    Awesome list! Thank you so much.

    So here is what I got from this:
    1) A quest that should have been at Warden's Point - "Point Taken" has been missing since the revamp due to a missing quest giver.
    2) A couple of quests on my own list were actually deprecated, but I missed updating my list.
    3) "A Haven for Those Defiant" should have counted as Freemarch but was incorrectly categorized as Meridian.
    4) "The Outlaw" is an Iron Tombs quest both wrongly categorized as Meridian AND had bad data in it making it count for Freemarch (it shouldn't).

    Once all of the above is fixed, the net result is that there are 96 possible completable quests that should count as Freemarch quests for the achievement. BUT - seven of those are basically tutorial quests, not really zone quests (use a porticulum, learning Ascended Planar powers, etc), and not counting those leaves me with 89. Now they WILL still count, but I am leaving them as a buffer. Freemarch is a low level zone. I think there should be a buffer on the achievement.

    SO - I am also changing the number of quests needed for the achievement to 88 (out of 89 real zone quests), and leaving the 7 tutorial type quests associated with the zone as a buffer.

    These changes will NOT be in tomorrow's hotfix (that is already in the can), but will be in for next Wednesday's hotfix (or sooner if we do one sooner).

    Thanks again.

    Stonefield is VERY exact in the number of quests needed, but most are not hard to track down currently. Except for the joy that is the Miner's Pick.

    That said, SF will be seeing a pass done soon similar to what I did with Freemarch...

    The miners pick went from "oh cool help out the poor guy" to "I hope one of these skellies gets this guy and his damn pick" ;) I don't do too good with Mario Brothers types of quests, lol I finally got it, but really really annoying..especially if you want to get the achieve done.

    Pleeeeeeease make the miner's pick faction-agnostic. (Why? Because I spent way too much time getting it on my guardian rogue, that's why.)

    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)

    BTW, you probably know this, but:

    People who completed the tutorial zone before the revamp, and then did Freemarch, can now do the first quest or two in the zone again.

    So, if I'd done that, then stopped at level 7, and then come back, I could have gotten a duplicate [Farwind Blade].

    Game-breaking exploit, if you ask me. I only mention it on the forums because I am pretty sure the big raiding guilds have already taken advantage of it at this point, so you know, horse, barn-door.

    That pick was the bain of my existence for the longest time. I had to watch countless youtube videos and finally get my BF to do it for me. I got it down to a science now though.

    I always miss the hunt trophy at the bottom of the well though. That's the one I have to go back for usually.

    Not that it affects anything long-term with this achievement being adjusted, but I killed the Guardian Scout earlier and did the quest, and it did not increment the Freemarch quest counter - still at 94/95.

    'cause I'm at either 70/72 or 71/72 and the only advice I've found is that I need to try and hunt down specific rare mobs that drop quest initiators... which kind of sucks, but I imagine I'll get there eventually.

    I got the achievement a few days ago, without knowing about this thread. Else I would've mentioned this earlier.

    Adriana Weaver in Scarlet Gorge will start the Quest "The Living and the Dead".
    That also counts to Freemarch, and it was also the last quest for my achievement.

    Thank you sooo much for fixing this. Of course I can't log in yet to see that it has been, but I've got three characters at 93/95 and it's been driving me absolutely crazy trying to find what I missed.

    Well just to be VERY clear, this is NOT in today's patch - today's patch was already in the can when I did the work yesterday. These Freemarch fixes will be in the following patch - next Wednesday at the latest, or earlier if something critical requires a sooner patch.
