An Urgent Plea
86 (Requires 85)
Recover the Staff of Pei-Zhi and interrupt the mogu ritual in the center of the Terrace of Ten Thunders.
<Your mind is racked with a howl. Beneath it, a wispy voice is barely audible, as if from far away.>
Please... help... heart of the ruins... a ritual... conjuring...
...should not be here...
My staff... on the altar... use it. Please hurry.
("Pei-Zhi: Take my staff from the altar and charge it with Anceint[sic] Spirits!")
Spirit-binding! How can the mogu have been allowed to resume such a disgusting practice?! And now here I am, the product of a half-failed conjuring...
<The spirit fumes for a moment, then turns to you.>
What century is this?
Allow me to introduce myself: I am Pei-Zhi, Master Spiritsage under the last pandaren emperor Shaohao.
At least... I was.

Upon completion of Break the Cycle and Simulacrumble, this quest is automatically accepted. Head northwest in the ruins to find Shan Jitong <Waker of Spirits> conjuring something with Pei-Zhi. Just below Pei-Zhi's floating body is the Staff of Pei-Zhi on the altar. Pick it up, then start killing the Ancient Spirits Shan Jitong is summoning. Each kill is worth 5%.
- Shan Jitong says: What do you think you're doing?! No matter - I no longer need the staff.
- Slay Ancient Spirits to empower the Staff of Pei-Zhi!
- Shan Jitong says: Ancestors, hear me! I call you back from the beyond, to bind this spirit to my will!
- Shan Jitong says: Enough of your interference, <race>! Spiritclaws! Deal with this pest!
Two level 85 mogu come out, each with 152k health. They have a void zone ability, dodge it! Kill the two mogu, then return to killing the spirits.
- Shan Jitong says: More spirits! MORE! Quickly now!
- Shan Jitong says: I WILL have you, spirit sage!
- Pei-Zhi says: No. Your perversion of the dead ends here.
- Pei-Zhi says: Spirits of old, I release you from my staff! Seek your vengeance on this beast!
- Shan Jitong says: Augh! Too... much... It's too much!
- Shan Jiton says: I cannot fall here. Not with so much work left to be done...
- Shan Jitong runs forward beyond the walls and teleports.
- Pei-Zhi says: All these poor souls... here, this will lead you home.
- Pei-Zhi opens some kind of portal for the Ancient Spirits to use.
- If players level up during this quest from the two mogu that attack, the quest will bug out preventing players from completing it and keep them in combat.
- To fix this, abandon the quest and walk down to the Seat of the Spirit Waker. While you'll likely still be in combat, the staff should respawn for the quest to start up the progress bar once again.
- Patch 5.0.4 (2012-08-28): Added.
