Spawning works differently in Empyrean. The world spawn serves only as a waypoint for the recall skill until a bed is set. Rather than going to spawn, upon death a player is transported to the nearest active Pagoda.

The world has an origin point that can be found by crafting a Corruption Meter. The further from this origin point one moves, the more corrupt the world gets. In more corrupt areas, you can begin to find iron, jade and even diamond, but the enemies also become much more difficult ot kill, and much more powerful. in low corruption areas, enemies are weak, and only ores up to copper can be obtained.
