Anrakyr had come to the Tomb World of Carnac expecting to reawaken it to his cause, only to find it infested with Eldar Exodites. Realizing the forces at his immediate disposal were outmatched, Anrakyr commissioned aid from Mandragora, Gidrim, Trakonn, and forces from Solemnace led by Trazyn the Infinite himself. However by this point, the Eldar Craftworld Alaitoc had arrived to reinforce the Exodites under Farseer Starbane, who sought revenge the Necrons for his earlier humiliation at the hands of Imotekh the Stormlord.
The Eldar first attempted to stall the Necrons with hit-and-run attacks under the command of the Ranger Illic Nightspear and strike at Anrakyr and his closest allies, but Anrakyr was able to avoid the assassination attempt due to information provided by Orikan the Diviner and the squad of rangers was ambushed by Deathmarks.
After several inconclusive battles on Carnac's plains, Anrakyr marched on the World Spirit shrine and thus forced the Eldar into a direct confrontation. Though the two sides were well-matched in the ensuing bloodbath, the Necrons' hardiness countered the precise strikes of the Eldar and Carnac's tomb suddenly awakened, providing Anrakyr with the flood of reinforcements he needed to finally emerge victorious. The Eldar retreated, and Anrakyr allowed Trazyn to take the planet's World Shrine as a spoil of war.
