Mysterious Mists Traveler, anyone? (Zeghai of the Lost)

So, there are three new weapon skins + 1 inscription sold by said person. Saw the NPC earlier in Rata Sum, but now they are gone.

Anyone detected a pattern of their travel route yet?

.

P.S. These are the skins: Mistcleaver, Mistrender, Mistbreaker (check your wardrobe storage)

    Maybe it's the lost revenant weapons we never got.

    30 Beautiful new mount skins?! Anet take my money!

    Oh that line in the late notes intrigues me, anyone know more about it?

  • @Ashantara.8731 maybe help the discussion out a little by describing the npc - race, gender, name tag etc

    They are. An Axe, a Mace and a Hammer respectively.

    Indeed they are.

    Judging by the wiki the axe is craftable, but no info yet on how to get the recipe or the 'Revenant's Inscription' needed to craft them.
    https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Mistcleaver
    https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Recipe:_Mistcleaver

    Edit: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Revenant's_Inscription Recipe for the inscription for the ascended Mistward Axe is now on the wiki. (No source of where to get the recipe yet, but probably soon.)

    https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Mistrender No indication the mace can be crafted.

    https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Mistbreaker Same for the hammer

    So far the wiki only has some crafting info for the axe, though it's still incomplete. The pages for the axe and the recipe were updated/created today. Give it time for people to update the wiki as they find more info. Maybe Dulfy will have a guide eventually.

    This mysterious NPC must be new. Hopefully they did give us a way to finally get those Revenant beta weapons. Last I saw quite some time ago, a dev explained they somehow lost the files on these weapons and would have to rebuild them from scratch.

    Data mined info from That_Shaman https://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/comments/8hy2a1/datamining_upcoming_features_from_the_may_8_patch/

    It seems they are finally making the Mistward Revenant beta weapon skins available. Was hoping for a Mistward Sword skin too. Oh well.

    I wish I could! I only remember seeing the name while rushing by, then later another player told me this was the NPC for said new/old weapons (that player got the recipe for the Cleaver). Hmph...

    Edit - This was their location: Department Of Arcane Eye POI.

    All three can be crafted, there should be no doubt about that. ;)

    I just created https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Zeghai_of_the_Lost on the wiki based on reports here and on reddit. So that folks can begin consolidating findings.

    Went to Rata Sum and nothing. Went back later to the POI mentioned on the wiki and there he was. Along with like a hundred other players LOL https://imgur.com/a/0tH1l87

    He only had 1 recipe though. People say what he has for sale changes depending on spawn location.

    People had waited hours for him to show up at the Grove and Rata Sum.

    Edit: He seems to stick around longer than the 5 minutes some people have claimed.

    Edit 2: Just noticed in the chat window that it seems I learned the 'Revenant's Inscription' recipe when I learned the Miscleaver recipe.

    Thanks for all the elaborate info. Anyone seen Zeghai of the Lost since Hoelbrak?

  • Zaxares.5419Zaxares.5419 Member ✭✭✭

    Wiki is reporting that he popped up at Sculptor's End in Malchor's Leap. Based on what Charrbeque mentioned earlier, I now suspect that Zeghai has a list of fixed locations that he rotates through, staying 30 mins each time. We just never spotted him before because people were looking in cities and areas closely linked to the Mists.

    The big question now is whether or not his list of locations includes areas in HoT and PoF...

    Clearly he is descended from Nicholas, but instead of going easy like his ancestor did the guy wanted to make us work for our weapons.

  • Just bought the hammer recepie Mistbreaker from this guy he was in the graveyard in Stronghold of Ebonhawk close to the heropoint. Got the inscription atomatic learning the recepie. Was just selling the hammer and only there for a very short time.

    • The mysterious mist traveller seems to be on a 2 hour rotation spawning 10 minutes before (game's) dawn and despawning 10 minutes after dawn. The recipes seem to change on each spawn, i.e. he remains about 25 minutes at each location.
    • He can appear anywhere: specifically, he's been in Rata, Grove, Sculptor's End (in Orr), gendarren fields/Stonefish beach, etc

    In game, someone says it's both dawn & dusk, so more like 25 minutes out of every hour.

    Just another goldsink, keeping players wp'ing around in the hope they land in a lucky shard. Completely unwarranted farce and darn right infuriating waste of time imo.. just place the traveller in set locations for a set day like with PoF... otherwise it's just sillyseason all over again.

    Nope. When he was in Rata Sum there was no special icon on the map, which makes finding him around the game even more difficult.

    They should make his icon appear on the map like the Pact Supply Network Agent, so when you enter a map you can see if he is there and where exactly he is located in the map. They should also make him work the same way, where he has a fixed location each day. https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Pact_Supply_Network_Agent

    Seriously. He seems to be able to spawn literally anywhere in the game from the sounds of things, and it's completely random where and when he spawns.

    In Rata Sum he was there at least 25 minutes. I went to The Grove to wait a while for him to show up after posting in this thread about it, and everyone from Rata Sum came there a few minutes later and mentioned he was in Rata for about 30 minutes or so. After over about 45 minutes of waiting in The Grove I gave up and logged out.

