This page will explain exploring in the world of Akami.
Exploring is used to search underground areas and make maps of areas above and below ground.
Exploring only requires one thing.
- Cartography kit
Cartography kits are used to create maps of areas. There are some different kinds of kits.
- Basic Kit
- Surface Kit
- Underground Kit
The basic kit is what everyone starts out with. It allows you to chart aboveground locations to a medium degree. For example, if you had just discovered the Redstone Border, you would fill in the area on your map where the Redstone Border is only.
The surface kit is what every non-exploring adventurer needs. When you have this kit, you chart the location you found, plus a small area around it. For example, if you had just discovered the Redstone Border, you would fill in the area on your map where the Redstone Border is along with some of the desert that's past it.
Anyone who's serious about exploring needs an underground kit. This kit allows you to chart above and below ground locations. This means that, if you explored the Redstone Border and a cave in the wall of it, you could chart the Redstone Border (only) and the interior of that cave.
Exploring is beneficial in that you can create your own maps of various locations.
The cons of exploring are that you can't go upwards into the heights, you can only go down into the depths.
Benefits of Professing
Professing in this skill means you can explore the darkest caves and chart the largest areas.
