Patch 5.3 Escalation – Storyline Transcript and Videos – World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

patch-5-3-escalation-horde-intro-1

The World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Patch 5.3 adds new content to the progressive Garrosh Hellscream storyline. The Landfall (Patch 5.1) confrontation between the Alliance and the Horde at the Krasarang Wilds’ shore is over, and the Thunder King has been defeated.

What’s next? Well, Patch 5.3: Escalation is the intermediate content prior to engaging Garrosh Hellscream as the final boss of Mists of Pandaria.

The Horde and the Alliance are preparing their path toward Orgrimmar through the Barrens and Durotar.

Note: Over the next weeks, I’ll be updating this page with the quests text, NPC dialogues, images and videos. This will serve as a lore repository for those who rushed through the quests without reading, or for those who unsubscribed to World of Warcraft months ago, and wish to know what’s new. Who knows — what you see in this archive might bring you back to World of Warcraft.


Patch 5.3 Intro – Horde version

When players approach Sunwalker Dezco and Taran Zhu at the Golden Terrace of the Shrine of Two Moons capital in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, we see a conversation between both characters concerning Garrosh and the actions of the Horde.

Taran Zhu: Tauren! What have your people done? You have dredged open a scar within our sacred Vale!

Sunwalker Dezco: Lord Zhu, please understand – the orc “Warchief” who ordered the deed no longer speaks for the whole of the Horde. Many voices are rising up against him.

Taran Zhu: Your politics are no concern of mine. Your Horde has disrespected the sanctity of this place. You are no longer welcome here – leave at once!

Sunwalker Dezco: Give us time, Lord Zhu. Give us the opportunity to bring Hellscream to justice.

Taran Zhu: Sunwalker, I respect your people. You have aided us in our campaign against the Sha, and the Thunder King. Otherwise, I would’ve already ordered the Shado-Pan to purge this entire shrine. But my patience is at an end. The Horde must leave.

Sunwalker Dezco: Please. Give us time to make this right.

Taran Zhu: Very well. You have until season’s end. No longer. We pandaren are no strangers to dealing with tyrants. The coming battle will try your souls. May the celestials guide your actions.

The Alliance version of Patch 5.3 Escalation is a bit shorter. Both factions share the same scenarios, the same first quest, and the same Battlefield: Barrens quests. Some quests are unique to the Alliance players as seen below.
