Vanguard Continental Style and Tier Questlines Guide



Vanguard Continental Style and Tier Questlines Guide by Karella

Continental Style Quests are the method by which an Artisan from one continent learns how to use the crafting recipes found on another continent. As a crafter, you already know the style of the continent on which you started.

The Continental Style quests require faction work before you can begin them, and sometimes additional work before they can be completed. Higher-level recipes can also require greater faction before they can be purchased. Once you have completed the initial Continental Style quest, you can learn further tiers on that continent just as it’s residents do.

Faction Requirements
Once you decide which continent you want to learn recipes on, the next thing you’ll need to do is find an outpost with work order taskmasters on the continent that gives faction both for the cities you’ll need to visit, and for the continent’s artisans. The recommended outposts are listed in the appropriate section below. Each completed work order gives the listed faction bonuses regardless of whether it is a “batch,” “set,” or single, and also regardless of the work order’s level. For the fastest faction grinding, do trivial, very easy, or easy single-item work orders.

Each Continental Style quest will send you to three major cities on that continent. Your static city faction in those cities must be -7999 or higher to avoid being killed by the guards of that city. Outposts with taskmasters that are near one of these cities will typically provide +10 city faction for each work order completed there.

In order to learn a Continental Crafting Style, you must have 100 or more faction with the artisans of that continent (Thestran Artisans, Kojani Artisans, or Qualian Artisans, depending on the continent). Learning the recipes of each tier will require even more artisan faction. Learning Amateur recipes (up to level 20) requires 200 Continental Artisan faction, increasing by a like amount for each tier. Outposts with taskmasters on a continent will typically provide +2 Continental Artisan faction for each work order completed.

Thestran Style

Faction Required: Thestran Artisans
Non-KoS Required: New Targonor, Bordinar’s Cleft, Leth Nurae, Tursh Village

Crafting Outposts
Fisher’s Pen (Central Thestra) gives +2 Thestran Artisans and +10 Tursh Village for each work order completed.

Wardship of the Sleeping Moon (Eastern Thestra) gives +2 Thestran Artisans and +10 Leth Nurae for each work order completed.

Completing work orders from the Imperial Trade Organization, New Targonor Trading Company, or Arcane Camarilla factions in New Targonor is not advised unless you have already chosen which NT faction you will work with in the future, as raising one of those factions will lower the other two.

Starting NPCs (all in New Targonor)

Varryn Dunes (on Qualia) gives +2 Kojani Artisan, +10 Clan Martok, +10 Ca’ial Brael, and +10 City of Tanvu for each work order completed.

Unlike Qualia and Thestra, the Kojani style quests’ starting zone differs depending on your Artisan class.

(Unknown whether any outposts give +10 Aghram faction per work order)

Completing work orders from The Cabal, The Merchant’s Guild, or Society of Invention factions in Aghram is not advised unless you have already chosen which Aghram faction you will work with in the future, as raising one of those factions will lower the other two.

Specialization Quest

At level 11 you are given a quest allowing you to choose a specialization within you parent tradeskill. Artificers can pick Minerologist or Carpenters, Outfitters can pick Leather worker or Tailor, and Blacksmiths can pick Armor Smith or Weapon Smith. Once you pick a specialization, or sooner if you know which route you plan to take before hand, you should set the option that you do not choose to negative (the – button on the right of the bar on the skills window). This will push your skill in that other type down to 0 and allow you to put those points back into the two skill types you will need (your parent type and your specialization type). Do not leave points in the type you didn’t specialize in, or you will only hurt your ability to craft items of your specialization as well as delay when you learn new skills.

You may change specializations later on if you choose, but you will lose all recipes, including special dropped rare recipes if you do. If you change within your parent class, such as Tailoring to Leatherworking, you will not lose any skill points but you will need to change the direction of your skills to drive them in the right direction. If you change to another trade entirely, like tailoring to carpenter, you start over at level 1 with 0 skills.

Tier Quests, Recipe Quests, Continental Styles Quests

They are all basically the same thing after level 11. These are the quests that you must complete in order to learn recipes each tier for each continent. You will not need to do the novice continental style quest for your home continent.

PLEASE NOTE: the amateur (level 11) quest is NOT the same thing as the specialization quest. These both take place at level 11, but they are two separate things. Many people assume that because they chose their specialization they are now amateur crafters and should have new recipes, only to be sadly disappointed, not to mention confused.

The Tier quests take place at level 11, 21, 31 and so on, and allow you to learn more recipes from your trainers. Along with the completion of the quest, you gain a new title. From Novice, you go to Amateur, Apprentice, and upward through the ranks until you reach the top of your profession. Expect your crafting profession to change as you increase in level through each ranks, with the process slowly changing and becoming even more complex. For the tier quests you need to do them for each continent to gain recipes on those continents.

