Obtain the Brain of the Unfathomable.


I now imbue you with the energies of the corrupting faceless.

Swim down to my luring totem in the trench to the northeast. Release the energies through it. Bring back the brain of their leader.

Call down to Ick'thys the Unfathomable... it will come!

("Ic'thys the Unfathomable. You need its brain!")


You will be able to choose one of these rewards:
Inv chest plate 31
[Chestguard of Cognitive Dissonance]
Spell shadow brainwash
[Brain-Connector Chain]
Inv drink 11
[Mentalist's Protective Bottle]

You will also receive: 16Gold 40Silver


Do you have it, <name>?

With the Unfathomable's brain, we still may yet be able to communicate with L'ghorek, the dying ancient one in front of us.


And now we will see if we can get you into L'ghorek to speak with it before it dies.


Head northeast, down, away from L'ghorek. Look for a big green runic circle. The totem is just to the south of it. Ick'thys is a level 82 faceless one, with 77,000 health and the following abilities:

  • [Mental Battle] 40 yd range—Forces the target to do battle with himself. Summons a Sinister Reflection of the player with ~7000 health and representative abilities of the class. Cast once at the beginning of the fight.
  • [Shadow Bolt] 40 yd range—Hurls a bolt of dark magic at an enemy, inflicting Shadow Damage.
  • [Void Zone] 50,000 yd range—Summon a Void Zone that deals Shadow damage to enemies that stand within it.
    • [Consumption]—Deals Shadow damage to all enemies within the void zone. Instant. 2500-2800 Shadow damage every second

On summon:

Ick'thys the Unfathomable yells: I laugh at you, feeble <name>, but I will oblige. Now, let us return to my master, below!
