Zek'voz can be accessed after Taloc and MOTHER have been slain.

Shortly after the Sundering, a dark messenger arrived on the fresh shores of Zandalar, intending to bring the newly isolated tribe into the service of N'zoth. Zek'voz was prepared to entice, bribe, cajole, corrupt, or simply kill them, but he was not prepared to encounter the defenses of Uldir. He was captured, studied, disassembled, and stored in the Titans' Archives, where he has waited for a chance to escape.



Zek'voz is a three-phase encounter in which the boss will move through different Old God mechanics as you progress through the fight. Through his phases the raid will need to handle abilities borrowed from C'thun, Yogg-Saron, and presumably N'zoth, while also dealing with add spawns and meeting position checks.
