Patch 8.3: Ny'alotha Raid Boss Names & Descriptions

Recommended Posts


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:


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.

      World of Warcraft players have organized a massive virtual protest in Oribos across multiple servers to support the Activision Blizzard walkout, protesting against the recent harassment allegations and lawsuit.
      Players have been logging out en-masse on live servers to support Activision Blizzard employees that participate in today's walkout protest. Here's how it looked in-game on some servers. Note that some of the posts have been edited and you must visit Reddit to view them.

      Thanks to Kalterast (Zul'jin) for the screenshot!

      About the Lawsuit
      Last week, The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing sued Activision Blizzard over "frat boy" culture. The lawsuit was filed after a two-year investigation by the state agency, according to Bloomberg.
      Since then, Blizzard President J. Allen Brack sent an internal email to Blizzard employees. The former CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Mike Morhaime later also came forward with his own statement.
      More than 1,000 current and former Blizzard employees signed an open letter, condemning the company's responses, and sent it to multiple publications.
      The World of Warcraft team released a statement yesterday and promised to remove references that are not appropriate to be removed from the game soon.
      Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick also issued a statement, where he called the company's initial responses to the lawsuit and employee concerns "tone-deaf." You can read the full statement here.
      Activision Blizzard employees have now responded to Bobby Kotick's statement via IGN and are organizing a walkout protest today.
      Here is their response:
      Activision Blizzard Employees' Response to Bobby Kotick's Statement
      On the evening before our employee walkout, Activision Blizzard leadership released a statement apologizing for their harmful responses to last week's DFEH lawsuit. While we are pleased to see that our collective voices -- including an open letter with thousands of signatures from current employees -- have convinced leadership to change the tone of their communications, this response fails to address critical elements at the heart of employee concerns.
      Activision Blizzard's response did not address the following:
      - The end of forced arbitration for all employees.
      - Worker participation in oversight of hiring and promotion policies.
      - The need for greater pay transparency and to ensure equality.
      - Employee selection of a third party to audit HR and other company processes.
      Today's walkout will demonstrate that this is not a one-time event that our leaders can ignore. We will not return to silence; we will not be placated by the same processes that led us to this point.
      This is the beginning of an enduring movement in favor of better labor conditions for all employees, especially women, in particular women of color and transgender women, nonbinary people, and other marginalized groups.
      We expect a prompt response and a commitment to action from leadership on the points enumerated above and look forward to maintaining a constructive dialogue on how to build a better Activision Blizzard for all employees.
      Today, we stand up for a chance. Tomorrow and beyond, we will be the change.

      If you have spare Anima, seek out Anima Exchange Specialist To'kul, a new NPC in Oribos that lets you exchange Anima for various goods.
      To'kul sells the following items for Reservoir Anima:
      Korthite Crystal Geode -- contains 5 Korthite Crystal and costs 25,000 Reservoir Anima. Shipment of Heavy Callous Hide -- contains 20 Heavy Callous Hide and costs 7,500 Reservoir Anima. Shipment of Elethium Ore -- contains 20 Elethium Ore and costs 7,500 Reservoir Anima. Shipment of Lightless Silk -- contains 20 Lightless Silk and costs 7,500 Reservoir Anima. This NPC must have been added to the game recently. Screenshot courtesy of absolis.

      The World Quest for Fathom Dweller is currently available on US servers. Check out how to summon Kosumoth the Hungering and get the mount!
      Here's how the mount looks like in the game.

      First, you must unlock the quest for it to become visible on the map. Below, we posted all the steps that you need to complete to unlock the quest for the mount.
      First, download a WoW Addon that shows you coordinates to figure out where you are and where you need to be. Something like MapCoords or TomTom will do. Head to Broken Shore 37/71 and talk to Drak'thul. Head to 57/52 and enter the Musty Cave. Click on the Mound of Dirt that is hard to notice. You will receive Weathered Relic. Return to 37/71 and talk to Drak'thul again and go through all his dialog options. Now comes the more difficult part. You must click on 10 Hungering Orbs in the exact order. If another player clicks on them, it takes approximately 20 minutes for them to become clickable again, so they have a cooldown. Here are coords for all the Hungering Orbs: Azsuna: 37/37: The first orb is located in a secret cave behind the tree. Stormheim: 33/75: The second orb is located in a cave where Kangaxx is. Val'sharah 41/80 Find another secret cave located inside a tree. The third orb is guarded by an Elemental.  Broken Shore 31/76: You will find an underwater cave that hides the fourth orb. Azsuna 59/12: Behind the crystals is yet another secret cave. The fifth orb is located on the ground next to a broken table. Stormheim 67/14: Near the underwater shark is a crevice that leads to a cave that contains the sixth orb. Try to avoid the steams, as they deal high damage. This orb may be the most difficult for you to get. Highmountain 52/36: Enter the Haglands and follow the path to your right. Above halfway down (55/36), you want to jump down to a ledge with a cave. Do not enter the first cave since it's a decoy. Instead, turn right and head to the actual cave to find the seventh orb. Azsuna 54/26: Under the bushes near a tree is another secret cave. The eighth orb is somewhat hidden, too, located in a bush near a pillar inside the cave. Broken Isles World Map 50/91: Find underwater wreckage to get through a secret cave. This one is hard to explain, so we advise you to check out MadSeasonShow's video (timestamp). You will find the ninth orb to your right. Broken Shore 37/71: Head back to Drak'thul and click the final orb on the table behind him. After you click it, the DANGER: Kosumoth the Hungering World Quest spawns at 46/49 on the Broken Isles World Map. Kill Kosumoth to receive Fathom Dweller. Note that you have a chance to get the Hungering Claw instead of the mount. It just so happens that the reward is the mount right now. Check out the video guide by MadSeasonShow for more details!

      Gitoff speed-cleared Torghast Layer 12 in 2 minutes and 56 seconds.
      While most players focus on getting a Flawless Score in Torghast, Gitoff tried something different and managed to kill the Floor 5 on the highest difficulty under 3 minutes on their Demon Hunter.
