Bukdek Byway is a densely populated area of Kaineng City, with several levels of housing and confusing passages to navigate. The southeastern corner is controlled by the Am Fah of the Undercity while the Jade Brotherhood holds sway towards the northeast. The Afflicted have some presence in the center of the area.

Contents

Getting there

Factions characters will travel north from the Marketplace through here on their way to Kaineng Center for the first time. Non-Factions characters will be required to leave Kaineng Center and travel through this area as part of the primary quest Welcome to Cantha. Many secondary quests take place here.

Exits

Shrines

Resurrection shrines with a statue

Humans (Jade Brotherhood)

Bosses

Humans (Jade Brotherhood; none of these will spawn during Chasing Zenmai)

Notes

  • Vanquisher runs of this area without active quests require defeating around 135 foes. Including quest influences, it has been reported to range from 1 to 228.
    • If Chasing Zenmai is active, there are several ways you can get credit for Vanquishing by killing less than 10 foes, since that quest allows you to enter an area initially devoid of any foes. Enter from the Marketplace and avoid triggering the remainder of the quest:
      • With The Afflicted Guard active, only one kill is needed (start from Kaineng Center).
      • With The Drunken Master active and with The Afflicted Guard inactive, start from Kaineng Center; you only need to defeat Drinkmaster Tahnu to get credit for the VQ. If you start from the Marketplace, then Jade Brotherhood enemies will appear.
      • If neither of those are active, take the Missing Daughter, which spawns around 10 foes.
      • Without any of these active, approach Bryan from the west, but send only heroes and henchmen to him; do not let any players get within compass range. This causes three Am Fah to spawn (which your team can defeat), without triggering any Jade Brotherhood groups. This reduces the number of foes to around 55-60, mostly Jade Brotherhood.
    • Initiate Zei Ri will help you vanquish during Cleansing Bukdek Byway/Cleansing Bukdek Byway (Hard mode), until the last Afflicted is killed.

Trivia

  • There are at least two ambient animals in the area:
    • A napping cat, curled up near the shrine of Balthazar (southeast exit to the Undercity) that will occasionally flick its tail or stretch itself; it was modeled after Linsey Murdock's pet.
    • A dog, resembling a pug, in a trough up the left staircase after exiting Kaineng Center.