Also note: when you are asked to craft an item for these quests, these are not work orders. You must supply your own materials, so be prepared!

Along with unlocking recipes, completing each tier quest gives you 100 continental artisan faction (50 for foreign lands), as well as decent amount of crafting experience.

Note: With the new displaying of all recipes, you will end up seeing recipes that are level 18, 19, 20, etc that require the Apprentice Quest which you can’t do till level 21. The reason is, these are not intended to be given to you till level 21, they display the lower levels so that when you do get them at level 21, they are much easier to do than if they would have been marked as level 21 recipes. I know its confusing but they were not intended to be given till you are Apprentice level (and same with later ones).

Locate Karenda Bluewine on the westernmost pier in Dallerjuba Village, north across the bay from Tanvu. He asks you to make two sets of three easy items. You need some tin ore, and use the “special recipe” for tin ingots and sheets for the quest.

Qalian Amateur — Find Narijar Daldan at Dark Horse Downs (it’s not far south of Lomshir, you’ll see it on your map.) She’ll ask you for 2 Qalian Metal Armguards and 2 Qalian Metal Blades (if you’re a weaponsmith). Bring some tin ore. There are no utility vendors here, so bring enough of your own. The closest location with a utility vendor is Lomshir.

Thestran Amateur – Find Resanna Graywing in Three Rivers by the forge. She’ll ask you to make 3 Thestran Sabatons and 3 Thestran Blades. The boots are made from two Tin Sheets and the blades from one Tin Ingot. Bring some tin ore. There are no utility vendors here, so bring enough of your own.

Apprentice Quests (Level 21-30)

You will need 200 Artisan Faction for that continent to start the quest, and 300 Artisan Faction to obtain recipes.

Qalian Apprentice– Find Valer Thanul in Ahgram (Go to the center of the city down the large street. The exact location of the Master Blacksmith you are looking for is -38431, -301, 1824 in Ahgram (-14,-11)) She’ll send you to Carul in Lomshir to get recipes for the things she wants– the NPC’s name is actually Aslak Carul is at location 16589, -8194, 7453 in Lomshir (-15,-9) so don’t run around trying to /tar Carul. Aslak Carul will proceed to give you 3 recipes in a NON-quest format… there will be no clickies in the dialog… you will right click on the NPC and receive the recipes immediately. They will go into your special recipe sections. Iron Ingot (Refining), Iron Short Haft, and Iron Small Hilt (both Finishing), so be sure to have at least 6 iron ore on you. Take the items back to Valer in Ahgram. Reward: T3 Recipe access, Resonating Powder of Rejuvination or Renewal, 10,000 crafting XP. +50(or 100) Qalian Artisans

Kojani Apprentice– Talk to Kimaka Rett in Martok. He’ll send you to Lakash Daykete, the thoroughly unpleasant master blacksmith in Ca’ial Brael, to get the recipes for the stuff he wants you to make. Bring at least 6 iron ore and use the recipes she gives you to make, for weaponsmiths, 2 metal short hafts and 4 metal small hilts. Return to Kimaka in Martok for the turn in. (See notes on Qalian Apprentice quest for odd details.) Reward: T3 Recipe access, Resonating Powder of Rejuvination or Renewal, 10,000 crafting XP. +50(or 100) Kojan Artisans

Thestran Apprentice– See Grodek in New Targonor. He’ll send you to Carind Seaforge in Bordinar’s Cleft to get the recipes for some things he wants you to make. Once you talk to Carind, you can make the necessary 1 metal short haft and 5 metal small hilts– but make sure you have at least 6 iron ore with you. Return to Grodek in New Targ to give him your shiny new hafts and hilts and voila Reward: T3 Recipe access, Resonating Powder of Rejuvination or Renewal, 10,000 crafting XP. +50(or 100) Thestran Artisans
Initiate Quests (Level 31-40)
(Thanks to Xorscha for an amazing walk through)

You will need 300 Artisan Faction for that continent to start the quest, and 400 Artisan Faction to obtain recipes.

