If you’ve done the quests in Thousand Needles since the Shattering, you’d probably have completed one of the starting quests, Two If By Boat taking you by canoe from the northern tip of Thousand Needles down to the Shimmering Flats area. Now, this is a very fast canoe ride; it took about a minute to reach the other end of the Needles.

When you reach Fizzle & Pozzik’s Speedbarge, you’ll get a quest from Razzeric to build your own river boat, called Down in the Deeps.

and flippers.

Before long, you’ll be travelling in style in your own river boat. Unfortunately, it’s only usable in Thousand Needles and only built for one person. With all the novelty items in my bags/bank, it would be nice if this could be summoned via spell, like the seahorse but alas, it takes up another spot in my bank.

Under the barge, you may even find the hidden room filled with takeaway containers, a calendar and floatie.

So next time you’re in the area, see if you can find this hidden room.
