Lost Lands Part 1 is live
The first 67 cards from Lost Lands, the 4th Shadow Era set, have now been released onto live server as a mini-expansion (Lost Lands Part 1). They can be found in Lost Lands booster packs or from the in-game Merchant when other players have sold them to him, in version 3.10 onwards.
Click here for Lost Lands Card List.
At the end of that list, you’ll see the new card type, Location, which comes with its own set of rules, which you can find here.
In the coming weeks, we’ll be bringing you Lost Lands videos and articles, so stay tuned!
Lost Lands Preorder Deal
In advance of public test server and eventual live server release of Lost Lands Part 1, there is a preorder deal on ShadowEra.com.
It’s probably going to appeal to newer players the most due to the 30 packs from sets 1-3, but the extras on offer (epic avatar, colored global chat name, sleeves and playmat) and gold value from selling any spares should make it an appealing deal for most people.
Spoilers from Lost Lands (Set 4) So Far
Over the past ten weeks, spoiler articles have been released for Shadow Era’s forthcoming 4th set, Lost Lands, including 29 spoilers.
The articles are well worth a read (#1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, #8, #9), but if you just want to see the spoilers, then we’ve assembled them here for you.
These are rather under-represented in the spoilers so far, but that has tended to be the way for all sets, so let’s not panic just yet. This is Shadow Era, after all.
A total of seven Shadow allies have been revealed so far. Let’s take a look.
Yes, Shadow Era will finally have some fully neutral allies, including a predominantly neutral tribe in the shape of the Aldmor.
Also new to Lost Lands, we have a brand new card type, of which six instances have been revealed so far:
It’s been hinted that artifacts will play a much larger part in Lost Lands than in any other set. Here are two such items spoiled so far:
One Shadow ability and two Neutral abilities have been revealed so far:
If any of those cards don’t make sense to you, the associated articles should help out!
As more cards are revealed, we’ll update this post so be sure to bookmark it and check back each week to see what’s new!

Shadow Era’s 4th Set Announced
July 1st was quite a day for Wulven Game Studios, making two major announcements.
The first was about the upcoming release of version 2.91 (more here).
The second unveiled the name and an overview of the set that’s currently in closed beta testing.
According to the announcement, Lost Lands is a set based around the themes of ruination, resurgence and rediscovery, where the landscape of the game as we know it will be changing and shifting, with its characters on the move, intentionally or otherwise. This will be achieved primarily through the introduction of a new card type: Location.
Two other spoilers were shown in the announcement, both for allies from the Aldmor alignment, who represent the first revealed fully Neutral allies in the game (there will be 20 Neutral Allies in total).
For more information and see the community reactions, head over to the official website.
