You say, 'Hail, Cartographer Slipgear'

Cartographer Slipgear says 'Bzzt! Well hello there! It's always nice to see a new face! I get so tired of all the same faces and places, don't you? Unfortunately my left leg is jammed and all I can do right now is walk in little circles! Bzzt! This has made it pretty hard for me to finish up the maps I have started of the surrounding areas. Would you like to [help]?'

You say, 'I would like to help.'

Cartographer Slipgear says 'Great! What I need is really pretty simple. I've managed to overhear some of the new arrivals talking about some of the surrounding areas and they sure do sound really exciting! Bzzt! Since I can't go there myself right now I was hoping you could visit each one and then come back and describe them to me so I can add them to my maps. Do you [accept the mission]?'

You say, 'I accept the mission.'

You are presented with a task window with several options. Select "Chart the Undershore."

You have been assigned the task 'Chart the Undershore'.

Cartographer Slipgear has asked you to visit some of the locations he has been hearing so much about lately. Visit each location and return to him with notes on what you have found and he has promised to reward you for your efforts.

North Rim Outpost

Along the Northern Rim of the Undershore, shiliskin slave traders have established a rudimentary trade camp. Dubbed North Rim Outpost, this shiliskin trade camp is less xenophobic and more open than the bulk of the Shiliskin Empire. A few individuals there may even be willing to conduct business with the other sentient races of Darkhollow.

Malgrinnor: East Gate

The gates of Malgrinnor guard the last standing fortress of the crumbling Shiliskin Empire. You can recognize the gates by the monolithic shiliskin visages carved into the stone surfaces.

Entrance to Runesmoke Cavern

Runesmoke cavern along the western edge of the Undershore marks the ancestral location of countless shiliskin rituals and rites. Their shiliskin deathshed priests still gather there to pay homage to the Korlach, the Leviathan of the Deep.

The Enclave of Jarzarrad

Jarzarrad is an ancient prophet who was exiled from the Shiliskin Empire. He lives with his small but fervent disciples along Undershore's isolated southern rim.

Jadewater Beach

Jadewater Beach borders the richest and clearest waters of the Undershore. The shiliskin from the nearby fortress of Malgrinnor have established a prosperous fishing community along its rocky banks.

The Stone Forest

The Stone Forest is a tangled maze of rock formations that jut from the western mesa of the Undershore. The Ragepaw wurines have long claimed the terrain within its gnarled border as their territory.

100 platinum,
You gain experience!!

Your task 'Chart the Undershore' has been updated.

Cartographer Slipgear says 'Wow this is fantastic! You captured a lot of details here! This will really help me flesh out my maps.

New player. So I did try once at 65. No luck. Died 2 times.

I am all access player. So i waited until i got to the AA Perfected Invisibility and also the AA Air elemental form.

Went back at level 72 (you could do it earlier if you got those two AA's abilities, i just wanted to level up some) And was able to sneak around to all the spots.

By levitating, i was able to avoid all the mobs on the ground by flying from island to island. I stuck to all the large pillars of islands whenever I could and tried to stay high above as much as possible.

Invisible + fly helped alot.

Best of luck if you want to try this too.

so an EB item would have saved you? sounds like a 20k fall would have killed you.
Has no stats because...

Okay some general things about the Slipgear's Gem. First, only shows stats after you put it in a charm. Second, after each quest the new stats only appear after you zone. So if you're Gem is not showing stats try implanting it, or zoning. They quests themselves aren't too dificult, I've made it as far as the Ruins without a death. The Hive is proving much more challenging than the others.
Goblin Shroud

How do I get the goblin shroud? If you dont pre order the expansion or buy it from a store how do I get it. I would like to do this quest but cant find any info.

Goblin Shoud

How do I get it? I didnt pre-order Depths or buy the boxed version from a store so I never received a tooth. Cant find any info about this anywhere. Does anyone know?

RE: Goblin Shoud

The tooth is for the Gargoyle shroud, not the goblin one. Goblin has hide/sneak. In any case, I obtained a sphere of air from a mage (me) and used that. This quest is well worth doing.

Any one else having problems with this quest. I finished the first stage and now I can't get it to let me do the second stage.

I have done this quest 2 times. Each time with someone else. When I get back the the Catographer and hail him, he replys "nice to see a new face". The other people I've done it with get the exp, pp, and the gem. Thus I know I'm doing it correctly but I can't get any feedback. I petitioned and it said to report it as a bug. Did that. No response.

Petitioned again (having to delete the other petition - ticket - cause you can only have one ticket at a time) and haven't recieved response yet. Anyone have any ideas?? I'm getting real good at helping others get the gem, but would kinda like to get it myself. :)

figured it out. forget i said anything
stats on charm

Don't forget your Slippage Gem will NOT show any stats until put on a charm and equipped. Only then will you see any stats on it, if I am not mistaken.

Good hunting

OH do these in rogue shroud form the hide sneak makes it a lot easier.

I finished 1 stage of it and got the charm, but no stats. I thought you just had to do the undershore part. Didn't know you had to go to 5 different zones trying to do this.

Looks kinda ruff as a monk, but that aug would be nice. Would be a nice upgrade to my 4hp aug from LDON.

This quest has been rated 0 times.

I'd like to rate it excellent but don't see how.

The reward xp is minimal. The 100pp is good to buy the rez you'll probably need from exploring but the final aug is great for those who didn't push through LDoN.

The ability to rate quests accidentally disappeared, but has now been restored. Rate away!

You should use all possible means. In this case use a Goblin shroud that already possesses SOS, to do this w/o any death.

Using the shroud it becomes an excellent and easy quest.
