CAVE IN

Each of these dudes is an open world mob that you need to kill. They are not ‘rare’ mobs and should always be up, if someone has just killed them then the respawn timer is the same as any other normal open world mob.
Most of the mobs are inside caves, so I have given you the waypoint to the cave entrance too.
When you have killed them you need to loot an item from their corpse, right clicking that item in your bags will open up a quest that will ask you to hand the item in to ‘Tzevi Durdana’ in Fortunes Shore at /setwaypoint 6637 7109
Tzevi Durdana is inside a building, right next to the entrance of that building is a paper on the wall, right clicking the paper will bring up a list of all these ‘bounty mobs’ with a small description of them and hints on where to find them.

LIVING ON THE EDGE

This cheevo is gained by doing the first quest of a hidden questline.
The first quest can be found in fortunes shore, the questgiver appears randomly so you will need to keep checking if he is up or not. You should switch shards to check them all as he is up on different shards at different times.

The ‘quest’ is to place a bet on either the red or yellow fighting cockatrice and hope that your bird wins! Only a winning bet will progress the quest, so you may have to try a few times before you are successful.
The NPC Marsh Prodem can be spoken to to get information about the birds, tho the information isn’t very useful, its mostly a random chance… You can ‘help your bird along’ by healing them tho!

Use the ‘I’m ready to wager’ chat to start the proceedings!
The betting balls in the boxes beside you will now be clickable. Click the ball that matches the colour of the bird you want to bet on!

You should have a buff in your buff bar saying which bird you bet on..

Your bird needs to win before the timer runs out.
Dont forget to heal your bird if you can!
If you win, the red loot bag behind the NPC will sparkle. right click to loot it.
If you don’t win, you will have to try again another time, you only get one chance per NPC pop.

Inside the bag will be your magic ticket, which now allows you to start the magic ticket questline.
The magic ticket can be found in your quest items bag.
Be aware, the ticket is not clickable like other quest starters, you just have to go to the right location with the ticket in your bag.
You need to go to /setwaypoint 6873 7194 and find ‘Mona Bernardi’ – She will give you the first quest (i will write a guide to this questline eventually!).

DRAGON CULT ANNIHILATION

You will find loads of these mobs in the Firesand Desert area.
They are nicely grouped up around the 4 broken roadways (in the red circles)…
Or you can kill the groups in the settlements (in the blue circles).

DETHRONING THE DESERT QUEEN

Akala is a level 50 20 man open world boss.
You can pick up a weekly quest to kill her from ‘Takavu Zinrah’ at /setwaypoint 5597 6623 – Southern quest hub in dunes of Akala.
Akala can be found all the way to the north in her own special arena.
At level 50, you will want a group of at least 10 peeps to kill her. This is easily solo-able at level 70.
