    Default Game Guide: The Elder Woods 'Lost Expedition'

    The Scholar's Mystery Unfolds...

    Legends everywhere thought that they'd explored all there was to see in the Elder Woods, but Scholar Gevyn has arrived on behalf of the Temple of Scrolls to learn the fate of the group exploring the Elder Woods' uncharted areas.

    Should you accept your mission, you'll brave the new wilds of the Elder Woods in hopes of learning the fate of the lost explorers, and earning some rare and unique treasures along the way.

    The "Lost Expedition" is a permanent addition to the Elder Woods Campaign!

    Hightlights

    • Complete the "Lost Expedition" quest to unlock your ability to loot the Lost Expedition Chest.
    • Content for Advancing Characters: Lost Expedition Set grants big XP bonuses and special survival powers!
    • Content for Max Level Characters: Elder Woods Star Stones give bonuses to Primary Stat and stacking Damage bonuses in Elder Woods!!
    • Open the Lost Expedition Chest with Expedition Keys - earned exclusively by questing for Scholar Gevyn.
    • Advancing players can use the Level 82-85 Lost Expedition equipment to gain huge XP bonuses (with super OP bonus in Elder Woods!).
    • Lost Expedition weaponry has instant 'anti-toxin' capabilities - but only if you are wearing the 5/5 set.
    • Craft the 'Impermeable' armor and helmet to survive the Poison Caverns (home of Dead Estus).
    • Collect rare components from Hedourah, Black Leaf and Dead Estus to craft the new Elder Woods 'Star Stone!'
    • Vanity wing crafting components can also be looted from Black Leaf and Dead Estus.
    • Go bonkers with the 'Voyager's Dueling Set' in 1v1 PvP that restricts item swapping, armor and helmet equipment (only).

    Visit Scholar Gevyn on the docks of Berylline Bay to accept the Lost Expedition starting quest. You'll be tasked with collecting clues from the expedition within the forested areas of the Elder Woods. Once accomplished, complete the quest to unlock the ability to loot new Lost Expedition Chests from bosses (loot below).

    Questline

    Meet with various NPCs to progress through the story of the lost Expedition, unlock new items, recipes, and more.

    Scholar Gevyn
    After starting the campaign, follow Scholar Gevyn's questiline to earn Expedition Keys which can be used to open Lost Expedition Chests.

    Complete Scholar Gevyn's quests and put on the Lost Expedition armor set (armor, helmet, and weapon) to unlock Dahl's questline.

    Dahl

    Dahl is a man at arms, hired to escort the scholarly contingent of the Lost Expedition. They all died and now Dahl is wracked with guilt. Visit him on the side of Berylline Bay opposite Scholar Gevyn to start his questline. Completing it will earn you the Impermeable Set, allowing you to survive the new Poison Caverns area.

    Complete Dahl's quests to unlock Keane's questline.


    Keane

    Keane is here because she has heard of a secret society of duelists who meet one on one, away from the prying eyes of the Temple of Scrolls, and without 'Honor,' to see who really knows their stuff. Follow her questline to earn the Duelist Armor which unlocks a new restricted PvP mode (more below).

    The New Areas

    The Poison Caverns

ID:	266950
    Enter the Poison Caverns through a portal in the Blue Abyss, but make sure to wear the Impermeable Set obtained from Dahl. You're sure to perish to the effects of the poison there without it. Here you'll find components to craft brand new jewels and vanity crafting components.

    Take on the new boss Dead Estus, an undead fungus creature that leaks corruption with every step. "Dead Estus" has a chance to drop the Radiant Corruption component (required for crafting a Star Stone), and components for the Wings of the Indigo Moth vanity.

    Enter the Black Ash Forest through a portal in the Ash Forest. Here you'll find components to craft brand new jewels and vanity crafting components.

    And, fight the new boss Black Leaf, a tree shrouded in a miasma of black caused by the long-term exposure to the cosmic corruption of Hedourah. "Black Leaf" has a chance to drop the Burning Cosmic Shell component (also required for crafting a Star Stone), and components for the Wings of the Forest Fae vanity.

    A new variant of PvP arrives with this update. Obtain the recipes for the Voyager's Dueling set from Keane's questline (complete Dahl's quests to unlock), then collect the components from the Poison Caverns.

    This new variant requires the Duelist Armor set, but otherwise lets you bring in whatever pets, weapons, and accessories, adding new dimension to the dueling experience.

    Good luck, Legends... and be on the lookout for hidden vanity loot and secret crafts!

    What else do the bosses drop anything worth looting?
    people don't want to hear the truth because they don't want their illusions destroyed

    Does the lost expedition replace the [elite] or can we expect a elite version of elder woods content anytime soon?

    Not soon. Elite is a separate consideration :-)

    It looks like fun to work on new stones to build powerful set, but i am missing new pet/s for this new content in AL. Skeleton from caverns as egg drop from Estus and burning wolf as egg drop from Black Leaf would be cool (legendary/ heroic versions).
