Sword Art Trivia
Yui stated that there are dungeon to the north, south, east and west of Alne and that each of their deepest areas are connected to Jötunheimr. Super strong evil-god-class monsters prowl Jötunheimr, and since light does not reach it, the flight ability of players cannot regenerate there. Thus, it is the game's field with the highest difficulty.
This episode's topic is the "World Tree Assault Mini War Council". The conclusion made during the discussion was that all races should join together for the battle.
