So here's a question for the queue... I'm trying to get my explorer achievements. My map is entirely revealed, but I still haven't gotten the achievement to pop. Is there a site or addon that tells you the locations of all the points you need to discover? A list of specific coordinates would be really nice and save hours of riding in circles around greyed out areas of the map trying to get the map to reveal.

On the achievement menu, go to the Exploration tab, find the zone you are trying to explore, and click on it. Everything not in green still needs to be uncovered.Helped me a lot when I was doing it, particularly with Bloodmyst, where there's one area that isn't obvious on the map because it's underwater and only shamen have any quests that go there.

The Cartographer addon has a feature called "Foglight" whereby you can colour any part of the map that you haven't explored. You'd think that the default WoW UI would be sufficient, but it isn't. There's always a tiny bit that you've missed and can't even see that you've missed. (Got my Explorer title yesterday :D )

It's going to take patience and (preferrably an epic flyer). But it helps to use the achievement button to find out what you missed, and if you can't figure out where it is, WoW wiki generally has some info on sub zones.Most of the tricky places to find are islands off the coast.(Hit "the explorer" at level 77)

As they've said, check your Achievements and see what zones/areas are still grayed out. Reply here with the list, and I'm sure one of us can help you out.And I second the idea that you install the Cartographer addon, and enable Foglight. I changed the default settings to show the 'fog' of undiscovered areas to a deep purple shade with roughly 80% opacity. With Foglight turned on, it's usually very obvious what you've missed.Good luck, and like I said, reply with the areas that are still grayed and we'll see what we can do.--Missescake the Explorer @ level 72, Khaz Modan-US
