Roots of Yggdrasil is the first area of Eg-Lana and the beginning of the game proper. The player will be treated to a short cutscene upon entering for the first time. Roots of Yggdrasil acts like an early-game hub with numerous gates leading to connected fields - players can expect to return here regularly.
