Your first stop, after leaving new trismus, should be the racial town of kion. In fact, if you are just starting out, you will prolly only get to port to kion – all the others should be unavailable. That is because these days you have to attune to a lot more places than you did when I started playing. But we will get back to that later.
So, take the port to kion, the city of the saris and my fave city in the whole of istaria. You will have need of becoming very familiar with the environs and suburbs of kion as you level, but for now, let’s get to the dragons you will need to know.
First thing, you will want to pay a visit to gerix, the beginner level dragon trainer for the city. The dragon is very easy to find! From the port pad, turn until you are facing the large fort. Run up the road and thru the gateway. Slightly to your right, you will see the vault building, with the dragon trainer perched on top.
Speak to the trainer and you will get a multitude of quests suitable for making a hatchling into a less noobie hatchling. I, however, have already done most of them, but gerix was able to offer me one quest I can share with you, and that I would have needed to do eventually anyway. This is a brand new quest – there isn’t even an entry for it on the wikia page. So I show it to you thru screenies! Gerix would like you to pay a visit to the dragon city of chiconis. Your quest journal, in one of the rare times, will not be overly helpful. This is a quest that relies on your map reading ability and most prolly massive amounts of assistance from your elders. Do not be afraid to ask for it! In future posts, we will get there with a few important stops on the way.
Before you leave, you might want to become familiar with xarinnis, the dragon crafter/trader in kion. This trainer has no real quests to give, but sells all the forms a beginner dragon needs for crafting. Xarinnis is located on the roof of the manor house on the hill, between the two southerly roads out of town. From the port pad, take the southern road past the shrine, until you come to a fork. Directly in front of you is the manor house, and you can see xarinnis on the roof as you approach. Go up onto the porch – to your left is a doorway. Just inside, you will see a ramp heading up on your right. At the top, make another right and head out the door. There you will greet the dragon trader and have the opportunity to purchase any forms you might be interested in.
That’s it for kion! Next time, we will head to bristugo with a couple stops along the way to get you attuned to other places you might need to get to from other ports. Come back soon!
