Totally confused about new factions

General Discussion
Ok, so how many new factions we'll get with 5.2?

Shado-Pan Assault? Kirin-Tor Offensive? Wtf?
Don't forget the Sunreaver Onslaught!
There's one faction-specific faction and one neutral faction.

Alliance - Kirin Tor Offensive
Horde - Sunreaver Onslaught
Neutral - Shado-Pan Assault
Shared: Shado-Pan Assault, a raid faction, like the Wardens of Hyjal, Ashen Verdict, Ashtongue Deathsworn, Violet Eye...

Alliance: Kirin-Tor Offensive, a daily faction

Horde: Sunreaver Onslaught, the mirror to the KTO.
2 New factions.

And Dinosaurs to hunt.
There's one faction-specific faction and one neutral faction.

Alliance - Kirin Tor Offensive
Horde - Sunreaver Onslaught
Neutral - Shado-Pan Assault


One operates off of dailies and the other is a raid faction. Going over the loot table you can fully gear out your character using only the raid faction.
I can help you
Garrosh is sending the newly pissed off Regent Lor'Themar who is neither loyal to the horde, nor is happy with the alliance to the front lines in Hopes he will die, accompanied by the now homeless Sunreavers.
Sunreaver Onslaught.

Varian is sending his moody new problem child who doesn't know her place and likes to make world changing decisions without consulting her master like a proper little girl. In short Varian has sent her to the front lines in the tradition of Go to the front lines and die. Alongside the Silver hand which strangely enough traditionally hates mages and the kirin tor referring to all magic users as "Lost souls" but strangely enough loves every opportunity to throw away their lives for stupid reasons.

The Kirin Tor Offensive

They are there to assist the Shadow Pan offensive a new group who thinks both sides are stupid but is willing to let both sides throw their lives away in hopes both sides die and the world can be a better place again, maybe one of them will kill the Thunder king then die.
Yeah but I think in Varian's eyes getting roflstomped into the ground by Garrosh himself and surviving is enough of a punishment for his insolence.
