  • Rotate the eastern valve.
  • Kill TokHaar-Hok.
    • Pray melee the entire fight.

    • You do not need to kill the spawned enemies - higher level players may focus on TokHaar-Hok. When he is defeated, the spawned enemies will die.

      • In legacy mode, you need to stun him with a special attack.
