Before engaging Evermaw, consider killing the cursed hozen swabbies at the sunken pirate ship south of Old Pi'jiu until the drops, then use that key to open the Sunken Treasure chest located in the stern of the ship. Inside the treasure chest is the , which provides a major swim speed boost and water breathing for 15 minutes. The swim speed bit is the important part, as Evermaw will not stop moving faster than base swim speed.
Evermaw itself will not attack people trying to kill it, so the encounter will not require any tanks or healers. However, players in front of Evermaw stand a chance of being Devoured and killed instantly if they get too close to its mouth. The whale shark will also not reset to full health if attackers drop combat by ceasing to attack or getting out of range. By default, Evermaw will "debuff" players with Timeless Rapids, which allows abilities to be cast while swimming. The whale also spawns floating white and purple clouds near its body. Players swimming through white clouds gain the stacking Timeless Rift buff, increasing damage and haste by 10% each stack for 15 seconds. The purple clouds apply Time Lock and will stun players for a few seconds.
Be aware: Evermaw swims in and out of the fatigue area surrounding the Timeless Isle. Melee classes in particular need to be careful not to be so caught up in doing damage that they die of fatigue.
