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: When the Sundering ripped apart the continents of Azeroth, we pandaren thought that the rest of the world had been utterly destroyed.
- Lorewalker Cho says: But as the centuries passed, one young explorer decided to see what was out there. His name was Liu Lang. And he set out to discover the world... on the back of a turtle!
- Lorewalker Cho says: We celebrate his bravery with statue and song, but if you were actually there on the beach that very day - well, I'm sure he looked quite silly, indeed.
- Lorewalker Cho says: Oh, how the pandaren laughed at him. But Liu Lang was more clever than anyone thought. Sea turtles always return to the beach where they were born. And so, despite the mists that envelop our land, he always had a way home.
- Lorewalker Cho says: Every few years, he returned - with tales of mysterious cities in the sands, nomadic people living on endless grassy plains, a great empire under the ice, and a magical kingdom gilded in gold.
- Lorewalker Cho says: Each time he returned, more and more pandaren answered Liu Lang's call, and joined him on his growing turtle. They were the bravest among us: The explorers. The adventurers.
- Lorewalker Cho says: And that is the lesson of Liu Lang, my friend. Everyone always laughs at the explorer. They always laugh... until he returns.
