When the Twilight's Hammer cult arrived, its followers roused and imprisoned one of the last peaceful creatures living in Elune's temple. The cult delighted in tormenting the giant turtle for years, flaying its mind and body until it succumbed to madness. Naming the beast Ghamoo-Ra, the cultists attempt to control its savagery in order to protect their lair.
Ghamoo-ra lives on the small island in the second cavern of the instance. He roams around the center of the landmass and is surrounded by several other turtles. The additional turtles are neutral, and Ghamoo-ra can be engaged without disturbing these other beasts.
The fight with Ghamoo-ra is fairly straightforward, although due to Ghamoo-ra's high armor value the encounter can last a fair amount of time if your group is melee heavy or generally low on DPS. He only casts Trample, which is an AoE physical damage spell. It can be blocked.
Objective ofNote: These quests are no longer associated with this particular mob/NPC/item.
- Hunters will find that it is possible to tame Ghamoo-ra. Prior to Patch 3.0.2 he was one of two low level instance turtles who knew the turtle-specific skill (Level 1) (and the general skill (Level 4)).
- Before Warlords of Draenor, Ghamoo-Ra had a mostly unique model (shared with Tortolla who wasn't tamable) has been replaced with a dragon turtle from Mists of Pandaria. But <Son of Ghamoo-Ra> located behind the Ghamoo-Ra still uses the mostly unique model.
- Ghamoo-ra may be named after the film turtle-monster, Gamera.
