Tangled Depths Hero Points

The Tangled Depths Hero Points are one of the hardest points to get. This is due to the complexity of the map, and the difficulty that the Hero Challenges pose on you, especially if you are trying to run them solo.

As a matter of fact, some of the Tangled Depths Hero Challenges are not doable solo, so I would suggest getting a friend or asking the map chat for some assistance.

Due to the complexity of this map, I recommend watching the video.

Further in the guide, we will be going over all the Hero Points in Tangled Depths step by step, covering the waypoints and routes to take and instructions on how to complete them.

GW2 Tangled Depths Hero Points

There are 11 Hero Points in Tangled Depths. Getting a friend to help complete those challenges isn’t such a bad idea. This is because most of the Hero Challenges in this map will have Champions to fight, and they are pretty tough, and doing it solo is pretty hard, even for the veteran player.

Before we begin, make sure you have a Glider and the Itzel Poison Lore HoT mastery.

1. Troll Runestone

  • Location: Tangled Descent (Caverns Level)
  • Difficulty: Hard
  • Waypoint: Order of Whispers Camp Waypoint [&BA4IAAA=]
  • Instructions: From the camp, head straight until you reach a small cave that takes you down to the caverns.
    • Keep going down and you will come across two slopes, for the first one deploy your glider and keep going straight.
    • When you reach the second one, drop using your glider then rotate 180 degrees and keep going straight the other way.
    • By the end of the cave, you will find a troll runestone which you have to interact with to summon the Champion Wayward Troll.
    • Defeat him to complete this hero challenge.
