That being said, who knows if new updates might affect this achievement later. I ran this on a new save.

These locations are according to the official forums, posted by the admins. You must actually map each location using charcoal for it to count, which can be annoying since a lot of charcoal can be heavy. I suggest putting a stash in each region where you can store necessary supplies.

Each location may be one of two types: Icons and Location Triggers. Every location will show up on your screen as having been found. I suggest you map every time that happens. Also, make sure that locations that you find that are icons actually show as icons.

Here are the locations by region. Also notice that as of the patch that fixed the bug, there is now a brand new region: Hushed River Valley.

For the record, I finally popped this when mapping an Ice Cave that had an icon, but nor did it not show up as a location trigger, not was marked in the list below. There were also 2 locations on the list in HRV that I did not map. Just map everything to be sure, including every time you transition

At the time I popped the achievement, I had found 211 locations and explored 89% of the world, so 100% is not necessary.

Happy hunting! toast
