Hidden Garden is a jumping puzzle in Dierdre's Steps, east of the Infinite Coil Reactor in Mount Maelstrom.

Getting there[edit]

There is a unique method for reaching the area. Players must find 1 of 4 events in Mount Maelstrom and slay the elemental keeper (soloable). Once defeated, a Mysterious Portal to 1 of 4 different locations in Dierdre's Steps will open and you may go to the Hidden Garden area. The portal remains open for about a minute.

  • Event boss (tango icon).png Defeat the Keeper of Winds (68): The Stychs, southeast of Waypoint (map icon).png Irwin Isle Waypoint. → takes you to a portal on the West side of Dierdre's Steps

The guardians seem to have a 15 minute reset clock.

Alternative Way In[edit]

Extra Life 2022 added the Someone in Need collection. In part 6 of the collection, a mesmer portal marked marked by Collection (map icon).png appears in Mount Maelstrom north of Waypoint (map icon).png Old Sledge Site Waypoint that takes you to the Hidden Garden jumping puzzle. This grants you an easy permanent portal to the Hidden Garden as long as you don't advance the collection any further.

  • Bring a friend or place a Jade Bot Personal Waypoint. There are no waypoints in Dierdre's Steps, so if you're there alone and you die you will either have to use a waypoint outside of the area to revive and then find a new event to get back to the area, or use a Revive Orb.
  • Gliding is enabled in this jumping puzzle, with Mounts being enabled everywhere except when climbing the tree, greatly reducing the risk of death from falling as well as simplifying several jumps throughout the puzzle or just negating them entirely.
    • You can glide from the Cluster of Light to the Cluster of Waves, and from the Cluster of Winds to the platform holding the Sylvan Chest if you have Advanced Gliding.
    • If you use your flying mount and fly from the Cluster of Winds towards the big tree and the Cluster of Light (to get the Cantle of Light), then use the Bond of Faith skill as you near the tree and switch to gliding mid-air, you can reach the top of the tree and the Cantle of Sun, then glide down to the Sylvan Chest.
