—We travel further away from our homes than we have ever been, to the distant island of Istan. What treasures - and perils - await us there?
The Expedition to Istan is an exploratory one-time event, a shared adventure to Istan for players to get themselves acquainted with the region. We will start at the first waypoint, in the region, then proceed through the area, completing events & hunting bounties on the way, reaching some distant places and getting an achievement or two! On our journey, we'll also help players figure out the answer to the question "what exactly is Brandstone, anyway?".
Note that this is not intended to be a 100% exploration run or a farm grind, but rather a relaxed foray into the map. The commanders have noted down some key points we want to visit, but the expedition will not follow a strict path or schedule.
As part of the run, we will visit all the waypoints in the area, touch on quite a few key locations, complete the meta event and point out some interesting locations and achievements. We will be bringing fully mounted mesmers to help players get to difficult locations, and if any attendees wish to bring a mesmer themselves, that's welcome too!
The event takes place on Saturday, the 2nd (of December) at 17:00 CET [16:00 UTC/GMT], and will last 2-3 hours (players can enter/leave freely throughout the event).
Note: The event itself and our Teamspeak in general are considered spoiler-free, so you can join the event even if you have not finished the story yet without fear of it being spoiled for you.
