The Island of Dawn has come back as a new zone for level 65s! It’s a new open world area optimized for solo players, including tanks and healers. There will be BAMs ranging from levels 65 to 69 residing in their own area. Killing these will complete Vanguard Initiative Requests and reward players with Enchanting Materials, Vanguard Initiative credits, and a new Token!

How do I get there?

Once a player reaches level 65, they will receive the story quest “Ominous News” to talk to Seir in the Valkyon Federation Headquarters in Velika. Seir will send the player to the Island of Dawn. Players can use a Pegasus, Teleport Scroll, or a Village Atlas to the Island.

What is on the Island?

Once they turn in the initial story quest, they will receive 4 Undercede Tokens, some gold, and begin a chain of yellow quests, starting with “Adria’s Suspicion“, that will explain the story behind the new Island of Dawn and introduce you to the BAMs that they will be encountering. An additional story quest will unlock at the same time, “Desolate Garden“. You can follow the yellow quest chain at the same time as the story quest. Completing Desolate Garden rewards the player with a full set of Slaughter gear and T1 Still jewelry plus some additional enchantment materials and emeralds.

There are 9 types of BAMs on the Island, classified as Low-Level, Mid-Level and High-Level (3 BAM types in each group). An item level requirement exists for each group of BAMs in order to receive Vanguard quests. The Vanguard quests require killing 10 of one type of BAM and reward players with Feedstock, Cede Tokens, Vanguard Credits, and Gold based on the difficulty of the BAM. In a party, each BAM kill will only count for one player. Killing a BAM that you have no Vanguard quest for will not count. These Vanguard quests are not repeatable until the next day, and the game will assign a different BAM type after each completion until the player is done.


Island of Dawn BAMs drop the HP and MP motes typical of other open world BAMs, however there is a special yellow mote, called Keening Dawn Mote, that increases your crit factor and crit power significantly for 1 minute, but the effect disappears if you leave the island. Take advantage of them to speed up your kills!
