N [90] Cloak of Virtue

Contents

Objectives

Travel to the Temple of the White Tiger in Kun-Lai, the Temple of the Red Crane in Krasarang, the Temple of the Jade Serpent in the Jade Forest, and Niuzao Temple in Townlong Steppes to obtain four blessings of the celestials. Complete ONE of their four available challenges.

Description

I would like to grant you my full array of draconic power, but sadly, it would tear your mortal frame apart. Still, it's not hopeless - I believe I can create a powerful vessel that you can use.

To craft it, I will need the blessings of the four August Celestials in Pandaria. Travel with me to the four temples and we will speak to each. To be worthy of their gifts, you must defeat one of their challenges.

They will not be easy - chose the one challenge best suited to your equipment and skills!

Rewards

You will receive: 34g 20s

Completion

We have the four blessings of the celestials, and you have proven yourself by completing one of their challenges! I knew I saw great potential in you.

Gains

Tactics

Because of their length, tactics and strategy for the challenges has been split out to a separate article.

Notes

On accept:

Wrathion says: I will meet you at each of the four shrines, champion.
Wrathion says: Remember, we must visit all four, but we only need to complete ONE of the four challenges.
Wrathion says: Choose the challenge most appropriate for your unique talents.
Wrathion transforms into his whelp form.
Wrathion says: Good luck!

The first and only real step of the Patch 5.3 portion of Wrathion's legendary quest sends champions across the continent to visit the four temples and complete one of the four challenges. Each celestial offers a challenge:

  • Yu'lon at the Temple of the Jade Serpent: Caster/ranged (Hunter) DPS
  • Chi-Ji at the Temple of the Red Crane: Healer
  • Xuen at the Temple of the White Tiger: Melee DPS
  • Niuzao at Niuzao Temple: Tank

Champions should choose the challenge they are best-equipped to deal with.

During this quest, the surroundings of all temples except the Temple of the Jade Serpent are phased, with almost all NPCs and mobs removed. As such, the Xuen and Niuzao dailies and the Temple of the Red Crane chain in the Krasarang Wilds storyline cannot be completed while this quest is in your quest log.

After speaking with the four celestials and completing one of the challenges, find Wrathion at Mason's Folly on the Veiled Stair at [73.3, 79.7] overlooking the Thunderfoot Fields far below, and not inside the Tavern in the Mists.

On complete:

Wrathion says: We have done it, hero! We have the blessings of the celestials, and we have completed their challenge.
Wrathion says: I know our next step. Meet me back atop Mason's folly - you'll be pleasantly surprised at what I have in store for you!

Blessings

Temple of the Jade Serpent

Wrathion stands at [51.4, 55.6] outside the main gate of the Jade Temple Grounds proper. Speak with him there:

Here we are - the ancient seat of pandaren wisdom.
Shall we begin?
Gossip Yu'lon awaits!

A cutscene begins as Wrathion and the player walk in to the Heart of Jade.

Wrathion says: The Jade Serpent is the incarnation of wisdom of Pandaria. Let's see what she has to say.
Wrathion says: Great Jade Serpent. Hear our plea.
Wrathion says: My champion and I seek the blessing of your wisdom.
Yu'lon says: Ah, the dragon-child and the hero. Together you will achieve great things.
Yu'lon says: Tell me, dragon-child. What is the nature of wisdom?
Wrathion says: To do what is right, no matter the cost. That is wisdom.
Yu'lon says: Spoken like a true child of the Aspects. Always seeking to change the world.
Yu'lon says: But true wisdom comes from KNOWING what is right. And sometimes DOING nothing at all.
Wrathion says: When is it ever wise not to act for the greater good?
Yu'lon says: To learn THAT is to learn true wisdom.
Yu'lon says: Come forward! I will give you my blessing.
Yu'lon says: My challenge, if you accept it, will test your cunning and footwork even in the midst of life-threatening danger.

Temple of the Red Crane

Meet Wrathion inside the temple at [40.4, 57.4] before heading downstairs to the basement.

Wrathion says: The Red Crane of Hope has inspired the citizens of Pandaria from the very dawn of history. I very much want to speak with him.
Wrathion runs down the right-hand set of stairs to the basement.
Wrathion says: Great Red Crane! Hear our plea.
Wrathion says: My champion and I seek your blessing of Hope.
Chi-Ji says: My my, the child of the Worldbreaker, proof that none are beyond redemption. I am honored by your visit.
Chi-Ji says: Tell me, Son of the Earth-Warder: What is the nature of hope?
Wrathion says: Hope is...a belief of a better tomorrow.
Chi-Ji says: You speak, but doubt your own words.
Wrathion kneels
Wrathion says: ...Great Crane. You have not seen what I have seen.
Chi-Ji says: You underestimate me.
Wrathion says: ...the fire that once burned the sky will return. It is inevitable. The Burning Legion WILL find Azeroth.
Wrathion says: Seas of blood, cities in ruins! Who are we - one divided world - to stand against a legion?
Wrathion says: You speak of hope. Believe me, the thinnest silver of belief that we might somehow survive the coming devastation is all that sustains me.
Chi-Ji says: Rise, son of Deathwing. I will give you my blessing, for you need it more than any I have ever met.
Wrathion stands
Chi-Ji says: I challenge you not to think of hope as a vague and unimaginable future.
Chi-Ji says: Live EVERY day with hope in your heart. In doing so, you CREATE the future you dream of.
Wrathion says: ... thank you, Great Crane.
Chi-Ji says: My challenge, should you accept it, tasks you with healing the most grievous of wounds.

