Rakanishu, Lord of the Fallen is a particularly brutal Fallen, feared and perhaps even respected among his own kind.[1] Driving his minions into a frenzy, Fallen could often be heard screaming his names as they rushed headlong into their deaths.[2]

In-gameEdit

Diablo IIEdit

Bonuses:

Rakanishu is a Super Unique Carver found in the Stony Field next to the Cairn Stones that activate the portal to Tristram during the Search for Cain quest. When attacking Rakanishu, melee heroes should be cautious of his Lightning Enchanted status, which causes Charged Bolt to emanate from him when struck. Rapid attacks on Rakanishu will result in an equally rapid release of charged bolts, which are especially deadly on higher difficulty levels. Rakanishu is the first of the Lightning Enchanted bosses in Diablo II, but enemies with this status appear often enough to make lightning resistance necessary.

In Normal difficulty, the Lightning damage done is 3-6. This increased to 21-33 in Nightmare and 53-81 in Hell. In addition, his Attack 1 has Cold Damage in Nightmare and Hell. In Nightmare there is a 10% chance of adding 4-6 cold damage with a chill of six seconds and in Hell there is a 20% chance of adding 12-16 Cold damage with an eight second chill.

He will appear with eight Minions in Normal, nine Minions in Nightmare and ten Minions in Hell.

Diablo IIIEdit

The Avatar of Rakanishu in Diablo III, moments before death

Rakanishu makes an appearance in Diablo III's second act: the Shrine of Rakanishu appears in the Dahlgur Oasis. The Nephalem must interrupt a ritual involving five standing stones (likely a reference to the Cairn Stones), and then battle the Avatar of Rakanishu. On normal difficulty, the Avatar will drop Rakanishu's Blade, which must be used against Bashiok to gain the Bashanishu achievement.
