Argus the Unmaker Defeat Cinematic

Recommended Posts

Antorus, the Burning Throne is now open and players that slain Argus the Unmaker started uploading videos of the defeat cinematic.

Note that the videos are full of spoilers!

Our friends at MMO-Champion uploaded a cinematic played before players engage Argus the Unmaker.

Argus the Unmaker Defeat Cinematic

What exactly happened?

Illidan sacrificed himself to imprison Sargeras once and for all. The crusade is over. In his final moments, Sargeras plunged his sword into Azeroth, wounding the Titan.

When we last looked at the Silithus Wound, the model of his sword was still encrypted. I believe players that defeat Argus will be able to see it, similar to how the Argus skybox was visible to players that defeated Kil'jaeden, before it was made visible to everybody.

Here's a transcript of Khadgar's new VO files:

"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."

"So there is a big-ass sword on the planet. What shall we do?"

"Why let's go at War with ourselves again, of course!"

Jokes aside, it was a such epic cinematic. Damn, man. The feels. I miss Illidan already.

I'm sure we will see why we start a war eventually. Until then, we can joke about how ridiculous it sounds. :P

I agree with the cinematic completely. This one is easily at the top of my list for the best cinematics. I've never seen anything like it. To me it even rivals the classic cinematics of wrath. Incredible.

This is the issue, even if it's clear eventually that doesn't make it any less insane. Did they learn nothing from Mists of Pandaria story telling? Even if this is the old gods doing (like we guess it should be) it makes for really lazy and shallow story crafting. They killed it with Legion, so I guess they've regained some trust... but both Panda and Warlords left them with a lot to make up for.

If they start fighting and this hole isn't totally healed and seems to be moving on, I'll lose my shit at the story. It feels so petty. Old gods powers of insanity shouldn't be a cliche as "it was all a dream" in movies.

Frankly that is my biggest beef with the storytelling so far. Its a constant cycle of hate towards one another, big evil coming, lets partner up and be buddies, and then back to it again.

And the worse of it, is that all the reasons to ignite the conflict are painfully contrived.

I agree with many of your opinions guys. It’s just hard for me to say BfA will be a failure after seeing what they did with Legion. All we can do is wait and see. It’s too early to make judgements, and all opinions at this point are valid. 

Anyways... this post is about the cinematic, which IMO is top notch. What an end to the excellent expansion that brought WoW back from the disaster known as WoD!

The Alliance and the Horde have been at war for the entirety of Legion, with there being a big new source of power in the form of Azerite due to this cinematic, they're both warring over possession of it since it has destructive capabilities. Destructive capabilities that'd be handy in destroying the enemy faction. There was a clear and distinct focus in Legion on the fact that the Class Orders are the ones taking the responsibility and defending Azeroth since the last time the Alliance and Horde tried (Broken Shore) it failed horribly.

I like how he carefully plunges his sword into Azeroth as to avoid an extinction level event.  :P

Judging on the very careful animation, it seems that WoW physics are the same as real life. Objects can only move so fast and the sword reached it's terminal velocity and you can clearly see that the very tip was burning through the atmosphere due to how fast it was moving.

Were I the only one jumping in my chair? Or is it because im the only lore w***e here? 

Not even close my friend. I got interested in lore again when Legion popped because they made it quite interesting yet again, and boy did they end it well. 

I hear so many people complaining about how they think the story for BfA will be shit but those are the people who have for some reason not regained enough faith towards blizzard after this excellent expansion. And after how they did now, I have faith that regardless of how it plays out, it will be epic, just like this is.

      As predicted in our post from a while ago, Druids will be able to customize their Bear/Cat form independently of the currently equipped Legion Artifact in Shadowlands.
      Bear/Cat Druid form tints are currently tied to your character's Hair Color and the various forms are gated behind your currently transmogrified Legion Artifact.
      In Shadowlands, however, you will be able to customize your Druid's Bear & Cat form on the character customization screen, and possibly, in the Barber Shop when it comes to existing characters.
      Note that this won't work for tints that you haven't earned.
      The ChrCustomizationChoice game table has been updated with new entries:
      Claws of Ursoc (Purple) Claws of Ursoc (Gold) Claws of Ursoc (White) Claws of Ursoc (Black) To further support this claim, Blizzard added a new game table named ChrCustomizationDisplayInfo, where they listed all DisplayIDs of the currently available Bear & Cat forms.

