Will We Fight Sargeras on Argus?

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.

      With 7.3 on the horizon, Blizzard did an official preview of new caster animations with videos and developer comments.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With patch 7.3 on the horizon, we thought it was time to share some updates to combat animations for several casting classes. Similar to what we did with the melee classes at the launch of Legion, these updates are all about priests, mages, Restoration and Elemental shaman, and some additional refinements to Restoration druid casting animations! We’re also continuing to work on even more enhancements for additional classes at a later point in development.
      A little over two years ago, we set our sights on revamping combat animations. The team has wanted to renovate it somehow, but what exactly does that mean? To determine the answer, our development leadership put together a small group of people to come up with a prototype of what we thought could use some cleaning up. You are currently experiencing the fruits of this work with the new melee animations. Our final goal was to create new melee moves that would make the game feel better, but not change how the game was played. During this prototype phase, we also came up with a plan for casters, but didn’t have time to put it into production until now. Let’s dig into some of the things we did.
      We hope you enjoyed this behind-the-scenes look at the new caster visual updates. We had lots of fun creating all these animations and effects and look forward to hearing your thoughts on them.

      In Patch 7.3, Blizzard will be increasing the difficulty and rewards from dungeons across the board. The changes help keep dungeons relevant even at the end of the expansion.
      The following changes will be effective when Patch 7.3 goes live:
      Normal Difficulty
      Item level 845 (up from 825). Heroic Difficulty
      Item level 865 (up from 845). Mythic Difficulty
      Item level 885 (up from 865). Mythic Keystone
      Loot item level will be increased only after Antorus the Burning Throne raid opens. World Bosses
      Loot from old world bosses remains at 860. Loot from Broken Shore world bosses remains at 900. Loot from Argus world bosses in Greater Invasion Points is at 930.
    • By Stan

      Our returing player guide is stuffed with relevant information for players that haven't played WoW for a  while and they'd like to give it a go in 7.3.
      If you haven't played WoW for a while, we have a guide for you with all relevant information.
      The main goal of the guide is to keep it short and simple.
      General Tips
      In Patch 7.3, the 3rd relic slot will be unlocked immediately once you reach 110 and there's no need to complete individual campaigns all over again. (Source) You can forget about the Broken Shore content. Artifact Knowledge is now shared. All player start at AK Level 41 and will automatically gain 1 AK Level per week. Only one new Legendary item is added in 7.3. Any player that defeats Argus the Unmaker can get Insignia of the Grand Army. It's rewarded from the quest called The Death of a Titan. More details about the Netherlight Crucible can be found here. Two new factions are added in Patch 7.3: Argussian Reach & Army of the Light, both having new emissary quests. A new Heirloom with an interesting affix was added to the game.  Man'ari Training Amulet. Sacrifice 10% HP to gain 40% increased movement speed for 10 seconds. There are no plans to enable Draenor flying for those that haven't unlocked Draenor Pathfinder. Patch 7.3 Content Rollout
      Not all 7.3 content will be available on day 1.From the latest developer Q/A, the content rollout should look like this:
      Week 1
      Krokuun and the first two chapters of the Argus story will unlock.   Players will be able to unlock Krokuun World Quests. Week 2
      The second Argus zone Mac'Aree will become available and with it the third and fourth chapter of the Argus story. Once you progress through those chapters, you will gain access to Mac'aree World Quests, Kil'jaeden's Terrace World Quests and Western Mac'Aree World Quests. Invasion Points will also open. Week 3
      The last week marks the opening of Argus's last zone, Antoran Wastes. Players will gain access to Antoran Wastes World Quests, the Netherlight Crucible and the new dungeon - Seat of the Triumvirate. All you need to know at this point is that Argus has three zones and once you finish the story in each zone, you will gain access to world quests.
      Reputation Catch-up
      We datamined two Bind-to-Account items related to reputation catch-up with Broken Isles & Argus factions. Sources remain unknown for now. Nathrezim Tome of Manipulation increases rep gains with Broken Isles factions by 200% for 2 hours. The item's intended for alts and doesn't work past level 109. Demon's Soulstone can only be used on Argus and the item increases your reputation standing by 1,000 with all factions. It's good for catching up reputation with the Nightfallen. Gear Catch-up
      New Relinquished items are being added in 7.3 with a base item level of 910. (Source) All items can be purchased for 650 Veiled Argunite (a new currency from Argus World Quests). Crafted gear is now ilvl 885 and can be upgraded with Primal Sargerite via Primal Obliterum up to item level 935. Old crafted gear can't be upgraded.You can disenchant it into Chaos Crystal. There's a new shoulder enchant on Argus that will help you farm Primal Sargerite. More information can be found here. Dungeons have had their ilvl increased by 20 item levels on every difficulty. Normal: ilvl 845 (was 825) Heroic: ilvl 865 (was 845) Mythic: ilvl 885 (was 865) World Quest rewards scale up to item level 895. (Source) With the introduction of the Netherlight Crucible, you can now target specific relic types. Antorus the Burning Throne
      The raid won't open immediately with 7.3, but at a later point (probably in Patch 7.3.5). Once Antorus opens, Legendary items will have a base item level of 1,000. (Source) For more information about Patch 7.3, check out our Argus hub.

      We're going back to Antorus to test some more bosses starting Thursday, and it's all Mythic all the time this week! We also get the first wing of LFR starting Friday.
      August 17-21 (source)
      On Thursday, August 17th and Friday, August 18th we will be conducting raid tests of Antorus, the Burning Throne. Once testing has concluded on Friday we will be testing the first wing of Raid Finder difficulty over the weekend.
      Thursday, August 17th
      Portal Keeper Hasabel - Mythic Antorus, the Burning Throne
      13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST)
      Eonar - Mythic Antorus, the Burning Throne
      14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)
      Friday, August 18th
      Imonar the Soulhunter - Mythic Antorus, the Burning Throne
      13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST)
      Varimathras - Mythic Antorus, the Burning Throne
      14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)
      Friday, August 18th - Monday, August 21st
      Light's Breach - Raid Finder
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a PTR environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade Sr. in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)
      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players' effective level to 110 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.
      Q: How long does testing last?
      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we're satisfied that we've received that information for a given boss, we'll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.
    • By Beautyman
      Oi, mates! Let me just briefly introduce me and this guild. My name is Beautymen and I have been playing ever since WoTLK. During this great expansion I was heavily involved into raiding on Quel'Thalas. Ever since I left these days behind the sensation of raiding and progressing has been tickling my sensitive parts. Therefore, when Legion launched I came back to play with my mate Kraishan and we founded Mythic Busters.
       
      What is Mythic Busters?
      Our guild, Mythic Busters, is a friendly bunch of people from all around the world who are looking to get into raiding. Especially, when you have been gone from the game for some time, you might have lost your raiding mojo and find it hard to be re-introduced.
      This guild offers you the chance to start raiding again in Legion through a fun and relaxed way. No hard requirements, just fair and square play. We have several divisions within the guild to cater to different players. For instance, we run Mythic+ to gear up new players and currently we are building progress and farm runs through the newest raids.
       
      What makes raiding different with you guys?
      Good question, me. Well, if I might be so egocentric as to say that first of all: I believe we have created a great atmosphere within our guild. I, as a raid leader, try to entertain the raid group on Discord by keeping our nights social and fun.

      Sounds great. When do you raid?
      Right now we raid on Wednesdays and Sundays from 7:30PM (invites) till about 11:00PM server time. These raids are currently focused on ToS HC progression. On Fridays we also run a normal mode farm for alts/lowerer geared members.
       
      Awesome. Who are you looking for?
      We accept any and every social player who is either experienced or new to raiding. Just be a chill or dude or dudewoman! And of course, ready slash willing to learn.
       
      You sold me at dudewoman! How do I join?
      Feel free to respond underneath this post or whisper me ingame (Beautymen-QuelThalas or Beautyman#2868).
