TURN OFF PRECACHE SETTINGS THEY ACTUALLY MAKE THE FPS HORRIBLE.

Mind you that when a video will inevitably appear, it'll have serious story spoilers so you are warned.
One of the best things about this map is how you can just casually launch it, no need to summon anything at the start.

A great final map for the set. It's a complete departure, but the previous map already gave a good climax to the "normal" G59 gameplay, so the shift works, and the new stuff you get is satisfying to use. The Drakk textures also work great and give an original flavour for the ending stretch (weird issues with certain graphics settings aside). The boss encounters are also good, although I only played on normal so I don't know how they change in the higher settings. Even outside the text issues with it the ending felt slightly abrupt given all the epic visuals and set-pieces throughout (including just before with that last Jrath moment), but I guess actually showing more of what is told in the ending would be extremely difficult. Too bad the settings performance issues hurt the playability a lot the first time I played this map, but at least there's a solution to it.

Originally I had in mind that after the exit point of Atropos, the player would be teleported into a vertical blue vortex and fall down in a sorta epic fashion with the King congratulating/cheering you for the victory and future. At the end of the vortex a white light around would glow and the map would end afterwards. Didn't bother because I didn't want to screw around with the geometry (it reached critical mass with the amount of nodes).
