Walkthrough

– Collect Bloodfire Embercores from Bloodfire Footholds 0/12

bloodfirefoothold

Find Bloodfire Footholds (they will be Fire-based). They appear in Ashora near the south porticulum Nurjak Vostra and in the area below in Kingsward. [Location].
The footholds themselves don’t appear on the Main Map or the Mini-Map.

The Bloodfire Footholds are Elite footholds. The mobs themselves aren’t elite; but they’ll still dish out a decent amount of damage combined against a single player. Just have a decent amount of survivability/self-heals and you should be fine.

If you’re having trouble soloing them – try concentrating on one mob at a time and leave the foothold till last. Either that or find a group.

Note: Currently there seems to be a bug where some Bloodfire Footholds have ‘doubled-up’ with two footholds on top of each other (and twice as many mobs). Be extra careful when approaching one of these.

– Return to Crucia in Tempest Bay

Speak to Crucia at the Haunted Terminal in Tempest Bay at (13392, 11595) to complete this quest.

    I can only assume that you have set this guild up by doing the air saga event on a test server. The only reason I say that is because you are correct but also not correct. Each act for this event is marked with a date they will be open. Sure you must complete all of Act 1 before march 20th of 2014 to be able to start Act 2 from general Batua. I did get confused by the guild due to the fact that you said the Arc opens up after doing Arc 3. I did all of that and he has no quest and that is because Act 2 does not come into play until March 20th 2014.

    • February 14, 2014 at 12:29 am #

      You should be able to do Arc 2 and Arc 3 during Phase 1 of the World Event. Arc 4 starts during Phase 2 and Arc 5 starts during Phase 4 of the World Event.

      I was able to complete the first three Arcs during this current phase on Live. Same with a lot of other players in my guild.

      I have also mentioned at the very beginning of Arc 4 that you need to wait until Phase 2 of the World Event for the quests to unlock.

      If any of the text has confused you, would you be able to point out what parts of the guide have caused this confusion so I can look into correcting it? Thank you 😀
