The Bastion Stair is a Chaos fortress in the The Chaos Wastes controlled by Khorne, the blood god which resembles a colossal wall with giant steps leading into the sky. It is one of the major Khornate bastions, and the site of the Rift of Rage, a powerful Chaos Portal. The Rift of Rage is threatening to corrupt the World of Warhammer with its cursed winds of magic. In WAR, the Bastion Stair serves as a difficult end-game PvE Dungeon and the source of Bloodlord armour set gear.
Bastion Stair consists of three wings, and is suitable for a group of 6 characters between 33rd and 39th level.
Any who wish to enter the Bastion Stair must risk madness and search for it within the Chaos Wastes.
''"I seen it, clear as the nose on my face: a towering fortress that weren't of this world. The place reeks of doom. It's heavy on the air, and it ain't easy to breathe. As if that weren't enough, you can hear the distant cries of the dying as the Blood God's lackeys put 'em through unspeakable torments.
"I didn't go in, no. I'm not that brave. I'll take my chances out here with the Daemons and the Chaos storms and the madness, thanks."'' -- Dolph Venwald, Empire Soldier
The Bastion Stair is a place of Chaos, stained with the blood of countless dead. It is the domain of Khorne, otherwise known as the Blood God and the Skull Lord. The winds that eddy forth from the Stair carry with them the stench of death and decay, a terrible reminder of the fate that awaits the unskilled or unwary. There is rumored to be a corrupting rift within the Bastion Stair that is open to the realms of Chaos, but few have returned to put the legends to rest.
"We bring skulls and blood for you, oh Master. We lay our gifts at your bloodied feet. Gift us with death this day, for our only wish is to die in your service." -- A Prayer to Khorne
