World of Warcraft Mists of Pandaria Patch 5.1 Landfall Guide
Karasang Wilds PvP Hub
The Alliance have set up a new faction, Operation: Shieldwall, at Lion’s Landing while the Horde, not to be outdone, have set up their own new faction, Dominance Offensive, at Domination Point to the west. Players complete PvP objectives in the area to earn commissions which can be exchanged for a beefed up NPC guard presence at key locations or to engage in new PvP daily quests. The respective factions also have new rewards available as well for those who want to grind out the faction. Players can get started with a faction specific quest in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms.
Yes, this is Fight Club. Minus crazy-cakes Helena Bonham Carter (we think). At this underground club in Stormwind and Ogrimmar players battle well-known PvE bosses solo in a ring while other players watch. There is an announcer, a jeering crowd, temp buffs, reputation rewards, new achievements, and a controversial invitation-only mechanic that is required to get started.
No one walks into Brawler’s Guild, you see. You have to be invited and those invitations come in just a few forms. Initially, they will only be available in limited supply at the Black Market Auction Houses (though it will take up to 24 hours after the servers come back up before they appear.) Those that purchase them while they are available will then, when reaching a certain rank within the Club, be granted additional invites to send to friends. The invites may also be loot from select Alliance and Horde mobs, but which ones have not yet been revealed.
Why all the exclusivity? Primarily because Blizzard isn’t instancing or phasing the Club so they have to limit how many people can get in. Those that do will sit in the audience while waiting their turn to brawl. And those lucky few who get an invite will quickly learn that one of the rules of Brawler’s Guild is you must fight on your first night.
