The Shao-Tien clan is a clan of mogu that operate mainly in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, fielding an entire army in their quest for dominance. Some of them were later captured by the True Horde and taken to Orgrimmar, where they were incarcerated in the Underhold.

Background

The mogu were already present within the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, having sent scouts through a cavern in Ruins Rise, near the Ruins of Guo-Lai.[1] By the time the Golden Lotus sealed off the cave,[2] the gates of the vale had already been opened.[3] Following this, the Shao-Tien assaulted the Golden Stair and Emperor's Approach.[4] From the Golden Stair and encampents at Winterbough Glade they would stage attacks and occasionally assault other parts of the vale.

This clan was also part of an ambush on the Golden Lotus that caught the fleeing Sunwalker Dezco and his children, sending quilen into the fray first, and then attacking themselves. While the Shao-Tien and their unnamed leader were unsuccessful in defeating the Golden Lotus, one of Dezco's sons was poisoned (though later cured), and the other crushed in the chaos that ensued.[5]

The Secrets of Guo-Lai

The Shao-Tien and their warlord Zhao-Jin also attempted to recover mogu artifacts of power within the vale, successfully securing an army of Jade Warriors[6] but (temporarily) losing three of the Thunder King's artifacts to the Golden Lotus: the  [Battle Axe of the Thunder King], the  [Battle Helm of the Thunder King], and the  [Battle Spear of the Thunder King].

Eventually the Shao-Tien mustered a final assault on the vale using the previously recovered Jade Army.[7] The Golden Lotus won the battle with the blessing of Yu'lon, Xuen, and Niuzao, while Leven Dawnblade and the Adventurer defeated Zhao-Jin the Bloodletter at the stairs of Mogu'shan Palace with the help of Chi-Ji.[8]

Siege of Orgrimmar

After the Sha corruption of the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, the Shao-Tien positioned at the Golden Stair were killed. The Shao-Tien commanders, including General Temuja and all five Imperions, appear to have survived. Many have relocated to various locations west of the Whitepetal Lake.

Elsewhere, deep below Orgrimmar in the Underhold, the Shao-Tien Elder Council and some of their followers have been taken by the True Horde under Garrosh Hellscream's orders. These mogu play an integral role in the battle with the Spoils of Pandaria.
