The episode starts with another look back over the last episode, in which the Spectral Knights were formed, and were left in a prison cell which had just been flooded. Back in Darkstorm' chamber the Darkling Lords squable over how to divide the bootie. As Reckon voiced his disgruntled feelings Cravex goes ones further, hitting Lexor for being a coward, backhands Darkstorm for being greedy, throws Reckon across the table for being a mercenary and a liar, yells at Mortdredd for being a bootlicker and finally hits Cindarr out of principle.
Whilst the Darkling Lords fight the Spectral Knights escape from their prison, thanks to Arzon. Ectar then takes Feryl back to the Dagger Assault, and replenishes his magical totem. They all then meet up in Darkstorm' chamber, where the Darkling Lords are still fighting each other. After realising that the power staffs are all drained of their magic, the Darkling Lords flee, followed by the Spectral Knights, who gain control of the Capture Chariot and Lancer Cycle.
After a battle between the two sides the Darkling Lords are captured., but before they can be placed in prison Merklynn appears and gives them a key, allowing them to escape. In the meantime the Spectral Knights travel to Merklyn' shrine, in order to help some farmers who' crops are not growing.
During the trip the Darkling Lords ambush them and steal back their power staffs, getting to Merklynn before them. An argument erupts in the shrine between the two sides, and is only stopped when Merklynn tells them that they must go on a mission for him in order to re-charge their magic. He allows them to re-charge their staffs for free and the Spectral Knights leave. The Darkling Lords have other plans, and attack Merklyn, although their power staffs cannot harm the holder of the orb. The Darkling Lords are then dealt with and sent on their way, with the Spectral Knights, to get the Dragon' Claw.
The Visionaries are then left to work together to gain the claw, under the leadership of Leoric, from a Technodragon, controlled by the legendary wizard Folkama. After defeating the dragon the two sides battle for the Dragon' Eye, which is a staff, until finally the Spectral Knights return it to Merklyn. They bargin with Merklynn and finally get him to help the farmers, whilst the Darkling Lords capture Folkama.
