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.

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.
      • With The Drunken Master active, only one kill is needed.
      • 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.
    • To get credit for the Bukdek Byway Zaishen Vanquish, you must kill at least 25 foes (rendering the above methods moot).

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.
