Kholks, Taken of Xivu Arath is a powerful Taken Ogre serving Xivu Arath, God of War and features as one of the final bosses of the Astral Alignment activity. Kholks attempts to secure the Blind Well, but is defeated by the Guardians.


Kholks is one of the two rotating final bosses encountered in the Astral Alignment seasonal activity in Season of the Lost. They prevent the Guardians from completing the realignment of the Ley Lines and capture the Blind Well for their master.

Kholks summons vast hordes of Taken reinforcements, and is capable of firing large volleys of Void Axion Darts, which home in on one specific player at a time, and can potentially kill them if they do not take cover or shoot them down. Once a third of the boss's health has been depleted, they will summon an immunity shield, as well as Taken Champions and Lost Ogres. To take down the shield, players must destroy one of the Blights located in the far corners of Well. This will spawn an Eye of Xivu Arath, which drops an orb of Taken Essence upon being killed. Picking it up will grant the "Taken Essence Antumbra" buff, which will allow the player damage Kholks's shield. This process will repeat one more time before the boss is killed.
