For Ghur'sha's half of the fight, see Mindbender Ghur'sha.

After his valiant effort at the Abyssal Breach, Earthen Ring shaman Erunak Stonespeaker was abducted by naga forces and enslaved by Mindbender Ghur'sha. It is feared that this parasitic aberration has taken full control over Erunak's mind, body, and devastating shamanistic abilities.[1]

Erunak Stonespeaker is the third boss of the Throne of the Tides instance, part of a dual-boss encounter, as he is controlled Mindbender Ghur'sha. The two can be found within the Deep Blue Observatory[67.2, 20.4]
