When you tap on the Map button,

Map Button.jpg

located in the bottom left of the screen, you'll be sent to the World Map showing you each of the provinces that you currently have access to.  Each province then consists of up to 10 stages which must be successfully completed in sequential order to progress to the next stage.  Completion of all stages within one province opens up access to the next.


A typical province consists in 8-10 stages:  6 regular, 1-2 mini-bosses, and 1 outpost, where the outpost serves as the final stage in a province, successful completion of which grants you access to the next province.

Some provinces have a bonus chance to drop a particular ingredient or ascension material.  Tapping on that item in your inventory will produce a popup that displays which ones.

Season 1

Season 1 consists in 23 provinces and culminates in the battle with the Dark Lord.  You may expand the table below and select any particular province for more information.

Season 2

You can switch between season 1 and 2 maps when you reach province 15 of season 1. The switching button will appear at the top left corner of the map screen as soon as you reach Province 10 of season 1. However, the button will be locked until you reach province 15 of season 1.

Completing stages in Season 2 differs from Season 1 by offering Atlantis Coins as a reward for your first completion of any given stage.  Each stage also has a Normal mode and a Hard mode, with Hard mode offering a more substantial quantity of coins.  Season 2 provinces also lack mini-boss stages and outposts, but have special stages where unusual battle conditions are in place.

Small Giant Games released 3 provinces of the map each month until April 2019 for a total of 27 provinces. The map changes in appearance as you progress through the provinces. It starts with an open vortex in the center, which gradually gives rise to the city of Atlantis.

Season 3

SmallGiant Games released 3 provinces for Season 3 each month, the first three on February 27, 2020. Completing a stage for the first rewards the player with 3 Valhalla Coins on Normal difficulty and 5 Valhalla Coins on Hard difficulty (similar to Season 2). The map can be accessed after reaching Season 2 Province 15.

Provinces in Season 3 share elements with provinces in Season 1. There are stages marked with wings that have elite enemies, though not elementals; other stages indicate that enemies possess a realm bonus unique to the region the province resides, such as the Midgard bonus.

Season 4

Introduced on March 25, 2021, SmallGiant Games unlocked 3 provinces to the fourth season. Completing stages for the first time rewards 3 Underwild Coins on Normal difficulty and 5 on Hard difficulty. The Season 4 map becomes accessible after reaching Season 3 Province 15.

Unlike previous seasons, each province is settled in a Biome; biomes introduce new challenges for players, in that certain heroes receive an undispellable buff every 5 turns, while others obtain an uncleansable debuff. For example, the Sandy Caves biome apply a +50% attack bonus to Holy heroes and a -50% accuracy to Dark heroes. Enemies are unaffected.

Additionally, enemies within this season have innate resistences and are able to spawn Underwild Gems, which deal damage to the player's team until they are matched.
