Verdant Brink Insight: Holdfast Hollow is a Maguuma Mastery Insight that can be found slightly to the north and above the main Pact Encampment in Verdant Brink.


Heart of Maguuma

Getting there[edit]

At night[edit]

Reaching this insight is much easier at night. Take the chopper up from Waypoint (map icon).png Pact Encampment Waypoint. From the platform glide north, walk across the Point of interest (map icon).png Matriarch's Perch and glide to the north into the first updraft on the other side of the wreckage. Turn east and glide towards the second updraft (recover if necessary by landing on nearby wreckage), which will take you to an altitude above the mastery point. Turn back towards the mastery point and land on the airship wreckage. Walk the rest of the way down the ship.

During the day[edit]

Alternatively by day this insight can be reached by going west from Waypoint (map icon).png Shrouded Ruins Waypoint. Head up the stairs and use the bouncing mushroom. From there climb the vine until you reach a platform with another bouncing mushroom. Head north through the airship where another bouncing mushroom awaits. The final part towards the mastery insight can be acquired by using the updrafts. The updraft on the back of the crashed airship will provide enough height to be able to glide to the mastery insight.
