The way of the Tushui is one of a principled life. Followers of this discipline believe there is a moral certainty to the world: one correct path of right and wrong.

These Values are immutable, and must be preserved no matter what the cost. Even if it means self sacrifice, or painful losses in the pursuit of a higher ideal.

The Path of the Huojin is marked by practical and decisive action. Followers of this discipline believe that morals and ideals are not absolute, but change with circumstances.

As such, a Huojin Master must remain flexible in his or her thinking, always evaluating the greater good.

The Council of Six Daggers
The pages within contain the story of the six master warlock trainers who unlocked the secrets of the most destructive forces to ever threaten Azeroth.
This rare alliance resulted in the new magics which were unleashed to all Warlock sects after The Cataclysm.

In the wake of The Cataclysm, the rising tensions between The Horde and Alliance have driven the greatest heroes of Azeroth to train for war. Warriors have readied their war banners. The Death Knights of Acherus have learned to control the Undead and it is even said the mages are researching ways to undo time itself.

Word of these new threats compelled the Warlocks to action. Convening in shadows, a council of six fought about what must be done to ensure the supremacy of their order, after several nights of blame, bickering, and signed beareds, the human Warlock Kanrethad spoke out:

"The relentless darkness which bathed Azeroth has been pushed back. Cho'Gall is slain and the remnants of the Twilight's Hammer cult have been scattered. Ragnaros is defeated and his armies forced back into the Firelands. Deathwing lies torn apart and his twilight drakes obliterated. However, the powers they commanded are not so easily forgotten... powers untapped and ripe for the taking."

"In fact, among us now stands several who have faced their power firsthand." He said, pointing at a hooded figure across the room. A deep, sinister laugh echoed through the room as his hood burst into flames and burned away to reveal the orc enchanter Ritssyn.

"It is true, pink skin, I was there when the Firelord was vanquished. The intensity of his flame was unlike anything you can imagine." the burning glow of Ritssyn's eyes cast eerie shadows over his burn-scarred face and thick-tusked grin.

"Untrue." spat a sharp, feminine voice, Shinfel. A Blood Elf adorned with sharp spikes of twilight elementium glared across the table, "Until you've been a prisoner within your own mind you know nothing of horror." Shinfel's blood had been corrupted during the fight with Cho'gall and her arms were now covered in black marks left behind by the corruption that had erupted from her skin. The experience had only served to increase the intensity of her sadism. Shinfel continued, "Even the Firelord's flames were overshadowed by the raw chaos unleashed by the Destroyer." She paused a moment and glanced to a Worgen who remained eerily silent. Zinnin had been present when Deathing was unmade and had not spoken a word since. Zinnin's eyes narrowed for a moment, then snarled at Ritssyn.

Kanrethad stood up from the table and took a deep breath. "This is exactly why we are here. I have no love for any of you, but we each bore witness to pieces of even greater power. Imagine - if we fused the molten fury of the Firelands with the unstoppable chaos of Deathwing, even the powers of the burning legion could not hold a candle to our flames!"

Ritssyn kicked his boots upon the table and snickered. "And just who would do this? You?" he spat. "I think not. You haven't been seen in battle since the siege of the Black Temple. If it weren't for having shared the secrets of Illidan's transformation with this council, I would kill you just for having the audacity of summoning me."

Kanrethad's lips pursed for a moment, but he relaxed and continued. "No, the scope of this task exceeds the capabilities of any single member here. I propose this council split into pairs. Ritssyn and Zinnin would lead a group into Sulfuras. Similarly, Shinfel and Zelfrax would hunt down the remaining members of the Twilight's Hammer cult and ... persuade them to share what they learned."

A pock-faced Gnome applauded with mirthful glee. Kanrethad continued, "then we return... one year from now and take the results of our expeditions back to our own sects. More powerful than we would have been alone."

Ritssyn frowned as he saw the greed drown out in the Human's words dance across the council's faces, "And what would keep us from simply killing our partner in their sleep once it was a success?"

Kanrethad's brow furrowed and he growled, "Which is why we swear that if any member of this council breaks the contract and fails to return or returns alone, the others shall strike them down and banish their soul forever. We either succeed together or die alone."

