Valley of the Four Winds is a tranquil plain of lush farmland, bordered by dense mysterious jungles along the south and impassible mountains to the north. The valley is considered the "breadbasket" of Pandaria, but the year’s harvest is in jeopardy and a terrible malaise has overcome the pandaren that live along the coast. The valley is also the home of the legendary Stormstout Brewery, where Chen Stormstout and his niece Li Li hope to journey to discover the whereabouts of their long-lost ancestors.
In the golden and green fields of the Valley of the Four Winds, Pandaria sees to the hunger and thirst of its people. Sizeable corn and lotus crops are watered by ingenious agricultural advances and cared for by the Tillers, Pandaren farmers who feed a growing empire. Farms, ranches and marketplaces dot a land of rolling plains and vine-covered boughs.
It is here that Brewmaster arrives after a life spent traveling, first on the Wandering Isle and then throughout Kalimdor. Alongside Alliance and Horde explorers, he'll discover the ancestral home of the Stormstout for the first time, and strive to live up to his family's name and legacy of peerless brewing. But not all is idyllic within the Valley. The ravenous appetites of long-toothed virmen and simian hozen endanger crops and farmers alike... and threaten the entire continent with starvation. If you can stop these animalistic pillagers, you’ll be able to grab a plow and a shovel and cultivate Pandaria's fallow farmlands once again. Meanwhile, as farmers worry over their harvests and the hunger in their bellies, the great wall built to keep the violent mantid race out of the Valley begins to show its first cracks...
The valley is accessed via a bridge from Forest Heart in the western side of central Jade Forest. From there, adventurers can travel south down Zhu's Descent to reach Krasarang Wilds, or cross the Thunderfoot Fields to reach the Grassy Cline and the start of the Veiled Stair to Kun-Lai Summit.
Maps and subregions
Halfhill is the farmer's market here, which is the social hub of the Valley of the Four Winds. Every day farmers will come to the market with different problems, providing daily quests with the Tillers:
- You will help fix up his overgrown farm, which will show your progression with the faction.
- You can clear plots of land and plant things like cooking ingredients, herbalism nodes, gifts for the different NPCs to build your reputation. You then come back the next day to harvest what has grown.
You will be able to decorate the farm as you gain reputation. For example, you can add some pigs and slop, some other animals, and grow an apple orchard.
