As the first boss in the Arachnid Quarter, Anub'Rekhan isn't very complex and should be one of the most accessible bosses in Naxxramas, even in 25-player mode. It only has really annoying mechanics and summons creatures during the fight which will have to be managed by the Offtank.

Anub'Rekhan starts the fight accompanied by a Crypt Keeper in Mode 10 like 25. A Tank must take care of the boss permanently that he turns his back to the raid so that he only hits the main Tank with his Impale , an area in front of him that inflicts heavy Physical damage, while the off-tank should take the Crypt Keeper's aggro and place it on the boss immediately. A second appears more about fifteen seconds after starting the fight, same price for him: under the boss and we cleave!

  • Clarification: In 25-player mode, a second Crypt Keeper is present even before starting the encounter. It doesn't change much in combat and the strategy is the same as in 10-player mode: everyone under the boss and we cleave.

    The top priority for DPS is to kill the Crypt Keepers as quickly as possible. Anub'Rekhan will indeed summon them periodically during the fight, every 80 to 120 seconds or so, so you have to make sure they don't overwhelm you by killing them little by little.

    As soon as the Crypt Keepers have been killed, the group of DPS casters and Healers must move about 30 meters away (25 to be precise) from Anub'Rekhan, and the Main Tank must direct the boss towards the right side of the arena. The reason for this is that every 80 to 120 seconds, the boss launches a Swarm of Locusts which has the effect of reducing its own movement speed by 60% (75% in mode 25), inflicting weak Nature damage to players within 25 yards every 2 seconds and pacify them (which prevents you from attacking, even in melee). At the same time, a new Crypt Keeper appears.

    To counter this mechanic, the main Tank must gently kite the boss on the right of the arena while the rest of the group accompanied by the second Tank must stand on the left of it and take care of the boss as quickly as possible. Keeper of the Crypts. If the kitting is done correctly, the Locust Swarm should end when Anub'Rekhan reaches the arena entrance, and the Crypt Keeper should be dead by the time.

    Last but not least, the boss is able to summon Corpse Eater Scarabs from the corpses of previously killed Crypt Keepers, but also from the corpses of players! These have only a few health points but are quite annoying for the DPS casters, it's up to the secondary tank to collect them and place them under the boss so that they are swept away by the AoE. Anub'Rekhan summons 10 Scarabs per Crypt Keeper corpse, and 5 per player corpse.

  • Important: Anub'Rekhan does not enrage, so take the time you need to defeat him. The fight is really very simple!
