Commander Kolurg/Commander Stoutbeard (The Nexus)
What the...what in the...well, don't just stand there boys, kill something!
These "optional" gentlemen appear in The Nexus' Hall of Statis on heroic mode. The commanders provide virtually the same fight: Commander Kolurg (Horde) spawns for Alliance groups, while Commander Stoutbeard (Alliance) appears for Horde players.
Their trademark: Whirlwind. Lots of it.

. Krik'thir the Gatewatcher (Azjol-Nerub) Keep an eye on the tunnel. We must not let anyone through! I hear footsteps. Be on your guard. I sense the living. Be ready.
Krik'thir, an Undead Nerubian vizier, is the first boss of Azjol-Nerub who guards the gate that leads further into the ancient city. His commander, Anub'Arak, is a powerful servant of the Lich King.
Krik'thir is accompanied by three groups of three spiders, led by Watcher Silthik, Watcher Gashra and Watcher Narjil. Some groups contain an Anub'ar Skirmisher. Once the first group of spiders has entered battle, the others (and later Krik'thir himself) will eventually join in.
