Soulbinder Nyami



Soulbinder Nyami is the second boss of Auchindoun. After spending much time subverting the Exarch Council from within, Nyami openly betrays the Auchenai, delivering the Heart of Auchindoun to her master Teron'gor and attempts to stop the adventurers from reaching her master. Her abilities are similar to that of a Shadow-speced priest.


Adventure Guide

Nyami is a draenei priestess, entrusted as a soultender with access to the holiest grounds within Auchindoun. However, her true loyalties lie with the Shadow Council, and she plots to bring down the barrier that protects the mausoleum from invaders.


Soulbinder Nyami twists the spirits of fallen Auchindoun partisans into weapons of her own will. Whilst combating these spirits, players should be aware of her deadly torus-shaped spell, Soul Vessel.

Soulbinder Nyami mostly hits the tank with [Mind Spike] and a dispellable [Shadow Word: Pain]. Her Soul Vessel ability channels a swarm of souls that do massive damage, in addition to creating a small safe zone. The safe zone appears as a blue spot on the ground with an arrow pointing over it. This ability is similar to Erudax's Shadow Gale.

She will also summon Torn Spirits. In Normal mode, the adds should be ignored and the party should focus on finishing off the boss. In Heroic, the adds are more powerful and are more likely to be summoned sooner. Abilities to watch out for are the Spiteful Arbiter's Arbiter's Hammer which will stun players (this spell should be interrupted), and the Twisted Magus' Arcane Bomb which players should stay away from as it does damage to all enemies within 5 yards when it detonates. If the party is geared enough, they may also choose to ignore the adds and burn Nyami as fast as possible.