Temple of the White Tiger

Wrathion stands just inside the main temple at [68.9, 44.6], across the way from Xuen.

Wrathion says: I am looking forward to this. The White Tiger is the embodiment of strength in Pandaria!
Wrathion says: Great White Tiger! Hear our plea.
Wrathion says: My champion and I seek the blessing of your strength.
Xuen says: Ah, the young black dragon graces my temple. The deeds of you and your champion are quickly becoming Pandaren legend.
Wrathion says: I take great pride in the company I keep.
Xuen says: Tell me, young prince: What is the nature of strength?
Wrathion says: The power to crush one's foe. That is strength.
Xuen says: You speak only in terms of one's enemies.
Wrathion says: Certainly, strength can benefit one's allies.
Xuen says: How so?
Wrathion says: ...by using it crush their enemies!
Xuen says: A black dragon, through and through. Very well, I will give you my blessing, but also some advice:
Xuen says: Strength used in the service of others is twice as powerful as strength spent on one's foes.
Xuen says: Now. My challenge, should you accept it, will test your ability to stand right in the face of danger and persevere.

Niuzao Temple

Niuzao awaits on the opposite side of the courtyard from his usual spot by the quest givers. Get close to Wrathion at [41.2, 60.1] at the base of the steps.

Wrathion says: Here we are, the home of Niuzao, the Black Ox. He is the patron spirit of Pandaren fortitude, the only celestial who chooses to live beyond the wall.
Wrathion says: Mighty Black Ox! Hear our plea.
Wrathion says: My champion and I seek the blessing of fortitude.
Niuzao says: So enters the dragon, and his mortal champion. You are welcome here.
Niuzao says: Tell me, Black Prince: What is the nature of fortitude?
Wrathion says: The strength to overcome any hardship! That is fortitude.
Niuzao says: You confuse strength with fortitude, young dragon. But power is worthless without spirit!
Niuzao says: I have seen humble slaves endure unimaginable torture. Only to rise up and overthrow their masters.
Niuzao says: And I have seen the mightiest of emperors laid low by the perseverance of the smallest of enemies.
Wrathion says: You mean to say - physical strength is developed without, but fortitude comes from within?
Niuzao says: Precisely!
Wrathion says: ...Sure, I knew that.
Niuzao says: Of course you did. We will put your understanding to the test.
Niuzao says: My challenge, if you accept it, will test your champion's ability to defend and protect while enduring terrible hardship.

Challenges

Caster/ranged challenge

Yu'lon says: Let the challenge begin! Hero, you must defeat the Black Prince in combat.
Wrathion says: Wait - that's absurd. I would annihilate my own champion!
Yu'lon says: You, my dark prince, will be blindfolded.
Wrathion says: ...interesting. But the outcome is unlikely to change.
Yu'lon says: We will demonstrate the limits of power without vision to guide it.
Wrathion says: Very well. I am sorry, champion - But I will not be the one learning a lesson today.
Wrathion mutters to himself as he ties the blindfold.
Wrathion says: A blind dragon. Ridiculous!
Yu'lon yells: Begin!
  • Yu'lon yells: The elements are undying! Make use of their time before they rise again!
  • Yu'lon yells: Use movement to your advantage. Do not allow the dragon-child to get close!
  • Yu'lon yells: Be aware of your surroundings!
  • Yu'lon yells: Do not allow the elements to engage you!
  • Yu'lon yells: Seek out your true enemy! Do not be fooled of his false images!
  • Wrathion says: The legendary power of the Titans is mine to command!
  • Wrathion says: Where did you go? Come back!
  • Wrathion says: Stand still, I am trying to kill you here!
  • Wrathion says: Ahhh... Hah!
  • Wrathion yells: Your lucky that I'm not those Green Dragons that can see with their eyes closed!
  • Wrathion yells: Your eyes fail you yet!
  • Wrathion yells: But can you find me again?
  • Wrathion yells: One final time!
  • Wrathion says: Well done.
Defeated
Yu'lon yells: That is enough!
Wrathion says: Just as I expected. Did you want to give it another go?
Yu'lon says: Champion, predict your foes movements and always stay a step ahead. Victory is within you.
Victory
Yu'lon yells: Very good - that is enough!
Wrathion says: PAH! A lopsided challenge.
Yu'lon says: Do you see? Power without vision causes only random chaos and destruction. Please, young prince, take this lesson to heart.
Wrathion says: I am please that our hero is still alive. Thank you for your blessing, Great Serpent.

