Agreed, I was looking forward to the space map.

Unless Argi is a talbuk too, in which case they also share the face tentacles.

Apparently the PC version of Destiny 2 is going to be a large part of Blizzard's presence at Gamescom. This just keeps getting weirder.

Now that I think about it, I wonder if maybe the WoW announcement fansites are being told they can't miss is some sort of cross-promotional event with Destiny 2?

If so that'll backfire horribly.

Yea there's no way that'll go well. I really doubt there's a big overlap between WoW players and people who'd play Destiny.

Probably for the most realistic reason: convenience. When people are checking their world quest daily it will be easier to access instead of zooming out all the way to the space map.

I think we can safely say they're not titan-forged, though, since the Pantheon seemingly didn't know about Argus.

My honest guess is they just evolved naturally like trolls.
The draenei custom of Jed'hin also seems kind of similar to how stags fight. Though I know that's not confirmed if Talbuk's do it, it seems like they would due to how similar to stags they are.

Kind of wish they just spelled it out in-game while we have the opportunity.

I don't doubt people would rage, but considering they're pushing Destiny 2 as the first non-Blizzard game to be on battle.net, coupled with Bungie tweeting about how excited they are for Blizzard to showcase Destiny 2 at Gamescom, I think it could happen. Blizzard has made similarly strange business decisions in the past.

Actually, there is one.

I heard that quite a lot of people converted Wow Tokens to B-Net Balance to buy Destiny 2. (Aka buying it with WoW Gold.)

Well after a little research, it seems that the Interceptor is a vehicule in Destiny, and guess what is the name of one of the mount, the Orgrimmar Interceptor

CASE CLOSED?

Maybe Stormwind Skychaster is based off Dawnchaster then.

Well, considering a lot of people await an expansion reveal at gamescom, if they don't announce it it would be fine I guess, but if it is replaced by destiny 2 , it can call a negative feeling for the people expecting an expansion... Not sur if it is a smart move tbh

I can see them showing how Destiny 2 will work via Battle.net, what I cant see is them inviting the fansite people there for that. That doesn't make sense. Really there is no reason to expect an expansion reveal so if thats what people are expecting theres a very good chance, IMO, they will be disappointed.
It almost seems we are starting to grasp at straws here and just making things up based on randomness

Yeah, I don't mind having a shortcut., but it wouldn't hurt to also include Argus in the space/worlds map.

That would be redundant.

Blizzard seems to be going to great effort to not let anyone forget or somehow not notice that Argus is there. To the point of filling half the skybox with a giant deathstar thing and now with a billboard ad on the map saying "Next exit!"

I wasn't around for most of the trash expansion, did people just not go to whatever could be called the argus equivalent? Or was there just not one.

Regarding the map, while I also would have liked it on the space map, I think the reason it's on the Broken Isles map is because it's patch content while the planets on the space map are expansion content unto themselves.

It gained enough popularity that Blizzard has made it canon on Argus, where you can find a Jed'hin arena and spectral Jed'hin fighters and trainers in Mac'Aree.

I'm assuming their reasoning was that it's preferable to segregate each expansion's content in its own layer of the map as much as possible. I agree it's more than a touch out of place, but I could understand if that was part of their decision process.

Wait they made Jed'hin canon? Well damn now it might be time to revive the character who used to do professional Jed'hin on Argus then turned into one of those washed up sports players that constantly talks about the good ol days.

Include a short cut on the Eye of Dalaran on the Dalaran map. Put the real map on the space map.

That's not true. CRZ/Sharding has been complained about for a long time.

Does this prove that there won't be a GamesCom reveal?