Ritssyn knew at that moment there was no turning back. To decline was to invite his own death, and Kanrethad had seen to that already. He could defeat the human singlehandedly, but against all five? No. Not now... but after learning the secrets of the destroyer that zinnin held...

"Fine. I can play along with your fool's errand. But first I must know, where will you and that miserable forsaken Jubeka be going?"
"Me?" spoke Kanrethad with a wicked grin, "Why I'm returning... to Outland."
Hozen Lore Objects

Most Jinyu scholars believe these additional words to be uncharitable or offensive in nature, but the matter is far from closed.

To quote the Great Sage Ook Ook, "You can take the derk out of the jib, but you shouldn't put the jib in the derk."

Wise words indeed, we think.

Many jinyu are cast as workers, diligently put to work building dams or other structures. Others are selected to be craftsmen, and immediately undergo a rigid apprenticeship on hatching.

Only warriors and priests are given access to the most food and findest shelters, and only the most successful of priests can ascend to the role of elder or waterspeaker. It is a taboo for the jinyu castes to intermingle.

Originally they would scavange for polished stone and materials in the river. They developed an eye for the places that would provide the best quality baubles and rocks.

Over the ages they have learned to manipulate water through their magics to craft exceptional edifices of the rock and stone that defy rivalry. Their weapons and armor are as hard as any forged steel, and their walls often appear to be constructed without seams.

Over time the wisest of their people learned to commune with the waters of the river and listen for the future and news it would bring. This elders were respected by most races and earned their title of "Waterspeakers".

They surround a series of pool on a field of gold - perhaps a rendering of the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. One of the primitive creatures holds a staff aloft beside the waters, but the symbols that surround his head are unfamiliar to you. These crude drawings are ancient, and perhaps may be of use to the Lorewalkers.
Yaungol Lore Objects

However, with the constant threat from the mantid to their south, the yaungol cannot afford to lose a single warrior in an internal struggle for power.

A surprisingly civilized solution to this problem has been put into place. When a dispute arises between two yaungol, a banner is placed beneath them. They then fight one another with blunted weapons until one yields or passes out.

Similarly, new leaders are chosen in ritual combat: a yaungol who aspires to take the place of chief must place his family banner and fight any who would challenge his authority.
Quote:
Originally Posted by Yaungoil

It is also an old tactic of the Yaungol to light more campfires each night than people they have. In this way, enemy spying in the darkness would assume larger numbers of Yaungol existed, while their true positions and numbers remained masked.
Quote:
Originally Posted by Yaungol Tactics
Forced to survive in the harsh terrain of the Townlong Steppes since the time of the last pandaren emperor, the yaungol emperor have adapted their tactics accordingly.

The race is constantly on the move, establishing short-lived "Fire Camps" in areas of abundant natural resources (specifically oil and game) before moving on. Where to set up camp, how long to stay, and when to move out remains the sole discretion of the chieftain.

In combat, the yaungol prefer to hit hard and fast, making heavy use of cavalry to flank and harass the enemy while hard-hitting infantry assaults the weakest parts of the enemy line. Fire sorcery and flaming siege weapons back this initial assault.

Yaungol are known to retreat as quickly as they charge, always reading the enemy and only fully committing their forces to sure victories.
Quote:
Originally Posted by Trapped in a Strange Land
The origins of the yaungol are unclear. The earliest historical record of the race dates back to the time of the mogu emperor Qiang the Merciless. His scholars describe nomadic tribes of "intelligent bovine hunters" who roamed "expansive hunting grounds beyond the western reaches of the empire."

It is thought that several tribes of these hunters were trapped in Pandaria when the continent was separated from the mainland during the Sundering.
Imprisoned in the dangerous Townlong Steppes, the hardy yaungol were forced to adapt, weaponizing local supplies of oil and developing their own aggressive culture.

Few races can stand toe-to-toe against the mantid in open ground. For this reason alone, the yaungol survivors are to be feared and respected.
Mogu Lore Objects

Their ancient research delivered to them methods of turning flesh to stone, and back again. Lifeless rock could be animated, providing a willing (or unwilling) soul could be captured within.