Melee challenge

Xuen says: Let the challenge begin! Hero, you must defeat the Black Prince in close quarters combat.
Wrathion says: Wait - that's absurd. I would annihilate my own champion!
Xuen says: You, Wrathion, will be blindfolded.
Wrathion says: ...interesting. But the outcome is unlikely to change.
Xuen says: Black Prince. You are very strong, but what good is strength without the vision to guide it?
Wrathion says: Very well. I am sorry, champion - But I will not be the one learning a lesson today.
Wrathion mutters to himself as he ties the blindfold.
Wrathion says: A blind dragon. Ridiculous!
Xuen yells: Begin!
  • Xuen yells: Seek out your true enemy! Do not be fooled of his false images!
  • Xuen yells: The dragon is stronger than you, hero! Do not let him finish his attacks!
  • Xuen yells: Disarm him if you can! Use every advantage!
  • Xuen yells: Stay behind your foe! He cannot see you! Move quickly!
  • Xuen yells: Dodge his attacks! Use his strength against him!
  • Xuen yells: The elements will not die! Make use of your time before they rise again!
  • Wrathion says: The legendary power of the Titans is mine to command!
  • Wrathion says: Where did you go? Come back!
  • Wrathion says: Stand still, I am trying to kill you here!
  • Wrathion says: Ahhh... Hah!
  • Wrathion yells: Your lucky that I'm not those Green Dragons that can see with their eyes closed!
  • Wrathion yells: Your eyes fail you yet!
  • Wrathion yells: But can you find me again?
  • Wrathion yells: One final time!
  • Wrathion says: Well done.
Defeated
Xuen yells: That is enough!
Wrathion says: Just as I expected. Did you want to give it another go?
Xuen says: Champion, turn your foes strength and confidence against him. I believe in you.
Victory
Xuen yells: Very good - lay down your weapons!
Wrathion says: PAH! A lopsided challenge.
Xuen says: I hope now you understand limits of strength without vision. It is one thing to change the world, but quite another to do what is right.
Xuen says: Young prince, I hope you take this lesson to heart.
Wrathion says: I am pleased that our hero is still alive. Thank you for your blessing, Mighty Tiger.

Tank Challenge

Niuzao says: Let the challenge begin! Hero, you must defend the Black Prince while he faces his inner turmoil.
Wrathion says: I'm a black dragon. I won't need any help.
Niuzao says: Is that so? You are filled with doubts and fears, young Prince.
Niuzao says: Face your inner demons. Now is the time.
Wrathion says: What - wait - father!?
Vision of Deathwing yells: I shall tear this world apart!
Wrathion says: Please - don't make me do this.
Niuzao yells: Your champion will defend you. Begin!
Vision of Deathwing yells: Your efforts are insignificant!
  • Niuzao yells: The elements will not die! Make use of your time before they rise again!
  • Niuzao yells: Control the combat. Pay attention to ALL your foes.
  • Niuzao yells: Use the battlefield to regenerate yourself!
  • Niuzao yells: Protect the Black Prince! Distract his enemies!
  • Niuzao yells: Do not allow your foe to complete his attack!
  • Niuzao yells: You must sacrifice yourself to keep the Prince from falling!
  • Vision of Deathwing yells: Your tenacity is admirable, but pointless!
  • Vision of Deathwing yells: There's no shelter from my fury!
  • Vision of Deathwing yells: Your armor means nothing! Your faith - even less!
Failure
Wrathion yells: Enough! Make it stop!
Niuzao yells: So be it. The test is over.
Niuzao says: Remember: You are never defeated until you decide to remain so. Those with true fortitude always rise whenever they fall.
Niuzao says: Try again - I know you can defeat this challenge!
Victory
Niuzao yells: Well done! You have triumphant!
Wrathion says: Such... madness...
Niuzao says: You are stronger than your father, young prince.
Niuzao says: You have friends. Your champion did not allow you to fall. Take this lesson to heart.
Wrathion says: I understand. Thank you, Mighty Ox.

Healer Challenge

Chi-Ji says: Let the challenge begin! Hero, you must keep the Black Prince alive with your skills as a healer.

Chi-Ji says: You have not fully reconciled with your past. Now is the time.
Wrathion says: What - wait - father!?

  • Chi-Ji yells: The Vale of shadows has lifted!
  • Chi-Ji yells: Keep move! Your foe is dangerous, but you are smarter!
  • Chi-Ji yells: Use the blood of the world to regenerate yourself. You can do this!
  • Chi-Ji yells: The elements are undying! Make use of their time before they rise again!
  • Chi-Ji yells: Do not fear his traps, champion! Your healing is more powerful than his magic!
  • Vision of Deathwing yells: Your tenacity is admirable, but pointless!
  • Vision of Deathwing yells: There's no shelter from my fury!
  • Vision of Deathwing yells: Your armor means nothing! Your faith - even less!
Failure

Wrathion says: I understand. Thank you, Great Crane.
