Greyheart Nether-Mage is a mob in the Serpentshrine Cavern raid instance.
Nether-Mages can occur in any of three flavors- fire, frost, or arcane. The flavor of mage may be determined by looking at their self-buff; each uses a damage buff of its particular school, as well as two different AOEs of that school. For example a fire mage has a self-cast buff that grants +350 fire spell power. These buffs may be stolen to boost your mages' damage and reduce the damage dealt by the mob. Furthermore, all Nether-Mages can use Blink to move to a random player, although it does not appear to be an aggro drop. They are vulnerable to sheeping and fear. They are immune to Hammer of Justice and Curse of Tongues.
With the exception of the channeled Rain of Fire none of their abilities appear to have cast times. However, they cannot cast while feared, and can be chained feared rather than tanked to prevent casting.
