  • The tank has to interrupt Patty Cake Icon Patty Cake.
  • Everyone must avoid the blue fox add that spawns regularly, and slow/stun it from range (Freeze Tag Icon Freeze Tag).
  • Kill the clone with the symbol that is different from the symbols of the other clones (Guessing Game Icon Guessing Game).
  • On Mythic, Mistcaller stays active during the clone phase, but does not take any damage until it is over.

  • On Mythic, interrupt the boss's Parasitic Pacification Icon Parasitic Pacification/Parasitic Incapacitation Icon Parasitic Incapacitation/ Parasitic Domination Icon Parasitic Domination casts, or kill the infester add on the player if the cast goes off.
