  • Spell nature cyclone.png  Cyclone Shield Important — Grand Vizier Ertan surrounds herself with 8 cyclones at the beginning of the fight. These cyclones rotate slowly around her in a circle. Periodically Ertan calls the cyclones close to her, then after a few seconds the cyclones return to their regular orbit.Players that touch a cyclone are dealt 9500 to 10500 Nature damage and have their movement, attack, and casting speed reduced by 60% for 8 sec.
  • Spell nature lightningoverload.png  Storm's Edge — Players that stand outside the circle of cyclones are dealt 4533 to 6132 Nature damage every second. When her cyclones are called back to her, players that stand within 5 yards of Ertan are knocked away.
  • Spell nature lightning.png  Lightning Bolt — Grand Vizier Ertan blasts her current enemy target with lightning, inflicting 8500 to 11500 Nature damage.
  • Spell nature unrelentingstorm.png  Summon Tempest Heroic Difficulty — Grand Vizier Ertan periodically calls a Lurking Tempest to join the fight. They appear on the edge of the Ertan's circular platform.
    • Lurking Tempest — The Lurking Tempests will only attack players if no one is looking at them.
      • Spell nature lightning.png  Lightning Bolt — The Lurking Tempest blasts its current enemy target with lightning, inflicting 6562 to 8437 Nature damage.


  • When she is pulled, a ring of whirlwinds appear centered on her and with a radius of about 30 yards. Standing in the whirlwinds will cause damage, so all player should get inside of it.
  • About every 40 seconds, the ring retracts to cover the boss. The whirlwinds will still hit you even if you run outside of them.
  • It is possible to avoid the whirlwind damage and debuff if you stack directly underneath the Boss.

Heroic Mode

  • The number of whirlwinds surrounding her are increased.
  • While the whirlwinds shield her she will fire bolts of lightning at the group.
  • When she draws the whirlwinds in she will also summon Lurking Tempests. As long as each member of the group is facing a different section of the platform the adds will not be an issue.
