daily quests, part 3 - delivery to bristugo

lumberjack narvis' other quest (and i do recommend you do them in this order, altho you are not required to do so - but it does save a run back to sable shores......) is a delivery of elm construction timbers to bristugo's master builder, builder tirrish.  don't worry - you don't have to make the timbers, you just have to carry them to bristugo (if you haven't attuned to bristugo or made it your home shrine).

if you aren't already at the wws, get to it and approach narvis (notice the ! above his head, as you know indicating an available quest).  when you greet him,  if you have already done the 'behind' quest, you will notice that it is not available.  listen to his tale and check your quest journal for details - and check your inventory for the goods!  sometimes, there is a lag before the goods getting loaded to your inventory, and if you take off for bristugo before that, the quest malfunctions and you lose it for the day.

once you are sure you are ready, head to brist.  i can recall, but if you can't, you can just retrace your path back on the roads you used to get to sable shores.  anyway, once there (assuming you recalled - if you have to, start at the shrine), you will find builder tirrish down the right (west) fork of the main road leading to the portal pads., at the foot of the hill where the fort sits.  if you don't see the ? over his head, the quest is borked.  greet him to deliver the timbers and get your reward (obviously, since there is no real work required on your part, the reward is substantially less than narvis' crafting quest).

 

when next we meet, we will explore an example of an adventure quest, as a start to an exploration of a subset of such types of quest.  more about that soon!

daily quests, part 2 - behind on my quota

as you can see from greeting master tan, he has two quests to offer.  today, we will look at 'behind on my quota', an easy crafting quest.  you need to harvest 200 elm logs from the forest behind (north) of the wws.  after receiving the quest, head for the nearest elm tree and start whacking away.  remember narvis' warning about the beetles and skulks - they won't be much of a problem to mid or high levels, but 20s and under would benefit from bodyguards or co-questers.  

once you get the notification that you have enough logs to satisfy narvis, return to the wws and give your bounty to the grateful lumberjack.  he will reward you with 15 silver (nothing to sneeze at!) and 2000 xp for your current crafting skewl (for example, i didn't change out of the fitter construction skewl before taking the quest, so that is the skewl that received the xp reward).

 

there we have the first tan/daily quest.  simple, right?  next time, we will check out narvis' other quest (an example of a delivery type quest) and then take a look at an adventure type daily quest.  see you again very soon!

daily quests, part 1 - getting to tan

as with most games, istaria has a variety of quest types - adventure, crafting, npc 'favors', etc.  the following posts will show you an example of daily quests; obviously, quests that can be repeated every day, if so inclined.  there are quite a few such quests, and two i have chosen to start with are easy and available to most everyone, even low levels.  if you are under 20th advent level, it is advisable to team up with another player - you may run into some baddies while getting to and completing these quests.  also, you will need the skill and tools to harvest elm logs - 2nd tier wood resources.

both the quests are given by the same npc - lumberjack navis tan, brother to barvos tan and half of the team that runs the sable shores' woodworking station.  sable shores is on the coast northwest of bristugo, and it is there that i started this adventure.

take the road at the southwestern end of the port pads.  stay on it until just past the guard shack, and you want to start looking for a dirt road on your right (north).  if you make it to the broken down wagon at the crossroads, you have gone too far south.  

take the dirt road until you hit pavement again, and turn west (your left).  you will be heading into territory that may be tricky for the lowest levels, so if you aren't using the buddy system, stay on the road (the bonus really helps) and don't stop running, even if you get hit.

stay on the paved road and you will soon see the wws ahead - you have to run right by it to get to the bridge, so you can't miss it.  naris is the brother closest to the water - both brothers give quests, and we may be exploring barvos' offerings at a later time - so approach him and greet him as normal.  he will offer you 2 quests, which we shall be exploring soon.  meet me here again soon to find out about them!

next up, player quests

for the past few years, the gods of istaria have been making changes - including revamping old, and adding new, quests.  since i have never really done quests not needed to complete the task at hand, it should be an education for us both if i explored some of the quests my beloved game has to offer.  i will, by no means, be doing them all, but i hope to cover enough to give you readers a taste of the wide and varied things and places to explore in my dear world.

as usual, i will be following info found at the istaria wiki, in particular, the complete (okay, that's a misnomer, but a hopeful one) quest list.  the old quartermaster quests have been revamped into (mostly) daily, (a few) hourly, and at least one weekly, quests, and we will be exploring them first.  i will be focusing on quests that are, or should be thru the use of dragon ingenuity, available to any player alt.  i will not be doing all available quests - not only am i not really interested in that, but i don't have the time!  but i will try to select a variety of types, along with considerations given to exploration and functionality (will the quest gain useful items/skills, etc).

come back soon, for a quick and easy couple of quests to kick the series off!
