Patch 8.3: Ny'alotha Raid Boss Names & Descriptions

Recommended Posts

Tilo8xf.jpg

Here's a list with names and descriptions of the encounters found within Ny'alotha, the Waking City raid. Spoiler alert!

Based on the datamined entries, we will face a corrupted Wrathion and Ra-den. Il'gynoth is also back and the fight against N'Zoth is going to be very similar to Deathwing. First, we'll fight his carapace and then we'll deal with the Corruptor himself.

Other Patch 8.3 Content:

Quote

Wrathion, the Black Emperor - Despite all his schemes, Wrathion could not avoid succumbing to the madness that claimed his father. With his mind corrupted by N'Zoth, the Black Prince is a force of unbridled hatred, capable of annihilating all who oppose him in blood and flame.

Maut - When the breaking of N'Zoth's prison unleashed his Aqir across Azeroth, their dark prophets set about constructing an obsidian statue imbued with the void essence of the Old God himself. The moment Maut sprung to life it consumed the magic of its creators, leaving their corpses to rot beneath the scorching sun of Uldum.

The Prophet Skitra - Prophet Skitra is a master of twisting his victims minds, until they are unable to discern reality from the terrors he creates.

Dark Inquisitor Xanesh - There are few who can resist N'Zoth's whispers, but those who do are doomed to fall under Dark Inquisitor Xanesh's wrath. A mastermind of torture, Xanesh prides herself on slowly peeling the sanity from of her victims until they have been carved into true worshippers of the Black Empire.

The Hivemind - Generals of N'Zoth's aqir army, Ka'zir and Tek'ris are able to exert their will over the hive. Each feels they are the dominant leader and will wrest control from the other, changing the tactics of their minions.

Shad'har the Insatiable - One of N'Zoth's more abberrant creations, Shad'har the Insatiable devours anything he can. Fed by slurry secreted from the walls of its domain, this ravenous beast is wracked in constant torment as the very thing that sustains him also causes radical mutations.

Drest'agath - The great form of Drest'agath slumbered beneath the Black Empire, until she was awakened by N'Zoth's return. Now, she rises to the surface, like a great boil on the verge of bursting. Parts of Drest'agath have already broken the surface, threatening to spill her pestilence across Azeroth.

Vexiona - Vexiona amassed a following of lost souls desperate for power with the promise of being reborn in N'Zoth's image. High atop her temple within the Black Empire she transforms her most loyal servants with the power of the Void, creating a devoted army of unstoppable horrors.

Ra-den the Despoiled - Deep within the Black Empire, the Keeper's fate is revealed. Now corrupted by N'Zoth, Ra-Den works to make his master's vision of the Black Empire a reality.

Il'gynoth, Corruption Reborn - After defeat in the Emerald Nightmare, Il'gynoth retreated to the depths of Ny'alotha. Here, he has merged with the very architecture of N'Zoth's plane. Spreading like a malignant tumor, Il'gynoth's corruption continues to feed on everything he touches.

Carapace of N'Zoth - A writhing mass of flesh, eyes, and tentacles ley like a mountain ahead. Tendrils of corruption and fear seep from the hulking body. This is the core of the Black Empire, the seat of N'Zoth's power, within the body of a god.

N'Zoth, the Corruptor - Despite being imprisoned deep beneath the waves by the titan-forged, N'Zoth's influence continued to corrupt Azeroth. Now, for the first time in millenia, the true form of N'Zoth the Corruptor is revealed. Unless he is stopped, the Black Empire will plunge Azeroth into an eternity of darkness.

Bleah.    The Wrathion story feels wasted.    We were told he was so important, bleah bleah save the uncorrupted egg! etc in Cataclysm.    Then after Mists he vanishes, Blizzard replaces him with the "other" last black dragon in highmountain, and now he's just a random boss #239 in the raid, the end?      Hoping we'll be able to cure him or something for a future storyline but my expectations for lore and whatnot are at an alltime low ?

