Items dropped[edit]


  • Strategy: After killing the two Chaos Wurms, head to the left side and kill the popups (there is no need to go to the right side (unless farming for ecto)). From the left side stairway, target the nearest Terrorweb Dryder and pull with a bow. That will pull the Darknesses as well, but if you back up enough the Darknesses will return, and the Dryders will still follow you. Do not retreat too far or the Dryders will break aggro and return.
    • This pull usually only works once, once the Dryders return they cannot be pulled away again. Kill the Dryders and then the Darknesses will be alone. This is a good strategy for players that solo farm the Tomb of the Primeval Kings.
