Now that Blizzard has added Argus the Unmaker to the Dungeon Journal, it's time to look at his abilities and the encounter itself.

Argus the Unmaker is the last boss in Antorus the Burning Throne. Recently, we looked at items, transmogs and mounts that you get by defeating the boss, interesting trinket procs and the fate of our titan after the final battle is over.

The fight seems to be a combination of Yogg-Saron & the Lich King. Titans aid us in the battle and Argus kills all players in stage 4 of the encounter.

Argus the Unmaker

Bound. Broken. Eons of existence, knowing only pain. A shattered soul, fueling infinite evil. The master beckons. Rise... Rise! Begin the end of all things.

Overview

The Speaker has heard the anguished whispers of the Unmaker, an emerald star calling out from the darkness. Little is known of him, only that his once-noble soul has been twisted by ages of endless torment.

I think there is a typo for damage dealers. It says "Get into Strength of the Sky" twice. Shouldn't it say Strength of the Sky and Strength of the Sea?

In the end, I am really sad that they (Blizzard) didn't include Kilrogg Deadeye's true vision phase into one of these raids. The one where you fight until your death (Or so it seems).

 

It could perfectly have tied in with what they did here with the reap soul ability where everyone dies.

 

Video for those that may not know or have forgotten:

embedding the time does usually not work; skip to 2:07 to get exactly to the point I'm talking about here.

 

Edit: Oh it seems to work! yay.

Might be that with everything that has happened since, that "future" is no longer possible? And only would have been had we stayed on Draenor?0

In the vision, we end up in Sylvanas' throne room, so the vision is already expecting us back on Azeroth. According to the lore of the Bleeding Hollow Clan, the vision also never lies. I suppose Blizzard could throw in a wrench with the "The Fel blood corrupts the true sight" kind of deal, though.

 

Then again, we indeed have seen ourselves counter "fate" far more often than one'd imagine. I think it would still be epic to have it be done in a subtle way; where we indeed do end up in the same scenario in the vision, but come out alive instead of dead. That'd be a more "The vision was at least partly true but you foiled it" kind of deal I guess?

      Allied Races
      Patch 7.3.5 contains files for Allied Races, giving Blizzard the opportunity to enable them at any time after the patch goes live. During PTR testing, we looked at unlock requirements, special Heritage Armor, racials, tabards, and unlock scenarios. Four Allied Races will be available before Battle for Azeroth launches. Dark Iron Dwarves and Zandalari Trolls are gated behind the new expansion's campaign. We still have no information about their class options, but in a Q/A, Blizzard mentioned they are exploring the option to allow Dark Iron Dwarves to be Death Knights and Zandalari Trolls will be able to roll Druids.
      Unlock Requirements
      You must purchase Battle for Azeroth and have an existing character of at least level 110 on the destination realm of your Allied Race character. Allied Races are also gated behind reputation and various achievements. All requirements are account-wide.

      Allied Races & Uuna Scenarios
      A preview of Fate's Veil, Forge of Aeons and other zones added in Patch 7.3.5.

      Faction Embassies
      Faction embassies have been added to Orgrimmar and Stormwind. They serve for recruiting Allied Races; almost all faction leaders can be found there. Additionally, Baine Bloodhoof, Saurfang, Trade Prince Gallywix and Nathanos all received new models.

      Faction Embassies Preview #2
      Our second preview focuses on changes to embassies throughout 7.3.5 testing.

      Ogmot the Mad is a new rare mob that can be found in Silithus. He drops Journal of Ogmot the Mad, where we learn how eager he is to become the vessel of the Old Gods. The journal has ten pages and covers interesting events.

      Seething Shore Battleground
      The new battleground is located off the coast of Silithus. It's a resource battle and both factions need to collect Azerite nodes to claim victory.

      Trial of Style Season 2 Rewards
      A couple of new items and rewards have been added to the Trial of Style micro-holiday. New sets cost Trial of Style Tokens.

      Ulduar Timewalking
      Ulduar is the second Timewalking raid, available during Wrath Timewalking. Defeating Algalon now rewards both titles (Observed) and completing the Ulduar raid achievements both mounts (Glory of the Ulduar Raider). There are probably no plans to introduce a transmoggable Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings and the raid now has a single difficulty.

      Vicious War Fox Mount
      The PvP mount datamined back in Patch 7.3 is finally available for 1 Vicious Saddle.

      Zone Scaling
      A highly anticipated feature of 7.3.5 is the introduction of zone scaling. Zones have level caps, difficulty and quest rewards scale with your level. At level 58, you can choose between Outland or Northrend, at level 80 it becomes a choice between Cataclysm zones & Pandaria. Find out more about zone scaling below!

      Zone Chapters
      In addition to zone scaling, all zones now have chapters and completing a fixed number of quests is no longer required for Loremaster achievements.
