Argus the Unmaker Defeat Cinematic

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.

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.

      Transmog collectors and the community are not particularly happy with personal loot rules used in leveling dungeons since Patch 7.3.5 launch. Blizzard will be reverting the change back in Battle for Azeroth by activating something called "legacy loot mode".
      How Will Legacy Loot Mode Work?
      The loot mode will activate automatically upon entering a dungeon or raid that's trivial for you (your character is 10+ levels higher than the dungeon or raid's intended level). The number of items dropped by bosses will be the same as it would have been if you were in a full party or raid. All items on the loot table will have a chance to drop, regardless of your set Loot Specialization. Loot will be tradable and split among members of your party or raid. You can learn more about transmog in our section!
      Blizzard (Source)
      Since the Patch 7.3.5 change to use personal loot rules in leveling dungeons, we’ve heard a lot of feedback from Transmog hunters concerned about how this has affected the ability to collect appearances from older content. We hear you, and agree it’s a problem, so we’ve been working on a more robust solution for Battle for Azeroth. Once these updates are implemented, entering a dungeon or raid that is trivial for you (i.e.: your character is 10 or more levels higher than the dungeon or raid’s intended level) will activate a “legacy loot mode.” That loot mode will work like this:
      The number of items dropped by bosses will be the same as it would have been if you were in a full party. So if you’re in a 5-player dungeon, you’ll get 5 players’ worth of loot. For raids with a flexible raid size (such as Raid Finder), this will act as though there were 20 players in the raid. All items on the loot table will have a chance to drop, not just the ones that are designated for your spec. If you have multiple players in the group, the loot will be split among those players, but be tradeable. For example, if you’re clearing with one other player and kill a boss that should drop 4 items, you’ll each be able to pick up two items and trade them between each other if you like. While the personal loot change was a key part of what allowed us to expand leveling dungeons to encompass a wider range of levels, and we’re happy with it in that environment, we recognize that it’s not a great experience for those who enjoy clearing older content for transmog, and hope that these changes will make that more enjoyable once they’re complete. 
      Thanks again for all of the feedback!

      Today we get some Argus mission cost tweaks, Demonic Gateway fixes, a huge timewalking Pit of Saron nerf, and an improvement for the legendary tokens, generating items for other classes if you have all legendaries for your class.
      February 20 (source)
      Classes
      Warlock Fixed a bug that allowed Demonic Gateways to be placed in unintended spots. Class Halls
      Argus missions that award Blood of Sargeras now cost 600 more Order Hall Resources. This will not be correctly reflected in the Legion Companion App until its next version update. Developers’ notes: Completing these missions with bonus rewards previously returned more Order Hall Resources than they cost. Rather than reduce their yield, we’ve increased the cost of the missions so that players with ample Order Hall Resources can convert them to tradeskill materials. Dungeons and Raids
      Pit of Saron The health of most enemies in Pit of Saron has been reduced by 50% in Timewalking. Items
      If you have all Legion Legendary items for your class, consuming a class-specific item that generates a Legion Legendary item will now always generate a token for another class. Heritage of the Ren'dorei now contains the Ren'dorei Cloak. NPCs
      Hatecoil Spitespeaker should no longer instantly respawn. Princess Poobah should no longer unexpectedly stop offering quests. Quests
      "The Emerald Dreamcatcher" is no longer weekly. The starting location for "Teldrassil: The Burden of the Kaldorei" should now correctly be displayed on the map. Mature Silkwing again have a chance to softly drop Iridescent Wings for “The Softest Wings”. Previous patch 7.3.5 hotfixes:
