Return to Ekrund Clues

One of the tasks in Warhammer Online's latest Live Event is to collect clues.  There is a quest to gather them: Stealing a Birthright for Destruction and Rediscovering the Past for Order.  Each requires 10 clues and you must do it 10 times to complete the task.  That's a lot of clues.

Everytime you complete a quest, you'll also reveal a text entry in the Pieces of the Puzzle section of the task list.  These provide cryptic information about the next stage of the event.  There is nothing to act on, so don't fret too much about figuring out what it all means.

So where do you find clues?  The first means is by clickable objects called Ancient Dwarf Plaques.  You'll find these in ruins in Ekrund and Mount Bloodhorn Battlefield Objectives.  The best way to find them is look for a cluster of players camped at odd locations.  You can also find them at the Kron Komar Gap Public Quest.

The other way to obtain clues is off of the corpses of your fallen enmies.  If they have the quest in progress, there is a chance that they will drop a clue as loot.  This is rolled upon if you are in a group.  I've received most of my clues via this method so far.  No way am I going to camp a spot instead of fighting.

Finally, it should be noted that this live Event will be around for several weeks (I asked).  So there is no need to rush when it comes to clues.  I'm going to let the campers camp, then when they are done go pick them up if I have not earned enough from fighting.
