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.

    This looks like a fair balance for each side.
    Horde gets a wise choice for Warchief, Alliance gets a tough speech and stern warning from their leader.
    I'm fine with this in either direction.

    I doubt they will make another Horde leader the baddy soon. If they make a faction leader a baddy, my vote is for Tyrande.

    Its the alliance. Of course my opinion stems from the fact that I am mainly horde, Im just surprised that Jainas friendship with thrall seems to be non existent. Yes someone from the sunreavers used dal to get the divine bell out of teldrassil and Garrosh had theramore destroyed but that doesnt explain why Jaina would throw away her relationship with a friend that had nothing to do with it.

    I think Jaina is pissed at Thrall because he pretty much allowed Garrosh to attack Theramore and Jaina. Basically, everything that Garrosh did is Thralls fault and Jaina is angry about it.

    There was that whole incident where her city got turned into a giant crater...and amazingly she was actually STILL wanting to be nuetral after that...the divine bell was just the straw that broke the camel's back.

    Also WTF Anvilmar got a world first? I knew Eze would have something to do with it. That guy is a complete doucher, but I guess when you raid hardcore for years on end and every other decent raider decides to quit this was bound to happen.

    Vol'jin is awesome and I'm glad he's the new Warchief. I really liked the build-up to this moment. It was well done.

    wow jaina's become a total c word

    i was going to say bitch but c word sounded better :/

    I feel like this whole scenario is a waste for possibly great storytelling. Instead we got something along the lines of mediocre.

    Like for both cinematics. Jaina vs Sylvanas perhaps :P

    But that is also the problem with it. ---- It is just .... 'fine'.

    It is a decent pick and a nice movie, but really shows no courage at all by Blizzard. I'm not so much against the move, just slightly disappointed they weren't more bold. Let Jaina go off the handle and kill half the room ..... let Thrall smash Garrosh to bits and then exile himself forcing a new warchief to take his place. Have Sylvanas use this opportunity to raise all of the dead in Orgrimar and take a huge offensive. In other words: where's the BOLD ACTION to set up the next expansion? ... ah well ..... for the Horde .....

    Yeah, I completely agree. I'm kind of irritated that she got to him like that and he believed her and stomped over to the horde. 'Oh, you were only assigning a new warchief? well this is awkward... -makes manly speech to recover-'

    Obvious joking aside, I liked both cinematics. Was pretty shocked that Thrall was about to just mace Garrosh's face like it were nothing.

    so jaina is the next end-game boss, amazing.

    I've gone from hating jaina to disliking her.
    I want blood in my raids! Not pandapeacelovers!
    Even if it's of my own (Well now former as i went alliance after seeing that cinimatic) faction's veins.
