Players who are traveling to the rediscovered continent of Velious must first speak to Stissa, Emissary of the Speaker at -1504, -214, -386 on the dock in The Sinking Sands. She will permit your transportation to the Great Divide upon Lodizal, the blessed turtle of Prexus.

City representatives inside Thurgadin, City of the Coldain will have city tasks for you to hunt creatures in Great Divide and Eastern Wastes.

Delivered by Lodizal, you find yourself amidst an othmir fishing village on the Iceclad islands, off the coast of the glacier-covered landscape known as the Great Divide. It is here where your fated adventures in Velious begin!

Heroic Characters

Heroic Characters (who start at level 85) need to first speak to Lord Valkiss Ssi'sh (evil alignment) or Lady Liae Croae (good alignment) and complete a quest before this series opens up. They will be the only NPC with a quest feather when you land in Great Divide.

Fina's Retreat

The lively fishing village called Fina's Retreat is the second home to the othmir race. Your arrival has caused much celebration and excitement, but danger looms over these happy ottermen.
