Hell's Precipice


Undead Prince Rurik is the animated corpse of Prince Rurik. The evil Lich Lord was somehow able to locate and animate Prince Rurik's body after he was killed in the Northern Shiverpeaks. When players try to stop the Lich Lord and destroy him in the Hell's Precipice mission, they will have to fight Undead Prince Rurik.

The Undead Prince, while conscious of who the players are and the mockery that the Lich Lord made of him, is unable to disobey, as he is, like all undead, bound to the will of the one animating his corpse.

Items dropped


  • Contrary to the fact that he is obviously Undead in the story, he does not take double damage from Holy damage. It has now been confirmed that the "of Deathbane" weapon upgrade does an extra 20% damage to him.
  • Because of the scripting for the cutscene, even if none of the players are Prophecies characters, and have never done the Frost Gate or earlier missions, Rurik will still "recognize" the players.
Bug Bug! Sometimes Rurik's body will disappear after killing him, preventing players from capturing his Elite Skill.
