World-gorger Shukarhazh is a Dungeoneering boss monster that can be fought on the Warped floors of Daemonheim, starting at floor 54. It requires a Dungeoneering level of 107 to encounter and fight. It is secondary only to Kal'Ger the Warmonger.
This boss has four attacks: the first attack is a melee attack, where it will spin forward and hit the player with its tail. The second is a mage attack in which it will spin in a circle about 2 times and a white projectile will be fired at the targeted player. The third is a range attack, taking the form of a red/black ball fired from the eyeballs on the walls of the room, that will hit players and deal splash damage. The fourth and final attack is the stomp attack, common among Dungeoneering bosses, that is used only on players that move under it. All three of its main attacks are highly accurate and powerful; however, the mage attack can only be partially blocked by prayer.
The boss will only use its melee attack when no eyes are closed, and will only use its magic attack when 1 or more of the eyes are closed. Its range attack will go on throughout the fight, faster if more eyes are open.
Because of this, it's best to use Protect from Melee or Deflect Melee, and dodge the splash-based range attacks (by running away from the spot you were standing) until an eye is closed, then switch to Protect from Magic or Deflect Magic and continue to dodge the range attacks for the least damage taken. Alternatively, a popular style is using Protect from Missiles or Deflect Missiles as this will completely block the boss's range-based splash attack. Beware that this leaves you open to the boss's other main attacks, however.
This boss is made up of four parts: the main body, which is the proper boss, and three eyes on the walls that serve as extensions to its body. The eyes are the Famished Melee Eye, the Famished Range Eye, and the Famished Mage Eye. These three eyes determine the boss's defences, and also cap damage to him. When all three eyes are open – as they will be at the start – damage against the World-gorger is capped at 2-digit hits. Players must attack the eyes to lift the damage cap. Damaging an eye sufficiently will cause it to close, raising the cap to a 3-digit hits, and closing two eyes removes the damage cap completely.
The Famished mage-eye is weak to arrows, the Famished ranger-eye to slash and the Famished warrior-eye to fire spells. Quickly closing the eyes is essential to a fast kill, so be sure to get all three combat styles before starting; having some players with staves and high-tiered shortbows will make this boss go much more smoothly. Note that the eyes will reopen some time after being closed, with a message appearing in the party members' chatboxes saying "The creature shifts, and one of its many eyes opens." This will reinstate the damage cap, so the team will have to close them again.
Closing an eye is not without its drawbacks; while it will raise the damage cap, it will also increase the main body's resistance to the combat style of the killed eye; it also increases the damage dealt by the boss in that combat style. So, for example, closing the melee eye will make the boss more resistant to melee, while allowing mage and range to hit harder. For this reason, one of the strategies for this boss is to choose in advance which style the party members will focus on, and close the other two eyes while leaving the relevant eye alone. The most popular strategy is to keep the range and magic eyes closed, avoid closing the melee eye, and use melee on the boss. However, the World-gorger has a high melee defence even with its mage and range eyes closed, and this can make for a slow kill. Using a bloodrager's special attack will speed up the process considerably. The Hexhunter bow is far more accurate, and with its speed it is drastically more effective for this boss. If two or more players have the Hexhunter bow, it is better for the team to focus on keeping the melee and mage eyes closed and allow those players with the bow to tackle the boss's main body.
The Range Ultimate "Incendiary Shot" can be extremely helpful on this boss, especially when doing large floors. Due to Shukarhazh's high hitpoints, Incendiary Shot will almost always hit for the maximum damage cap.
