  • Overview - Ivus the Decayed often uses abilities to attack several players at random and will retreat to the safety of his Petrified Bark when at low health.
    • Tanks -
      • Ivus will cast Plague Breath in your direction, leaving a Plagued Bog on the ground beneath you.
      • Fungal Bloom will leave a few clear areas on initial impact before spreading.
      • Plaguelings summoned while Ivus is Petrified fixate on players at random and cannot be controlled through threat generation.
    • Healers -
      • Hurl Blight will hit players at random.
      • Fungal Bloom will leave a few clear areas on initial impact before spreading.
      • Plaguelings will channel Devour on a random player until they are dispatched.
    • Damage Dealers -
      • Hurl Blight will hit players at random.
      • Fungal Bloom will leave a few clear areas on initial impact before spreading.
      • Ivus will remain immune to damage while Petrified. Dispatch all active Plaguelings to make Ivus end the Petrification.
  • Plague Breath - Inflicts 30 Plague damage to all enemies in a cone in front of the caster.
    • Plagued Bog - You take 30 Plague damage every second you remain in the area and your movement speed is reduced by 20%.
  • Hurl Blight - Hurls several boulders at random enemies, inflicting 30 Plague damage to players within 3 yards of their impact.
  • Shockwave - The caster slams the ground, sending a shockwave out in front of the caster that inflicts 30 Physical damage to all players caught in its path.
  • Fungal Bloom - The caster spreads plague throughout the land around them, causing several fungal blooms to grow rampantly. Standing in the blooms causes players to take 60 Plague damage.
  • Petrify - The caster enters a petrified state and calls forth a swarm of plaguelings to fight for them. While petrified, the caster is immune to all damage.
    Defeating all of the plaguelings will end the petrification effect.
    • Plagueling -
      • Devour - Each plagueling focuses on a random target, inflicting 10 Shadow damage every second.

Weekly Bonus Event - Arena Skirmishes

This Week: Arena Skirmishes
All week, from anywhere in Azeroth, open the Group Finder (default hotkey: i), select the Player vs. Player tab on the bottom of the window, and then under Casual, choose Arena Skirmish and JOIN BATTLE. You’ll be matched up with teammates and provided with opponents to kill in the Arena. You can also queue for a Premade group or create your own group within the Premade tab.

Look for the following all week long:

  • Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar and in Boralus has a quest for you–The Arena Calls. Or, if you forget to pick it up there, you can start it from within the Adventure Journal.
    • Quest requirement: Win 10 Arena PvP Skirmishes
    • Reward: A PvP loot box
  • Passive buff: +50% honor gains from Skirmishes

If you’ve been looking to make some Honor gains, this is the week to do it!

PvP Brawl - Warsong Scramble

Just like Random Battlegrounds, you’ll receive a reward for achieving victory.

Warsong Scramble – Capture the Flag
Do you have a flag? Warsong Gulch has always been the scene of an epic Capture the Flag battle, but what happens when you can capture your enemy’s flag without your own at base? Find out when you step into this PvP Brawl! We’ve also added a few more power-ups to the field of battle to stir things up a bit. To win, your team will need to be the first to capture 5 flags.

    I don't think Buzzkill is a cycle quest. I've only ever seen it the first time around per character.
