General Information

On this page, you will find a list of changes between Normal/Heroic modes and Mythic mode, as well as a working strategy to defeat Zek'voz, Herald of N'Zoth in Uldir in Mythic mode.

The other pages of our Zek'voz, Herald of N'Zoth guide can be accessed from the table of contents on the right.

1. Mythic Mode Abilities

1.1. Ability Changes

1.1.1. Titan Discs

The Titan Discs that determined which abilities were active during Phase One and Two in Heroic and Normal difficulties are now always active. This means that when adds spawn, both Silithid Warriors and Nerubian Voidweavers will appear, as well as Zek'voz alternating between applying Roiling Deceit Icon Roiling Deceit and casting Eye Beam Icon Eye Beam.

1.1.2. Surging Darkness

Surging Darkness Icon Surging Darkness now explodes slightly faster, in non-sequential order, and will happen four times instead of three.

1.1.3. Eye Beam

Eye Beam Icon Eye Beam now fires after 1.5 seconds instead of 3 seconds.

2. Strategy

The Mythic strategy is going to essentially be the same as Heroic, however positioning will matter more. The raid is going to want to have a loose stack near Zek'voz. Players afflicted with Roiling Deceit Icon Roiling Deceit should run it to the far end of the room, near where Zek'voz spawned. When Eye Beam Icon Eye Beam is about to go out, the raid needs to spread out so as not to chain the beam onto anyone else. It is important to note that Eye Beam will happen at the same time as the second Surging Darkness Icon Surging Darkness, so the raid must be especially careful to maintain their spread during this combo.

When the adds spawn, make sure that the two Nerubian Voidweavers near the entrance are crowd controlled, while the boss is stacked up with the one near the other end of the room. Have the Silithid Warriors funnel in towards the active Voidweaver and AoE them all down together before moving on to the next add.

For Phase Two, Zek'voz will stop spawning adds, but will continue to use Eye Beam Icon Eye Beam and Surging Darkness Icon Surging Darkness. Classes with immunities need to be ready to catch the Orb of Corruption Icon Orb of Corruption if it looks like its going to land in a Surging Darkness Icon Surging Darkness.

3. Bloodlust/Heroism/Time Warp

We advise you to use Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust/Heroism Icon Heroism/Time Warp Icon Time Warp in the final phase to help with healing from the increased number of Titan Spark Icon Titan Spark casts (due to Overload), as well as to synergize with Corruptor's Pact Icon Corruptor's Pact buff that will be spreading through the raid.
