This technological masterpiece draws all attacks, protecting fellow combatants from damage. In battle, they are to be found on the front lines and work well as tanks.

The Rune Shield Tower located in the Katalam Underground can be entered starting at level 65. The Steel Wall Bastion Battlefield is located in South Katalam. Six more instances also await in the upper Abyss region and are suitable for players between the levels of 61 and 65
A little history lesson: the Mech and its role in the faction war
Once the Elyos and Asmodians discovered the Petralith energy core they immediately began to research new weapon types. With the aid of the schematics and the parts collected from the Sauro War Depot, they finalised the machine components and extracted the energy sources from the Id technology provided by Hyperion. The result was the Aethertech’s Mech, Elyos and Asmodians both share the opinion that the Aethertech is a new turning point on the field of battle.
