ANTIQUITIES LEADS + LEAD LOCATIONS UBER-THREAD

So I figured since we're all going to be hunting down leads for the antiquities system, it makes sense to have a handy-dandy central location to see where the various leads can be found and what they're for. So with that said, if you find a lead, can you please post:

- What the item is, and its lead colour (green/blue/purple/gold/orange)
- Where and how you found it


In addition, if WHERE you found it is different from what's listed here, please post that info anyway; it will help us determine if a lead is (for instance) only found on one particular WB vs. any WB in the zone. As well, if a lead is for a PIECE of something - like the wolf mount, or one of the mythic items - please state what item it's for as well.

SUPEREDIT: Many thanks to @Inklings for their work in compiling this much-easier-to-read spreadsheet!

    Leads to Antique Maps are sold by wandering merchants (and stationary merchants that sell the same items) in the zones, they require Pathfinder achievement of that zone.

    I like this idea, but i have found several bugged leads (leads found in one zone for another zone which seems incorrect/bugged because the lead doesn't tell you which zone it is for or anything - it just zooms into Journal and if it isn't there when you look at the Scry for zone you are in...well it is a click on every zone to find it thing. Worse for the fragment ones it doesn't say on the lead/item in journal which zone it is in. THEN it is up to you to port to each zone until you find it under "scry".

    Another BUG of note: The Master and Ultimate difficulty leads are both yellow leads.

    That said I will note which I believe are bugged:

    Antique Map of [Zone] - available from General Merchant/Innkeeper in the zone named for 1,000g, Green Lead.

    Parting words: I think a lot of the Safebox and Thieves Trove leads "might" be found in mulitple locations other than these two source. Same with purple leads on mobs - these are likely multi-source. The yellow leads on mobs - as rarer leads might be mob specific.

    Edit: I am assuming that leads from in zones they aren't for is bugged because of how the system currently works (not telling you where the lead is for, since this make finding leads in one zone for another zone counter-intuitive)

    Yes it is split into pieces. Five iirc. They are all found in different zones, you can get the leads from the box in the template inventory to check the zones they are in. I don't think anyone has found their sources yet though.

    I haven't got any leads to the parts of this ring during normal gameplay. After spending some time searching I took the leads from the template character container. Ring of the Wild Hunt should be excavated in Greenshade, Grahtwood, Glenumbra, Malabal Tor and Murkmire.

    Further apologies for my ignorance I have spent zero time testing this new system. Mainly been trying builds for the next patch the wild Hunt ring included 😁

    You require leads to scry and excavate right? So knowing the location of the fragments won't be enough?

    You require leads to everything except the first green treasure of the zone. You need to scry the item on any character to excavate it on any character.

    Hrm, not sure i read it that way but i see what you're saying. It's could be a poor example. The item be about Glenumbra history, so checking for the lead there does make sense, but does that extend to where it should be excavated? Current state of PTS says no.

    That's quite possible, my example above about the item found in Artaem and excavated in Eyevea. There is another fragment for that same item that is dug up in Artaem, so they could be swapped.

    I also think that since the Mythic items have 5 fragments with 5 leads, presumably in 5 different zones, they may be cross related, scavenger hunt style. Find a lead in 1 zone, leads to next zone and so on.

    I have also taken that phrase to mean that antiquities are found in the zone where you would scry/excavate them, but either some are bugged or some can be found in other zones/multiple reward places.
