Electric Lab thumb.png

Electric Lab is a large, multi-level laboratory marked as "Fort" in the north eastern part of Abrassar, which is the source of many Golem enemies.

The player can trigger the minor quest Arcane Machine if they successfully navigate the elevator puzzle inside. The unique item Werlig Spear is also found here.

The exterior area of the Fortress contains a one-way drop to the rest of Abrassar desert, at the back of the area.


The Electric Lab was used to create many of the Golems found in the world of Aurai. Originally this was an attempt to fight back against The Scourge, during the near-apocalyptic war around a century ago. Curiously, a mask resembling those worn by Blade Dancers can be found deep in the laboratory, along with a mysterious red crystal, similar to the green one found at Dark Ziggurat. This suggests that Levantine artisans may have been inspired by the Plague Doctor's technology, or the Jade Lich himself was involved here.
