For Erunak's half of the fight, see Erunak Stonespeaker.

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]

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

Tactics Summary

  • Normal:After Erunak has been freed Ghur'sha will Enslave a party member. Concentrate on bringing this player down to 50% health. Ghur'sha will then set that person free. Stay out of the green gas. When Unrelenting Agony is used, break line of sight; tank is unavoidable damage, so be prepared to heal. [Spellsteal] can be used against Absorb Magic, as well as [Tranquilizing Shot] and [Purge].
  • Heroic:If a player is not freed from Enslavement by the end of the spell, the player dies immediately.
