Tie into the common vent or make one if you don't have any plumbing there yet.
Do not vent into a waste stack- vent stacks only
Where I get confused is that I know you can wet vent fixtures that are on the same floor but lets say I added a shower in the basement wouldn't I have to extend the vent pipe up and over the first floor fixtures and tie into the stack to avoid the wet venting?

I read the article on circuit vents but am still confused. What exactly is that? Does that mean the drains for the fixtures run horizontally and eventually drain into the vertical main waste stack? And a separate vent stack is used for these fixtures?
