Gahz'ranka is a boss for anglersю It was present in Zul'Gurub before the Cataclysm. To summon this boss, it was necessary to go to the northeast bank of the river. There was an abandoned Pagle's Point camp. At one of the tents, there was a box in which lay the item that started Nat's Measuring Tape quest. According to the quest, it was necessary to go to Dustwallow Marsh and talk to a fisherman named Nat Pagle. After completing the quest, Nat acquired Mudskunk Lure, which, together with five Mudskunk caught in Zul'Gurub, allowed him to summon a huge hydra – Gahz'ranka. To complete the quest, a raid group was required so that the player could go to the right place and fish, and then kill the boss. As a reward for killing Gahz'ranka, various themed items were relied on, including Nat Pagle's Fish Terminator, Tigule's Harpoon, and so on.


Since we're talking about hydra, we can't help but tell you about Gahz'rilla, which lives in the western part of Zul'Farrak. There is a small pool with a shrine and a gong. Initially, a special hammer was needed to summon the boss, the location of which was reported by ancient tablets. The tablets could be taken away from the Zul'Gurub trolls, the text pointed to the keeper at The Altar of Zul. The found hammer had to be brought to Jintha'alor and charged with its power. If you don't know, Jintha'alor and The Altar of Zul are located in the Hinterlands, on another continent altogether. So, it was necessary to knock out the hammer from Qiaga the Keeper, take it to Jintha'alor, climb to the top of the temple, load the weapon with power and get the Hammer Zul'Farrak. It wasn't easy because Jintha'alor is a huge city full of elite trolls. In short, a group was required to complete the quest, the hammer itself served as a good weapon with bonuses to strength and endurance, and its owner could summon a boss in Zul'Farrak for himself and his allies at any time.

Terestian Illhoof

Many fans will say that Terestian Illhoof from the old Karazhan is the most common raid boss, but we think we just have to tell about him – after all, he is not in everyone's sight. To get to Terestian, you need to use a secret passage. Where do you think the door is? That's right, behind the bookshelf. And if it seems to you that everyone knows about this secret passage, then this is not so. Anyway, it's a secret passage behind a bookshelf. It's cool.
The boss stands at the very end of the turn, and small demons constantly appear outside this room. These demons disappear after the death of Terestian. So at the current time, he was killed not only for loot.

Urok Doomhowl

Another secret boss that few people know about right now is at the bottom of Blackrock Mountain Peak. Not far from the entrance to the dungeon is Roughshod Pike. A little further away there is a boss, Highlord Omokk, from which you can get the Omokk head. The head and spear need to be carried up to the pile of skulls, impale the head on a spear and perform a ritual to summon another ogre boss named Urok Doomhowl. The ogre doesn't come alone, so be prepared.

Avatar of Hakkar

Today Avatar of Hakkar is another boss in a low–level dungeon, but before the Cataclysm it could only be summoned after completing a special chain of quests. The chain began with the troll Yeh'kinya, who stood in Tanaris. Yeh'kinya offered players to harness the power of the blood god Hakkar, who was worshipped by the trolls from the Gurubashi tribe. To do this, it was necessary to collect the souls of kites from Feralas, and then get tablets with ancient writings in Zul'Farrak – this was the first group quest of the chain. After reading the tablets, Yeh'kinya sent the player for an ancient egg owned by Jintha'alor trolls. After getting the egg, you could go to the Sunken temple and begin the ritual of summoning. During the ritual, it was necessary to fight with the green dragons and the shadow of Hakkar himself. After killing the shadow, the player enclosed the essence of the ancient deity in an egg, returned to Yeh'kinya, and found out that the vile troll had deceived him. In fact, the tablets and the egg were needed by the trolls to bring Hakkar back to Azeroth. Later, this mistake could be corrected in the raid dungeon Zul'Gurub by killing Hakkar again.
The game is already twenty years old and it is difficult to even calculate how many challenges the players have overcome over the years. According to the tradition of the MMORPG genre, the passage of bosses is the most difficult and time-consuming activity, requiring not only solid preparation of each player but also the well-coordinated work of the entire team. There is even a whole rating of the most difficult bosses that no one managed to pass on the first attempt. In this article, we talked about those bosses that only real fans of World of Warcraft know about.
