Viq'Goth is a kraken first encountered at Anglepoint Wharf, where Director Deepwarden and his followers summoned it in order to attack the seagate.[1] With the help of the Outriggers, an Alliance adventurer managed to repel Viq'Goth back into the sea before it could cause any significant damage to the gate. It was called forth again by Priscilla Ashvane during her Siege of Boralus.

Adventure Guide

Summoned from the depths by Lady Ashvane, Viq'Goth has devastated the harbor. Capable of pulling entire galleons to the crushing depths, this leviathan must be defeated before the Kul Tiran fleet is destroyed.


Kul Tiran Engineers need to be rescued from the wreckage to fix broken cannons. Once repaired, these cannons can be turned on Viq'Goth to inflict massive damage. Viq'Goth uses Call of the Deep to assault the fight space and uses Putrid Waters to inflict damage to random members of the party.
