Directions to Nicholas
By: Leohan
Taking the path of Henge of Denravi as shown on the map of the left column, will allow you to kill Jungle Trolls along the way to maybe get some of their Tusks.
Head out the door, when you get to the first opening and the resurrection shrine to your left, turn right (South-West). Follow the brown path down into the green way. Along this green path there will be lamps. When you get to the next fork in the road, do not follow the lights, instead turn left (North-East) and cross the wood/ vine bridge. Let the corridor lead you across the map. You will cross another vine bridge, after that you will come to yet another split path, turn left (North) towards the “Ancient Eye Collector” on your mini map. After a few feet you should now see Nicholas.

Directions to Nicholas
By: Leohan

Start off in Dunes of Despair. Once out the door do a U-turn to your left side and head towards the Teleport Switch, use it to get on top of the cliff. Now head South-East. When you get to the large brown rock on your mission map/radar, watch out for the sand wurms. Keep heading towards the resurrection shrine/ Karl Jakobs [Collector] and The Arid Sea door.

You know head into the Arid Sea. Once there head East in a diagonal line. If you keep to the red dots shown on the map you won't run into much, go towards the Big statue in the horizon. Your mid point is the great giant skull with bleach bones under it. Once you get to the point of the three large rock formations set in a 3 way path. You will see to your left a leg of a statue and its body making a bridge. Nick is on this bridge. To get to him you need to turn right (South-East). Go down and around you should now see a hand of a statue sticking out of the ground. Once you get to the hand/arm go up (West) the ramp sand formation. You are now on the bridge where Nick is.

Directions
By: Leohan
Go to Beacon's Perch Out post in Prophecies. Once you are out the North door and into Deldrimor Bowl, follow the path to the clearing. When you get there turn left (South-West) then let the road funnel you to your destination. Eventually you will get to a tree in the middle of the path that divides it and an NPC named Ranger Olson just beyond it. At this point turn right (North-West), the corridor feel of the place will still lead you up naturally.
Again you will end up in a semi-clearing type of area, here by the dwarf collectors is where Nick is located, to your left on the hill with stairs.

Weekly Farming Tutorial
By: Leohan
Go out into Deldrimor Bowl and kill the level 8 Centaurs.
Start from Beacon's Perch, you can head into any direction as the entire explorable area is populated by Centaurs except the corridor that leads to Griffon's Mouth. You will only face three types of foes: warriors, rangers and monks, all of them of level 8. Centaur rangers use Winter, use its effects to your advantage. A single player of level 20 with multiple hits (e.g.: Hundred Blades) can outdamage 2 groups together and even kill a group of 4 monks at once. One single run in this place is more than enough to farm well over 15 units.

Recommendations:
To do this farm, it is recommended that you take party wide running skills to have the entire party move quickly around. Do not take a lot of damage or Toma won't be able to use his skill to eat foes.
Take some enchant removal to help kill the elemantlist pop ups quicker.
Also take a few healers to make sure Toma does not die.
nicholas-the-traveler-20120507-marga-coast-farm-branches-of-juni-berries
How To:
Go to Sunspear Sanctuary outpost, head out the South-West door into Marga Coast. There is an NPC called Chuno in the small town in front of you, he stands beside a crocodile named Toma.
To get Branches of Juni Berries you need to take Chuno's quest. You have a 3 minutes to feed Toma. For every 5 foes (red dots) Toma eats you will get 1 Juni Berry.

Head out the gate closest to you and go west towards the small with a well and a Veldt Beetle Queen. Casually attack what ever Toma is attacking to get the foes health down to 20% so he can use the skill to eat the foe and in turn you gaining a point.
Once done head back towards the town and move laterally along the wall from the outside. There will be a bunch of pop ups for you to kill.

Explorable Area:
Garden of Seborhin

nicholas-the-traveler-20120430-garden-of-seborhin
Directions
By: Leohan
Start from the outpost of Tihark Orchard. When you head out the door talk to the NPC Seborhin Protector Zuor, who is located next to resurrection shrine to your right. Click on the text box "Yes, I would like..." to enter the Garden of Seborhin explorable area.
Turn left (North-West), make your way through the foes. Head towards the Grenth resurrection shrine, at this point turn right (North-East) down the stairs in to the Garden Center. There are no foes in here, after you go down the second set of stairs you can choose to go left down or right up the stairs, it doe snot matter both take you to the other side of the Garden. The two paths indicated on the map provided.

Once you get to the other side of where you entered head up the stairs. Once outside the exterior, you should now see/ be at the Balthazar resurrection shrine. Go straight (North-East), encountering a few foes will occur again, keep on the path. Should now see a Dwayna resurrection shrine, oh and also Nick and his Yakk sitting in the corner.

Recommendations:
Running through without killing anything can prove difficult with the degen and cripple the red dot will spam on you.
I suggest a full hero team and just kill the few groups that you will encounter following my path. It will prove quicker in the long run.
If you wish to just run to him take anti hex skills and conditions or you'll find it frustrating to get past anything.

Side Notes:
The wiki maps say to go right upon entering the map. This however is the path of most resistances because of all the pop ups and foes you will encounter. heading left into the Garden its self is a far more faster and easier way to get to Nick.

Zen Daijun is filled with level 10 Afflicted. You can choose to fight your through or run past them. Be advised if you choose to jet through without any run skills or speed boosts, could end up with a long train of foes following you. Since Nicholas is not to far from the starting point to begin with.

Once you are in, head straight out through the gateway. You will first run into a large group of Afflicted , as you run into their aggro Turn right (South-East). Continue going along this path until you see a bridge with dragon statues on either side. Cross it, as you do this you will see a big building on the other side, Nicholas the Traveler and his companion are inside.
