Prospector Zeke has a few hide-and-seek quests for people to do, one of the first ones that newbies like us run into is the search for the Smiths. Here’s the locations of those Smiths so that you can more easily find them.
Commons Smith: The very back of the Fairgrounds, look behind a tree between two tents.
Ravenwood Smith: You can find him between the Myth School building and where the Death School campus used to be, go up against the back wall.
Unicorn Way Smith: Look near the entrance to the Hedge Maze. Tucked into a nook that makes him difficult to see while approaching, pretty much against the left wall as you walk towards the Hedge Maze.
Golem Court Smith: Directly opposite the Golem Tower, standing next to a tree, the Dragon’s Mouth Cave entrance is nearby.
Shopping District Smith: Between buildings. After entering the Shopping District, walk towards Olde Town. Upon passing the first tree turn right, and go between the buildings. He’ll be waiting next to a tree near the back wall.
Olde Town Smith: Right next to Gloria Krendell. After entering just walk down the incline, take the first right onto the road that branches between two buildings. Cannot miss him.
Cylcops Lane Smith: In the park area behind Nolan Stormgate. Go through the stream towards the far wall. He’s standing next to a tree.
Triton Avenue Smith: Near the waterfalls. Once passing into the middle-area with Susie Gryphonbone and Duncan Grimwater, you will cross a bridge. Turn left immediately. Cross two streams of water and viola.
Firecat Alley Smith: At the Fireglobe Theater. Look on the right side, next to the tail of one of the fire cat statues.
Colossus Boulevard Smith: Look near the Gobbler Palace.
