Account-wide Argus unlocks come with latest WoW hotfixes

Everyone rejoice for alt character playability, for today’s hotfixes bring with them account-wide unlocks for Antorus Wastes and Invasion Points. It looks like WoW wasn’t quite done with hotfixes today — a few of these hotfixes are in addition to the ones that went live with maintenance.

As long as you’ve already completed the Argus storylines on one character, you’ll be able to access the content on your alts. Antorus Wastes World Quests and treasures open up account-wide as soon as you finish “The Assault Begins” chapter, and access to Invasion Points and Greater Invasion Points open with completion of “Dark Awakenings” chapter. This is a godsend for anyone who just wants to play alts casually in Argus or do the emissaries without having to go through all 5 chapters for several hours on each character before you can get started.

The Netherlight Crucible also received a small buff. Dark Sorrows has been buffed by 40% to bring it more in line with the other Netherlight Crucible traits. This is one of the Void options that you can choose for Tier 2 on your relics.

Check out the full hotfix notes below.
