Some TBM Updates! And Old Stuff Too!

Here's a classic quote from 2002. Context at the time was people upset that Vex Thal was so out of reach for the playerbase.

I understand how zones like this can be rather disheartening to anyone not in the "ubberest" guilds.  In a fantasy game everyone likes to view themselves as the Hero (or villian) and when there are areas that you KNOW you will never see it kinda takes some of that away.  I try to just ignore the new "ubber zones" in the luclin expansion, much as many people ignore Sleeper's Tomb from velious.  After Planes of Power is released perhaps some of these high level zones will be a bit more accessible (like many of the Kunark ones became post-velious).  Until then, set your own goals, and don't judge your own progression by the best of the best of the best... just see how close you are to *your* personal goals and be happy with the accomplishments you've made.  There's still a lot of great stuff to be gotten in zones other than vex thal and Ssra Temple.. just take a look at the Maiden's Eye equipment list.. and it's pretty easy to go through with a good group of 50+s.

*The new "continent" for The Broken Mirror doesn't exist yet in the Zam database, so the new zones (that have been added to the website so far) had to be flagged as "other" in respects to expansion. We are aware that this is not all of the new zones, but at least it's a start.

"All we need is that lazy brownie to climb up

and we can reach that elusive Faydark apple" -Bin Fiddlekins

Those feeling adventurous, we could use faction updates for many of the NPC in Lesser Faydark, including the ones most people wouldn't normally want to kill.

Calling the Paparazzi!

Norrath needs some Glam Photos...


This great shot of King Itkari has the especially nice feature of an edited-into-the-image map. It was uploaded by Railus (not sure who did the editing work if it wasn't Railus). Many of the named screenshots in the bestiary from Rain of Fear era and newer have this nice addition (the map).

If you have the interest and ability, it would be great to get such shots of older named throughout the game!

Note: one flaw in the map idea (and King Itkari is the perfect example of this) is if the named spawn location is not a single place but was originally thought to be so the map we have might be out of date... for example this npc now has 2 known spawn /locs. So we may need some modern updates as well for those not interested in lower level content.


At the same time, we don't have nice shots of many of these modern named without the map. It's nice to have both options, as this ancient pic of Brother Estle shows. Sometimes we want to do things with a pic where a map being in the shot isn't helpful at all. It's also nice to have old model/new model versions when applicable.

Update Note: there is some confusion with the Gates of Discord tradeskill quests (freebies for skill points, and collects for materials unlocks) as they were all held under the umbrella of "GoD Refine Raw GoD Materials" but some have their own entries and some still don't today. At this point we might as well try and give them all their own entries, but we also need to verify that all the quests are accurate for materials and such.
