    There will be different wings to do every week, and the Twisting Corridors will occur once S1 begins on December 10th. Blizzard also stated they're going to expand upon Torghast within each patch. Hopefully, this isn't like another Isle Expeditions, where they basically lie, and the shit does infact become boring/stale. I hope not tho.

    Probably just means each Pantheon is more connected with each-other than we thought. Which could make sense, as the Titans were dealing with the Void for a bit, even though the Light and Shadow are pure opposites. And that was before the Cosmic Chart flipped itself over and got fucked in the anus.

    The biggest failure of Torghast would be to not have enough anima powers ot make runs varied. Roguelikes live and die on each run feeling different from previous ones, and for classes like Hunter Torghast could easily become stale if the only thing that changes is how many extra buttons you get.

    I don't know if this has been mentioned already, but has anyone noticed the similarities between the Ember Ward in Revendreth and AU Draenor? As stated in the Mag'har recruitment scenario, the very world of Draenor is dying. The sky is turning cloudy and green-ish, the forested areas of Gorgrond vanished, the wind is scorching, there is a dessication affecting the region. Similarly, the Ember Ward looks like a dessicated, scorched desert.

    Previously I thought Draenor was "dying" because the connection between this alternate dimension and Azeroth was starting to weaken and unravel, but now I wonder if the Light actually scorched the planet ala the Ember Ward. I also wonder if this can be added to the already enormous list of elements that foreshadow the Light expansion.

    So far I have found it fun enough. Not something I think I would run with out rewards but I've done it 4 times (1-3 for first wing and layer 3 for second wing) and still had fun. Each time I've gotten slightly different combination of powers that things turned out to be slightly different. Longevity though might be difficult but it does seem like the concept is super easy to add new content or stuff to in minor patches.

    I just wish some things persisted for each run. I got the harness to turn me into a mawrat last run and would have been cool to get to keep it for all runs. I also got a second follower already from it so maybe I am luckier then most.

    I was thinking more that it was a reference to Elune rather then the Titan's. And Elune was related to what the Jailer did to get in trouble or wasn't part of the original pact that set up the power dynamics of the Shadowlands. Though either way Blizzard has left the nature of Elune ambiguous so far that she could be anything. I just don't see them doing to much Titan related this time other then as indirect links or explanations.

    This expansion seems to be about expanding the lore beyond the existing themes since we've pretty much used all of those up.

    It might be that those two aren't all that unrelated, with AUs dying because the forces become to heavily unbalanced. None of them work in a way that would be long-term supportable without the others to balance them.

    Most of the persistent upgrades so far seem to be from Ve'nari. It's not unexpected, though; that's roguelikes for you. Most of what you keep is knowledge.

    I'm starting to think more and more that it was just Denathrius who broke the machine of Death. What hit the Arbiter looked like a generic Venthyr magic blast, and in the Revendreth questline it's revealed that Denathrius was responsible for the anima drought (Arbiter breaks -> Every soul goes only to the Maw -> anima drought for the other realms). Also, the red blast doesn't follow the trajectory of the souls going to the Arbiter, which means that it wasn't a soul.

    I think we all believed the answer would be an event from Legion that would tie the two expansions together, but that was never the premise. Blizzard never downright specified that what broke the machine was an event we already witnessed in-game.

    So Yeah, I thought Argus' soul broke the Arbiter, but now I think it was just Denathrius. It's definitely more boring, but oh well.

    It does sound more boring yeah, and seems kinda basic and not very well thought. I mean if one of the Pantheon of Death can so easily break the Arbiter, why wouldnt the others be able to restore her back? Anyway, we'll see.

    It could be Denathrius doing it... by using Argus.

    True Nathrezim 5D chess way would be to manipulate both Legion and Azerothians in way that would end up with corrupted Titan of Death dying and knocking out the Arbiter.

    Sounds like a reasonable theory, even more so if we assume there will be some adde layers to it. Things like Helya needing to be sent to the Shadowlands, or the lantern breaking, or any of tthe myriad things that have happened. Doesnt just need to be Denathrius deciding the time was right to start chucking bloodbolts on the Arbiter.

    Probably a bunch of pieces clicking together, with Denathrius simply deciding that now is a good time to start knocking over the disaster dominoes. Certainly makes more sense than all the overcomplicated 5d chess plans, especially since it becomes blatantly obvious Denathrius has been scheming against the others for eons.

    Introduce the monkey wrench.

    I wonder what the Larion/Phalynx choice will he used for in future patches. Free mount? The BFA Kul Tiran ship name you choosed wasn’t used again, but it could appear in the future.

    Also I suspect every covenant will get a free innate flying mount but unsure the species for each. Kyrian might get the owl horse, Venthyr could get a dire bat, Night Fae may get a Sylvar winged dragon (that is different enough from the shop mount) and Necrolords... don’t know.

    I belive the choice is just an artifact of a previous stage of development where Kyrian players had to choose between getting Phalynx or Larion mounts from the covenant rewards.
    I believe it was removed because it didnt do much more than further restrict an already restricted pool of mounts, not to mention Blizzard likely didnt manage to find anything similar for other covenants.

    Yeah, basically this. Though, it's not the Death Titan's soul that fucked the Arbiter. It was the corrupted magics from Argus returning to the area they originated from, which corrupted the Arbiter, imo.

    ok lets say for the sake of argument that it was simply denathrius
    its possible but i cant think of anything more boring

    now the dagger saying that killing argus allowed them a great victory...what if she wasnt working for the void since they seemingly betrayed her. She could be working with denathrius and the jailer and the whole "the victory here as helped us open the way" might have been because with the death of the titan of death then there is not check in place as like a secret weapon to stop the jailer. Its like taking the hulk and Thor away from the avengers.

    im doubting there was any corruption energy though i mean he was red but maybe that was his true magic at least based on the mechanics

    Generally Death Magic uses Blue and Black visuals. Red and Black currently only come from Revendreth's Anima infused spells. Argus started with regular Blue and Black, and switched to Red in Mythic phase.

    50-60 in about 13 hours doing nothing besides mining & herbing, making about 580k gold on my realm in the process. Can't moan at that In time for a round of M0s tomorrow as well!
