Mogu'shan Vaults is one of the three raids that opened with the release of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria. This six-boss raid invites adventurers to explore the hidden secrets of the elusive Mogu empire, one of the new indigenous Pandarian races.[1]

The entrance to the Vaults is found in northeast Kun-Lai Summit, accessed on Mogu'shan Terrace, overlooking the Zouchin Province far below.

Normal mode opened on October 2, 2012. First part of Raid Finder and heroic difficulties opened on October 9, and second part of Raid Finder opened on October 16.[2] Raid Finder difficulty requires an average item level of 460.

World first 10-player heroic clear was by DREAM Paragon (Lightning's Blade EU) on October 11, 2012,[3] and world first 25-player heroic clear was by Method (Twisting Nether EU) on October 13, 2012.[4]


Dungeon Journal

The mogu, proud of their supremacy, kept lengthy records of their accomplishments within a great complex of vaults. Guarded by ferocious magical beings, these sacred chambers have remained silent since the mogu's departure.


Guardians of Mogu'shan

Long dormant, this ancient archive of the mogu has awakened, as have its protectors. Danger and mystery await within...

The Vault of Mysteries

Buried deep in the mountainside, the heart of the ancient mogu repository holds a secret that may threaten all of Azeroth.


Lorewalker Cho accompanies the raid through the vaults, providing exposition on the mobs and bosses. After defeating a group of stone Quilen, the Stone Guard are fought. This awakens the spirit of Feng the Accursed, who animates several stone statues of Mogu before joining the fight himself. After slaying him, a Zandalari strike force led by Gara'jal the Spiritbinder breaks into the vault.

Free of the troll threat, the raid delves further into the vaults, where Cho presses a button in a hall of deceased rulers, animating the vengeful Spirit Kings. Deeper inside, players discover Titan technology and ghosts of Mogu'shan Wardens. The technology is protected by Elegon the celestial cloud serpent. After more lore is revealed, the raid must face Lei Shen's giant construct machine for building his armies: The Will of the Emperor. After destroying the army of terracotta warriors, the machine is destroyed.

Patch changes

  • Mists of Pandaria Hotfix (2013-10-16): Resolved an issue that prevented players from completing the Straight Six achievement.
  • Mists of Pandaria Patch 5.3.0 (2013-05-21): The Strength of One's Foes: All bosses in Mogu'shan Vaults, Heart of Fear, and Terrace of the Endless Spring now have a chance to drop either a Sigil of Power or Sigil of Wisdom.
  • Mists of Pandaria Hotfix (2013-01-22): Sigils of Power now only drop in Mogu'shan Vaults, and Sigils of Wisdom will only drop in Heart of Fear and Terrace of Endless Spring, with a very small chance to drop in LFR Mogu'shan Vaults. This should ensure that players who had access to Mogu'shan Vaults for a longer period of time are now seeing more Sigils of Wisdom.
  • Mists of Pandaria Patch 5.0.4 (2012-08-28): Added.
