Graven Deep Guide including all Graven Deep Sets, Boss Mechanics, and group role recommendations for Tank, DPS, and Healer.
Tamriel’s sailors whisper warnings about Graven Deep, a strange region of the Abecean Sea where any ship that enters vanishes without a trace. Join former pirate Dhulef as he hunts for information on the legendary Druid King’s voyage to the Systres and seeks to uncover an ancient secret buried far beneath the waves.
All who sail the Abecean Sea know of the perils of Graven Deep, a mysterious region infamous for the disappearance of many a vessel. Unfortunately for you, your ship is this treacherous region’s latest victim, and you and your party have washed up on a mysterious uncharted island at the center of it all. Thankfully, you are not alone, as the Mages Guild explorer Dhulef has also survived the shipwreck and has a mission for you.
Sail to (or shipwreck upon) an uncharted island, battle your way through an ancient Dwarven complex, and solve the mystery of Graven Deep—what you discover beneath the waves may have consequences for the Legacy of the Bretons adventure to come. Is your team ready to help Dhulef delve into this underwater facility?
