Tomb of Sargeras - Chamber of the Avatar

Recommended Posts

tWhVjoV.jpg

The third LFR wing of the Tomb is now available for testing and has two bosses - Maiden of Vigilance and the Fallen Avatar of Sargeras! We uploaded videos of the encounters for preview.

Before you continue reading the article, please note that these videos may contain lore spoilers.

Chamber of the Avatar

Aegwynn sealed away the defeated Avatar of Sargeras deep beneath the Tomb, but that fearsome husk now begins to stir...

Encounters

Maiden of Vigilance

  • Charged by Aegwynn to defend the Tomb of Sargeras, the Maiden of Vigilance has stood watch for hundreds of years. Yet, the guardian did not foresee what effect that avatar's seeping fel energy would have on this titan construct. Slowly warped by this maleficence, the Maiden now seeks to destroy any in her path.

Fallen Avatar

  • When Aegwynn defeated the Avatar of Sargeras, she was unable to destroy his avatar. In an effort to seal it away, the armor was entombed beneath the Temple of Elune, where it remained dormant for hundreds of years. Now, with the Legion tearing down the tomb's barriers, Kil'jaeden is in a position to reanimate the armor and unleash its power on Azeroth.

Loot Information

  • Item level 875+, Fallen Avatar drops Tier 20 shoulders.

Maiden of Vigilance

Make sure to watch the video until the end, where you can see awakening of the Fallen Avatar.

Honestly, I was expecting so much more from this fight...

It looks extremely repetitive and lacks the grandeur that should come from battling the avatar of the most powerful titan.  There was an opportunity here to create a unique fight, one that is both memorable and challenging.  What I see lacks in imagination and creativity.  This is "The Destroyer, The Fallen, The Dark Titan, The Demon Lord, The Great Enemy of All Life, The Destroyer of Worlds, and The Lord of the Burning Legion."  In my eyes, this looks like just another run-of-the-mill boss fight.

 

I have been anticipating this encounter since it was hinted at, in The Burning Crusade (2007); every since I looted my first "Mark of Sargeras", at roughly level 68.  To have waited ten years for a "basic" encounter is not just disappointing, but unforgivable.

 

I realize that this is just the LFR version of the fight, but it still lacks the mechanics and scope that I would have expected from what was supposed to be an epic battle.  Am I missing something?  Am I just too close to this to see some obvious oversight?

      We're previewing Gargan mounts coming in the Shadowlands expansion.
      Shadowlands Alpha game files contain two types of Gargan mounts. The first version is without armor, whereas the second one has armor and looks like an upgrade of the first one. We have no clue where to get these mounts right now, as no mount sources have been added yet on Alpha. The Gargan mounts come in four tints: black, purple, red, and white.

      The unusual raid compositions are hardly surprising this late in the expansion cycle, and we're looking at the Fire Mage raid that burned Dresta'gath in 22 seconds in more detail.
      Method cleared Heroic Ny'alotha with 29 Mages and it took them 87 minutes to kill all bosses including N'Zoth. It's worth noting that they also brought a Demon Hunter for Chaos Brand that increases magic damage taken by 5%. The raid was lead by Scripe.
      Logs
      The raid group was super quick to blast through Ny'alotha. They managed to defeat 5 bosses in under a minute. The longest fight was N'Zoth and it took them a little over 6 minutes to kill him. After that, they decided to kill Wrathion again on Normal difficulty. Full logs are available here.

      Next, we're looking at all boss encounters in more detail, with VOD always starting at the beginning of the fights.

      Wrathion Kill
      Wrathion died in just 31 seconds, but the raid experienced lags during the encounter, possibly because of all the Pyroblasts hitting the boss.

      Maut Kill
      It took the group 37 seconds to burn down Maut with continued lags throughout the encounter.

      Prophet Skitra Kill
      The lags have finally stopped with Prophet Skitra and the boss was defeated in 1 minute and 6 seconds.

      Dark Inquisitor Xanesh Kill
      Xanesh took almost two minutes.

      Vexiona Kill
      The raid killed Vexiona in under 1 minute.

      The Hivemind Kill
      Tek'ris and Ka'zir were defeated in 42 seconds.

      Ra-den Kill
      Ra-den was defeated in 1 minute and 26 seconds.

      Shad'har Kill
      Shad'har caused some health drops, as the swirlies on the ground that you need to look out for were not visible through all the Pyroblasts. The boss was killed in 1 minute and 32 seconds.
      Shad'har Logs
      Dresta'gath
      The raid zerged Dresta'gath in under 22 seconds. This is the video we posted yesterday.
      Dresta'gath Logs

      Il'gynoth Kill
      With two dead raid members, Il'gynoth died in 2 minutes and 47 seconds.
      Il'gynoth Logs

      Carapace of N'Zoth Kill
      Next, they went to deal with Carapace of N'Zoth, and the boss took 3 minutes and 35 seconds with all its phases.
      Carapace Logs

      N'Zoth Kill
      The strategy for N'Zoth was to have the Demon Hunter and 9 other Mages (Groups 1&2) go in first while the remaining 20 Mages nuked the Psychus. Other groups went in without a tank. The final boss took 6 minutes and 8 seconds.
      N'Zoth Logs
      Wrathion (Normal) Kill
      Finally, the group switched to Normal difficulty and defeated Wrathion again, but with style, as this time, there were no lags. Oddly enough, Normal Wrathion lasted 3 seconds longer than the Heroic version.

      WoWToken.info, a site used for tracking WoW Token prices across all regions since April 2015, today announced they are shutting down.
      Placeholder for tweet 1265771780553216000 The closure is completely voluntary, as traffic and revenue went significantly down while prices remained quite stable. The creator of WoWToken.info recommends players using different sites that serve the same purpose, but are still working, like WoWTokenPrices.com.
      Placeholder for tweet 1266031823236333569 Thanks to everyone who participated in the project! I've used the site since forever.

      DesMephisto is back (or, more accurately, he never left, as he constantly strives to improve his leveling speeds), and he's gotten his speed record for 10-50 Shadowlands leveling significantly down from his last attempt! 3 hours and 56 minutes (or 3 h 37 min, if you remove the "screwing around" parts) is all it took to get to the equivalent of today's level 120, using Chromie time in Warlords of Draenor, beating the previous best we reported by over an hour and a half.

      Now, it's important to mention that Blizzard have stated in interviews that the current XP rates and leveling speeds on Alpha aren't final and are very rough at the moment, but it's till great to see players going for these speed records nonetheless.
      And here's the last minute or so of the leveling process, and you can check out the whole thing below as well:


      You can also check out our recent interview with the man himself, where he goes into all the many recent achievements he's had, from the 46 max level warriors, to the speed leveling, Autism charity, Guinness World Record and more.

      Method ran Ny'alotha on Heroic difficulty with a raid comprised of 29 Mages and one Demon Hunter, and while they downed all the bosses including N'Zoth, the clear highlight is Dresta'gath that has been defeated in just 22 seconds.
      You can watch the Pyroblast shower and Dresta'gath's decreasing health bar in the following video:
