"Xarabydun, founded in 11 PY, is the headquarters of the Arcanum - a group of scholars, alchemists, and mages who conduct research for the betterment of Dereth. The first human settlement here was below ground, in the Yalaini grottos of Laeraa. Deep inside, Arcanum scholars discovered one of the Seaborne Empire's archives, filled with thousands of Empyrean tomes. These tomes have been the source of many of our advancements throughout the years. In 13 PY, the Arcanum built research facilities on the surface, and many of their finest alchemists, tinkerers, and mages may be found here." --Town Network Sign
- Xarbydun was an ancient Empyrean ruin which the Arcanum discovered during the Hollow Victory event. It used to be completely underground, only accessible via portal by those level 25 and under.
- In Hidden Vein, the Arcanum Consortium was built above ground from Xarabydun, with NPCs there for various interaction in the Nuhmudira's Boon, Isparian Arms, and Bronze Statues quests.
- In Festivus, Ulgrim the Unpleasant wanted to sample the brew in Xarabydun's bar, so, logically, he destroyed the portal and dug a tunnel down to the town. And thus it's level restriction was removed. With various updates to the Harbinger and other quests the Arcanum Consortium has seen more updates.
- In Evolution, a new vendor arrived selling directions and ingredients for making Alchemical Throwing Phials.
