- The Black Prince (Exalted)
You are a superb representative of your people, <race>. But I need someone special. I have big plans. And to enact them I will need a champion to carry my flame to the four corners of the world.
Are you the one?
Prove it to me on the Isle of Thunder! Lay waste to any mogu, Zandalari, or saurok that you find. Impress me!
How goes the battle on the island?
My Shado-Pan associates have spoken highly of your deeds. You have earned quite the name for yourself here in Pandaria!
It is settled. When the materials are ready, you will be my champion. You will be my instrument, my standard-bearer, my voice of change across this world.
We will do marvelous things together.

On accept of both and this quest, Wrathion and Anduin Wrynn have a short conversation:
- Wrathion says: The Thunder King! What a magnificent individual.
- Wrathion says: Could you imagine what his empire would be like today if it had not been overthrown and hidden by the pandaren?
- Anduin Wrynn says: I couldn't imagine a cruler tyrant. He enslaved this entire continent.
- Wrathion says: Benevolence is a luxury for the strong, young prince. No great empire was ever built with kindness.
- Anduin Wrynn says: ...I'm not so sure about that. But I can tell you: no great empire has ever stood the test of time by crushing its own citizens.
- Anduin Wrynn says: Remember, the mogu were overthrown! THAT should be the lesson of the Thunder King. It's your move, by the way.
- Wrathion says: I worry you may be too soft to wear your kingdom's crown, Prince Anduin. You would do well to learn some of your father's hardness.
- Anduin Wrynn says: Are you lecturing me? You're what - two years old?
- Wrathion says: Two in DRAGON years. It is your move.
- Anduin Wrynn says: Hmmm.
