A fisherman wants to take his pack bull to drink in the lake but is afraid of pirate ambushes. Player's character promises to protect them, and Lionscout Kealin, who overhears the conversation, follows. A large Alpha Drake appears and swallows the fisherman, while the bull runs to take shelter uphill. Players have to kill the drake with Kealin's help, preferably before it digests the fisherman.

The drake puts down poison pools and summons Regurgitated Drake Food, low level enemies that are useful for rallying off of. It eats players like the fisherman, but this doesn't do any damage, and merely disables them for a few seconds. It expels eaten players in a poison pool.

If event is successful, the fisherman will become a merchant offering a selection of Half-Eaten boots for a few minutes. The event respawns and can be started again 10 minutes after the previous one has been completed.
