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!

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...

After putting the band back together and re-figuring out our paces, Vortex polished off Heroic Uldir! Like many other guilds, we actually polished off Mythic Taloc before Heroic G'huun, as Taloc is so much like heroic as to make it fairly trivial (A few more beams, a spread out and a soak mechanic, and tank swaps actually being required). The fight is made significantly easier with the availability of Spellwarding/Bubble to ignore the soak mechanic, but even without it we recleared in short order.

The Italian dinner that is Heroic G'huun was much more worthy of mention as we worked hard to avoid sharing our meatballs (Explosive Corruption) with the rest of the raid, and learned to effectively dodge pepperonis (Malignant Growths).

Good work, team! More work on Mythic MOTHER awaits!
