  • Nice guide as always!

    Just one note: The #6 chest is missing from the global map (the point upon The Scourgeway Waypoint)

  • Kasper Asmussen

    For #13 the “proper” way to get it is by using sand portals to reach the mastery, it’s not that hard as offers a better alternative to the griffon. It’s the same portals you use when chasing the champion air djinn.

  • hecar

    how i can get the permanent finisher?

    • Get 200 seals and then buy it from the NPC that turns into a vendor between the collecting deaddrop event and the delivering orders event.
