Route from Teku Nuhoch Waypoint using the Beetle Feast route

Interactive map

Hidden away in a cave guarded by many aggressive mushroom named foes stand a proud couple of royalty, a Veteran Mushroom King and a Veteran Mushroom Queen who seem to guard this spore cloud. Kill them and commune with this point to complete the hero challenge.

Getting there[edit]

There are two possible routes from Teku Nuhoch Waypoint to this hero challenge. The first route is to travel the length of the Beetle Feast course (requires Bouncing Mushrooms to access) - either by taking part in the adventure (using skill 2 to burrow under gates), or in your normal form (by killing all the mushrooms to open the gate). The second route is to glide from Teku Nuhoch over to the area beyond the end of the Beetle Feast course, and then ascend the steep slope. Either way, when you reach the communing point the pair of mushroom royalty will be standing in your way. Kill or stealth past them to commune successfully.
