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.


Mount up and use your Lasso special action skill to lasso the beast. You will typically need 3-5 players in order to successfully stop the Hydra, as it will have the Swift Flight effect, making it far too quick to catch otherwise. Once it's been successfully lassoed, damage it until it runs again. Repeat as needed.





Event start
Havel: Isn't it beautiful? I'd be a lot more scared if the end of the world wasn't coming.
When one of the hydra's head gets decapitated
Havel: You really should take care of that head!
Event success
Havel: There was a hydra here. Was. The world changes quickly these days.
