Rokad the Ravager is a level 73 named elite darkhound in the Servant's Quarters in Karazhan. The Servant's quarters are located immediately to the right after you enter the instance from the main entrance.
Rokad only does straight up melee damage on the main tank, but does so a lot (about 1800 damage). The encounter is a straightforward tank and spank fight.
Most of the trashmobs in the room can be cleared before starting the bossfight. The only exceptions are the two dogs closest to him: they seem to be linked to the boss and pulling them will aggro the boss as well. [Edit - We body pulled the two hounds and did not aggro Rokad]
The random animal boss spawn seems to work like this: 1. Clear the area (boss hasn't spawned yet). 2. Start clearing the respawns. 3. Get the announcement by the spawned boss. 4. Clear the path to the announced boss. 5. Kill the boss - (confirmation needed on this) - Apr. 8
While Rokad does relatively strong melee damage to the tank, this encounter is essentially a "tank 'n' spank" fight; just DPS him down and heal as needed.
A warlock can enslave or banish the two dogs that aggro with him. They have a cleave that can hit for 2-3k and crit for over 7k. If enslaved and used against the boss, they can actually pull aggro away from the main tank. - July 2 07.
