Sanctum Bridge ArtifactsFollow

I've just spent the better part of an hour trying to get at the artifacts on the Sanctum bridge, and I can't figure out how to do it.

There's two artifacts at the very top of the bridge, one on either side of the pillars facing Silverwood. I can get close by walking up the curves on the side, but I haven't been able to get close enough to interact with them. Anybody know how to get at them?

Alright, so I saw the artifacts up there yesterday and decided to poke around to see if I could find a way up.

My solution was to run up the arch, obviously and before you get to the slope that knocks you off, turn around and jump onto the railing. I could only make this solution work from the north-easterly arch (closest to Sanctum on the north side) and I'm not sure if it's really easier there, or if I'm just better at jumping that direction. There was only one artifact up on the other side of the arch and I was a bit frustrated seeing as I had tried to get up over there for quite a while with no luck, but before I consigned myself to jump off and try on the other side I thought I should at least see what I could do up there.

So I jumped at the pillar, the furthest spot up I could get and just kept jumping (think trying to get up a slope, slightly different angles and such). I found little ledges, easily, and just started going along them. Low and behold you can basically push yourself against and slightly underneath the big arch and get to the other side. I had no issues going back and forth and looted my artifact.

Now hopefully I can do it again the next time.

EDIT: It's actually just an invisible bridge from one pillar to the other, not sure if it's intentional but no jumping is required once you get onto it. Yay.

Great info! I just tried to replicate this myself and it worked like a charm! I was able to make it up both sides using this method, I didn't try the invisible bridge method, but I'll give that a go next time. Its crazy how many hard-to-spot artifacts are in the world... I found one at the tip of a fallen tree in Gloamwood that's hard to get at as well. There's also artifacts underneath some of the bridges there, hidden behind moss.

Just to add, I found the invisible bridge thing you're talking about. Jumping doesn't seem to be required, I was able to walk between the two sides without jumping. Its kinda trippy.

Yeah, the bridge it helpful for me since I can only seem to get up on the northern side. Glad you managed to get up.

I found two artifacts i couldn't figure out how to reach as well, although they weren't in sanctum. They were in Silverwood, i dont remember the exact subzone, its the area that's sort of like a wooden / grassy fortress?(one of my favorite places so far as well) Thats the best i can do to describe it haha. But they were both were the last named mob you have to kill is located, on the top of the hut. I tried walking up the side, getting as close under as possible, but nothing worked. :/

One thing I've noticed in my effort to climb every scaffolding and weird thing in Telara is if you're mounted (only tried it on the turtle mount) your foot-base is extraordinarily wider than when you're not mounted, making it much easier to stand on very thin things.

Hmm.. I've actually found the opposite to be true, especially in very narrow spaces (like climbing scaffolding) I found that being on a mount made it MORE difficult to stay on. Although it might have had more to do with the mount making me move too fast in those situations.

Although I can't help but love mounts for helping me make difficult jumps, sometimes there's no other way

Check out going up the first angled beam of some scaffolding on and off the mount. I can "cling" at really bizarre angles on the mount but not off of it. Also, it seems to be easier to "catch" a thin beam on a jump mounted but that might just be foot speed jump timing.

I did notice while running the tightropes in Scarwood Reach that I seemed to have a larger "base" while on my mount, making it easier to run the whole thing without falling. I tried without a mount and had all sorts of problems. I know that's anecdotal, but it seems to support what you're saying.
