Don't forget to hop shards when you find a point for an objective but nothing's there on your server. And don't forget that half of these objectives can spawn in a circle around the points given (usually similar size to the circle on the map around the NPC questgiver).

By far the easiest place I found to get the Mystic Skull in Seratos was the one described above as: "You can also try going to (11,656, 6066) and kill the Stormsparks to loot a Static Charge, this enables the purple jump/launch pad." It launches you right onto the skull almost.

It would've been a little more helpful on the Seratos one if it'd been mentioned that there's a ramp you need to go up to another level to find the egg sack at that loc, so adding the middle loc number (1129) to your location is essential to finding the sac. :-)

Seratos challenge phase 2 The coordinates are a bit off. I found it at 12030, 4315 and it's on the top level. You need to wait for the walls to change to open a ramp going up to the second level.
