Path of Conquerors entrance

Path of Conquerors exit to Whispercloud Rise

Shin Whispercloud and his balloon on Whispercloud Rise

Speak with Mishi to travel to the Path of Conquerors. From there find Shin Whispercloud at Whispercloud Rise.

Provided item:  [The Tongue of Ba-Shon]


The villagers of Zouchin know the coast better than anyone in Kun-Lai. If the Zandalari are hiding on one of the islands, they will know.

Mishi will take you as far as Emperor's Path. I will go ahead to speak with the village elders.

Follow the path to Whispercloud Rise. Shin Whispercloud will help you reach the village.


You will receive: 10g 60s


The Zandalari are nearby, <name>. We must hurry!


The elders have agreed to help us figure out where the Zandalari have hidden the Thunder King's remains.

They have a few conditions, though...


  • 162000 XP


Head upstairs and out. Immediately outside (and not at her previous location) is Mishi. Speak with her:

<Mishi looks at you inquisitively.>
Gossip I'm ready to leave.
She switches to full-size form and flies to the southeast, turning north before passing the Temple of the White Tiger and drops players off in a shallow circular pool.

Keep travelling north through the Path of Conquerors and down the steps. It opens up to Whispercloud Rise. Speak with Lin Whispercloud for more background information or find Shin Whispercloud next to the balloon. Speak with him:

Seeing scenery this beautiful really puts things into perspective.
Gossip I'm ready to leave.
The adventurer hops in the hot air balloon with Shomi, who narrates:
Shomi says: I hope you don't mind sharing the balloon with me. My father always told me not to talk to strangers, but you seem friendly.
Shomi says: Isn't Zouchin Province beautiful? I've lived here my whole life.
Shomi says: My father thinks it's too dangerous beyond Zouchin's walls for a lady. He only lets me leave when we need supplies from One Keg.
Shomi says: The way I see it is, I'm not very good at being a lady, so maybe I'd make a better adventurer like you.
Shomi says: Those ruins creep me out. They're so old...
Shomi says: Wait... what's that?! Where did all of those huts come from?!
Shomi says: Look at those boats! Where are they coming from?!
Shomi says: Oh no! Look at those huts! Why are they attacking defenseless villagers?
Shomi says: My village is under attack! I hope my family is alright.
Shomi says: It looks like my father was wrong. Even Zouchin can be dangerous!
Shomi says: I have to check on my family! Please help us!
She runs down the path from the hot air balloon landing south toward the village.

Follow her. Make sure to pick up the flight path! Cho is inside the inn, the North Wind Tavern, along with two of the village elders, Chi and Hou. They are having a heated conversation...

Lorewalker Cho says: I assure you <name> is the best fighter I've ever seen. <He/She> will be able to better prepare your village.
Elder Hou says: Promises, promises! There is nothing you can do to save us. The Zandalari are ruthless!
Elder Chi says: So negative all the time Hou!
Elder Chi says: What is it you plan to do to help us Lorewalker?
Lorewalker Cho says: For starters, your villagers need rest. We can offer you protection long enough to allow them a break.
Lorewalker Cho says: <Name> can also teach your villagers to defend themselves.
Elder Hou says: Even if we could defend ourselves they outnumber us! There is no way we will win!
Elder Chi says: That may not be true Hou. The Lorewalker seems confident. What will your protection cost us?
Lorewalker Cho says: All we ask is help in finding Prophet Khar'zul. You know the surrounding islands better than we do. Your knowledge would be invaluable.
Elder Chi says: Very well. If you help us fend off the Zandalari, we will help you find the Prophet.
Lorewalker Cho says: Thank you Elders. We will not dissapoint[sic] you.
