When a Vykathi Builder arrives they will close off the route in which they arrived from, altering the room exits. The Vykathi Excavator is the opposite - when they arrive they create a new room exit.
Vykathi are an infamous race of carnivorous insects. Their excavators are suited for burrowing and mining, spraying down a stone surface with a natural acid before tearing at it with their powerful front legs.
The Vykathi are an insectoid race that live in an area known as The Hive. The Hive is a constantly-changing maze so it is advisable that you not stray far from the original room in which you enter.
How To Get In
A fortress named Chyolvea Tayeu'a was erected over the hive and serves as a gateway. To get to the fortress you must find the River Camp on a switchback trail in the Dragon Spine Mountains (Map 65) and then RECITE the following:
"Neath the depths of darkness I go
To scape the prying eyes of light.
Under Dragons Spine I crawl
To crawl out from under the Dragons Shadow"
Wait at the camp until a Mountain Elf Ranger leads you to the fortress.
Once you are at the fortress you can only get past the checkpoint to The Hive if you are wearing a triskele medallion or are lead by someone wearing a triskele medallion. The triskele medallion can only be obtained by a Warrior Mage's small familiar within a vent inside the familiars' eating place.
Once you are past the checkpoint you will be faced with "a pale green crystal orb." When the orb is touched there is a deafening explosion followed by the appearance of "Xykvit's Egress." This is the entrance to The Hive.