    I've seen some people in Rata and Grove say they'd been waiting for a couple hours or so for him to show up. It's crazy I tell ya.

  • LucianDK.8615LucianDK.8615 Member ✭✭✭✭

    seems to me that is in a single spot of his possible locations every hour. And if noone has been able to find him, its probably because its an undiscovered location.

    Thank you. When I found him in Diessa Plateau, I couldn't see because the Catmander tag was right on top of him on the map. :-) FYI to folks, I got the Hammer recipe there. I also meant to mention, the wiki is ambiguous about the location. He was standing on the rocks northwest of the waypoint & east of the North Nolan Hatchery POI (above "Town of Nolan" on the map).

  • LucianDK.8615LucianDK.8615 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Im seeing an interesting comment on the wiki:
    During every spawn, one of the below items will be offered. The recipes rotate in a 3-hour cycle, starting with Recipe: Mistbreaker (0:15), Recipe: Mistrender (1:15) and Recipe: Mistcleaver (2:15).[verification requested]

    https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Mistbreaker#Available_prefixes

    Is that it? Only 3 options for stat selection? And they're ascended items. Probably can't be placed in the mystic toilet to stat swap to something more preferable either.

    If their expectation was that players would only want these for the skins, they would have been better off selling them in the gem shop, or at least make them black lion chest exclusive skins.

    If I were to craft an ascended weapon, I better be able to have the exact stats I want, even if I have to stat swap it in the mystic forge. It seems kinda pointless to not only go through all the trouble of finding the NPC to buy the recipes, but all the gold and materials spent to craft it only for it to be completely useless due to no way of having the stats you want.

    If it can at least be placed in the mystic forge that would be worthwhile. Confirmation from someone who has crafted one of these weapons would be nice. They don't have to actually stat swap it, just see if it can be put in the mystic forge to swap stats and let the community know about it.

    Yes, they certainly can, since they are ascended. I have not yet met an ascended item that couldn't be transformed (except the breathing apparati). You can swap stats with all of them, including collection items.

    Thanks folks. It seems to be worthwhile to continue pursuing. :)

    Oh and, the Caladbolg weapons can't be stat swapped in the mystic forge. You'd have to trade in the weapon plus 1k unbound magic to Ridhais in your home instance if you want different stats for it, or want a different type of the weapon without having to craft it. I got the greatsword and found it couldn't be placed in the mystic forge at all, regardless if it was transmuted to a different skin.

    https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Regrown_Caladbolg

    The funny thing was, I went to trade in the greatsword for another greatsword to get different stats, but the original weapon wasn't taken from me, so I wound up with 2 Caladbolg Orchidas with different stats selected. It did take my unbound magic. This was a while ago and I /bugged it in game since I was under the impression I was suppose to lose the weapon. No idea if it was ever changed though.

    According to ArenaNet Developer, Myranda Pendragon, "If no one is in the map when his time to spawn comes up he wont spawn".

    A good reason why the NPC should have a fixed location, even if it changes location multiple times a day. If nobody is in a map when he spawns, everybody has to wait until the next spawn time while trying to figure out where he is. And again, if nobody is in the next map he spawns, it winds up being a game of cat and mouse.

    If you're a Revenant using the Mist armor without dyeing it, they'll fit perfectly.

  • @LucianDK.8615 said:

    Take a high quality screenshot (the wiki might have one). Then use a robust image editor to "eye drop" the color(s) (as @Ashantara.8731 implied above, there could be several). Then use the dye matcher at GW2 BLTC:
    https://www.gw2bltc.com/en/tool/dye/search

    • You need the CSS hexcode, which might require adjust an option or clicking a button to expose. Or you can eye-ball it.
    • Then enter that code in the website in the appropriate column (e.g. 3rd one for metal/heavy classes).
    • Then sort by the third column in the table.

    Big caveat: dyes are represented on computers using three numbers, but dye matcher only compares in one dimension. So it will generate some "close" matches that don't look close from your point of view. Think of asking google how long it takes to get from 1235 Main Street, Apt 5014 to 1237 Main Street, Apt 5014 — it's a 10 second walk, if you can float on air, but 10 minutes if you have to wait for the elevators in both buildings, i.e. close & yet not that close.

    Here's a not-great color to get your started:
    https://www.gw2bltc.com/en/tool/dye/search?ipg=25&sort=metal&metal=a60925&page=1
    Should get you in the right ballpark.

    He does not have a map icon. He does have coins with a small map square over his head. His spawn points and recipe offering schedule are now known (barring added randomness by ANet) and you can check That Shaman's timer at https://thatshaman.com/tools/zeghai/

    You may still need to lfg to find the instance of the map he's on once he's spawned, but you can be at the spawn point a few minutes before a quarter after the hour to make sure there is a populated map for him to enter.

    (Note on the Malchor's Leap one where I just was: He shows up on the big upright ring just west of the vista, not on the vista promontory itself).
