Carapace of N'Zoth is an encounter in Ny'alotha, the Waking City in which the Fury of N'Zoth is fought.

 [Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve] is mandatory for this encounter. If you do not have the cloak, you'll immediately be charmed at the start of the boss fight and your raid group will have to kill you.

Adventure Journal

At the center of Ny'alotha stands a dread mountain of flesh, teeming with eyes and tendrils of unfettered corruption. Madness itself seeps from the writhing mass, eroding the sanity of all who approach it. This is the heart of the Black Empire, N'Zoth's seat of power, the body of a god.

Overview

N'Zoth rallies his physical defenses, retreating deeper into his carapace at 50% and 50% health. Players' sanity balances tenuously throughout the encounter. Wrathion allows players to utilize their [Experimental Blacktalon Shroud] to recover from Wrathion's [Anchor of Sanity]. Losing all sanity grants [Gift of N'Zoth], then transforms a player into a [Servant of N'Zoth]. Players lose access to Wrathion's aid in the final stage.
