Destroy the Brain of Iso'rath.

  • Kill Iso'rath


Iso'rath's brain is revealed! The shaman you've saved should keep you somewhat safe amidst his defenses.

Strike at the brain and destroy Iso'rath!


You saved many of my closest allies today, <name>. I can only imagine what horrors you witnessed within Iso'rath, but you have the thanks of all of the Earthen Ring.


You will receive:

You will also be able to choose one of the following:

Inv pants leather cataclysm b 02.png
[Woundseal Leggings]
Inv helmet plate cataclysm b 02.png
[Weeping Scar Cover]
Inv jewelry necklace 46.png
[Nightmare Choker]


  • As with the previous quest, Earthmender Duarn will summon a healing bubble. Stay near him the entire fight.
  • You may find you have to abandon and reaccept the quest if your shaman companions don't spawn or if you cannot attack the brain. Make sure you aren't on your flying mount.
  • Immediately after killing the brain, a gryphon will spawn and automatically fly you out of Iso'rath. It is possible to die after this if your digestive acids bar is filled too high.
  • Upon completion of the quest, players will earn the Inv jewelry ring ahnqiraj 05.png [Consumed by Nightmare] achievement.


Upon killing the Brain:

Earthcaller Yevaa says: You're truly a force to be reckoned with. The beast is done with. Let's get out of here.
