Adventure Guide

For over two hundred years, King Rastakhan has ruled the Zandalari empire. Since the fall of Rezan, he has turned to a new patron--Bwonsamdi, the loa of death. The dark bargain he has made grants him the power to crush his enemies... but at what cost?

Overview

King Rastakhan calls upon his retinue of bodyguards to defend him and his throne room.

After Rastakhan's bodyguards have been dispatched, Rastakhan calls upon his Loa, Bwonsamdi, to come and aid him.

When Rastakhan reaches 60% health he demands that Bwonsamdi empowers him, causing Bwonsamdi transfer a portion of his Death power into Rastakhan. After the transfer, Bwonsamdi shifts to the death realm, pulling the closest half of the party with him.

Once Bwonsamdi is taken to 50% he abandons Rastakhan and teleports all players in the death realm to the realm of the living to finish the fight with Rastakhan.
