Commander Zhalk Dialogue Options

Players can't talk to Commander Zhalk, he is fighting a Mind Flayer when first found and won't bother with the player until it manages to kill it. Although players can avoid Commander Zhalk and not fight it, if you have a Fighter or plan to have Lae'zel in your party, he drops a powerful Greatsword called Everburn Blade that makes the confrontation worthwhile.

Note that if the Mind Flayer facing him is killed, Commander Zhalk will focus his attention on your party.

Commander Zhalk Notes & Tips

  • As a level 1 character, it's very difficult to defeat him. However, you can use the explosive you gathered on Nautiloid to deal extra damage. Once he's dead, the mind flayer will turn hostile, and more demons will appear and join the fight.
