Adventure Guide

Flotsam emerged from the ocean depths to sate his hunger. The first to cross his path were the swamp murlocs of Shipwreck Cove, which Flotsam devoured by the dozens. Despite consuming most of their tribe, these creatures worshipped the giant as a god, and continued feeding him family and friends until the beast passed out. When he awakens, Flotsam will expand his menu to include everyone within the region.


As the fight progresses, Flotsam hurls Jetsam at random targets. Once the boss has full energy, he uses Getsam to damage all enemies and destroys any Jetsam on the field, inflicting additional damage to nearby targets. Flotsam also uses Yaksam to summon Regurgitated Marshstompers that will fixate random targets and continually spray Oozing Bile.
