– A: Alien organism that can take over biological content and morph it into this strain

*Q: World bosses in the zone that drop cool loot? Like the mount?*

– End boss in the 5 player episode, some bosses in the event. The mount is acquired via reputation so you may need to kill some world bosses to quickly gain rep.
