Fend off the leviathan are two level 80 group events that occur at the bottom part of Seitung Harbor in Seitung Province, and the northern area of Kaineng Docks in New Kaineng City.

This event is started by talking to Fahd al'Eshadhi and agreeing to help. The appearance of Fahd al'Eshadhi indicated onscreen with the following message: "Beware! Something dangerous has been drawn to this area due to overfishing."

Reward tier Experience Karma Coin
Gold 26,670 Experience.png 378 Karma.png 88 Copper coin
Silver 20,003 Experience.png 284 Karma.png 66 Copper coin
Bronze 13,335 Experience.png 189 Karma.png 44 Copper coin
These are the expected rewards for a level 80 player.

Note: Completing the event more than twice in a row on the same map won't yield the bonus chest which contains the following rewards. Swapping back and forth between Seitung Province and New Kaineng City is strongly recommended when farming this event.


  • The leviathan has 8 stacks of Thick Skin (Leviathan).png Thick Skin effect, which reduces incoming damage by 10% per stack. One stack will regenerate every 10 seconds. To get rid of this effect players can use Depth Charges skill on their skiff. Once all stacks have been removed, they will only regenerate after an extended period of time[verification requested]. Alternatively, players can get inhaled by the leviathan. There, they can destroy Attack Spots that are located on the sides and then its uvula, located on the ceiling, to stun the creature and get rid of the effect, applying Exposed.png Exposed in the process.
  • In Seitung Province, it is possible to stand on the adolescent leviathan's head to use terrestrial combat skills.






When the event is ready to start
Event boss (tango icon).pngBeware! Something dangerous has been drawn to this area due to overfishing.
Event start
Fahd al'Eshadhi: Stay vigilant for naga. They may interfere, since they worship leviathans as deities.
Fahd al'Eshadhi: So, they're one of the few creatures leviathans won't eat. Though I suspect the true reason is because naga taste awful.
During combat
Fahd al'Eshadhi: Its scales are too strong to pierce with weapons. You'll have to find a more direct way to attack its vitals.
Fahd al'Eshadhi: Watch yourself near it! It's strong and unpredictable—a fatal combination!
Fahd al'Eshadhi: It seems to be consuming everything in its sight. Could we use its hunger to our advantage?
Fahd al'Eshadhi: Switch focus to those naga fiends!
Fahd al-Eshadhi: Ready yourself—naga are closing in!

(One of the following)
Fahd al'Eshadhi: It's zeroing in on you! Back away, quickly!
Fahd al'Eshadhi: Take cover! It's about to strike!
Fahd al'Eshadhi: Careful, it may strike soon!
Event success
Fahd al'Eshadhi: You've done well. Maybe I'll think twice before underestimating a land-shambler again.
Fahd al'Eshadhi: Strange... Still, I sense a heaviness in these seas. Though I suppose certain darkness can't be drowned so easily.
