Trivia[edit]

  • The scout system was introduced to help players more used to a traditional MMO questing system find recognizable goals, give a checklist of things to do, and to point them to locations where they may run into dynamic events.[1]
  • Dragon's Stand and Bloodstone Fen are the only PvE map without any scouts.
  • During Living World Season 1, there were special scouts called Living World Scouts that provided information on important locations for the Living World story. During the Scarlet Briar finale, this service was replaced with normal scouts.
