A new month is here tomorrow and so we get to see what's coming in WoW! Along with the usual bonus events, Darkmoon Faire, PvP brawls etc, in August we're also getting the final LFR wing of Tomb of Sargeras, where Kil'jaeden awaits (why exactly Mistress Sass'zine is the image that denotes that particular event is a mystery, though), the Trial of Style and Blizzard at gamescom!

Can't wait to see how they strip down KJ for LFR - if Maiden/Avatar are any indicator, he'll just jump off the damn ship at 50%.

Halfway through the fight it will phase into Sunwell and get one shot by the azure dragons.

Instead of fighting Kil'Jaeden, you have to fight Kil'Jaden, son of Will Smith. He will have an ability called <Summon Sister Willow> who does <Whip My Hair> and one-shots you. With her hair. And then everyone gets PHAT LEWT.

Your ideas intrigue me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

Too bad mythic ToS doesn't involve Will Smith soaking the jellyfish.

      Many players are still waiting for Patch 7.3 to go live, before they complete the Mage Tower Challenge for their Artifact weapon appearance, because with increasing item level, the challenge becomes more trivial. If you have your appearance unlocked and think how good you are, you probably haven't heard of Muddymonk!
      The player wrote on reddit that he finished Mage Tower Challenges for each class / specialization - that's a total of 36 challenges.

      You can find more screenshots here.

      Redditor eke00372 uploaded a video of Argus the Unmaker from PTR. Blizzard opened Antorus for testing and a guild was able to access the raid's final boss, even though testing should have ended with Aggramar. The fight is still very unfinished. The boss can be CCed and isn't even an elite.
      After defeating Aggramar, you talk to Magni and get teleported to the Seat of the Pantheon.
      The fight takes place in an area called Seat of the Pantheon.

      Rewards
      Multiple rewards await after you defeat Legion's final boss.
      Scythe of the Unmaker (Polearm Weapon Transmog).

      Shackled Ur'zul mount drops from Mythic Argus.

      Kirin Tor Summoning Crystal is obtained when you complete Blood of a Titan.

      Insignia of the Grand Army from completing The Death of a Titan.
