Quest lists direct from our database:

At various places in this zone you may encounter a Mystical Voyager who will offer to break the monotony, to make your life more fun. If you agree he teleports you to another part of Shimmersand (we are not sure if it is always the same place or not), someplace way off the beaten track. This can lead to your finding areas you did not even realize existed, or it can lead to a long run home or even ignominious death.

We met him in a cave at the west end of Scaldwater Fields and he sent us to Hullbreach Shoals at the mouth of Shimmerscale's cave. As it so happens, another Mystical Voyager was there, too, and sent us to a cave at the border of Fortune's Shore and Khaliti Row, where there was another Mystical Voyager! In fact, we are going to go out on a limb and say that this guy, or this group of guys, is a hidden transport feature tying the entire zone together if only you know his locations and the pattern of travel.

Worn Treasure Maps

Waves of Madness
World Event

Rift: Patch 1.3
These drop from any of the planar invaders involved in the Waves of Madness event in Shimmersand. There are four maps: Blue, Green, Brown and Chestnut. The quests are repeatable as many times as you find maps to start them, but after the first time you will only find 25 Planarite in each cache.

Rare Monsters

There are eight Rare Elite monsters in this zone. When you kill one, all players in the party can loot an item from it that will offer a quest. All of them send you to Tzevi Durdana, Kaseem's Aide on the first floor of The City Center in Fortune's Shore.
