Linkgate Foundry was a solo instance for players of level 65 and above. It was a hidden Balaur research facility where much of the technology used in Beritra's Grand Invasion (Aion 4.7, 4.8) was developed and perfected. The entrance was located in Levinshor.

In this instance, players have 20 minutes to collect keys and slay one of three difficulty versions of the final boss. The boss monster can be challenged anytime, and is not affected by the hidden timer. The difficulty of the final boss and thus its loot depends on the amount of keys gathered (1, 5 or 7).

The instance was a primary source for Ancient Coin <Ancient Coins> as it could be 'rushed' (collect 1 key and face the boss in Easy Mode). The amount of Ancient Coin <Ancient Coins> was not really affected by the difficulty of the final boss, although players who collected all 7 keys had a chance to obtain an Eternal Ancient Manastone or an Empyrean Plume Chest in addition to the usual spoils.

In the 6.0 update this instance was removed from the game.

This secret laboratory was used by Tiamat's scientists to make research on transdimensional transportation. After her death, Beritra took over her project, utilizing her findings to create portals for his grand scale invasion on Atreia. However, the side-effects of this science proved to be potentially dangerous. Belsagos, a creature of unknown origin, exited from a portal. Its power may cause not only the destruction of the lab and the research performed, but their recent advancements into the new land of Levinshor.
