  • 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.
