i found Ace, Powerful, Under Fire and Asunder in the Echo: Rikti Crash Site in Ouro. It's impossible to find Eyewitness and Scarred there. it's BS. Please put the badges back in the RWZ where they belong, managers.

As with Faultline and Echo:Faultline's badges, I suspect there may be some new ones and Scarred and Eyewitness have been moved... if I wasn't so squishy as a lvl 32 Blaster, I'd be hunting them right now...

Lvl 23 on the Shadow Shard. Hunt on my level!

 

I can try and see what I can find in the next couple days.

I saw an odd badge pop up in my display... "They Still Walk Among Us" or to that effect. The info says it is for all the exploration badges in RWZ, but when I look in the exploration badges I can't find the listings for Scarred and the one on the building east of the ship. Never got a notice for them either.

Scarred in Echo: Rikti Crash Site ---  loc 3216.4  -137.3  -3198.1

 

On a broken fragment of road next to a destroyed building.  A wrecked car is pointed at it.

 

Communications Specialist (new badge I think) --- loc 959.6  171.3  -1174.4

 

Next to a red and white communications tower antenna.

Shielded: -- loc 2934.4 -10.3 -6249.4

 

around 11:57 on the clock if the ship is the clock face, right up against the shield

 

Getting Shielded, Eyewitness, Scarred, Communications Specialist, Ace, Asunder, Under Fire, and Powerful awards the Crash Landed Accolade.

Dang it, I didn't grab the exact coordinates earlier, but both Powerful and Under Fire are in equivalent locations of where they were in RWZ.  Powerful is in the Power Station in The Bulge (the station itself is at roughly 176.0 96.0 -736.4 (unfortunately I don't have exact badge coodinates), and Under Fire should be about 1634.7 42.5 -993.6 ish (I forget on which side of the wall though).

Ace: /loc 1360.0 292.5 -276.9 (On the outstretched hand of the statue of Mustang)

Assunder: /loc 3954.1 34.0 -3858.8 (On top of the pillbox)

Why move badges?  I can't speak for Faultline, but Rikti War Zone had 14 badges.  They moved 6 and added 2 to the Echo standardizing the number of badges at 8 per zone.

This is exactly the reason. There's also plans to add badges to the PVP zones and add PVP exploration accolades, a thread asking for suggestions will go up soon.

A little hint for Asunder,  approx 161 yards south east of Point Du Hoc Marker, atop the pillbox.

Which come to think of it, the locations for Ace, Powerful and Asunder are pretty close if not exactly where they were in RWZ.

959.2 171.0 -1175.2  it is next to the comm tower and a group of L43+ Rikti  :)

 

 

Eyewitness: -- loc 1820.3 471.3 -4605.7    532 yards northeast of Sunken Road marker atop the northwest corner of the tall but demolished building

These badges aren't triggering for me. I follow the instructions but nothing happens. Any screenshots? Coordinates are frustrating.

Are you in Ritki War Zone or the Echo Rikti Crash Site zone?

But nobody wants to go to Rikti Crash Site, so why force us to with badges?  It's not like it's Galaxy city where it got completely removed and it still has badges, that makes sense.  Rikti War Zone >>IS<< Rikti Crash Site, just better designed, same with Faultline.  So why put badges in Echo zones that are exactly the same zone?  The PvP zones having exploration badgse makes logical sense, adding badges to echo zones where their only purpose is historical preservation makes no sense what so ever.

Echo: Dark Astoria set the precedent for revamps of old zones to have their own unique set of badges separate from the "live" revamped zone. Consistency is the goal here.

I have to agree. Standardizing zone badge counts is one thing, but creating whole zones that only exist to store exploration badges for "consistency" seems oxymoronic.  Just remove badges in zones that are in excess of the standard count.


Where are we going, and why am I in this hand basket?

If we're going by precedent, shouldn't the two Echo zones added before Echo: Dark Astoria with no badges have set it?

 

Back on Live, there was only Echo: Galaxy City and Echo: Dark Astoria, and they both had 8 badges and an accolade. See here under Transfer Points. That's the precedent. Atlas, Faultline and Rikti Crash Site were not on the Echo transporter on Live; I added them.
