Gúrthul (Sindarin for Breath of Death) is a boss encountered within the Castle of the Witch-king, deep within Carn Dûm (Instance).



Gúrthul will split up into several ghostly versions of himself; defeat each of Gúrthul's ghosts as they come at the party one by one from the side rooms. You will end up defeating him seven times (the last being his true form and not a ghost). Each ghost will randomly choose a particular class (even classes which may not be in the fellowship) and apply a 30-second stun to players of that class. He will say which class he is targeting as he does this. Lore-masters can put stun protection on the party members (especially the tank and healer), although sometimes it may need to be re-applied as Gúrthul can also strip stun protection.


"Impressive... Now the real challenge begins..." (after you beat all his ghosts)

"Prepare yourselves. Perhaps you will get lucky!"

"Take a break in your struggles, mortal"

"Sleep now" (AoE mezz on all around him)

"Your signs will no longer protect you" (strips stun protection)

"Rest now <character>" (Mezz on single player)

"It is your Minstrels that feel my wrath"

"Come out from the shadows, Burglars"

"Put down your swords, Champions"

"Your Guardians cannot shield you"

"Your Champion's blades will be useless now!"

"Put down you bows, Hunters, or I will put them down for you."

"Even the mightiest blows will not avail you, Brawlers!"

"The old ways have failed you, lore-masters."

"Your fortunes will change as swiftly as your skin, Beornings!"
