Night-gazer Khighorahk is a large, magic-based Dungeoneering boss (a Stalker to be precise) which may be encountered on floors 26 through 29 of Daemonheim. There are four Pillars of Light around the room. It is not necessary to light all four pillars to damage it, but players deal more damage when more burners are lit. The pillars go out occasionally (very often if Night-gazer uses the special attack, and more often as more players are in the team), so it is beneficial to have a teammate standing next to each pillar during the fight. However, standing near a pillar of light (2 spaces or less away) when it goes out will cause the player to take unblockable damage. This boss battle is slightly more difficult for a solo player because the player will have to constantly run around the room lighting the pillars. However, since the boss is not particularly powerful, the player may choose to re-light only a single pillar at the cost of making the battle last much longer.

There are two stages in this boss battle. When the night-gazer dies the first time, it will respawn and players will have to kill it a second time to finally defeat it. However, in this second stage, the Night-gazer will have a lower combat level and the pillars will remain lit for the duration of the fight. This form is mobile; the first is not. It will also look the same except for the fact that some of its eyes will be missing with cord-like threads hanging off the sockets.

Night-gazer attacks primarily with magic. Its magic attacks are surprisingly weak, even against a player wearing a full set of melee armour. Additionally, it uses a ranged attack of which it squirts some of its "eye goo" at you. This attack is far more powerful than its magic attack, and can hit through Protect from Missiles. Night-gazer occasionally uses an attack where it jumps up, and spins around. This has a chance of draining run energy by 30 percent. This attack also fires its ranged attack at all players. The Night-gazer also has a powerful attack where it jumps into the air with a bluish sphere around it. This must be avoided by quickly running away because it will deal upwards of 5000 life points to any player who is still standing next to it when it lands. However, this powerful move is only triggered if a player is in melee range to the Night-gazer (does not necessarily need to melee it), and it will use it often if a player stands in its melee range, making it less efficient using melee to kill it. Resonance will not heal from this attack. If all players range or mage the boss, then it will not use this attack. In its second form, it gains the ability to stun the player, making it difficult to avoid the special attack unless Freedom is activated.

As revealed in the Stalker notes, Khighorahk had appeared once in the notes' writer's private room and had created a nest to breed. Bilrach then decided to use it as a guard in the dark room.

A player with a sufficiently high prayer level can kill the night gazer with little food.

There is currently a glitch where it does not glow prior to doing the special attack.

  • The extension on Khighorahk's left appears to be the optic nerve of a Stalker spawn described in Stalker Notes 2.
  • Before the Evolution of Combat, Night-gazer Khighorahk was one of the lowest levelled monsters that could deal a massive amount of damage onto players. Even being the lowest combat level (38 was the lowest before EoC), it could still deal up to 740 damage with the special attack, and only bosses like Nex could surpass that amount of damage.
  • The Seeker of Truth from the quest Salt in the Wound is identical to the Night-gazer, implying that a stalker's physical appearance may be replicated.
  • The examine text seems to be a reference to The Tell-tale Heart, a short story by the famous American literature writer Edgar Allan Poe.
  • It is possible for this boss to move out of its spot, but will be bound to the spot it moved to only during the first phase.
  • It makes the same sound effects as the other Stalkers (with the exception of Plane-freezer Lakhrahnaz) when dying and being dealt damage.
  • If you defeat the first form of Night-Gazer Khighorahk with Retribution, you would still receive the Double KO title.
