Adventure Guide

The plague of corrupted blood killed countless trolls and began one of the most terrifying periods in Zandalar's history. The constructs within Uldir studied the disease in search of a cure, but found that only isolation and extermination was effecive. Unfortunately, as the facility's safeguards cracked apart, the plague was accidentally combined with a sample of G'huun's blood, creating a new entity that hungered for fresh victims.

Overview

Overview of tactics for the Vectis fight.

Vectis 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. Vectis will create multiple instances of Omega Vector at the beginning of the encounter.

Trivia

  • In the earliest alpha builds, Vectis was called Blood of G'huun.[1]
  • In an earlier beta build, Vectis' adventure guide entry read: "A sample of G'huun's blood, animated and run amok. Considered by the Titans to be an infection capable of killing every living thing on Azeroth, its primary disease strain was dubbed the Omega Vector."
