Brightfire - Crypt of Decay TBM Leveling Guide
A little warning before you get excited about anything in Tier 2 TBM... In all TBM Tier 2 content you'll have a debuff placed on you until you complete the entire expansion's progression. This debuff will decrease your total health, mana and endurance by 25 - 30% depending on how long you stay in the zone.
With that out of the way, let's take a look at the camp! Brightfire is the only named which we'll be pulling from our camp location, which is the small blue circle on the map above. It might seem like Abroan Drian can be pulled too - and technically he could - except that you can't pull living enemies to the 'dead' side of Crypt of Decay and vice versa.
If that doesn't make sense look at the map above, see how it's red in one part? Well you can't pull anything from the green part into this red part. You also can't pull anything from this red part out of it. If you want to kill both nameds you'll have to move your group each time which is a pain the rear.
The blue circle I have marked for Brightfire above is a safe location - assuming you mash your entire crew into the corner you'll be able to safely go AFK here or login/out without having to worry about any pathing enemies killing you or your group.
As far as the trash enemies go - the most annoying ones are the little monkies, they'll mind control your tank and proceed to beat the ever living crap out of your group. I strongly recommend using miniburns on the monkies to dispatch them as quickly as possible.
In addition to the items listed above each named in TBM has a chance of dropping Raw Crypt-Hunter Gear which is used in making the group armor for the TBM expansion. The main difference with the TBM group armor though is it's useful to characters 75 - 105! If you'd like to read more about it I recommend you head over to my TBM Gearing Guide as it'll explain this in more detail.
Also, the named enemies of this expansion also have a chance of dropping Minor, Median, Lesser, Greater and Glowing Essences of Life. These are Spell Runes which will give you Rank 2 spells much like the Briny Essences of the TDS expansion.
- When in this zone you'll suffer from a debuff that decreases your total HP/MP and Endurance by 25 - 30%. You will need to complete TBM expansion's progression in order to remove this debuff.
- In order to reach Crypt of Decay you'll need to travel to the northern most portion of Sul Vius: Demiplane of Decay. You'll find a crypt to click on that'll take you to this zone.
- All of the Tier 2 TBM named enemies have a small chance of dropping an Enameled Box, a 40 slot 100% Weight Reduction container.
