Adventure Guide

What Commander Vo'jak lacks in strategic brilliance, he makes up for with raw ferocity. His devastating strikes were crucial to the mantid's exploitation of their insidious bridge, allowing them to infiltrate the island. Yet devising battle plans is for the mantid general; Vo'jak craves only blood.

Spells and Abilities

The Escaped Prisoners

The mantid captured these three Pandaren during the initial attack on Niuzao Temple, but the prisoners were able to break free of their bindings and fight back. Now they stand ready to do whatever it takes to end the siege.

  • Inv misc slime 02.png  Caustic Tar Important Magic Effect — Escaped prisoners, Li and Lo Chu, will position and prepare mantid tar kegs for use in the battle.

The Caustic Tar also removes any effect from the target that increases movement or attack speed.

Commander Vo'jak's enters the battle as his forces near defeat at the hands of the players.
