ZOS_KaiSchober
Greetings Explorers!
Get your maps ready and summon your fastest horse! Here are today’s clues:
  • A cave full off hissing overlooks the sea
  • Head down to the wreckage and head towards the bridge to the abandoned fisher’s fire
  • Spot the white tiles where you head up the hill to the water below the ruin
  • Keep your feet wet upstream, under a bridge, to anther fisher’s catch
  • The rack points through a ravine. Keep the cliffs to your left until you reach two separate rocks
  • Pass through them towards rock and tree and a ragged canopy
  • Where a single block leads you across the path to a lonely blue torch. /Cheer as you have found your destination!

ESO-Orientierungslauf-Herausforderungen – Tag 1 – Auridon

Grüße Erkunder!
Haltet eure Karten bereit und füttert euer schnellstes Pferd, denn hier sind die Hinweise für die heutige Suche:
  • Eine Höhle voller Gezische thront über dem Meer.
  • Steigt zu den Wracks hinab und haltet auf die Brücke zu, was euch zu dem verlassenen Feuer eines Fischers führt.
  • Erspäht die weißen Platten und folgt dem Berg hinauf zum Wasser unter der Ruine.
  • Haltet eure Füße feucht, während ihr euch stromaufwärts unter einer Brücke zu einem weiterem Fischfang bewegt.
  • Das Gestell weist den Weg zu einer Schlucht. Behaltet das Klippen zur Linken, um zwei getrennte Felsen zu finden.
  • Lauft durch sie hindurch zu Fels, Baum und einer alten Überdachung.
  • Dort weist euch ein einzelner Block über den Pfad zu einer einsamen blauen Fackel. Nun ist Zeit zu jubeln (/cheer), denn ihr habt euer Ziel errreicht!
Sobald ihr den Zielort erreicht habt, erstellt einen Screenshot mit eurem Charakter, während dieser das jeweilig benötigte Emote verwendet. Postet diesen dann in diesem Thread, um euch zu selbst ehren und euch die Chance auf ein kleines Borstenschweinchen zu verschaffen.

Viel Glück und gute Reise!

Défis d’orientation ESO – Jour 1 – Auridia

Salutations, exploreurs et exploratrices !
Attrapez vos cartes et appelez votre cheval le plus rapide ! Voici les indices du jour :
  • Une grotte remplie de sifflements surplombe la mer
  • Dirigez-vous vers l’épave puis vers le pont donnant sur le feu du pêcheur abandonné
  • Repérez les carreaux blancs où vous grimpez la colline vers l’eau sous les ruines
  • Gardez les pieds mouillés à contre-courant, sous un pont, vers la prise du pêcheur
  • Le séchoir pointe vers au delà d’une ravine. Gardez les falaises à votre gauche jusqu’à atteindre deux rochers dressés.
  • Passez entre eux vers arbre et rocher jusqu’à un auvent rapiécé
  • Où un bloc esseulé vous mène par-delà le sentier à une torche bleue solitaire. Réjouissez-vous (/Cheer) car vous êtes arrivé(e) à destination.
Dès que vous trouvez le dernier point de repère, postez une capture d’écran de votre personnage effectuant l’emote requis devant lui dans ce fil de discussion, pour une chance de remporter le Porcelet Poilcouenne.

Bonne chance et bon vent !

    I'm sure this is not this lonely blue torch, but I already have the Bristlegut Pig so if i fail, it's not important. ;)

    You are right ... it is not the right destination. :)

    I wanted to join the orienteering challenges, and any other Welcome Back event, but I read that because my country (Denmark, EU) is not listed in the Terms and Conditions, I am not eligible to win anything!!?

    Denmark citizens aren't eligible for the weekend giveaway (very few countries are), but evidently the orienteering challenge has its own rules.

    @Darlgon Here's my guide. Part 1:

    A cave full off hissing overlooks the sea
    Start at the Nestmother's Den. It a cave full of giant snakes with a with a snake world boss. The cave is open at both ends, one leading to the beach.
    fe1b119f98a6fdb38fbb61db2e89e7.png

    Head down to the wreckage and head towards the bridge to the abandoned fisher’s fire
    On the beach side is a wrecked boat. Down the beach is a fishing site with a camp fire near the bridge.

    Spot the white tiles where you head up the hill to the water below the ruin
    Across the water are some stone tiles from the ruins, you want to go up the hill to the river above the waterfall.

    Part 2,
    I went the wrong way at first, all the way to the ghost ship far down the beach. So hears a map of where you should be at this point.
    33e3ee937822cb85174bf367dac034.png

    Keep your feet wet upstream, under a bridge, to anther fisher’s catch
    You're going to follow the river above to the very end till you find this bridge. Swim
    directly under the middle arch and that will lead you to the next fisher's site. (typo, that should be "another" in the clue.) 6cd10d0eb495baae620a62f2004c37.png

    The rack points through a ravine. Keep the cliffs to your left until you reach two separate rocks
    Follow counter clockwise around the cliff until to reach these rocks.

    Part 3, final

    Pass through them towards rock and tree and a ragged canopy
    You can see the campsite between the rocks with a patched canopy.
    074b03c6109cf471be5736aebd2abb.png

    Where a single block leads you across the path to a lonely blue torch. /Cheer as you have found your destination!
    This block is angled so it seems to point across the road where you find the blue torch.
