I just came on here to ask that same question - I'm doing the levequest for Goldsmithing and I cannot find a way there. I went to the mines as well, and unfortunately, cannot get past this one room with aggro to get all the way on the other side and see if there is an exit.
I then have another Goldsmithing levequest where it's asking me to turn my supplies into Vanicie (Camp Broken Water), and when you get to that really narrow path, I keep getting aggro by buzzards. So, I started looking up in sky for them (like UFOs lol) and there was no enemy on my radar when, all of a sudden, one just starts attacking me.
It's irritating as I want to turn in these two leves.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
