Corrupted is the Season 4 Mythic+ Affix in Patch 8.3 Visions of N'zoth
Announced in yesterday's Vision of N'zoth Preview, Ion Hazzikostas announced the Season 4 Mythic Affix, Corrupted! This Corrupted Affix will allow players to make some interesting skips without the need for a rogue or invisibility.
With this Corrupted Affix active, when you go into a dungeon in Season 4, you'll see occasional Black Empire obelisks dotting the landscape. Interacting with one of these obelisks will pull you into an alternate world, where we see N'zoth's power ascendant and a powerful lieutenant of his stands guard. Defeating that lieutenant will return you to your regular reality, but will do so in whatever location you're currently standing when that miniboss is defeated. This will enable some interesting skips that don't involve Shroud of Concealment or Invisibility. Now of course, if you keep these minions alive and you decide to ignore them entirely, they may come and pay you a visit as you're fighting the final boss of the dungeon, so you'll want to strategize very carefully as you approach dungeons with the Corrupted affix in play during BFA Season 4.
The Obelisks will be located in certain locations around the dungeon. They appear to have a cast time to them, so you can't just hit them and instantly teleport. Will you be able to use the Obelisks in combat? Or can you use it to drop combat like
When you do teleport to the N'zoth's realm, it appears that you cannot interact with mobs in any way, except for N'zoth's lieutenant. From what we can tell in the video, we can see two abilities that happen when fighting the lieutenant.
Small Scarab adds will spawn and detonate with a green circle.
The boss casts some green, possibly venom ability.
If Battle for Azeroth's dungeons are anything to go by, these elite mobs will probably require interrupts, but whether or not you'll have to kill the scarabs, or dodge them will have to be seen on the PTR.
In Ion's description, he mentions that defeating the lieutenant will return you to the reality, but from the video clips, it actually looks like the death of the elite will spawn a portal that can be used for future skips. For example, a common pack to skip is the pack in front of Vol'kaal. However, if you kill a lieutenant to spawn a portal by Vol'kaal, you'd be able to portal in and portal out.
You'll have to learn the location of the obelisks but this affix can set up some very interesting routes. Do you like what we've seen about Corrupted so far? How do you think this compares to other Seasonal affixes?
