On Wednesday, 1 October 2014 at 10 am Pacific Time (17:00 UTC), ArenaNet will be upgrading the wiki to MediaWiki software version 1.23.2. The maintenance is expected to last up to 90 minutes and the wiki will be unavailable during its duration. We’re sorry about the inconvenience and thank you very much for your patience.

Prolific and belligerent, amphibious heket are a nuisance to anyone traveling across Elona. These creatures thrive in water, but prefer to survive in arid areas. The farther they’re found from their spawning grounds, the darker the days ahead will be. No matter where they claim their territory, heket spawn in alarming quantities. From the moment they’re born, they savage each other as they compete for the few resources in the area. The crude concept of bashing someone on the head for food is instinctual, and heket become more aggressive as they grow larger. Once a region cannot support any more heket, they lurch from their breeding grounds searching for food. By the time a band of them begins attacking human travelers, exterminating them is a public service.

[edit] Trivia

Gw2logo.png The Guild Wars 2 Wiki also has an article on Hylek.
  • Heqet was a frog-goddess in ancient Egypt.
  • The second word of the heket names in Guild Wars Eye of the North seems to be taken from the Aztec Nahuatl language. Roughly translated, "Amini" means "hunter," "Tlamatini" means "wise man," "Nahualli" means "evil magician" or "warlock," and "Cuicana" means "singer."
  • The name Hylek is probably a reference to the frog family Hylidae commonly referred to as "tree frogs".
  • Hylek is the name of Heket in Guild Wars 2.
