wow Will We Fight Sargeras on Argus?

27 posts in this topic

Dev tweet implies he might be a boss in the Argus raid.


This twitter interaction cam up recently, where Creative Director/story and lore guy Alex Afrasiabi mentions fighting Sargeras...kind of. Now, we know we'll be dealing with the fallen Titan's avatar near the end of the Tomb of Sargeras, but this interaction is focused on Argus and the "man" himself.

This may just be general playfulness and an off-hand comment, but Blizzard could actually be aiming to "end" the Burning Legion story line with this expansion completely, in order to move on to the Old Gods and Void Lords. Since we don't really have any specific clues as to what bosses will appear in the Argus raid, and we're getting to re-kill Kil'jaeden in the Tomb already, there don't seem to be many candidates for the Argus raid endboss, unless it's just a re-re-do combo of Archimonde + Kil'jaeden.

So if Sargeras is showing up as the big bad at the end of Legion, what would be better: that he actually dies once and for all, ending the Burning Legion story line that's been the foundation for Warcraft, or that he's just defeated and retreats just like every other demon (and most important bosses, come to think of it) has done in the past?

20 mortals, well-armed or no, should NOT be able to take down a demigod.

He's in fact much more than a demigod. The titans are on the same "level" as the old gods. The old gods are created from void, while titans come from the light. There are no mightier entities than those two. I agree though that he's much more powerful than any group of mortals. I suspect (if he really is the final boss), he will just be imprisoned again. Hopefully behind some stronger "bars" :)

In a way, it does sort of make sense to fight Sargie despite the inherent silliness of us being able to so much as dent him.

If\when we successfully kill or re-banish him... there really isn't anyone or anything else that can keep the OG's in check.  Sets up the next expansion pretty cleanly. 

Also Jaina is Queen Azshara.

Actually, the titans are neutral. Naaru are the equivalent of void lords and said void lords are afraid and jealous of the titans, that's what prompted them to create the old gods and send em to find a baby titan to corrupt. As for greater beings, the one that towers above everything else in warcraft universe is by far Elune, probably being the only god, actual god. She created the light, the void and all that stuff or at least she was already there when everything came into existence.

Titans are not "neutral". They are the void lord equivalent for the arcane. Void lord= shadow, Naaru= light , Titans = arcane, Demons=fel, wild gods = life

I'm pretty sure that vowing to eliminate fully 1/2 of the known universe means you aren't neutral.

Erm, not sure what you mean here, wasn't it just Sargeras that decided to go full retard and start destroying everything and the Pantheon was against it so he murdered them?

Or do you mean just their general opposition to the Void Lords?

Also, I don't think I can hate anything more in the lore than I hate the new Elune. They couldn't make her a titan since they decided that they were all dead, wrote themselves into a corner but NOPE, hey she's something TOTALLY different you guys, you don't even KNOW!111 The whole lore thing is really becoming a clusterfuck because they did the usual shit writer thing of retconning instead of connecting existing lore (although it all started way back in BC with the whole eredar/dranei thing so it's not like it matters in the slightest).

Well, I think that IF we get the finally fight thr true Sargeras, it will be with some sort of gimmick during the fight, like having aid from a higher entity like the Naaru and/or possibly the Watchers, if not the entire resistance against the Legion so it becomes a cinematic battle. Let's not forget that the Pillars will play a pivotal role in this expansion, so probably they will be playing a role in the final battle too. And there is also Illidan reborn, which is said to be final hope against the Legion.

Yep, I expect that we'll be seeing Gullidan at the end of the Big Climactic Battle Sequence.

It was just Sargeras, but the whole thing was kicked off by the Pantheon sending him out to seek and destroy Old Gods everywhere in the universe.  Once he went full Simple Plan, then yeah he was just being a loon.  EDIT: Also, not all the Titans were opposed to the idea.

I honestly don't know much of anything about Elune lore-wise; I assume she's an Old God of some sort (I'm also not convinced that the Naaru and 'the light' are the good guys here).  

Is it just me or do the X'era cutscenes look ripped wholesale from FF14's Hydaelyn\Ascian bits?

Blizzard changed so many things about the lore through the years that I wouldn't be surprised if they found a way to make him weak and then create a new ennemi never seen before much more powerfull than him...

