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.

      A Mythic only phase video, many Aggramar kills and Method GM Sco explains why Argus isn't dead yet in detail.
      It's been a few days since we've checked in on the Antorus Mythic progress race, but not that much has happened since then as, thankfully, Argus is still alive! The big news is that a whole bunch of guilds got past Aggramar, resulting in us getting some footage of the Mythic-only phase of Argus the Unmaker, courtesy of Chinese guild Style War:
      You can also follow Style War live as they tackle Argus Mythic right here:

      Everything started with Finnish guilds Memento getting the World 4th on Aggramar, catching up to the standard top 3 of Method, Exorsus and Limit, followed by the above mentioned Style War, who managed to nab the Asia first as well. Bleached Bones (EU 4th)  were next on the Argus access train, followed by Alpha (Asia 2nd), ScrubBusters (EU 5th) and Easy (US/OC 2nd), and so we now have 9 guilds progressing on the probably final boss of Legion. We then have a large group consisting of 22 guilds that have downed Coven of Shivarra and are at Aggramar's door, with another 11 still fighting the Coven. Today should bring Method's Aggramar World First video, which will swiftly be followed by Limit's and perhaps Exorsus' own videos as well, so stay tuned for that.
      Today also saw Method's GM Sco reveal the very complex and intricate reason why they still hadn't killed Argus, as he explains in this video:
      As the second reset approaches, Method and Exorsus still have 2 days to make Antorus into quite an easy race, whereas Limit only have one to finish it all up before the significant influx of gear that is the 2nd round of clears. With so many bosses dying on the first and second days, it's at least a little bit of a relief that Argus wasn't that much of a pushover. Now let's see if he can salvage the entire raid by living a bit longer.

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a growing raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of four within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.

      We care more about the people we play with than their item levels or progression rankings. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      We are 5/11-Heroic 11/11-Normal Antorus, having killed every boss we've pulled.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid.
      We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for raiding the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      DPS: YES. We badly need RANGED DPS, but exceptional melee will be considered, particularly mail.
      Healers: MAYBE. We'd like a restoration/balance druid who can dps as well as they can heal and are okay being expected to play either role.
      Tank: NO. No current needs.

      The Nitty Gritty
      If you're intrigued, please check out our wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit. This will give you the inside picture on how we operate as a raid team.

      Our Patch 7.3.5 zone preview continues with Fate's Veil, Forge of Aeons, and more.
      Patch 7.3.5 adds several new zones to the game and it looks like they might be used for scenarios.
      Fate's Veil (Void Elves Unlock Scenario)
      The zone is very similar to the the in Locus-Walker & Alleria quest chain in Mac'Aree, possibly related to Void Elves. It has a cool skybox with Old God infested planets.

      Forge of Aeons (Lightforged Draenei Unlock Scenario)

      The Sunwell

      Uuna Scenario
      A new zone called "A Dark Place" was added in Patch 7.3.5. It's referred to as "Uuna Scenario" in the game files. Not much information is available at this time, but you probably came across Uuna on Argus. Uuna's Doll drops from an ur'zul elite (The Many-Faced Devourer). It's most likely going to be some sort of solo content, where players help Uuna.

      Patch 7.3.5 Coverage
      Alleria & Turalyon Return to Azeroth Allied Races Heritage Armor Allied Races Mounts in Battle for Azeroth Call of the Scarab Micro-Holiday Mounts Faction Embassies in Patch 7.3.5 Highmountain Tauren Druid Forms in Battle for Azeroth Development Notes: Build 25600 Seething Shore Battleground Preview Uninstanced Version of the Nighthold (Allied Races Hub for the Nightborne) Zone Scaling & Zone Level Caps in Patch 7.3.5
