Xazkruvrixis ore was first seen at the #PlayApartTogether silver auction in May 2020. The rare metal can only be held safely by adventurers at level 100; Merchant Dett claims anyone below that level will die. The ore is used to create melee weapons with an innate +25 base enchantment and a death flare. When the wielder both has Death's Sting and kills a creature over level 100, the wielder has a chance for their sting to be reduced.

The flaring properties of the material reside in the Category B slot. The metal is enchantable by the player Enchant (925) system.