Qalia
———-
Prerequisites:
– -7999 with Hathor and Pankor Zhi (or see hint)
– 3 Pyrite Ore

I talked to the BS trainer, Valer Thanul, in Ahgram after turning lvl31, which then gave me the quest called ” A True Qalian Crafter “. In it she told me to go to Pankor Zhi to get some inspirations. Not having it on my map I mouseovered and found Pankor Zhi to be the chunk next to Hathor Zhi. So I went via Lomshir to Pankor Zhi, the actual city, where I spend the better half of an hour to search for something to inspire me, nada though. PZ is a nice place to take a stroll, at least if you’re a varanjar which are KOS to nothing but Dwarves . Anyways what you need to do is, go to Hathor Zhi entrance and travel south down the road. Stay in the valley! Go past the Bloodletter Arena to the big ruins with the wide stairs. In proximity to those (a tad east I think, but well in viewing distance) you find a burned down tent (for the outfitter iniate quest inspiration) and a handy small ballista, which will inspire you. Use it and 30secs later you get the recipes for pyrite ingot and the spear head. Return to Ahgram, build three pyrite ingots and then the spear heads. Turn them in and congratulations to your initiate crafters title and a s***load of new recipes.

Reward:
– Qalian Smith’s Pendant, Earring lvl30, +5 Metallurgy, +5 Blacksmithing, +3 Armorsmithing, +3 Weaponsmithing
– 50 Qalia Artisans Faction
– 125,000 Crafting Experience

Hint: Hathor Zhi faction can be gained by killing mobs just north of the HZ gate and Pankor Zhi faction is supposedly gained by doing diplomacy in Lomshir, which I cannot guarantee, since Pankor Zhi has no trouble with Halgarad. I also believe it’s possible to get to the ballista from the Hathor Zhi Altar, where you can either evac to or ressurrect to. If you get guard or npc aggro try to get to the chunk border south to get rid of it. PZ guards won’t aggro you, if you stay clear of the stairs.

————————————————–

Kojan
———-
Prerequisites:
– -7999 with Ca’ial Brael and Martok
– 3 Pyrite Ore

Unlike the first three tier quests for Kojan, at least for the foreigner like me, you don’t have to go to Martok to get the quest. Go to Ca’ial Brael to Waltay Bajan, the Blacksmith Instructor there (located in the House near the crafting plateau and get the quest called ” A True Kojani Crafter “. He will then send you to Veenax Garrison near Martok to get inspired yet again. Head over to Martok Port, follow the norther shoreline (swin past the the rock that stands in the way) and head to Veenax Garrison. Even I as an outsider had the map location, so I guess all others will also. Enter Veenax Garrison and go around the center building. On the back side you’ll find a cauldron you can study, so do that and be inspired enough to know pyrite ingots and spear heads now!
Return to Ca’ial Brael, craft those ingots and spear heads, and welcome to the initiate Kojan world and yet again a bunch of new recipes, in case you haven’t done any other iniate quests.

Reward:
– Kojani Forgeworkers’s Stud, Earring lvl30, +5 Metallurgy, +5 Blacksmithing, +3 Armorsmithing, +3 Weaponsmithing
– 50 Kojan Artisans Faction
– 125,000 Crafting Experience

Hint: If you got to 400 faction in Kojan as an outsider, you probably did so in Tawar Galan, which rewards 10 faction for each workorder for Ca’ial Brael and Martok. If not, 21 one piece WO are done quite fast.

————————————————–

Thestra
———-
Prerequisites:
– -7999 with Halgarad and Dakhnarg (or see hint)
– 3 Pyrite Ore

Head over to New Targonor’s crafting district and talk to Godrek, the BS instructor to get ” A True Thestran Crafter “. He will send you to Konarthi Point, which is located SE of Halgarad or east of Dakhnarg. I leave it up to everyone how to get across half the continent, being lvl21 adventurer, I headed up north through Shrine of Flames, took an immediate right after entering Three Rivers chunk and followed the river through Spider Bluffs and Forest’s Heart, fairly easy ride, only lvl21-24 2d-3d aggro mobs which can easily be avoided. When you enter Leth Nurae chunk, get back on the road and head through to Veskal’s Exhange and further on through Valley of Heroes. Pass south through Halgarad once you reach it, and turn left at the bottom of the hill, follow the road all the way to Konarthi Point.
In Konarthi Point locate the Finishing Taskmaster. Right behind him is a Brazier, which will inspire you to craft pyrite ingots and pyrite spear heads. Build them and return to Godrek in New Targonor to receive your new title Initiate Blacksmith and tons of new receipes. Congratulations, Initiate Blacksmith.

Reward:
– Thestran Metalworkers’s Ring, Ring lvl30, +5 Metallurgy, +5 Blacksmithing, +3 Armorsmithing, +3 Weaponsmithing
– 50 Thestra Artisans Faction
– 125,000 Crafting Experience

Hint: For those filhty, lice infected beardwearers, commonly known as dwarves, which are not welcomed in either Halgarad or Dakhnarg, you might try to sneak yourself over the mountains to the east of Halgarad to avoid aggroed NPC’s. Bypass Derogar’s Post to the south, cut to the east right before Halgarad and head southwards over the mountains a bit more to the east. Good Luck. ;P You could also try to gain our favor by killing mobs east of derogars or the valley south of that.

