted. One strategy is to use an Acolyte class to memo the drop point, and have the Acolyte warp the player back to the top from the bottom of Umbala.
