Exploration Badges[]

Badge tourist 01.png Dark Mystic

Some claim the reason the spirits walk the streets of Dark Astoria is the fact that there is a powerful Ley Line nexus in the middle of Moth Cemetery.

Badge tourist 01.png Seeker of the Unknown

This tomb is used to represent the thousands of heroes who gave their lives in the Rikti War.

Location: due west of the Moth Cemetery marker by about 166 yards there is a tall mountain. At the base of the mountain is a small tunnel leading into the catacombs.

This cairn was once the location of a rift to the Netherworld, but has since been closed.

Location: very near the NE corner, there's a rock formation which is cave-like in shape. The badge itself does not appear but is granted right at the foot of the formation's sloping ground.
