    Default Drop rate

    In some recent notes it was mentioned that the drop rate for the key was increased due to the type of exp you're having. All the of explorers are easy to get but that #8 behind the locked door in the Shar Manor.

    After they increased the drop rate a party member found the key at the southern drop point and we hustled our toons thru to get #8 before finishing the chain.

    Is the key on the ground or do you have to talk to an NPC who has the key?

    Default 2 keys.

    1 key was on the ground (Mysterious Key see below) in the southern part of the map and the other key we got from Nil. However you only need the random key that drops to get missive #8 and can skip Nil if you want to. I just had to see it all so I did the Nil quest. Now after TR'ing I cannot find the darn key again : ))

    Mysterious Key

    A key appears in random locations lying on the ground. This key unlocks the first floor west side door in Shar Manor. The only thing of value in the two rooms inside is Oraphaun's Missive #8 on Heroic. (Edit, don't forget to get missive #17 while in there. You don't need the key for that one and I think its on the 2nd floor.)

    If this got fixed, I think it got re-broken. I just did maybe 70 or so runs in Wheloon, checking the 3 known-to-me key spawn points (the 2 on the wiki map, plus along the main path between the main entrance and Shar Manor), and had no luck whatsoever. I used to find the key much more frequently than that.

    Devs, can someone check on whether the key is spawning correctly? And if it's broken, add it to the Known Issues until it's fixed?

    I have found all the missives in heroic (and epic) wheloon recently (since January 1st) so if it's broken it's a very recent break.

    I wasn't paying attention to where I found things though so can't help there.

    Do you remember finding the key, and if so, where? I KNOW where the missive is...behind the locked door. :-) I've found them all myself, on previous lives, but never had this kind of trouble looking for the key.

    Thanks for the explaination, and thanks to the OP for asking. This clears up a lot. I must have checked the wiki locations 25x on heroic before I gave up (~1 month ago).

    The escort mission is both on Heroic and Elite and opens up a hidden missive that can only be gotten that way.

    Keep taking Harvest Hall into Wheloon till you get the chick to escort.

    Not correct. There is a missive in the room she opens on Epic, but though she opens the same room in Heroic, there is no Heroic missive there.

    For Heroic, there's a missive on the opposite side of the manor, in the wing opened by the key that should be found lying on the ground out in the prison.

    Is there any good reason why the devs made the key is so hard to find? Normally I like doing explorers in wilderness areas, but this one is just frustrating and not a bit fun.

    It's a nod towards the rare in Restless Isles where ya have to run a quest every time you want to check the spawn site.

    Now that you mention it, I think the last time I found the key was shortly after coming out of a quest.....

    Is that the requirement? Huh. I'll have to re-run one later and try that.

    You just have to grab an item from Slavers to open the spot in Restless. It's pretty easy to quickly run straight to that item and ignore the rest of the quest.

    True point. But *technically*...

    Yeah, after 4 hours or so of searching, I'm getting a little ticked myself.

    So...do you have any specific reason to believe that's the case here?

    I just did 5 or so key runs, from a quest, and still no key.

    I don't specifically remember whether, on previous lives, I found the key immediately after a quest or not. Can anyone confirm with hard data one way or the other?

    I have not found it either. At least on Epic, once you have opened up Harvest Hall, you can enter and check if she spawns, and reset. Think the most resets I had was a dozen before she popped.

    With herioc I have not found a key either, even after quests. Now almost back at cap, I still pop into herioc once and a while and check the locations. I feel like I am missing something, some other trigger on the map.
