Dereth Exploration
Level: Any
Rec. Level: 150 (to obtain 100 markers)
Type: Solo
Starts With: Sean the Speedy
Starts At: Holtburg at 42.3N, 33.7E
Repeat: Non Repeatable

Overview

The goal of this quest is to find Exploration Markers that have been placed at different locations all over Dereth and its surrounding islands. Some Markers belong to a particular theme (ex. they are found near Festival Stones) but some are completely random locations.

The quest culminated in 100 total markers during the 10th anniversary patch. The reward for all 100 is a global with your name plus a 30 slot backpack.

Walkthrough & Notes

  1. Speaking with Sean the Speedy will allow you to start using the markers.
  2. Find the Exploration Markers.
  3. Return to Sean once you find 10 lots of markers for your rewards. Explorer titles are rewarded for every 20 markers, and special titles are rewarded for finding themed markers (listed in brackets).
