History

Mists of Pandaria

Chi-Ji in WoW.

Shortly before the emergence of sha, Anduin Wrynn trained with him for a short time. Thanks to the efforts of Anduin and the champions of the Horde and the Alliance, Chi-Ji and his Temple of the Red Crane were freed of the corruption of the Sha of Despair.[3]

Chi-Ji and the other three August Celestials opened the gates to the Vale of Eternal Blossoms.

Chi-Ji helps the adventurer atop the Pedestal of Hope in defeating Ellia Ravenmane, who has forsaken Chi-Ji's hope and become possessed by a sha. After the fight Chi-Ji thanks the adventurer, telling them that they embodied the Way of the Crane.[2]

Chi-Ji also granted his powers to an adventurer who was about to kill Zhao-Jin the Bloodletter.

Landfall

The trial of Chi-Ji

In A Little Patience, Chi-Ji watches King Varian Wrynn as if the scenario were a test, asking "Will the wolf behave as a warrior... or a King?" At the end of the conflict, Chi-Ji seems satisfied with the king's performance, but states that there will be more trials ahead, perhaps referring to the Trials of the High King.

Rumbles of Thunder

In N [90] Rumbles of Thunder, Lorewalker Cho states that after the Pandaren revolution, Chi-Ji placed a rainbow in the skies across Pandaria. So, the Pandaren would never fear the Thunder King's wrath upon the land anymore during his reign. For now, there's no rainbows at this time...

Escalation

As part of Wrathion's legendary journey, he and an adventurer visited the Red Crane in order to get his blessing.

Timeless Isle

The trial of Chi-Ji is a test of hope. Uncertain of the future of his people, Emperor Shaohao sought out the great Red Crane. The Great Crane challenged Shaohao to find the hope within himself, and cast off his uncertainty. Once the Sha of Doubt was vanquished, the Emperor became a beacon of hope for his people. To pass the tiral of the Crane, warriors must believe in hope, even in the darkest of days.[4]

Siege of Orgrimmar

During the quest N [90] Why Do We Fight?, the celestials alongside the ghost of Shaohao, Lorewalker Cho and Adventurer gathered around to begin to heal the Vale. As he stands before the tree, he knew in the end that there was still hope in this world.

Aftermath
This tree stands as a symbol of hope. Hope that the land might in time be healed and made stronger by your deeds.
