The titans also used the last of Argus' power to imprison forever.

She believed that the Legion was hiding it from prying eyes, and that once they reached it, it would be key in finally destroying the Burning Legion. Xe'ra believed that this vision of the emerald star was the reason Eradication was sent to assassinate both Turalyon and Alleria. Turalyon would later claim to have seen the emerald star after being Lightforged by Xe'ra, saying their war with the Legion would eventually reveal it to them, and that they needed to be patient.
During the War in Outland, many of Argus' demonic forces had moved to Outland, leaving it undefended enough for Turalyon and Alleria to venture into it to discover the truth about the emerald star.
