Stop the Neferset Ritual at the Murkdeep Cavern[51.9, 40.1]
  • Neferset Ritual stopped

Inside at the back of the cave is Dark Ritualist Zakahn, a level 84 elite tol'vir with 193,000 health, guarded by a few Ritual Guardians. Take out the guardians first--they will not link to the ritualist.

Zakahn has a few abilities. Use your AoE abilities when he summons the snakes and use interrupts for his shadow bolt volley:

  • Spell shadow shadowbolt  [Shadow Bolt Volley]ω ϖ 30 yd range—Hurls missiles of dark magic, inflicting Shadow damage to nearby enemies. 3 sec cast. Hits for ~8500-9500 Shadow.
  • Dark Ritualist Zakahn yells: Serpents of the depths! Come and aid your master!
