Kill as many chak as you can before the timer runs out.

Getting there[edit]

If you have Nuhoch Wallows.pngNuhoch Wallows mastery unlocked, the easiest way is to take the wallows near the Waypoint (map icon).png Rata Novus Waypoint in Rata Novus then proceed south down the Rata Novus Lane. On the west side of the lane is a golem which will bring you to the instance. Otherwise, just use the Ley-Line Confluence Waypoint and run up to the mouth of the Rata Novus Lane, with the entrance being on your left.


Upon starting the adventure, you will be in a battle suit with 100,000 HP and you are tasked to kill the hundreds of chak that spawn down the lane and begin to wander randomly. They will not attack you and die within a couple hits, so focus on hitting as many as you can with every hit, potentially using CC skills to gather them closer to each other for large hits.


You can ignore skill 1 and skill 3. Skill 2 is your main attack skill. Just keep spamming skill 2 to kill groups of chak. You can use skill 4 when ever it is off cooldown inbetween skill 2 usages. When skill 5 is off cooldown, use it to gather multiple chak in one spot to follow up with skill 2 to finish them off.
