A mission location is a staging area that functions like an outpost and allows player parties to enter a mission. Like outposts, they offer relatively few services.

Typical mission location services

Services rarely available at mission locations

World map appearance

Outposts are annotated on the World Map (default key "M") using different icons in different campaigns:

MissionIcon FactionsMissionIcon Nightfall Mission icon (Elona) Nightfall Mission icon (Realm of Torment) Hard Mission 3 sword
Prophecies Factions Nightfall Realm of Torment Hard Mode

Note: The map icon will update depending on the Mission rewards you have received:

  • In Prophecies, the icon shows 1 sword pointing to the right after completing the mission and 1 sword pointing to the left after completing the bonus.
  • In Factions, the icon shows 1, 2, or 3 broadswords (last one with a red tassel), respectively, after receiving the Standard, Expert, or Master's reward.
  • In Nightfall and the Realm of Torment, the icon shows 1 Kournan sword, 2 Kournan swords, or 2 Kournan swords and 1 sunburst spear after receiving the Standard, Expert, or Master's reward, respectively.
    • If the mission is not yet available to a character, it will show an outpost icon on the world map.
  • In Hard mode, the mission icon is red if incomplete and turns gold after completion, with flamberges replacing the swords and spears of the normal mode icons.


  • In Tyrian and Canthan Mission Locations, the Party List window will have an Enter Mission button; Elonian missions are entered by talking to the NPC displaying a green crown.
  • Nightfall Mission Locations tend to have more services and NPCs than the other Campaigns.
