MMO-Champion - New Warchief Revealed, Patch 5.4 Hotfixes
New Warchief Revealed
Spoilers ahead! Congratulations to Availed of US-Anvilmar for being the first to defeat Garrosh on 10 player normal difficulty!









Vale of Eternal Blossoms - Garrosh Defeat Cutscene
After Garrosh's defeat, there is an extra cutscene in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms.



Patch 5.4 - Visions of Time: Courting Destiny
Patch 5.4 adds a quest line on the Timeless Isle that involves working for Kairoz of the Keepers of Time. He is on the Timeless Isle because the Bronze Dragonflight is not as powerful as it once was, only being able to catch furtive glimpses through time. He has created an hourglass that will allow for a window into the timeways, but you must collect 50 x Epoch Stones to make it usable.

After collecting the stones, you embark on a series of weekly quests to use the Vision of Time in different locations to calibrate the Vision of Time. Kairoz eventually will reveal that there is a traitor among the Bronze Dragonflight.

As the hourglass grows more powerful, he will send you to the Temple of the White Tiger to see a glimpse of Garrosh and Anduin, which is the scene you see below.

    I guess the Alliance walking away is supposed to make the Alliance feel good. Talk about pathetic story telling on Blizzard's part.

    "Hey, you're completely beaten down, but we'll just leave because you helped fight against Garrosh."

    Give me a break. Blizzard officially spit in the face of half it's play base right there. Not only that, but they went with the most obvious choice for a replacement, thereby giving no one a decent story ending.

    She seems like she is getting restless, I can see her overtaking the King soon

    I'm excited to see how they unfold Vol'jin and how Thrall will involve himself back in to the horde scene. Troll Master Race!

    I highly doubt Alliance players make up half of the playerbase but whatever...

    Would you rather have had the Blood Elf?

    Alright, well this was disappointing to me.... That is ALL we saw of Jaina? After she tried to DESTROY THE WHOLE ORGRIMMAR, all she did was sit back and watch Varian congratulate the Horde for doing the thing they should have done, and give them another chance to strike first before retaliating and "ending them"... She was RIDICULOUSLY mad, she took the staff from Lei Shen to USE it against Garrosh, she did none of these things.

    This is all very... I don't know.. It feels out of place.

    Blizzard prolly made the Alliance walk away from the beaten Horde to allow the Alliance to come back and beat the Horde again because of Sylvanas. With Garrosh done, I wouldn't doubt the Forsaken Queen with an army of Valk'yrs to be the next baddie.

    If I wasnt enjoying FF ARR so much, I would come back to wow and switch to Horde. I've always loved Vol'jin, this is awesome news.

    Yeah!!! Blizzard, why don't you give Orgrimmar to the Alliance and have to re-do all the zones on Durotar just so the people who play Alliance like this guy can feel some kind of sense of pride?

    Really, give it a rest with your pride in whatever faction. It's a video game, and Blizzard won't make a TON of work just to make you feel like a the Alliance won a war.

    And Blizzard, you make character models look as good as Thrall/Varian/Vol'jin, I'll resubscribe.

    Ehhh that was pretty lackluster, and quite frankly I thought Varian acted like a bitch.

    Apophasis just downed Garrosh horde side and I must say I like the horde version better I kind of respect Vol'jin a little now.

    Next Alliance target is Sylvanas

It's just gotta be, otherwise; they'll need to change the name to World of Peacecraft and that won't be any fun.
    Nah it wont be somethign really heavy couple of skirmishes here and there but both faction need to ally for the greater good of azeroth!

    Who - It's important to remember that we're simply counting the number of characters seen for each category. This does not mean the number of players, nor the number of actively played characters. We can't efficiently get activity data yet, so some characters may not have been played for a long time.

    Where - We use the Battle.net API to get character and guild information. Every visitor to this site fetches some data that we need and sends it to our servers. In compliance with Blizzard's Third-Party API Usage Policy, you can view the code that accesses the API by loading this JavaScript file and running it through a beautifier.

    Not everyone visits the site either.

    So you may be correct but it's more likely it's insufficient data.

    Welp, no real surprises there. Glad it didn't turn out to be awful and be Thrall.
