Tiger Den Locations
Tangled Depths: SCAR Lane
From SCAR Camp Waypoint, run all the way NE until you see a bunch of mushrom pads you can jump on.
Once you reach the top, keep running along the ledge and then glide down to a lower ledge. You will find another set of mushroom pads to climb. Go up that and then glide/jump across to the top of the waterfall with the diving goggles.
The tiger den is right near the wall hidden near a tree root.
Caledon Forest: Dreamdark Enclave
Basically at end of the two jumping puzzles that start at Morgan’s Spiral. The Tiger’s Den is after the second jumping puzzle (Dark Reverie). At end of the jumping puzzle you just jump down and you will find the Tiger’s Den.
Southsun Cove: Southsun Strait
For this you have to do the Skipping Stones jumping puzzle which can be a PITA or get a mesmer to port you. The den is at end of the jumping puzzle island inside a semi hidden alcove.
Sparkfly Fen: Orvanic Shore
Enter the cave with the skill point challenge and then follow the path. Once you exit the cave follow the stone steps near the waterfall and enter a second cave.
Once you exit the second cave drop down and you will find the den.
Lornar’s Pass: Demon’s Maw
Go through the passage filed with Ettins and on the rocks to your left after you exit the passage will be the Den.
Diessa Plateau: The Breached Wall
This is at the end of the Crimson Plateau jumping puzzle that starts at the Redreave Mill Waypoint in Diessa Plateau. The chest is at the end of the jumping puzzle on a rock near the chest.
Fields of Ruin: Tanglerot Hills

After the traps take a left instead of continuing with the jumping puzzle.
Verdant Brink: Skyclaw Peaks
Start from Mellaggan’s Valor waypoint. There is an updraft near and below waypoint that isn’t really visible. To get around this, you want to glide down to the marked location and then turn around toward the waypoint. This will make the updraft appear. You can want ride the updraft all the way to the top.
Once you reach the top of the updraft, you want to just keep gliding towards Skyclaw Peaks where you can see some big vines. Run past the vines and take a right. You will find the Den hidden behind a broken airship wing.
Tangled Depths: Rata Novus Lane
From Teku Nuhoch, head towards the Beetle Race adventure and complete it all the way to the end. At the end is a skill point guarded by a Mushroom King/Queen. You can ignore them and run into a corner at the gate behind them and this will transform you out of beetle form and allow you to jump past the gate. Once you get past the gate, there is a path that will take you directly to the den.
Dragon’s Stand: Broken Altar
Super easy, run west along the way from the entry Waypoint.