      Ardenweald Zone Preview (Screenshots) Fire Mage Class Changes: June 3rd Ardenweald and Night Fae Covenant (Official Preview) Oribos Portal Added to Portal Rooms in Main Cities Torghast Development Notes: June 3rd Characters Wear Fancier Armor on the Creation Screen
    • By Stan
      Restodroodopz found out that Legendaries now classify as Legacy in Shadowlands Alpha, and so their bonuses are disabled and won't work for low level characters or in Timewalking anymore.

      The Legion Legendary Sephuz's Secret is labelled as a Legacy item with inactive effects.

      The Sentinel's Eternal Refuge (BoE crafted Legion Legendary) is also marked as a Legacy item, rendering them pretty much useless.
      We did some research and checked out Wrathion's cloak (Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve Rank 12) with the primary stat increasing effect which remains untouched, so the Legacy thing only seems to apply to Legion Legendaries.

      The same goes for Legendaries from previous expansions, specifically MoP legendary cloaks and WoD rings; they are not tagged as Legacy Items and keep their effects.

      Blizzard has updated the character creation screen, making newly-created characters wear fancier, better-looking armor, to give players an idea about how their class would look wearing an armor set.
      The Demon Hunter, Druid, and Shaman set remains unchanged (thanks @Dejo93), so we're listing the remaining classes that have received new armor sets for preview. Note that the sets are there just for preview and they're not actual starter sets!
      Death Knight

      Hunter

      Mage

      Monk

      Paladin

      Priest

      Rogue

      Warlock

      Warrior

      Ardenweald Zone Preview (Screenshots) Fire Mage Class Changes: June 3rd Ardenweald and Night Fae Covenant (Official Preview) Oribos Portal Added to Portal Rooms in Main Cities Torghast Development Notes: June 3rd
    • By Starym
      We have one of the biggest Torghast updates since Alpha launched today, as all classes are now available and have anima powers, Torments have been revamped to be additional challenges instead of a timer, and a lot more Anima power tweaks, bug fixes etc.
      June 3 (source)
      All classes now have Anima Powers and can venture into Torghast.
      Many classes have received new Anima Powers that affect their Covenant Class abilities.
      Torment Update!
      Torments no longer scale with time.
      Torments are now additional challenges based on the floor types you have encountered on this run.
      Developers’ notes: We’ve heard your feedback that Torments were adding too much time pressure. The Jailer may still torment you on higher levels of Torghast, but Torments will not scale with time. Breath of Coldheart  now increases the health of enemy monsters by a flat percentage based on the number of Coldheart Interstitia floors climbed.
      Mort'regar's Echoes now increase the Magic damage enemy monsters inflict by a flat percentage based on the number of Mort’regar floors climbed.
      Might of the Upper Reaches now increases the Physical damage enemy monsters inflict by a flat percentage based on the number of Upper Reaches floors climbed.
      Developers’ notes: The changes above were inspired by feedback that Torments that reduce your power feel worse than torments that affect your enemies. As always, we will continue to tune and keep a close eye on difficulty. Rewards and Access
      Legendary materials now only drop from cell block runs, not from the Twisting Corridors.
      Developers’ notes: Looting a Resonating Chest may generate a message that says that you have received “bonus materials” for a “timely completion”. This is an artifact from a previous design that has since been removed, and can be ignored. Chests in the Twisting Corridors now drop Twisted Dust , which will be used for cosmetic rewards.
      Portals to the six cell blocks (not the Twisting Corridors) now take you to fully-randomized 6-block runs, rather than the pre-set quest run. This includes a Wayfinder on floor 1 that allows you to choose your difficulty.
      Two of Torghast’s six cell blocks are open per week. For testing purposes, the available blocks will change daily. They will change weekly in the final version of the game.
      Access to the Twisting Corridors will always be available in addition to the two theme blocks.
      Developers’ notes: Players who seek Legendary materials alone can do so in Torghast’s cell blocks, and can earn more materials by climbing higher. Players who are looking for cosmetics, or who simply want to play without pressure, can do so in the Twisting Corridors. More Notes
      This build includes many bug fixes. Thank you very much for your bug reports! Remember: Alpha is alpha. Things will still change, especially rewards, tuning, and Torghast’s interaction with outside systems. We really appreciate all of your testing and feedback. Many huge Torghast changes have arrived today.
