Requirements Edit

To find the Kris the player must have spoken to the "Huntmaster" in Phon Coast and defeated Thalassinon, which will trigger the start of the Rare Game quest. Kris then has a 40% chance of spawning in one of two locations in the Highlands area of the Tchita Uplands, east of the Gate Crystal. Both locations are near the two large circular stone buildings on the map.

Etymology Edit

The kris is a type of dagger from the Malayan archipelago. Often with a wavy blade, the kris is used for spiritual means, as well as a weapon, and can often represent good or bad luck.

The word kris (traditionally spelled as "keris") is originally derived from the old Javanese term ngiris which means to slice, wedge or sliver. Other spellings used by European colonists include "cryse", "crise", "criss", "kriss" and "creese".

Originally, a kris is a short, wavy dagger with a small guard. Some types are straight, but one side of the blade is preferred wavy. The kris itself is a famous sparring weapon and also an assassination weapon.
