Commander Kolurg is a boss located in the Hall of Stasis in The Nexus. He is only available in Heroic mode. While the fight is a fairly simple tank and spank, he does cast Whirlwind quite often and non-plate melee need to get away without being hit, as they will be basically one-shotted. The range of Whirlwind seems quite wide and hits for over 20K on leather.

This fight is a carbon copy of the boss encountered by Horde players, Commander Stoutbeard, with the obvious exception that he isn't a dwarf.

Commander Kolurg is voiced by Michael McConnohie.


Commander Kolurg

  • Whirlwind - Inflicts around 12-16k damage on a plate wearer and up to 20K on leather. Goes for about 4 spins.
  • Frightening Shout - AOE Fears people for around 6 seconds.
  • Immune to Blind, Sap, but NOT immune to Dismantle.
  • Melee Swings for ~6k on plate.

Horde Cleric

  • Shadow Word: Death for ~4k
  • Heals Commander Kolurg.


Avoid his whirlwind at all costs. He also comes with two priest healers who respawn on wipes.

The strategy is mainly tank and spank and to make sure that you pull him far back enough that fear wont attract more enemies. Melee should watch out for whirlwind by standing at max melee range and moving away once you see the animation and tank should keep boss far away from any casters. Depending on the group depends on the order of killing the extra priests.
