Route from Teku Nuhoch Waypoint using Nuhoch Wallows

The center of the Chak Hatchery is full of ley-energy that fosters the newborn Chak. To enter, use the Nuhoch Wallow at the end of the Nuhoch Lane. Fight or run through chak that guard the hatchery to commune with this point in the center of the cave to complete the hero challenge.


It seems like ley energy is an integral part of the chak life cycle.

Leave it alone.


  • Nuhoch Wallows must be trained for entry while Itzel Poison Lore must be trained to survive the cave as it is full of poisonous clouds which kill players within seconds otherwise.
  • The group event Kill the enraged chak overlord spawns in the center of the cave around the point. If alive and in combat, commune may be difficult. It is perhaps easier/recommended to approach cautiously opposite the champion without pulling aggro, allowing the challenge to be completed without killing the champ.
