Argus

Argus should have been its own expansion When I sat down to play patch 7.3, my first thought was: this is what Legion should have been all along. After thinking about it, I revised that opinion. Legion should not have been Argus, because Legion is a perfectly fine expansion. Rather, Argus should have been an expansion unto itself. Legion? More like Anything But The Legion...

Know Your Lore: Gift of the Naaru The concept of destiny is a powerful thing in World of Warcraft. It’s a big, weighty word — one that has written the fates of both heroes and villains in lore. It was destiny that Arthas would eventually fall to corruption and become the Lich King. It was prophesized that Jaina Proudmoore would eventually lead...




🔒 Invasion Points: Previewing future expansions? When Blizzard announced we were going to Argus, I couldn’t help but wonder what’s next. Normally new planets and gathering systems are reserved for new expansions. In confronting the Burning Legion head-on, we’re nearing the end of the Titan storyline, which opens up new stories. Obviously N’zoth is a threat we haven’t dealt with, and...

Know Your Lore: Shadows of Argus Q&A This is a bit of a swerve for this column, but I get asked a lot of questions on Twitter and via email about patch 7.3 and things that we’ve seen and experienced since it dropped. So in this particular edition of Know Your Lore, I’m going to take some time and look at them....

Patch 7.3 Invasion Points and You: Enjoyable or death-traps? Tuesday’s continuation of the Argus storyline also brought us new Invasion Points. Instead of the Legion invading our world where we have to race to fight them back, we find portals where the Legion is invading other worlds and we must go oust them. The Invasion Points work relatively the same way the pre-Legion invasions...

Argus won’t have flying, now or in the future We knew ahead of time that Argus would not have flying. However, it’s rubbing a lot of players the wrong way as they venture to the new planet only to find demons as far as the eye can see. Ornyx popped in on the official forums to offer some insight into the lack of flying...




What helps you keep up with everything added to WoW? It’s not too hard to see that World of Warcraft’s patch 7.3 added a lot of new content to the game. Obviously, the big deal is Argus and its three zones — which, combined with all of the new World Quests they bring with them, is a lot all its own. But 7.3 didn’t just...

When are you taking your alts to Argus? I’ve never really been someone to stray away from my Priest for very long. Sure, I eventually build up a small battalion of alts thanks to the ease of leveling, but I tend to play them sparingly. If I run out of things to do on my Priest or — more likely — want to...



Did you go to Argus yet? Patch 7.3 has been out for a day or so as I write this, and so there’s been enough time to have at least started on Argus. There are cinematics to be amazed and shocked by, quests to be completed, and World Quests to unlock. Just on my first day there I found myself constantly...

Bugged on your way to Argus? Log on your main in 7.3 If you’re having trouble taking a character to Argus, you may be experiencing a bug related to completion of the Broken Shore scenario. Namely, if you’re trying to go on a character that skipped the Broken Shore, you may not be able to properly continue. The solution seems to be to log on whichever character...

The Queue: It’s our Destiny 2 go to Argus

…Get it? Because Destiny 2 open beta starts today but also patch 7.3 and Argus are hitting WoW. It’s the cleverest play on words ever.

(I can’t believe I still have a job here.)


What has you excited about patch 7.3? We have the official announcement from Gamescom, the cinematic with ol’ Illidan proving himself a people person throwing shade at Velen, and we know that tomorrow, we’re going to Argus for the final showdown with the Legion. This is something we’ve been building up to since before World of Warcraft. And in the narrative, this is...

Patch 7.3’s Invasion Points bring the fight against the Legion to many worlds There’s a lot of content coming with patch 7.3’s Shadows of Argus storyline. One new way to get loot and fight a greater challenge than farming World Quests is the new Invasion Point system we can unlock in week two of the patch. Blizzard set up a preview so players can figure out just what this...

Blizzard previews patch 7.3’s Argus campaign It’s time to end the Legion or die trying. That’s the basic premise behind patch 7.3’s enormous Shadows of Argus storyline. This isn’t just the story Legion has been building up to. It’s the story World of Warcraft has been building up to for years. Perhaps even the entire Warcraft franchise has led up to this moment. As befits...

Check out what to expect on Tuesday with Blizzard’s patch 7.3 survival guide If you’re wondering what you’re going to be doing once patch 7.3 drops, Blizzard has you covered. Watching this video from the fine folks at Blizzard will explain how to get to Argus, how to upgrade your Artifact relics, how to find and close Invasion Points and fight the upcoming World Bosses, and a lot...

Official World of Warcraft 7.3 patch notes are finally here You didn’t think an awesome new cinematic was all the World of Warcraft news we would get from Gamescom, did you? With patch 7.3: Shadows of Argus rolling out next week, we now have the final patch notes. (Or at least the final patch notes until the first round of hotfixes.) And if that isn’t enough,...
