The Prophet Tharon'ja is the last boss of Drak'Tharon Keep. He is a large skeletal Wind Serpent, much like the Avatar of Hakkar.


He begins the fight as a skeletal serpent with a few abilities:

  • Shadowbolt (2000 damage)
  • Curse of Life (Drains 50% of the enemy's health.)

At certain intervals he uses Decay Flesh, which drains party members' health and turns Tharon'ja into a mortal Windserpent while turning the players into undead skeletons. When in this form, the skeleton players have four spells:

  • Touch of Life: Instant cast, 20 yard range, steals 1900 to 2100 life from target enemy. 5 second cooldown.
  • Bone Armor: Instant cast, encases the caster in bone armor, absorbing 4163 to 4837 damage for 10 sec. While the armor holds, spellcasting cannot be interrupted by physical attacks. 10 second cooldown.
  • Taunt: Instant cast, 10 yard range, taunts the creature, increasing the chance that it will attack the caster.
  • Slaying Strike: Instant cast, 8 yard range, requires melee weapon, inflicts normal damage plus 602 to 698 to an enemy. 1 sec cooldown.

When in mortal form the second and all subsequent times, Tharon'ja will cast a ground-targeted AoE, which does 800 to 900 Nature damage per tick to any player standing in the area. It can be avoided by simply moving around and out of that area.

After a certain percentage of damage is done in this form, everyone switches back. The switch back is an aggro wipe. The cycle repeats until he is dead.

Upon aggroing:

  • "Tharon'ja sees all! The work of mortals shall not end the eternal dynasty!"

Casting Decay Flesh:

  • "Your flesh serves Tharon'ja now!"
  • "Tharon'ja has a use for your mortal shell!"

Upon slaying a player:

  • "As Tharon'ja predicted."
  • "As it was written."

When players turn into skeletons:

  • "No! A taste... all too brief!"
  • "Tharon'ja will have more!"

Upon death:

  • "Im... impossible! Tharon'ja is eternal! Tharon'ja... is..."
