Xiao is a pandaren monk found at the Banquet Grounds of the Tian Monastery in the Jade Forest. He is Master Stone Fist's best student. The master would have graduated him several times over, but Instructor Xann insists that he needs more discipline. Stone Fist also believes that young Xiao has a great future in martial arts. After the adventurer attended the banquet, Xiao sparred with them,[1] after which he sent them to Xann and Groundskeeper Wu. He and other students eventually graduated.[2]

He later joins with Lin Tenderpaw and adventurers and searches for the Hidden Master in the Valley of the Four Winds. He describes himself as the "oldest and fattest" of the group of young monks and appears to have a laid-back personality, volunteering to sit and wait while the rest of the monks searched for the Hidden Master. After his team found and trained under the Hidden Master, Xiao joined them to defend the Stoneplow village against the invading mantid.

He can be recruited as a follower in the Lunarfall and Frostwall garrisons.

Objective of

Valley of the Four Winds



Tian Monastery
  • I can't say I mind the food here. Or the beer for that matter.
  • Have you tried the rice? You really need to try the rice.
  • Eating is form of training, too, you know.
Pang's Stead
  • The long walk from the monastery was murder on my feet - and on my appetite. I think I'll spend a while here loading up on energy before I think about standing up again.
  • This place is GREAT! Have you seen how much FOOD they have here?
  • Sure, the others might have gone off on exciting adventures, but I don't mind. I'm perfectly happy right here.
