You have to unlock the bonus series to get to bugtown. I am not sure if it is a quest or level that unlocks it, but it normally hops up as a travel point automatically when I am about 3/4's of the way done with normal questing. It will be obvious when hitting up a travel point because its way off the beaten path. Once you get there, make sure you get the special key from the vendor across the river.

On Imp side - I just gained access to Bugtown from simply unlocking the Vanguard Outpost Skyhopper in the Markaran Plains on the Western side of Balmorra. I had ONLY completed story quests and the ([Heroic 4] Assembly Line). I believe that no quest progress is required to make it to bug town.

I confirm it.
The mind is quicker than the eye.

At this point, are we just deliberately necroing this thread to keep up a forum tradition?

With this thread, the problem is not that it is "out of date". Nothing about how to get there has ever changed over the years.

The problem is that there are too many wrong answers.

This completely wrong.

You do not have to be on bonus series for anything to unlock.

The speeder route will unlock whenever you find the one other travel point where the speeder from Bugtown connects to. What missions you're on or have done have absolutely nothing to do with it.
The bonus series missions will lead you there eventually, if you follow where the missions take you to, but they are not required to unlock anything.
One can travel there at any time they want regardless of what missions they have or have not done.
All is needed is to explore the west part of the map until one finds the travel point that connects the other speeders to bug town.

It may be an old thread, but every time I roll a new toon and hit Balmorra there is at least one person still asking this question.
