To initiate the Old One's Army event, an Eternia Crystal Stand must be placed first. The player can build up to a height of three tiles before blocks are considered obstructing the necessary space. A minimum clearing of 10 tiles vertically is required (i.e., between the "floor" and the "ceiling", if there is one). It has a range of 19 tiles (1 tile is the center, and 9 on each … What about T2 and T3? Like the previous tiers, enemies will get significantly higher stats, and some will also get new designs. The enemy portals will spawn further away if given the space however, up to 120 tiles away from the center of the Stand on each side. Still haven't fought the army.

As the presence of water does not impact terrain requirements, an arena filled partially or completely with water can allow use of certain mounts or items to allow increased 3-dimensional mobility. Any pre-placed sentry-style enemies in the arena despawns when the event starts but the ones that does not consume Etherian Mana can be used freely after. Platforms and inactive blocks do not count as part of a flat floor, and will count against the three-tile height allowance; but floor blocks with Actuators on them that are solid when the crystal is placed will count as flat, and can be successfully actuated after the event has started.

An effective strategy is to use a close-range sentry, like the Lightning Aura or Explosive Trap at the portals and a long-range sentry like the Ballista or Flameburst closer to the center. It is easy to get overwhelmed when fighting the enemies coming from both sides, so the player should constantly move to the left and right of the Crystal in order to prevent the enemies from reaching it.
