Ner'zhul is the final boss of the Shadowmoon Burial Grounds. Following his defeat during A [92] Darkness Falls, the Shadowmoon chieftain uses what power he retrained from the Dark Star to make his last stand in the Edge of Reality.

Adventure Guide

Ner'zhul, chieftain and elder shaman of the Shadowmoon clan, sacrificed the heart and soul of his tribe in an attempt to join the Iron Horde. He has now retreated to his clan's ancient burial grounds as he ventures ever further along a dark path, embracing the power of the Void and the necromantic arts.

Overview

Ner'zhul unleashes the void upon his foes, summoning legions of shadowy minions to sweep death across the battlefield.

Abilities

  • Spell shadow deathsembrace.png  Malevolence — Ner'zhul casts a shadow of void energy, inflicting 78000 to 82000 Shadow damage to all enemies in a line in front of him. Afflicted players will have their damage reduced by 50%.
  • Spell shadow mindtwisting.png  Omen of Death — Ner'zhul falls into a trance, showing players a vision of their own death. Void energy rips through the sky, inflicting up to 29250 to 30750 Shadow damage, based on proximity to the effect.
  • Spell shadow chilltouch.png  Ritual of Bones Deadly Important — Ner'zhul summons an army of shadow and death which marches across his platform, eradicating all life in its path. Tendrils of void bind the ritual bones together, inflicting 29250 to 30750 Shadow damage per second to those who cross their threshold.

Strategy

In addition to melee attacks, Ner'zhul tries to cast his Malevolence attack on the tank, a short-range cone-shaped spell in front of him. Dodge by quickly moving to the side. Omen of Death fires lasers from the sky with damage the immediate area around it.

His most dangerous ability is Ritual of Bones. This ability summons skeletons similar to the ghouls summoned by the Echo of Sylvanas in the End Time. The party should mark one skeleton and dps it as fast as they can to avoid the oncoming dark clouds which do massive damage. The tank should take extra care to not have Ner'zhul's Malevolence hit the rest of the party due to the small space the dark clouds leave you to move around and position. Space can be a greater issue if an Omen of Death laser comes down on the safe spot.
