Not much is known about Golden Lotus, but we do know that they intend to deal with the Mogu threat once and for all.
Gaining Reputation with Golden Lotus
To begin questing with Golden Lotus
, you'll need to prove yourself to the Pandaren at the Temple of the White Tiger in Kun-Lai Summit
. You'll be able to fly into Vale of Eternal Blossoms
otherwise, but many areas will be phased. The gates to the Vale have not been open in many years, so you will have to defeat three trials, the last one being a shadowy version of a faction leader.
As you gain reputation with Golden Lotus
, more quest hubs will unlock with 4-5 quests each. You'll first start out at the Golden Pagoda
hub with sending you to The Golden Stair
at Friendly, and go up from there. Each hub has several sets of quests and additional side quests at Revered
-The Golden Stair
: Eliminating the Shao-Tian Mogu by the Vale's north gate.
: Saving the town from sprites and fires, as well as gathering resources.
-Ruins of Guo-Lai
: Clearing the ruins of Mogu statues and spiderwebs.Setting Sun -Garrison
: Dealing with the Mantid threat.
: Dive into the water to restore artifacts, as well as kill enemies on the riverbanks.
These quests were recently nerfed to give 100 reputation. The final daily quest of the day will be to kill an elite that also rewards Treasures of the Vale
. Killing all the various elites awards One Many Army
. All Golden Lotus
and The August Celestials
daily quests now reward 2 Lesser Charm of Good Fortune
, which eventually combine into Elder Charm of Good Fortune
. This allows you to have extra loot in your LFR bags.
There's also a one-time quest series that progresses further as your reputation increases:
, The Secrets of Guo-Lai
has you discover more of the Guo-Lai Halls with He Softfoot
, and rewards you with an ilvl 440 ring.
, there is a quest chain to find several artifacts of power, belonging to the "Thunder King," before the Mogu do. The reward is an ilvl 463 chest (Example: Bonded Plate of the Golden Lotus
), from Battle Axe of the Thunder King
Upon hitting Exalted
, you'll face off with Zhao-Jin the Bloodletter
. First, you'll have to kill 100 Mogu in The Might of Three
, getting aid from the Celestials in the form of buffs: Wrath of the Jade Serpent
, Fury of the White Tiger
, Strength of the Black Ox
. Afterwards, it's time to eliminate Zhao-Jin the Bloodletter
in The Final Power
. This is a pretty fun fight where you'll throw a spear at him for 500k damage and get a movement and jump buff from the last Celestial: Wings of Hope
. The best part is that completing this quest will give you an epic necklace, like Burning Necklace of the Golden Lotus
You'll also complete Eternally in the Vale
at this point.
