Yesterday, the final boss of Antorus the Burning Throne was tested on Heroic difficulty. Here's a video preview of the encounter.

WoWReloe uploaded a video of the fight, where the raid team managed to bring him down to 26%. All stages and transition phases included, so definitely check it out!

Stage 3

At 5:47 during the second transition phase, Argus retreats and Constellar Designates spawn.

The Discs of NorgannonThe Discs of Norgannon grants each Constellar Designate a 200% increased damage vulnerability from a single school.

Vulnerability Types

You need to be careful with interrupts, because of Impending InevitabilityImpending Inevitability. When you interrupt a Constellar Designate, he will become immune to interrupts for the next 20 seconds (InevitabilityInevitability), so you should interrupt Cosmic BeaconCosmic Beacon over StarblastStarblast.

Periodically, Constellar Designates will enter melee range and gain the effects of Blades of the EternalBlades of the Eternal and Sword of the CosmosSword of the Cosmos.

Stage 4

When you reach Stage 4, Argus kills all players with Reap SoulReap Soul. It's very similar to the Lich King encounter back in Wrath. You're not able to resurrect for a short time and then Eonar casts Gift of the LifebinderGift of the Lifebinder, creating a tree that can be used to return players back to life, as long as it it is healed up (Withering RootsWithering Roots). 

  • Gift of the LifebinderGift of the Lifebinder - Eonar causes the Gift of the Lifebinder to spring forth to save the players. While the Gift of the Lifebinder lives, players may freely Release Spirit after dying. If players move to the tree as ghosts, they will be returned to life, at the cost of some of the Gift of the Lifebinder's Life Energy. When the Gift of the Lifebinder's Life Energy is depleted, it becomes the Withered Gift of the Lifebinder.
    • Withered Gift of the Lifebinder
      • Players may heal the Withered Gift of the Lifebinder. Additionally, when they use it to resurrect, it is afflicted by Withering Roots.
        • Withering RootsWithering Roots - Inflicts 850,000 Nature damage every 2 sec. This effect stacks.

The tank debuff gets nasty in the last stage and lasts until the fight is over (Deadly ScytheDeadly Scythe). In the final stage, Reorigination Modules will spawn and they need to be killed as soon as possible to decrease radius of their Initialization SequenceInitialization Sequence.

For all Argus' abilities, check out the Dungeon Journal entry here. Argus will probably have a secret phase on Mythic difficulty involving Sargeras.
