Borak, Son of Oronok at the bridge near Eclipse Point in Shadowmoon Valley wants you to recover the Third Part of the Cipher of Damnation from Ruul the Darkener.

This mission will require a group.

    Third Fragment of the Cipher of Damnation


That Cipher fragment will never reach Zuluhed. You’re going to ambush Ruul the Darkener and his transport before it has a chance to make the delivery.

The Dragonmaw Fortress is directly east of here, across the Netherwing Fields. Somewhere between Dragonmaw Fortress and the Sanctum of the Stars is where you’ll find Ruul. Strike hard and strike fast! And , from the sound of it, this Ruul is going to be tough. Keep your guard up.

Return the Cipher to me should you succeed.


You must act quickly!CompletionFinally! The cipher fragment is ours!

Quest Help Notes

Quest: 10578

T5 geared prot paly, easy solo. Seal of wisdon and Seal of Light are your friends.
Can you kite him somewhere for help? Wildhammer, or Altar of Sha’Tar?
70 prot pally… solo’ed

seal and judge of light
And for anyone who’s curious, kiting him into the Scryer camp doesn’t work – he didn’t use any AoE’s & they didn’t automatically attack him =)

He also runs at mounted speed so it’s slightly awkward anyway, even with the short distance involved. A longer kite would be utterly impractical.
Last night we did this one with three – 70 war, 69 mage, 70 druid. Warrior was a good tank so I was able to open up and overnuke Ruul to the max. The druid just healed, so it was close. Eventually the druid went oom, tank died then druid, then Ruul came at me (mage) with 2% health and I finished him. Being oom myself and evoc on cooldown, the dragon squished me. We all rez and go back to loot Ruul … done. After the wipe, the dragon despawned. Maybe not the most elegant way to do this, but it worked and none of us had high-end raid gear. To do this with no deaths, a 5 man is probably the way to go.
Did this with 70 hunter, 68 holy priest and 70 paladin, me 69 Feral druid.
Fight has two phases. First you need to kill Ruul witch dualwields something that looks like Thunderfury. He does deacent damage and has a lot of hp. Since we lacked damage because of two healing me, and only hunter and me did dps it took us time to get him down.
Didnt notice any special attacks or something from him. Straight forward realy.
When the bloodelf dies you have to deal with the dragon pet.
Its weak compared to Ruul. Died pretty quick.
70 priest and warrior, easy if the priest is worth a crap.
This quest is not soloable, period. He’s immune to all cc including slowing effects. He’ll just stomp you.
I have to admit, I gave it a shot anyway. Sure enough, he is very, very immune 😉

Did this with 2 Mages, a Lock, and a Shammy-tank. No problem.
Guys read this… two mages and a lock and a SHAMMY tank? no healer yea and pigs fly
congratz.. you 4 manned a 3 man…. “No problem”… ROFL ..