These dark rituals created the Stoneborn, soldiers of jade and dark magic forged from the living essence of conquered victims. These creations were powerful... terrible to behold, and above all else, one hundred percent loyal to their mogu masters.
Quote:
Originally Posted by Valley of the Emperors

Here lies the Valley of the Emperors, the resting grounds of a hundred generations of warlords, kings and emperors who once ruled this land.
Grave-rob at your own risk!
Quote:

From his perch high on the cliffs overlooking the Krasarang Wilds he oversaw the slow clear-cutting of the jungle, the establishment of Dojanni Dungeons, and the gradual genocide of the saurok race.

What he didn't expect was for the remains of the saurok fifth and seventh legions to scale the enormity of the cliffs in the dead of night, ambushing his imperial pavilion from the Valley of Four Winds and forcing him over the edge.

His body was never found. And the resulting disarray in the capitol left the empire in chaos for over two years while the saurok melted back into the wilds and disappeared...

Soon, saurok guards began to plunder the very people they were supposed to police. They grew disobedient, turning on their own mogu commanders whenever they were displeased with the spoils of war.

Emperor Dojan responded in the traditional magu way: the souls were ripped from every living saurok in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, and he demanded the same fate for the legions still in the field. So began the Great Purge.
Quote:

The mogu death toll began to climb as the rebels poisoned water supplies and sabotaged structures.

In his fury, the Emperor Dojan continued to send troops, slaves, and weapons to Krasarang in an effort to eradicate what remained of the saurok.
They were never successful.

Masters of sound, the Mantid long ago found a way to use amber to extend the range of their acoustic casting. In this way they are able to communicate over vast distances. No army has successfully marched on Mantid lands undetected, and even lone travellers are urged caution as their movements are no doubt being watched the moment they venture beyond the wall.

The Empress and her council of Klaxxi safeguards the great trees of Townlong Steppes - the "Kypari" they are called- as the only source of their precious amber. Legend has it that the Kypari once flourished east of the wall, but the Mogu cut them all down in their never-ending war against the Mantid swarm.
Quote:

Mantid survivors make their way back to the great tress, often bearing trophies of their conquests. There, they are welcomed back into the Mantid society, and take their place among their civilization according to the level of their deeds.

The purpose of this rite of passage is unclear. but those who travel beyond the wall are forewarned: any Mantid you encounter beyond the wall is a hardened veteran, to be feared and respected.
Quote:

Though Mantid Empresses are long-lived they are not immortal. A council of Mantid Elders, known as the Klaxxi, see to the organized transfer of power from one Empress to the next. The exact nature of the exchange is extremely secretive, but it appears to involve a trial by combat. Remains of the previous Empress are fer to her successor. For this reason the unbroken line of power has extended throughout the entire history of the Mantid civilization.

Though few in number, the Klaxxi evidently play a pivotal role in shaping and protecting Mantid culture. It is unclear if they can directly countermand the will of the Empress, however.

For a lifetime more he wandered on until he found at least the secret to bind all of his sensory beers into one master recipe, the Four Senses Brew.

Pandaren monks took advantage, developing fast strikes and the skill to quickly move around the battlefield. The larger, slower mogu were often completely disoriented by the speed of pandaren monks in open combat.

Over the years, fighting styles have changed dramatically, incorporating any number of other abilities, weapons, styles, etc. But the core foundation of pandaren fighting techniques remains the same: Defeat an opponent of any size with your bare paws if you have to.

TO help combat fatigue, maintain morale, and return the wounded to work, the mogu permitted a special caste of slaves that specialized in the brewing of remedies. Simple teas and poultices were their specialty at first. Over the years these specialists became healers, community leaders, and brewmasters.
A noble tradition was born, and these early "monks" became symbols of hope and pride amongst the pandaren.

It was these heroes who first learned how to fight without weapons, in secret. Monks taught the other slaves the secrets of martial arts. When the revolution came, the monks were the first into battle, inspiring the humble farmers, smiths, and masons to follow...

With a light heart the young emperor stood before the prophet and awaited to hear what he presumed would be good news.

The Waterspeaker listened to the song of the great river, but his eyes widened with terror.

