How to Get the Hero Point in Tarir, the Forgotten City in Guild Wars 2
Tarir, the Forgotten City is a golden city of the Exalted, an ancient race of humans who were chosen by the Forgotten to guard Glint's legacy and plan to protect the world from the Elder Dragons. The city is located in the Auric Basin, one of the regions of the Heart of Maguuma. It is a beautiful and mysterious place, full of secrets and challenges.
One of these challenges is to obtain the Hero Point that is located in the Inner Chamber of Tarir. Hero Points are character currencies that are used to unlock skills and traits in the Training tab of the Hero panel. They can be earned by leveling up and by completing Hero Challenges that are found throughout Tyria. In Tarir, there is only one Hero Challenge, which is to defeat a Champion Tarnished Sage, an Exalted who has betrayed his people and sided with the Mordrem.
To get to the Hero Point, you will need some special abilities and items that are exclusive to the Heart of Thorns expansion. These are:
Basic Gliding: This allows you to glide in the air using your wings. You can unlock this ability by completing the first story step of Heart of Thorns.
Adrenal Mushrooms: These are blue mushrooms that give you a boost of energy when you interact with them. They can be found in various locations in the Heart of Maguuma. You can unlock this ability by training the first tier of Itzel Lore mastery.
Bouncing Mushrooms: These are red mushrooms that launch you into the air when you jump on them. They can be found in various locations in the Heart of Maguuma. You can unlock this ability by training the first tier of Nuhoch Lore mastery.
Exalted Markings: These are golden symbols that grant you access to certain areas and devices in Tarir. They can be found on walls, floors, and pillars. You can unlock this ability by training the first tier of Exalted Lore mastery.
Nuhoch Wallows and/or Ley Line Gliding: These are two optional abilities that can make your journey easier. Nuhoch Wallows are green portals that transport you to different locations in the Heart of Maguuma. You can unlock this ability by training the second tier of Nuhoch Lore mastery. Ley Line Gliding allows you to glide along streams of magical energy called ley lines. You can unlock this ability by training the third tier of Gliding mastery.
Once you have these abilities and items, you can follow these steps to get to the Hero Point:
Travel to Tarir, the Forgotten City by using a waypoint or a Nuhoch Wallow. The closest waypoint is [&BMYHAAA=] Forgotten City Waypoint.
From the waypoint, head north towards [&BMkHAAA=] Northgate. Use your glider to cross the gap and enter the gate.
Inside the gate, you will see a large circular room with four entrances. Each entrance leads to a different part of Tarir: Eastgate, Westgate, Southgate, and Inner Chamber. The Inner Chamber is where the Hero Point is located.
To enter the Inner Chamber, you will need to activate four Exalted Markings that are located above each entrance. To do this, you will need to glide around the room and interact with each marking. You will also need to avoid or fight some enemies that patrol the room, such as Mordrem Guard Stalkers and Mordrem Guard Snipers.
After activating all four markings, a door will open above the Inner Chamber entrance. Glide up to it and enter it.
You will arrive at a large hall with a stained glass ceiling and a statue of Glint at the end. This is where you will find [&BNcHAAA=] Inner Chamber Vista and [&BLgIAAA=] Inner Chamber Hero Point.
To complete the Hero Challenge, you will need to defeat Champion Tarnished Sage, who spawns near the statue of Glint. He is a powerful enemy who uses ranged attacks and summons Mordrem allies. He also has a shield that makes him immune to damage ec8f644aee
