Foothold is a meta event that takes place in The Silverwastes. In it, the players must take and fortify four forts in the area: Red Rock Bastion, Amber Sandfall, Blue Oasis and Indigo Cave. Once all the forts are captured, the players must increase all their defense levels by escorting supply packs to each forts, increasing the supplies to those forts. In this stage, the 'Defend and protect' event and 'Repair the fort's walls' event will follow each other up, until the third and highest level of defense is reached. At the same time, the Pact readies its assault, indicated by a Pact Assault Preparations gauge. Once it is filled, the event ends, all the outposts are immediately captured by Mordrem again and The Breach begins.
When the Pact controls an outpost, there is a chance to spawn a legendary boss to aid the Mordrem assault. Each boss will always spawn near the same fort:
- Red Rock Bastion: Legendary Mordrem Annihilator, a husk. Spawns just west of the fort, has very high armor and mainly damages players in melee range.
- Amber Sandfalls: Legendary Mordrem Executioner, a troll. Spawns just north of the fort and attacks with insect swarms, which deal a lot of AoE damage.
- Indigo Cave: Legendary Mordrem Demolisher, a teragriff. Spawns just north of the fort and charges players for knockdown and very high melee damage.
- Blue Oasis: Legendary Mordrem Tormentor, a thrasher. Spawns south of the fort and steals health.
- Seize and defend forts in the Silverwastes to help the Pact prepare for their assault on Mordremoth.
