Patch 7.3.2: The Fate of Azeroth (Major Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

New sound files have been added in Patch 7.3.2 and they are full of heavy spoilers revolving around Illidan and the fate of Azeroth after Argus the Unmaker has been defeated.

Our friends over at MMO-Champion have uploaded new voicovers for Aggramar, Aman'thul, Eonar the Life-Binder, Illidan, Khadgar, Malfurion and Tyrande that contain major spoilers, proceed with caution!

From the recently added Dungeon Journal entry of Argus, we learn that the Pantheon will be aiding us in the final battle against Argus. Eonar provides Gift of the LifebinderGift of the Lifebinder, allowing players to resurrect during the encounter. Other perks in the encounter are  Gift of the SeaGift of the Sea or Gift of the SkyGift of the Sky.

Aman'thul VO

Aggramar VO

Eonar VO

Illidan VO

Illidan asks you to put some final matters to rest and deliver Alor'idal CrystalAlor'idal Crystal on his behalf. It holds messages for his brother Malfurion, Tyrande and you. After that you're supposed to place it atop Mount Hyjal upon the shores of the Well of Eternity. If you don't know what happens to Illidan after Argus is defeated, you can find more information here. Illidan, Malfurion and Tyrande received young models in Patch 7.3.2 that may be part of a flashback.

Malfurion VO

Tyrande VO

Khadgar VO

Now comes the real deal. Khadgar's new sound files reveal what's going on with Azeroth.

"The Legion is defeated, its master imprisoned, but in his final spiteful act, Sargeras may have doomed us all. Our world is wounded champion. Its life essence seeps out into the sands just as Magni foresaw. This mere drop of Argus' blood surges with incredible power, the might of a titan. If the blood of Azeroth also proves to be a source of such strength, those who seek to rule this world will stop at nothing to possess it. The days ahead may be dark indeed. For now, go to Silithus. Gaze upon the wound in the world with your own eyes. We will find a way to save Azeroth, I know it."

Remember Il'gynoth's quote "The king of diamonds has been made a pawn?" It all started with the Whispers of a Frightened World scenario.  From the transcript it is obvious that the final titan is wounded. There's a new map with a giant wound (hole) in Silithus.

The wound really reminds me of a Certain Old God who also happens to reside near/in Silithus.

This lore is probably some of the most interesting lore the game has had in a long time. Plot twists, old gods, chronicals, it's really awesome. 

We never killed C'thun, as if we did the whole world would be significantly wounded. We obviously just pushed him back, but he seems to have returned for round two...

Well what I meant is: The Wound looks like C'Thun's Eye.

It looks more like a stab wound from Sargeras, probably a final act of rage right before he gets imprisoned.

Looks more like the Eye of Sauron... LOTRO/WOW crossover expac inc...

Legit though it does look more like stab wound, interested to see how this plays out.

A wound from Sargeras that hurt Azeroth, right smack in the middle of Silithus. Wounding Azeroth actually gives the Old Gods an advantage, which leads me to wonder why Sargeras decided to do that. My thought is that he will try one final time to destroy Azeroth once and for all but fail and only inflict a small wound. Still, as cool as the Legion's lore is in my opinion, I feel like the Old Gods and the Void are ultimately a bit more interesting. All of the stuff they say, the things that they might be doing to Jaina (if it's not a dreadlord it's obviously the Old Gods) and all the characters gravitating towards the power of the Void, like Alleria who will very likely have a large part to play next expansion. Even the Naaru and the light are beginning to become interestingly similar to the Void in some ways. Can't wait to see where it all takes us.

I think it is awesome that out of all of Azeroth, Silithus is going to have some type of overhaul. The relevance of Silithus kind of died in Vanilla and it was still dull to quest in, especially if you were on the wall between 55-60. The environment of the area, I always thought was impeccable but then again there really wasn't much going on...I think it was just the general creepy vibe from the unknown, random whispers and eerie music. Regardless, I think they picked a prime area on Azeroth for 110-120...content...especially if this could lead us to the underground city of Nyalotha

It's a phased version of Silithus.

Yeah it looks like a stab from Sargeras. Might awaken some good sleeping Old Gods.

I imagine they won't be too happy either.

All this right here, this is why I still play this game.  It's like an entire universe.  So much history.  Dedication on player and dev team alike.  

It's not like FF games where they change every game, or other brands that try hard and die out after a few cheap Xpacs.  

This game is a behemoth.  Every xpac is a new head on the hydra.  It's great.

The fact that there are hundreds of novels, comics, short stories and everything around it helps to create such a great universe. The lore just goes on and on and on. If you truly wanted to start from 0 and check everything, I mean... it would take months.

