A set of titan-themed Antorus trinkets seems to have some pretty spectacular ednboss-only secondary procs!
With 7.3.2 on the PTR there's been a lot of new discoveries, and the trinkets coming with Antorus: The Burning Throne are certainly among the most interesting. They are all titan themed and all have a standard proc and then an additional unique proc. While it's unclear when exactly this "Empowered by the Pantheon" effect occurs, it seems likely it's connected to a particular part of the Argus the Unmaker encounter (as per the Encounter Journal). Since these secondary procs are pretty insane stat wise (at least for now, you never know with PTR numbers) it seems very likely they will only be present during a part of the Argus fight, perhaps acting as a soft nerf over time for guilds, but they could also be present in the rest of the raid, we'll just have to wait and find out.
But enough fluff, let's take a look at the actual items!
So, what do you think about these pretty crazy trinkets and their potential use as tools to make the endboss easier?
New sound files have been added in Patch 7.3.2 and they are full of heavy spoilers revolving around Illidan and the fate of Azeroth after Argus the Unmaker has been defeated.
Our friends over at MMO-Champion have uploaded new voicovers for Aggramar, Aman'thul, Eonar the Life-Binder, Illidan, Khadgar, Malfurion and Tyrande that contain major spoilers, proceed with caution!
From the recently added Dungeon Journal entry of Argus, we learn that the Pantheon will be aiding us in the final battle against Argus. Eonar provides Gift of the Lifebinder, allowing players to resurrect during the encounter. Other perks in the encounter are Gift of the Sea or Gift of the Sky.
Illidan asks you to put some final matters to rest and deliver Alor'idal Crystal on his behalf. It holds messages for his brother Malfurion, Tyrande and you. After that you're supposed to place it atop Mount Hyjal upon the shores of the Well of Eternity. If you don't know what happens to Illidan after Argus is defeated, you can find more information here. Illidan, Malfurion and Tyrande received young models in Patch 7.3.2 that may be part of a flashback.
Now comes the real deal. Khadgar's new sound files reveal what's going on with Azeroth.
"The Legion is defeated, its master imprisoned, but in his final spiteful act, Sargeras may have doomed us all. Our world is wounded champion. Its life essence seeps out into the sands just as Magni foresaw. This mere drop of Argus' blood surges with incredible power, the might of a titan. If the blood of Azeroth also proves to be a source of such strength, those who seek to rule this world will stop at nothing to possess it. The days ahead may be dark indeed. For now, go to Silithus. Gaze upon the wound in the world with your own eyes. We will find a way to save Azeroth, I know it."
Remember Il'gynoth's quote "The king of diamonds has been made a pawn?" It all started with the Whispers of a Frightened World scenario. From the transcript it is obvious that the final titan is wounded. There's a new map with a giant wound (hole) in Silithus.
Below is a map of the Silithus Wound scenario.

Public Test Realms have been updated with Patch 7.3.2. The patch contains adjustments in preparation for the release of Antorus the Burning Throne raid.
The development notes are really short. There's no new content or features and Blizzard doesn't plan to post further development notes for future builds.
It's needless to say that there's a lot going on! Primal Sargerite can now be exchanged for various goods, Argus the Unmaker now has a Dungeon Journal entry, Legendary items can be upgraded to 1,000.
We’ve updated the 7.3 PTR with a new patch, labeled as 7.3.2. This patch is very minor, focused around updating a few of our backend systems as well as making some final adjustments in preparation for the release of the Antorus raid zone. There’s no new content or features in this update, and any other changes will be extremely light (in most cases limited to simply correcting tooltips to reflect hotfixes that are already live).
As such, we’re not planning to post regular development notes with future builds, but will post updates regarding raid testing as that process continues. Thanks, and happy testing!
Awoken Titan Essence allows upgrading of Legendary items to item level 1,000 when Antorus opens.
In July, we spotted Legendary items of item level 1,000. Players have been reporting the bug on live realms, but in Patch 7.3.2 a new item appeared that can upgrade Legendary items to Legion's max cap - ilvl 1,000.
The upgrade process is similar to how Legendaries have been upgraded throughout Legion (in Patch 7.2.5 with Stabilized Titan Essence, or Distilled Titan Essence in Patch 7.1.5).
In Patch 7.3.2, you'll need to collect 50 essences to receive Awoken Titan Essence and upgrade a single Legendary item to item level 1,000. Essences will likely drop in Antorus, the weekly Order Hall cache, emissary chests or Mythic Keystone caches. Crafted items should be of item level 1,000 by default when Antorus the Burning Throne opens.
Similar to the Blood of Sargeras vendor in Dalaran, a new vendor has been added to the Vindicaar in Patch 7.3.2. He offers various items in exchange for Primal Sargerite.
Maras can be found aboard the Vindicaar on Argus. For 1 Primal Sargerite, you can get one of the following:
10x Astral Glory 10x Empyrium 10x Fiendish Leather 10x Lightweave Cloth Uncut Argus epic gems cost 10 Primal Sargerite each.
