    Loot a "Wrext Mal Sacrificial Blade" from a gnoll in Old Blackburrow (uncommon drop from the Wrext Mal gnolls and some of the enraged gnolls in the lower parts of the zone). Upon right-clicking it, you see:

    Perhaps a Gnoll shaman or mystic could discover the use for this dagger.

    Head to the Oceangreen Hills to Elder Mystic Foppye and hand the dagger to him.

    Elder Mystic Foppye growls quietly. 'This dagger is used in a forbidden ritual, _____! The Blackburrow clan must be trying to raise an undead fiend. They already raise reavers, but an item of this power would be used for something much, much worse. You must stop the ritual, or we may all be in grave danger!'

    You have been assigned the task 'Disrupting the Ritual'.

    The Darkpaw Mystic Foppye has informed you that the mysterious dagger you found is used in a ritual to raise an undead annihilator. Such creatures are typically used as juggernauts and assassins, but require lengthy preperation to imbue with power. Enter Blackburrow and find a way to stop the ritual before it is too late!


    The named gnoll "Mundunugu Rawl" has a chance to spawn in this instance. It drops one item per kill:

    Earring of the Mundunugu
    Mundunugu Rawl's Earring
    Shawl of Dreadwishes
    Shawl of Warwishes

    Killing it isn't necessary for task progression.

    Task Steps

    Disrupt the Wrext Mal Ritual and destroy the Annihilator 0/1 (Old Blackburrow)

    Speak with Elder Mystic Foppye 0/1 (Oceangreen Hills)

    The High Channelers

    Upon entering the zone, you'll see several named mobs at the top of the waterfall, each with an aura around it. If you try to get near them, you'll be ported back to the zone-in:

    You are forcibly transported through a rift in space, but sense that the source of its power may come from somewhere below...

    You'll need to head east from the zone-in, through the door on the south side, around the corridor, and to the rope bridges. There, you'll find two High Channelers: "High Channeler Jornlati" and "High Channeler Rezlter".

    High Channeler Rezlter emits a low growl and readies its weapon.
    High Channeler Jornlati emits a low growl and readies its weapon.

    There are splittable (not aggro-linked); hit for a max ~1,450; are mezzable and stunnable; and do not summon. They are Enchanter mobs, casting a variety of spells, including charm.

    Kill them to deactivate the auras around the Ritualists you saw near the zone-in.

    High Channeler Rezlter has been slain by _____!
    High Channeler Rezlter's corpse snarls in defiance and falls to the ground.

    High Channeler Jornlati has been slain by _____!
    High Channeler Jornlati's corpse snarls in defiance and falls to the ground.

    The ritualists' protective auras sputter and disappear.

    The Gnarl Ritualists

    With the High Channelers dead, head back to the zone-in and to the north where you'll find the six Ritualists. These mobs are all Necromancers; hit for a max ~2,050; are splittable from one another; and are mezzable and stunnable.

    Kill all six of them to activate the Wrext Mal Annihilator.

    The high shaman's protective aura sputters and disappears.

    Master Fleshsmith Thrarkios shouts 'You're too late, you fools! The annihilator awakes! Go forth, my minion, and destroy these interlopers. Afterwards, you must track and kill the pathetic human leader, Antonius Bayle.'

    Master Fleshsmith Thrarkios leaps into the pit behind him, retreating to his lair.

    The Annihilator

    The lone mob now left in the ritual area is the Wrext Mal Annihilator. It is a Shadow Knight; hits for a max ~2,450; single-target rampages; and is immune to stuns and mezzes. If you try to slow it, it increases its attack speed.

    You have slain Wrext Mal Annihilator!
    Wrext Mal Annihilator's corpse snarls with defiance and falls to the ground.

    Task Completion

    With the Annihilator dead, you can now head back to Elder Mystic Foppye to complete the task:

    You say, 'Hail, Elder Mystic Foppye'

    Having successfully stopped the Wrext Mal Annihilator and forced the Master Fleshsmith into hiding, you and your allies have struck a significant blow against the corrupt Blackburrow gnolls.

    Your faction standing with Cirtan, Bayle's Herald got better.

    The quest description is wrong they're at the top not the base. The base is the bottom not the top.

    1. Giving Wrext Mal Sacrifical Blade to Elder Mystic Foppye to receive this group task.
    Like other group tasks, task leader can invite others to join, they don't need to have the blade.
    And blade will not be taken, that means you can use same blade to receive the task again if you want.

    2. There is another regular gnoll on the top of cliff called Master something.
    If you consider it, it looks aggressively, but it won't attack or link with Ritualists.
    Its a body container for Annihilator in the ritual.
    If you pull it before killing all of 6 Ritualists, you will be teleported to zone in.
    This will depop after Annihilator activate.

    3. Confirmed only slow causes Annihilator attacks in haste speed.
    If you try to cast a slow spell on it, it will show: "Your spell may have opposite effect to this creature"
    And do not use ANY defensive buff which proc slow.. took us 3 times to learn.
    Beside the slow, proc/pet/dot/nukes works fine to him.
    Annihilator has much less hp than other gnolls, max hit up around 2000.

    Second step of this task once you kill the Annihilator is:

    Speak with Elder Mystic Foppye


    Also for those wondering how to get here, just run to the normal blackburrow zone in and click on it, it will take anyone with your task to an instanced version of the zone instead. Very odd, no compass line or anything.

    How to kill the final mob
    # Dec 01 2008 at 2:09 PM Rating: Decent
    DO NOT use any of the following on the final mob :-






    Procs (if you can help it)

    All of the above will enrage the mob causing his attack speed to quadruple!!

    Just straight DPS the guy, thats all.

    I understand the no slowing him, but why none of the other things like pets, nukes, dots, etc? Can anyone confirm that those should also not be used?
    Insatnced zone

    To answer the question in the walk thru above (at the time of this post, YES... this is an insatnced zone.

    Head east and through the door on south side, around the corridor, and to the rope bridges. Kill the two High Channelers, to activate the Ritualists.

    Head back to the zone in and to the north are six Ritualists, pull and kill all of them, to activate the Annihliator.

    Pull him and kill him, but do not slow him. He rampages.

    Head back to Foppye to finish.

    shared task

    this is a shared task, not a single task. one person handing in a wrext mal sacrifical dagger will get the group task.

    also, you kill the two named High Channelers up from the bottom of the pit, then you can kill the ritualists and the annihilator.

    Why not to slow
    # Nov 01 2008 at 10:37 AM Rating: Decent
    If you slow him, it actually quadruples his attack speed.
