The Scenario areas of Summoners War consist of thirteen special regions which are part of the game's main storyline. To progress through the main story, the game requires players to complete each area in successive order, with each area becoming increasingly more difficult. To complete an area, players must battle their way through six stages, with each stage consisting of three rounds of monsters; the last of which is usually a special more powerful version of one of the monsters in the stage. A seventh stage also exists for each area, and similarly also consists of three rounds of monsters, although the last round requires defeating a special boss. Completing a stage awards a player with experience, mana stones, Runes and occasionally some energy, Monsters, and crystals as well.
In addition, each area also consists of three modes of difficulty: normal, hard, and hell. The higher the difficulty, the better the rewards for completing a stage. Only normal difficulty is unlocked initially, so players must finish an area once in one difficulty before they can advance to the next one.

Initially, only Garen Forest is unlocked, with the rest being unlocked as players progress through the main story by completing the area available to them. Each area consists of seven stages, with each stage consisting of three rounds of monsters which must be defeated in battle in order to clear the stage. The last round of each stage consists of a more powerful version of a monster found in that stage, with the seventh stage consisting of a boss. Players are allowed to carry up to four monsters with them in battle.
Additionally, each area has three modes of difficulty available to them: normal, hard, and hell. Each difficulty consists of harder monsters for each stage, although better rewards and more experience is also given for completing a stage. Only normal difficulty is unlocked at first, so players must first finish an area in normal mode to unlock hard mode, which must also be cleared to unlock hell.
The amount of experience awarded to each monster in battle after completing a stage depends on the scenario area and the difficulty the stage is completed in. In general, the later the area is unlocked, and the higher the difficulty mode, the more experience awarded. Stage number also affects experience, with higher numbered stages sometimes awarding more experience, although this will depend on the area and difficulty of the stage.
The amount of experience awarded is divided among all the monsters in battle (excluding monsters belonging to friends), so having less monsters in battle will result in more experience awarded to each monster, at a cost of making completion more difficult. Note that less experience is awarded if players lose all of their monsters in battle before the end, with the amount depending on how far in a stage players advance and how many enemies were defeated.
Each scenario area drops a specific rune type, with the stage number of the area determining which slot the rune occupies. While each area has the potential to drop runes from a grade of 1-star to 4-star, generally the higher the difficulty level, the greater the likelihood of finding runes of a higher grade. As a general rule, stages in normal mode give 1-star runes at minimum, hard mode gives 2-star runes at minimum, and hell mode gives 3-star runes at minimum, with a good chance at a 4-star rune or 5-star rune with least chance on boss. The following table illustrates which runes are available in each area.
