<The Storm Lord>
Cloud serpent (Beast)
Deceased (lore), Killable (WoW)
Nalak is a cloud serpent world boss found on the Isle of Thunder on Pandaria. Nalak was the thundering cobalt cloud serpent, allegedly a demigod, that served the Thunder King as guardian of the entrance to the Throne of Thunder. After being revived by Shan Bu, he was slain by adventurers before they entered the Thunder King's palace.

The rise of the Thunder King is accompanied by the emergence of frightful new creatures too willful to dwell inside a dungeon. Successfully dominating Lei Shen’s isle unearths Nalak, the Storm Lord, near the Throne of Thunder.
When Lei Shen discovered a rare clutch of thundering cloud serpents, he was awed, and set to subjugating them. The largest hatchling fiercely resisted, and when Lei Shen visited the handling pens, he laughed mightily at the charred mogu that lined the walls. He took the hatchling for his own, and for its obedience, granted it power over the storms and the sky. For thousands of years following the death of the Thunder King, Nalak has guarded the walls of his hidden citadel, awaiting his return.
- Arc Nova — A pulse of electric energy inflicts 350000 Nature damage to players within 35 yards and knocks them back.
- Lightning Tether — Nalak tethers several players to him, inflicting 10000 Nature damage every 1 sec. and an additional 20000 Nature damage if they are greater than 30 yards from Nalak. Lasts 15 sec.
- Static Shield — Jolts of power surrounding Nalak inflict 20000 Nature damage every 1 sec. to a random player.
- Stormcloud — Nalak places storm clouds above several players, which inflict 50000 Nature damage every 3 sec. to all players within 10 yards for 30 sec.
Nalak only requires one tank. Those afflicted with Lightning Tether will take more damage the further they are away from Nalak and should move closer to the boss to avoid large amounts of damage. Static Shield will periodically hurt the DPS or tank and must be healed through. When the boss afflicts players with Stormcloud, any players around them will receive damage from the lightning. The raid should be spread out to minimize damage from Stormcloud. Arc Nova is Nalak's strongest move and will kill anyone in close proximity. The graphic for the spell is an easily noticeable circle of lightning underneath Nalak and players should have ample time to get away.
