Who built this mysterious tower and what was its purpose?

Check out more videos on my channel to see more Skyscale climbing and acrobatic feats.

    It was built by the Forgotten, like the rest of Tarir. As for the purpose, if it had one we would know by now. XD Maybe it was just for aesthetic purpose, although it was impossible to reach it (or even just notice it) when HoT came out. Maybe the devs planned to do another Jumping Puzzle but then scrapped the idea. Who knows. Cool video though. In all these years, i never knew about this.

    Btw, with the Skyscale you can also reach the very top of the Egg chamber and exit outside the hole where the light comes from. Although you can't go anywhere from there since it's still considered an instance of sorts and there are invisible walls blocking you from gliding to other areas of the map. There is also a lack of texture that indicates how obviously the devs never expected someone to go there (and indeed you couldn't before).

    I checked it out, if you can get past the walls you have access to the rest of the map. You have to get up pretty high though.

    I see. Good to know.

    Have they added some invisible walls since you made this video? I don't seem to be able to get past the 1:49 mark following your path

    NVM this time the way was open - maybe there are only walls during the siege of Tarir?

    I know for sure walls are activated during the end meta, so that might of been what you ran into. You can of course work your way from the outside of the city on top of the barriers and then climb.
