This week, together with the release of Antorus (check out or guides by FatBossTV if you need help progressing!), we have Highmaul and Dragon Soul! As well as some specific Blizzard news, like Ghostcrawler leaving and the massive success of WoW's Day One sales! Let's get started then :
Method Has Launched Raid History World First Timeline - Wed, 29 Nov 2017 20:00:08 -0600 Method has launched the Raid History World First Timeline! Here you'll find a list of all the world first kills and coverage in one place, going back to Classic WoW. It's a fun and informative trip down memory lane, especially if you were pushing progression raiding in early WoW.
Also keep an eye out for Method's Mythic Antorus Coverage, which will start next week!
We've been working on this project for a long time and now, with the final raid of Legion here, it's time to reveal it.
Changed Azeroth Skybox After Clearing Antorus - Wed, 29 Nov 2017 17:00:52 -0600 Players who have cleared Antorus have a changed skybox, similar to what occured after the end of Tomb of Sargeras. This is in addition to the changed zone in Azeroth (spoilers).
Spoilers and screenshots in post.
For players that have defeated Argus the Unmaker, the planet Argus is no longer visible in the sky. It's been fun with all the dramatic planet screenshots, but now that time is over!
Instead you'll find a faint red glow in the sky, all that is left.
Glory of the Argus Raider Completed on Day 1 by the Achievements Discord! - Wed, 29 Nov 2017 13:10:46 -0600 In less than 24 hours since the raid opening, Glory of the Argus Raider has been completed at least twice by the Achievements Discord! The achievement rewards Antoran Gloomhound and it was completed at least once by an US-Horde group and once by an EU-Horde group. The US-Horde group was was lead by Dark and it took them about 7 hours to get the glory achievement. While the EU-Horde group was lead by Nightswifty and it took them about 5 hours to get the glory achievement.
Talent Calculator Now Supports Top Heroic Antorus Builds and Gear - Wed, 29 Nov 2017 10:23:31 -0600 The Talent Calculator is one of the core features of Wowhead and it's now updated for Antorus! Wowhead's Talent Calculator now displays the top talent builds, legendaries, and trinkets used for each Antorus and Tomb of Sargeras boss. You'll also see the percentage breakdown for alternate options so you can determine how popular every option is.
As more people down heroic bosses, we expect to see the talent breakdown shift over time. Top Mythic builds will be supported separately next week.
Antorus, the Burning Throne opens on November 28th (NA) and November 29th (EU). Here is our overview of Antorus, the Burning Throne, with links to strategy guides, information on rewards, when each boss is available, and more! Don't forget, Mythic+ Dungeon and Class Hall Chests will scale up to level 15 once Mythic Tomb (December 5th) opens.
Coming back to WoW after a break and just want the basics?
At the end of the heroic Argus kill video from <Easy>, you can see the loot pop-up for Blood of the Unmaker. This starts the quest Blood of a Titan which rewards Kirin Tor Summoning Crystal. Everyone in the raid gets this item.
Legendary Upgrade Clarifications in Antorus - Tue, 28 Nov 2017 20:59:48 -0600 Legendaries can be upgraded to ilvl 1000 with the opening of Antorus, the Burning Throne. 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. This post covers how the breadcrumb quest works, where the legendary trinket is from, the main ways to get Wakening Essence, and earning Wakening Essence before picking up the quest.
Illidan has left messages for Tyrande and Malfurion--something highly anticipated as many players wondered why the three iconic Night Elves never interacted in Legion before. He's transmitted these messages via the Alor'idal Crystal.
If you're curious why Illidan has left messages, check out the Argus the Unmaker Cinematic (spoilers).
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.
Update: The first Aman'Thul's Vision has appeared to have dropped off Argus the Unmaker. The Holy Paladin Bernut appears to have been lucky enough to be awarded both trinkets off the Argus kill!
Sargeras threw his sword into Silithus while being imprisoned by Illidan and the Titans. This sword is massive - it takes several minutes in-game to fly from the base to the top, and can be seen as far away as Thunder Bluff. It is visible once you have defeated Argus the Unmaker.
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.
New Antorus Cinematic - Rise of Argus - Tue, 28 Nov 2017 10:11:28 -0600 A new raid has new cinematics and Antorus is no exception. While we are still waiting for the final raid cinematic, which will unlock when players defeat the final boss, here is a short cinematic that will play before you fight Argus the Unmaker, involving Magni and the Titans.
Note: this is not the final cinematic.
The launch of a new raid is always a busy news day, so check out all of our Antorus opening day news if you missed it:
Turalyon on the Vindicaar offers The Burning Throne. This triggers a short in-game cinematic showing the Vindicaar blasting open the entrance to Antorus. To complete this quest, you must take the Vindicaar to Antoran Wastes.
Get the Glory of the Argus Raider with Achievements Discord - Mon, 27 Nov 2017 11:06:30 -0600 With Antorus, the Burning Throne opening this week, players can begin work on Glory of the Argus Raider. This achievement requires players to complete each raid fight in unconventional ways, and rewards the Antoran Gloomhound mount.

For the very first article, since we had a taste of classic raiding with the WoW's 13th Anniversary, we decided to spotlight one of the very first raids in the history of WoW: Onyxia's Lair!
Serving as most player's first raiding experience in Vanilla, Onyxia's Lair is located in the swamps of Dustwallow Marsh. Gaining entrance to her lair, though, was no simple task:
