All level 90 players in a raid can work on the legendary questline at the same time. it's been purposely designed to cut down on loot drama and the feeling that one person in your raid ends up overpowered.
This legendary series spans the expansion, with more elaborate rewards each tier.
The reward for
Chapter I: Trial of the Black Prince
, added in 5.0, is a
+500 stat gem
that can be placed into a special

Hellscream is using Pandaria's secrets to wage war against the world - and even his own people. Is this really what the last pandaren emperor had in mind when he cloaked the continent in mists? And why did the mists suddenly disappear? I must have answers! In my travels, I met an old scholar, an expert on the last emperor. Please, seek out Seer Hao Pham Roo. Last we spoke, he was planning to retrace the emperor's steps by scaling Mount Neverest... but he was far too old to attempt such a climb.
Path of the Last Emperor
: Attach the climbing rope to each Rope Anchor along the path to help Seer Hao Pham Roo reach Seeker's Point.

Patch 5.2: Isle of Thunder Content Guide
2013/03/08 at 11:40 AM
Isle of Thunder
is a new zone in 5.2 that is the location of a server-wide War Effort, new factions, and daily quests. However, there's a lot of vanity-related content as well, for players that dislike dailies.
This guide aims to cover the basics of completing your new dailies, but also to highlight all the other things you can do on the island. Since you access more content as you progress through the War Effort, we've also pointed out what things you can do now, and what things you'll have to wait a few weeks on.
Unlike factions tied to MoP's launch, the factions on the
Isle of Thunder
are not tied to getting raid-quality gear or unlocking dailies for other factions. While you can complete twelve dailies a day, it's possible to have fun on
Isle of Thunder
without doing any dailies and simply enjoying the other content, such as killing rare spawns, getting
for completing achievements, and farming troll transmog gear.
