Ozumat in the Abyssal Depths.

Ozumat is the patriarch of all kraken.[1] It appears to be in the service of the Old Gods' forces, fighting alongside the naga and faceless ones during N [30-35] Final Judgment and B [30-35] Defending the Rift. It is the final boss of the Throne of the Tides in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm and makes several appearances during the Vashj'ir storyline.



Cataclysm This section concerns content related to Cataclysm.

In Kelp'thar Forest, players starting out in Vashj'ir are immediately shipwrecked by Ozumat.

Players reach Abyssal Depths via a new submarine, which is immediately used to attack Ozumat. Later during the naga's battle against Neptulon, Lady Naz'jar unleashes Ozumat. Ozumat attaches itself to Neptulon's "head" leading to the victory of the naga. After the battle with Ozumat in the Throne of the Tides, Ozumat swims away with Neptulon.[2]

Neptulon would eventually free himself.

Ozumat has not been seen since the Cataclysm, but the drunk Master Gunner Line at Thresher's Wharf claims to have killed him singlehandedly.[3] Ozumat shows up, despite the claim, in Nazjatar where he can be seen peering in through the waterwall with a few Abyssal Megrims.

Adventure Guide

Tales of the monstrous kraken that terrorize Azeroth's high seas were once relegated to myth... but no longer. By some ill means, the naga have bent Ozumat - the patriarch of all kraken - to their will and unleashed him against Neptulon and his followers.


Stage One: Filthy Invaders!

Players begin this encounter by talking to Neptulon, then agreeing to defend him while he attempts to cleanse the waters surrounding him. If Neptulon dies, the encounter will reset. Stage one lasts 60 seconds.

  • Deep Murloc Invader — When the encounter begins, a pack of six Deep Murloc Invaders swim into the room and begins to attack Neptulon. Two more packs will swim into the room during this stage.
  • Vicious Mindlasher — Five seconds after the encounter begins, a Vicious Mindlasher enters the room. Two more will enter the room during this stage.
    • Spell shadow shadowbolt.png Shadow Bolt Interruptible — A Vicious Mindlasher hurls a bolt of dark magic at its current enemy target, inflicting 4712 to 5287 Shadow damage.
    • Spell shadow painspike.png Brain Spike Interruptible — The Vicious Mindlasher sends out waves of psychic energy, dealing 6597 to 7402 Shadow damage to all enemies within 40 yards. The mental feedback also causes the targets to lose 1000 mana.
    • Spell shadow gathershadows.png Veil of Shadow Heroic Difficulty Interruptible curse — The Vicious Mindlasher curses a random enemy target, reducing the healing dealt to that target by 50% for 5 sec.
  • Unyielding Behemoth — One of these creatures enters the room approximately 15 seconds after the stage begins.
    • Spell shadow teleport.png Shadow Blast — The Unyielding Behemoth leaps into the air before crashing back down, releasing a charge of dark energy upon impact. The released energy inflicts 23562 to 26437 Shadow damage to all enemy players within 5 yards and knocks them away.
    • Ability rogue shadowdance.png Blight Spray Tank Alert — The Unyielding Behemoth channels a 25 yard long stream of blight in a frontal 90 degree cone for 4 sec. Enemies are dealt 3298 to 3701 Shadow damage every second they are inside the blight spray.

Stage Two: The Beast Returns

When stage two begins, three Faceless Sappers jump into the room from the ceiling and begin to channel on Neptulon. Ozumat then swims in attaches himself to the room, but he is unattackable during this stage. Killing all three Faceless Sappers ends this stage.

  • Blight Beast Tank Alert — These creatures move very slowly.
    • Inv elemental mote shadow01.png Aura of Dread Heroic Difficulty — The Blight Beast is surrounded by an evil aura that inflicts 942 to 1057 Shadow damage every second to all enemies within 7 yards. When an enemy takes damage from the aura, they are inflicted with an additional effect that causes them to take 5% additional Shadow damage for 5 sec. This effect stacks.
  • Ozumat — Unattackable in Stage 2.
    • Ability rogue envelopingshadows.png Blight of Ozumat — Ozumat periodically spits out pools of blight near the location of a random enemy player. The circular pools of blight have a 10 radius, and last for 30 seconds. Any player that stands within the pool is inflicted with 200 Shadow damage every second for 6 sec. This effect stacks every second the player continues to stand within the pool.
  • Faceless Sapper — These continuously channel a beam onto Neptulon. Killing all three Faceless Sappers ends Stage 2.

Stage Three: Tidal Surge

Stage three begins when the three Faceless Sappers are destroyed. Ozumat begins to inject his blight into the entire room, and becomes attackable. When Ozumat reaches less than 10% of his remaining health, Ozumat retreats and the players win.

  • Ozumat — Ozumat is now attackable.
    • Ability rogue envelopingshadows.png Blight of Ozumat Healer Alert — Ozumat now constantly spits out blight into the room. Every player is inflicted with 200 Shadow damage every second for 6 sec. This effect stacks every second until the end of the encounter.
  • Spell nature giftofthewaterspirit.png Tidal Surge Important — After being freed from the Faceless Sappers, Neptulon infuses the players with Tidal Surge. This effect increases a player's maximum health by 500%, healing dealt by 500%, and damage dealt by 2000% until the end of the encounter.

The encounter consists of three phases. During phase 1, three different types of adds spawn, and must all be tanked and killed; the murloc packs are AoE'able, while the faceless adds require single-target damage. Interrupts on the casters are beneficial here. After a certain amount of adds have been killed, Phase 2 will begin.

In Phase 2, three faceless sappers appear and begin channeling a spell at Neptulon; DPS must kill those sappers. The tank must pick up and kite the Blight Beasts that spawn through this phase, taking care not to kite them through the other party members. Ozumat makes an appearance in this phase, spewing Blight of Ozumat at random party members, leaving a blighted area on the ground that people should move out of. The phase ends once all three faceless sappers have been killed; Neptulon purifies the waters, granting everyone a +health, +damage, and +regeneration buff. The Blight Beasts should be killed at this point.

Phase 3 is a DPS race: Ozumat must be driven off before Blight of Ozumat, now cast at the entire room, stacks to the point of being unhealable. This is generally the phase you wish to use DPS cooldowns on. Ozumat will capture Neptulon and retreat when his health has been reduced enough. A chest called Neptulon's Cache will be left behind, containing loot for the encounter.

Notes and trivia

  • Mindbenders are said to be Ozumat's children.[4]
  • In the Legion alpha, Ozumat appeared when the Earthen Ring summoned Neptulon and Neptulon revealed he had mastered the kraken. This part of the quest was removed before launch.
  • Ozumat appears as a neutral Legendary minion in the Throne of the Tides mini-set for Hearthstone. His flavor text reads: "Deathrattle: You'll be octo-sorry."
    • Ozumat was originally planned to appear in Hearthstone's Classic set, but was removed during the game's alpha test.


This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

Despite antagonizing both the Horde and the Alliance, in addition to Neptulon, the vrykul and the Earthen Ring forces, Ozumat may not be acting of his own accord - his will was apparently "bent" by the naga.
