Is it just me or did this get a buff in 5.1? I have the blades one at the moment and last week it wasn't a problem, run around, dodge the mobs done.

Today I'm being belted around, I've been knocked out of the ring three times (One time after bouncing over two thirds of the field). I've had to run out twice to eat and there seems to be a lot of people in a similar situation, a lot of folks all standing around frantically healing or eating.

I hope it hasn't been change to that I can't hover over the blades in flight form while I afk for 90 seconds.

That quest has always been my favorite.

I believe they modified it because previously there was a spot you could just stand in (toward the stable) and never get hit by a panda.

And no, you don't get credit if you're airborne over the blades (and they can hit you).

The quest is very easy on a holy spec paladin, but very hard on non-healing specs, particularly those with low armor.

Right now, I just abandoned it on my rogue. Way too hard.

You used to be able to fly to one of the pylons on the outside of the ring and just dismount while on it and the mobs wouldn't hit you but you'd get credit. They removed the ability to do that becasue now the mobs knock you off the perch. I just did this on my mage and the only way I could do it was to make a stack of biscuits and spam food after getting knocked around or taking damage.

This quest is a !@#$ing disgrace, I've been doing this for 10 minutes and died about 5 times. Those bastard pandas fling you around, most of the time into the blades, and those damn blades just shred the %^-* out of me. My heals don't do anything and when I try to use my good heals I get flung into the !@#$ing blades.

In short, this quest is the absolute worse quest in the whole game. It's almost impossible and just makes your repair bill go through the %^-*ing roof.

Yes, I was just trying this on a cloth dps alt. Not going to bother doing that again. :)

Haven't gotten the quest since the patch but it was a royal pain before so not looking forward to getting it now.

Don't run around. Stand still and look to see if a panda is coming down your lane. If one is, move to another lane and back. That served me pretty well.

Bummer. I enjoyed getting credit for 90 seconds of AFK.

I bring few healing pots and do the same. It will happen once in a while you will get knocked around but try to run to the areas where there are less pandas. However I agree with the OP and other posters, it is an annoying challenge. We already have an incredible amount of dailies to finish and I think the amount of time we have to spend on this one just makes the grind a bit more aggravating.
