This thread is probably going to be spoilerific; be warned!

Now that the Great Zero has been opened I thought I would be a good idea to post a topic about the Markers and the Marker Locations.

I ran all around and looked for all th Markers I could. I completed the first set of Markers and got the link added to my Nexus. I then collected about four more and couldn't find anything else.

I assume that we will be able to get more of them once more areas are opened up.

Yeah, you can't get all 15 of the second set yet. We'll have to wait for more of the city for that one... and probably for some markers to show up in the Neighborhoods. There aren't any in there currently.

I found it much more fun collecting these this time around. The first time I did it alone as part of the expansion pack, however this time it was much interesting playing watching everyone else scramble for the next Marker with me.

I've managed to find five of the red markers so far.

Honestly, if the markers aren't there in the neighborhoods (and they don't seem to be), I can't see them showing up there, ever.

I see the GZ and the KI operating together much like the Wiimote and the Wii do.

That sensor bar on the Wii? It's just two lights. You could replace it with two candles, if you wanted to.

It's the Wiimote that actually acts as a sensor. It sees the two lights, and knows where it is with respect to them.

Ditto for the GZ and the KI, I think.

The GZ is just a big shining light. It's a 'special' light, in that it uses some form of neutrinos or radio waves or some other form of radiation we may not even know about yet to 'paint' the cavern with 'light' for calibration. The KI can see this 'light' and since it's probably multiple wavelengths mixing together to form specific patterns at specific places, it marks those places that are 'special' with a marker.

Meaning it's the KI that decides to show a marker at a place, it's the KI that records the 'physical' location of those markers (with respect to magnetic fields or some other form of Earthly measurement that shifts over time (otherwise there would be no need for calibration)), and then delivers them to the GZ for the GZ to find out exactly where 'it' is and where 'you' are at all times.

Which means that if there aren't any markers in the 'hood, then there won't ever be, unless someone reshapes that crystal with special tools, etc.

Or that's the way I see it. I may be entirely wrong.

I figure the remaining markers are either scattered throughout Ae'gura ONLY (thereby explaining why most are there already... it's for ease of calibration) OR something is REALLY wrong and a few of the special locations are scattered out far across the cavern lake on other islands, or possibly right over water, though I doubt that Cyan would do that, since it would make the task plainly impossible, and hence why I suspect the rest are simply in Ae'gura, since the likelyhood of a marker ACTUALLY being in a reachable location ICly if the markers are semi-random decreases exponentially the farther away from the GZ you get.

True. I guess I'm just used to there being markers in the 'hoods from Prologue/To D'ni.

It would be more fun if the markers were shifted around to fool all the old hands. Muhahaha...

there's 6 of the red lights (total 21), you have to jump off the bridge to get it.

so far I have only found the marker in [spoiler]the Great Zero Entry Hall[/spoiler]

Are the others still in the city or have they been moved?

There are quite a few in the city, but there are some in other places also. Just not in the bevins.

Every time I go into the City, the game acts really buggy and crashes.

I submitted a ticket for it last night, but I am currently only able to go into the city via my linking book, and not the Nexus.

...bummer.

It's pure speculation on my part, but I was wondering if perhaps we're only seeing markers near the GZ (in the City, but not in the Bevins) because the machinery isn't actually operating, yet (spinning and attracting electrical arcs)? Perhaps once the DRC puts the thing in motion, it will send a stronger signal and reach the Bevins at the edges of the cavern?

I know the topic title says "Spoilers" but it would be better to use the spoilertag for major spoilers.
So ppl still can decide if they want to have a minor or major spoiler. :wink:
