The flamewakers are among the most feared elemental guardians in the Firelands. Shannox is no exception. Serving as the chief hunter and kennel master of Ragnaros’ hell hounds, Shannox patrols the elemental realm with his two most ferocious beasts: Riplimb and Rageface.

  • Immolation Trap: Shannox launches a fiery trap at the feet of a player. The trap takes 2 sec to arm, and triggers when stepped on thereafter, dealing 52529 Fire damage immediately and 21012 Fire damage every 3 sec, and increasing all damage taken by 40% for 9 sec.
  • Crystal Prison Trap: Shannox launches a prison trap at the feet of a player. The trap takes 2 sec to arm, and triggers when stepped on thereafter, encasing the target in a block of magma crystal, preventing all movement or other actions. Only by destroying the crystal prison can a trapped player be freed.
  • Arcing Slash: Shannox causes 125% of normal melee damage in a wide arc up to 1 yards in front of him, and inflicts Jagged Tear on those he strikes.
  • Jagged Tear: Shannox’s Arcing Slash leaves a Jagged Tear that deals 3000 physical damage every 3 sec for 30 sec. Stacks.
  • Hurl Spear: Shannox hurls his spear in the direction of his hound, Riplimb. The spear deals 126072 physical damage to anyone it strikes directly as well as 52530 Fire damage to all enemies within 50 yards. The spear strike also triggers a cascade of molten eruptions around the impact point, which deal 52530 Fire damage to enemies that are caught in them. Riplimb will then break off from combat, fetch the spear, and return it to Shannox.
  • Frenzy: When both of Shannox’s hounds are defeated, he goes into a frenzy, increasing physical damage and attack speed by 30. Shannox no longer uses Hurl Spear after this point, and instead drives his spear directly into the ground to trigger the same cascade of molten eruptions around the impact point, which deal 52530 Fire damage to enemies that are standing in them.

Minions

Riplimb

Shannox has two hounds. Riplimb will attack the target with the most threat.

  • Limb Rip: Riplimb bites savagely, dealing 175% of normal melee damage to an enemy, and inflicting Jagged Tear on those he strikes.
  • Jagged Tear: Riplimb’s Limb Rip leaves a Jagged Tear that deals 3000 physical damage every 3 sec for 30 sec. Stacks.
  • Frenzied Devotion: Riplimb goes into an unstoppable rage if he is alive to witness Shannox’s health reach 30%. This effect increases damage dealt by 200% and attack and movement speed by 100%.

Rageface

Shannox has two hounds. Rageface cannot be controlled, and will dart about from enemy to enemy, changing targets periodically.

  • Face Rage: Rageface leaps at a random target, stunning and knocking them to the ground, and begins to viciously claw at them. This mauling initially deals 8000 physical damage every 0.50 sec, but the damage dealt increases over time. While so occupied, Rageface is 50% more susceptible to critical strikes. Rageface will continue until his target is dead, or he receives a single attack that deals at least 40,000 damage.
  • Frenzied Devotion: Rageface goes into an unstoppable rage if he is alive to witness Shannox’s health reach 30%. This effect increases damage dealt by 200% and attack and movement speed by 100%.
