24,680 (at level 110)
Defeat Emperor Korthek.
- Speak with Vorrik
Korthek finally approaches.
It's been many years since I've faced him in battle. When he first rose to power, I failed my people. I will not falter again.
I am prepared to do what must be done. What I should have done long ago.
When you are prepared, we will face him together.
("Slay Emperor Korthek and retrieve the key to prevent Mythrax's summoning!")
You will also receive:
Do not waste time mourning my old friend now. His foolish crusade has left us a larger problem that demands our full, immediate attention.
Talk to Vorrik:
- Let us end this together.
- Vorrik, I'm ready to face Emperor Korthek.
A short cutscene begins, showing Korthek appearing in front of the entrance into the Temple of Sethraliss in a flash of lightning.
- Emperor Korthek says: You face the might of Korthek, the Eternal Emperor!
As soon as the cutscene ends, Nisha and Vorrik immediately run forward and begin fighting Korthek.
- Emperor Korthek says: I am the true power of the sethrak!
- Vorrik says: No. You are our failure. Sethraliss sacrificed herself so we could live in peace.
- Vorrik says: We will keep Mythrax's prison sealed, and I will unite our people.
In battle, Korthek uses Cascade (which summons a damaging ball of lightning that lands at a target location and then bounces forward two times), Shock (which deals direct Nature damage), and Windwall (which summons a rotating wall of tornadoes that deal Nature damage to anyone standing in them). Interrupt Shock when possible and avoid being hit by Cascade and Windwall.
Around 75% health:
- Emperor Korthek says: I wonder, Vorrik... If you're here, who's guarding the keys in your temple?
- Vorrik says: What have you done, Korthek?
- Emperor Korthek says: Ensured my victory no matter what happens here. General Jakra'zet already has my key, and by now... I suppose he has yours, as well.
- Emperor Korthek says: He will raise Mythrax, and we will conquer all of Azeroth!
- Vorrik says: You fool! Mythrax cannot be controlled!
At 1% health, the wounded emperor becomes unattackable.
- Emperor Korthek says: I did not force anyone to follow me, Vorrik... Our people are conquerors...
- Vorrik says: No, old friend. Our people are dead, because of you.
- Vorrik says: And now, you must join them. Sethraliss forgive you.
- Vorrik strikes the final blow against Korthek, killing him.
Vorrik and Nisha go to stand a short distance south. Talk to Vorrik to turn in.
