Troll's End is a jumping puzzle in Trader's Forum located in Lion's Arch. It can be accessed by dropping from the above ledge (near the vista), into the water below.

Getting there[edit]

The ledge you must fall off onto the pillar
You must now fall off into the well, you may then begin the puzzle

Go to the wooden ledge where the vista next to the Trader's Forum waypoint is located. The ledge is attached to a u-turn of the wooden passageway, and the entrance is just down below the farthest edge of the u-turn. First, go to the u-turn and place yourself on the eastern edge of the "U".

If you place the camera correctly (as seen on the screenshot) you will notice a wooden pole attached to the pole that's supporting the wooden u-turn, that's where you have to fall onto. Place yourself on the edge of the "U" and go back very slowly. You will end up falling on the wooden pole, receiving some falling damage. Another way would be to first jump across to the little balcony east of you to and then jump on the wooden pole.

Now, if you adjust the camera you will notice the pole you are on is surrounded at its base by some wooden planks forming a well. These are actually the entrance. Walk back slowly again and you will fall into water.

  • There were once two possible shortcuts to the puzzle, both of which allowed one to skip the most difficult parts. You could jump to the end of the first boardwalk found from a nearby elevated plateau or use a leap skill to the left of the board. The second required you to jump from the slippery slope area to the ledge just past the jump after the last boardwalk. These shortcuts were removed/blocked during one of the builds leading up to dragon bash, though the change was not announced.
  • Note while dropping into the light well... Drop, don't jump into the well; slip off the edge that you approach from. And don't jump all the way to the bottom of the well - on your next drop, land on the balance beam.


  • The January 28th, 2013 update removed a third shortcut that allowed you to jump to the pillars that come just before the first boardwalk.
  • There used to be a skeleton of a troll at the end of the puzzle and some gathering nodes, but these have been removed since February 18, 2014 due to Scarlet's attack on the city.
