Patch 5.4 PTR: How to get Golden Lotus reputation in 5.4, Anne Stickney, WoW Insider, 6/17/13.
Lore Updates: Characters Page, Warcraft Timeline, Blizzard Entertainment, us.battle.net, 6/14/13 via Lore updates for the official World of Warcraft site, Matthew Rossi, WoW Insider, 6/17/13.
The official site has been updating, including lore on the current and last patch. I love that they divide the story into chapters with short summaries, and it’s great to see Blizzard keeping it up to date.
Fearsome paladin collective crusades for the Light, Lisa Poisso, WoW Insider, 6/13/13.
The Caelestis Templares is an RP guild of fanatical paladins, sort of like the Scarlet Crusade. It sounds like a fun idea.
Note: There will be spoilers for the Golden Lotus reputation and quests in this post.
Recently Mooglegem and I had successfully retrieved three powerful artifacts once belonging to the mogu ruler, the Thunder King, and locked them away with the Golden Lotus standing guard. This past week the mogu hit the Vale very hard, and when we went to check on the artifacts, the guards were all dead and the artifacts were missing!
We began cleaning up the Vale by killing the mogu we encountered. When we approached Mogu’shan Palace, I saw a huge barrier of some sort. I joked that there must be a powerful discipline priest near because it looked like my Power: Word Barrier. Of course, what discipline priest would be strong enough to do this?
Apparently I forgot that there was one strong enough! We ran into Anduin Wrynn keeping the barrier stable. You know your in good hands when you encounter the Prince of Stormwind.
We assaulted the remaining mogu from the barrier Anduin provided and successfully drove them from the Vale. Returning to the Golden Pagoda, we were greeted with fireworks and congratulations. Despite how successful we might have been in killing the mogu, they did succeed in reclaiming the Thunder King’s artifacts. What do they have planned with those? I guess we’ll find out soon…
