You Are Rakh'likh, Demon (Alliance)
- For the pre-Cataclysm quest, see .
57 (Requires 54)
- Razelikh's body destroyed
- Razelikh's soul imprisoned
Hero, listen well.
First, we must travel to the Deathly Usher, who waits at the northern foot of the Rise of the Defiler, to our northwest. The usher will take us to the top of the rise. Once there, you will help me defeat Razelikh, for I fear I am not strong enough to defeat him alone.
Most importantly, I need you to hold the stone knife, and do not use it until I tell you to. The knife will trap Razelikh's soul within its new, eternal prison.
("Rakh'likh: Your knowledge of his true name shall prove to be his undoing.")
You again? Has Kasim found more work for me?
Loramus, resurrected!? And then he trapped the demon inside his own body... by the Light...
I see. So this was Kasim's plan all along. I suspected correctly, but I suppose I refused to believe it.
Ah, one last thing! Kasim left one more instruction for me within his rune. I did not understand it at first, but given the events that have taken place today, it now makes much more sense:
He asked me to let you choose from one of these.
- I am bound eternally to this cursed world. What is it you desire, mortal?
- I wish to face the Defiler.
Choose the gossip option to be transported to the top of the Rise, where Rakh'likh awaits. After the fight, you can return here by jumping down the north face partway, where there is a bright blue rune on the ground. Step on the rune to be transported back to the ground.
- Before the fight begins
- Loramus Thalipedes says: Demon! I have returned from beyond the grave to destroy you!
- Loramus Thalipedes says: Death has not erased my memory. I still know your name...
- Loramus Thalipedes yells: RAKH'LIKH! Come, and know demise!
- Razelikh the Defiler yells: Fool of a demon hunter. How many pieces must I cut you into this time?
Rakh'likh will turn hostile, and can potentially attempt to knock the player off the Rise. If this occurs, Loramus will pull the player back:
- Loramus Thalipedes yells: Hold on!
- Loramus Thalipedes yells: Return to me!
Eventually, Razelikh will stop the fight and address Loramus directly.
- Razelikh the Defiler yells: Enough games!
- Razelikh the Defiler says: What's this? Loramus... I see, they used the Altar of Storms, didn't they?
- Razelikh the Defiler says: You must feel it already then... the demonic energy entering your heart, your lungs, your soul...
- Razelikh the Defiler yells: Allow me to speed up the process a bit!
Razelikh will then possess Loramus, who becomes Loramus the Defiled and turns hostile.
- Loramus the Defiled says: Now, heroes! Finish me, while Rakh'likh possesses my body!
- Loramus the Defiled yells: [Demonic] Lok zenn Za enkil refir mordanas lok zenn (SWEET SASSY MOLASSEY THE PAIN!)
After wearing down Loramus the Defiled, the following will occur:
- Loramus the Defiled says: Quickly! Use the knife on me! Time runs short!
- Use the to defeat Loramus the Defiled!
- When used, the player leaps forward, stabbing the knife into Loramus' chest.
- Loramus the Defiled says: It is done. Leave me here, then, while I wrestle with Rakh'likh in the next world. Your job here is done, heroes.
