The Secret World Dungeon Locations and Gear Recommendations

Posted Mon, Jul 02, 2012 by Shayalyn

Descriptive Text

At launch, The Secret World contains 8 instanced dungeons--each of them filled with fun and challenging boss encounters and very few trash mobs to slog through. We often hear players asking how many dungeons are found in The Secret World, and where and when they can expect to reach them.

We've listed each dungeon along with where it's located and its recommended gear quality level. Funcom's Tor Andersen, who helped us put this info together, says, "The Gear range [for dungeons] is quite fluid, and there are no absolute requirements. A good team with good builds and good cooperation is just as important as the quality level (QL) of gear." Keep that in mind on your travels--the less cohesive and synergized your group is, the more likely you are to face trouble (and need a higher gear level) in a TSW dungeon.

Enjoy your experience in The Secret World's impressive dungeons! Do you have any tips for dungeon crawlers? Feel free to share them in the comments below.

The Secret World is contending for a spot in a list of great MMORPGs. I am very interested in seeing if it they can pull it off. With upcoming The Elder Scrolls Online that I have been checking out at [ADMIN: link removed] I think MMORPGs are headed in the right direction and each are offering something unique!
