Any way to get to the town of Beacon's Perch quickly? The screens and comments about how cool the town is are making me all antsy to get there. I'm new, at Ruins of Ascalon, level 6 and still still working on the Northern Wall mission. I'm afraid I'll have to go through several days of playing before I can see Beacon's Perch. I haven't ventured out of Ascalon ruins much so hopefully the town is close by? Or to get to any city in the whole game quickly?

BP is pretty damn far. You're either going to have to do the missions that take you there (and I honeslty can't remember if there are any, or if it's just one of those little outposts on the way to some place bigger) or have someone rush you there. If I can recall correctly...it's nothing special.

Yak's Bend is much bigger and Droknar's Forge is where it's at. I love Drok's so much.

Beacon's Perch is really early in the game, at the end of the mountains. You get there after one of the north shiverpeak's missions. People don't hang out there cause it's cool, there's just a lot of people there because thats where you get the run to droks from. Droks is where you can get some good armor.

All the cool people hang out in Marhan's Grotto though.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I thought. I hate Yak's Bend so much. Like, it's a cool town (looks-wise at least), but the quests are such crap. The areas outside of town are far too hard for the level you are when you arrive (around 10-12) and by the time you can really do the quests without much problem, the XP isn't worth it. This time through, with my Necro/Mesmer, I just decided to pretty much skip that whole area. I gotta get a run to Drok's though. My brother can do it, he just hasn't had time, and I honestly haven't played the game in like a month anyway, so it's not that big a deal.

South of the Thunderhead Keep mission. It's one of the 15k armor towns, probably the hardest to get to. Granite citadel is the other one, that's north east of Deldrimor War Camp.

That map was compiled before the Sorrow's Furnace addition came about, but the Deldrimor War Camp (south of Sorrow's Furnace) is located in that blank space south west of Granite Citadel.

EDIT: Here's all the maps.
