Dry Top

Dry Top is an explorable zone in the Maguuma Wastes. The arid wastes of Dry Top eventually give way to the Maguuma Jungle to the west. There has been a great deal of seismic upheaval in the region since it was last charted and as such Dry Top's climate is now harsh and prone to sandstorms. Travel within Dry Top is facilitated by using the three Aspects (Sun, Wind and Lightning).


Getting there[edit]

Use the portal in the southwest corner of the map in Brisban Wildlands. The portal will be located southeast of the Tangle Root Outpost point of interest.

To get to the west side of the map, head to the Town of Prosperity and use the underground passage way in the house on the west side of town to Treadrock Uplands and head north, then west to reach the other half of the map.

Unique vendors[edit]

Geodes are a form of currency accepted by Geode merchants in Dry Top. They are received as rewards for various events in Dry Top. The version of the inventory available from the vendor depends on which of 6 possible tiers of the Favor of the Zephyrites is active.

Notes[edit]

  • Dry Top is unique in that, whenever the zone-wide meta event changes, the entire zone experiences changes. During Sandstorm!, a sandstorm rages across the zone, decreasing visibility, revealing Buried Locked Chests, and replacing the enemy spawns with Dust Mites, Dust Mite Twisters, and Arid Devourers.
  • Dry Top introduced a new environmental hazard: Quicksand. Standing in quicksand applies both Quicksand and Blind to any character in its range. Both effects are refreshed each tick until the character escapes.
