Patch 7.3: Antorus & The Pantheon

Recommended Posts

ZUCn3Pm.jpg

A write-up about possible lore spoilers involving the Pantheon in Antorus, the Burning Throne raid.

Spoiler Alert

This article is full of spoilers about Antorus, the Burning Throne raid.

In Antorus, players will gain helpful assistance of the Pantheon to once and for all put an end to the Legion and stop Sargeras, who wants to use their souls to rebirth Pantheon.

Eonar, the Lifebinder

Taken from the in-game journal:

The forces of the Legion will warp in and charge at Eonar's Essence and attempt to destroy her outright. Players must defend Eonar until she can gather her energies and strike back at her attackers.

Based on the leaked conversation lines, we know that Eonar is the key to Sargeras's' plan and we will defend her Essence before she turns into a physical manifestation.

Taken from the leaked conversation lines (posted here, credits go to MMO-Champion)

Essence of Eonar: The tormented cries of the Pantheon ring out from deep within the core of Argus.
Essence of Eonar: If Sargeras breaks them as he did Aggramar, no power in this universe will stop him.
Essence of Eonar: Release them, champions, or your struggle will be for naught.

What Sargeras is up to?

It seems he wants to rebirth the Pantheon or use their souls to awaken Argus.

Aggramar talking to Sargeras

Aggramar: What is your bidding, master?
Voice of Sargeras: The circle nears completion. The mortals must not disrupt the rebirth.
Aggramar: Those who will not serve shall be destroyed. It is the only way.
Voice of Sargeras: Become the instrument of my wrath once again, Aggramar. End this incursion of the Light.
Voice of Sargeras: The hour of rebirth draws near. Are the souls prepared?
Aggramar: Our kin still resist the true path, master. But they will soon be broken.
Voice of Sargeras: One still eludes us. Her essence is needed to ensure the victory of my crusade.
Aggramar: The Life-Binder will soon reveal herself. She will not escape me, master!
Voice of Sargeras: When my new Pantheon rises, no power in the universe will stand against the Legion!

Aggramar talking to players

Aggramar: Mortals. I wasted millennia fighting to spare you from corruption. Until at last my eyes were opened to the truth.
Aggramar: You are the corruption. We will save the universe by wiping all memory of you from existence.
Aggramar: Soon comes the awakening of my brother, Argus. Together, our new Pantheon will join the master in breaking your fetid world. But you will not live to see it.

We learn from the journal that the Coven of Shivarra are responsible for torturing Titan souls & Varimathras

The Coven of Shivarra

Shivarra Priestesses, tasked with torturing and brainwashing the souls of the mighty Titans, assault the raid together from within their temple, deep within the core of Argus. It's important to note that the Coven of Shivarra designed Varimathras' cell to torture him for all time.

  • Noura, Mother of Flames
  • Asara, Mother of Night
  • Diima, Mother of Gloom
  • Thu'raya, Mother of the Cosmos

Legion's Ending

Amanthul's voice is heard, telling everyone they want to use the last glimmer of Argus's power to bind him at the Seat of the Pantheon and he tells players to return home and protect the last titan (Azeroth).

Prophet Velen: Sargeras will soon undo all we have fought for.
Voice of Amanthul: No.
Voice of Amanthul: We will use the last glimmer of Argus's power to bind him here. The Seat of the Pantheon shall become Sargeras's prison... and ours as well.
Prophet Velen: You would condemn yourselves to stop him?
Illidan Stormrage: Our world must survive... no matter the cost!
Voice of Amanthul: A sacrifice must be made.
Voice of Amanthul: Return home, children of Azeroth. Protect the final titan.
High Exarch Turalyon: Prophet... what happened out there?
Prophet Velen: Illidan serves as the Dark Titan's jailer. His sacrifice has ended the Legion. At long last, the Burning Crusade... is over.

Argus Titan Models

There are two different models for Argus. 

  • The first one is simply called Argus and the second one is Antorus's final boss Argus the Unmaker
  • We never heard about "Argus the Unmaker", so this titan has probably been artificially constructed as a new host for Sargeras's soul

The Pantheon

The following titans will appear in Antorus and have in-game models for both their physical manifestations and souls:

Aggramar // He has no soul :(

Aman'thul // Aman'thul's Soul

His soul is somewhat special, because it's transparent at times.

For all the years that warcraft has had us players fighting the Legion in one form or another. When its all over I hope there is one Hell of a cinematic. One that at least last a few minutes and give us that feeling that it is "really" over this time. Not just a "BIG" GAME OVER screen and then the credits roll. That would be so disappointing.

