Theka the Martyr is an elite undead sand troll mini-boss found in Zul'Farrak. A historical figure in Sandfury society who sacrificed himself for the benefit of his people, those who persecuted him were forever cursed into the form of scarabs. Yeh'kinya wants the tablet that Theka possesses.

Dungeon Journal

Long ago, the martyr Theka was slain in the brutal war between the qiraji and the trolls. Zul'Farrak still stands because of his brave sacrifice. Even in death he maintains a vigil over his beloved city, and it is said that the dozens of insectoid warriors who killed him were cursed to live as mindless scarabs, scuttling at the martyr's side.


  • Spell nature nullifydisease.png  Fevered Plague Disease Interruptible — Inflicts 250 Nature damage to an enemy, then an additional 11 damage every 3 sec. for 30 sec. 
  • Spell shadow antishadow.png  Theka Transform — When Theka the Martyr reaches 30% remaining health, he transforms, making him immune to Physical and Shadow damage for 15 sec. 


His fight is a simple one, same as fighting a standard trash mob, but with a twist. At about 25% HP he becomes immune to physical and shadow damage. However, if you stunlock him from 25-0% he will NOT become immune. The immunity is a buff that wears off after 30 seconds. AoE damage must be avoided as the numerous scarabs surrounding him can overwhelm a party. Note that Theka is an undead target and can be hit with spells such as [Exorcism], [Shackle Undead], [Holy Wrath], and [Turn Undead].
