Patch 7.3: Antoran Charhound & Antoran Gloomhound

Recommended Posts

eFkywaQ.jpg

A first look at upcoming Antoran mounts from the new raid.

Two new Antoran hounds were added in Patch 7.3 and they're sharing models with the Hounds of Sargeras boss encounter in Antorus the Burning Throne raid.

Description

Sargeras' own hound was maybe once a felstalker, but over the years the Dark Titan reforged and reshaped his companion into something much more powerful. When, at last, he was pleased with his creation, he set about creating more of the hounds, and imbuing them with shadow and flame.

Antoran CharhoundAntoran Charhound looks like Shatug and Antoran GloomhoundAntoran Gloomhound looks like Fharg.

The mounts (or at least one of them) might have a low drop chance from Sargeras's dogs encounter in Antorus, just like Abyss WormAbyss Worm from Mistress Sass'zine.

They might be slightly unoriginal, but damn are they cool looking. They are cool enough to make me scream if I ever got one.

This right here will be the thought process of most - seeing it around while someone else rides it? Hey, it's kinda cool, bit recycled looking... When it drops for you? O.M.G.

I'm hoping these two mounts will be the heroic/mythic drops from the final raid boss of Legion. Not that wonky looking reskinned griffin.

+1 to this. The other mount looks fine, but it's a proper reskin. This at least has some kind of creativity put onto it too :p

It is a neat mount yes, I just wish they would stop making such cool stuff and then locking it behind content that only a small percent of the population are able to do with a elite guild at there back, or a drop rate so low only 1 in a thousand people ever see it in there lifetime. I had to accept long ago that there was a large portion of this game I will never get to experience due to lack of Luck, time, patience, or enough friends to actually accomplish it :(

They have to do this though. There is already barely any incentive to hardcore raid anymore (perfectly exemplified by the huge number of guilds that are just disappearing) and they already removed Realm First titles and rewards, so they need to reward them cosmetically somehow. Locking the mounts behind Mythic content is the only way to do that.

There needs to be some things that are only for hardcore raiders or that portion of the game will just die.

While I agree people who put extra effort into doing the harder stuff should be rewarded for there effort, I still wish they would better reward us casual players  with good stuff too considering we play the game way more and longer then people who only get on a few times a week to just raid or pvp with there guild.

I don't think rewarding casual players because they play way more makes sense - casual means you don't play as much or put as much time/effort into it? Also, remember that just getting on a few times a week to raid could mean 10+ hours played, not including the time they would put in around raiding as well. Guilds that down KJ/Argus Mythic most likely won't be those casual guilds. It will be ones where each member puts time in to ensure they earn that kill/reward.

I sorry, guess my idea of casual player is someone who plays the regular game , quests, and goofs off here and there but plays 8 or more hours each day.

To play 8 or more hours each day, you surely would be putting time into raids and aiming to get the rewards? If you spend that long playing the game but refuse to participate in Mythic raiding, then you shouldn't receive the rewards. By choosing not to participate, it's your choice not to get them. It's a slightly different story if you are someone that is completely capable and really wants to, but can only play 1 hour per week.

      There's been quite a few bosses tested on the PTR in the Sanctum of Domination already so we'll be taking a look at a bunch of videos, to get a good feel for each of them in the upcoming patch! In terms of highlights so far, Kel'thuzad, the penultimate boss, has received a lot of praise as being really well designed, Soulrender is the new Heigan with a bit of a safety dance mechanic (and Garrosh present), the Remnant of Ner'zhul strips down and the Tarragrue gives us anima powers!
      Let's start at the beginning with the first boss, the Tarragrue, where we actually get 4 anima powers to play with, at least until the 10% mark when he gets really pissed and takes them away:
      Then we have the Eye of the Jailer (aka Odyn's eye he traded to be able to see into the Shadowlands) with a whole lot of chains and gunk on the floor placement involved:
      Not that many videos on The Nine boss, where we face off against Sylvanas' Valkyrs:
      Then we have the Remnant of Ner'zhul where we take off his armor and reveal more and more of his actual self:
      And the dance begins with Soulrender Dormazain, as we inpolitely barge in on him draining Garrosh:
      Guardian of the First Ones is Patchwerk type fight where you have to recharge the boss by bringing it to one of three pillars or it will wipe everyone:
      Fatescribe Roh-Kalo is a really interesting one, with some puzzle/gimick type mechanics and a whole lot of space management, with the rotating floor with several rings acting as the "puzzle" where you have to bring the runes on the floor to a specific location:
      And finally there's Kel'thuzad, who has already received pretty big praise from several top end raiders, including current RWF champion Complexity Limit GM Max:
      So, the penultimate boss is shaping up really well, with some callbacks to his previous Naxxramas encounters (the adds and his mind control mostly), but we also get to go into his phylactery and fight him there! The fight keeps escalating as Kel'thuzad gets stronger and stronger as you push him lower, with the same 3 phases repeating:
       
       
       
      So, we're just missing Sylvanas and Painsmith Raznal to have seen the entirety of the SoD bosses, and then we just have to wait for the actual raid release to see what Mythic surprises Sylvanas has in store. The Kel'thuzad comments from top raiders are very encouraging, and that in conjunction with the generally positive Castle Nathria boss design feedback seems to bode very well for the new raid and the new race as well!
