Argus has its own lore museum to preserve its pre-Legion culture In patch 7.3, you’ll encounter the Krokul, the eredar who refused to join Sargeras on Argus. The invasion of the Army of the Light liberated some of the Krokul slaves, and they have been hiding from the Legion in Krokuun — where we arrive when we first land in Argus. The Krokul keep a small...

Patch 7.3’s Netherlight Crucible receives clarifications about its progression system The Netherlight Crucible has been a host of misunderstandings, to say the least.

Unfortunately, the system has been fraught with issues and remains so...

Family Fighter battle pet achievement, plus a plethora of new pets in patch 7.3 With a new PTR build, there’s always a mix of discovery, as people stumble across things, and datamining, as Wowhead stumbles across things.

Azeroth sends a warning in patch 7.3 with Whispers of a Frightened World scenario Continuing the theme of delving into ancient Titanic vaults, in patch 7.3 we have a brand new scenario with Magni Bronzebeard — and it seems to be the catalyst that actually prompts our expedition to Argus. In the pre-Legion comic and quest with Magni, we learned that he was now in communion with the world-soul...

New Validated Doomsayers return to pester us in patch 7.3 They’ve been coming around since Cataclysm and they’re not done yet — our friends the Doomsayers have taken a level in Validation.

Patch 7.3 Elemental Shaman changes raise Mastery cap, buff Earthquake As PTR testing for Patch 7.3 continues, focus has turned to a few class changes.
