While we're here, we should do one more thing.

The Sra'thik Swarmlord is responsible for directing the mantid forces from the air. If we leave it alive, it's going to cause trouble for the garrison.

So we're not going to leave it alive. Let's take it out, <name>.


You will receive: 19g 84s 50c 2 Lesser Charm of Good Fortune


We need to take down the Swarmlord!


I heard you did a little... extra credit while you were out there. Good work, friend.

Come back another day - I'm sure we'll have some more work for you.



After turning in the previous four, this quest automatically accepts. Fly to the northwest side of the island, Ikz'ka Ridge. Make sure there aren't any patrolling elites reporting to it, then aggro the swarmlord and pull it behind the house. A level 90 elite mantid with 2,757,000 health, the swarmlord has the following abilities:

  • Blinding Speed — Increases damage and move speed by 20%. Stacks. Instant.
  • Empower Blades — Increases damage dealt by 100% and slows movement speed by 70% for 8 sec. Instant. Announced by a boss emote:
    • Sra'thik Swarmlord casts [Empower Blades] Run!

Flee when he does the Empower Blades move, but otherwise move quickly as Blinding Speed will stack as far as it needs to.
