Akola's Apex Ward is a large shield in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire

Description[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.

Long ago, a great Huana Huntress named Akola pitted her strength and endurance against the sea in the Trial of Waves. Armed with a spear, she set out to swim the breadth of the Spiny Reef - a shark-infested shallow beset by powerful surf and unpredictable tides. As she fought the waves, a massive pōraga shark ambushed her from below. If legends are to be believed, Akola battled the shark for three days before emerging as the victor. Exhausted but triumphant, she towed the defeated beast to shore. Its meat fed the people of her village for a month, and with the shark's skin and teeth Akola created this impressive shield.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

  • On a Huana vengeance ship named Whenena Eel's Kiss. You need -3 or -4 reputation with the Huana for the ship to appear.
