Background

Dungeon Journal

The ancient Mogu'shan Palace is the last true bastion of the mogu's strength. Three of their great clans recently gathered at this stunning location to meet with their king, Xin the Weaponmaster. This mighty ruler has formulated a bold plan to unite his scattered people and reclaim the glory of their fallen empire. With turmoil gripping Pandaria, Xin's lofty dream of conquest could become reality.

Overview

Upon entering the dungeon, players will find that the main hallway is closed. After fighting their way right, into a meeting hall, the group will witness an argument between king Xin and three clan leaders. The king leaves, and the three clan leaders fight the party to gain the kings favor. Upon beating them, the three clans get into a brawl with the three kings bickering, and players slip away under the cover of the dust stirred up by the fight into a hidden stairway. This stairway leads to a cavern infested with saurok pillaging a vault. After killing the saurok leader, players can ride a lift into a series of hallways where Xin's royal guards and the king himself resides. Upon the king's death, a door opens back into the meeting hall, where the three clans are still brawling. What is in the other two wings is unknown, though a lower floor is visited in the Siege of Orgrimmar.

The Mogu'shan Palace becomes available to players level 87+ after completing the quest A Witness to History / A Witness to History in Kun-Lai Summit, opening the Gate of the August Celestials to the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. As the precursor to the nearby Mogu'shan Vaults raid, players must defeat one of the last strongholds of the Mogu.

During the first encounter, players will need to kill three bosses in succession, similar to the Beasts of Northrend fight in Wrath's Trial of the Crusader raid.

Encounters

  • Gekkan ¨C As the mogu clans battle for supremacy, the cunning Gekkan leads his fearsome saurok raiding party into the palace's fabled treasure caches. Loyalty is not usually ascribed to these ruthless reptilian beings, but Gekkan's courage and tactical brilliance inspire a sense of honor in his soldiers.
  • Xin the Weaponmaster ¨C The title of weaponmaster has many definitions among Azeroth's inhabitants. To Xin, it means that mogu weaponry obeys his every command. The king is more than willing to demonstrate his deadly skills to anyone who questions his right to rule Pandaria.
  • Trial of the King ¨C Ming the Cunning, Kuai the Brute, and Haiyan the Unstoppable have journeyed to the palace with their clans, vying to prove their worth to their king. Yet these mogu factions are plagued with bitter rivalries. Violence threatens to flood the palatial grounds unless the bickering clans can find a way to test their strength without coming to blows with one another.
