[AP] Compilation of Lake Doric maps and resources: Optimized map completion, collection achievements, Jade Shard nodes, leather farm, and dynamic events

Lake Doric for me is a much welcomed return to the lush green countryside of the Kryta region, and disregarding the bloodstone-crazed centaurs, it’s the friendliest of the LS3 maps. I recommend you explore everything yourself first, and if you find it hard to explore some things, here are maps to help. Preview screenshot.

 

Jade Shards

Link – There are around 16 fragments of Jade Shard nodes which you can harvest to buy new minis and weapon skins. Unlike Winterberries, Jade Fragment nodes spawn randomly in the marked areas, rather than fixed spawn points. Jade Shard drop rate note.

 

Harathi Strongboxes (Leather Farm)

Link – On the northeast area are lootable chests and centaurs mobs you can kill for salvageable hides. Credit and Static Map: [FARM]

 

Cin Business Achievement

Link – Collect and loot 18 different items to get a Bloodstone/Empyreal converter item. Hover over the map circles for screenshot and tips on that collectible. White Mantle Rations are looted automatically so is not on the map. Credit and Static Map: dulfy

 

Letters from E Achievement

Link – Earn 5 AP by reading these 7 letters.

 

Master of Puppets Achievement

Link – Earn 8 AP by reading these 20 letters in the Confessor’s End mission; don’t leave the mission instance after you complete it and you’ll be able to roam to find the letters. Credit and Static Map: dulfy

 

Lake Doric Event Timers

Link – This map shows all the events that can happen in Lake Doric, and some collections require succeeding them, so you can use the LFG to hop events. To turn off event icons on the site, use this link. Here’s also a static map image by sb22284.

 

Lake Doric Map Completion

Link – Lake Doric is likely the fastest Kryta region map that can reward a Black Lion Key. Right click on the zone on the web map then: Map -> Draw Completion Route to see a trace of every map locations to complete. Another way to reach the Peach Tree area is from the centaur camp; behind their huts are some stone rubble that you can climb.

 

Lake Doric Mastery Insights

Link – Follow the map completion route to reach two of the mastery insights. For the others “Lakeside Bazaar” use updrafts, and for “Melandru’s Refuge” simply jump on the crack right on its ledge.

 

Inventory Cleanup Tool

Link – Your bags may fill up quickly with collection and miscellaneous items, use this API-key tool to sort out junkable items, and this Virtual Keychain for items you want to keep like keys and currencies.

 

All of these nodes and routes can be viewed in game using the GPS overlay app.
