"You've come far, my young student. I see within you a great hero. I leave the fate of this land to you."
He was a skilled teacher of martial arts and philosophy. Rather than telling his students what to believe, he introduced them to ideas and let them find their own way.
Shang is the master of many aspiring pandaren adventurers on the Wandering Isle, as he leads the Shang Xi Training Grounds. Among his students were the adventurer, Ji Firepaw and Aysa Cloudsinger. Compassionate and wise, Shang Xi sensed Shen-zin Su's illness which led to the discovery of the Alliance and Horde forces on the Wandering Isle.
After finally making his way to the Wood of Staves and passing on his wisdom to his greatest student, he died. His students remained true to his legacy and saved Shen-zin Su, something that his spirit could witness and appreciate. When his students departed from the Wandering Isle, his spirit saluted them and finally went to rest with the land.
- It is good to see you, my student.
- Forget injuries. Never forget kindnesses.
- Our greatest trials yet lay before us.
- Where you pass, greatness follows.
- My time is passing...but your time approaches swiftly.
- You need a lesson in manners.
- You disappoint me, student.
- Farewell, my student.
- This broken world hungers for your insight as it teeters of the brink of war.
- Find strength in your new allies.
- Do your race proud.
- Remember well, the lessons of the Wandering Isle.
- Gossip (Shang Xi Training Grounds)
I seek more than anything to help young pandaren explore their potential within these grounds. True mastery comes with much time and much practice, but there is value even in finding the first beginnings of a fitting path.
It is crucial that we bring all of the three remaining spirits back safely. I am too old to do this myself, and for all their strengths, both Aysa and Ji are single-minded in their ideals. You possess all the qualities of a hero, and a balance that they do not. It is you that must do this.
Things that are done, it is needless to speak about... things that are past, it is needless to blame.
