Earlier this month, we (and, much to our regret, you) were hit with a technical problem that made it impossible to fight the Giant Kralove. Good news: All that is ancient history now! So… what do you say we celebrate with a spontaneous Dungeon Rusher event?


Many of you were frustrated when you found yourselves blocked from beating up on the Giant Kralove at the start of April. And within just a few days, vast oceans of digital ink had been spilled on the subject… Some wondered whether the tentacled monster had decided to take an early retirement on the beaches of Otomai Island. Others speculated that the beast had been defeated once and for all by a renowned Bontarian chef and was now being served in a rich, buttery sauce in the World of Twelve's most exclusive restaurants.

But in fact, the reason for its absence was a much more mundane one: The Giant Kralove had simply decided to take a few days of well-deserved rest. After all, even the most fearsome monsters sometimes need a vacation!

Just after the maintenance of Wednesday, April 27, the enormous octopus slithered back into view with a serious urge to smack down some adventurers. In other words, good news: Now you can make up for lost time!

You've even got two options for how to go about it: You can take on the uncontested lord of the Peat Bogs the "normal" way, or jump into the Dungeon Rusher event we've organized at the last second to celebrate its return! From Sunday, May 1 at 12:01 AM (Paris time) through Saturday, May 7 at 11:59 PM (Paris time), make your way to the Lair of the Giant Kralove on Otomai Island. If you're tough enough, you could win a Trophy Giant Kralove Shield!*


After defeating the Giant Kralove in its dungeon, you'll automatically receive the Trophy Giant Kralove Shield at the end of the fight. The event ends on Saturday, May 7 at 11:59 PM (Paris time), after which you will no longer be able to claim your reward.


  • The shield is ceremonial and linked to the character.
  • You can get the shield with several characters on the same account, as long as you re-do the dungeon with each character.
  • You cannot obtain the shield by killing the boss in an arena.

*Offer valid once per character. Monsters killed in arenas don't count. When you win the shield, it will automatically appear in your inventory.
