Valley of the Four Winds storyline

Zone map

The Valley of the Four Winds storyline takes place upon the conclusion of the Jade Forest storyline and runs in parallel to the Krasarang Wilds storyline. Players land just outside Pang's Stead, where Chen Stormstout has stopped for a rest. The main storyline follows Chen and his travelling companions, Li Li and Mudmug, all over the valley to discover the Stormstout Brewery. Once the initial cleaning of the brewery is complete, players are sent to Stoneplow on the west side of the zone in the shadow of the great wall.

To advance the storyline from there, players should complete all of the N [87] The Search for the Hidden Master-started storylines to see what happens to Stoneplow. After saving Stoneplow (or as soon as adventurers reach level 87), Messenger Grummles at Stoneplow, Halfhill and the Grassy Cline bring news from Lorewalker Cho in the form of B [87] The Road to Kun-Lai, who requests the adventurer's presence atop the Kun-Lai Summit, starting the Kun-Lai Summit storyline.

Thunderfoot Fields

After flying in from the Jade Forest, players land at a small pagoda just on the Valley-side of the border. Out of nowhere, Chen Stormstout is waiting on the road along with his niece, Li Li. This first series of quests sends players all over the Thunderfoot Fields.

Chen's Masterpiece

After relating his story of being chased off from the Stormstout Brewery in N [87] Broken Dreams, Chen finds the resolve to make the best brew Azeroth has ever seen. After making the trek to Halfhill, the center of commerce in the valley, Chen sends his traveling companions out on a quest for ingredients. This three-pronged quest sends players up to the Gilded Fan for water, through the Heartland for oats, and down to the Imperial Granary for barley. Ingredients acquired, Chen takes a great deal of time to create "The Emperor", and immediately sets back off to the Stormstout Brewery.

That story continues with the trek to Stoneplow on Lin Tenderpaw's quarter of the story in N [87] Stoneplow Thirsts and N [87] Lin Tenderpaw.

The Hidden Master

Early in Chen's storyline, this quest chain opens up. After witnessing the conversation at Pang's Stead between Xiao and his traveling companions, the party heads in different directions and Xiao sends adventurers after them. Two of the four quest forks occur in the valley, but the other half comprise the Krasarang Wilds storyline.

  1. N [87] The Search for the Hidden Master
  2. Complete all of:

Clever Ashyo

On N [87] Li Li's Day Off, which is offered shortly before Chen's party reaches Halfhill, Li Li asks to look at New Cifera and the Pools of Purity. Clever Ashyo has found himself at New Cifera as well, where a few other locals offer quests. The two drop-started quests in the valley occur in this area as well.

  2. N [87] Ashyo's Vision
  3. N [87] The Golden Dream

Lin Tenderpaw

After completing the main Stormstout Brewery story, a message from Stoneplow arrives. After reaching Stoneplow, adventurers run in to Lin Tenderpaw, alarmed at the sight of the mantid invading from the Dread Wastes. After fending off the initial invasion, the leader of the town watch lets Lin in on the secret that the Hidden Master, Master Bruised Paw, is up at the Paoquan Hollow.

Ken-Ken and Kang Bramblestaff

Main article: Krasarang Wilds storyline

Assuming players stayed in the valley and have not completed Krasarang Wilds yet, upon conclusion of N [87] Training and Discipline, the flight master offers to send adventurers to the location of Ken-Ken or Kang Bramblestaff. Choose to go to Ken-Ken's location at Zhu's Watch in the northeast corner of Krasarang Wilds to complete the Krasarang Wilds storyline.

After shoring up the Zhu Province, players will cross paths with Kang at either faction's first camp (the Incursion or Thunder Cleft) on the way to the Temple of the Red Crane. When adventurers are directed to travel to their faction's second camp (Sentinel Basecamp or Dawnchaser Retreat), they will pass Koro Mistwalker just north of the temple. Save some survivors and cleanse the sha invasion focused on Chi-Ji. Grateful, Chi-Ji offers some rewards, but don't forget about the other half of the storyline.

At the second faction camp, help push back the mogu out of the west side of the zone. While rescuing prisoners of the mogu, pandaren from Stoneplow tell the story of a mantid attack on their convoy to the crane temple, and that more are on the way to attack Stoneplow itself! Once the leader of the mogu invasion force, Groundbreaker Brojai, has been taken care of, players will be sent forward to Stoneplow during B [87] Warn Stoneplow at the conclusion of the story.

Saving Stoneplow

Saving Stoneplow

After finishing all of the valley and wilds storylines up to this point, a cutscene will play when the last Hidden Master quest is turned in to Loon Mai at Stoneplow. On the other side of the cutscene, the mantid have started pushing harder into Stoneplow as the Mantid Colossus blots out the sky just on the other side of the wall. Nearly all of the major players in the valley, along with Mei Barrelbottom from Zhu's Watch, have made it to Stoneplow to defend pandaren territory.
