G'nathus is a boss-level eel swimming offshore of the north side of Shan'ze Dao in northwestern Townlong Steppes.

Some pandaren believe G'nathus to be an ancient Zandalari loa left behind to guard the waters south of Lei Shen's island citadel,[1] while others suggest that the mogu formed the great beast in their Halls of Flesh-Shaping. A very small group thinks that G'nathus was once Lei Shen's pet fish, empowered by years of proximity to the Thunder King and flushed down into the contaminated sewers beneath the palace.[2]


  • Spell nature wispsplode.png  Arc Nova — Inflicts 350,000 Nature damage to enemies within 35 yards and knocks them back.
  • Spell lightning lightningbolt01.png  Lightning Breath 30 yd range — Breathes lightning at an enemy, inflicting Nature damage. 1 sec cast. Interruptible. Hits for 87,000-90,000 Nature.


To solo G'nathus, players will need any form of water walking (like the  [Elixir of Water Walking] and the ability to do damage both at range and on the move. G'nathus primarily casts Lightning Breath in a 40-yard arc in front, so constantly strafe along the edge of the hitbox. Make sure to be slightly outside of the hitbox when G'nathus casts Arc Nova.

Remember that getting hit will cause the water walking buff to drop, so have several elixirs available.
