Enter High Keep at -314, 167, -584 on Karak Peak in Vesspyr Isles.

NOTE: There is a 365% CC Debuff (Goblin Trickery) so you will need VERY good pre-ToV armor or at least the quested ToV armor/jewelry. Also, even the trash mobs have millions of HP's (at least on Beta on 11/01/13)

Named mobs: Raknag -60, -76, 87

  • Kill all the trash (if you click the book at -109.03, -77.78, 43.89 it will topple the books and spawn about 10 unbound tomes, probably quicker to just skip that.)
  • Kill Raknag:
    • He will cast "circle" spells that form red, gold and blue circles on the ground. Just move out of them to avoid damage
    • Stand near the edge of a circle as he casts a second one to cause them to combine into a new colored circle. Combine this with a third cast and all circles will be removed.
  • If you are on the quest Tears of Veeshan: Shattered Dreams, go back to where you found him and collect his spirit by clicking on it for the quest update