From the Book of Burdens, Chapter 1:
"And the Waterspeaker saw before him a kingdom of sorcerers surrounding a great well, and from this well they called forth a host of demons. Green fire rained from the skies, and all the world's continents shattered."

From the Book of Burdens, Chapter 3:
"Forlorn and without hope, the Last Emperor ascended the sheer slope of the Mount Neverest. Daggers of cold sliced trough his silken robes, and the biting wind heaped scorn on his journey."

"Only at the very peak of the mountain did the Emperor find quiet and solace, and here he spoke with the Jade Serpent, the spirit of Wisdom."
The Jade Serpent urged Shaohao to divest himself of his burdens to purify his spirit, and to become one with the land.

The Emperor was perplexed by the Jade Serpent's counsel, but no further answers were to be found atop the frigid peak. Dejected, Emperor Shaohao trudged back down the mountain to consult his companion, the Monkey King, and determine his next move.

"Well yes every hundred years they swarm the wall and threaten my people." Shao Hao was beside himself, the thought of saving the Mantid had never occurred to him.

"You have done much to become one with the land, my Emperor, but the Mantid are as much a part of the land as you are. Their assault on the wall is a cycle, a cycle that has been going on for a longer that your people have existed. They define you as much as you define them."

Shao Hao pondered this for a long while. All around the mountain, destruction rained down. Far to the north, a Maelstrom was beginning to form, time was of the essence.

But the words of the Jade Serpent struck a chord with Shao Hao. Once again he raised his staff, closed his eyes and concentrated.

And this time the land of Pandaria separated from the rest of Azeroth. The citizens of the land all bowed and cheered and celebrated!

As the land drifted further out to sea, the oceans swelled and shaped in to a ring of mists surrounding the land and hiding it away from the world.

It was then that Shao Hao struck the ground with a clack. All eyes turned to their Emperor in time to watch him dissipate in to mist and seep in to the ground.

Shao Hao, Last Emperor of Pandaria had become one with the land, forever watching over and protecting his people.

From the Book of Burdens, Chapter 5:
"Shaohao meditated for three days and three nights, for the counsel of the Jade Serpent was unclear. How could one purge oneself of all doubt?""Weary of waiting, Shaohao's travelling companion the Monkey King whittled a strange grimacing visage out of bamboo. He urged the Emperor to place the mask of doubt on his face..."

While mischief was the Monkey King's motivation, the mask worked - As Shaohao pulled the mask away, his doubts took on a physical form. For seven hours they fought, until the Sha of Doubt was buried.

From that day onward, the Last Emperor had no doubt that he would save Pandaria from the Sundering. He became a creature of Faith.

From the Book of Burdens, Chapter 9:
"After his success in the Jade Forest, Emperor Shaohao was filled with courage but fretted over an uncertain future. He sought the counsel of the Red Crane, the spirit of hope, deep within the Krasaran Wilds."

"The Red Crane told the Emperor that hope was within all of us, if we looked deep enough. With that, the Monkey King presented Emperor Shaohao with a Mask of Despair. A forlorn visage of terrible sadness. The Emperor donned the mask and drew out his own hopelessness..."

The Battle against the Sha of Doubt lasted four days and five nights in a pouring rain. But with the help of the Red Crane and the Monkey King, all of the Shaohao's despair was extinguished.

From that day forth the Emperor knew the future was bright. He became a creature of hope.

From the Book of Burdens Chapter 14:
"Although purged of doubts and despair, Emperor Shaohao was still overcome by fear. He sought the counsel of the Black Ox, spirit of bravery and fortitude who lived in the steppes beyond the wall"

"The Black Ox, Red Crane, Emperor, and Monkey King discussed the nature of fear at great length, until at last the Monkey King was inspired to act. A mask of fear was created, terrifying to behold. With trembling, the emperor donned the horrific mask, so as to draw forth his own fears..."

The battle against the Sha of Fear lasted a week and a day, during which time legend has it that the sun never rose. When the Sha was at last defeated and imprisoned in the earth, Emperor Shaohao was forever changed, for he longer felt his own fears. He became a creature of courage.

From the Book of Burdens, Chapter 19:
"Confident and fearless, Emperor Shaohao thought nothing could stop him. But at the urging of the Red Crane, he sought the counsel of the White Tiger, the spirit of strength."

