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.

    Wonderful to see Vol'jin taken from a loreless wonder to the Warchief, they've done a great job of writing him since Cataclysm. I always wanted to see him shine, brings a tear to me old eye it does. A Warchief I'm proud to serve. Even Sylvanas gave him a little nod of respect haha.

    Also, the post-cinematic in Vale does a beautiful job of bookending the whole expansion. And we finally know... what is worth fighting for

    Yeah. Metzan is pretty terrible at personalities. I also don´t get the new anger Thrall has towards the alliance. It was like they decided that becase Jaina has gone hardcore, than now Thrall must also?

    But for sure, Jaina is being set up to be the next Garrosh.

    And that one other important dragon guy... The word "wing" was somewhere in his name... Oh, who was that?

    You know what, forget it. Probably not that important anyways. Any dragon can get an entire expansion about them nowadays, right?

    So, it's confirmed Jaina will turn evil in the next expansion. Yay, let's kill off another alliance hero, while scumbag Garrosh is left alive until further notice.

    The only anger Thrall really showed was at the thought of Garrosh being chained up by the Alliance, and if you think of Thrall's long history, you might realize that the imprisonment of orcs by the Alliance might just be a sore point for him.

    Seriously, all the "Jaina's the new Garrosh" people really missed the mark that you clearly didn't.

    Wow, Jaina's a bitch.

    Varian should have taken Jaina's advice. I don't want to be a part of either faction now. I wonder if the Argent Dawn, Cenarion Circle, Earthen Ring, Southsea Buccaneers, Scourge, etc are hiring?

    Lol I like how Voljin was basically like, "I CALL WARCHIEF!" and Thrall's like "Well, he called it."

    Also, I hope Garrosh has a good attorney.

    Can Vol'jin afford to wear a pair of pants now?

    Vol'jin immediately said "You're the Warchief, love you BFF." and Thrall was like "No. Nooooooo. Old Gods, no. You're Warchief now. Later, bitches."

    How did that panda guy survive Garrosh chaining him around the neck and pulling him through the air to be impaled on his axe? That's just laughable and as always Blizzard are way too afraid to kill off anyone.

    So all that talk of a "unexpected" warchief was bs then

    Unexpected heh ...

    Vol'jin was pretty much the first choice in most people's minds.

    Lor'themar would be unexpected. Sylvanas would be very unexpected. Goblin leader would be WTF.

    Vol'jin? People saw coming a mile away. Unexpected my ass.

    Can we hire real voice actors now along with a decent director and script writers who aren't over paid fan fiction writers?

    varian had the perfect chance to tell the guards to take jaina away, that would've been so much cooler lol

    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.
    Would have been way more fun to end this in a bloodbath with a some leaders killed while they could, then brought back War in World of Warcraft in next expansion.

    Story so far on both sides (with very few exceptions) : "Roar~ we're enemiiiies, we hate youuuu, but now is tea time, we'll kill you tomorrow."
