Vanguard Original Racial Starting Locations Guide

Vanguard Original Racial Starting Locations Guide by Androsynth

Hi all, I am a relatively new player and I have run through IoD multiple times. But I started a Kurashasa character the other day and i ran him through the original racial starting zone and it was amazing. The diplo questline in Qur’xa temple was the best questline in VG I have experienced so far.

So I want to implore all the other new and returning players: check out these great zones! To help get you there, I created a guide to help you find all the original starting locations.
