Tempest Temple - TDS Leveling Guide
Tempest Temple is the second Tier 1 TDS zone. This zone requires no flagging to enter and you can reach it by taking the portal device in Katta Castrum: Deluge. You'll find some of the weakest enemies in the entire TDS expansion throughout the southern portion of this zone.
Before I start talking about each location let me say that this zone drops non prestige gear. That means it will always be more valuable than the prestige stuff dropped in later zones because Free to Play players can only use non prestige gear. The zonewide rare that drops from nameds in this TDS zone is Violet Conch of the Tempest.
In the southern portion of the zone inside the large green circle I have on my map you'll find a bunch of relatively weak crabs lining the shore. These will be the best things for you to hunt if you're solo and unable to handle one of the regular enemies in the zone. If you kill the regrua enemies in the area you'll have a chance of spawning Strangacul.
The next location is my favorite in the whole zone - in the southwestern part of the map where you see my blue circle is where you'll want to make camp. From this location you'll be able to pull a ton of goblins which are spaced out in single pulls throughout the waters.
This is probably the best camp Tier 1 TDS can offer you in terms of field killing. If you clear enough goblins to reach the named place holders in the back of this area you'll also have a chance of spawning Scalithid the Deepwalker. You'll need a pretty good group to handle the whole camp + place holders/named!
Along with all of the items mentioned for each of these named enemies; they also have a chance of dropping.. Minor, Median, Lesser, Greater, Glowing Briny Essences. These items are the Rank 2 Spell Runes of The Darkened Sea expansion pack. Ontop of these items the nameds you find will also drop Castaway Armor.
