If you’re following the walkthrough, we suggest embarking on this expedition immediately after completing the Swamp Witch’s Hut Expedition by clearing the eponymous Swamp Witch’s Hut area. Once done, you’ll likely want to head back to the capital to deal with any events that may have popped up in your absence, but instead of going back the way you came through the Narmlarches, this expedition takes you home through the previously unexplored Kamelands. Despite taking you to several new areas, the trip back home through the Narlmarches shouldn’t take that much longer than going through the Kamelands (resting time excepted), as traveling through the Kameland’s plains is generally faster than going through the thickly forested Narlarches.
The areas covered in this expedition are as follows:
|Secluded Lodge||Staff Sling +2, Padded Armor +2, Cloak of Resistance +2|
|Empty Skull Rock||Cloak of Resistance +1|
|Mud Bowl||Mushrooms from the Mud Bowl quest, Frost Battle Axe +1|
|Bald Stones||Flaming Glaive +2|
|Bridge Over the Gudrin River||–|
There aren’t too many complications with this expedition, as the Kamelands aren’t really an active main quest area just yet. Stil, there are some things worth keeping in mind as you explore:
- The Secluded Lodge area is full of loot if you skill checks (Trickery and Perception) are up to snuff, but it’ll become a more important main quest destination later.
- While you can and should complete the quest Mushrooms from the Mud Bow while exploring the Mud Bowl area, the act of actually collecting your reward requires you to return to the Swamp Witch’s Hut area - a backtrack we’ll avoid until we head out to explore the Dwarven Ruins.
- The Bald Stones area is home to a powerful creature. If you can’t defeat it, don’t fret - just come back later.
- The Bridge Over the Gudrin River also houses a foe too powerful for you to defeat, and as such will not be explored in its entirety. This should deter you from exploring it, however, as like many areas explored during the Verdant Chambers Expedition, you’ll be given reasons to return here later. An early trip during this expedition will make such future journeys less complicated.
