Background[edit | edit source]

The Outer Grotto serves as the main source of water for all the denizens of Splitpaw Lair. However, recently an ancient and brutish gnoll clan, the Underpaw, have mysteriously awoken from deep below Splitpaw Lair. They have taken over all of the Grotto and threaten the Splitpaw with expulsion, slavery and death. The Underpaw have no allies and desire the help of no one save members of their own clan. It's best to complete your business in this zone and get out as soon as possible.

Geography[edit | edit source]

Entrance: ( 43, -78, -228 ) /waypoint 43, -78, -228
Exit: ( 98, 23, 85 ) /waypoint 98, 23, 85

The Outer Grotto can be split into two sections: above water and below. Below the water has three ring-events, each event taking place in one of the underwater caves. Yet for the most part, the water should be avoided if possible, as many monsters lurking in the deep can root you for 20+ seconds. Above water is an array of islands and pillars infested with Underpaw and thier Zygomyd slaves. These islands and pillars must be navigated correctly in order to reach the terraporter instance entrances:

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • There are only two shiny-spawn points in this zone and they respawn very quickly (>5 minutes):
    • ( -21, 25, -9 ) /waypoint -21, 25, -9
    • ( 51, 24, -1 ) /waypoint 51, 24, -1
