Jobe Portals


Image


Mostly useful for lower characters that might not have acquired their Garden and/or Sanctuary keys, these portals are found in the three sections of Jobe; Jobe Harbor, Jobe Market and Jobe Plaza. By donating an amount, depending on which portal, you are allowed access to the portal for a few hours. Note that you only are required to donate credits for using the portal from Jobe, using it to travel to Jobe is free.

In the map below, courtesy of Atlas of Shadowlands, you can see the position of the portals, as well as the portal technicians that hang out around them.

Have a chat with the portal technician, you can't miss him.. he's the big-boned atrox in the flashy suit:

The Harbor:


In addition to using the three various Portals, you can also get to the Shadowlands through a door:

The door leads through to Jobe Research - where you can then choose whether to go to Jobe Backyard if you are sub level 50. Or you can head through to Nascense.

With your feet firmly on the ground in Jobe. Now you have the shadowlands waiting in anticipation of your next move. Whether you are Clan, Omni or Neutral, lets have a look at how you can travel around.

Traveling with garden statues

Each main SL zone has statues dotted around; these look like

Redeemed StatueUnredeemed Statue


The statues lead into the redeemed and unredeemed faction gardens or sanctuaries. To enter one of these statues, you have to not only be the correct faction (Clan = Redeemed, Omni = Unredeemed), but you either need an insignia or a garden key. The insignia has to match the statue you want to enter, you are not able to use insignias to enter sanctuaries.

Click the keys and links to see the corresponding guides.




When you have garden keys...

You can also use statues that are positioned around Rubi Ka to travel to the garden or sanctuary you have a key for.

Unredeemed (Omni) Statue
Southern Artery Valley - 1030x2000

1030 x 2000, Scere Swamp, Southern Artery Valley
Eroded Ancient Statue

Image
Omni and Neutral Use Only


Located in the outskirts of the swamps of Southern Artery Valley is the Statue that will allow for transportation to any Unredeemed Garden or Sanctuary. Left click the Key in your inventory and then left-click it on the statue and within seconds you will find yourself in the middle of the Garden/Sanctuary. The quickest route there is to use the whompahs to get to Outpost 10-3 and then head South-West.

Redeemed (Clan) Statue
Wailing Wastes - 1170x1500

1170 x 1500, Daumeland, Wailing Wastes
Shining Ancient Statue

Image
Clan and Neutral Use Only


The statue to transport you to Redeemed Gardens and Sanctuaries is located in Wailing Wastes just south from the Whompahs. Just like the Unredeemed statue, simply use your Garden or Sanctuary key on the statue and you will be transported in a few moments.


Traveling from a garden

When you are in a SL garden, you will find that there are statues in there that are the same as those you found in the playfield. There are also transportation and transit statues. To go somewhere in the zone that the garden is in, you will want to use one of the statues around the main part of the garden. To go to a different zone, you will need to possess the appropriate garden key and then you can use

Traveling up through the Shadowlands

Ergo will give you "free" passage into the Shadowlands zones up until access to Inferno, assuming you are the correct level. If you are not the correct level, then Ergo will ask you to take on tasks for him.

Nasence Free access via Jobe Research
Elysium Access via portals in Jobe market and Jobe Plaza or Quest
Scheol Level 80 Requirement or Quest
Adonis Level 130 Requirement or Quest
Penumbra Level 160 Requirement or Quest and
Hyper-Radiation Protection Skin and Glasses
InfernoIce Golem Molar (sided) and Inferno Boots
PandemoniumPure Novictum Ring for the Artillery Unit (for access into Pandemonium you can use ANY Pure Novictum Ring, even if you are unable to wear it) and a Hold Hell at Bay.

As stated a little while ago, up until Inferno you get free access. However for Penumbra, to survive the cold you are going to need to get your hands on your Hyper-Radiation Protection Skin and Glasses! For Inferno and Pandemonium, you are going to need to do some work to get yourself protection from the environment in the areas and in the case of Pandemonium, to get your ring to actually enter the zone. For inferno, you will need to get yourself a pair of Lava Protection Boots and Skin Galvanizer. For Pandemonium you will need a Pure Novictum Ring for the Artillery Unit (for access into Pandemonium you can use ANY Pure Novictum Ring, even if you are unable to wear it) and a Hold Hell at Bay.

Are you a MP / Fixer?

Then damn you are lucky! Both of these professions are able to warp themselves to the SL gardens, assuming that they are in possession of the appropriate key and nano program. Guides coming on this very soon!!
