How To Kill Nexus-Prince Shaffar – Last Boss in Mana Tombs – World of Warcraft
Nexus-Prince Shaffar is the final boss in the Mana Tombs instance. This essay will discuss the proper method to defeat Prince Shaffar.
You will find Mana Tombs in Auchindoun, which is located in the center of the Bone Wastes zone. To reach Mana Tombs from Shattrath city, you will need to travel east out of town until you reach the first road. Follow that road south until you enter the Bone Wastes, and then keep heading south. You will eventually enter an area of structural ruins called Auchindoun. Work your way to the interior of Auchindoun and you will find the Summoning Stone for the Auchindoun instances. From the Summoning Stone, head directly north and you will find the entrance to Mana Tombs. (Tip: Mana Tombs has many Consortium NPCs outside of the instance-entrance. If you don’t see these NPCs, you may be at the wrong entrance!)
Before your party engages Prince Shaffar, every player should be well aware of the following:
Ethereal Beacons – These are what kill you and will no doubt wipe your party repeatedly until everyone figures out that they must die first. The Prince will have three of these floating near him at the start of the fight. The Ethereal Beacons will transform into casters if your party does not destroy them fast enough. If the Beacons are allowed to transform into casters, they will proceed to blast your party to pieces. It is important to focus on the Ethereal Beacons at the start of the fight, and then DPS the Prince once the Beacons are dead. Additionally, party members should immediately switch their targeting to any Ethereal Beacon should one spawn and destroy it before continuing to DPS the Prince.
The basic strategy for Nexus-Prince Shaffar:
1. Only your tank should engage the Prince at the start. Everyone else should pre-target each of the three Ethereal Beacons before your tank pulls Prince Shaffar. Assign targets to party members to ensure everyone knows which Ethereal Beacon they are killing. (TIP: There is always one Ethereal Beacon located directly behind the Prince. The easiest way to target that Beacon is to click directly above the Prince’s head.)
2. When you tank pulls, all other party members must focus their attention on the three Beacons and destroy them as fast as possible. Killing the Beacons first is critical to winning this fight. When the Beacons are destroyed, party members may begin to DPS the Prince.
3. Occasionally, the Prince will Blink and teleport a short distance away. Normally this does not reset the aggro list. Your tank should be able to immediately move to the Prince after every Blink. Also, your healers must be prepared to move in case there are line-of-sight issues for healing the tank.
4. Approximately every ten seconds, Prince Shaffar will spawn another Ethereal Beacon somewhere nearby. All party members (except your tank and healer) should immediately focus their DPS onto the new Ethereal Beacon until it is destroyed. Do not let the Beacon transform into a caster! Once the Beacon is dead, resume DPS on Prince Shaffar.
5. If you’ve reached this stage, then you’ve got the Ethereal Beacons under control. Now you should DPS the Prince as you would any other boss, and then divvy up the loot.
Nexus-Prince Shaffar does not hit very hard (melee-wise), so your tank should not be taking considerable physical-damage throughout the fight. However, the Prince does cast magic damage, specifically: frost, shadow, fire, and arcane damage. If you have any auras or resistance-spells that can be cast, they will be helpful. It is not necessary to switch to resistance gear for this fight; DPS gear is far more important than any kind of resistance gear that you might have.
If you’re the leader of the party, it is imperative that you stress to your fellow party-members to kill the Ethereal Beacons immediately. The Beacons are the critical element to this fight. Control them and you will defeat Nexus-Prince Shaffar without difficulty.

How to Kill Pandemonius – First Boss in Mana Tombs – World of Warcraft
Pandemonius – a 66 elite Demon, is the first boss in the Auchindoun instance called Mana Tombs. This article will discuss how to defeat this Demon.
Auchindoun is located in the middle of the Bone Wastes, which is just south east of Shattrath city. You will need to travel East out of Shattrath city and then turn right – or head south, at the first road. Keep following that road until you enter The Bone Wastes.
Travel to the middle of the Bone Wastes and you will find a large, dilapidated stone structure. Auchindoun is located inside these ruins. You will need to work your way through a series of stone corridors before you reach the Summoning Stone for the Auchindoun instances. The Summoning Stone serves the following instances: Mana Tombs, Sethekk Halls, Shadow Labyrinth, and Auchenai Crypts. Mana Tombs can be found by heading directly north from the Summoning Stone.
When you get near the Mana Tombs entrance, you will see many Consortium NPCs where you can acquire several different quests. I recommend you skip all available Consortium quests until you have earned at least Honored Reputation with Consortium by repeatedly completing the Mana Tombs instance.
After you enter Mana Tombs, you will need to successfully pull five or six groups of mobs before you can actually engage the first boss, which is Pandemonius.
Pandemonius has two abilities that all party members should know about:
Void Blast – He will cast a series of five shadow-damage blasts that will also produce a knock-back effect. Since your tank will be positioned with his or her back against a wall or other solid object throughout this entire fight, your tank is going to get hit multiple times in rapid succession from this ability. Your healers must be able to heal him or her through these blasts. For Heroic mode encounters, it is imperative that your tank wear considerable shadow resist gear. Other party members should have 100+ shadow resist gear each (for Heroic mode).
Dark Shell – When this ability is active, you will see a small, green shield (look closely while fighting him; it is difficult to spot). The party leader should immediately tell everyone to stop all DPS when Pandemonius uses Dark Shell. This includes your tank. Spells will be reflected during this time, and melee attackers will take about 1,000 points of damage for every successful hit on Pandemonius. Any damage-over-time-spells (DOTS) cast prior to his casting of Dark Shell will continue to damage him.
Near the stone tablet is a mound of dirt that is piled-up against a wall. This mound is one of two spots for tanking the boss. The other position is against the large stone table. Your tank should fight Pandemonius either on top of the mound or with his/her back against the tablet. Melee should position themselves behind the boss throughout this fight and be prepared to move away (if necessary) when he casts Void Blast.
Casters, hunters, and healers should stand near the large, stone tablet and place their back against it. Or, if the tank is positioned against the tablet, the ranged dps/healers should stand on top of the mound. By keeping your backs against the wall or the tablet, you will avoid getting knocked back from Void Blast and avoid missed heals or slowed DPS.
Most newcomers make the mistake of continuing to attack Pandemonius while Dark Shell is in effect. You’ll spot these players immediately because they are the first to die, and they will die very quickly. If you’re the party leader, it’s up to you to let everyone know exactly when to stop DPS.
A simple method to notify everyone to stop DPS is to setup a macro that says, “STOP DPS”. You could set it up as a yell or as a warning message that flashes in the middle of the screen. Either way, it’s up to the party leader to notify everyone exactly when they should stop attacking Pandemonius. The key to defeating Pandemonius revolves around stopping DPS during Dark Shell. Good luck!
