I need access and I need it now, well about two months ago.
Our very own EverQuest 2 community team have updated the Access Quests Guide. It's only a rumour that they wrote this:
"Access Quest Compendium Access quests allow you toenter certain "keyed" areas of Norrath. Some are more or less necessary to progress in level (Enchanted Lands and Zek access, for two), others are necessary to complete heritage quests, while still others are more or less avoidable unless your friends are begging you to join them."
