[Bug?] As a horde doing an alliance scenario?

So I am a horde character and I think this game just bugged. I am in a scenario where Varian and Whisperwind are talking, and made us setup construction sites next to the Temple of the Crane.

I have never done this before, like ever.

Is this an alliance only scenario, or have I just never gotten this after over 100+ scenarios played?

Or, the server is bugged.

Is this normal?

Were you disguised?
By the scenario?

Read the Patch Notes for 5.2.

There is only a bug if you're not being Shapeshifted to some Alliance Race.

It's not a bug. They made it so that it turns you into an Alliance race and lets you do the scenario.

Oh, okay, this is new to 5.2 then. Really cool. I was wondering why. Just seemed weird. Reminded me of the Northrend xpac where in the Cavern of Times you turned into Alliance and did a heroic.

Thanks.

Yup, we added a change to allow players of both factions to experience the scenario and see what the other faction has been up to. The cool thing is, the new scenarios coming in 5.3 will also be available to players of both factions.

From 5.2 patch notes:

  • Lorewalker Cho has two new tales to tell: Dagger in the Dark and A Little Patience. Though his mystical story-weaving magic (and well, the Dungeon Finder), both Alliance and Horde characters are now able run these previously faction-specific Scenarios.

    There needs to be an expansion where the scenarios and dungeons turn us into something other than elves and humans. Every time one of my hordies land in the caverns of time or now this new scenario, I think:

    "Ewww. Look at me!!!! I'm a monster. Bleh."

    Agreed... or at least change the options of the character you get.

    As a woman that plays some male characters it's pretty disturbing to go in there with my blood elf priest and find myself being a bald old man T_T

    I was a Troll for Dagger in the Dark. It made me laugh. :)

    I'm curious to know this as well. If they aren't already, it would be a nice touch to see players have their race changed for a cross-faction scenario.

    Edit: Seems Lull already answered that question. Good to know.

  • Even though there's only one Alliance Scenario for the Horde to experience.

    Go nuts, guys.

    I think the only "bug" is that this one never came up in random scenarios for me until last night, and talking to others it seems they've never seen it.

    I would love to see a random-scenario system where it goes "ooh you haven't done this one yet, here, go nuts" ;)
