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?

      3 encrypted Patch 9.1 cinematics are currently present in the game files. These usually contain spoilers, so we will need to wait until June 29 to watch them.
      All combined, the cinematics have 7.46 minutes.
      interface/cinematics/shadowlands_910_950and952_1920.avi is 2 minutes and 25 seconds long and has 69.09 MB. interface/cinematics/shadowlands_910_951_1920.avi is 3 minutes and 7 seconds long and has 88.32 MBs. interface/cinematics/shadowlands_910_953_1920.avi has 1 minute and 56 seconds and 54.67 MBs. There are also lower-resolution versions of the same cinematics present in the game files (1080p / 640p). What do you hope to see there?

      In Patch 9.1, Blizzard implemented a new option that allows you to transmog each shoulder separately. In this post, we are looking at the feature in more detail.
      Visit a transmogrifier in any major city or hub. On the left side, select shoulders, and in the bottom left corner, enable the "Transmog Each Shoulder Separately" option.

      This will create another slot for your second shoulder on the left side. Click on the Shoulder #2 slot, select the appearance you would like, and click on "Apply'.

      Congrats, you've just transmogged each shoulder separately!

      Blizzard has nerfed Bolstering and Raging in the first 9.1 Release Candidate.
      Bolstering - When any non-boss enemy dies, its death cry empowers nearby allies, increasing their maximum health by 15% and damage by 20%. Maximum health increase reduced by 5%. Raging - Non-boss enemies enrage at 30% health remaining, dealing 100% 75% increased damage until defeated. Enraged enemies now deal 25% damage.

      Demon Hunters get some good news from the PTR, as a long standing issue/feature of Fel Rush has been addressed!
      Ever since the class was introduced, Fel Rush had a random chance of simply stopping all player forward momentum, basically slamming you into an invisible wall after the movement ends. This was pretty frustrating, especially with the DH's very mobile playstyle/class fantasy, and it was never really clear why it only happened sometimes, if it was a bug that never got fixed, or an intended feature that just sometimes didn't work and allowed your momentum to function normally.
      Well, wonder no more as the 9.1 PTR has put an end to all that, as tested by freefrag1412, who very joyfully shared his findings with fellow Demon Hunters! While you may have a tough time spotting the differences between the two examples below, if you've ever played a DH and experienced this, you'll know/feel it! After all sight isn't needed for these fel-wielders anyway.
      "Demon Hunters, rejoice! Fel Rush finally got fixed?!"
      Here's more from freefrag:
      On live, Fel Rush had a good chance to stop your momentum mid air. It was pretty consistent for me and other people I have spoken to.
      On PTR, Fel Rush never ever did that and I felt it immediately. It was such a smooth experience, even though I have around 180ms latency!
      Edit: I jumped for an hour in Ogrimmar on PTR to verify it empirically. Thanks, Holinka!
      In case you didnt click the link, here is the webm to watch.
