Patch 7.3: Antorus, the Burning Throne

Recommended Posts

6SlQeUU.jpg

An early look at Antorus, the Burning Throne. The raid seems to be a mixture of the Tomb of Sargeras and Ulduar, with a clear touch of Titan presence.

Update: We had to hide the video for now and will release it when the raid opens for testing.

The article contains spoilers for Patch 7.3 & beyond.

Encounters

Antorus, the Burning Throne is located in Stygian Wake (Argus). The raid has 11 bosses and potentially another secret boss. We don't know, who Blizzard plans to make Legion's last boss. Argus, the Unmaker sounds like Argus's World Soul, but is that it? Patch 7.3 is still fresh and we'll know more with every new build. So far, the following bosses are listed in the Journal:

  • Garothi Worldbreaker
  • Hounds of Sargeras
  • War Council
  • Portal Keeper Hasabel
  • Eonar, the Lifebinder
  • Imonar the Soulhunter
  • Kin'garoth
  • Varimathras
  • The Coven of Shivarra
  • Aggramar
  • Argus, the Unmaker

Many Antorus boss models can be found in our preview here.

Item Levels

  • Raid Finder - 915+
  • Normal - 930+
  • Heroic - 945+
  • Mythic - 960+

Video link was removed. Sorry about the inconvenience.

The hype is unreal :D

So much of this is unexpected and I'm loving every second of it

You guys gotta admit that the zones alone make this the biggest patch ever in WoW

Seeing as the Great Titan - God of all God-Kings - Aman'Thul himself was datamined, it is plausible that he might have something to do with that secret boss, although it likely would be something similar to Eonar's encounter, with helping Aman'Thul out. Would be fun if a corrupted Algalon, the Observer is the final boss.

 

Algalon did mention he used only a fraction of his power in WotLK on top of getting a good doze of Fel-corruption, is likely still more than a simple threat to a bunch of heroes with shiny weapons.

 

To clear things up, extreme conjecture aside, the only fact we have is that there is an Aman'Thul in-game model datamined. Anything else is just a guess. Fun to do though!

If I wouldn't know all this is related to the patch, I would almost feel like new expansion stuff is on the horizon, lol. So many new and unexpected things to see! <3

I don't follow or play on PTR so I get that great first look when I actually complete the content in live builds. The amazement of seeing Argus in the sky after ToS completion, and then have it leading up to this 7.3 announcement, even as a veteran WoW player really did make me all warm and fuzzy inside :)

      Did you always get slightly upset when Pelagos and Kleia would mount up on those cool flying lion-looking mounts in the Bastion quests and you couldn't? Well now you can! The Silverwind Larion has been found, or rather the way to get him has, as you'll "just" need to collect 50 tiny Anima Shards in Bastion.

      IMPORTANT NOTE: You must be level 60 to see the shards you need to collect!

      As Belivious677 pointed out, the WoW secret finding community has recently found the final 50th one, and you can find all their locations (and details on the hunt itself) in this google document, or they may have already been uploaded to the HandyNotes: Shadowlands addon as well (the creator put together the google doc as well), or they will be soon.

      These aren't all of them so definitely check out the google doc for the full guide.
      So once again, thanks to Belivious677 for pointing out the secret has been solved, to HandyNotes maker Zarillion for putting the search together and to the WoW secret finding discord for, well, finding the secret!

      Blizzard have detailed what's been going on in relation to server stability and the long queues some servers are experiencing:
      (source)
      Since shortly after the launch of Shadowlands, we’ve experienced some service issues that are negatively impacting gameplay on a small number of realms. In this region, we’ve been monitoring and working around the clock to solve these issues for:
      Area 52 Frostmourne Illidan Stormrage Tichondrius We increased realm capacity to let more players than ever before into a single realm, but extreme demand on a few realms has exceeded even that capacity, so we have dialed down some of our earlier changes. We are trying to carefully balance service stability and accessibility, and exploring multiple avenues to get everyone online and playing smoothly.
      This issue is our number one priority. We will continue to work to solve this as quickly as possible, and we will provide further updates as necessary.
      Thank you very much for your patience.

      The most controversial issues of the Shadowlands has begun creating real problems already. Many players are having huge issues when switching Covenants, as there's either bugs in the way or, much worse, actual intended consequences of the switch. We will be looking at only a few of the many reports of problems/badly designed switching systems from reddit.
      The biggest issue reported so far is for players who chose a Covenant, only to find out they don't really like it and, since it was explained that switching them was NOT a big deal, while switching back was, they swapped early and are now screwed for an entire week's worth of progression and story content.
      We don't know if this is unintended, a bug, or exactly how it's supposed to work, so there may be hotfixes incoming (hopefully).
      What seems to be happening with all of the above is that they "spent" their currency on their previous Covenant or it was "locked" by default because it was earned pre-switch, and the souls needed to progress the campaign are now VERY hard to come by (only possible through World Quest drop) because of the weekly limitations.
      So if you're not liking your Covenant, either wait until late in the week to switch, or maybe if you haven't done ANYTHING in it, it could be safe to do so, but we can't be sure. Let's hope there's hotfixes coming soon and this isn't the way it's intended.

      The Shadowlands really look incredible, and the visuals really are one of the strongest aspects of the new expansion, but there's even more to them (or less, in this case)! Players have been exploring the afterlife, and after many, MANY "Bastion is really bright" memes, it seems players have taken to dimming things down, and the Inky Black Potion from the Darkmoon Faire makes the Shadowlands really true to their name!
      Let's start with Oribos, as the contrast really pops:

      And the infinitely bright Bastion:

      We even got a comparison shot for Maldraxxus!

      But truly, Ardenweald is the star of this Inky Black show:

      While Revendreth just looks more Revendrethy:

      The Maw, however, sort of loses some of its uniqueness:

      Source: thadakism.
      We even get a clearer view of Torghast back in Icecrown with the potion!

      Source: tiniestjazzhands.
       
      In any case, if you have some potions handy, definitely take a look around each zone while you're in there, or if not, don't forget to stock up the next time the Darkmoon Faire is in town!
