The Hook

Map of The Hook region

The Hook is a region within the Wushanko Isles accessible by the Player owned ports minigame, found east of The Arc and between The Skull and The Scythe. It is the third region opened up by the player advancing through the minigame. The Hook is less settled than The Skull. Apart from deposits of black slate, which is quarried by a dispersed population of mining colonies, it is otherwise mostly barren and a fine place for those seeking solitude for whatever reason.
