Despite all his schemes, Wrathion could not avoid succumbing to the madness that claimed his father. With his mind corrupted by N'Zoth, the Black Prince is a force of unbridled hatred, capable of annihilating all who oppose him in blood and flame.
When the breaking of N'Zoth's prison unleashed his aqir across Azeroth, their dark prophets set about constructing an obsidian statue imbued with the void essence of the Old God himself. The moment Maut sprung to life it consumed the magic of its creators, leaving their corpses to rot beneath the scorching sun of Uldum.
Prophet Skitra is a master of twisting his victims minds, until they are unable to discern reality from the terrors he creates.
There are few who can resist N'Zoth's whispers, but those who do are doomed to fall under Dark Inquisitor Xanesh's wrath. A mastermind of torture, Xanesh prides herself on slowly peeling the sanity from of her victims until they have been carved into true worshippers of the Black Empire.

One of N'Zoth's more abberrant creations, Shad'har the Insatiable devours anything he can. Fed by slurry secreted from the walls of its domain, this ravenous beast is wracked in constant torment as the very thing that sustains him also causes radical mutations.

Vexiona amassed a following of lost souls desperate for power with the promise of being reborn in N'Zoth's image. High atop her temple within the Black Empire she transforms her most loyal servants with the power of the Void, creating a devoted army of unstoppable horrors.
Deep within the Black Empire, the Keeper's fate is revealed. Now corrupted by N'Zoth, Ra-Den works to make his master's vision of the Black Empire a reality.
After defeat in the Emerald Nightmare, Il'gynoth retreated to the depths of Ny'alotha. Here, he has merged with the very architecture of N'Zoth's plane. Spreading like a malignant tumor, Il'gynoth's corruption continues to feed on everything he touches.
A writhing mass of flesh, eyes, and tentacles ley like a mountain ahead. Tendrils of corruption and fear seep from the hulking body. This is the core of the Black Empire, the seat of N'Zoth's power, within the body of a god.
Despite being imprisoned deep beneath the waves by the titan-forged, N'Zoth's influence continued to corrupt Azeroth. Now, for the first time in millenia, the true form of N'Zoth the Corruptor is revealed. Unless he is stopped, the Black Empire will plunge Azeroth into an eternity of darkness.
With the awakening of N'Zoth, Shek'zara, empress of the mantid, pledged her swarm to the old god's will. In service of her dark master, she unleashed her forces upon the Vale of Eternal Blossoms to claim Pandaria in N'Zoth's name.

Sun King Nahkotep rules Amathet and commands its forces.With mastery over all of the sun's gifts, Nahkotep is both Amathet's highest Sun Priest and greatest of the Suntouched. None dare look directly at him, for fear they may be blinded by his brilliance.
I am loving the Pandaria content so so much!
Feels like we'll get a world boss for each of the assaults, 3 for Uldum and 3 for Vale.Really curious how those'll work, especially since the raid entrance to Ny'alotha switches between them. Guess that'll mean we always have at least one of the assaults up at a time.
Iooks like our tumor boy Il'gynoth's stint within the emerald nightmare was merely a setback :P
So wrathion is raid boss now?
Wrathion is mentioned in the Carapace overview.Think we have a Kalecgos/Cenarius situation with his fight.
The lack of Azerite gear confuses me..As a warrior, the first chestpiece that drops from the Raid is from Vexiona, the 8th Boss...So we'll probably have to focus on getting our Azerite gear from Titan Residuum
That N'zoth fight feels quite similar to the Yogg Saron one.
Please tell me we aren't straight up killing Wrathion. Blizzard, you realize that your fanbase LIKES dragons, right? I'm already mad at Cataclysm for making most dragons useless. Don't dig the hole even deeper, I was really excited about Wrathion being involved in the storyline.
I really hope the bosses aren't linear and locked behind each other considering how the loot is spread out. Melee 1h users get all their weapons from the first boss while casters have to wait for 3rd / 4th to get a chance at the first mainhand/offhand. It's going to suck for the guilds with slower progression.
Yet again no way for casters to get the perfect crit haste weapon combo without being blessed by rngsus
The loot tables seem to be quite far from completion as the currently listed bosses have only 5-11 items listed to them across all armor types and classes. In comparison, Abyssal Commander Sivara, the first boss of Eternal Palace, has 18 listed.
