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 :)

      It's official! We've seen the datamining already, but it wasn't clear what the intention was - but now we have official confirmation. Story Difficulty is coming to the Nerub'ar Palace in the War Within! 
      Players will be able to face off against the final boss of the first raid of the expansion in groups of 1 to 5, with reduced mechanics and a greater focus on the narrative. This option will become available when the final LFR wing opens up and will be repeatable. No word on whether there will be any loot involved, but it seems unlikely (aside from quest rewards). We also didn't get any explanations on whether this is a one-time thing or whether this will stay as a staple for future raids as well.

      Hello!
      As mentioned in the article above, we’ve been working on a new raid experience for The War Within called Story difficulty.
      Throughout World of Warcraft’s history, many of the most epic moments in our stories have been told in dungeons and raids. With the recent introduction of Follower Dungeons, we’ve been experimenting with new ways for players to see those stories, especially for those who may not feel comfortable playing within the social expectations of group environments.
      With Story difficulty in Nerub-ar Palace, our goal is to offer players a way to see the epic conclusion of Azj-Kahet’s story who may not see the end to that story otherwise. This difficulty is intended for a private party of 1-5 players and will allow players to face off against Queen Ansurek without the assistance of other players or Followers. This encounter features reduced combat complexity and difficulty, instead focusing on the narrative elements of the encounter. Story difficulty is intended to be experienced as a one-time chapter in the game’s story, but is repeatable for players who want to revisit that part of the adventure.
      We currently plan to release this experience alongside the final wing of Looking For Raid difficulty, for players who’ve reached the appropriate point in the questing experience of The War Within. We’d love to hear your feedback on this feature once it’s released.

      To make it easier for everyone to upgrade their cloak in MoP Remix, Blizzard added new "threads" as rewards from various solo and group activities.
      (Source)
      New! Get Wound Up in Spools of Eternal Threads
      Players can now increase their thread count with four new items that grant escalating amounts of power for the Cloak of Infinite Potential.
      Minor Spool of Eternal Thread (Grants 20 Threads) Lesser Spool of Eternal Thread (Grants 50 Threads) Spool of Eternal Thread (Grants 100 Threads) Greater Spool of Eternal Thread (Grants 180 Threads (it’s percale!)) Please note that not all Spool of Eternal Thread sources change in quality based on the character’s level. Group finder bonuses and Infinite Bazaar daily quests increase in quality as a character levels. Achievements will always provide a spool that is equal in quality to the Bronze Cache it rewards, regardless of character level. When a Spool grants Stamina, the value is doubled.
      These items can be earned and collected through a variety of solo and group activities including:
      Infinite Bazaar Repeatable Daily Quests First-Time Daily Scenario, Dungeon Finder dungeons, and each Raid Finder queue World Bosses Remix Achievements Troves of the Thunder King scenario on the Isle of Thunder. Remix Achievements are also available for additional characters to complete for bonus Bronze and bonus Spools of Eternal Thread.

      There’s some pretty great final boss death cinematics out there in the many raids of WoW, but have you seen them all? Do you know what the very first one was? Well, Athelarius has got your back and the answers! He made a great compilation of all final boss deaths in honor of 20 years of WoW.
      Starting all the way back in 2007 and the Burning Crusade, when the first final boss defeat cinematic was created. The fall of Illidan the Betrayer was pretty amazing, for me especially, since I was one of the first 20 people in the world to see it! Well, outside of Blizzard’s offices at least.. We go all the way through Arthas, Garrosh, Gul'dan, and finally up to the last/current cinematic, Fyrakk’s Death, which is already 6 months old!
      It’s a pretty interesting thing to see all of them put together, as it charts the progress of the cinematics team and just how good these have gotten over the years. Let’s take a look.

      We skipped a week in our Mythic+ tracking, but we're back on track today with a look at what's been going on since we last checked in. Not a huge amount, as it turns out, at least at the very tops of the charts,  with M+ being very stable, as it tends to be (especially compared to the weekly fluctuations of different raids Awakening).
      Warcraft Logs Points
      The below logs are based on POINTS, and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We're also using the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity, meaning the top spec is marked as 100 and then the rest are ranked in relation to that peak point.
      All Keys
      95th percentile DPS
      The top 5 are frozen solid and are not budging, even over the course of 2 weeks. We do see movement at No.6, as Retribution climbs one up, just ahead of Balance, who makes a big 5-spot leap! Those two specs put Outlaw down into 8th and Elemental to 9th, with Unholy closing out the top 10 four spots up. Enhancement falls quite a bit down into the bottom 3, joining Affliction and Survival, who have been there for quite a while.

      Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      All Percentiles
      It's only the top 4 that's fixed solid here in the generalist bracket, as Frost Mage climbs up 2 spots into 5th, pushing Outlaw back behind Retribution. Balance makes the same climb up as in the top percentiles, finding itself in 8th, with Devastation also rising right behind it. Elemental claims the final top 10 slot, with a 1-spot bump. Survival and Affliction get a different cell mate down in the dumps, with Frost DK joining them.

      Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      Raw DPS U.GG DPS Rankings
      U.gg's rankings are based on actual DPS taken from Warcraft Logs data, focusing on the top players and span the past two weeks.
      Even the raw DPS chart is uncharacteristically stable, at least for the top two! We do see Unholy burst in to 3rd, gaining a giant 7 spots, with Marksmanship right behind it with a 5-spot leap. Demonology takes down Retribution, as Elemental drops 4 spots, and Arms moves a few up.
      Mythic+ All Keystone DPS rankings by u.gg.
       
      For even more in-depth data for each individual key head on over to Warcraft Logs and u.gg. And if you're interested in more info on the specs themselves you can always check out our class guides, as well as our Mythic+ guides and Mythic+ tier list.

      Ladies and gentlemen, the show is on! Blizzard has released a hotfix on live servers to identify players who participated in Frog farming. Will the affected players be banned or have their gains reverted?
      As first reported by Wowhead, the hotfix targets the CriteriaTree database table, which is an unusual method to identify those who participated in the farm before it was nerfed. The said table has been updated with a new "10.2.7 Timewalking Season - Is a Frog Farmer" entry.
      We're waiting on Blizzard's comment regarding this hotfix. Stay tuned for more updates!
