Dagger in the Dark
Vol'jin is ordered by the Horde to investigate the origins of the Saurok. He's not too happy to discover that the Mogu created them from dark magic, but Garrosh's loyal guards are thrilled by this discovery--they want to create an army of corrupted warriors, similar to the Mogu.

New Scenario: Assault on Zan'vess, Blizzard Analyzes LFR
2012/11/02 at 11:44 AM
Today's news covers two aspects of WoW that are designed to be easily accessible for many players: Scenarios and LFR. We have a preview of a new scenario on the PTR, as well as a ton of blue posts discussing players' perceptions behind LFR.
Assault on Zan'vess
Recently, a new scenario was open for testing on the 5.1 PTR,
Assault on Zan'vess
. For everyone complaining that scenarios feel a bit easy, this one should be a welcome challenge. The mobs hit hard, pulling additional groups can be lethal, and coordination is actually required on bosses.
This scenario appears to change based on your faction, as Alliance players start off on their gunship and kill a Horde commander later on.
Stage 1: Join the Assault
Players land on top of their faction's gunship, and are told to join in the assault by getting on one of the gyrocopters.
Stage 2: Defenses of Zan'vess
You're asked to fly over Zan'vess and destroy the sonic shield, which is maintained by several generators around the island. As your character makes loops around the island, you can bomb the control towers as well as shielding yourself from enemy fire. You'll also n

Scenario Previews: Arena of Annihilation and Greenstone Village
2012/07/25 at 12:11 PM
Two more scenarios were added in beta in this recent patch:
Arena of Annihilation
. We've got writeups and screenshots of them, as well as videos by Lore! Sceanarios also now have quests implemented, as well as reward satchels that yield ilvl 463 blues:

The village has been invaded by Cursed Jade Elementals and Sassy Seedlings. The group will need to clear the town and speak to the frightened NPCs.

Stage 3: Recover Burgled Barrels[/
Scenario Previews: Crypt of Forgotten Kings and Unga Ingoo
2012/07/07 at 9:41 AM
Lore and I have teamed up again to bring you previews of the latest scenarios on beta! We'll be looking at two very different scenarios today:
Crypt of Forgotten Kings
, which takes place in a corrupted tomb with the Sha, and
, which takes place on the beach with drunken Hozen.
They're both fairly short, and like the
, require you to be level 90 but have no spec/group requirements. You can learn more about scenarios from NPCs at your level 90 faction hubs, or queue from them via the Dungeon Finder.
Rescue Jungle Brew from the clutches of the evil hozen pirates of Unga Ingoo.
Escort Brewmaster Bo to the tropical brewing pot.
Players run around the island collecting brew. Instead of looting brew bottles, it instead shows up as a stacking buff, with a chance to "spill" over 30, which could lower the buff. Meanwhile, the hozen are arriving in ships and running up the shore to atta
Scenario Previews: A Brewing Storm and Brewmoon Festival
2012/06/08 at 5:13 PM
Lore and Perculia have teamed up to give an in-depth preview of the scenarios available for testing. This first batch of scenarios centers around the Brewmasters--a group of Pandaren who take their craft very seriously and end up in the strangest predicaments on their quests for the perfect ingredients.
Currently, you must be level 90 with a minimum ilvl of 425 to queue for scenarios. You can queue up for them using the dungeon finder, either for random or specific ones.
Summary of A Brewing Storm
Up on Thunderpaw Peak, you have to help Blanche Boomer finish making her famous brew. It can only be completed in the rain, which unfortunately is the perfect weather for enraged Saurok, a race of ancient lizards created by the Mogu solely for the purpose of fighting. This scenario is very fast, with three short phases and a NPC that helps tank and heal.
You'll start the encounter by extinguishing kegs on fire and killing waves of Saurok as Blanche completes the brewing process over the course of several minutes. Blanche helps you out b
Jaina and Theramore Scenario Spoilers, New Warlock Pet Sounds and Emotes
2012/05/31 at 9:10 PM
included a lot of sound files for the Theramore scenario that's been talked about since BlizzCon. So if you want to hear Jaina in all her fury, look no further! Naturally,
this post contains a lot of spoilers
, so tread lightly and don't watch them if you don't want to be spoiled.
The patch also included completely new voice overs for all of the Warlock's pets. They're really ridiculous--including tons of jokes and overacting--and worth listening to. These pets and their emotes will all come from
talent that Warlock's will get in Mists of Pandaria.
