Siege of Niuzao Temple is a dungeon in World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, set on one of the western islands of the Townlong Steppes.


Dungeon Journal

Niuzao Temple extends across two fortified islands far beyond a towering wall called the Serpent's Spine. For years, tenacious pandaren defenders have protected the narrow bridges connecting the isles, staving off any would-be invaders. Yet recently, the mantid created their own bridge--a massive tree root--and seized one of the islands by surprise. Now, these brutal insectoids are poised to assault Niuzao's remaining guardians.


Niuzao's precious' temple is under siege! Help him take it back! You'll go up a big ramp up to the top of the temple, but on the way you encounter Vizier Jin'bak; an alchemist. Kill him to continue moving forward. You reach to the top and spot Shado-Pan soldiers. They have names: Yang Ironclaw, Li Chu and Lo Chu. They're outnumber but glad you arrived to give a taste back at the Mantid. Commander Vo'jak commands the battalion below and must be clear to gain access farther. You enter the camping site and see swarms of them. General Pa'valak commands this part of the swarm and must be dealt with to finish off the siege. He didn't go down without a fight. Finally, you reach the bridge and Wing Leader Ner'onok awaits you at the end. Kill him to denied the siege and claim victory!
