Epicus Maximus is a legacy encounter in the Brawler's Guild and requires the use of a challenge card to fight. The group is also found on top of the water wall in Nazjatar.

The party is composed of:

  • Epicus Maximus, a level 90 elite flying shark equipped with two rockets and a laser beam.
  • And a Dinosaur, a level 60 rare elite devilsaur. He rides on Epicus Maximus's back.
  • ROCK ON, a level 85 elite Forsaken with the  [Arcanite Ripper], identical in appearance to Bergrisst. He rides on And a Dinosaur's back.

Epicus Maximus can also be seen flying close to the edge of the waterfall near Bloodfin Village within Nazjatar and out into the ocean.

Beta appereance

Epicus Maximum at the Maelstrom.

During the Cataclysm beta, Epicus Maximus, the Paragon of Epicosity, could be found circling the Maelstrom in front of Thrall and Aggra. The shark-dinosaur-Forsaken combination appeared in the Maelstrom after hearing that players considered the area not epic enough.[1] The trio was removed before Cataclysm went live, but made a cameo in the Uldum zone, where the  [Holographic Projector] used to subjugate some cursed engineers will sometimes display the trio and play some epic background music.

Mousepad

An official mousepad of the Epicus Maximus trio illustrated by Greg Capullo was produced by SteelSeries for sale exclusively at BlizzCon 2011.[2][3]

Product description: Have Epicus Maximus, the mythical creature from the Cataclysm Beta, beneath under the palm of your hand! This epic-sized gaming QcK+ mousepad from SteelSeries will be premiering at this year's BlizzCon, available only while these supplies last. Guaranteed to be a collector's item!

Trivia

  • The laser beam attached to the shark's head is likely a homage to the movie Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, which had the film's antagonist furious that he couldn't acquire "frickin' sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads". Or Austin Powers: Goldmember where the film antagonist's son actually gets him "Sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their frickin' heads."
