I hope you aren't scared of spiders...

In his third week in the World of Warcraft (WoW) Wrath of the Lich King (WotLK) Beta, Byron "Messiah" Mudry explores yet another instance on the continent of Northrend. This time he visits the level 74-75 instance called Azjol-Nerub, home on the spider like Nerubians. It can be found on the north-western edge of the Dragonblight zone and is just a small part of the Nerubians underground empire. The instance is visually creepy, mixing Aztec or Mayan like elements with spiders, insects, and webs.

The curse that Krik'thir the Gatewatcher applies is called Curse of Fatigue and the target and anyone within a small radius. He casts it at what seems like random targets at intervals throughout the fight. It hits the target and those around it for roughly 3000 shadow damage and a 10 second debuff that slows movement, attack, and casting speed. It makes it important to keep separated during the fight.

You can find all the details in our Instance Preview Guide - Azjol-Nerub.
