Since I'm still learning my way around as a VIP, I had gone to Menechturun and only recently found out that I missed the Restless Isles. Found out about it from the main quest line in the Harbor (Hiding in Plain Sight I think?). Anyway, usually I really enjoy the "wilerness areas", and love filling in the map as I go.
Unless my game is messing up, Restless Isles does NOT work this way, and its bugging me. Is there a map to speak of at all? It seems that more than half the time I'm underground, and lost. Frankly, it all looks the same to me, and yet I'm supposed to be able to navigate this place. There are also enemies dropping things that I have no idea what they are for.
Still having 5 explorer locations to find in the huge world of "Sands", these "Isles" are obviously not what I was expecting. I assume that I have to do something here to advance the man story line? Do folks have any advice regarding how to navigate this place? Should I just map it?
I know that on the Wiki there are maps, but I like to play the game full screen and not have to be switching in and out all the time.
I remember years ago from Everquest that there was an atlas that you could purchase. Is there a DDO atlas for sale somewhere? I've looked online and can't seem to find one, which surprised me. As a wizard it is most helpful for me to know where the shrines are.
Thanks for your advice.
