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. (This area may be cut off until the Jungle Entanglement meta event is completed.)

To get to the west side of the map, head to the Town of Prosperity and use the underground passageway 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 Zephyrite 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.

Map completion[edit]

Completing Dry Top grants 100  Geode.png Geodes, as well as give the regular map completion rewards.
