Look to the skies

~*~*~*~*~ Potential spoilers ahead.~*~*~*~*~

EDIT: adding more pics of little things like this as I find them. See them at the bottom of the post. 

This latest reset has seen a few new things appear in game. For those who have not yet killed Kil’Jaeden on Normal or higher difficulty, the skies would have been empty for them. Until today. Today, Kil’Jaeden became available in LFR difficulty, and to coincide with that, Argus appear in the skies for everyone to see. And the world has responded.

Today when I logged in, I noticed the Doomsayers were back.

They are handing out their pamphlets again (though not sure if the achievement is still available). They seem a lot more smarmy than usual, too.

But then I noticed other things. On Krasus’ Landing there were clumps of NPCs hanging around Kirin’Tor guardians, demanding answers.

There were clumps of draenei huddled together…

Investigations were being held on the edge of the platform, and Kirin’Tor Guardians were on high alert patrolling the outskirts of the city.

I wandered into the main areas of the city, and there are draenei everywhere. (That dude walking around with the book- I wish Cinderstorm could do that!!)

The citizens of the city are afraid, and as a leader, they are coming to me for answers. Which right now, I don’t have.

We know we are headed to Argus soon… Very soon, judging by what’s happening in game right now. But other than that, I don’t really know what’s going on. And I LOVE it. It’s been really great not looking at PTR patch notes- for the most part I don’t know much at all about what’s going to happen when we get to Argus.

It’s fun speculating what will happen, knowing I’m probably completely wrong. One of the things that I found really interesting about the Draenei NPCs is some of the wording they have been using. One said to me “By the Light’s blessing, our path begins anew.” And it made me stop and think…

I was reminded of the scenario in the Exodar with Prophet Velen and Rakeesh and all that unfolded there, with us ultimately destroying Velen’s son. At the end, Velen announces he is done, and he is going home. Home, being Argus. And I just couldn’t help but wonder… did Velen know what Illidan was up to? Did he help Illidan?

It’s interesting times, for sure! For me, I love this part, where the whole world around me is responding to things that are happening in game. It really adds to the immersion. Their sense of doom and fear is driving me to keep fighting. We’ve all come too far to just roll over and let the Legion win. I can’t wait to see Argus!!

 

EDIT 1: So I just went to the Alliance bank in Dalaran and came across two goblins, Pixxy and Shnivel, emptying out their loot from the bank…

  2. I’m not sure what ‘it’ means there, Spanky – but both Argus in the sky and the Doomsayers are linked to is going to Argus, and some people won’t have seen the cutscene until now.

  3. I may borrow the ranty pants latter to write. Not happy about it at all. For the nice reason.

  4. Thank you for sharing, I have not been to Dalaran yet – that sounds very cool; how it’s all being affected by…recent events. Thanks a lot for the insight 🙂

    I too was very unhappy with the fact, that Argus is now visible without doing Kil’Jaeden, and stayed away from Azeroth until I had killed him, to make it make sense.

  5. Great post 🙂

    I hadn’t noticed those two goblins, Pixxy and Shnivel, emptying out their loot from the bank… xD (probably cause I mostly go to the Horde one ;-)) Too fun… I will check it out later!

    Argus looks sooooo beautiful though. Can’t wait to pay it a visit.
