Week 3: Finish the Shadows of Argus storyline, unlock all World Quests, and venture into the new dungeon, the Seat of the Triumvirate. Activate your Netherlight Crucible on the Vindicaar to begin forging Relics.

Calculators Updated
All of the calculators have been updated to reflect changes coming in Patch 7.3.




Artifact Changes and the Netherlight Crucible
The Netherlight Crucible empowers your artifact, increasing the item level and adding new and existing traits for your relics.

  • As soon as you hit Level 110 on a character, all of your relic slots are unlocked right away.
  • You no longer have to do the Broken Shore quest line to allow your artifact to go beyond 34 points.
  • As soon as you hit 110 in Patch 7.3 you will have Level 41 Artifact Knowledge. After that it will increase weekly automatically, no more research required.
  • The Netherlight Crucible is unlocked account wide in Week 3, allowing you to increase the item level and select traits on each Relic slot.
  • Hidden Appearances and Challenge Appearances no longer require you to use your spec's specific hidden or challenge artifact appearance to unlock the others.



New Dungeon - Seat of the Triumvirate
The Seat of the Triumvirate dungeon will unlock for Week 3. Don't miss all of the dungeon item level and keystone changes in the official notes!

Legendary Ring - Insignia of the Grand Army
Patch 7.3 adds a new legendary ring, Insignia of the Grand Army!

  • This ring is a reward from The Death of a Titan, which requires you to defeat the soul of Argus in Antorus, the Burning Throne.
  • This means that the ring will not be available with the release of Patch 7.3, but instead with the release of the raid coming in Patch 7.3: Antorus, the Burning Throne
  • The ring's effect increases the effects of Light and Shadow powers granted by the Netherlight Crucible by 50%.

    When do we hit August 29 exactly? Its almost 30 and the patch isn't out yet.

    So a new raid is coming out, and only 32 guilds to date have completed the current raid.
    Either it's too early for another raid, WoW's population has dropped to catastrophically low levels, or the current tuning for end bosses is way too hard.

    No. Raid is 7.3.5.

    Also you are right. It's tuning. KJ was tuned way too high which Blizzard admitted.

    You can't judge the population of a game by Mythic raiders either. They are the minority.

    You've been downloading chunks of it in the background for a while now. It's in the tens of Gb.

    It says in the launcher that the realms won't be available from 7:00 AM PDT to 11:00 AM PDT. Convert that to your local time.

    The article says, under the new legendary ring, said that the "raid [is] coming in Patch 7.3: Antorus, the Burning Throne", leading me to think it was coming sometime before 7.3.5.
    And yes, KJ and the previous boss or 2 are overtuned - despite KJ being nerfed at least twice already since the world first for weeks now. Seems the difficulty level is still not quite right for this many good guilds to still be struggling.

    As for mythic raiders being the minority, of course they are. But traditionally, the clear rates have been somewhere around 1-3%. Currently they're at 0.09% of all raiders.

    Blizzard is very bad at communicating.

    It looks like you need to finish a quest on Argus first. I got one that says to finish a champion mission that takes about 11 hours, and then I'll get access to Argus champion missions and champion gear.

    Does this mean that we are FINALLY going to get a decent-sized hairdressing window?
