Spoiler warning: Contains plot elements from Curse of the Mistwraith.

Ocean world Dascen Elur
Left unwatched for five score years
Shall shape from High Kings of Men
Untried arts in unborn hands.
These shall bring the Mistwraith's bane,
Free Athera's sun again.[1]

The West Gate Prophecy was given by Dakar in Third Age 5061, and caused the Fellowship of Seven to directionally seal the Worldsend gate through which the High King refugees fled from the Mistwraith. The prophecy comes to fruition in Third Age 5637 when Arithon and Lysaer are exiled from their splinter world, eventually reaching the West Gate in Athera. The "untried arts" refers to the elemental mastery bestowed upon each half-brother at birth, and the remainder of the prophecy refers to their efforts in Curse of the Mistwraith where they fought the Mistwraith to containment.
