Any avid World of Warcraft player is wondering when is the new raid coming? If Blizzard sticks to their usual schedule, we’re looking at the Antorus raid opening around Nov. 14, 2017. This gives everyone a chance to see what is going on at BlizzCon first and get us hyped for what will come next. Of course, there’s a lot of speculation for the next expansion, but we’ll stick to the facts for now.
Antorus, the Burning Throne is in Antoran Wastes, and you’ll enter on the side entrance, close to the Felfire Amory. If you even step close to the main gate, it will annihilate you. There are a total of 11 bosses, making this raid quite lengthy and plenty exciting for end-game raiders. While we won’t know everything about this raid until it’s Live on servers, we do know some.
The first boss listed in the Dungeon Journal is Garothi Worldbreaker. We can tell that he is a war machine that is designed to destroy the Army of the Light with it’s well rounded arsenal.
It looks like up next will be the Felhounds of Sargeras, infused with fire and shadow, we will face Sargeras’ pets. These two pups F’harg and Shatug are bred to the will of their master and are ready to unleash their vicious disposition on the Army of the Light.
Next, we will face a trio of Demon Commanders known as the War Council. These Commander’s are some of Sargeras’ most trusted military tacticians. They will use the full might of the Legion’s army to carry out the Burning Legion’s missives.
Portal Keeper Hasabel is ready to tear holes through space calling upon her aides from the Great Dark Beyond.
When we see Eonar the Life-Binder it’s a bit confusing, but after reading the journal it makes sense. We are trying to protect Eonar’s soul from the dark grasp of the Legion.
Imonar the Soulhunter, tracks his prey across the cosmos, and we will face him next.
Up next we will face Kin’garoth, a war-machine master who has devised a super-weapon that he thinks will decimate us all.
We face a more familiar foe next, Varimathras, who failed to stop the Lich King. Varminathras was forced to pay for his failure by enduring torture from the Coven of Shivarra, whom we will face next.
The Coven of Shivarra is the most depraved of all of Sargeras’ followers as they enjoy twisting the minds of their opposed and deriving pleasure from the screams of their enemies.
As we glimpsed in the quests leading up to the release of the raid, we must face Aggramar. In the history of the Pantheon, Aggramar was warped into a titan of destruction by the hand of Sargeras himself. He now guards the core of Argus, that holds enough enough power to unmake the universe.
Last, but not least, we’re going to face Argus the Unmaker. Much like Azeroth, the planet Argus itself is a Titan. He has been bound and broken for eons, his soul tormented for eternity.
It was a bit disappointing to not have the opportunity to deal with Sargeras, but who knows what’s in store for the next expansion…
