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 retainer's level determines the rewards available from quick exploration. The retainer's gear will determine whether the rewarded item is high quality or not. With most crafting materials, the retainer's gear will also determine whether you'll be able to receive two of that material instead of one.

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.
