Uu'nat, the Harbinger of the Void 

The Restless Cabal

Called from the depths to retrieve three relics of ancient power, the Restless Cabal is bound to serve N'Zoth and attent to his will. Zaxasj speaks of promises and power while Fa'thuul crushes their opposition with brute force.

Overview

Zaxasj the Speaker assails targets from range while Fa'thuul the Feared strikes his main target with powerful melee blows. 

Whenever one of the members of The Restless Cabal loses 25% of their maximum health, they empower and activate the nearest Relic of Power.

Empowering a Relic of Power unleashes its full magic and also activates Visage from Beyond Visage from Beyond or Eldritch Revelation Eldritch Revelation.

In LFR difficulty, Zaxasj and Fa'thuul ignore the Relics of Power they have already activated.

      Complete Azerite for the Alliance or Azerite for the Horde to get the first rank of the Essence.
      Major Power: Worldvein Resonance - Concentrate energy into the Heart of Azeroth, immediately causing 2 Lifeblood Shards to erupt from the nearby ground for 12 sec.
