Tangled Depths is a zone in the Heart of Maguuma and features the roots of the jungle, one of the 3 main biomes that make up the zones in the Heart of Maguuma. The main enemies encountered here are the Chak, insect creatures with an affinity for ley-line energy. It is also home to the Nuhoch hylek tribe, and the location of the lost asuran city of Rata Novus.

The area contains many Nuhoch Wallows that allow fast travel like Skritt Holes, but they require the Nuhoch Wallows mastery.

This zone also contains deep, water filled tunnels spread around under the map called The Depths. These passageways can be accessed at various points throughout the map by means of large sinkholes. Certain areas of The Depths are shrouded in darkness, containing unavoidable fish that will quickly kill travellers unless they have interacted with an Exalted Beacon.

Getting there[edit]

From Auric Basin: the portal is east of the

Chak Hollow Waypoint, follow the road southeast.

Navigation and orientation[edit]

Tangled Depths is renowned in-game as being awkward to navigate. Along the southern edge of the map in the center is the Ley-Line Confluence Waypoint - visible on this map - from this point four tunnels radiate outwards towards the four camps, clockwise from bottom left; Ogre, Nuhoch, Rata Novus and SCAR. If you can get to the Ley-Line Confluence it is then trivial to reach each of the four camps.

The first time you enter the map you find yourself at the Order of Whispers Camp, high up to the west. Travel southeast until you reach a deep canyon, jump into it and glide northeast until you see a waterfall, at which point follow the water further down to the lowest level where the tunnels are. Having followed these directions, you will find yourself at the northwest end of the Nuhoch Lane - head southeast to reach the Ley-Line Confluence.

Notes[edit]

  • Ley-Line Confluence is the central hub of this zone and offers easy navigation through each of the lanes to the other outposts in the zone, and to the entrance to Dragon's Stand in the southwest. Thus, when exploring this zone, it is advisable to first unlock Ley Line Confluence Waypoint. The easiest way to get there from the Order of Whispers Camp Waypoint is to head east and drop down to the Order of Whispers Camp, and from there drop down into the water into Nuhoch Lane. Then, simply head southeast and you should reach Ley Line Confluence Waypoint.
  • Having level 2 Nuhoch mastery which allows you to use Nuhoch Wallows makes traversing this zone significantly easier.
