The Wind of Destruction, or Ritual of Demise, is the ritual by the Elder or Eldress of Iska to summon the Root of All Existence that seeks to rebalance Altago through destruction. The ritual itself has several phases which in particular requires the sacrifice of many living souls. With the sufficient amount of souls collected, the Well of Souls will open and bring forth Rul-Ende on the ritual's completion. The ritual can be interrupted should the Iskan leader die.
This ritual has been initiated and completed several times throughout Altago's existence, each time with the land being recreated from anew. The only, and last, time the ritual has been stop was by Adol who defeated Rul-Ende before the timeless being could bring about total destruction.
