Location Hint Notes Closest waypoint Zone Area Map
SCAR Lane The tiger den is hidden in the shadow between two green vine roots east from the vista at the top of Cascade Descent.

To reach the vista, walk east from the waypoint to the staging area of the scrap metal event. From there, climb the terrain until you reach a stairway of mushrooms. Make your way up until you reach a ledge where a flock of Tropical Birds rests. Turn to the west and glide down to the ledge below. Continue your way to another set of climbable mushrooms and ascend these. Once you are on the top, you will see the waterfall where the vista and the diving goggles are located. Glide to this position.

Alternatively, complete the Drone Race adventure (do not reset or you'll return to the start), and then glide off the ledge near the finish line following the east wall to to a ledge, then the waterfall.

From the vista, the den is to the east and a bit to the south, between two large vine roots sticking from the rocky wall where the mordrem wall forms a corner with the rocky wall.

Dreamdark Enclave After completing both the Morgan's Leap and Dark Reverie jumping puzzles, facing north while standing near the Magnificent Chest, drop down to the ledge below and you will see the tiger's den.

Alternatively, using a skyscale or springer, the den can be reached from the north without going through the jumping puzzles, by getting onto a branch just outside of the Mounts Disabled zone and then walking to the ledge.

Southsun Strait Complete the Skipping Stones jumping puzzle. At the end of the puzzle, on northern part of the island, you will find the den in a corner near the rocks, which is marked by a palm tree growing close by.

Alternate route: From the very northern tip of the island that has the Champion Reef Rider, you are able to use your Springer Mount to jump onto the cliff. Once there, run right (Southwest) along the edge until you come to the first palm tree. You should be able to see the den to the left (South) of the tree in a small cave.

Orvanic Shore From the waypoint, make your way to the Veteran Hylek Chief hero point challenge in the Uzanarin Depths and continue down the path that leads from there. Once you exit the first cave, head to the waterfall area and pass over the stone way to the next cave. Once you reach the end of the second cave, instead dropping to the ledge where the vista is, drop north to a small ledge. The den is on that ledge, directly to the west of the Tower of Modius point of interest in the minimap, in a small corner formed by the rock walls. Alternatively you can use the springer due west of the Tower of Modius and jump directly up to the ledge where the den is. Ocean's Gullet Waypoint

Demon's Maw Walk to the Twoheaded Meadows point of interest. Turn to the ettin pen on the right and climb up the rock formation behind it. The den is just behind another rock. Demon's Maw Waypoint

Loreclaw Expanse From the waypoint, head to the beginning of the jumping puzzle. Make your way through the first set of spike traps and move onto the plank leading north. Follow it to reach an outside platform. The tiger den is here.

It can also be reached by heading east from the waypoint and using your Springer to jump up the cliff.

Skyclaw Peaks With Advanced Gliding, it can be reached from the Wreck of the Mellaggan's Valor. Head to the updraft northeast of it. Once up in the air, backtrack to the large airship wreckage next to the waypoint and use the updraft of the airship engine to gain altitude. Turn northeast again and glide straight to the skyclaw peaks.

Without Advanced Gliding, it is possible to reach it by jumping off the Last Leap platform in the Canopy over Jaka Itzel, which can be reached without advanced gliding by using a helicopter during the night events. A few short glides, leaving some gliding endurance to stop the fall, will be enough to reach the ledge under Glory's Fall.

Once on the ledge under Glory's Fall, the den will be in a small cave behind a broken pact ship wing.

Rata Novus Lane Head to the Beetle Feast adventure. Once there, make your way to the Mushroom Spore Cloud. Avoid getting killed by the royal mushroom couple and slip through the bone wall on the left side of it. Continue your way down the passage until you reach the den. Incidentally, if you continue onwards from the den, you might as well claim the mastery insight if you still need it.

Alternatively, it is possible to skip the Beetle Feast adventure altogether and simply glide to the canyon with the mastery point from the top of Teku Nuhoch. Players with advanced gliding technique can glide the entire way in one flight.

Broken Altar You will find the den off the northern road leading to the Broken Altar cave filled with poison haze.

To get there, either follow the north wall from Pact Base Camp, or walk up the northeast slope from the the Northern Forward Camp.

There will be two large plants by the rock wall there. The den is behind the larger plant with palm tree leaves.
