Quest information[edit]

  • Escort Oroku to the corrupted locations so that he can purify them. [0...3] of 3 purified. Oroku must survive.
  • Find the source of the corruption.
  • Defeat Kai Shi Jo and his corrupted kappa.
  • See Lei Jeng for your reward.



Site 1[edit]

Aim for Violent Kappa first.

Site 2[edit]

In Hard Mode at site 2, a good strategy is to: clear the site's 2 area from mobs. Then flag all Heroes upstairs on the left side (as looking from the site 2 into the corridor). Next, run with Oroku to start the waves and as soon as Kappas appear, run upstairs to your Heroes. Or stay down as melee support. Keep an eye on Heroes' health and move them as needed, good idea is to place two Heroes near the edge to keep Kappas' aggro and the rest as support which you move forward and backward when health drops. Give them Flesh of My Flesh for fast Resurrection.

The waves are triggered by killing specified Kappas, probably Violent Kappa or Maddened Kappa. You should try to kill those specified Kappas last, but there are few Kappas of those types in a wave, so you can't be sure which one of them triggers a next wave.

As Kappas can be a little disoriented by the long way around to get upstairs, they can sometimes move back etc., so this strategy makes the site 2 doable without Consumables and with Heroes.

Site 3[edit]

Before entering the site's 3 area - use Consumables to recover if you have any Death Penalty (specifically on the Heroes who kept aggro) and for safety add some party-wide boost.

Again, aim for Violent Kappa first.