From the sounds of it, and while it's early so who can really say, but it does seem we'll be freeing him from the corruption and bringing him back

I really hope we don't just kill off N'Zoth. He's too interesting of an character to be removed in one raid. Heck, I'd say he ought to be the main boss of the next expansion. Why rush him into 8.3 with all this build-up. Though they probably have some plans for the next one, which is Death and that stuff, but N'Zoth and the Old Gods are such interesting lore. They ought to be praised so much more. Make them seem immensly dangerous, scheeming, clever and powerful. Don't get me wrong, they already built the Old Gods to be scary and powerful, but once one of them are free from the prison, make it a major thing, not just a patch and 'poof over'. N'Zoth is at full power now, which none of the Old Gods ever has been - that we've faced. I really hope we fail horribly at the raid in the end, and in turn, are given a choice: 

People can choose to follow N'Zoth, or they go back to the megafaction - Alliance and Horde. Of course no one will know that people choose to follow N'Zoth, cause then they wouldn't be able to go into major cities etc... would make some serious work for Blizzard to add another city just for those guys (me included, N'Zoth is love). 

Coming to think of it. A waaay more interesting plot-twist would be for some willing minds to join N'Zoth BEFORE the raid. This way, those players can all of the sudden work against their own 'allies' in order to prevail for N'Zoth. I have no clue how that would work mechanicaly though. Aaand it would reveal their true purpose... So yeah. But it would be so cool.

      The Solo Shuffle PvP Brawl fulfilled its purpose and Blizzard implemented solo queue for Rated Arena in Dragonflight. It would be really cool to see solo queue implemented for Rated Battlegrounds as well! Here's a screenshot of the new solo queue option taken from Reddit.

      With Shadowlands Season 4 in full swing, let's have a look at some Mythic+ tips that will make your runs easier!
      Season 4 Mythic+ Weekly Tip
      Happy Season 4 everyone! I hope you have had some time to dive into the new dungeons and experience them firsthand because if you haven't, this season is looking better than ever! This week we are going to discuss a few important details from each of the new (old) dungeons that you should pay attention to that will help you time your key regardless of the key level. So without further to do, let's begin!
      Operation Mechagon: Junkyard
      The most important thing in this dungeon is to get a Shock Bot on every member of your group as early as possible. This will allow you not only to be fast but also minimizes the risk of wiping. A few important things to know about the bots are that, first, they will be gone once you die, and second, the Shock Bot scales with Haste yes, that's right haste, so you might want to get the Haste Bounty just to bump up your Zap damage!
      Operation Mechagon: Workshop
      While fighting Kujo, there is a way to still keep DPSing during the Venting Flames, but it can be tricky. Below I have attached a clip of myself doing it the hard way (without a WeakAura), but nowadays there is a WeakAura that shows you once you are "safe" to DPS. The trick is to be on the edge of the box's corner; once you are there the boss "shows" you as safe and you can continue DPSing. This works not only for melee attacks but also for ranged, making it quite a useful tip to save some extra time, but be aware that if done incorrectly you will die!

      Return to Karazhan: Lower
      This will be one of the hardest dungeons to play, but here is a useful tip. When you fight Skeletal Ushers, you can line-of-sight Flashlight's damage, and it will deal nothing to you. In case you can't "LoS" it, you can always turn your back before the end of the cast; at least this way you will avoid getting disoriented, but you will still get damaged.
      Return to Karazhan: Upper
      During the Mana Devourer boss fight, you can let all the orbs go into the boss (whereas previously they needed to be soaked) since it never gets to full Mana and therefore doesn't cast Decimating Essence. If you soak the incoming orbs, do it for the Unstable Mana damage buff on your DPS players. Other than this, there is no reason to do so. It is uncertain if this is a "bug" or a new way the boss should be played, but hey, heads up!
      Grimrail Depot
      Once you enter Phase 3 with Nitrogg Thundertower — he has jumped out of his cannon — you can use the same cannon you used to damage him in Phase 2 to further damage him if you have the resources, with bombs, shrapnel, and ammunition. This way you can speed up the boss fight quite significantly.
      Iron Docks
      Once you fight Fleshrender Nokgar, you can use one of the fences to completely negate several of his abilities like Barbed Arrow Barrage and Burning Arrows, making Phase 2 a lot easier. Keep in mind this only works if you are a Ranged player or your class only relies on ranged attacks.

      Final Thoughts
      We plan to create weekly articles selecting 1 hot tip for you, every week, that is different than what we have in our weekly route section and will help you gain time on the chosen key. Keep in mind, that some of these tips might be temporary, or used until they are hotfixed, and if that happens we will always notify you in the comments below. With that in mind, enjoy the season and go get that Mythic+ score!
