We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Rakanishu (Diablo II)

From Diablo Wiki
(Redirected from Rakanishu)
Jump to: navigation, search

Rakanishu always spawns next to the Cairn Stones that are used to activate the portal to Tristram during The Search for Cain quest.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

When attacking Rakanishu, melee heroes need to be careful because his Lightning Enchanted status causes several Charged Bolts to radiate out from him each time he is damaged. Very quick attacks on Rakanishu will result in an equally quick death if you do not watch yourself carefully, especially on the higher difficulty levels. Rakanishu is the first of the Lightning Enchanted bosses in Diablo II.

Additional Information[edit | edit source]


  • Normal: 8

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Fallen monsters and all of their variants can often be heard exclaiming "Rakanishu" before attacking, implying that they have great respect for and answer to him.
