After progressing through Vectis and Fetid Devourer, Vortex turned our sights on Zul, and even worse, the trash before Zul so that we could put work towards polishing off the final few bosses of Uldir. As is usual, there were several changes between Normal/Heroic and the Mythic form of this boss, and some of the changes are particularly unpleasant. The Pools of Darkness must still be soaked, and the Corrupted Blood you get from soaking them (Or the raid gets from you NOT soaking them) never drops through the rest of the fight. Additionally, all of the adds regenerate once killed, unless they are affected by Decaying Flesh. A wholehearted shoutout to our dispellers for handling moving this to the correct targets.

While many guilds have killed this fight by making use of numerous Sub Rogues to cheese the non-dying Crawgs for a single target damage buff on Zul himself, due to us not running a stacked co...

In fairly quick fashion, Vortex has downed yet another new boss, this time the mythic incarnation of Fetid Devourer.

The changes to this version involve a host of changes to abilities so riddled with alliteration that they seem a tribute to the memory of Stan Lee.

In any event, the "adds" that spawn (Corruption Corpuscles and Mutated Masses) appear in groups of threes that have to be coordinated down before the Fetid can slurp them down like a medpac. Additionally, the Malodorous Miasma and Putrid Paroxysm attempt to spread much more insidiously to all targets in range. The Fetid Frenzy remains constant, yet also alliterative.

After just a few nights on this boss, we managed to rack up a kill with our first pull of the night. Good work, team! T...
