Once the proud leader of the Zanchuli Council, highest advisors to the kings of Zandalar, Zul was praised as the greatest of prophets. Now, the dark prophet has turned on King Rastakhan and would see a true troll empire rule the world once again, even if it means submitting to the blood god: G'huun.

  • Overview - Zul begins the encounter assisted by the Forces of Blood. He will continue to summon additional Forces of Blood that the party must contend with while his energy fills. At 40% health, Zul no longer summons the Forces of Blood and becomes fully empowered with the Blood of G'huun, unleashing Locus of Corruption, spending his Elder Blood to afflict the raid with Corrupted Blood for the remainder of the encounter. Players must defeat him before the damage from Corrupted Blood overwhelms them.
    • Tanks -
      • Nazmani Crushers use Thrumming Pulse when their energy is full. Make sure they are not within range of their allies!
      • Avoid melee attacks from Bloodthirsty Crawgs or use defensive abilities to reduce their healing from Hungering Maw.
      • Rupturing Blood will create a large area of Ruptured Blood when it wears off - make sure you are far away from other players!
    • Healers -
    • Damage Dealers -
  • Stage One: The Forces of Blood - Zul summons the Forces of Blood to defend him as he gradually builds energy over the course of Stage One.
    • Pool of Darkness - Creates a Pool of Darkness at a location for 20 sec. Periodically, the Pool of Darkness will explode in Erupting Darkness, unless a player is standing inside of it.
      Players standing in a Pool of Darkness are afflicted with Absorbed in Darkness.
    • Dark Revelation - Unleashes a Dark Revelation after 10 sec, dealing 75 Shadow damage to all players. This damage decreases with distance from the affected player. Additionally, a Minion of Zul is created near the player's location.
      • Minion of Zul - Minions of Zul fixate on players and cannot be tanked.
        • Unleashed Shadow - When killed, Minions of Zul inflict 15 Shadow damage to their killer every 2 sec. for 10 sec. This effect stacks.
        • Bound by Shadow - Absorbs 230 damage and increases damage done by 50%. Kills the target when removed.
        • Pit of Despair - When a Minion of Zul reaches its target, it causes a wave of terror, making players within 5 yards run in fear for 12 sec.
    • Shadow Barrage - Inflicts 20 Shadow damage to a random player.
    • Call of Blood - Zul forms allies out of the blood he has been gifted by G'huun, summoning the Forces of Blood.
    • Forces of Blood -
      • Blood Recall - When killed, the Forces of Blood will regenerate after a short period unless afflicted by Decaying Flesh.
      • Decaying Flesh - The instability of G'huun's blood magic suppresses Blood Recall for 10 sec, allowing the afflicted creature to be killed without regenerating. When removed, will jump to another creature of a different type.
      • Nazmani Crusher -
        • Bloody Cleave - Inflicts 0 Physical damage in a cone in front of the caster.
        • Thrumming Pulse - Increases the damage done by Zul and his minions within 0 yards by 50% for 40 sec. This effect stacks.
      • Nazmani Bloodhexer -
        • Congeal Blood - Congeals the ambient blood of G'huun into an Animated Ichor at the Bloodhexer's location.
          • Animated Ichor - Animated Ichors attempt to move to Zul. Upon reaching Zul, they will cast Ichor Transfusion.
            • Dripping Blood - Animated Ichor loses 1% health every 0.5 sec.
            • Ichor Transfusion - Transfers all of the Animated Ichor's current health to Zul, and instantly kills the Animated Ichor.
        • Bloodshard - Inflicts 37 Shadow damage to the lowest health player.
        • Sanguine Presence - If two Nazmani Bloodhexers come within 20 yards of each other, their Sanguine Presence will burst, healing all enemies for 10% every 2 sec.
      • Bloodthirsty Crawg -
        • Hungering Maw - Whenever a Bloodthirsty Crawg deals damage, they heal for 200% of the damage dealt.
        • Engorged Burst - The Crawg ruptures, killing it and inflicting 50 Shadow damage to all players every 2 sec. for 10 sec.
  • Stage Two: Zul, Awakened - At 40% health, Zul unleashes the energy built over Stage One by casting Locus of Corruption.
    • Locus of Corruption - Zul consumes all of his energy, applying one stack of Corrupted Blood to all players per 5 energy consumed.
      • Corrupted Blood - Inflicts 0 Shadow damage every 2 sec. This effect stacks and lasts until the end of the encounter.
    • Rupturing Blood - Afflicts targets in a cone in front of Zul with Rupturing Blood, dealing 18 Physical damage every 2 sec. for 20 sec, and creating a pool of Ruptured Blood upon expiration.
      This effect stacks.
      • Ruptured Blood - Creates a large pool of blood that periodically applies Corrupted Blood to any players inside it.
        • Corrupted Blood - Inflicts 0 Shadow damage every 2 sec. This effect stacks and lasts until the end of the encounter.
    • Deathwish - Fills a player with a Deathwish, causing them to walk towards the edge of the arena and jump off the platform to their death upon reaching it.
      When the player jumps, or when Deathwish is dispelled, Deathwish inflicts 35 Shadow damage to all players. This damage is reduced by range. In addition, several Minions of Zul are created.
      • Minion of Zul - Minions of Zul fixate on players and cannot be tanked.
        • Unleashed Shadow - When killed, Minions of Zul inflict 15 Shadow damage to their killer every 2 sec. for 10 sec. This effect stacks.
        • Bound by Shadow - Absorbs 230 damage and increases damage done by 50%. Kills the target when removed.
        • Pit of Despair - When a Minion of Zul reaches its target, it causes a wave of terror, making players within 5 yards run in fear for 12 sec.
    • Pool of Darkness - Creates a Pool of Darkness at a location for 20 sec. Periodically, the Pool of Darkness will explode in Erupting Darkness, unless a player is standing inside of it.
      Players standing in a Pool of Darkness are afflicted with Absorbed in Darkness.



