How to get to the Vinetooth Prime

Vinetooth Prime is a powerful creature hiding in its den in Auric Basin. It appears immediately after activating the three Eastwatch pylons during the Ruins of Eastwatch event. It will leave and the Vinetooth Prime event will fail if it is not defeated within the ten-minute time limit or when the Auric Basin meta's challenges start.

  • Depleting its Defiance bar in time stuns it and applies Vulnerable on it for a considerable time. Because of that, it is imperative to do so, or it may not be possible to complete the event in time.