Journeyman Quests (Level 41-50)

You will need 400 Artisan Faction for that continent to start the quest, and 500 Artisan Faction to obtain recipes.

NOTE: Sometimes the Initiate and Journeyman continental style quests DO NOT give you the recipes as they should. If you are clicking on the item for Initiate or in the right spot for Journeyman and it is not giving the recipes to you be sure to relog to desktop and back in and it should work properly. It may take a few tries if really unlucky.

Tip:
For weaponsmiths you create Polished Hafts, which take 2 ingots each, which means 15 combines for this quest. If you can get a higher level smith to make you the ingots, this will save you a lot of time. Otherwise you have to make them 1 at a time, and you need 10 per continent. A level 44+ smith can make them 5 at a time for you, or a 42 smith can make 3 at a time.

Thestra
———-
Prerequisites:

ARTIFICER QUESTS:

Style Quests (Novice):

You do not have to do the one for your home continent.

You do not have to be level 11. You can do these prior to hitting 11 and choosing a specialization. You will get less than the 5000 xp but you can do them prior to 11. I did them at 9 on my one crafter. This can be beneficial for some, I did the Qalia version while running the “Arming Hathor Zhi”, “Dune Eagle Trading Company” and “Best Artisan Ever” quest since those 3 level 8 quests take you to the same cities as the Qalian Novice Quest.

WARNING: Do NOT get quests for both continents you need at the same time. The recipe used is the same apparently, and if you complete one continent while having both quests, the recipe is removed and you can not finish the other continent quest. You’d have to abandon and restart. You need to either craft all items before turning one in, or do each quest one at a time.

OUTFITTER QUESTS

Specialization Quest

At level 11 you are given a quest allowing you to choose a specialization within you parent tradeskill. Artificers can pick Minerologist or Carpenters, Outfitters can pick Leather worker or Tailor, and Blacksmiths can pick Armor Smith or Weapon Smith. Once you pick a specialization, or sooner if you know which route you plan to take before hand, you should set the option that you do not choose to negative (the – button on the right of the bar on the skills window). This will push your skill in that other type down to 0 and allow you to put those points back into the two skill types you will need (your parent type and your specialization type). Do not leave points in the type you didn’t specialize in, or you will only hurt your ability to craft items of your specialization as well as delay when you learn new skills.

You may change specializations later on if you choose, but you will lose all recipes, including special dropped rare recipes if you do. If you change within your parent class, such as Tailoring to Leatherworking, you will not lose any skill points but you will need to change the direction of your skills to drive them in the right direction. If you change to another trade entirely, like tailoring to carpenter, you start over at level 1 with 0 skills.

Tier Quests, Recipe Quests, Continental Styles Quests

They are all basically the same thing after level 11. These are the quests that you must complete in order to learn recipes each tier for each continent. You will not need to do the novice continental style quest for your home continent.

PLEASE NOTE: the amateur (level 11) quest is NOT the same thing as the specialization quest. These both take place at level 11, but they are two separate things. Many people assume that because they chose their specialization they are now amateur crafters and should have new recipes, only to be sadly disappointed, not to mention confused.

The Tier quests take place at level 11, 21, 31 and so on, and allow you to learn more recipes from your trainers. Along with the completion of the quest, you gain a new title. From Novice, you go to Amateur, Apprentice, and upward through the ranks until you reach the top of your profession. Expect your crafting profession to change as you increase in level through each ranks, with the process slowly changing and becoming even more complex. For the tier quests you need to do them for each continent to gain recipes on those continents.

Also note: when you are asked to craft an item for these quests, these are not work orders. You must supply your own materials, so be prepared!

Along with unlocking recipes, completing each tier quest gives you 100 continental artisan faction (50 for foreign lands), as well as decent amount of crafting experience.

Note: With the new displaying of all recipes, you will end up seeing recipes that are level 18, 19, 20, etc that require the Apprentice Quest which you can’t do till level 21. The reason is, these are not intended to be given to you till level 21, they display the lower levels so that when you do get them at level 21, they are much easier to do than if they would have been marked as level 21 recipes. I know its confusing but they were not intended to be given till you are Apprentice level (and same with later ones).

Style Quests (Novice):
(Thanks to Jgok)

You do not have to do the one for your home continent.
