The Shado-Pan Assault are the elite Shado-Pan forces sent to kill Lei Shen, The Thunder King, once and for all. Lord Taran Zhu leads the planning of the attack from a cave underneath the Conqueror's Terrace. The main way of gaining reputation with the assault is killing bosses in the Throne of Thunder raid. This gives access to impressive Valor reward items depending on the level of reputation.

Background

These valorous Shado-Pan venture into the Throne of Thunder to vanquish the evil found within, and exact justice for the centuries of slavery they endured under the Thunder King's reign.

Reputation

Standing with the faction is primarily gained by killing mobs in the Throne of Thunder raid instance. Bosses award reputation once each week. So, if a player kills a boss in Raid Finder mode, then subsequently kills it in normal or heroic mode during the same week, the player's character gains reputation only for the first kill.

Trash mobs award reputation up to 2,999/3,000 neutral. They can be farmed by killing all of the trash before Jin'rokh the Breaker, then all members of the raid exit the instance via the instance line and let the raid leader reset the instance. Starting from 0/3,000, four or five runs will cap reputation gained in this manner.

Outside of the raid, there are several one-time quests that award a little reputation. Additionally, the once-weekly quest B [90WG5] Champions of the Thunder King will award 300 reputation. There are  [Shado-Pan Assault Insignia] worth 100 reputation possibly found inside the  [Arcane Trove] and  [Sunreaver Bounty] goody bags awarded for completing boss-killing daily quests on the Isle of Thunder. Insignia can possibly be found inside the Lei Shen's Burial Troves at the end of the Troves of the Thunder King single-player loot-grabbing scenario.

Rewards

In patch 5.4, only Shado-Pan Assault quartermasters (QM) exchange rewards for Valor Points. Former Valor QMs such as Commander Oxheart now only exchange rewards for Justice Points. Rewards that previously required Honored and Revered reputation are available at Friendly reputation. Shoulder gear that was available at Exalted still requires Exalted, and the neck items are still available at Neutral.

Note: patch 5.4 was released without including the Shado-Pan Assault faction on the Character Reputation Pane. The only way to determine reputation status with the Shado-Pan Assault is to visit a Shado-Pan quartermaster, and see which items are available on the dialog.
