Argus the Unmaker - Secret Mythic Phase

Recommended Posts

Argus the Unmaker got a distinct model in the latest Patch 7.3.2 PTR build and it seems he will serve as Sargeras' host during the secret Mythic phase in Antorus the Burning Throne.

Mythic Phase Abilities

In last week's Patch 7.3.2 PTR build, Blizzard added many abilities that indicate Sargeras will be a part of the encounter (Sargeras' GazeSargeras' Gaze).

Here's a list of his abilities:

  • Collective PunishmentCollective Punishment - Sargeras inflicts Collective Punishment on the target every 5 secs for 15 sec. Each strike inflicts 60,000,000 Shadow damage divided among players within 20 yards. Prepare for the judgment of Sargeras...
  • Sargeras' RageSargeras' Rage - Inflicts a player with Sargeras' Rage, causing them to release Unleashed Rage if any other players come nearby.
    • 
Unleashed RageUnleashed Rage - Inflicts 1,500,000 Shadow damage every 2 sec. for 30 sec to both the player with Sargeras' Rage and to any players who come nearby. This effect stacks.
  • Sargeras' FearSargeras' Fear - Inflicts a player with Sargeras' Fear, inflicting them with Crushing Fear if they are not within a short distance of another player.
    • Crushing FearCrushing Fear - Inflicts 2,500,000 Shadow damage every 2 sec. for 30 sec. This effect stacks.
  • Chains of SargerasChains of Sargeras - Inflicts 500,000 Shadow damage every 2 sec. as long as the player is attached to the Chains of Sargeras. This effect stacks.
    • Breaking the chain will cause Shattered BondsShattered Bonds - 1,500,000 Shadow damage every 2 sec. for 10 sec.

The latest Patch 7.3.2 PTR build added a couple of interesting spells and a distinct model for Argus the Unmaker, so it's possible that he will serve as a host for Sargeras during the secret phase. Argus will at some point transform (Argus Mythic TransformArgus Mythic Transform) and look like this:

The Mythic Dungeon Journal entry for Argus the Unmaker is different at this time. It does not mention any Constellar Designates in stage 3 like other difficulties do and there's no stage 4. We'll have to wait and see to figure it out, but we can speculate that the transformation occurs at around 40%.

Stage Three: The Arcane Masters

Mythic Difficulty Description: When Argus reaches 40% health, he is sufficiently weakened such that Aman'thul is able to subdue him with a Temporal BlastTemporal Blast. Or - so it seems...

It is worth noting that either a few of the abilities functions or name have a striking resemblance to the Lich King raid encounter:

 

1. "Kill everyone" effect (unavoidable, even with immunities)

 

2. "Shattered bonds" name is a reference to Tirion fordring in his speech during the encounter "Highlord Tirion Fordring yells: LIGHT, GRANT ME ONE FINAL BLESSING. GIVE ME THE STRENGTH... TO SHATTER THESE BONDS!"

 

3. "Ress everyone" effect which also coincides with text:

a.  "Terenas Menethil II yells: Rise up, champions of the Light!"

b. "Essence of Eonar: Arise, champions!"

 

4. "Unshackled Rage" ability name is a play on "My mightiest servants have fallen before your relentless onslaught, your unbridled fury..." that the lich king quotes.

 

There's probably a couple more that I caught during these weeks but forgot as time passed.

I wouldn't be shocked if all of those things did play into the 'secret phase' - everyone and everything the Legion destroyed over the course of WOW, coming home to roost for the grand finale.

      There's more class changes coming to the PTR and Visions of N'zoth, as Discipline Priests' Schism will only increase damage done from Priest effects only. For other class changes, featuring more Priest tweaks, as well as Druid, Mage, Monk, Paladin and Warlock entries, check out our initial coverage of patch 8.3.

