The Gate of the Ray of Hope is originally the gate of the Wall of Horror facing Greatwood Forest, transformed by Dracor Scaleflame, using the surrounding people to gather enough power for such a massive spell.
The gate and the nearby walls are entirely different from the original wall - the walls are white, the gate has an Elvish pattern on it, and the entire wall is imbued with magic, causing it to be hardly destroyable. The archer's can fire through miniature rifts that connect the inside of the wall with the outside. These rifts let them see the outside, but from outside, enemies can not see or shoot through them.
In the archers' path on the top of the wall there is a magical orb right above the gates. This orb controls the two dragon statues outside the gate, which seem to be alive and ready to attack anything that attacks them or the gate.
