    Question Wheloon Journal 8?

    Tried searching the wiki and the forums but to no avail:
    In the heroic Wheloon prison, how do you get the 8th Journal explorer? It's behind a "securely locked door" in the mansion (according to the wiki) but I can't seem to find the key. I found A key with the random rare 'nothing ventured nothing gained', but that opened a different door of the mansion.
    Am I doing something completely wrong, can that door actually be picked with mundane methods (playing a druid ATM)? Perhaps does that rare give one of 3 random keys?
    And help would be appreciated!

    I'm still trying to find it, too. On epic I think the wiki comment is that one of the encounters causes someone to lead you back to the manor and through the locked door, but I have yet to find that encounter. I've come across the other one, several times, that gives you a key.

    I have found the random encounter you need to access #8 on heroic. I believe it's "Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained" given to you by Nil. I have yet to find the encounter for epic. There is a thread somewhere on the topic and I haven't checked it recently. If I find it again, I'll post a link to it here.

    I too found that encounter (on heroic) and got the key, but it was the wrong key. There are 3 locked doors in the mansion. I tried the door with the journal, but it didn't open - then after I used it in the correct door the key disappeared.

    Perhaps the note pages for that encounter spawn behind one of the 3 doors randomly and to get the journal you just have to hope it's the right one?

    A nice way to get the rare to spawn is by teleporting into the Harvest Hall. Wait there and see if the priestess (forget the encounter name) spawns. If you don't get the encounter to spawn, just recall out and reset. Einse and repeat until you see her. Then escort her to the manor where she unlocks the door to the basement. Number 8 is in the manor basement

    This is incorrect. Nil gives you a key to one of the rooms in Shar Mansion but it is not to the room that holds the 8th missive

    Having had the same issue, the Morninglord rare encounter which gets you into the basement of Shar Manor only appears after you do the quest "Friends in Low Places."

    Once complete, just zap into and out of Harvest Hall with the teleport (resetting the instance each time) until she appears, then escort her to Shar Manor. Note that since she stops to melee everything, it's a lot quicker to first run to Shar Manor and kill everything on the way, then go back for her.

    Thanks for the correction. I found it in post #25. Its the key that is found lying around and the map in the post (and I think its now on the wiki) has possible locations where it might be found.

    It is not the key that is found on the ground. Have another read of that thread

    lol. Yeah. I'll stop posting. I guess my mind isn't working very well this weekend. Sorry for the confusion folks. Thought I was being helpful. Look at the post that was provided. I'll stop trying to summarize it since I seem to be failing utterly.

    I think some of the confusion here may be because some people are talking about epic and others are talking about heroic. According to the wiki, missive 8 is found in the morninglord priest room on epic and in a different area of the manor, presumably the one you get into with the key from that Nil encounter people keep mentioning, on heroic.

    I found this post from Ubernocitude on the Mature Guild's forum
    here : http://www.themacguild.com/forums/sh...w-to-get-to-it
    After spending hours trying to find a key that would open the missive 8 door, I found it easyli with Aldara's help
    So thanks a lot to you Ubernocitude

    Just in case there are others who cannot find Missive #8 in Wheloon Prison, here are the convoluted steps to get to i
    • 1) This Missive is in a Locked Door in Shar Manor. There are random keys that can drop anywhere in the Wilderness Area, but NONE of these will open it.
      2) There is a random encounter named Assist Morninglord. This is a woman named Aldara Morninglord that wants you to lead her to Shar Manor.
      3) The only place I've seen her spawn is behind the gate in the south of the map. When you finish Friends in Low Places, this is where you come out.
      4) The only way to get in this gate is to have done Friends in Low Places at least once (or have someone in your party who has done it).
      5) The area behind the gate is called Harvest Hall.
      6) There is a Harvest Hall Liasion teleporter sitting in the Wheloon town area that will teleport you in there if you have done Friends in Low Places. You can keep teleporting in over and over until Aldara appears.. that's the fastest way to get her to spawn.
      7) Once you get her to spawn and you can get into the gate, she wants you to escort her up to Shar Manor.
      8) However, she is like the King's Forest villager you have to escort to the gate... she will stop and fight everything on the way, even thouse little tiny rats you can barely see. Be prepared for a frustrating escort to Shar Manor. I don't think she can be killed so at least you have that going for you.
      9) Once you get her to the door, she'll go in and you'll get an XP bonus.
      10) When you are in Shar manor, there will be several fights as you head to the East side of the manor on the ground floor. Keep making your way east and you'll come to a locked door eventually... Aldara should run up to it and open it.
      11) This is the room with Missive #8. However, you will have another fight that is part of this random encounter. I would suggest finding the Missive and clicking on it in case you get killed. Night Hags and those new beholders pop in here, so it is not a cake-walk of a fight.
      12) You'll get a chest and more XP if you kill everything.


      There it is... just 12 simple steps to get missive #8.

      All the other missives do not require anything special other than finding them.
    ABBYdoll : Blond Brain - Huge butt (don't stay behind or you will see nothing)
    ABBYhawk : No Brain - Big Muscles (never trust him)
    Fyros : A noob with a Great Heart (have no expectation and you will be happy)

    to get the heroic #8 you need to search for the key on the ground which can be anywhere. the key from nil is a random encounter that only opens a door upstairs, and the morninglord escort is for the epic area