      I’ve added the following new fix to the notes in the OP:

      There's been a lot of feedback on the Auction House changes introduced on the PTR and today Blizzard have responded to a lot of it, with some answers about how the AH will work in general, as well as PTR specific issues.
      Auction House (source)
      We think you can do this by using a combination of the “Uncollected Only” checkbox in the filter dropdown and the Armor/Weapon categories on the left.
      ...
      All versions of the same pet will be grouped in the same page. Since the auctions on that page will be mix of various levels, rarities, and stats, it’ll be up to the buyer to determine which pet they want to buy.
      ...
      At this time, we’re continuing with the 48-hour max duration the WoW auction house has always had.
      ... Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback so far!
      Here are some known issues that will be fixed on upcoming PTR builds:
      Dressing Room support (CTRL click) Linking to chat (Shift click) Durations showing the wrong times Then there's a lot of responses to current issues that are either PTR specific, or will be resolved quickly:
      AH (source)
      We don’t have wildcard functionality, but you can simply search for the first few words (example: Notorious Combatant’s Intuitive Staff) and it will return all items matching that.
        Not at this time, but thank you for the suggestion.
        The “Uncollected Only” filter will return all items that you don’t have the appearance for. As a result, you may see several items for the same appearance.
        There is a “Usable Only” filter that will only show you recipes you can learn.
        Not at this time, but thank you for the feedback.
        Not at this time, but thank you for the suggestion.
      ... Thanks! We’re aware of duration displays issues, and we’re working on that right now.

      In Visions of N'Zoth, you will be able to purchase crates which contain items tied to specific Islands and invasions from a new vendor. Therefore, do not spend your dubloons until Patch 8.3 hits live servers.
      As you probably know, each Island has specific items tied to it ranging from battle pets, mounts, toys up to transmogs that you can get upon finishing an Island Expedition. We've datamined two categories of items that will be available for sale in Patch 8.3 from a new vendor.
      The first category includes Island-specific crates which cost 175 Seafarer's Dubloons each and you can purchase three at a time, depending on the Island Expeditions that are available during that week:
      Crestfall Salvage Dread Chain Salvage Havenswood Salvage Jorundall Salvage Rotting Mire Salvage Skittering Hollow Salvage Snowbloosom Salvage Molten Cay Salvage Un'gol Ruins Salvage Verdant Wilds Salvage Whispering Reef Salvage The second category are invasion-specific crates which cost 75 Seafarer's Dubloons each:
      Elemental Salvage contain items from Elemental invasions. Venture Co 'Salvage' contain items from Tol'vir and Black Dragon invasions. Other Patch 8.3 Content:

      Here come some more hotfixes for both retail and Classic, with the Classic side just being the already mentioned Dire Maul bug fix for stacking tribute buffs. On the BfA side we have higher chances for R4 Condensed Life-Force drops off Azshara, PvP fixes for Conflagration and more, increased gold rewards for weekly Island Expedition quests and Naga invasions for rank 70 neck holders and a lot more!
      October 16 (source)
      Items
      Increased the chances for someone who does not have a Rank 4 Condensed Life-Force (Essence) to loot it from Queen Azshara (Mythic difficulty). Pet Battles
      Fixed an issue that allowed some battle pets to become invincible after being resurrected in battle by Finduin or Gillvanas. Player versus Player
      Fixed an issue that caused Fire Mages’ Conflagration (Talent) to interfere with PvP diminishing returns on enemy targets. Resolved an issue that prevented characters that have not yet obtained their 9th weekly Conquest’s Reward from gaining the Spoils of War buff (50% bonus Conquest) during Rated Arenas and Rated Battlegrounds. Quests
      The weekly Island Expeditions quests, “Azerite for the Horde ” and “Azerite for the Alliance ” now reward 2,000 gold for players with a maximum-level Heart of Azeroth (level 70). World Quests
      Naga Incursions now award gold or war resources to players who can no longer progress their Heart of Azeroth (level 70). WoW Classic
      The buffs obtained from the guards in Dire Maul North after completing a tribute run will no longer stack.

      Ny'alotha, the Waking City is the raid where we deal with N'Zoth and his forces and the armor is obviously heavily-inspired by the Old Gods. Today, we're looking at Cloth sets from the new raid.
