Decided to open this thread for those who like to EXPLORE (like me), but more importantly this thread for the purpose of helping out people reaching POI, Vistas, Skill Points and whatever else. biggrin.gif

Till date my toughest Vista was at The Breached Wall, Diessa Plateau. biggrin.gif The most interesting one is also at Diessa Plateau, Moorwatch Tower.

*log 16th Sept, Metrica Province took up a lot of my time, and effort. arrghghh insane place. Lornar's Pass was huge, and Dredgehunt Cliffs was decent but one POI entrance just eluded me despite passing by many times.

*let me know if such thread existed.

Currently I've completed 100% of the following
- Black Citadel
- Plains of Ashford
- Diessa Plateau
- Wayfarer's Foothill
- Snowden Drifts
- Hoelbrak
- Lion's Arch
- Gendarran Fields
- Kessex Hills
- Brisban Wildlands
- Metrica Province
- Rata Sum
- Caledon Forest
- Dredgehunt Cliffs
- Lornar's Pass
- Dredgehill Cliffs
- The Grove
- Bloodtide Coast
- Timberline Falls
- Harathi Hinterlands
- Sparkfly Fen

biggrin.gif Areas outside those area beyond my assistance.

Yeah lol, there's also a hidden area there with chest, very well hidden haha. Emm from the vista you should see something like a mouth that lets you jump straight down into water below. Now the only problem is you might die when you drop, so only do it if a bunch of players are there lol.

yup. especially like those where the POI is under water or in a cave. biggrin.gif

Vista is ALWAYS open area. Some are so straight forward, some (like the one in Diessa Plains) took me (in my rather sleepy state) some 40 tries or so. tongue.gif

The problem was not i don't know how to get there but rather the timing and the jumps. Charr is huge so that alone does make it feel cumbersom, in some cases misjudge the distance or gap.

i would love to try complete one area at one time but it seems like impossible, or maybe im too depressed spending hours just to find the path??

OR

I knew the path of some POI/Vista but the mob are very the very strong or there are just way too many of them..

So when I feel like it is hard to get to POI/Vista, I just skip it. run further and enjoy some event.

p/s : I will be back and complete all of em with my new shining armor, thunderous weapon and full traits build. Just u wait.

I think that one is on the way to the Lion's Arch jumping puzzle. U have to jump on the stacks of hay, onto the roof of a house, then jump down to a balcony-like structure there. Just keep going in the general direction of the vista. It should be in a cave up in the hill... and if you continue on after the vista, you'll start the jumping puzzle.

Please correct me if I'm wrong! tongue.gif

I'm right next to the waterfall already. If I jump, sure die and I don't see anyone there either. How to access the bottom part of it not from the vista?

p/s: Where's the chest ah? I'm already down here at the waterfall area
