Patch 5.1: New Alliance footage of Lion's Landing
SPOILER ALERT! This video contains spoilers about 5.1, Varian, Anduin, all manner of Alliance and Pandaria spoilers. Even a few Horde ones. Watch at your own risk.

This video, like the Horde one posted earlier, relates to quest chains for the new factions appearing in Krasarang Wilds with Patch 5.1. The Horde faction is the Dominance Offensive, but our interest here lies with the Alliance Faction, Operation: Shieldwall. The faction is stationed in Lion's Landing, where they landed after sending their elite force ahead to assist the White Pawn.

Like almost all Pandaria-based factions, Operation Shieldwall comes with quest chains, from which this spoiler-tastic video is extracted. These quests award reputation, which can also be earned via the completion of daily quests, and allows the purchase of various items.

But that's not the sole focus of this video! More spoilers after the break.

The video shows a reunion between the wayward child of Stormwind, Anduin Wrynn, and his father, King of Stormwind Varian Wrynn. This will be a relief for those who were concerned about Anduin's health after earlier datamining indicated that he might have been killed by Hellscream's forces.

The two Alliance nobles discuss the sanctity of Pandaria, and the importance of maintaining peace, a concern which has apparently not crossed the minds of their warring opponents. A dwarf named Hilda Hornswuggle appears to inform the two royals of a Horde encampment in a temple to their west, surrounded by night elf rangers. Varian wants to head off and have a little chat with Tyrande...

Mists of Pandaria is here! The level cap has been raised to 90, many players have returned to Azeroth, and pet battles are taking the world by storm. Keep an eye out for all of the latest news, and check out our comprehensive guide to Mists of Pandaria for everything you'll ever need to know.
