— In-game description

Kraitkin is a legendary trident crafted in the Mystic Forge.


Mystic Forge
Output qty.

Contained in[edit]


Kraitkin is a krait inspired trident with multiple moving eel heads that spray green bubbles, and small fish dart and twirl around the trident. The trident itself has a light-green trail effect. This effect comes from the green bubbles that are continuously being sprayed from the mouths of the eels.

  • The user is surrounded by bubbles and scales, which also leave a trail while moving.
Draw/Stow effects
  • When drawn, a burst of bubbles will appear, as well as a red aura that changes to blue and emanates from the user's body.
  • The eels on the trident move and spray out green bubbles when their mouths open.
  • There are two currents of water around the shaft which flow up towards the head of the trident.

Available prefixes[edit]

The following prefixes can be selected:


Original (bugged) appearance at night.
  • Kraitkin was originally thought to have a different appearance at night, as the eels would become petrified and emit a faint but noticeable light-green glow, along with an aura of bubbles that would appear around the whole trident. This was eventually removed, and later confirmed to be a bug.[1]
