View Full Version : Finding entrances?

03-15-2010, 11:23 AM
I know there is probably an easy answer to this but I cannot find it. Where can I find some help in the compendium or the wiki that will tell me where entrances/starts to quests are? For example I recently purchased tangleroot gorge and had to ask on the general chat where to go to start it. Is there a map or something somewhere that shows where to start things you can purchase like tangleroot or shan to kor?

There isn't a lot of in-game help for this. You can:

1. Open the adventure compendium and mouse over the quest name, looking at the "In" information. However, be aware that it gives you the name of the tab under which the quest will be found in your quest log once you take it, which may not always be the exact location of the quest entrance itself nor that of the quest giver (although it is often the case). Of course, you may not know the quest's name, which wouldn't work for that ;)

2. Once you have taken a quest, when you select it in the quest log it will make the entrance icon flash on your map. Of course, you need to take the quest first ;)

3. Recently, some message boards were added. Read them as they will typically tell you about new areas to go and explore.

4. There may be a map of Stormreach somewhere. I'm not sure though, but have you looked for one? (I mean forums/ddo wiki, not inside game)

5. Take some time to wander around Stormreach talking to NPCs and see where they send you. It doesn't take long to memorize where is everything.

The search engine of your choice often helps. But I agree, when I was new I wandered around quite a bit on the search for Tangleroot. Those wilderness areas are kinda hard to find in the beginning (*thinks of Reaver's Refuge*)

This list of maps (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=99331&highlight=map+shop) won't help finding it but will help once you get there.

This Quest Guide (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=137347) may be helpful too.
