World of Warcraft Patch 5.3 Scenario Previews

Posted on May 2, 2013 AT 03:17pm

World of Warcraft‘s 5.3 patch will add four new scenarios to the game along with Heroic modes for each, just in case any of you were somehow running out of content to enjoy.

The patch adds new scenarios, each with a Heroic mode (requiring item level 480), and two Heroic modes for existing scenarios (Crypt of Forgotten Kings and A Brewing Storm). Completing these Heroic modes will award you with Valor Points and Raid-Finder quality gear, also completing the bonus objective will grant you more Valor. A preview of each new scenario can be found below.

Blood in the Snow

There is a clear and present danger to the dwarven capital that Varian Wrynn isn’t going to let slide due to dwarven infighting. It’s ultimately Moira and the Dark Irons—along with the aid of some Alliance heroes—who step up to the plate to defend their new home, teaching the Wildhammer and Bronzebeard clans a lesson in loyalty and the value of fighting together for a common cause. You’ll be asked to step forth to aid Moira in this story-driven Scenario.

Dark Heart of Pandaria

Something’s afoot in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. Garrosh has sent Goblin engineers to excavate a mysterious artifact. However, their efforts seem to have stirred up more than the crew can handle on their own. Your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to go into the Vale and do a little much needed clean-up. Things aren’t quite right in the Vale and it seems Garrosh is looking for more leverage in the battle with the Alliance.

Secrets of Ragefire

Concerned with the recent disappearance of his scouts, Vol’jin has recruited the Bilgewater Cartel’s elite Gob Squad unit to investigate. Having tracked the culprit to an abandoned section of Ragefire, you’ll assist the Gob Squad in their search and help put a stop to whoever is behind these abductions. Doing what Goblins do best, you can bet there will be plenty of explosive action. You know it’s serious business when they even call a pool pony into play!

Battle on the High Seas

The war between the Horde and Alliance isn’t confined to land. You’ll need to take to the High Seas in this Scenario and fend off enemy forces to prove your faction’s naval might isn’t to be trifled with. Once you’ve made sure the ship is safe, you’ll need to swing into action (watch out for rope burns) and make sure the enemy doesn’t have a chance to send another boarding party or take another shot. There’s more at stake than pride.
