    Location and Navigation of Vloxen Excavations Dungeon

    Finding your way to the location of and then navigating through any dungeon in Guild Wars can be a challenge in itself without Vloxen Excavations Map Guild Wars mentioning the bosses, your henchmen not listening, and other problems that can arise. Dungeons are spread out all over Eye of the North in hidden locations that you must discover yourself. There will not be a marker on your map to the location of any dungeon unless you have taken your character to the spot and uncovered it. The entrance to Vloxen Excavations dungeon is located in Umbral Grotto. However, there is also another entrance in Vlox’s falls that allows you to skip a large portion of the first level.

    Follow the inside dungeon map carefully to avoid unnecessary fights and going down the wrong tunnels. Here is a map of the 3 levels inside the Vloxen Excavations dungeon.
