once you are finished with kion, you will be wanting to do some exploring, which is good. But why not explore with a purpose? With that in mind, let’s go on our first attunement tour! You will be doing a few more, later, but there has to be a first time for everything!
The most important place in the world, porting wise, is bristugo. But you notice that it is unavailable to you, as a new player – showing as unavailable in the portal listing. In order to change that, you have to take a long run, and we will make it even longer, cause I am gonna have you attune to a couple other places first!
From kion, you need to take the southeast road. This is not an easy path at your probable level – the path runs by greymane wolves and sand pygmies and ogres, with some skeletons and spiders for spice. There is no shame in banding together with other newbies, or asking for help from higher levels. Death points at low levels are highly annoying.
Anyhoo, keep running down the coast until you pass the lakes of crystal tears, where the sand pygs live (you will be coming back to the lakes for some quests later), until you reach a bridge. Next to the bridge is the lower bridgeview guard post, manned by private asenath. Speak to the private and become attuned.
Now, you could continue on over the bridge, and you will need to cross it to get to brist, but while you are here, might as well get attuned to sslanis, as well – you will need to anyway, as you will have quest duties in the area. So keep running on the coast road. If you are on blight, you will know you are getting close when you see the lighthouse vel built singlehandedly. I am quite proud of that lighthouse, and lobbied to get a name change to ‘the queen’s tada’ (a long story) – in vain, of course. Soon after the lighthouse, you will begin to see signs of a city on the road. Just before you enter the city proper, you will meet one of the sslik guards, kerrak. Speak to it and you will become attuned to the stone city.
Well, brist has been my recall point since way before the new attunements, so I just recalled back to brist from here, but you will need to run back to the bridge, cross it, stay on that road until you reach the outskirts of the port city, go past the portals, and down the hill to the fort and shrine area. On the porch of the little house next to the shrine, you will find sergeant jonis. Speak to him to get attuned to bristugo. My advice is to take a moment to bind to the shrine and make bristugo your recall point. You can get almost anywhere in the world (well, okay, as long as you are attuned) from there!
But brist, while important, is not chiconis, which is where we need to be. So, next time, I will show you how to get there!
