As Ragadam has corrupted the planet, he escaped to Levania to continue his corruption. However the hero will not let it be and set on a hunt, while they need their Companions to go with them. After crossing dark ruins you will find friendship in your Companion Marcus living in the village near Anderra. After saving him from hands of Evil followers of Ragadam and clearing the lands, he will join your side. You both have decided that you need the healer living in Anderra.

Anderhelm is a fortress placed between the two mountains of Wailing Peaks and Severed Mountain. After killing Magroth there, you need to unite with one more ally - Robin the Archer. She is imprisoned by Ragadam's Broken Dragon and you keep on the journey. When finally reaching the dragon you take her down and join Robin.

You then get back on the surface and travel the desert to the old ruins of an ancient civilisation that lived on this planet. Clearing the town and passing by The Legendary Wall to the even more Legendary City of Malador, where Gorlak has already arrived. After making your way there and killing him, you enter the Crucible. Killing Elban there, when however it reveals the fact that you are too late and that Ragadam has already set on the journey to corrupt whole universe - the whole Eternium.
The story will be updated when Act 4 will comes out.
- Story mode had only 2 acts until 2015. This leads to many theories that Act 3 would bring Ragadam as the final boss to the game, but he was moved to later updates. With Act 4 released in August 2018, final boss was yet again moved to further act.
- Act III was added on 8th July 2015.
- In the beginning of each Act, your hero says the words: "I will hunt you Ragadam, across the worlds!".
