Kai'ju Gahz'rilla is a level 80 Elemental Unrest version of the boss from Zul'Farrak.

Abilities

She has four main abilities:

  • Spell frost glacier.png  Ice Spikes 45 yd range — Ice spikes pierce the floor and then rise up, dealing 3813 to 4187 Frost damage and knocking up enemy targets within 3 yards.
  • Spell frost frostbolt02.png  Icicle Breath — Inflicts Frost damage to enemies in front of the caster, reducing their movement speed for 10 sec. 1.5 sec cast
  • Spell frost glacier.png  Freeze Solid 30 yd range — Stuns an enemy and inflicts Frost damage every 3 sec. for 10 sec. 2.5 sec cast
  • Spell frost frost.png  Gahz'rilla Glacier — You become encased in a block of ice, protecting you from all physical attacks and spells for 5 sec, and recover most of your hit points, but during that time you cannot attack, move or cast spells. 3 sec cast (5 min cooldown)

Strategy

There are three groups of trash before this boss, each containing three mobs. One contains a named mob. These should pose no problems to you as a group.

She is the most technical of the four mini-bosses in the Cataclysm pre-event.

  • Whenever she starts to cast Freeze Solid the tank should move to the right or left to avoid being frozen. In case it still happens, this effect can be dispelled.
  • At about 400k (30%) she casts Gahz'rilla Glacier on herself. This ability can and should be interrupted! Otherwise she heals herself up to about 90%.
