Territory Archosaur

The capital of Perfect World, Archosaur is the easternmost city, located South-east of Etherblade and North-east of Wellspring Village. This is the most popular and the most populated city in Perfect World. It is divided into four sections, one for each of the cardinal points of the compass, each with their own Teleportation NPC and Bank. East Archosaur has important quest NPCs, such as the Archosaur Elder and Mrs. Zoologist; the harbor on that side takes up space that might otherwise hold the greater number of services, such as Auctioneers, Crafting NPCs and Gem Crafters, that the other areas have; for a few years, East Archosaur did not even have a Banker.

A character using Town Portal or Teleport Incense in "The Mines" and other areas will arrive in West Archosaur.

Archosaur, also known as the Ancient Dragon City, was built in honor of all races by Archosaur the Great. It was closed for a thousand years but was then opened up to the public. Now heroes, merchants and killers alike come to this city.



Archosaur is the midpoint of many a journey. With the numerous Catshops in West Archosaur, it may be the least preferable of the options, if there is are no tasks to be performed in Archosaur itself. All of the rest usually have a cluster of catshops, as well, but the East Teleport Master is about tied with the North for least lag, if only because of the East's harbor and fewer NPCs for players to visit. Furthermore, since the end point for teleportation to the North is so far from the Teleport Master itself, the clear winner for Archosaur as a stage in the journey, rather than a destination itself, is the East teleport.


Getting there

To get to Archosaur, you can either: teleport from any city, head across the bridge east of Wellspring, swim east along the Phoenix River, walk north from Valley of the Hidden Orchid or travel northwest of Sanctuary.

  • Transmutation Master Xolo gives trades for a random assortment of widely useful items, eg HP food, for others of narrower utility, eg Attendance Sheets and Mystical Pills.

Trade and Commerce

You will find crafters; blacksmith, merchant, tailor, apothecary, seamstress, in various districts of the city; West District, South District, North District. The West District is always filled with players' cat shops, so it is the best place to go shopping for items you can't get from NPC shops. There are also class trainers in several locations, elders, roaming dukes, multiple banks, mailboxes, and auction houses, the Bounty Hunter quest giver, Forges for Legendary Weapons and Military Rank NPCs, as well as various Teleportation Mistresses and portal stones that send you directly into dungeons. There are also Demon tract and Celestial tract NPCs in Archosaur. It is truly a bustling place.
