The event itself is pretty epic like most of its kind the first time you do it you'll smile, after the first time though, it gets stale. It starts with a standard gathering quest but the item is somewhat unique, frogs. The next quest takes you on a ungodly long flight to throw said frogs at white smoke markers and if you're like me you'll be spending about 3 minutes tabbed after you're done with the quest because apparently you really need that second trip around the islands. After that ungodly "bombing" quest you take on the form of the tiger and fight a Troll Druid. A few average quests later you're on the epic retake of the isles.
Ready to take on the "Tiger" Matriarch
Both the Darkspear event and Operation Gnomeragon events are here to set the tone for Cataclysm, showing change throughout the old world is taking place even before Azeroth get's skull fucked by Deathwing. While the 3.9 event is sure to be more amazing,especially with the all of the zones changing with the patch(or so I've been told) this event, in its own right was pretty cool and worth the time to complete it. I'm sure a few people will be resubbing just to get the Feat of Strength for completing it.
