So before our Heart of Fear raid last night, I managed to finish up the new patch 5.1 Dominance Offensive storyline and let me tell you, I think this is the best story arc for any of the Pandaria reputations by far. I won’t spoil it for anyone who hasn’t completed it yet, but I think Blizzard did a great job with this. We finally get some voice acting (yay!) from some very important power figures, which I truly enjoyed. And visiting familiar locales brought back a lot of memories too.
The Horde has got some tough times ahead of them and I’m excited in how it’s all going to come together in our final battle with Garrosh himself, I can’t wait to kill him already, lol.
I finally got to experience the 100% bonus reputation you get when you purchase the Grand Commendations that was also introduced in 5.1 for all Pandaria reps. I bought the Grand Commendation of the Dominance Offensive as soon as I hit Revered and it didn’t take too long before I hit Exalted. I actually got Exalted even before I finished the final two Dominance Offensive storylines, so the bonus rep adds up really fast.
When you complete the final storyline, you will earn an achievement and be rewarded with a Grand Wyvern mount.
When you reach Exalted with the Dominance Offensive, you can purchase another mount, the Grand Armored Wyvern, from Tuskripper Grukna, who is located in Domination Point in the Krasarang Wilds. The mount costs 2,000 gold, 1,800 with your Bartering guild perk.
Finally, no more reputation grinding and no more dailies, yay! Well, until Blizz introduces a new one in 5.2, lol. Now I can work more on pet battles and leveling pets. =)