"The White Tiger saw in Shaohao a dangerous recklessness that often accompanies those with no fear. He gathered together the greatest warriors of Pandaria to test the Emperor."

"Emperor Shaohao was given a ten-foot pole and was challenged to strike one of the warriors. For hours they fought, but the warriors were too quick and too nimble for the untrained Emperor. He grew angry, he cursed, and finally, broke the staff over his knee."

Humbled, the Emperor asked the White Tiger what was wrong, and learned that his own passions made him weak. To save Pandaria, Shaohao would have to combat his own anger, hatred, and violence.

The Monkey King sprang into action and carved three masks. The Emperor wore each mask in turn, and with the help of his friends as well as all the greatest warriors of Pandaria, the Sha of Anger, the Sha of Hatred, and the Sha of Violence were defeated and imprisoned beneath the ground.

The Emperor was forever changed, and as he set forth on the final lef of his adventure, he was a creature of patience, love, and peace.

Emperor Shaohao knew that the dark energy of the Sha - the physical embodiment of negative emotions like anger, fear, hatred or doubt - represented a great threat to the pandaren if allowed to fester beneath the land. He tasked the greatest warriors of Pandaria with the duty to restrain and control the Sha.

On this very location, mere hours after Emperor Shaohao bested his own anger, hatred, and violence, the first of the Shado-Pan took their knee and spoke an oath to the Last Emperor. The same words have been spoken by every Shado-Pan initiate ever since, for the last ten thousand years.

Everyone was proven wrong when Liu Lang returned five years later, spouting tales of mysterious lands beyond the sea. He would go on to return to Pandaria every five years for the rest of his days, his turtle growing bigger and bigger with each visit, until it was large enough to house an entire colony.

Pandaren afflicted with the wanderlust often stared out across the sea awaiting his return. To this day, when someone is caught gazing off to the horizon for any reason, they are often askef if they are "Waiting for the turtle."

Spirit money: a piece of golden papar with elaborate designs depicting items of great value.
perhaps another spirit will find use for it

sell price 11g ,found off a spirit in jade forest


High quality crocolisk leather :this small patch of leatger is of very high quality.while not large enough for use in clothing,it could be useful for decorative purposes

sell price 9g,found off a crocolisk

and last of all

Porcupine quill:
some use these for ornamental purposes. you should be able to find a merchant willing to pay a good price

6g 10 silver

maybe useful for a future faction?
I think it's just to add more 'flavor' to the world, but who knows

Curl posted the Shao Hao lore (he only missed one, part 5 or 6 I thought) and someone also posted the Jinyu origins in the MoP Beta thread.

Here are some Hozen lore-object locations:

Quote:
Hozen Maturity - Located in a cave on the eastern tip of Unga Ingoo, the southmost island of the Nayeli Lagoon in the Krasarang Wilds

The Hozen Ravage - Located in a small cave along the north mountain wall of 'The Dooker Dome' area, northeast of the Kota Basecamp at Kun-Lai Summit

Hozen Speech - Located on the south side of Camp Nooka Nooka in the Jade Forest, look for a jade Hozen statue near the road before reaching Tigers' Wood
Here are some Monk ones:

Quote:
The First Monks: Jade Forest at Thunderpaw Refuge (slightly south west from Tian Monastery).

Pandaren Fighting Tactics: Paoquan Hollow in Valley of the Four Winds, where you train with Master Bruised Paw
Those of Liu Lang, the first Pandaren explorer:

Quote:
Waiting for the Turtle - A hard to miss statue on the beach just east of The Incursion in The Krasarang Wilds

The Wandering Widow: Valley of the Four Winds at Stormstout Brewery
A Most Famous Bill of Sale: Valley of the Four Winds outside the doorway at the upper most building in Halfhill.

The Birthplace of Liu Lang, Stonplow in Valley of the Four Winds. Outside on terrasse of the house with quest-npc's
For the ones who have the Beta, it would be very cool if you take a picture/post the texts on the objects here.

That part with the slaves is interesting. And it gives me the shivers on my back of epicness.

Good job. Do the "???" boxes have only question mark because there's no actual description, you haven't found them yet, or because they're in Russian?
