  • Each obelisk can be seen on the dungeon map.
  • Entering N'Zoth's realm fades you into an alternate reality of the dungeon, blurring out the mobs and bosses in the dungeon.
  • A specific mini boss protects each different obelisk on the alternate reality side. Clicking the specific obelisk spawns only the boss that guards it, and the boss must be defeated to return to reality.
  • The most interesting part of the affix is that the boss spawns the void portal to go back to reality at the exact spot it dies, meaning you can essentially drag the boss past any trash packs or areas you wish to skip and kill it to return anywhere you decide, effectively allowing you to create unique skips and strategies to best handle the dungeon.
  • If you do not click an obelisk and defeat the mini boss, it will teleport in when you engage the final boss and become part of the fight.
  • Each mini boss provides a small amount of percentage towards your enemy forces total.
  • Much like Bwonsamdi in Season 2, you can find a Voice of the Corruptor N'Zoth fish that will allow you to take a buff that increases your damage, healing, and resets the Heroism/Bloodlust debuff upon timer expiration.







Patch 8.3 PTR - Vulpera Can Store Caravan from Racial Mount in Camp
The PTR allows Vulpera to click a backpack lying next to the campfire from their Make Camp racial to store the canopy part of their racial mount, effectively removing it until you click the backpack and request it back.

    the M+ affix name was recently changed to 'awakened'. So unless they swapped back suddenly, the Corrupted name might be a boo-boo

    Make your own groups, join a guild, it's a social game after all.

    It's just an affix anyway, nothing super special.

    Let's see if the new affix can actually reduce the dependency on shroud.

    Shroud will probably still be required for skips in the start of the dungeons before any "oblisk bosses" have been encountered.

    If you join a guild that plays according to your schedule, even the most backpedaling player will be able to join a 10 key with them. But the majority that are too lazy and can't socialize in an mmo will probably be met with harsher requirements.

    I mean, it's very few dungeons where the mob count is that generous that you can keep skipping trash tbh.

    Yes, it's mostly some of the more annoying pack that are in the start of some dungeons. For example, it's nice to skip the water elementals in the start of Shrine.

    And in King's Rest you will definitely "overkill" trash without skips

    Another step towards cosmetic customizations for mounts.

    Carries are stupidly expensive.

    They are also completely unnecessary. There are tons of people looking for groups all the time and it is so easy to just use your own key/group. It's really a minimum effort activity to make a group. No need to depend on invites from other people or pay for carries.

    Be your own boss! xD

    I love the change of velspura mount. I didn't like the roof.

    The affix hasn't been called Corrupted for over two weeks!
