What does this information mean? This instance gives you the choice of a Solo version also. There are no lockout timers for this zone. You may re-enter over and over as many times as you like, until the door vanishes and you must find it again. The outside of the door will be guarded by a single tainted scorpion (38).

The entrance moves around the Defiled Forest. Known locations are:

  • Southeast of Titan's Tower ( -136, -28, -245 ) /waypoint -136, -28, -245 Eq2map
  • South of Titan's Tower ( 17, 11, -296 ) /waypoint 17, 11, -296



Seems to be random whether you get a named, or none. In 20 runs I have seen all three of them, but never more than one per instance.
