Prove your strength to the Ox Spirit is a level 80 dynamic event that occurs at the Frostborn Cascades in Bjora Marches.


  • Use the Ox Priest's[sic] talisman to drag offerings to the shrine
  • Event bar empty2.jpg
  • Time remaining: 0:30


Use the special action skill  Become the Ox.png Become the Ox to transform yourself into a Ox. Then, interact with a salt block, this gives you Weighed Down by Debris.png Test of Ox's Strength effect and attaches the salt block to you, and you can slowly drag it towards the shrine. Getting hit by enemies will apply Unseen Burden.png Ox's Burden effect, slowing you per stack and knocking you out of Ox form after 5 stacks. The ox transformation will replace your skills with  Wild Charge.png Wild Charge, which allows you to charge into enemies and stun them.

After the event reaches 50% completion, green AoEs will start to appear on the ground every few seconds. After a short countdown, a block of ice will fall at the location, creating a shockwave that damages players and knocks them out of Ox form if hit. Standing in the AoE when the ice falls will prevent the shockwave from appearing and will grant you the Thoughtless Potion (effect).png Inspired Strength effect, increasing your damage and movement speed.
