Xaril the Poisoned Mind was one of the Klaxxi paragons. He was an expert alchemist who specialized in using poisons and explosive compounds. He was awakened by the Wakener to combat the sha threat. Along with the rest of the Klaxxi, he later sided with Garrosh Hellscream, who had obtained the Heart of Y'Shaarj, against the Alliance. He fought in the Underhold during the Siege of Orgrimmar, where his brethren and him were eventually killed.


Xaril originally served Grand Empress Shek'zeer when she was young alongside Blade Lord Ta'yak. Because of his brilliance in alchemy, he was chosen to be a paragon, encased in Amber. However, he decided to use his hibernation take a gamble with his own life to achieve something no other mantid ever could. Just prior to his encasement, he injected himself with a dozen lethal poisons. The life-giving properties of the amber prevented him from dying and allowed him to become immune to the toxins. When he emerged many years later, he claimed that he could handle any poison he desired without fear and proclaimed his own body to be his masterpiece.[1]

Thanking the Achievement faction klaxxi [Wakener], he had them gather natural ingredients from all over the Venomous Ledge to create an arsenal of poisonous and explosive weapons to use against the newly corrupted empress' armies.[2] He continued his service to the Klaxxi, aiding in in the Grand Empress Shek'zeer's downfall.

After Garrosh Hellscream unearthed the heart of Y'Shaarj, Xaril joined his brothers in heeding the whispers of their dead god and followed Garrosh during the Siege of Orgrimmar. He was eventually slain, mourning that he never found an alchemical way to stop death.

Xaril the Poisoned Mind

Xaril the Poisoned Mind


  • There are many wonderful poisons, Wakener. Some can boil you alive. Some will eat your flesh. Some burst you open from the inside.
So many wonderful varieties.
  • Have you ever tried drinking poison, Wakener? You must start with something very mild, only a few drops at first.
You will likely become violently ill. Perhaps you will even lose an antennae or two.
But do it long enough, and you will become quite used to it.
  • I was once the Empress Shek'zeer's most prized royal alchemist, peerless, and above all others.
  • Pah! I remember when Un'sok was still a drone, afraid to mix his first toxin. I dare him to face me alone. Then we shall see whose alchemy is supreme.


Conversation with Hisek the Swarmkeeper
Xaril the Poisoned Mind says: How does it feel to go rogue a second time, swarmkeeper? Your empress was also gripped by paranoia, was she not?
Hisek the Swarmkeeper says: Grand Empress Zek'hara masked her true intentions behind the guise of matronly worry. She claimed her overbearing ways were necessary to protect us.
Hisek the Swarmkeeper says: When she tried to forbid the swarm, it was to prevent, as she put it, "a senseless loss of life."
Hisek the Swarmkeeper says: In reality, she was obsessed with control. She aspired to stay in power long past her time, and was willing to sacrifice our eternal cycle to achieve that. We had no choice but to end her.
Hisek the Swarmkeeper says: How does it feel? I have no regrets, if that is what you are asking. I am honored to serve the will of the Klaxxi.
Hisek the Swarmkeeper says: And having seen what Grand Empress Shek'zeer is doing to our land... I need no convincing.
Xaril the Poisoned Mind says: Of course.
Xaril the Poisoned Mind says: I served Shek'zeer for a time, you know. Before I was preserved. Her madness is nothing so rational as ambition.
Xaril the Poisoned Mind says: She trusts no one. Paranoia gnaws at her mind. She is driven by fear unrelenting.
Klaxxi enhancement
I have coated your weapons with a special serum. Use it to inject your enemies. Too many injections, and their systems will overload.
