With the start of a new raid, there is some confusion over how the legendary upgrades work, and Blizzard has answered a few questions today.

Argus Pantheon Trinkets Dropped by Push Personal Loot - Tue, 28 Nov 2017 11:50:07 -0600 Players have been wondering how the Pantheon Trinkets would be looted from Argus, the Unmaker. After completing a Normal Antorus, we have some data as to how these trinkets drop.

Summary and screenshots under the spoiler tag: In this cinematic, Illidan stays behind with the Titans to become the jailor of Sargeras. We learn at the very end of the cinematic that Argus' defeat had a terrible price---in imprisoning Sargeras, he plunges his sword into Silithus.
