Collections: The Forsaken City

I decided I need to buckle down and get some of the collections I’ve had lingering on Kasul done, and I wanted to collect some lore books I hadn’t read so after coming to AB I decided to spend some quality time in The Forsaken City. There are lots of collections there, including lots of books so seemed like a good place to go.

The shiny collections went rather quickly, though disappointingly they gave no item rewards. The book pages though were a completely different matter, and after a couple trips with no books completed I decided to do a little math and see what I was getting myself into. The first thing to say is that for all the books available in the zone there are only five (!) page spawns, which makes things a little tedious to begin with. Here’s the chart I made:

Forsaken City Book Collections:
A History of the Vah Shir, Vol I   (9) DONE!
A History of the Vah Shir, Vol II (5) 1
Ardathium, Vol I                                (5) 1
Ardathium, Vol II                              (7) 4
Ardathium, Vol III                            (7) 1
Ardathium, Vol IV                             (6) 5
Ardathium, Vol V                               (5) 1
Chronicle of Gromok, Vol I            (7) 3
Chronicle of Gromok, Vol II          (7) 4
Chronicle of Gromok, Vol III        (6) 1
Chronicle of Gromok, Vol IV         (5) 3
From Pond to Paladin, Vol I          (7) 4
From Pond to Paladin, Vol II        (10) 5
The First Vision                                   (5) 1

91 pages, 14 books (34 missing)

It shocked me a little… 91 pages possible from five spawns means a ton of time harvesting. I have finished one of the books, incidentally one of the two that got me intrested in these… History of the Vah Shir Vol I. With Odus coming soon the early history of the Kerran people and why they split into two races is something I was interested in researching. Hopefully with a few more trips I’ll be able to finish all these books and then move on to other collections!
