Quick Exploration

Retainer Ventures
Upon reaching level 10, retainers can undertake quick exploration ventures. Retainers assigned to quick exploration will always come back with a single item, which will remain unknown until the venture is completed. The amount of experience earned will vary depending on the item found. Your retainer's stats (either Gathering or their Average Item Level) will also determine the goods found, with some items only being found at very high stats. Quick Exploration has the largest list of items available as a reward, including many from 1.x that aren't obtainable anymore!

The below list are of those items unique to Quick Exploration. As of Patch 4.0, the retainers need the following minimums to have access to the complete list of items:

  • DoM/DoW: ilvl 295+
  • BTN/MIN: gathering 940+
  • FSH: gathering 840+
