The Nuhoch are one of the two new hylek tribes found in the Heart of Maguuma. Players can learn their language and how to travel through their wallows through the mastery system. They are a relatively recent addition to the jungle, but have made allies with the local Itzel tribe and learned how to craft alchemical concoctions to combat the local chak.
The Nuhoch worship a nature goddess named Ameyalli, but recently the imperialistic Zintl tribe have been attempting to convert them to the worship of the sun god of the same name with limited success. The Nuhoch in Tangled Depths are led by a female chieftain called Kaana Pahua.
