A Beast Sworn Heket, a typical Heket

Heket are a class of monster, i.e. a species in the bestiary of Guild Wars.

Prolific and belligerent, amphibious heket are a nuisance to anyone traveling across Elona. These toad-like creatures thrive in water, but prefer to survive in arid areas. The farther they’re found from their spawning grounds, the darker the days ahead will be. No matter where they claim their territory, heket spawn in alarming quantities. From the moment they’re born, they savage each other as they compete for the few resources in the area. The crude concept of bashing someone on the head for food is instinctual, and heket become more aggressive as they grow larger. Once a region cannot support any more heket, they lurch from their breeding grounds searching for food. By the time a band of them begins attacking human travelers, exterminating them is a public service.

Heket usually travel in physical dominated groups, consisting of primarily Warriors and Rangers. The Ranger version of Heket, Beast Sworn Heket, are melee combatants and use their pet for their main source of damage and interrupts. Most Heket Warriors, Stoneaxe Heket, have the ability to inflict Deep Wound with Dismember and interrupt with Agonizing Chop. Be careful when inflicting conditions against Blood Cowl Heket due to their use of Contagion which will spread these same conditions back to you.

There are also various close subspecies of hekets that inhabit parts of the Tarnished Coast in Tyria, including Hyleks, Agari, Gokirs, and Ophils. They resemble frogs, and are referred to as Frogmen in-game, although they have all the properties of Hekets and will drop Juicy Heket Legs when defeated while the She Hungers quest is active. Some consider these Frogmen to be a completely different group than the Heket.

Items droppedEdit

Heket drop the following loot (besides gold, various weapons and items):


Some Beast Sworn Heket have been seen carrying bows, not out of the ordinary considering they are Rangers, but they normally carry an Axe and a Shield. While they do shoot the bow, their attack animation is still as if it was wielding an axe and shield.
