Upon completion of the Pandaria exploration achievement, Lorewalker Cho sends a letter via the in-game mail system. The letter has an item attached that starts this quest. See the achievement for more details.
- Lorewalker Cho says: Great events often have humble beginnings. Consider: a quiet pond. Still. The water is like a sheet of glass.
- Lorewalker Cho says: Until I throw a stone. Such a small thing - but soon, ripples engulf the whole of the lake!
- Lorewalker Cho says: The jinyu also have humble origins. Once primitive creatures, they were fortunate enough to live near the enchanted pools within the Vale.
- Lorewalker Cho says: The magic of the pools expanded their minds and grew their bodies, until they became one of the great ancient cultures of Pandaria.
- Lorewalker Cho says: The wisest of the Jinyu are very wise indeed - they can speak to the rivers the way you and I would consult our elders.
- Lorewalker Cho says: In the whispering waters, they can hear the future.
- Lorewalker Cho says: The jinyu and their waterspeakers stand at the very heart of the greatest events of Pandaria's history.
- Lorewalker Cho says: Their visions built empires, freed slaves, and warned our Last Emperor of the Sundering that shattered Azeroth ten thousand years ago.
- Lorewalker Cho says: Think about it: the smallest voice can change the world. Consider that, friend, the next time you decide to start throwing stones!
