Patch 5.1 Dominance Offensive: Pride
Warchief Garrosh and the Blood Elves managed to experiment with Sha magic after defeating and capturing the leader of the Korune mogu. In this short questline, Chieftain Baine Bloodhoof asks you to confront Sha-Touched Grunts. Lor’themar Theron questions Garrosh’s lack of ability to control the sha magic.
Echoes of Thunder
General Nazgrim: Ah, (name), we meet again. I have heard some wondrous news.
High Chieftain Baine Bloodhoof of the tauren has arrived here on Pandaria.
He meets with Warchief Garrosh Hellscream and Regent Lord Lor’themar Theron now, at the Shrine of Two Moons in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms.
He sent me a strange request – to send him a loyal champion of the Horde, capable of combat … and discretion.
I can’t think of none better to send than you. Speak to Tak-Tak if you seek transport.
Find High Chieftain Baine Bloodhoof at the Shrine of Two Moons. Speak to Tak-Tak at Domination Point for transportation.
(Take me to the Shrine of Two Moons)
Tak-Tak: So how did your trip to the Valley of Emperors go, wikket?
It’s cold up there. And dangerous!
Too many mogu. Only our foolish mountain hozen cousins live up there.
They so ookin’ stupid!
I heard you found somethin’ … or someone. You caught one o’ those mogu, didn’t you?
Maybe nasty mogu tell you where to find that bell.
Tak-Tak also hear mogu using dark magic.
Hozen call it … ikk! You call it sha, but ikk is SO much better name!
Anyways, those crazy mogu using ikk juju.
Even foolish hozen know ikk is worse than anything. Don’t touch ikk!
You think ookin’ is nasty word? You ain’t ikkin’ know anything.
(Find Baine Bloodhoof at the Shrine of Two Moons: 1/1)
Note: Baine is found at the second floor by the capital portals – The Imperial Merchantile.
High Chieftain Baine Bloodhoof: Well met, (class). You were sent from Domination Point? Very well. We have much to discuss.
(You are now Revered with Dominance Offensive)
A Gathering Storm
Baine Bloodhoof: If General Nazgrim sent you, then I trust you are capable of discretion.
When I arrived here, I found Garrosh … experimenting … with some ancient power that he found in the mountains to the north.
He believes that this “sha” can strengthen our soldiers.
Unfortunately, so far the results have been quite the opposite.
Our troops are erupting into random violence. Go and interrogate them. If they threaten you, be prepared to defend yourself.
Confront 8 Sha-Touched Grunts.
Sha-Touched Grunt: I don’t know what came over me. Thank you for clearing my head.
Sha-Touched Grunt: W-what happened? I couldn’t control my own body.
Sha-Touched Grunt: I fought against the anger, but it overwhelmed me. You have my thanks.
Sha-Touched Grunt: Thank you for saving me from that nightmare. I wanted to rip everything apart!
Garrosh Hellscream: You bested my defenders? Finally, one who can control his hatred and violence! I need more men like you.
(Dominance Offensive Achivement Update: Pride)
Lor’themar Theron: Garrosh, you do truly believe the sha can be controlled? Have you seen what it’s done to our men?
Blademaster Ishi: Hold your tongue, blood elf! You dare question our Warchief’s judgment?
Garrosh Hellscream: Calm yourself, Ishi. The Lord Regent may speak his mind. The sha can be a powerful tool. The mogu may have once harnessed its power into the Divine Bell, and look at the glorious empire they built in its wake.
Lor’themar Theron: But their empire fell. Perhaps to the sha, perhaps to the pandaren, or perhaps … to their own pride.
Garrosh Hellscream: Did the Scourge beat all the courage from your people, blood elf? We are teh HORDE. Where there is power, we SEIZE it. My Horde has no place for the weak!
Lor’themar Theron: As you say … Warchief.
Garrosh Hellscream: Here on Pandaria, I see a land that the Horde deserves. We will take it for our own, and if anyone stands in our way, mogu or Alliance, we will raze them to the ground.
Baine Bloodhoof: An honorable meeting, (class). I have heard rumblings from my brothers here on Pandaria. Dark rumblings of dissent and worry.
I have come myself to support the Horde’s efforts, but also … to make sure that things don’t get too out of hand.
Subject: Watching the Warchief
What you been hearing? Baine Bloodhoof wrote to say that Garrosh is capturing mogu and using some sort of energy the Pandaren call “Sha.” There ain’t no power he won’t abuse.
Baine says he going to stay close to him. Garrosh probably don’t trust the tauren chieftain. But he trust you. Keep Baine out of trouble for me. We going to need him.
