  • This Hero challenge was changed from Defeat the Ancient Sharks in the January 28, 2013 game update. Previously, this event frequently became bugged by drawing the shark outside of the cave, preventing completion of the Hero challenge.
    • The Hero challenge icon also used to be in the exact location of the entrance to the underwater cave.


  • Pistrix is a Latin word meaning "sea-monster".
