Now that the whole island is unlocked, we can visit all the areas, kill all the rare bosses, meet Nalak and especially perform all the HFs. A brief overview of the Isle of Thunder as we will all know it from now on.

Scenario

When you go to the final phase, you complete the last single player scenario on the island, The Fall of Shan Bu. Here is the preview on the Horde side even if the scenario is very similar on the Alliance side.



  • Phase 1 : Bloody cross. Unite with allied troops to attack the Bloodstained Crossroads.

We arrive in the Forges of Thunder where we find Scout Captain Elsia, Lor'themar Theron and Archmage Aethas Sunreaver.

After a little discussion, they launch the assault. The door opens and we find the Alliance in the courtyard (Vereesa Windrunner and Lady Jaina Proudmoore), in the company of Pandaren (Taran Zhu, Taoshi and Yalia Sage Whisper) facing Shan Bu. The latter behaves like any self-respecting villain: he taunts us, certain of his power. Then Zandalari attack, we must kill them all (14) for the objective of this phase. Each warlord orders his troops to ignore the other faction:

  • Lor'themar Theron: one thing at a time, my friends. The Zandalari first!
  • Lady Jaina Proudmoore: ignore the Horde, focus on the Zandalari guarding the entrance!

  • Phase 2 : destroy the gate guards. Defeat the guardians of the palace gate to unlock the doors.

As soon as the Zandalari are killed, the large statues to the right and left of the door come to life (see them above?). They place a damage zone on the ground that you have to move and like all mogu statues, they trample the ground around them and hit the ground in front (thunderous knock).



  • Phase 3 : the threshold of Lei Shen. Defeat the Mogu and Zandalari defenders of Shan Bu.

We continue the battle in the next room where we find Shan Bu finishing the ritual of invoking the dragon Nalak. He's almost finished and sends his last armed forces to hold us back (8 mogu and Zandalari), to be killed as the objective of the stage. It is of course necessary to avoid walking in lightning, it hurts! If needed, Yalia creates a healing light zone, to be used without moderation.

  • Final phase : defeat Shan Bu. Help Taran Zhu and Yalia to overthrow Shan Bu.

The dragon is freed (our mission is therefore a failure in itself) and flies off to join the Emperor while Shan Bu attacks us. This boss uses various rather painful techniques:

  • Attract the shadows where it attracts 6 shadow balls that it sends back just after: avoid being on the way back
  • Shadow surge, a shadow zone (materialized by a purple zone) targeted at a player or an NPC, so you have to get out before the surge
  • onyx grifforage, small dragons that he summons in pairs from time to time

Finally, areas of thunder appear randomly in the area. If needed, Yalia is always around and will be happy to heal you!

Once the boss is dead, things go wrong between the two leaders of the Alliance and the Horde! Fortunately, there is Taran Zhu who steps in with all Pandaren wisdom.

Confrontation Jaina/Lor'themar

  • Taoshi : Lord Zhu! The Alliance ... the Horde ... It's going to be chaos here!
  • Taran Zhu : real kids. Taoshi, give me my gun.
  • Taoshi : my weapon ! You, with me. I want you to see this.
  • Jaina : Deliver the Archmage to us and you might be able to survive, Lor'themar.
  • Lor'themar : Proudmoore! You are going to free my people held in the Violet Hold, or I will kill you myself!
  • Jaina : they are prisoners of war. They organized an attack on Darnassus from MY town ...
  • Lor'themar : The Sunreavers were NOT aware of Garrosh's raid on Darnassus!
  • Taran Zhu : ENOUGH !! No more bloodshed today. I now understand why your Horde and Alliance keep fighting. Any reprisal is an act of aggression, and any act of aggression leads to immediate reprisals.
  • Lor'themar : I must protect the sovereignty of my people
  • Taran Zhu : SILENCE! YOU have to break this cycle. It is here and NOW that it must end when you, Lord Regent, and you, Lady Proudmoore, let go. And that you will leave.

Lor'themar narrows his eyes. Jaina takes a deep breath



  • Lor'themar : Foresters! Lower your guns.
  • Elsia : My lord !
  • Jaina : very good. We are withdrawing.
  • Coursevent : they killed my husband!
  • Jaina : that will not make him come back. But know this, blood elf: no peace will be possible while Hellscream is at the head of the Horde.
  • Lor'themar : this is precisely why I want to preserve our strengths today.

Jaina softens

  • Lor'themar : but dame
  • Jaina: Lord
  • Lor'themar : gather the wounded. We return to the port.
  • Jaina : that everyone returns to the camp. We're done here.
  • Taoshi : Lord Zhu!
  • Taran Zhu : this ceasefire may not last, but remember that day.
  • Taoshi : we must return to the monastery.
  • Taran Zhu : the monstrosity of Shan Bu is still at the feet of the palace. It must be stopped before it wreaks havoc on Pandaria.
  • Taoshi : Yalia, lead Lord Zhu to safety. You'll need to take charge of Nalak, the Storm Lord. You will have to go with a small army but after what I saw today I have faith in you. It has been an honor to fight alongside you. Thank you.

Weekly quests

In addition to the weekly quest the Champions of the Thunder King (horde / alliance) which I mentioned in the dedicated article, we obtain a new weekly quest: pieces of chamberlain. We have the head of the poor chamberlain broken but we have to find the other four ends:

  • the staff: Za'tual
  • shoulders: combe d'Ihgaluk
  • the hair: animal enclosure and the Conquerors' terrace
  • the torso: Court of Bones

As you can see, all these elements are dispatched across the island, sometimes at a height, which complicates the quest on a first come, first served basis. Consider using Zandalari potions or the Saurok transformation when possible. Once all the elements have been found, you must return the quest near the broken statue of Chambellan, in a cave under the Cour des Bones, the entrance to which is in 33.6, 63.1.

This quest rewards a Shan'ze Ritual Stone.

 

The continuation very quickly with the various achievements to be carried out on the island!
