Soloing difficulties

Nerub'enkan is known as the hardest hitter of the three bosses that defend Stratholme's Spirit Towers. Her raw, unmigrated damage is somewhere in the 3000s. She is immune to all stun and immobilization abilities, and has a long range attack that doesn't necessarily require her to be in line of sight with that which she is attacking. Her web ability temporaily makes that person or pet lose aggro, causing her to attack any solo-ing hunters or warlocks who may be using a pet to tank.
