Using the Cursed Swabby Helmet [ item ] makes this fight really easy and soloable, just constantly be side stepping the breath, and move out during arc nova. Enjoy your free pet :]

I've killed G'nathus twice now; once for my own pet and second just to sell it. As a 90 BM Hunter (527iLevel) it was simple. It just takes a while. Use something to give you water walk. The fishing raft (use before engaging) or a water strider type pet works fine. Stay just at range and heal your pet every once in a while and it's easy peasy lemon squeazy :)

Got mine tonight, solo 90 Destro Lock with improved Void.  Didn't need much healing for the Void, took about 6 min to solo him.  Nice pet, may try to find him again sometimes and farm another pet for a fellow guildie who also collects battle pets.

I was doing fine on my ele shaman, but he reset on me 3 times when I almost had him dead because he got stuck on the rocks/mountains.  Just try to keep your distance from those and land of course.

Killed G'nathus solo, took me just under five minutes, dropping Spawn of G'nathus and Sharp Fangs x2 (lol) Worth it as an Ele shammy just keeping flame shock/Frost shock or earthgrab up. Keep dat water walking up, and you'll be fine. If you're not as geared as I, being a ~556-559 raider, it'll take longer, just don't let the slows fall off and you'll be good!

I did this last night on my 90 SV hunter. My husband helped on his rogue 90 Sub spec. He died like 4 times. I was able to use my pet to tank with it never going below 90 %. Didn't have to kite him. That Arc Nova is devestating to melee.

Easily soloed today with my ilvl 490 warlock using improved VW pet in Destro spec.


Granted it took about 13 minutes, butmy pet never died/had to be replaced, and I took no damage as well.

I had two guildies help me out, a druid (balance) and warrior. I'm a priest so I was bubbling and if he got too close to the tank I just feared him away...yes fear, snare, stun, etc work on him. Spawn of G'nathus was the only thing that dropped and my guildies were kind enough to pass! Huzzah!

I just got this litte guy awhile ago. I got someone to help me kill "Spawn of Ganuths" and no pet dtopped. So I did my research, and reliazed that I killed the wrong one ! :O. So I went looking for the real one and I got group going for it. I had to kill him three times before i finally won the roll of 93 on it :D. I was so happy! And Ganthus's respawn timer is 10mins. I hope this helps people, goo luck and happy collecting an hunting!! :)

Am I just lucky? Just bought on the AH for 2300 G, not sure if that's a good price. But with other rares I dont see to often, seemed like it was very low.

Don't confuse G'nathus, with Spawn of G'nathus.

Pet itself doesn't drop from Spawn of Gnathus. (which has 4m hp)


It drops from G'nathus. (40m hp) And it appears to be %100, but one per kill, not to all members.

Managed to kill him with a hunter he mostly dps'ed him down since im a disc Priest and the only thing that i could do is smite =D. He can be kited aswell. It took us 11min to get him down =) But it's worth the time... =D

We three manned this, Firemage, Ele shaman and Resto druid.  Was pretty fun - and I have to say, I just love my eel.  We'll be killing this until all three of us have our eels =) 


Think outside the box, he can be snared, stunned, rooted, and hibernated!

I would really like to get this one! But I'll need some help! I play on The Sha'tar (EU). Please drop me a message if there are other ppl interested in getting this! And with the respawn timer not being that bad, I'm more than willing to stick around and help others get it too that might want it!

He indeed hits like a truck.  Some AoE lightning breath, mostly melee dmg.

North most area in water on Isle of Shan'ze Dao in Towne Long Steppes.  Loc 25, 6. Look for the 2 caged cloudrunner hatchlings by the top of the cliff.


A few pointers that helped a group of 4 (War tank, Monk healer, Mage and me - shad priest)

There is a small rock area you can sit and rest and tag him & helps to reset if things are going bad and to drink up on a corpse run.  Nearly a direct line after  a slight turn if you do die.


You need to be in the water for the fight, just prepare to see him rise above it once engaged.  AoE damage will aggro 2 small reef pincer crabs that are easy to kill but you will not aggro anything else.


He respawned approx 5-10 min


I got lucky and won the roll - thank you <Pirates of the Blackwater> - they know to call on me if they need assistance :)

Some Pandaren believe G'nathus to be an ancient Zandalari Loa left behind to guard the waters south of Lei Shen's island citadel.
