5 Tarthess c
Tarthess, Descendant of the Ardanocs
is a unique Barbed Lurker that can be found in the Occupied Ruins in Diablo III. It spawns only for the Resurrection event, where it tries to revive its demonic master.

In combat, it has the Poison Enchnanted and Fast affixes, the former being very deadly because the fight takes place on a very narrow bridge.

Killing Tarthess is required to complete the event, but the Resplendent Chest may be opened without killing it.
