Basic Info
Campaign: Factions
Type: Outpost
Part of: The Jade Sea
Unwaking Waters (explorable)


The site of Cantha's most infamous murder, the Harvest Temple in which Emperor Angsiyan was struck down by the treacherous Shiro Tagachi still stands. It is the geographic epicenter of the Jade Wind; a place of fear, danger, and bitter memories. Here the mighty dragon Kuunavang still lurks in the caverns beneath the temple, utterly corrupted by the proximity of Shiro's death wail.

Getting there

Complete the Unwaking Waters mission.




Harvest Temple


Kaoya Zun Temple was a holy site on an island in the Jade Sea (before it was frozen by the Jade Wind). It is the site of the Emperor's annual ritual during the Harvest Ceremony.

200 years ago, Shiro Tagachi slew the Emperor on this sacred ground. When Shiro was slain, letting out his terrible cry and triggering the Jade Wind, the entire temple sank in a giant whirlpool moments before the Jade Sea froze into hard jade. Kaoya Zun is more commonly referred to as Kuan Jun, or simply "the Harvest Temple".


Bug.png Bug! When the Kurzick/Luxon border changes, the guards who are supposed to take over the outpost will get stuck which sometimes results in BOTH Kurzick Guards and Luxon Guards wandering around. However, this has no actual effect on the outpost and it still changes to the correct faction.
