Getting there[edit]

Intended route

The intended design route requires the third tier of the Jackal mastery to use the Sand Portals, and also the Griffon or Skyscale to reach the platform.

Starting from Waypoint (map icon).png Sand Jackal Run Waypoint, head northeast and use the Jackal to enter the first Sand Portal. Continue north and interact with a second Sand Portal to be teleported onto a ledge just south of the center of the Mouth of Torment. From here you can see the mastery insight on another floating ledge in the distance. Switch to using a Griffon or Skyscale. Simply fly over to the mastery insight.

Other methods
  • If you have the Bond of Faith mastery, you can easily get there after the second jackal Sand Portal by using the Springer to jump, then gliding forwards.
  • With Springer mount tier 3, jump to the top of the spire at the exit of the second jackal Sand Portal. Dismount, and use the height advantage to either glide to the platform or use a Jackal's blink.
  • Sand Portals can be avoided altogether via the usage of a Springer (also with the third mastery tier unlocked). Jump out of the Forged fortifications below, to arrive at the exit of the second Sand Portal described above. The Springer can then be used to jump onto the stalagmite behind the Sand Portal, using the lower rocks to get on top of it. With leaning, a glider can then be used to glide over to the mastery insight.
  • If you have the Griffon or a Skyscale, regardless of how many masteries for it, you can simply fly north off of the top floor of the Djinn Enclave.
  • If you have the Rift Repair mastery, you can repair the rift near the Vista and then follow the balls of magic to complete the rift. By then you will be above the mastery point and able to fly down to it on your Skyscale.
