My main Yetian has finally finished the quests in Jarsath wastes, which I worked on to get a hammer that ports you back there. The hammer is handy when doing instances in Jarsath as it saves you some time getting to the zone.
I’ve now begun questing in the Moors of Ykesha which is the overland zone introduced with the TSO expansion. I’ve quested here before with my Inquisitor Mawmet though I didn’t do too many before playing Yetian as my new main.
The first image is of the dock where you land if your method of travelling to the Moors is via the airship from Sinking Sands. I don’t travel that way as I am a Warden and can open a portal to the Moors, or use our guild hall portal NPC to port there.
In the landing area there are many quest NPC’s to be found as well as a banking area, crafting stations (with NPC’s) and a mender. There are writ givers and an NPC who gives out 2 shard quests. The Dropship Landing has a very Gnomish theme with lots of strange looking Gnomish contraptions scattered around the place, in fact the Gnomes are likely the very same Gnomes that built the airship.
As well as the quests in the landing area there are many others after you fly down from Dropship landing to the ground area. The quests are set out in linked quest lines as are many quests in Everquest 2. I should explain that Dropship Landing is positioned above the area where your quests take you. You reach the lower area by climbing into a barrel which is then launched (with you inside), through the air and into a net on the ground!
The first part of the zone is a good size with various factions of NPC’s and creatures for you to pit your skills against. Bloodskull pirates and Boarfiends are the two main factions in the first area, though there are of course the friendly Gnomes and their robots.
I’ve included a couple of images showing the air balloon ride to Firmroot Moot as it does show the scale of the Ykeshan Moors. It’s a slow ride, but each time you can’t help thank the developers for creating such a breathtaking zone.
As this zone is one I have yet to complete on any of my characters I’ll keep you all updated with Yetian’s progress through the Moors and take some more screenshots of the zone for your viewing pleasure.
