The trial of Chi-Ji is a test of hope. Uncertain of the future of his people, Emperor Shaohao sought out the great Red Crane. The Great Crane challenged Shaohao to find the hope within himself, and cast off his uncertainty. Once the Sha of Doubt was vanquished, the Emperor became a beacon of hope for his people. To pass the trial of the Crane, warriors must believe in hope, even in the darkest of days.
The trial of Yu'lon is a test of wisdom and faith. With omens of a bleak future floating through his mind, Emperor Shaohao climbed to the summit of Mount Neverest to seek the council of the Jade Serpent. Yu'lon urged Shaohao to cast off the dark emotions that plagued him, and through his trials, Emperor Shaohao would become one with the land. To pass the trial of the Serpent, warriors must be wise in their choices.
The trial of Niuzao is a test of bravery and fortitude. When Emperor Shaohao was overcome with fear, the Black Ox counseled him to face his fears directly. After a protracted battle with the Sha of Fear, the Emperor emerged victorious. To pass the trial of the Ox, warriors must be resolute in the face of overwhelming danger.
The trial of Xuen is simultaneously a test of strength and a test of restraint. When Xuen gave Emperor Shaohao a 10-foot-pole and asked him to strike one of Xuen's warriors, the Emperor could not land a blow. For without restraint, anger and hatred run wild. To pass the trial of the Tiger, warriors must harness their power, while burying their thoughts of violence.
So, You have to do this all in order to get the legendary cloak?
I know is most likely to get down voted, but the RNG on these is annoying. I have did the celestials two weeks in a row on 4 characters and have gotten squat. The amount of money I received in the box wasn't even close to covering my repair bill. Oh did I mention that used my mogo runes of fate also?
If you collect Secrets of the Empire for the last 6 bosses of ToT and first 8 bosses of SoO does that mean you cannot collect any Titan Runestone. What I mean is if I ran normal, flex, and lfr SoO this week and normal and lfr ToT does that mean I cannot run lfr/flex again to collect my Titan Runestone? Since technically I didn't collect them this week.
Sorry to bother, but you forgot to write down the 2nd quest in chapter IV that asks you to slay Lei Shen (Heart of the Thunder King). I just killed him for my last runestone and was soooo excited never to do ToT again and ... FACEPALM!
Fist weps are really looking good :D
There is an error in Chapter II under the Horde tab:
It's also not fun to go through the quest chain for a reward you'll never get to use--which is where the people playing catch up are at.
Nice guide, I never realised it took so long before reading this!I thought that with being Exalted and spending weeks farming Valor I was nearly there... but nope!
31-12-2013Guide is perfect. I'm doing this now for the first time and am at Chapter two, farming Valor points... In week two now so soon capping 2.000 Valor. Already farmed exhalted rep and in the meantime I'm questing in Pandaria to cross over Trillium Ores every once in a While. At my server (Stormreaver) one trillium bar costs around 70 cold (which takes 2 black trillium and 2 white trillium ores to make). Since you need 40 in total you can buy your way in for 2100 gold... NOWAIDUDE!Secrets of the empireWeek 1: 6Week 2: 5Week 3: 6
great quest layout and details thanks soo much
Why does Chapter V in the guide come before Chapter I ? I'm new to this questline and I'm getting confused on where to start......
aww a catch up mechanism, how cute! Slack off, why even try to excel... you can just do everything twice as easy if you wait. I was SO eager for ffxiv, but theyre doing the same crap. Thanks blizzard.. you roasted the genre. Worst part is, its so bad even you guys agree >.<To any purists out there who have been practically convulsing due to withdrawals over 5+ years w/out a real mmorpg... the name Brad McQuaid probably means quite a bit to you. He's back. Read it and weep ^^https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1588672538/pantheon-rise-of-the-fallen
