Notes and trivia

  • Sungshin's grandfather told her stories of Lin family noodle shop on the Timeless Isle, which was famous,[2] and knew details like of the turtles just offshore of the isle.[3]
  • In early Legion development, she was a judge in the Cooking Tournament in Dalaran.


This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

Sungshin appears to be an older matronly pandaren, perhaps a grandmother. If her grandfather, who likely visited the Timeless Isle, was the last generation to see it, it could mean the isle was last present about five generations ago.
