Argus is in the sky for everyone, no matter if you killed Kil'Jaeden or not, now.

I'm curious how many zones can see it. I know all Legion zones can and it seems like some major cities. Would be better if we could see it in every zone in Azeroth.

It is every zone, with the exception of Draenor and Outland (since that's another planet/dimension). :)

I posted these on another thread before, but here's a few screenshots I took. Uldum, Winterspring, Eversong, Ghostlands:

Oh.... well then. I didn't see it in SMC earlier so I wasn't sure. Kudos to Blizzard for that detail.

I personally think this is way cool allowing those of us who are no where near being a raider of any type to be able to see this when it was only those at first who killed him got to see.

Ooh, the Blood Elf/Draenei ones may actually not show up until 7.3 then, I assumed they would have got the Argus skybox too with this change of letting everyone see it, but at the time of those screenshots I had been on the PTR since they had accidentally forgotten those zones initially (since technically they are on the Outland 'map' in game). Rest assured it'll show up there eventually though! :) And aside from those technicalities it should be visible everywhere else currently!

I'm glad that everybody's getting it now but I feel like holding off for another week or two would have been better—KJ opened up in LFR this week and it would have been nice for the LFR people to experience the "oh whoa hold up" moment that the rest of us did when it first happened to us.

I mean granted, I think a lot of people who run LFR had already heard about it before now and I suppose the excitement of it had pretty much worn off if you didn't kill him before the news got around... but y'know, lol

I got to thinking. Wouldn't something like that mess with tides and weather and what not?

It would do terrible things to the tide and weather, like holy cataclysm but with less thrall, batman.

I don't think it's close enough to Azeroth to cause any real negative effect. We're more or less seeing it through a portal rather.

It isn't actually in Azeroth's orbit. Illidan didn't teleport Argus to Azeroth, he opened a rift. A very large rift, but a rift nonetheless. It is possible that the rift may prevent the gravity of the two worlds from interacting. Further, since WoW is a magical setting, RL rules don't always apply.
