Help, I can't finish exploring Balmorra!

Hi all.

I hate to post such a trivial matter here, but I cannot, for the life of me, figure this out for myself (and Google isn't helping).

I'm trying to complete the exploration achievement on Balmorra, but, try as I might, there's a part of the Sundari Flatlands that I can't find (it's showing in the log as" 3/4 Sundari Flatlands"). I've even found that hidden (and empty) area below-right of where my marker is (wandering around in there did nothing but get me stuck in a hollow mountain).

I also found the datacron behind the Balmorra Arms Factory; it's a closed map back there, so coming at this unexplored area from that direction is a no-go.

Below is an image of the Flatlands as it appears in my map view, highlighting what I think is the only possible place I have left to explore, and showing why I can't get to it (grey line is mountains and red line is a red energy wall).

Any help on this would be appreciated, as I'm kinda OCD about this exploration.

Cheers.

Complete Balmorra Bonus Series 1 and 2, or a H4.

Depends if you are PUB or IMP.

My last location I discovered on Balmorra was the WB place. Maybe you missed that one? If I remember correctly it was west side of the map. Try looking for the brighter octagons (I think they are octagons).

It's rather small so you might have missed it, but it's a beach and he is walking in the see. Try this.

Thanks for the quick replies!

discbox: I'll run the Bonus Series'. Hopefully they'll give me a reason to go into that area.

Schanez: Thanks, but I already have Grandfather's Walk (or whatever that WB area is called). The area I'm missing is definitely in the Sundari Flatlands (my achievement log is adamant on this!).

You're probably missing the Dread Seed area, which is level 53 or above.. it's a part of "after Makeb" quest line.

Przemo_No: Thanks but nope. Got that area too. I'm currently doing the Seeker Droid chain.
Damned good suggestion though. Bravo (no sarcasm)!

Well, Indeed, it's not the one, sorry. But as far as I remember there is some H4 in that area, and definitely accessible by walk-in, however I guess you need to obtain that quest (or a chain) - I remember I was there, by my Shadow (quest) and Assassin (exploration)

Provided you're imperial, if I remember correctly, (haven't run an imperial toon through Balmorra in a while) that missing area is blocked off by an instanced barrier, and you need to do the bonus quest to get it.

If you're republic, that area is accessable by a path that is just on the north side of the crashed ship in the Flatlands area.

According to your linked picture, the area you have that's unexplored is cut off by an instance barrier. You can get access to it by accepting the quest [HEROIC 4] Resistance Sympathizers which can be accepted at the bounty board at the Imperial base in the Sundari Flatlands.
