Mechanics are boring. Story is what I care aboot.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

Bashiok

For US servers it will be unlocked today in the afternoon.

It's tied to relative timezones and giving each region the same amount of time with it. EU will unlock first.

Scenario is fairly simple - you're dropped at Theramore harbor with some sappers, work your way in a lightning strike through the city to shut down air then tank support before trying to free the (bastard) (son of a bitch) (traitor of a) blood elf that announces the attack was but a "distraction" from the main event which you get to see as an in-game cutscene.

And the sonnuvabitch sends you a Mini mana bomb as reminder. Destroyed it on the spot. /spit

Remember reading somewhere that the scnearios have extra bits and pieces you might miss if you just run through the main objective. True?

There's some flags that you can "cogwheel" click that give you a 15% dmg buff I think, I rushed through it with a pair of well geared guildies so didn't notice much.

I just ran the main thing :-/ haven't spotted anything. I'll give another whirl.

Jaina is in the tower with Kalec and Rohnin. She likes to say 'hi'.

With her staff.

To the face.

Interesting that Horde and Alliance get totally different Scenarios - before and after, basically.

Will be interesting to see if that drives any people to one side or the other more, since we are back to a "conflict" mode.

I don't understand this scenario malarkey. I'm in queue for 4 minutes so far with a guildie. Didn't choose roles, and our queue seems to be going nowhere fast.

Edit: AVERAGE WAIT TIME FORTY MINUTES?!?!

You dont choose roles as there are no roles.

no roles = no need to find specific roles for a viable group = why the fuck is there a 40 min wait time?

Good question. The queue is horrificaly long, something MUST be messed up.

Tried the Ally side, nothing fancy either. You punch the Horde invaders out of the harbor, get Jaina to the bomb and help her clean up the remaining Horde presence and grab the Focusing Iris.

Sadly, Mister Sonnuva Bloodelf was nowhere to be taken violent revenge upon.

So far... four scenarios bugs. Still won't complete the blasted thing. This is just annoying. She just keeps channeling the bomb and nothing happens.

Go slow. The doodad tend to react bad when things happen too fast. Typically don't jump start on the pack on the 6th step (protect Jaina). It tends to go bad at that point as people are edgy to get in a big fight.

Horde side, try to explode every tank one at a time. I had multiple bugs where we were stuck at 2/3 tanks destroyed.

6th time was the charm I guess. What a lovely, buggy thing. >.>

Also bugs a lot on Horde side if you destroy the demolishers too quickly (you don't get credit for one of them, and then you cannot progress and have to start over). Has happened 3 times so far.

I don't know, but people are saying pre-mades get in faster. Not sure if it's true, but might be worth trying. I was thinking about farming this on my less geared alts for JPs, but if queues are so long, I'll probably not bother.

It's a 3 person scenario on Alliance side, so a group of 3 gets instant queue.

Yeah, I wanted to run it a few times yesterday, so I just said in trade I was starting a group, and the first 2 got the invites - I was swamped with whispers every time.

Something odd must be up with 40 minute times for a no-role scenario needing 3 people - I could see lonegr queue times if too many signed up as a pair, but singning single doesn't help either.
