The Fall of Shai Hu
87 (Requires 87)
- Shai Hu slain
I can hear the voice of the Mere - it has been purified.
But, this chapter in my people's history will never be closed - not until we defeat Shai Hu.
He has retreated to the central island in the Mere, corrupting our holiest of sites.
Beware - he is strong. But, after all we have done, I am confident we will be stronger.
(Shai Hu: "The corrupter of the Inkgill Jinyu. He must die if they are to be redeemed.")
Thank you, <name>. You have assured that this corruption will not spread, and that my people - those who have not been corrupted - will be able to live on and found a new village.
Our history will live on. You have done more for us than we ever could have hoped.
Thank you, friend.
- Waterspeaker Gorai yells: My people, here <he/she> is! The one who gave the Inkgill new life, <name>!
- Inkgill Refugee yells: All hail, <name>!
- Waterspeaker Gorai says: Thank you again, friend. We will remember your name in our people's history.
- 161000 XP
Shai Hu is in the middle of the island, but the Explosive Hatred on the outside edge of the island respawn nearly instantly. Pull one, run through it, then stop at the stone ring surrounding Shai Hu, finish it off, then aggro the named when ready:
- Shai Hu yells: YOUR RAGE! I FEED ON YOUR RAGE!
Shai Hu is a level 87 elite jinyu with 516,000 health and the following abilities:
- Sha Eruption 45 yd range — Summons latent Sha energies from the ground, dealing Shadow damage and knocking enemies high into the air. 5 sec cast. Triggers...
- Sha Eruption — Sha energy erupts beneath the target, dealing Shadodw damage and knocking them high into the air. 1 sec cast. Hits for 40,000 Shadow. Cast by the void zone.
- Bathed in Rage — Shai Hu is shielded by Sha-Tainted water and immune to damage. The release of an Explosive Hatred's energy removes the shield. Instant.
Littering the area are Explosive Hatreds, level 87 sha with 85,994 health and the following ability:
- Exploding Hatred 10 yd range — Unleashes dark energy, inflicting Shadow damage to all enemies within 8 yards. Instant.
Shai Hu can be damaged normally, up until he pops an immunity shield at 50% health.
- Shai Hu yells: YOUR FEEBLE ATTACKS MEAN NOTHING!
- Waterspeaker Gorai says: The death of an Explosive Hatred should destroy his shield! Quickly!
Kill one to pop the shield:
- Shai Hu yells: WHAT IS THIS!? THEIR RAGE... IT BURNS ME...
- Shai Hu yells: NO! IT CANNOT BE! YOU CANNOT STOP ME!
- Shai Hu says: I... feel something. Is it... peace?
- Waterspeaker Gorai yells: He is dead! You have done it!
- Waterspeaker Gorai says: Friend, I will return to the refugees. Meet us there, so we can thank you properly.
- Patch 5.0.4 (2012-08-28): Added.
