Among the hateful spirits in the Cache of Madness are Gri'lek, a Dire troll stripped of his regenerative abilities by the loa; Renataki, an infamous and sadistic warrior; Hazza'rah, a seer tormented by dire future visions; and Wushoolay, a mighty combatant bristling with the powers of the storms.

Wushoolay will occasionally summon a Lightning Cloud on a random player. All players should get away from this cloud as soon as possible as it does massive damage.

Wushoolay will also casting Lightning Rush occasionally, where he will turn into a ball of lightning and charge a random player. Once he charges them, he will begin casting Lightning Rod which will kill anyone standing next to him at the time. Players simply need to run away from him after his Lightning Rush.

Overall, it's a very simple fight and as long as people pay attention to their surroundings, it should be no problem for anyone.
