With just a few nights of solid work, Vortex applied copious amounts of cleaning solution to the blood stain left by our most recent conquest, Vectis.

As with most bosses, Vectis incorporates the previously learned requirements for Normal and Heroic, and adds a twist. On Mythic, Vectis gives out 4 different Omega Vectors, meaning that 4 separate groups are needed to manage the spread of communicable and infectious diseases. This is paramount, as the stacking debuff Lingering Infection gains some new spice. At 6 stacks, players who continue to receive stacks of Lingering Infection spread AOE damage and put additional Lingering stacks on their neighbors. At 12, gaining additional stacks means you spawn an Engorged Parasite, which is in itself a terrible proposition. Should a player managed to reach 25 stacks without dying (No small feat in and off itself), they will cause raid wide damage and die in spectacular yet mockable...

Good day Vortexians! It is with great pleasure that I am here to announce the awarding of Battle for Azeroth's first round of lucrative and legendary awards: the Zappies! The Zappies are granted based on some completely arbitrary and/or fun criteria relevant to our first kill of each progression raid boss in mythic.

Our first round covers the encounter against one of the most elevated of the titan constructs within Uldir: Taloc!

The categories are:
  • The Do the Thing Award: This award is granted to the raiders who do the thing the best.
  • The Dodge the Thing Award: This award is granted to the raiders who dodge the thing the best.
  • The Avoid the Thing Award: This award is granted to the raider who has the highest avoidance tertiary... I mean who avoids the thing the best.
  • Pot of Greed: This magic card allows me to draw two more cards from my deck.

Without fu...

Vortex spent the last week and a bit reacquanting ourselves with the Zek'voz, this time in his mythic and final form. In this version of the fight, the Nerubian Voidweaver adds can additional bit of awfulness, requiring coordination of stuns and CCs. Additionally, the rings of Surging Darkness pulse 4 times in total, with fun yet frustrating patterns to avoid.

Good work, everyone. The Vortex Extermination Service moves onward to handle a leech next!
