How can I write a guide about an achievement like [World Explorer]? It’s a pretty simple concept, just ride/fly around and discover all the areas.
Well, this isn’t so much a guide as it is a hand pointing you to a pretty helpful resource, in case you haven’t found it yourself already:
This site has maps of every zone including the subzones which are required for the achievements! It also has both a compiled “satellite view” map along with the regular in-game maps.
I found it when I was doing my own Explorer achievements, when I simply couldn’t figure out where some small zone was.
So, if you haven’t done this achievement yet and you don’t feel like running around a zone searching aimlessly for that last scintilla of the zone you have yet to discover… check this site out!
Edit: A few addons which highlight unexplored areas of your map have been pointed out to me. If you’re the type to rather keep all your stuff in your game and not have to deal with a browser while you play, these addons might be for you:
- Achievement Guide: Lovin’ Squirrels and Killin’ Snakes.
- Achievement Guide: A Fool for Love! <3
- Achievement Guide: Shop Smart, Shop Pet… Smart!
