Highlands of Avalon

From Curious Expedition 2 Wiki
The Highlands of Avalon DLC

The Highlands of Avalon DLC features a brand new island type (the Highlands) with new tile types, items, locations, enemies, and recruitable characters. Once the DLC is activated it will expand possibilities across the entire game, both in Campaign Mode and Director Mode. This is the first paid DLC after the release of The New Director which was a free DLC.

The Highlands[edit]

The Highlands Map Screen

The Highlands island type is surrounded by water and is the homeland of the Picts tribe. It is a very rocky island with valleys, hills, and lakes. It has unique locations like the Lake Serpent or the Giant Horn. Furthermore, the Highlands feature tiles of different heights, making it important to traverse the lands strategically.

The main tile type of the highlands island is the windswept plain. Some of these tiles are higher in altitude and are called highland plains, while others are almost at sea level and are called lowland tiles. Most of the time there are steep hills between the lowland and highland tiles, but sometimes you will find foothills that cost a lot less sanity to climb.

Locations & New Tribe[edit]

Giant Horn[edit]

Your explorer can blow into the Giant Horn to either soothe prey animals or agro enemies around you. The soothing sound will let more prey animals appear around you. You can also leave some offerings at the horn and gain some Standing Inline131.png.

Wishing Well[edit]

Dice Challenge to climb inside Wishing Well

The Wishing Well is some kind of magical well with which you can trade. You can also try to climb inside in the hope to find something interesting. You can do a Dice Challenge to see if you manage to climb inside or if you injure yourself or a trek member by doing it.

Pointing Statue[edit]

A Pointing Statue often points towards another pointing statue. When you read the signs well by succeeding a Dice Challenge you get the location of the next pointing statue. At the feet of the last pointing statue, you get rewarded by a pile of offerings that you can steal. You can also decide to leave them there and get + 5 Standing Inline131.png.

Wild Kobolds[edit]

Metting some Kobolds

When finding a group of peaceful wild kobolds you can barter with them and also recruit one of them. And last but not least you can make a Dice Challenge and hear a riddle. If you succeed in the challenge the Kobolds will give you some valuable goods.

Lake Serpent[edit]

The Lake Serpent

Sometimes you will find a Lake Serpent with a red aggro zone which means it will attack you if you are close to it. If you find a blue zone, however, it is a peaceful Lake Serpent. You can approach it and give it something. It will dive underwater and give you something in return.

Precious Clydesdale Herd[edit]

Clydesdale Herd

You can hunt or tame one of the Clydesdale horses. For both, you have to perform a Dice Challenge.
