    From what I am currently aware, cartography can only make maps of the original lands of Britannia. No Malas, Ilshenar, Tok.

    Just curious since I personally haven't tried it. But can you make maps of the new SA lands with cartography? I am betting no based on the past expansions.

    If not I really hope they can do their magic and let us make more maps for different locations. Maybe even dungeons? But at least the new lands.

    In a nut-shell, maps need some new work. At least eventually.

    what would be the point? with the new radar system you have all the map you need...are you thinking more from a decorative standpoint?

    Yeah, kind of, hehe. I just love how the maps look when you make them :p

    That and I still think cartographers need a bit more added to their crafting system. Right now it basically consists of a local map, city map, world map, and navigation map. However it's only limited to Tram and Fel. The only other thing they can make is the Tattered Wall Map.

    cartographers should be able to mark spots on the map, and then make a scroll that can be sold to others. Points of interest maps... that sort of thing.

    It's been so long since I was treasure hunting. Is there any treasure maps that can be done in the new lands for treasure hunters? I don't think so, but it would be a good shot in the arm for treasure hunting.

    Uhu ???

    I get yelled at when I suggest that Soulstone use could get a better warning message to avoid incidents (which DO happen) that wipe away players' hard earned skill points because this would use programmers' time best used elsewhere but then this time could be spend on making maps doeable for other areras of the game but without much practical use ?

    Hallo ??

    I DO think that treasure hunting needs love, but that regards the loot in the chests which currently is most of the time useless...........
