Dominance Offensive Daily Quests Guide (WoW MoP 5.4)

5 comments

Dominance Offensive Dominance Offensive is an in-game event released in Patch 5.1. It recounts the establishment of Domination Point (the first Horde settlement on Pandaria) in western Krasarang Wilds. Dominance Offensive is also the name of the Horde faction that you will interact with at Domination Point.

As the event progresses (i.e., as your reputation increases through doing daily quests), you will be given short quest lines that contain a lot of lore information regarding the events that will eventually lead to the combined Alliance-Horde assault on Orgrimmar to dislodge Garrosh Hellscream from power (the culminating battle of the Mists of Pandaria expansion, which was announced at Blizzcon 2011).

1. Overview↑top

Dominance Point starts by Meet the Scout, a quest automatically given to level 90 players on Pandaria. After a short introductory quest line, where you will witness the arrival of Garrosh Hellscream on Pandaria and the construction of Domination Point, you will be able to start doing daily quests and increase your reputation with Domination Point.

As your standing with the Domination Offensive faction increases, you will be given short quest lines to complete. They usually contain a lot of lore information, which we chose not to detail here to avoid spoiling your experience.

Dominance Offensive and Operation: Shieldwall, its Alliance counterpart, have been touted as a World PvP Event. In reality, World PvP is limited to taking a few objectives that grant useful (but nowhere near mandatory) buffs to players of the holding faction. See our dedicated section for more information.

There are a number of rewards associated with the event, mainly a mount and new Valor Point gear.

We estimate that it will take a month worth of daily quests to reach exalted reputation with Dominance Offensive.

You can speed up the process by doing the Dominance Offensive Work Order at your farm (see our Tillers guide).

1.1. Grand Commendation of the Dominance Offensive

As soon as you reach revered reputation with the Dominance Offensive, make sure to purchase the Grand Commendation of the Dominance Offensive Icon Grand Commendation of the Dominance Offensive from the faction quartermaster. Using this item will allow you to reach exalted reputation much faster.

1.2. Champion A Faction

In order to increase your reputation gains with the Dominance Offensive, you can choose to champion them in the reputation tab of your character panel. This will cause you to gain addition reputation when doing various activities, but mostly through running Heroic dungeons and scenarios.

2. Rewards↑top

In addition to the gear, which we describe next, you can earn a few rewards.

Grand Armored Wyvern Icon Grand Armored Wyvern is a mount sold by Tuskripper Grukna for 2000 Gold, after you reach exalted reputation with Dominance Offensive.

Grand Commendation of the Dominance Offensive Icon Grand Commendation of the Dominance Offensive unlocks a 100% reputation gain on your other characters. This item can be bought for 50 Gold from Tuskripper Grukna, after you reach revered reputation with Dominance Offensive.

Dominance Offensive Icon Dominance Offensive Campaign is an achievement that you will earn after doing all the quest lines that will be offered to you as your reputation increases. It will require you to reach exalted reputation.

Grand Wyvern Icon Grand Wyvern is a flying mount that you receive as a reward for the final quest of the chain (once you have reached exalted reputation).

I'm In Your Base, Killing Your Dudes Icon I'm In Your Base, Killing Your Dudes is an achievement that you will earn after killing all three Alliance Champions in Lion's Landing. See our section on rare elites, for more information.
