After reaching Altus Plateau head out to Wyndham Ruins.

Step 2: Move from Altus Plateau to Mt. Gelmir

We recommend players level up to rune level 80 at least to take on some tough enemies and bosses as players will encounter a couple of bosses in this area. Enemies and bosses here are a lot more tough than previous areas.

After reaching Wyndham Ruins head to the ravine west of the ruins until you reach Seethewater Terminus site of grace. Head south until you reach Fort Laiedd. 

Before venturing further, prepare yourself for a boss fight. An extremely difficult Magma Wyrm is hiding in the pool of Lava spewing from the volcano. You will also find Iron Fist  Alexander in the lava interacting with him will progress his quest line. You can either fight this boss or run past him as it is an optional boss. Continue in the same direction as before until you reach the Hermit’s Shack. 

Step 3: Reach Hermit’s Shack

You will encounter a Runebear descending from above to attack you, as well as a couple of demi-humans. Runebears are ferocious enemies with a large pool of hp and strong attacks that will stagger you unless you have high poise. You can also find Roiling Magma sorcery on a corpse inside the shack.
