Your inventory now has a new spot, alongside your feet. By using PLACE FEET, you can place an item you’re holding alongside you (at your feet).

It is now possible to skip over Zul Logoth when heading further east. BUY PASS at the departure gates of Khazar's Hold or Zhindel's Post to travel the express route. You can still BUY TICKET at any departure gate to travel to and from via the old mine cart route.
