Stormspeaker Qian is the apparent leader of the Rajani mogu, located in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms' Silent Sanctuary next to Ra-den's throne. He leads the defense of the Vale against the invading mantid, mogu, and forces of the Black Empire.

In the aftermath of N'Zoth's awakening, adventurers and Speaker Magni traveled to the Silent Sanctuary to ask for Ra's help with using the Engine of Nalak'sha to power the Forge of Origination, but they found Ra to be despondent and unwilling to help.[1] Qian sent the adventurers to obtain a trophy from one of the generals threatening the Vale in the hopes of convincing the Highkeeper that action should be taken.[2] Ra was impressed and—after directing the adventurers to the Engine of Nalak'sha—decided to accompany the heroes back to the Chamber of Heart, leaving Qian and the Rajani in defense of the Engine.[3]

Upon hearing that the other mogu clans had set their sights on the vale, Qian sent adventurers to help Chen and Li Li Stormstout scout out their forces.[4] When they returned with their report, the Stormspeaker declared that they would show the invading mogu what true might looked like.[5] When the Zan-Tien, Dokani, and Baruk clans finally invaded the region, Qian called on adventurers to repel their assault and prove the might of the Rajani.[6]

After Taoshi and adventurers discovered that the mantid have been corrupting their kypari trees to imbue their amber with power from N'Zoth, adventurers reported it to Stormspeaker Qian. In response, he thanked them and declared that they must keep the swarm in check.[7]

  • Qian uses a recolored gray version of Xin the Weaponmaster's model. This recolor was originally used as Lei Shen's model before he received a unique appearance in patch 5.2.
  • The PTR version of N [120] Time-Lost Warriors referred to Qian as Stormspeaker Tian. His voice files are named "stormspeaker-tian" as well.
