We take a nostalgic look back at one of the best N64 games to ever be made, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
Throwback Thursday - The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
Comparisons to TF2 and more are welcome, but we're thinking elsewhere for Blizzard's new IP

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Landfall Patch 5.1 Now Live

Blizzard has revealed that the next chapter in their latest expansion for World of Warcraft has gone live, giving players more content to complete in their quest for glory. Those still enjoying the Mists of Pandaria expansion will find a new Horde vs Alliance storyline to complete that includes a new set of dailies, more Pandaren lore and of course bloodshed between the two factions.

The update also includes two new factions, Operation: Shieldwall for Alliance and Dominance Offensive for Horde, with both offering new rewards. Other additions include new scenarios, Pet Battle system upgrades, Brawler's Guild, legendary quest line continued and changes to raids.
  • The Pandaren Campaign begins!
  • The conflict between the Horde and the Alliance has ignited a new series of daily quests along the shore of the Krasarang Wilds.
  • Players can visit their faction strongholds in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms to begin the quest to summon their war fleets to the continent of Pandaria.
  • Players will both valiantly defend their faction’s outpost and assault the opposing faction's headquarters.
  • Two new Reputations have been added: Alliance players can earn reputation with Operation: Shieldwall, while Horde players will curry favor with the Dominance Offensive.
  • Players can follow the story of the Pandaren Campaign through a series of special quests tied to their reputation with the landing forces. Heroes assisting with the war effort will join key characters and faction leaders as the growing conflagration spreads across Pandaria... as well as other locations around Azeroth.

    Another cool thing is that you don't need to be in a group to enter the older raids and they've changed some of the raid bosses so they can be solo'd.

    Reactivated to check it out this evening. Turns out the patch that dropped last night broke the f*****g quest to get you started in Pandaria, so I'm stuck on the damned airship shooting the s*** with people I haven't spoken to in years. So far, this is not an auspicious start :(

    Did one of the new scenarios last night as alliance, the one where you build the traps and lure the horde out of the temple to own them. Was pretty epic.

    Holy priest buffs seem to be pretty win too, ranked 5th on World of Logs for heroic stoneguard last night.

    The only scenario I've done so far was Fall of Theramore and that was ass. I didn't bother with any more because I figured they'd be of similar quality. I should prolly give them a go even if it's only a one off thing.

    You should try the others Rev, Fall of Theramore is probably the worst, theres some pretty fun ones.

    Yeah I'm not sure actually, I meant to check that a couple of weeks ago when I saw it mentioned in a thread, I'll check next time I'm on cos I'm curious as well. If I had to take a wild guess I'd probably put it around 400, thought maybe I could find it on armory, but I'll have to check next time I log in.

    heh how was there even that much damage going out to heal, even on our worst wipefest nights on that fight, and 2 healing it, we do around 50-70k hps each
    you've got 3 healers at 87, 63 and 56k, that's insane damage - are they just standing in all the colbalt mines during the wrong petrify or something

    We didn't even have cobalt, so yeah, dunno, it did feel like there was way more damage going out than we normally have to deal with on 25 though (proportionally speaking). We had two tanks who don't normally tank it though, and we normally do 25 instead of 10, so I guess it was a bit rough :)

    I did a bit of a search a few days ago and ran into some guy claiming to have 960 days played. It wasnt backed up with any screen shots but if that true its pretty nuts.

    Seems I overestimated, got 300 days played accross all my toons. Got my priest with 127 days, mage with 145 days, dk with 25 days, and then the odd day here and there on lowbie alts and bank alts and stuff.

    Maybe I'm just really efficient and use my time well!

    I dunno, I'm suprised too that its so low tbh. My mage was attached to a different bnet account for a couple of years, then I swapped it back to mine, dunno if that screws up the time played at all.
