Rigwald, the Wolven King is a boss residing in Lair of the Wolven King which can be entered by sacrificing five tier 3 talismans.


Thane Rigwald, the Wolven King, led the Ezomytes during the Purity Rebellion. To ensure the ongoing freedom of his people, he recovered the Talismans of the First Ones and called upon those ancient Ezomyte gods to help him. It was a First One called the Greatwolf who answered, and it soon became apparent that the Wolven King had bitten off more than he could chew.[1]

Inscriptions alongside the stone altars serve as Rigwald's memoirs.


To reach Lair of the Wolven King, the player needs to sacrifice five tier 3 talismans to a Stone Altar. This will open a portal to the area where Rigwald is waiting.

The level of the map is dependent on the item levels of the sacrificed talismans, but will be a minimum of 60.
