The Tam-Tara Deepcroft is a dungeon in Final Fantasy XIV. A Gelmorran necropolis for the ruling houses and nobles of that lost civilization, it has been overrun by the Lambs of Dalamud.

A hard mode of Tam-Tara was released in patch 2.3, Defenders of Eorzea.

Story[edit | edit source]

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Tam-Tara Deepcroft in the opening cutscene.

Since its establishment during Gelmorran times, this subterranean crypt has been used for generations as a final resting place for the remains of rulers and nobles. Since the Calamity, however, the tunnels have become overrun with the Lambs of Dalamud─a deadly cult who worships the now-fallen satellite as their savior. It is in the Deepcroft that these twisted souls silently plot revenge against those who fought to prevent the advent of Dalamud, summoning any dark presence who will aid them to this end...no matter what the cost.

Duty description

The Tam-Tara Deepcroft is a necropolis within where prominent figures in the Gelmorran civilization are buried. While the First Ring has become a haven for beasts, the lower Second Ring serves to hold the noble houses of Ak-Inik and Ak-Mena under the protection of their undead guardians. The Tam-Tara Deepcroft is also the resting place of King Galvanth the Dominator.

During the Seventh Umbral Era, the Deepcroft was overrun by the Lambs of Dalamud, an apocalyptic cult that worships the fallen moon, unaware of Dalamud's true purpose. Seeking revenge on those it holds responsible for the moon's destruction, the cult routinely bargains with any voidsent that will listen in exchange for power. To this end, they summoned a powerful mindflayer, using the body of King Galvanth as a host. However, the ritual is disrupted by adventurers, and the corrupted Galvanth deposed.

Spoilers end here.