Let's not forget that Azeroth itself is a titan, just one that has not "matured into being" so to speak.  It could be that a victory over Sargeras requires the Pillars to in essence "wake up" Azeroth for this final fight.  I'm probably reaching but this would tie in lore without having Blizzard back themselves into a "retcon" corner.

I can't see them waking up Azeroth just yet.  That is what we will likely do during the Old God expansion, where we have to battle N'Zoth, Queen Azshara, and possibly the resurgence of the Black Empire.  Who, once defeated, will free the world of Void Corruption and (stretching) prove that "life" is capable of defending itself against future corruption.  The "birth" of Azeroth will be the end of WoW - a new titan to protect the universe; one more powerful than Sargeras, and with full knowledge of the Void Lords and how to defeat them.  I can see them using Shadow Priests and Warlocks to reveal the full Void plot, through class-quests; since both classes tap into the power of the Void.

I doubt we will fight anything but an avatar of Sargeras.  Even with a massive amount of support from a wide variety of characters, the battle would be incredibly one-sided, if we were to face the true Sargeras.  The Legion will be destroyed on Argus.

Interestingly, everyone says that we mortals can't deny Sargeras, but let's not forget the heroic sacrifice of Broxigar. The weapon he wielded may well have been born of the powers of Cenarius, but he alone managed to injure Sargeras, as he stood atop a mountain of slain demons.

 

Now, champions of the mortal world wield more powerful weapons than ever before, many of them even used by the Legion.

 

I don't think the denizens of Azeroth have ever been more prepared to finally put a stop to Sargeras' Burning Crusade! And the Void Lords are the real threat that's been hidden from us this whole time. We'll have to be far stronger to defeat them.

He only made a small dent on his body, and since then the power of the Titans has been changed. In the novels, the Old Gods would be more powerfull than Sargeras if set free, but in the new version stated in the chronicles book we know that a titan can easily defeat an old god just by grabbing him.

I don't think Azeroth's awakening will be the end of WoW or Warcraft, I think it'll happen sooner rather than later. They'll just do the usual thing of her awakening, helping us out with something (maybe defeating Sargeras or later defeating Old Gods) thus expending her energy or whatever fluff thing they go with and then going back to hybernation because she isn't ready to awake just yet. Personally I'd bet money on us fighting some iteration of Azeroth titan in the next xpansion that's being corrupted by the Old Gods and the only way to save her is be doing 15 billion damage to something or other.

I expect we will fight Sargeras in some form at the end of this expac. Blizzard made it pretty clear that they were wrappin up all burning legion stuff with this expansion. Now, the question at hand though is how we are "fighting" him. So because of some spoilers we know certain peeps are traveling with us to argus. So imagine almost an Archimonde type deal where there are big named NPCs "helping" us. As far as actually killing Sargeras I imagine more we'll weaken him and end up sealing or imprisoning him or something old school style. Even then the order hall naaru questline really points at army of light stuff, so it may be we weaken him and a Naaru or the army of light or something will get the killing blow.

So yes we will fight sargeras, yes he will be finished off/dealt with, but no we won't get killing blow, some npc will and sargeras will be banished, purified, something like that.

I do wonder if there is some way that Sargeras could be held accountable for what he has done by the remnants of the Pantheon? Maybe there is some part of them still left or something that helps us.

Pretty sure the titans are All The Way Dead, but the celestials (Algalon... Harbaron?) should still be around.  Not to mention Magni and whatever else Ilgy was on about.  We'll definitely have big time allies if it comes down to that.

Edit: And the Keepers, can't forget about them.  Not that I'd want Mimiron on my side.

Yeah, there's no way they're going to allow us to be the ones to actually kill him. It'll be Dragon Soul-style again. He gets weakened, we then help some big guys, they end up killing him.

Sounds about right.  Although they've never actually given any sort of insight at all about what's required to actually kill a Titan or an OG - the lore just says 'an old god and titan died but no history was recorded' etc etc etc.

      Following Blizzard's announcement that Destiny 2 would be exclusively available via the Blizzard app, caused prices of WoW Tokens to reach an all-time high in both regions.
      The last time we witnessed WoW Token prices spiking was when Blizzard launched the WoW Token to Battle.net Balance exchange.
      Europe
      Token prices are slowly going down, but in Europe they spiked at 251,000 Gold for a single token.

      North America
      America didn't see such a dramatic increase. Just a little above 140K Gold for one token.

      To stay up to date with latest prices, don't forget to follow WoWTokenNA for North America or WoWTokenEU for Europe.
