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!

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

Fresh on the heels of our successes against Heroic G'huun and our reclear of Mythic Taloc, Vortex took on the second challenge of the Mythic Uldir raid: the Matron of Tenacity, Herald of Endless Research (M.O.T.H.E.R., henceforth referred to as MOTHER). MOTHER is a Titan construct designed to keep Uldir from falling completely to the pervasive corruption threatening it, and so puts you through your paces as she tries to burn away all the germs inconsiderate raiders bring inside her living space.

The fight is similar in nature to Heroic, except that when you move from room one to room two and from two to three, each role spawns specific adds DPS still spawn Remnants of Corruption, which have to be interrupted or stunned to stop their free casting, while the tanks crossing over the Defense Grid spawn Resistant Bacterium which buff the other spawns. The healers spawn Viral Contagion, which but a nasty de...
