WoW Cataclysm - Lady Naz'jar Boss Guide


Lady Naz'jar is a prominent figure in the vast and perilous underwater world of Vashj'ir. Known for her cunning and military prowess, Naz'jar played a crucial role in reclaiming Vashj'ir from the brutal forces of the Kvaldir. This feat earned her the favor of Queen Azshara, solidifying her position as one of the most trusted and capable leaders of the naga realm. However, her ambition and determination did not stop there.

Recently, Lady Naz'jar spearheaded a daring assault against Neptulon, the powerful elemental lord of water. With meticulous planning and relentless execution, she managed to corner Neptulon in his own throne room, once again demonstrating her ability to face and overcome formidable challenges. This attack not only showcased her military might but also her capacity to impact the balance of power among the elemental forces.

Through her victories and unwavering loyalty to Queen Azshara, Lady Naz'jar has forged a legacy of strength and strategy in the ocean depths. Her story is a testament to the perseverance and ambition that define the naga in their quest for domination and control over the seas.

Lady Naz'jar Abilities

1. Summon Geyser Summon Geyser: Lady Naz'jar summons a Geyser at the location of a random player. After 5 seconds, the Geyser erupts, dealing 23,750-26,250 Frost damage and knocking back all units within 5 yards of the Geyser.

2. Fungal Spores Fungal Spores: Lady Naz'jar hurls deadly Fungal Spores at the location of a random enemy target. They explode on impact, affecting all nearby enemy targets within 5 yards. Any targets caught within this radius take 10,000 Nature damage every 3 seconds for 15 seconds.

3. Shock Blast Shock Blast: Lady Naz'jar blasts her current target with a tremendous charge of lightning, dealing 33,250-36,750 Nature damage.

4. Waterspout Waterspout: When Lady Naz'jar reaches 60% and 30% of her remaining health, she will begin to channel Waterspout. The swirling water constantly knocks back any units within 5 yards, deflects any spell targeting Lady Naz'jar, and causes all ranged attacks against her to miss. When she begins to channel Waterspout, two Naz'jar Tempest Witches and one Naz'jar Honor Guard will swim into the chamber and begin to attack players. Lady Naz'jar will continue to channel Waterspout until 1 minute has passed, or all three additional Naga are destroyed.

Naz'jar Honor Guard Abilities

When Lady Naz'jar begins to channel Waterspout, one of these Naga soldiers swims in and attacks the players.

1. Arc Slash Arc Slash: The Honor Guard slashes all targets in front of him within a 5-yard cone, dealing 150% of his normal melee damage to each target. The Arc Slash cannot be dodged, blocked, or parried.

2. Enrage Enrage: When a Naz'jar Honor Guard reaches 35% of his remaining health, he will cast Enrage. The Enrage effect increases his melee attack speed by 50% and size by 20% for 1 minute.

Naz'jar Tempest Witch Abilities

When Lady Naz'jar begins to channel Waterspout, two of these Naga casters swim in and attack the players.

1. Chain Lightning Chain Lightning: The Tempest Witch unleashes an arc of lightning that strikes her current enemy target for 9,250-10,750 Nature damage, and then arcs to two more enemy targets. Each target after the first takes 30% less damage.

2. Lightning Surge Lightning Surge: The Tempest Witch creates a violent electrical charge on a random enemy target. After 5 seconds, the charge is unleashed, causing the target to inflict 14,138-15,862 Nature damage to all friendly targets within 8 yards.

Tips and Strategy

Lady Naz'jar is a single-phase boss encounter with two identical intermissions called High Tide, which occur when she reaches 60% and 30% health remaining. During these intermissions, she summons Naz'jar Tempest Witch, Naz'jar Honor Guard, and Murloc of the Depths. To succeed in this encounter, follow these strategies:

All Roles

- Interrupt Water Bolt: Interrupt as many Water Bolt casts as possible.

- Spread Out During Focused Storm: Stay slightly spread during the Focused Storm channel to minimize group damage.

- Manage Shock Blast: If you are targeted by Shock Blast, move away from the group to avoid hitting them with the follow-up Shock Orb effect.

- Avoid Geysers: Do not stand on the Geyser ground effect to prevent damage and knockback.

- High Tide Intermission: During High Tide, prioritize interrupting the Naz'jar Tempest Witch’s Frost Bolt and use Purge/Dispel effects on her Icy Veins buff. Avoid standing in front of the Naz'jar Honor Guard to evade his Trident Barrage frontal attack and use Enrage dispels on his Serpent Strike aura.


- Focus on Tempest Witches: During High Tide, your primary target should be the Naz'jar Tempest Witch. Interrupt her Frost Bolt and focus on killing her first.


- Collect and Stack Adds: During High Tide, gather aggro on all adds (Naz'jar Tempest Witch, Naz'jar Honor Guard, and Murloc of the Depths) and stack them together for more efficient AoE damage and quicker intermissions.


- Maintain Health During Focused Storm: Keep the party healthy during the Focused Storm channel.

- Dispel Icy Veins: Remove the Icy Veins buff from the Naz'jar Tempest Witch to make the High Tide intermission easier to handle.

Detailed Breakdown

1. Water Bolt Interrupts: Assign specific players to interrupt Water Bolt to ensure none of the casts go off, reducing overall damage taken by the party.

2. Focused Storm Channel: Spread out slightly during Focused Storm to mitigate damage and knockbacks. Healers should be prepared for increased group damage.

3. Shock Blast Management: The player targeted by Shock Blast should immediately move away from the group to avoid the Shock Orb effect causing splash damage.

4. Handling Geysers: Move out of Geyser ground effects promptly to avoid significant frost damage and knockback.

5. High Tide Intermission:

- Focus on quickly taking down the summoned adds. Priority should be given to interrupting the Naz'jar Tempest Witch’s Frost Bolt to prevent heavy party damage.
- Tanks should group the adds together for more efficient AoE damage.
- Healers should dispel Icy Veins and use Enrage dispels on Serpent Strike to manage damage effectively.
