PTR Patch 5.1: Vol’jin and the Horde Dominance Offensive in Pandaria
So far I have encountered very interesting content for level 90 players who decide to embark into this Patch 5.1 adventure.
This is not content you can just do in one go. There are daily quests involved. Once Patch 5.1 hits live servers, the first quest is triggered onscreen merely by entering The Shrine of the Two Moons (Horde), or the Shrine of Seven Stars (Alliance).
Scout Rokla can be found in Krasarang Wilds at coordinates (8.7,64.4) at the westernmost isle. The map has been updated to show Dominance Point (Horde) and Lion’s Landing (Alliance).
Speak with Scout Rokla at the Horde Landing Site in Krasarang Wilds.
It has been two months since the parting of the mists. Horde scouts, seeking a suitable landing site for the fleet, have engaged Alliance forces on a small island off the coast of Krasarang Wilds.
Meet with Scout Rokla and help secure the landing site.
Scout Rokla: You are just in time. The Warchief is about to land. Once this site passes his inspection, the fleet will follow.
(You are now friendly with the Dominance Offensive)
Garrosh Hellscream: Here! Stop the boats here.
This island will make a perfect coastal stronghold. Rokla! When the peons arrive, clear these trees and begin construction of the docks.
Champion, you have been here for many weeks, and know this land well. Come with me.
The Kor’kron elite guard, goblins and Forsaken scouts can be found holding positions at the shore of the westernmost isle of Krasarang Wilds. Humans and Night Elf sentinels have them cornered on the beach.
The arrival of Warchief Garrosh Hellscream and his champion (YOU) shift the balance of the ambush. The player must kill 25 Alliance mobs. Garrosh kills them really quick. I recommend to tag 1-2 mobs at a time, Garrosh is a bit slow on assisting. Sometimes stands still doing nothing unless the mob is a couple of feet close.
Warchief Garrosh: Come, (class)! I want to inspect this island and ensure that my landing team has done their job.
Let us crush this pitiful display and claim this land for the Horde!
Accompany Garrosh Hellscream to find Blood Guard Gro’tash, Grizzle Gearslip, and slay 25 Alliance.
- Alliance slain (25)
- Blood Guard Gro’tash found (10.4, 53.6 – north)
- Grizzle Gearslip found (15.7, 57.7 – northeast corner by the beach)
Find Blood Guard Gro’tash
Blood Guard Gro’tash: More elves to slaughter!
Garrosh Hellscream: A pitiful skirmish! The Alliance fights without conviction. Hold this ground, Blood Guard. Here is where we will build our keep. Expect peons within the hour, and be ready to motivate them.
**Video available in 720HD / 1080HD**
Grizzle Gearslip: Heads up, boys. More tin-men comin’ our way! There’s oil here alright, and we’re gonna need it!
Garrosh Hellscream: Well done. Our presence here will not be denied!
(This fire will signal the full might of the Horde invasion fleet to land on this beach, beginning Garrosh’s campaign in Pandaria.)
Note: Click the Signal Fire.
(Domination Point Achievement Progress appears onscreen)
(Screen goes black. Cinematic begins)
After the cinematic, the player enters a new phased area on the north of the isle. Domination Point has been built. Random Daily quests appear.
After the Domination Point cinematic, Vol’jin confronts Garrosh and the questline from World of Warcraft: Vol’jin, Shadows of the Horde begins. The Dagger in the Dark is part of “The Horde is Family” achievement progress for the Dominance Offensive Achievement.
After Vol’jin departs to his new mission, Garrosh summons a wyvern mount onscreen and flies away toward the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. A new core quest opens up:
- Voice of the Gods
- Blood for Blood
- The Korune
- Rise of the Blood Elves
- Secrets of the Past
- The Divine Bell
- The Darnassus Operation
- The Purge of Dalaran
- Breath of Darkest Shadow
The daily quests become available. Like in the Dread Wastes, the daily quests send players to sub-zones throughout the coast of Krasarang Wilds. Note: The links below open in a separate page, but this page stays static. Close the opening page after finishing, and return to this page to continue browsing through the Patch 5.1 content.
These quests can only be purchased from the Domination Point Collector of Commissions Ongrom Black Tooth.
- Beastmaster’s Hunt: The Crab
- Beastmaster’s Hunt: The Crane
- Beastmaster’s Hunt: The Tiger
There are two Horde vs Alliance Scenarios.
