Quote from Tiro of Meletis »I just feel like we arrived at Orazca's doorstep in a blink. Seems a bit silly for a city fatally sought after for centuries. Compass or not.
I think this is a matter of pacing. It's been weeks, possibly even months since Jace joined up with Vraska, but most of that has happened off-camera (so to speak) so it really has seemed way too fast. Adding to it is that it's been what? A day or two since the shipwreck? How far could they possibly have traveled inland? Looking at the map I'm having a hard time figuring out where the ship wreck could have happened that's close enough to just WALK to Orazca in a day. Admittedly there's no legend or scale to the map, but it can't be THAT small or the idea of not being able to find Orazca looses plausibility, magic or no magic.
