<p>Apparently according to the latest Zam Preview of the update; starting some time around Fanfaire we will have a book placed on random vendors for like a week. Apparently these books we will get every so often leading to expansion but only available for a short time. So we all will need to coordinate a search to find what vendors when this goes in.</p>

<p>random merchants selling new expansion books.... Interesting. EVERYONE NEEDS TO PITCH IN AS SOON AS THEY SEE ANYTHING!</p>

<p>no, not player made books. Those are going to stay forever. We're talking about new lore books dedicated to the next expansion.</p><p>Just like the Seerress book you got from the Temple of Life hidden lore quest before TSO opened. Stuff pertaining to the next expansion.</p>

<p>Well guys... as much as i dont wish to shamelessly plug Befallen.lore.. as the WW channel aside from when Vhalen's been popping in it recently. I suggest we use it as the "hub" to let each other know where these new books are purchased at once we find them in-game</p>

<p>I built up enough faction with the Order of Rime to check thier faction merchants. They don't have any books. I haven't checked Lavastorm or Moors yet. Sage Indus in South Qeynos has nothing new.</p><p>Edit: Nothing around the landing zone in Moors or in Lavastorm.</p><p>Checked the Shady Swashbuckler in Nektulos and he has nothing. Nothing in the Village of Shin either.</p>

<p>I have not tried...is it possible for players to copy books authored by other players?</p><p>If so we might be able to make unlimited copies of the official lore books. It would be nice to have them given out in limited time events, but still obtainable after that if you meet someone who can make you a copy.</p>
