Bergen is a small, snowy village near the top of Mount Bergen. It was founded next to a temple of the Ancients to turn it into a mine and exploit the resources inside. The large building north of the village was once used as an inn but is now used as the town hall and place of reception.
Bergen Village is a maze of narrow alleys and tightly-clustered buildings. At the north end of the village, a large plaza holds a teleporter that is connected to CrossCentral. Just north of this is the village's main building, a former inn around which the rest of the village was built. It is currently used as a greeting hall.
While all the main areas of the village are immediately accessible, several sub-areas are tied to quests. The Cave of Aspiration is unlocked during the Trial of Aspiration quest, the Cave of Progression is unlocked during the Trial of Progression quest, New Mine #1 is unlocked during the Explosive Debugging quest, and the Omni Gilders Basement is unlocked during the Pushing Bases quest. The Holiday Man Cave is only unlocked during the date- or Bonus Code-locked Gifting for Fun! quest.
The regions adjoining Bergen Village are Bergen Trail via Bergen South, Temple Mine via Temple Mine Entrance, and Maroon Valley via the sky rails in Diving Railway. The Ye Old Inn Teleporter in Bergen North connects directly to CrossCentral in Rhombus Square.
Bergen Village shares most of its destructible botanics with Bergen Trail. The Sprout of Valor rare destructible is on top of a roof in Bergen South. You must travel south on the rooftops from the Bergen North to reach it.
Bergen Village is the first destination of Seekers following the Track of the Ancients. The village was originally a mining town, gathering resources from Mount Bergen. However, after their mines broke into and destroyed a temple of the Ancients, the Track began to fight back, taking over the miners' equipment and overwriting the mine with a new temple. Seekers arriving in the village are required to meet with the Mayor, after which they are permitted to access the Temple Mine and seek out the Heat element. They are asked to retrieve lost mining equipment as they do so, in the plot-related but non-mandatory Digging Up the Past sidequest.
Lea reaches Bergen Village and attends the mandatory briefing with the mayor. After, she is contacted by Emilie and Lukas and invited to join Lukas's guild, the First Scholars. After visiting the guild, Lea and Emilie return to Bergen and head to the Temple Mine for their second dungeon race.
The next day, Lea passes through Bergen Village again on her way to Maroon Valley, and is briefly contacted by C'tron.
