Uldir Boss Guides » Vectis Guide

Vectis is a boss in the Uldir raid in World of Warcraft. Our strategy guide will help you to defeat the Vectis encounter and the loot listing below contains all of the loot he drops on each difficulty.



Overview

Vectis is a fight consisting of two phases which alternate on a timer. This is a mostly single target encounter with occasional adds spawning.

Heroic Changes

  • The only Heroic change is a general increase in difficulty. There are no Heroic specific mechanics and abilities.

Strategy and Positioning

  • During Phase 1, the raid should be loosely spread on one side of the boss to make raid healing easier and removing the need to move with the Gestate dot.
  • Once players reach a few Lingering Infection stacks they should move to the other side of the boss to prevent further Omega Vectors from jumping to them.

Intermission:
  • Players should spread throughout the encounter area to make soaking Plague Bombs easier.
  • Keep a fair distance from the liquefied boss to make dodging Blood Geysers easier.

Strategies by Role


All Roles

  • Plague Bombs must be soaked by one player to prevent the spawn of an add.

  • Overview - Vectis creates instances of Omega Vector which bounce endlessly between players during the encounter. When Omega Vector jumps between players it leaves behind a stack of Lingering Infection, which has no duration and cannot be removed. Vectis will create multiple instances of Omega Vector at the beginning of the encounter.
