    Any news on the Lorebook: Scaly Steeds of Black Marsh?
    Last one I need in my hunt for 100% of lorebooks 👍

    • Ärmätèsz

      I got the book to show up at a random bookshelf in murkmire, just find somewhere that has a lot of bookshelves and go reading crazy, then teleport to a house you don’t own and walk out for them to be refreshed, hope that helps. Here is proof btw https://twitter.com/Armatesz/status/1061802790731710464
      Fyi it didn’t take me much time for it to show up, teleported once and next time I checked it was at the 4th one I looked at.
