In my opinion, Mount Qinkai is the most beautiful Luxon area. The majority of this area was not harmed by the Jade Wind. Mount Qinkai is also so massive that you can see part of it from Pongmei Valley. Catfish, Xia and Claire will be helping me explore this wonderful area today.

Not far from where we started in Breaker Hallow, I found a quaint town that borders the Boreas Seabed area. I spoke with the resident merchant Alphemynie about what it is like to live here. She told me that it is actually quite peaceful because most of the monsters have been wiped out by smiting monks. If we needed any help exploring Mount Qinkai, she suggested that we goto Aspenwood Gate and bribe the monks with “faction” to help us. I was also able to pick up some nice green tea that they produced here. It was not cheap but definitely worth it.

Outside the town you can get a nice view of the waterfall lilies that rest on the surface of this small lake. This area seems like a great place to relax and meditate.

Further on, we found nice lovely bridge and were still able to see the waterfall in the distance.

As we approached another village, I heard the sound of a dog barking. Catfish commented that he really liked the view of the mountains from here. We entered the village and found a Canthan know as Magistrate Kin asking us for help. He lives here because the Luxons like having a trading partner. Anyway, he offered us some gold to help retrieve a golden lantern that a Yeti stole from him.

I didn’t expect to see so much of the Aspenwood Gate outpost from here.

I heard Yeti noises coming from deep inside this cave and knew that this must be where they are keeping the golden lantern.

After fighting not one, but two Yeti leaders, I found the lantern. Luckily it had not been damaged during the battle and Magistrate Kin was pleased with our job.

I gathered everyone nearby the waterfall to celebrate another successful exploration trip. Catfish was more interested in the waterfall than Xia and Claire at the end of the day.
