While there is no story related reasons for visiting the Bridge District there are many interesting events and locations here.
The side quests here range from the acquisition of crafting items (the Illithium Ore required to improve the Mace of Disruption) to a high powered encounter that will test even the most seasoned party.
The first time you arrive in the Bridge District, Lieutenant Aegisfield will warn you about the murders that are happening here, which then starts a sub-quest. You will have to find and kill the people behind it.