Faction Leader Promos
Blizzard tweeted a couple promos for Battle for Azeroth that feature the faction leaders.



Mob Scaling Changes
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
We've just applied a hotfix that reduces the damage dealt by creatures between level 1 and 100 by up to 16%, and reduces their health by up to 24%. Until a subsequent fix (targeted for next week) to update clients with the new data, unit frames may not reflect the change in creature health, but combat should be faster and a bit less lethal across the board while leveling.

Thank you for your patience - we'll continue to monitor both logs and feedback closely, and will make further tweaks if needed.

    Looks the same as always. Also, she's a corpse.

    Victory for Sylvanas!

    i'm surprised there's no information about the nerf to Grevious.... it's now 7% at max stack instead of 10%

    Blizzard is trying WAAY to hard to promote this faction squabbling. It's cringe worthy at this point.

    You can still enjoy it!. No need to steamroll everything (it's not fun, I agree). Just unequip your gear and fight mobs while naked. Killing bosses will take much more time and the sense of pride and accomplishment will be back, once again :-)

    Appears that i missed the bus on how cool it is to use the term "Cringe Worthy" for every thing someone doesn't like

    That is one boring boss fight, isn't it?

    I even get the feeling I've already battled a boss like that in a setting similar to it as well.

    No spoiler warning for this ? Zul is big part of the horde side story.

    We knew since forever, that Zul is in Uldir. It's no spoiler.

    Well, I find cinematic Anduin extremely ugly. His in-game model looks much better. This whiny child is the new high king of the Alliance? Give me a break, and give me Varian back. Genn should have died there on Broken Shore, to save the High King. But this filthy dog always lets others to die for himself.

    What's with Blizzard's Orcs and Troll's fetish? So sick of them both.

    We literally had whole expansion without Trolls and Orcs.

    I don't wanna be one of those conspiracy kind of guys...

    But having an image of Anduin where people (I don't know why) decided to call him a crybaby, and give him a tiny quote - then have Sylvanas (who, for some reason, look like a girl who is really cross with her mother for not giving her what she wants) with a much longer, more interesting quote... It's like they are catching on that people don't like Lady Morallynas Greyrunner. >_>

    Raid bosses are kind of outside of any spoiler territory, since people need to know how to do the fights beforehand. If there's a cutscene or something, sure, that can be a spoiler. But the fact that a boss exists is not a spoiler. Also, the game itself tells you who the bosses are if you look at the dungeon journal at any time, so it's not like Blizzard tries to hide it either.
