Overlord Wyrmthalak is the overlord and taskmaster of the lesser city of the Blackrock citadel. He receives his commands from General Drakkisath.


  • Cleave- Inflicts 110% of normal melee damage to an enemy and its nearest allies, affecting up to 3 targets in a 180 degree arc.
  • Demoralizing Shout- Reduces the melee attack power of nearby enemies for 30 sec.
  • Sweeping Slam- Inflicts normal damage plus 50 to enemies in a cone in front of the caster, knocking them back.


Wyrmthalak is a relatively simple fight. He performs a knockback so it is best to tank him against the wall behind him. Melee DPS should stand behind Wyrmthalak to avoid the Cleave and Slam abilities. When he reaches around 50% health, two random choices of a Spirestone Warlord, Smolderthorn Berserker, or Bloodaxe Veteran will run up the ramp to assist him. They will need to be controlled or off-tanked to prevent them from attacking casters.

If you can kill Wyrmthalak fast enough, move back to the wall behind where Wyrmthalak was initially standing. The two mobs that show up to help, which if Wyrmthalak is already dead, will just stand there and do nothing and you won't aggro them.

Wyrmthalak is soloable with most level 70 classes.
