Lei Shi is the third boss in Terrace of Endless Spring. She is a sha-corrupted water elemental who will help players with the final battle with the Sha of Fear after being freed from corruption. The fight involves challenging tank swap mechanics and strong adds that revive periodically. Once the sha is defeated, her image appears on the main platform.

She spawns by defeating the Corrupted Protectors, she ripples nervously upon their defeat, after the player causes AOE damage it will make her ripple to the point it becomes fully visible.


Adventure Guide

For countless years, this friendly water spirit frolicked in the Fountains of Endless Spring with childlike wonder and glee. When fighting suddenly broke out in this peaceful place, Lei Shi saw the crystal-clear water turn cloudy and murky, and terror fell over her mind.

Spells and abilities

  • Spell shadow soulleech 2.png  Afraid Important — Lei Shi grows more afraid as players hurt her. She gains 8% casting speed for each 10 percent health of her total health lost. 
  • Spell frost summonwaterelemental.png  Spray Tank Alert — Lei Shi casts spray instead of using melee attacks. Spray causes water to burst from the ground at a player's feet, inflicting 100,000[note 1] Frost damage to all players within 2.5 yards and increasing their Frost damage taken by 12% for 10 sec. 
  • Ability vanish.png  Hide — Lei Shi hides from players. Players cannot target her while hiding, but area of effect attacks and spells can still hit her. Lei Shi reveals herself after the players strike her enough times. But she won't hide anymore after several seconds.
  • Spell shaman measuredinsight.png  Get Away! — Lei Shi channels, releasing sha energy that pushes players away and inflicts 90,000 periodic Shadow damage. Players who fight the current take half damage. Lei Shi channels for 30 sec or until players inflict 4% of her maximum health in damage. 
  • Creatureportrait bubble.png  Protect — At 80%, 60%, 40%, and 20% health remaining, Lei surrounds herself with an inpenetrable bubble and animates several elementals to protect her. She maintains the bubble until players defeat one of her Animated Protectors. 
    • Animated Protector Tank Alert — When Lei Shi casts Protect, she animates these elementals from the bracers scattered throughout the area. The elementals turn back into water and fall to the ground when the effect ends. 
  • Spell shadow haunting.png  Scary Fog Heroic Difficulty Important — Sha energy coalesces around several players, inflicting 4000[note 2] Shadow damage every 1 sec for 35 sec. In addition, players and enemies near an afflicted player take 10% more damage from all sources. This effect stacks. A target may only be afflicted by one Scary Fog at a time. 
  1. ^ Raid Finder: 68,750, 25-man: 125,000, 10-man heroic: 101,250, 25-man heroic: 135,000

Position the raid in a triangle, with one tank on one corner, the second tank on another corner and the remainder of the raid on the third corner (similar to the positioning for Phase 2 of Beth'tilac in the Firelands). The aim of this positioning is to have only the active tank affected by Spray. The two tanks will regularly need to taunt off each other to prevent Spray from stacking too high.

When Lei Shi casts Protect (at 80%, 60%, 40% and 20%), perform a tank switch, and have the off-tank pick up the Mob Animated Protectors (Lei Shi continues to cast Spray while the Protectors are up). The raid leader should mark one Protector to be focused down, and any remaining Protectors can be crowd controlled to reduce damage. The raid must aim to kill the marked Protector before the main tank has too many stacks of Spray (the off-tank can not taunt the boss at this time as the damage from the Protectors and the boss's Spray will be too intense).

When Lei Shi casts Get Away, the raid must move forward towards the boss while attempting to take 4% health off (which will stop the channel). Raid members who do not move forward will take increased damage; however, any abilities with a cast time cannot be used while moving forward (unless class-specific abilities that allow this are used). Both defensive and offensive cooldowns should be used in order to survive more easily and end the Get Away cast as quickly as possible.

When Lei Shi casts Hide, DPS needs to spread out and find her. A player close enough to Lei Shi's location will see visual clues as to her whereabouts (clouds, sparks, water splashes, etc.). Once found, players need to spam AoE abilities in this location to break Hide.

Spray is not cast during Get Away and Hide phases.

The encounter has a strict enrage timer, so Lei Shi's abilities that make her unattackable (Protect, Get Away, Hide) need to be dealt with swiftly. This encounter can be considered to be the raid instance's gear check.

[Bloodlust]/ [Heroism]/ [Time Warp] should be popped after the Protector wave at 20% is dealt with. Lei Shi gains 8% haste for every 10% damage dealt to her (which makes Spray more and more problematic), so the last 20% needs to be burned as quickly as possible.
