      • Void Eruption damage increased by 700%.
      • Shadow Crash cooldown reduced to 20 seconds (was 30 seconds), Insanity generation increased to 20 (was 15), and Missile speed increased by 60%.
      • Mind Sear (Passive) damage increased by 50%.
      • Heart of the Void (Legendary) increases Void Eruption’s damage by 75% (was 300%) and heals you for 25% (was 40%) of the damage done.
        • Developers’ note: This is compensation for the Void Eruption buff. The overall effect is mostly neutral.
      • Shadow Word: Pain damage reduced by 4%.
      • Vampiric Touch damage reduced by 4%.
        • Developers’ note: This is compensation for the Void Eruption buff in extended fights.

    especially since it's subjective anyways, since I doubt many people here have the education or background in cinematography to actually objectively dissect the cinematics.
    Thanks for that enlightening share where you first tell me that I've "got no ground to stand on", and then you oddly enough make a 180 and confirm that it's all subjective anyway, which was exactly my point and ground to begin with.

    GG you.

    Wowee, r00dest d00d in town.

    Maybe something better than Sargeras going "Nooo"? Illidan doing something else than showing his nasty grin when Sargeras gets put on the chair?

    What would you do if you were literally on the cusp of fulfilling your millennia-long goal and suddenly got fucked over by an ex machina? Shrug it off and say, "oh well, it can wait another billion years?"

    As for Illidan, again, what do you expect him to do when he's finally got Sargeras right in front of him, with the other Titans restraining him so he can't fight back? NOT give a shit-eating grin? That wouldn't be Illidan's character.

This is just the Titans (or are they still just the Keepers??) doing the work for us and Sargeras doesn't even appear threatening; he's already defeated in the cinematic. Ugh and why did they have to shove Illidan into this cinematic; he's so overused this expansion. Just so bad.
    How the fuck is he not threatening? He is bigger than a planet, not sure how you want something more threatening than someone who can cleave planets in half. Also illidan was used perfectly as the jailer, people who moan about illidan probably don't understand character development or his garbage TBC lore, which i wish was retconned.

    Did ICC Heroic have an extra fight or lich king a extra cinematic? Did Madness of Deathwing have another phase? Ok Garrosh and Archimomde had extra phase but no video. I'm not so sure if we will get anything special from mythic except another phase maybe.

    Maybe it's because the cinematic is out of context since I've not done the raid but I don't really have any idea what is going on. I thought summoning anyone to Azeroth, especially Sargeras, was a massive deal but then he's just kind of there anyway? What has stopped him from stabbing it with his big sword in the past?

    he had time to aim he should have gone for orgrimmar. at least then his whole demon invasion would have accomplished something.
    I kind of feel that they chose Silithus because it's the most expendable zone, but at the same time maybe there was a reason... If Sargeras is trying to rid Azeroth of void, maybe Silithus was a good place to aim for because of the previous presence of C'Thun

    the cataclysm one was ruined by focusing on thrall's baby

    pandaria was actually ok it was neat how they had one for alliance and one for horde

    and then in draenor we have "draenor is free". i think we were all just glad to be done with it and i say we including we the players, blizzard the developers, and the npcs themselves who were forced to exist in warlords of draenor

    at least for this legion ending they showed uncommon restraint by not having illidan say "he is not prepared..." at the end. good job blizzard. please give yourselves a round of applause

    he has eyes my dude you can see them in the cutscene. he could use them to see and process that visual information to pick a good place to stab his gigantic million foot long sword
    He wasn't aiming for a city to do damage to, he was aiming for Azeroth, and he kind of fucked us on this one. It's literally Azeroth's 'third death', so to speak. The damage that he did has lasting impact, some of which is Azerite.

    I see all the negative nancy's are out in full force again. Can't you people do nothing else but moan and whine about every single thing in this game?

    So you are saying you either are pro illidan or lack common sense? You do know he wont notice you right? He isnt real...

    D'oh, of course not! But I think it would've been better if Sargeras managed to pull off something so that, at least for a moment, you'd think it wouldn't work. But of course, adding some extra spice to it, they finally pull it off.

    And Illidan, again, -something else- than just that.

    Just my opinion, so you just run along now if you don't like it. ^^

    You mean it's not real? Like it's just a fictional video game or something? Nah

    Illidan is the eternal guard, not jailer, the titans are the jailers, as without their power, Sargeras would never be jailed in the first place.

    So it's likely Sargeras is under a timelock spell by Aman'thul, and not to mention titans are immune to nearly all forms of magic, damage & weapons other than the school they are weak against (fel being one of them) however Sargeras being fel/fire infused, pretty much means that whatever Illidan does, it will not have a lasting effect on Sargeras.

    And we all know what happens the day the power of the titan is depleted, and Sargeras is loose again, Illidan will be the first fatality.

    Titans in theory can't die, their essence is eternal, so I suppose not even Argus is dead, unless the consumption of his power meant the complete destruction of his essence. Azeroth will repair over time, as their essence is in a constant regenerative state, and if needed she can draw spirit power from all Azerothians to repair, and I think when we use our artifact weapons to destroy the weapon, it will lead to Azeroth repairing herself.

    I dont know if we have clear info,but from my impresion he had lost his body when he used the avatar to come in azeroth and enter the guardian,in the cinematic what i can tell is that the smoke is sargeras not that he is hidding in it,and the patheon uses the power from argus to rebuild him so he can be sealed,sargeras wasnt planing on destroying azeroth rather control it like he did with argus,but when he saw what was happening his only option left was to destroy it.

    That's headcanon, he never lost his body, avatar was so he could go on azeroth since his form is massive.
