  • The Convocation grants access, but any characters that have not completed Arborstone will be left behind in Pongmei Valley.
  • Access through Boreas Seabed (explorable area) is unavailable because there is no route leading there without having completed Boreas Seabed.

  • Retrieve the Spear of Archemorus.
  • Defeat Zhu Hanuku using the Spear of Archemorus.

Defeat the three Luxon clans and their champions one by one to earn the right to challenge Zhu Hanuku. Each group has two bosses, and the next will enter the arena as soon as the previous group is killed. The Crab Clan will be your first opponent from the South-East corner. The Serpent Clan seconds from the South-West corner. And last the Turtle Clan from the North-West lead by Argo, a very hard elementalist boss who uses Argo's Cry, a skill stronger than Meteor Shower (interrupts highly recommended). Since they all spawn inside narrow corridors, use its gate as choke points before they spread.

Members of the Luxon teams (bosses are marked in bold):

Crab Clan Serpent Clan Turtle Clan
Champion Ranger Daeman Ranger Aurora Elementalist Argo
Members Warrior Seaguard Eli
Ranger Luxon Ranger (2)
Unknown Pet - Elder Reef Lurker (2)
Necromancer Luxon Necromancer
Warrior Luxon Warrior (2)
Monk Seaguard Gita
Mesmer Luxon Mesmer
Elementalist Luxon Elementalist (2)
Mesmer Seaguard Hala
Assassin Luxon Assassin

Winning the Convocation gives you access to the Spear of Archemorus, an optional and recommended bundle item that can deal a max damage of 1900 at its level five when dropped (see its cumulative power here). Take it and head towards the Kraken boss, avoid aggro while fighting it.

This is a dangerous enemy: its Jade Fury skill deals significant area of effect damage and also has two resurrection skills to bring back the Kraken Spawns. Fortunately, its skills have long activation time, which can be easily interrupted.

Opening cinematic[edit]

Togo: "First we locate Elder Rhea. She is the key to finding and securing the Spear of Archemorus."
Togo: "Ah, there she is. Come. The spear is within our reach."
Togo: "Elder Rhea. Elder Rhea. It is I, Togo of Shing Jea Monastery."
Elder Rhea: "Master Togo, you are quite a sight. I wondered when you would emerge from your self-styled exile."
Elder Rhea: "How you manage to live within the confines of that stuffy monastery I'll never comprehend."
Togo: "Ah...well, I suppose my spirit does not crave the wide open spaces as strongly as yours."
Elder Rhea: "Well, it's good to see you. What brings you all the way out here?"
Togo: "We have come for the Spear of Archemorus."
Elder Rhea: "Togo, you know full well I cannot just give you the spear."
Togo: "Oh no?"
Elder Rhea: "No! Today Zhu Hanuku, the great kraken, returns from the deep."
Elder Rhea: "What do you study in that monastery of yours?"
Togo: "Apparently not enough Luxon culture."
Elder Rhea: "Apparently."
Elder Rhea: "Every year Zhu Hanuku returns. And on that day we hold the Convocation."
Elder Rhea: "The strongest among us fight for the right to be the one who defeats the great magical kraken, returning him to the waves."
Togo: "That is very nice but-"
Elder Rhea: "The Convocation is today. The spear goes to the winning clan."
Togo: "Rhea-"
Elder Rhea: "Togo, if you want the spear, you'll have to fight them for it."

Argo: "Another Convocation has come, and with it Zhu Hanuku, the mighty sea beast who has terrorized the Jade Sea for hundreds of years."
Argo: "I return the spear to the pedestal, the prize of today's contest."
Argo: "May the strongest clan take up its haft and once again slay the magical kraken."
Argo: "To all those we are about to defeat, I salute you."

Initial dialogue[edit]

Elder Rhea: "Hear me, Luxons. The imperial dragon of the north has sent its champions in search of the Spear of Archemorus. They shall have it only if they are worthy.
Elder Rhea: "Enter the arena, outsiders. Fight for your lives. Fight for the spear. The Convocation has begun!"

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

When Daeman's team enters the arena:

Daeman: "No outsider shall steal what belongs to the Luxon Armada. We are the Crab! Unrelenting. Unbending. Unbreakable.

When Daeman's team is defeated:

Daeman: "How is it possible?"

When Aurora's team enters the arena:

Aurora: "Do not think the Serpent will fall as easily as the reckless Crab. Be warned: where the Serpent strikes, death is sure to follow."

When Aurora's team is defeated:

Aurora: "I welcome this death."

When Argo's team enters the arena:

Argo: "It has been many years since the roar of the Canthan dragon has been heard in the Jade Sea. Your strength and courage brings honor to you and your people."
Argo: "Now you face Argo of the Turtle. Fight well, that our battle may be one for the ages. The Spear of Archemorus will be yours if you defeat me."

When Argo's team is defeated:

Argo: "Forgive me, my friends."

Intermediate cinematic[edit]

Elder Rhea: "You have bested our champions and earned the right to fight Zhu Hanuku."
Elder Rhea: "I believe this is what you came for. The Spear of Archemorus is yours."
<Party leader>: "Thank you, Elder Rhea. We accept the spear and the honor of fighting the kraken."
<Party leader>: "We shall make you proud."
Elder Rhea: "Yes. I expect you shall."

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Elder Rhea: "The Spear of Archemorus becomes more powerful with each death that occurs within its range. Try to kill enemies at close range whenever possible while carrying the spear."

End cinematic[edit]

<Party leader>: "The kraken is dead."
Togo: "A more well-deserved victory I have not witnessed."
Brother Mhenlo: "Master Togo. Master Togo."
Togo: "Mhenlo, come celebrate with us. We have the Spear of Archemorus."
Brother Mhenlo: "It's none to [sic] soon. Shiro is on the move."
<Party leader>: "What? Where?"
Brother Mhenlo: "He was last seen in the undercity, below Kaineng."
Togo: "Then we must go the undercity."
Togo: "We will take this fight to Shiro."
