Mists of Pandaria

Riko has yet to earn his 'name name' among the hozen of Grookin Hill, and is volunteered by Chief Kah Kah to act as guide to the Horde scouting party. When Sergeant Gorrok is attacked by the Jade Witch, Riko flees with Shokia and Kiryn. Riko soon develops romantic feelings for Kiryn, and when she is trapped by the jinyu, defies Shokia's orders in order to save Kiryn's life. When Riko frees Kiryn from the jinyu nets, he requests a kiss as reward for his actions. Kiryn agrees to grant this reward, but when she removes her mask, Riko is shocked and confused by her ravaged, undead face, and flees, leaving Shokia and Kiryn without a guide. However, when Kiryn finds herself again trapped and at the mercy of an overwhelming number of attackers (during the attack on Pearlfin Village), Riko appears from nowhere to save her once again, declaring that he doesn't care about her "weird dead face".


Riko joined Garrosh's army and traveled to Durotar, where he oversaw the docks in Bladefist Bay.

Siege of Orgrimmar

Riko took part in the Siege of Orgrimmar, fighting for the rebels. After battling their way into Garrosh's inner sanctum, Riko, along with other members of the Horde (including the other members of Nazgrim's party), held off waves of Kor'kron for the adventurers. In return, he asked that he be allowed to take credit for killing Garrosh Hellscream in order to impress Kiryn.

He can also be seen in the Celestial Court on the Timeless Isle as well as during the Celestial Tournament standing with Rivett Clutchpop.


Riko narrates both of the above quests, and the player plays the role of Riko in H [86] Scouting Report: The Friend of My Enemy. Riko also participates in H [86] Scouting Report: On the Right Track and H [86] Scouting Report: Like Jinyu in a Barrel.
