Illidan Stormrage is the final boss of the Black Temple in Shadowmoon Valley. As of Burning Crusade, Illidan is the most powerful in-game boss in World of Warcraft.

The encounter begins after a brief conversation between Akama and Illidan, after accepting a quest from Akama just outside of the encounter area. After the conversation, Illidan will immediately attack, and appears to focus on players first.

According to the "Shear" ability, it is apparent a tank rotation must be in order to prevent the current tank from being one-shotted from it stacking too much. With this in mind it is also safe to say Illidan will be immune to taunt.

Akama will participate in the battle during at least the earlier stages of the fight, and when close to death, will automatically drink a potion which restores his health completely. Though the amount of DPS he contributes seems to be negligible, it may be possible for patient players (either stealthed or deceased) to wait it out and watch Akama slowly tank Illidan down into the second phase or beyond.
