This is going to be a good patch. Hoping they stick to the 77 day cycle, so this won't be another Siege of Orgrimmar. Raid looks good though too.

Thanks for this awesome info roundup. For me as a returning player very informative.

But I have a little problem, where the hell can I start the quest to go to Argus, can't find it anywhere. (I stopped playing when I hit lvl110 a year ago, and have now returned)

It should automatically pop up in your quest log when you visit Dalaran. I had a similar issue on PTR.

Go to

  • Bladefist Bay and talk to Lady Liadrin if you're Horde
  • Stormwind Harbor and talk to Vereesa if you're Alliance

Just to further Stan's advice above, it seems zoning into a new zone will trigger it if it hasn't already, for some reason.

Well it didn't show up all the time, so I hunted the issue down with a GM, and apparently you need to have completed the first steps of the order hall campaign so that the Broken Shore scenario becomes available and you need to complete the Assault on the Broken shore. After that the starting Quest "The Hand of Fate" becomes available.

Ah, so it was because you hadn't participated in the prior events rather than having done everything and it just didn't pop up. I misunderstood what your issue was, sorry!

      After Black Temple and Ulduar, we found a reference in the game files that hints at Siege of Orgrimmar as the next Timewalking raid.
      While nothing has been officially confirmed yet, the latest game files contain an instanced version of Siege of Orgrimmar, which leads us to believe that Blizzard plans to add the raid to the Mists of Pandaria Timewalking Event in Battle for Azeroth.

      After that, all Timewalking events will have a raid associated with them, leaving Blizzard room to add Warlords of Draenor Timewalking.

      Ah yes, the World of Warcraft South Park episode. It spawned many memes and was a pretty big deal for WoW at the time, bringing it even further into the pop culture mainstream. It seems the episode still echoes in people's minds, as ianxplosion took it upon himself to reenact the boys' plan to level to (the then max) 60 killing only boars. Obviously this has only recently become possible with the old world level scaling changes in 7.3.5, and while he didn't only kill Elwynn Forest boars (even heading to Outland for a short while) he did stay true to the episode's ideals and dinged 60 a few days ago. 6 days played, a month and 19 thousand boars later, here's the clip of the final victory, and a longer section of the stream from the final day:


      Live to win indeed.
      And finally, just in case you aren't familiar with the episode in question, or just haven't watched in a while, here's the inspiration for ianxplosion's quest, and one of the better South Park episodes in general, Make Love, Not Warcraft:

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a growing raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of four within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.

      We care more about the people we play with than their item levels or progression rankings. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      We are 3/11 Mythic, Heroic AOTC Antorus progression.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid.
      We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for raiding the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      DPS: Will consider all specs, but would love to add a dedicated Elemental Shaman.

      The Nitty Gritty
      If you're intrigued, please check out our wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit. This will give you a deeper dive into the raid team.
