    Default Missive 8

    I got missive 8 in wheloon on lamaland from a random encounter to escort a priestess to shar manor. She then opens the locked basement door.
    Anyone find a close to set location on where the random is located? Been trying few hours a day since expansion launched and can't get her to pop.

    If I recall correctly, we encountered her at the exit of the "Friends in Low places" quest.

    One of her spawning points is Harvest Hall. The fastest way to find her is to use the teleport option to Harvest Hall in Wheloon, then recall, reset and repeat if she isn't there. If she is there, well escorting her to the manor is really painful, but it can be done.

    I'll give that one a go. I have been invis and running around so it's not like recall reset repeat will be any worse lol.

    Not worth my time. I gave it a shot. I entered, ran to Harvest Hall, recalled, reseted over 50 times in one hour and no priestess appeared. Not worth for missive #8. Worst of all is that I ran past same rare encounters several times (Salitre, Zastra, Garggalor) and same random encounters several times (Food Supply, Big Bullies, and Bigger Bullies) but no priestess. Very pathetic and lame.

    It took me 30 seconds max per run in an invisible mode (to see how rare other rare/random encounters to compare with priestess).

    Yeah I'm beginning to feel that way also, but my OCD in me is telling me i need that last missive.
    I'm probably close to 1000 reset repeat slay runs. But hey atleast I don't need slayer anymore!

    EDIT: And found her. Literally right on top of her when spawning into harvest hall. Nice 10 minute fight to shar manor.

    On a different note, I have "heard" if you complete the heroic missives instead of epic it still completely fills out the map. That one might be easier if less xp then the epic one. I don't know if u can mix and match missives between the two. All I know is since epic is complete the heroic ones not even showing anymore.

    And don't forget to have your friends hold the instance open so you can swap to all 20+ alts who like to have the maps complete.

    It took me about 15 minutes of constant teleport, recall, reset and repeat to find the priestess in Harvest Hall and then 10 more minutes to get her to the manor.

    If you're so unlucky that you can't find her after nearly an hour, I don't know what to tell you.

    I do agree that this is very bad design and that explorers should never be tied to a rare random encounter. Tying it to an encounter like Sil that seems to happen about 50% of the time would still have been a bad idea imo, but still nowhere near as horrible.

    I have no idea what whoever designed this was thinking, tbh, or why people testing this content on Lam didn't tell the devs what a horrible idea this was (or, if they did, why the devs didn't listen).
