Vanguard All Housing Quests Guide



Vanguard All Housing Quests Guide by Ixiola

The source of this information came originally from a post on vanguard crafters that I had saved to a file a couple years ago.  In addition, I’ve added information below (some from notes and some from memory) on where to find the bricks/cornerstones that minerologists need to inspect to complete the quests.  Again, thank you to the original posters on vanguard crafters for this information.

[Guide] All Housing Quests (WiP) General info:

t3 is lvl 21 – 30. minimum requirements for t3 quest is to be lvl 21 crafter

All items for houses i did count an grade a items
if you build them b grade you will need two times as many. (per example 400 bricks instead of 200)
if you build them c grade you will need four times as many. (per example 800 bricks instead of 200)

Many asked questions:

1) Do you need a mineralogist to build the house, if you got all stuff needed on you?
– No, you dont. you go to your slot, then you choose the house you wanna have in the construction window. then you add all stuff needed since there are shown 100 %. after you just need to click the Construct button, and voila, its done.

2) Can carpenters craft houses too?
– Easy question, easy answer, no they cant. they can craft some wood parts for the house. but youll need a mineralogist for sure. and the mineralogist is able himself to craft the wood parts too.

3) Where can i build a house?
– thats easy: just search a plot anywhere in the world. buy it. buy the stuff needed. and build your house
4) Can i put a qalia house on thestra for example?
– no you cant, you can put qalia style house only on qalia, thestra style on thestra and kojan style on kojan.

5) Why do i need a house?
– well if you realy need it, thats your descission. but with a house you have chests you can put in stuff. And youll get recall to house.

6) Do i need to pay anything else then the parts i need for a house?
– yes, you have to get a plot first, this costs money, 2,5 g minimum and 30 g maximum, depens on where the plot is. and then, you have to pay a upkeep each week for the plot. upkeep is beetween 20 silver and 90 silver per week depends on slot, if i remember right.

7) can i upgrade a t3 house later to a t4 or t5 house?
– no you cant. but i realy dunno, if it will be possible perhaps in future. but i dont think so.

8 ) if i dont like my spot anymore, can i take my house from it and build it on another spot?
– no you cant. one time builded, you cant change the house anymore to another location

Styles on house parts:

Some houseparts have style, some not, here some infos what should help you within it.

NO STYLE items :
– Panels, Beams, this means you need to do panel / beam quest only in one continent, then you have the recipe allready. you cant do it again on another continent, because you know the recipe alllready after doing it ones.
– Fasteners, they dont have style, so you can use the fasteners on any continent.
– Mortar (shopable at npc), dont has style, you can buy the mortar at any npc in any continent and use it on any slot.

STYLE items :
– window panes, shopable at npc, they DO have style. this means you have to buy for example qalia window panes in qalia for building a qalia house.
– bricks have style. it means you need qalia style bricks for qalia house.
– cornerstone has style, it means you need a qalia cornerstone for a qalia house.
– shingles have style, you can use only right style ones for house.
– logs have style. you can use only right style ones for house.

Location of Brick / Cornerstones for Minerologist quests:

Note, that unlike the remainder of the housing quests, the brick/cornerstone quests generally require minerologists to go into KOS areas to “study” bricks/cornerstones to learn the recipe.  Since the act of studying the stones will make you visable, if you’re a low level adventurer, it is difficult to complete these quests without help.  (I personally did the T5 thestran quest at level 27, but I had a lot of help and still died 6 times.)  Speaking from personal experience, the Kojani style quests are easiest to do, followed by Qalian style, and lastly by Thestran.

Thestran Quests:

T3 Thestran Style:

Location:  Trengal keep
Rift:         Thestra, Trengal Keep
Level:       ~ 25

Bricks:      Invis works in TK.  Go into the front of Trengal Keep.  Near the back of the first section (before you pass through the arched doorway and run into the meteor mobs, there is a pile of rubble on your left.  The bricks you need to inspect are here.  (Loc -15060, -3420, 42890)

Cornerstone:  The fastest way to get to the right place without flying is to take the sewer tunnel (back door) into trengal keep, turn right and follow the wall into the next section of the dungeon.  You’re looking for the Church.  At the front of the door to the church on left side is the cornerstone you need to inspect. (Loc -34090, 9630, 1870)

T4 Thestran Style:

Location:  Ruins of Vol Tuniel (outside)
Rift:         Thestra, Celestine Ward
Level:       ~30

Bricks:  The mosquitoes will see through invis.  There are several bricks outside.  One that only is near a single spawn is at (Loc -3900, -19960, 1610)

Cornerstone:  In the corner next to one of the enterances to the large intact building in the temple area.  (Loc -39920, 10, 1800)

T5 Thestran Style:

Location:  Ruins of Old Targoner (outside)
Rift:         Thestra, Plains of Anquish
Level:       ~40

Bricks:   Invis to undead works in OT.  Go to the “safe rock”, which is a big set of rocks right next to two towers where most people gather to form OT griffon raids.  From there, head straight back to the large center building.  On the left side of the center, you’ll see ahead is a corner area that is “safe” to stand if you’re high enough level.  There is one brick on the ground here you can click. (Loc 59810, 57350, 30260).  Note, if you’re very low level, this area is NOT safe and you will agro the world when you try to inspect the bricks.

Cornerstone:  In the same area as above, there is a cornerstone at the corner of the steps.  Since there are guards here, these mobs will need to be cleared.  (Loc:  58010, 58970, 30350).

Qalian Quests:

T3 Qalian Style:

Location:  Ruins of Immanjel Sanctum (NE qalian on an island)
Rift:        Qalia, Skrilien Point
Level:     ~25

Bricks:     Large island NE of the rift at the ruins behind the lizard camp.  (Loc 2830, -51720, 900)

Cornerstone:  Small island SE of the brick area.  The cornerstone is found on the ground near the right hand of the tower.  (Loc 67940, -14600, 750)

T4 Qalian Style:

Location:  Strand of the Ancients, NE of the pantheon
Rift:         Qalia, Skrilien Point
Level:      ~27 – 30

Bricks:    Located in some undead ruins at the strands to the ancients.  (Loc -13780, -66470, 1820)

Cornerstone:   Info prerevamp of POTA:  At the right side of the pantheon at the corner.  The area is likely in the lower level portion of the pantheon with level 25-30 mobs (not the section with the level 50 mobs).  However, I was unable to find the cornerstone where I recall it being prerevamp.  I did notice an odd clickable tablet in the undead ruins which might be where they “moved” it, but would need someone who’s done this quest post revamp to confirm.  (Tablet Loc -9880, -67420, 1820)

T5 Qalian Style:

Location:  Stranglewater Shore (Lg island NW of Western Winds Trading Post)
Rift:         Qalia, Hathor Zhi or Seawatch
Level:       ~40

Bricks:       (Loc -43300, 27400, 1970)  The location will put you behind some rubble inside a building that has a Water Golem at the enterance.  Invis will get you into here.  Once behind the rubble, you’ll be out of line of site of the mobs and can safely study the brick.

Cornerstone:  Left side of ramp of a pyramid on the island, at bottom around the corner. (Loc -59880, 32340m, 2610)
