Maleki the Pallid is a mini-boss in Stratholme. Maleki is a mortal human adept at Frost and Shadow magic.

Attacks and abilities


Maleki the Pallid is the easiest of the three Ziggurat bosses. He's a caster, so he dies pretty quickly. He’ll cast Frost Bolt and Frost Nova throughout the fight, but neither are very powerful. He casts a very nasty life drain at the primary aggro target on occasion though, this needs to be healed through or interrupted. The aim is to kill him and then destroy the Ash'ari crystal.
