    Well it looks like a crater aint it.
    But maidens reporting sigh.
    I bet an Algalon v2 will appear this time to eradicate the titan itself (y i know as far as i knwo the pantheon opposed sargies kill-titan-before-corrupted option but we know how bliz behaves to the lore)

    After you complete the scenario everyone in Dalaran freaking out. I imagine it's because Argus is visible to all players on the server now.(?) The streets were full of panicked and worried citizens, there's a much bigger guard presence, draenei from the Exodar were wandering around trying to spread hope, and "Validated Doomsayers" were handing out yet more pamphlets.

    The grand majority of these pamphlets talk about Argus's sudden appearance and how we're even more screwed now than we were during the pre-patch events. (One of them actually started with "Sargeras did nothing wrong.") Pretty neat to have the events of ToS actually reflected in the world a bit.

    I'd hoped they would acknowledge the visibility of Argus in some capacity, but that really exceeds my personal expectations.

    You may hate me for doing this, but I just gotta make an RP thing:

    Everyone: WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!

    Me: Uh...hey...guys...I'm still...here.

    Everyone: WE'RE DOOMED! SARGERAS IS GONNA SLAY US ALL!

    Me: Uhh hello?! Awesome...standing right here.

    Everyone: RUN AWAY! THE LEGION WON!

    Me: Ya know what? All of you better step aside, cause I don't want to accidently slap you with my dick!

    *Earns The Titanslayer title, while also sealing away Sargeras*

    Me: EZ!

    N'zoth: Sup bitch.

    Me: DAMN IT!

    It's how Titan tech is presented since Vanilla WoW.

    Personally, after a while and noting others ideas... I came to the conclusion that Il'gynoth has pretty much been talking always about persons above the PCs or similar denizens of Azeroth.
    How would they know individually who people are when there's a fair few on Azeroth? Since their goal is to corrupt, you wouldn't really go for lowest of the low in power level unless they elevated themselves to being known I guess. But the best bet would be to go after the Titanic creations and such - one that you know exist from eons ago and related objects that are known to have more power in the first place (and there's plenty of them).

    That being said I came to the conclusion that what Il'gynoth might know is that Y'shaarj was pulled out from Azeroth to make a crater; the Well of Eternity and though the blood from the Titan has filled it... It could relate to heart issues and why Azeroth is struggling to be 'born'.
    After that wound I mean it could quite possibly have been contaminated because even with Y'Shaarj dead, you had manifestations still haunting Pandaria... It could be possible they can do other things beyond their death.

    I kind of like how it stands apart from the more general "sword and sorcery" aesthetic - giving the impression that the Titans were truly above and beyond most of the mortal races of their universe. I'll admit it can get a bit thick in places, but on an "every so often" type of basis I don't think it necessarily interferes with the ongoing story-arcs.

    That being said I'm also a fan of stories that blend elements from multiple genres, so long as it is done well - YMMV, of course.

    Tbh, I think the reason why Sargeras himself could never find Azeroth is because of that layer that's surrounding Azeroth, the little opening we see is probably the area that was exposed when Illidan used the keystone.

    It's probably been hidden all along.

    Well thats the thing - when I started playing warcraft if was a generic yet very charming fantasy with Azeroth being nothing more than a planet. Now its a f...ing titan with a heart that has 'minor arrhythmia'. And nothing in the past expansions pointed at this. In my opinion this retcon business Blizzard is running went a little bit too far. It ok for me to have ideas bigger than life, but this stuff they pouring at us, as characters in this fantasy world we shouldn't be able to even comprehend these things, let alone be anywhere near it. Only then it could work. But this blatant use of sci-fi tropes completely demystifying the fantasy behind it, which I find bothering.

    well, I've never claimed to be a lore nerd, but I'm pretty sure whole Titans are born within planets is rather new addition to the lore. Relatively speaking ofc, but I remember times when Sargeras was actually corrupted by demons, not the other way around.

    Orgrimmar Interceptor^ Alliance counterpart called Stormwind Skychaser, they're probably the Blizzcon bonuses this year? Maybe?

    The problem rises with not all Artifacts being equal in-lore. Someone stealing shite like Outlaw Rogue weapon isn't that big of a deal. But someone stealing (or just getting and then going lolevil because of the Class in question) Ulthalesh or Specter of Sargeras would wield godlike power while freeing the weapons from lore grey-zone that is them being wielded by the player. Though I suppose it could open up new enemies to explore for the future. People wielding the Artifacts would make for interesting boss fights.

    Just think about what you just said for a second.

    How would any sunlight get to Azeroth if 80% of it is covered in cloud/fog/mist this dense?
    This fog shows up during the last part of the raid, hence the reason Illidan saying "We might have won, but look at the sky".

    The corpse is wherever the raid kills Lei-Shen. And the quest text outright talks about draining the room, through the dais, so I have no idea what you read. Reading just the last sentence and ignoring the context for it from all the other sentences is a terrible way to construct an argument.

    This was a beautiful way of putting it. Thank you for this.

    Well, they run their tendrils through the worlds they corrupt, so it makes sense.

    well, people turning crazy is to be expected when a massive green glowing space rock shows up out of nowhere, that is also the homebase of an army of greenish space demons.
