Is that unique correct? I think Sessk, Woe Spreader drops it... Confirm? Shamayim Araboth ~ Ayy 02:00, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

They can both drop it. Fall 02:01, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
Fab, I'll update the Woe Spreader page then. Shamayim Araboth ~ Ayy 02:05, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) yeah, this boss is seemingly a copypaste of Sessk, just like Waeng is likely one of Lou, of the Knives. (except for the fact that this one can also drop a quest item) —ZerphatalkThe Improver 02:06, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

Potential trivia[edit]

"The quest item, "Head of Xiriss Stickleback," is quite possibly a reference to the special item, "Head of Sss-Thsss" from the 1988 PC game, Exile I: Escape From The Pit"(Originally added on 22:55, 8 April 2011 by User:Angel Serrenity

I've moved the potential trivia note to the talk page because the meme, bring me the head of probably goes back farther than 1988. To name just two potential sources: Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (movie) and Salome's dancing to obtain the head of John the Baptist.
There's no parallels between the PC game and the quest/quest dialogue to suggest more than a coincidence of Esses and Snakes. (Or, at least, I didn't see any other similarities after reviewing the Wikipedia article and a walkthrough.)  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 00:15, 9 April 2011 (UTC)
