I'd say the PvE battle prowess of this pet is overrated. No self healing. A mix of aquatic and elemental damage. PWS fits the same bill and is stronger.


Nonetheless an easy to farm pet with a nice model. Good for collectors.

I found him hard to solo now, there are also a lot of adds arround. I reccomend clearing the area first or you will have trouble like I did.

What an AWESOME battle pet! Honey hits like a mack truck and though the three abilities I use with her have cool-downs, the pet she's attacking is DEAD by the time I've used her third ability. (Use her as 1st pet and swap her out and then back for the 3rd opponent) I think she's one of the most beautiful pets out there as well (I have been scuba diving with a free-swimming Green Moray Eel so I love these misunderstood creatures)--she's an 11 on a scale of 10 as a battle pet, WOW!!

I named mine Flotsam since it looks like an eel from The Little Mermaid. Luckily my husband got this for me. I didn't like it at first, I mean it's not very cute. But I grew attached to it. Haven't used it in battle yet.

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 dropped. So I did my research, and realized 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, good 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

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