The House of Rituals is one of the five houses that rule Maldraxxus. Filled with sorcerers, necromancers and liches, the House of Rituals is the afterlife for those of a magical bent, who thrived in war, including the lich Kel'Thuzad.

Every House in Maldraxxus has two Barons,[1] and the barons of the House of Rituals are, at first, Kel'Thuzad and Baroness Ninadar, but both barons betray Sin'dane in pursuit of power. Ninadar falls subservient to Kel'Thuzad, who aims to become the new Margrave; though she is ultimately slain by the Maw Walker. Kel'Thuzad's alliance to the Jailer revealed, he escapes; abandoning the House of Rituals. Margrave Sin'dane sides with the adventurer after she is saved from an attempt at Kel'thuzad consuming her power, appointing Balmedar as the new Baron of Rituals.




During beta, it was known as the House of Liches; the old name still appears in a few places in-game.[2]
