Blood Priests are a type of trash mob found in Zul'Gurub.
- Blood Funnel: Can heal a friendly target for 5000hp/sec while doing 500hp/sec damage to themselves. This effects characters that are outside melee range.
- Drain Life: Drains 300hp/sec from an enemy target and heals the Blood Priest by 6000hp/sec. Both abilities are channeled.
1) All members of raid must move to within melee range of the Blood Priest. Use stuns to interrupt heals and DPS them down. (This method does not work very well unless your raid DPS is very high)
2) Use a priest to Mind Control the Blood Priest use Blood Funnel on the Main Tank. When Mind Control breaks, recast again. Blood Priest can do little damage to you while casting Mind Control. Kill the Blood Priest last by draining his life to 1%, releasing and having a rogue backstab him. If Mind Control is mastered, you can take 2 or 3 groups of mobs before Hakkar and survive the battle easy, just by healing your Main Tank with the Blood Priest. Note that a Shadow Priest with talent points in Shadow Focus makes chain Mind Control easier.
