Random ally spawns[edit]

One of the following allies will drop down from a tree and join your party near the portal:

Arachnid (Shining Blade)

Humans (Ebon Falcons)

The Ebon Falcons will begin to spawn as an ally escort after viewing the Captain Langmar Arrives in Lion's Arch dialogue. Until then you will only get Shining Blade members.

  • Like most of Kryta after completion of Prophecies or Eye of the North this area becomes considerably more difficult to vanquish. Peacekeeper groups usually appear in large numbers with balanced parties and more complex builds than most Prophecies NPCs.
  • Vanquisher runs of this area without active quests require defeating around 154 foes.
    • While the Heirlooms of the Mad King Halloween quest is active and not completed, default Kessex Peak spawns are restored (i.e. War in Kryta NPCs do not spawn).
    • The Peacekeepers and local creatures are hostile to each other.
