We're back with another Classic Spotlight, where we take a deeper look at events that happened during WoW Vanilla to remember them and get hyped up for the upcoming WoW Classic servers!

With the upcoming Call of the Scarab event and the recent newfound relevancy of Silithus, we have decided to look at two classic instances:
Exorsus' kill videos have always been amazingly edited and Argus is no different. The video starts off with an amazing introduction that has a fly-through of many bosses and feels very cinematic. The kill video consists of multiple PoVs and is worth a watch!
More updates are also on the way for the PTR legendary token Purified Titan Essence. A future PTR build will increase the number of Wakening Essence needed to purchase one Purified Titan Essence. However, you'll earn Wakening Essence at a faster rate in 7.3.5.
