'''C'Thun''' (pronounced "Kah-Thoon" or "Kathune") is the final boss in the [[Temple of Ahn'Qiraj]]. Until the release of the original [[Naxxramas]] and later ''[[The Burning Crusade]]'', C'Thun was considered the most difficult raid boss in the game.

In its first inception, C'Thun was considered to be unbeatable with the current level of gear. However, following a number of hot fixes, phase two was made considerably more controllable, and the first kills were registered in a matter of hours following one such hot fix.

Begins immediately upon bringing the Eye of C'Thun to 0%. If no tentacle is alive, players are taken out of combat and are encouraged to drink during the transition. During this phase, C'thun has a shield which reduces all damage taken by 99%. In order to bring the shield down and damage it, players must engage the stomach from inside (see details below).

During the weakened phase, C'Thun doesn't spawn any more tentacles. 10 seconds after the weakened phase ends, C'Thun spawns a Giant Claw Tentacle. You may want to synchronize the death of the Flesh Tentacles on the stomach with the death of a Giant Claw on the surface, so you don't have a couple of Giant Claws alive at the end of the weakened phase.

At level 80, the C'thun fight becomes much simpler. During the 1st phase (with a group of around 10, although he has been defeated by two players, see videos below) have 1 or 2 people designated to kill the tentacle spawns, and have the rest of the raid DPS C'thun. Be sure that when he Dark Glares that you also don't stand directly behind the glare as, due to a broken mechanic, you might die from the spell as if you were in front of the boss.
At level 110, the C'thun fight becomes much more simple and is easily solod. 1st phase, just burn C'thun, kill any tenticles during transition. If you are fast enough you will be able to kill C'thun before anything else happens.
 
   
For phase 2, run around the chamber and kill tentacle spawns. When 2 manning the boss, make sure to designate which player is killing which tentacle in the stomach. ONLY KILL ONE at a time, then exit the stomach. Let the next player kill the other tentacle to weaken C'thun. It should only take 2 weakened phases in order to down the Old God. Additionally, staying in the stomach room for too long WILL kill a level 85. DPS the Flesh Tentacles down and GET OUT. Again, make sure to stand directly in the center of the center platform.
+
For phase 2, have everyone in the raid run around the chamber killing tentacle spawns. Have your tank pick up the Giant Claw/Eye Tentacle when they spawns and the raid burn them down quickly. When a raid member is eaten, unless they are a healer or tank, have them kill the flesh tentacles and come back to the raid. C'thun only has about 900k HP during phase 2, so it should only take 2 weakened phases in order to down the Old God. Additionally, staying in the stomach room for too long WILL kill a level 80. DPS the Flesh Tentacles down and GET OUT. Again, make sure to stand directly in the center of the center platform.
   
 
After you have killed him, be sure to turn in the Eye of C'thun at the NPC that is directly behind you, down the hallway to the right exiting the chamber, for easy reputation and some epics that very few people in the game will have.