Like this but then as an outro? Including the same music, of course.

Being a super WoW lore geek, I have no words to describe how happy this makes me feel.  The possible rebirth of the Panth and having anything to do with Sargeras' demise once and for all would be amazing!

as exciting as this all is I feel blizz really needs to deliver hard when it comes to the next expansion. Since WC3 so about 15 years it's all been the burning legion. The all but guaranteed next bag guys being void lords came about from a lore retcon in one book of several blizz has done. It's almost a cheesy action movie plot or the same plot we've seen a million times in rpgs "haha you thought they were the true bad guy when it was really me!!!". As it stands fighting the void etc just sounds unappealing to me. Plus the comics already spoiled what happens in many aspects so we know the goal its just the path to get there. Now of course a nzoth old god themed expac could be cool, it's a last leg kinda thing. So while legion plot wise is amazing, and what is to come looks great, looking further down the road blizz will really need to wow us.

do you......... do you see what i did there :D

This is a major problem WoW will face in 2-3 expansions. The lore is limited! They've already now given away all the weapons you ever wanted to wield with the artifact and skins system, so the lore is even tapped out in that manner. Maybe they invent something completely new, but also maybe the Lore isn't critical anymore... It has to be involved, but it's not more important than the polished game play itself.

Fighting against titans is not the end game, there is more lore behind.

There's always a bigger boss to be defeated!

Just you wait and see! Eventually we'll be fighting air itself, stabbing at random space trying to defeat all the oxygen in the universe.

      Sinrunner Reins is a new and probably secret mount that you can obtain in Shadowlands.
      We currently do not know what happened to good Old Blanchy after it died back in Westfall, but the mount has a Venthyr hue to it, so we speculate that its soul ended up in Revendreth for some reason.
      Sinrunner Reins teaches you Sinrunner Blanchy, so we know for sure it is the same horse we previously encoutered, but what sins did Blanchy commit remains to be seen.
      Other datamined spells and items tied to the mount and the NPC that you need to interact with to get it are:
      Blanket for Blanchy (DNT) requires Comfortable Saddle Blanket "A soft and comfortable blanket for regulating body temperature." Blanchy Horseshoes (DNT) > Requires 4 Sturdy Horseshoes "Protective footwear for horse-like creatures." Groomed Blanchy (DNT) > Requires Grooming Brush "A circular motion with the stiff bristled brush removes and soothes itches." Watered Blanchy (DNT) > Requires Bucket of Clean Water "Guaranteed to quench the greatest thirst." Apples for Blanchy (DNT) indicates that you will need three Dredhollow Apple to create Sinrunner Reins, which seems to be the final step in getting the mount.
      Based on the number of items you must acquire, we think the mount will be tied to some secret, where you must brush the horse, provide it with a blanket, clean water, and so on.
      Here's how the mount looks like in the game.

      Some rumors were circulating about the removal of Herald of the Titans in Shadowlands after the level squish. Luckily, we're able to confirm the achievement is there, but the requirements were squished down too.
      If you want to get the Herald of Titans achievement in Shadowlands before the squish on live servers, you must be at level 80 and have nobody in the raid wear items higher than item level 100. With the Shadowlands level squish, you will need to defeat Algalon at level 30 wearing items no higher than item level 35.
      Herald of the Titans in Visions of N'Zoth Herald of the Titans in the Shadowlands Pre-Patch Herald of the Titans - Defeat Algalon the Observer at level 80 without anyone in the raid wearing items higher than Item Level 100. Herald of the Titans - Defeat Algalon the Observer at level 30 without anyone in the raid wearing items higher than Item Level 35.

      Niya, one of the Soulbinds available to members of the Night Fae Covenant, comes with an interesting Soulbind trait that mimics the Shadowmeld Night Elf racial.
      If you decide to join the Night Fae Covenant, you will gain access to the Soulshape Signature Ability, which increases your Movement Speed by 50% and teleports you 15 yards forward on a short cooldown.
      Niya, one of the Night Fae Soulbinds, comes with the Sylvari Mantle that conceals you when Soulshape ends until you move, so it acts pretty much like the Shadowmeld, the Night Elf racial.
      Other Soulbind traits that you can get through Niya include:
      Row 1: Stay on the Move (on the same row with Sylvari Mantle) Row 4: Niya's Tools: Burrs // Niya's Tools: Poison // Niya's Tools: Herbs Row 7: Care Package // Swift Patrol Row 8: Grove Invigoration Note that you can only pick one Soulbind trait per row.
      Here's Niya's full Soulbind Path.
