"Antiquity lead acquired." Wut?

I'm scrying a few Antiquity leads which will expire within 2 weeks, something I do every week so I don't lose any that expired because I wasn't paying attention.

I'm in Summerset, heading toward the region where the excavation site for my last lead is located. I walk round a rock and see a dancing ghost which I don't remember seeing before. Just as I get ready to cross the stream to see if I can interact with her, she fades away. Then a notification pops up-- "Antiquity lead acquired."

Wut?

Okay, I'm probably the only player who's never heard of this lead before. I enjoy finding leads by happy accident, rather than looking up a list of every new lead that gets added to the game and where it drops from so I can go grind for it for hours or days or weeks.

Anyway, I thought this was pretty cool. :)

    Yes, exactly. I don't know when it was added into the game, but I assume it's been there for a long time now and that everyone else collected it long ago. I just thought it was cool to stumble upon it unexpectedly without already being aware of it.

    That's how I prefer to find leads-- accidentally, as an unexpected surprise. Needless to say, that attitude means I haven't got very many mythics yet-- just 4 on one server, and only 2 on the other server. But I enjoy finding things all by myself rather than going down a checklist or walkthrough that someone else put together.

    I appreciate the little things like this that the devs put in the game. :)

    That is awesome! I got it awhile back and thought the same thing as you. It was cool to run across something random like that and get a reward/item to use in game.

    This has been in the game like, how long now, and I have only now learned this is a thing? That actually sounds super cool! I hope there's more stuff like this. Looks like I'll have to roam around zones a bit more, especially Summerset to see if I can find this little thing

    It has been there since the inception of the Antiquities system; one of the original leads.

      This one was very cool and yeah it surprised me the first time I stumbled across her, loved it! :smiley:
      I wish they did more lead discoveries like this.
      Happen upon a ghostly scene that reveals a location to you. Or maybe encounter an old treasure hunter who passes the information to you, etc.

      For many leads it makes more sense to me if we'd receive them in those ways instead of for example, going to beat up the same world boss from 1 to 200 times hoping that THIS time the lead will fall out of their hidden pocket... >.<

      Also found that one randomly. I love getting random leads like that. Better than grinding for them by far.

      Just proves how little I've been to Summerset since Antiquities launched.
