Prisoner escorts

    I have seen a few prisoners in Brigand camps that spawn by the SB ranger camps. I have tried to take a few of them but they never tell me where they want to go. Do they have a set destination or can you take them to any city? Will they go by gate or do they have to be walked. I read the escort guide but didn't see anything on these. The guide said escorts never appeared outside of town. I guess they forgot about these.
  2. Double click the prisoner & you will get his/her destination gump, which you will need to accept. You can then walk OR gate your escort to the destination. [​IMG]

    Click or double-click them ... a conversation gump should pop up with something like "I must get to my destination ..." There should be a "Continue" button that you click and you will be told where to take them (city or dungeon).

    Typically for a city escort the bank or an inn will trigger the thank you response. For dungeons, I am not sure but I think you need to get them close to or just inside the entrance of one.

    The escorts outside of New Haven may require the use of a Gate spell if the destination is not accessible vioa public moongate. These folks do not recall or Sacred Journey with you.

    Escorts in the New (and old) Haven area all go somewhere in New Haven ... including the ones that are brigand prisoners.

    I must have missed the continue button for sure. I will check the next time I see one. Thanks all

    If I remember correctly, the prisoners just want to go to any city. You also gain more Compassion from escorting a prisoner than a regular escort.

    I haven't had a chance to see any yet as I have been building another character. Maybe in a day or so I can search them out again. I will try just going to the closest city and see how that works.

    Despise 1 (upstairs lizardmen) has a camp spawn N of the entry stairs. A prisone spwns there about 50% of the time.

    If I remeber correct, you cant simply see to where the prisoner wants to go. He lies in chains and doubleclicking him (or her) releases him and he starts escorting you. Normal escorts do ask before they follow you and have to be accepted. Cant remember that with the prisoners. (I do them as often as I see them but i can forget really fast. [​IMG] )
    To see where he wants to go, you can choose the quest-button from your paperdoll (in 2D, not shure on KR). Any escort is listed as a normal quest there and you can get the correct destination for it.
    There are many places for brigand camps with prisoners. Thought not every brigand has one. Worth a try could be those camps between Haven Moongate and Old Haven. I ve seen there several prisoners but was too busy trying to pich the chests there. Only take care not to kill those prisoners by accident. (I use to clear such a camp with a blade spirit. Saidly the prisoner often fells to it too if i havent lured the brigands away far enough. Btw the prisoners dont have any loot. Only what they carry on their paperdoll.)

    yeah ... and in dungeons, you have to gate them out because they won't (or at least didn't) cross the server line at the entrance.

    That's why I like the New Haven area for keeping Compassion high ... 2 or 3 every couple days keeps me right at the top of the Virtue and goodness knows they're plentiful enough!
  11. Another handy thing to know about prisoner escorts for those trying to gain compassion: Prisoner escorts have no timer on them. Normally after an escort you must wait 5 minutes before you can get another escort. Not so with prisoners however, as they are very happy to be free and will give you the quest as quickly as you can find and free them. Enjoy [​IMG]

    Probably the easiest prisoner to get to is the one in the Orc Caves (Orc Brute also spawns elsewhere in these caves lots of people would have runes to his location). In the lower corner of first level there is a prisoner in one of the cells that constantly respawns.

    Becareful though when you recall inside the cell. I have had a scout waiting for a target and I made a good one unprepared.