      Last week's title proved to be cursed, as Blizzard postponed the Destruction nerfs, and so the top spec remains very much unchanged, but the rest of the tuning did go through, with Affliction getting a boost and some tanks getting changes as well.
      Mythic
      95th Percentile
      While Destruction avoided its ultimate fate for a while longer, Demonology is just biding its time to claim that No.1 spot. Survival moved into 3rd as it passed Frost DK, but it is also scheduled for a nerf (although an unspecified one) in Season 4, so the year of the spear may be coming to an end. Windwalker remains firm in 5th after its 9.2.5 buff, as Unholy continues to climb, rising 1 into 6th and passing Elemental. Feral sees a huge upswing, as it jumps 6 spots into 8th, followed by Marksmanship. However, Feral isn't the biggest mover this week, with Affliction actually rising into the top 10 after its buff, 10 spots up from last week and a full 14 spots up from its dead-last spot before that. Now we do have a relatively smaller group of players even plying Affliction, so the numbers aren't necessarily the most accurate, but it's definitely received a boost and might prompt some more to play it (at least in Season 4 when Destro moves out of the top).

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      All Percentiles
      Survival moves past Frost DK in the generalist bracket as well, but the big news is Affliction once again, which is doing even better here, moving into No.6 after the buffs, climbing 8 spots! The buff may not have been that big, but it seems to have worked, at least for now. The rest remains mostly the same, with Retribution moving up a few spots and all three mage specs moving further towards the bottom, where Fire has taken residence.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Tanks and Healers
      The tanks got a bit of a shakeup with the class tuning, but it hasn't impacted the numbers yet, on the contrary in fact, as Protection Warrior takes the top spot, while it was Guardian and Vengeance that actually got buffed in the tuning, but remained in their same spots. Paladins dropped 2 spots in the DPS charts as they swapped places with Warriors, and Brewmasters remained at the bottom.
      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Healers didn't get any changes in terms of tuning, and their rankings remained very similar, with only discipline moving up 2 spots.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Heroic
      Demonology is in charge in Heroic, as Destruction remains down in 15th where it's been for a while now. The big mover at the top is Enhancement, as it slots into 3rd place, 3 up from last week! Survival recovers after a dip, landing in 5th, and is followed by one of the biggest outliers in Heroic, with Balance sitting in 6th, in stark contrast to it's very low standing in Mythic.

      All percentiles Heroic data by Warcraft Logs.

      If you change your Loot Specialization, Zereth Mortis World and Daily Quests can offer different weapons as rewards.
      The game will offer you different rewards from World and Daily Quests on live servers when you switch your Loot Specialization. Here is a short video demonstration video:

      You can utilize Loot Specialization switching to collect transmogs or weapons for your off-spec.

      Note that this only works in Zereth Mortis and it takes approximately 10 seconds for the rewards to change.

      Update: it seems there's only half a mystery here, as I actually just didn't spot the Path of Frost icon, which led to the death. Apologies there. GY port is still a bug though!
      It seems someone's been pouring concrete around Stormwind's oceans, as JuliusLeNightmare faced off against some water and lost, only to be teleported to a very far away graveyard.
      Now while the teleport to the Tirisfal graveyard and the weird invasion of the zone near Stormwind is a well-known phenomenon/spatial anomaly, the transformation of the water into concrete is slightly weirder! Forsaken conspiracy/concrete pouring or weird bug? You decide!

      We've seen many WoW-related Minecraft builds over the years, and this is one of the better ones, as it takes the Alliance capital and transforms it extremely well. After 200 hours of work, @Yunatahel finally finished up and shared the project with the world, so let's take a look!
      Warning: potentially loud twitter video sound.
      Even the official WoW twitter account commented!

      You can also check out a different take on Stormwind (and Orgrimmar) here, and a recent Silvermoon rebuild here.

      After today's reveal of the Priest Dragonflight talent tree, Blizzard went into a little more detail for one particular Shadow talent, as it was a little unclear what it did. Here's the basic tooltip we got today, which will be updated.

      "Idol of Y'Shaarj: Shadowfiend causes you to gain a benefit based on your target's current emotional state."
      Idol of Y'Shsarj (Source)
      Idol of Y’Shaarj will receive a new tooltip as we get closer to Dragonflight. In the meantime though, here’s a breakdown of what it currently does:
      If your target is…
      Above 80% health? → Pride
      You and your Shadowfiend deal increased damage while Shadowfiend is active. Enraged? → Anger
      Purges the enraged effect and increases your Haste while Shadowfiend is active. Stunned? → Despair
      You generate Insanity while Shadowfiend is active. Feared? → Fear
      You and your Shadowfiend deal increased damage and do not break fear effects while Shadowfiend is active. No conditions met? → Violence
      Duration of Shadowfiend is increased. The priority order is:
      Anger/Despair/Fear → Pride → Violence
      As with everything in the talent tree, these effects are subject to change. I hope this clears up some confusion. We’ll continue monitoring the community’s feedback and we look forward to sharing more Dragonflight details in the future!
