Breakfast Topic: So let's talk about the Theramore's Fall...

We got our first taste of released Mists of Pandaria playable content today in the Theramore's Fall scenario (read the walk-through). Queue up (hopefully for not too long) and then play through a quick group quest-like zone. It's a great concept that is sure to give everyone something to do at max level, while providing some lore content and gameplay options.

But ...

I was underwhelmed. There wasn't a lot of challenge in it (although that's what Challenge Mode dungeons are for), and it felt a little too Rift-ey for my taste. But that said, I'm not entirely sure this isn't exactly what Blizzard's going for: quick and easy. Let's also not make the mistake of judging an entire book by just one chapter.

The reactions from the community have been interesting as well. I reached out to our Twitter and Facebook audience last night, and they came back with some notable takes on the scenario:
  • Jpsmith says: "The scenario was great! Needs lead up quest to explain why Horde attacks."
  • Mingusunt tweets: "Reaction to Theramore: All the hype for that?"
  • Atara tweeted: "Seems you needed to read Tides of War to get the full story. A simple intro quest would have helped fill in the story gaps."
  • Glong said: "I've never seen a prexpac event last 10 min."
  • Brandon commented: "RIP Theramore, I'll have many fond memories of using you as a passageway into the Alliance lands. - Love, an Undead Rogue"
  • James said: "Was fun but was expecting more out of it story-wise. Resounding "meh"."
One thing I think is important to point out is that it does make a lot more sense for those that have read the book. I haven't finished Tides of War (read our detailed review) yet, but others that have tell me it helps a ton.

So let's open up the flood gates and talk about it... what do you think of Theramore's Fall?

It's open warfare between Alliance and Horde in Mists of Pandaria, World of Warcraft's next expansion. Jump into five new levels with new talents and class mechanics, try the new monk class, and create a pandaren character to ally with either Horde or Alliance. Look for expansion basics in our Mists FAQ, or dig into our spring press event coverage for more details!

Theramore's Fall release date changed, unlocking today

Ready for your first taste at scenarios? You'll get to enjoy them a day earlier, it looks like. Kaivax's post on the official forums has been updated to indicate that the Theramore event is actually releasing today (September 17) in the U.S. and not tomorrow, as was previously planned.

Bashiok hopped on and provided some additional timeframe details:

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

There are some item level requirements you'll need to be aware of before you run the scenario, so be sure to check those out. Additionally, you can get prepped for the scenario by reading our short history of Theramore; find out what all the fuss has been about over the years.

Looks like it's time to go see Jaina get mad!
