  1. Checking your friends, group, and/or guild lists for players in Auridon (Vulkhel Guard), Glenumbra (Daggerfall), and Stonefalls (Ebonheart).
  2. Asking in Zone, but this option isn’t very popular and may wake up the chat trolls.
  3. Use the Navigator system that is made up of Caravans (Cart Icon) or Ferries (Anchor Icon) located in the main city of each zone to get you to one of the zones listed above
  4. If you have completed the initial Ebonheart Pact Homestead quest, you can recall to your house (Ebonheart Inn) in Ebonheart.
