Wail of the Whale is a quest with a boss called the Wailing Whale. Defeating this boss will unlock the Whale Quest Pet. The quest scroll can be purchased from the Quest Shop for 4 gems.

The Wailing Whale's HP (500) makes this a medium length quest and its strength multiplier (1.5) make this an easy quest. Without using Warrior or Mage boss damaging skills, a four-person party can typically finish this quest in about two weeks.


You arrive at the Diligent Docks, hoping to take a submarine to watch the Dilatory Derby. Suddenly, a deafening bellow forces you to stop and cover your ears. "Thar she blows!" cries Captain @krazjega, pointing to a huge, wailing whale. "It's not safe to send out the submarines while she's thrashing around!"

"Quick," calls @UncommonCriminal. "Help me calm the poor creature so we can figure out why she's making all this noise!


Defeat the Wailing Whale.

After much hard work, the whale finally ceases her thunderous cry. "Looks like she was drowning in waves of negative habits," @zoebeagle explains. "Thanks to your consistent effort, we were able to turn the tides!" As you step into the submarine, several whale eggs bob towards you, and you scoop them up.
