Collect resilience essence to impress Ox. Avoid Ox's attempts to knock you back, as each hit will consume some of your collected essence.

— Adventure objective

The Ox's Yoke is an adventure in Drizzlewood Coast. It can be started by talking to the Arena of the Ox shrine at Sentinel Bay, east of the Forward Camp Waypoint. The shrine is located in the upper level of the cavern, accessed via the Eastern path, North of the Forward Camp Waypoint. Look up to find the wooden bridges above and either fly or climb up to the upper level.

Mechanics[edit]

Red colored balls of resilience will spawn on the hill side going up. You will need to collect as many as possible within the time limit.

At the very top is an Ox spirit that will spit out blue balls of energy. If you touch a ball of energy, you will lose 5 collected resilience.

Dialogue[edit]

Upon first interacting with the shrine:

Corrupted Ox Spirit: I know you. You were with Eirsson back in the Marches. There is great strength in you...and I will test it.
<Character Name>: Do what you have to. I'm ready.

Once you accept the challenge:

Corrupted Ox Spirit: You were the one who turned into ox. Pulled offerings to my shrine back in the Marches.
Corrupted Ox Spirit: But it is easy to prove your strength by transforming into the strongest Spirit in the pantheon.
Corrupted Ox Spirit: I want to see your true strength! I ant to see what it takes to exhaust the famed Pact Commander!

After you finish the challenge:

Corrupted Ox Spirit: So, your strength is no illusion. I am impressed, even with Jormag's bile coursing through my mind.
Corrupted Ox Spirit: But on my worst day, I am still stronger than any of the creatures they send in my name.
