The Ing Hive is the heart of the Ing's presence on Dark Aether and has never fallen in battle to the Luminoth. It is the location of one of Dark Aether's Energy Controllers, guarded by Quadraxis. It is the only location on Dark Aether where Ing Larva Swarms can be found and is the home to a large variety of Ing. A small number of Darkling mechanoids, such as the Dark Ingsmasher, patrol this area. It is also the location of two Sky Temple Keys.
