Bei dem ersten Schlachtzug in der kommenden Erweiterung “Battle for Azeroth” handelt es sich um den in Nazmir positionierten Komplex UIdir, der vor sehr langer Zeit von den Titanen als eine Forschungseinrichtung gebaut wurde und mittlerweile den Ursprung der in Zandalar wütenden Verderbnis darstellt.
Auch wenn die auf den Alphaservern spielenden Personen diesen Raid im Moment noch nicht besuchen dürfen, so listet das in dieser Testphase vorhandene Dungeonkompendium praktischerweise aber schon einmal die wichtigsten Mechaniken und Fähigkeiten dieser zukünftigen Encounter auf. Durch diese leider noch unfertige Übersicht können daran interessierte Personen schon jetzt einen Eindruck davon gewinnen, was für Bosse in Uldiar vorhandenen sind, welche Mechaniken diese Encounter verwenden und welche Rolle dieser Schlachtzug in der Geschichte des Addon spielt. Folgend findet ihr nun sowohl eine Übersicht mit den Fähigkeiten der in Uldir vorhandenen Bosse als auch Bilder zu den vorläufigen (unfertigen) Modellen dieser Encounter.   (Hinweis: Der Schlachtzug befindet sich aktuell noch immer in einer sehr frühen Entwicklungsphase. Aus diesem Grund sind derzeit auch nur 6 bon 8 angeblichen Bossen bekannt und die Encounter verwenden oft die falschen Modelle.)     Titan Keeper Hezrel: Bei Hezrel handelt es sich um einen Wächter der Titanen, der von Spielern in Nazmir gefunden und im Verlauf einer Questreihe repariert wird. Leider gibt es aktuell noch keine Informationen darüber, warum er als Encounter in diesem Schlachtzug auftaucht und was für Fähigkeiten er verwendet.       Red Queen: Dieser Encounter stellt das von den Titanen errichtete Sicherheitssystem von Uldir dar. Die Spieler dürfen die hinteren Abschnitte des Raids erst dann betreten, wenn sie durch die Dekontaminationskammer der Red Quest getreten sind. Fähigkeiten: Defense Grid: Passing through the Defense Grid inflicts 11700 to 12300 Arcane damage to all players and increases damage taken from Defense Grid by 100% for 6 sec. This effect stacks. Additionally, a Remnant of Corruption is summoned after 3 sec. Remnant of Corruption Clinging Corruption: Spreads a vile, clinging corruption to players within 10 yds, inflicting 9750 to 10250 Nature damage and an additional 5000 Nature damage every 1 sec for 5 sec. Cleansing Purge: Upon entering a room, the Red Queen begins a countdown to performing a full cleansing purge of all living matter within the space. Once the room has been purged it inflicts 30000 Fire damage every 1 sec to players within. Sundering Scalpel: The caster slices with a focused laser scalpel, inflicting 29250 to 30750 Fire damage in a cone in front of them, and increasing damage taken by Sundering Scalpel by 100%. This effect stacks. Purifying Flame: Vents within the chamber unleash jets of purifying flame, each inflicting 19500 to 20500 Fire damage to all enemies within 3 yards. Wind Tunnel: Massive air vents throughout the chamber open, moving players towards jets of Purifying Flame.         Fetid Devourer: Diese mehrköpfige Bestie scheint in dem Bereich von Uldir zu hausen, der für die Aufbewahrung oder die Entsorgung von Abfällen bestimmt ist. Zumindest verwendet dieser Boss viele auf Gestank und Müll basierende Fähigkeiten. Übersicht: Overview: Fetid Devourer engages players, storing up energy over time to unleash [Rotting Regurgitation]. Periodically, Waste Disposal Units around the room will activate, dumping waste into the room and leaving behind Corruption Corpuscles. Players must kill these before they release [Enticing Essence], or Fetid Devourer will move to them and [Consume Corruption], healing and gaining energy. At 50% health, Fetid Devourer will enter into a [Fetid Frenzy]. Tanks: The primary tank on Fetid Devourer will take more consistent – but overall higher – damage. As the secondary tank, stand nearby the primary tank so that you are targeted by [Terrible Thrash], and be prepared for large spikes of damage when it hits. Healers: The primary tank on Fetid Devourer will take more consistent – but overall higher – damage, and the secondary tank will take intermittent, high damage from [Terrible Thrash]. Be sure the secondary tank’s is near full health when [Terrible Thrash] is incoming. After players are afflicted with [Malodorous Misama], they will develop [Deadly Disease], which inflicts high damage and requires focused healing.

Interessanterweise erzeugen die Scheiben selbst mehrere in diesem Kampf auftauchende Mobs, die aufgrund des Hintergrunds von Uldir aus anderen Erweiterungen bekannte Diener der Alten Götter darstellen. Übersicht: Overview: Zol’thuum assaults players while the compromised Titan Discs come online, calling forth powerful Old God magics and summoning their lesser servants.

Stage Three: Corruption: At 30% health remaining Protocol: Corruption begins. A warped projection appears and shadowy whispers echo through the chamber. The magic released from the damaged Titan Discs appears to be unchecked and more than a mere demonstration of power… Overload: The damaged disc activates, increasing the frequency of [Titan Spark]. Orb of Corruption: A manifestation of N’Zoth’s power forms. Inflicts 10250 Shadow damage to all enemies every 10 sec, increasing with each pulse.

Die Titanen sahen diese Blutprobe als eine Infektion an, die das gesamte Leben auf Azeroth auslöschen kann. Übersicht: Overview: The Blood of G’huun 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. [Mutagenic Pathogen] is the source of new copies of [Omega Vector], with one [Omega Vector] being created whenever [Mutagenic Pathogen] expires from a player. Tanks: Make sure you are close to desirable hosts for [Omega Vector] targets when [Mutagenic Pathogen] fades. Hold the Blood of G’huun’s threat for as long as you can to prevent generating too many copies of [Omega Vector]. Healers: Targets afflicted by [Omega Vector] and [Gestate] will require heavy healing to survive. Help tanks survive several stacks of [Mutagenic Pathogen] as they try to minimize the number of [Omega Vector] jumping through the raid. [Lingering Infection] cannot be removed and does not have a duration, making it more virulent as the encounter goes on. Communicate with your allies to control each jump of [Omega Vector].

If no players are hit by the eruption, it instead inflicts 17100 to 18900 Shadow damage to all players.       G’huun: Der möglicherweise fünfte Alte Gott G’huun wurde von den Titanen in Uldir eingesperrt und diente ihnen einige Zeit lang als Versuchsobjekt für ihre unterschiedlichen Experimente.
