Draenei Easter Eggs on Argus - Thu, 28 Sep 2017 21:16:20 -0500 Argus is a planet steeped in Draenei lore, and outside of the quest series, there are little details which enrich the history of the Draenei, both serious and silly.
In this post we'll examine several of our favorite easter eggs like zone details and flavor NPCs--let us know if the comments if any other details stand out!
Hakmud of Argus
Hakmud of Argus is a familiar face on the Reins of the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth, the Alliance three-seater mount.
Now, leading up to BlizzCon 2017, Blizzard has released a special video recapping the past year from World of Warcraft. Most significantly, but unsurprisingly, Ion Hazzikostas confirmed we'll hear details about what's next for Warcraft at BlizzCon (around 4:42).
How the Pantheon Trinkets from Antorus Work - Thu, 28 Sep 2017 00:47:18 -0500 The six Pantheon-themed trinkets from Antorus, the Burning Throne have been causing quite a stir since they were datamined in Patch 7.3.2--in addition to having interesting procs, they have another powerful benefit only active when "empowered by the Pantheon."
With the trinkets finally up for testing on the PTR, Warrior theorycrafter and Wowhead guide author Archimtiros ran some testing to determine exactly how these trinkets worked.
Special Mythic Phase on Final Antorus Boss - Wed, 27 Sep 2017 21:03:36 -0500 Build 25135 has added more abilities to Antorus encounters, including details pointing to a special Mythic-only phase on the final boss. We haven't had a Mythic-only phase since Gul'dan and the exact abilities are usually obscured in the journal to be a surprise for progression guilds.
In the Encounter Journal below, there are now different Stage 3 entries for Mythic vs Normal / Heroic / Raid Finder, with the Mythic version sounding more ominous and open-ended.
Eonar's Verdant Embrace Your healing effects have a chance to grow an Emerald Blossom nearby, which heals a random injured ally for 0 every 2 sec. Lasts 12 sec.14 sec. Eonar's Verdant Embrace When empowered by the Pantheon, your next 6 direct healing spells grant the target a shield that prevents 0 damage for 30 sec.
