There are 2 Epic Quest Series with Chapters that take place wholly or partially in Ystra Highlands
Vahtos' Apprentice[edit | edit source]
The following is transcluded from Vahtos' Apprentice (Quest Series)
|Vahtos' Apprentice's - found in multiple places throughout three zones. This series rewards five pieces of non-bound Superior-quality jewelry. Obviously, you are not going to complete this series in Silverspring. See the links, below, to find all the pieces!
All the Vahtos' Apprentice items do NOT become Bound and, when you outgrow it, you can give it to a younger friend or one of your alts. Even if every character on your accounts does not finish every one of these quests, you can eventually accumulate a complete set of Physical (Vahtos' Strike) and Magical (Vahtos' Spell) accessories for your new characters.
Dailies[edit | edit source]
None of the items are bound so you are free to pass on unused leftovers to your younger characters.
