5.3 Legendary Quests
sends you to talk to Wrathion after the defeat of the Thunder King.
The Thunder King is dead, and his instruments of oppression are being picked over by the Alliance and Horde for their own ends.
We come now to the climax of the pandaren campaign. Hellscream's machinations have brought the Alliance down on his head - but even more importantly, he's fractured the unity of the Horde. As the Pandaren say: "The Wok is Hot." Something is about to give, and all of our work comes down to this.
I need time to plan. See me as soon as your faction is ready to make its move!
Segen der Erhabenen
: You must defeat one of the four celestials--each Celestial's challenge is designed for a specific spec/role.
I would like to grant you my full array of draconic power, but sadly, it would tear your mortal frame apart. Still, it's not hopeless - I believe I can create a powerful vessel that you can use.
To craft it, I will need the blessings of the four August Celestials in Pandaria. Travel with me to the four temples and we will speak to each. To be worthy of their gifts, you must defeat one of their challenges.
They will not be easy - chose the one challenge best suited to your equipment and skills!
Umhang der Tugend
: When you return to Wrathion, you will pick one of the following capes as a reward:
We have what we need. I can create an item that will harness the power of the celestials and, with a little work, may also be able to contain some of my own.
Meet me atop Mason's Folly, east of the Tavern in the Mists in the Veiled Stair, where we've met before. You will be delighted with the results.
The follow-up quest,
, sets things up for the Siege of Orgrimmar.

Audio files datamined the first day of the 5.3 PTR covered the four celestial challenges. We've also transcribed the relevant parts below and pieced together the dialogue interactions.
Great Red Crane, hear our plea. My champion and I seek your blessing of hope.
My my, the child of the Worldbreaker, proof that none are beyond redemption. I am honored by your visit. Tell me, son of the Earth-Warder, what is the nature of hope?
Hope is…it is, a belief in a better tomorrow.
You speak, but doubt your own words. You underestimate me.
Great Crane, you have not seen what I have seen. The fires that burn the skies will return. It is inevitable--the Burning Legion will find Azeroth. Seas of blood, cities in ruins. Who are we? One divided world to stand against a legion. You speak of hope--believe me, the thinnest sliver of hope that we might somehow survive the devastation is all that sustains me.
Rise, son of Deathwing, I will give you my blessing, for you need it more than any I have ever met. I challenge you not to think of hope as a vague and unimaginable future. Live every day with hope in your heart--in doing so, you create the future you dream of. My challenge, if you accept it, tasks you with healing the most grievous of wounds.
Let the challenge begin! Hero, you must keep the Black Prince alive with your skills as a healer.
Heal the prince, but do not forget to keep yourself alive. Do not miss any opportunity to heal the Black Prince! The Veil of Shadows has listed! Keep moving, your foe is dangerous but you are smarter. Use the Blood of the World to regenerate yourself--you can do this. The elements are undying--make use of your time, before they rise again. Do not fear his traps, Champion, your healing is more powerful than his magic.
Very good. You have done it! Do not despair young prince. You are not your father. More importantly, your champion would not let you fall. Do you see? With the support of friends, nothing is impossible.
Mighty black ox! Hear our plea! My champion and I seek your blessing of fortitude.
So enters the dragon and his mortal champion. You are welcome here. Tell me, black prince, what is the nature of fortitude?
The strength to overcome any hardship, this is fortitude.
You confuse strength with fortitude, young dragon, but power is worthless without spirit. I have seen humble slaves endure unimaginable torture, only to rise up and throw their masters. And I have seen the mightiest of emperors laid low by the perseverance of the smallest of enemies. My challenge, if you accept it, will test your champion's ability to protect while enduring terrible hardship.
Let the challenge begin! Hero, you must defend the Black Prince while he faces his inner turmoil.
You are filled with doubts and fears young prince. Face your inner demons. Now is the time. Your champion will defend you, begin!
The elements will not die! Make use of your time before they rise again. Control the combat, pay attention to all your foes. Use the battlefield to regenerate yourself. Protect the Black Prince, distract his enemies. Do not allow your foe to complete his attack. You must sacrifice yourself to keep the prince from falling.
So be it, the test is over. Remember, you are never defeated until you decide to remain so. Those with true fortitude always rise when they fall. Try again, I know you can defeat this challenge.
Well done. You have triumphed! You are stronger than your father, young prince. You have friends. Your champion did not allow you to fall. Take this lesson to heart.
Great White Tiger, hear our plea. My champion and I seek the blessing of your strength.
Ah, the young black dragon graces my temple. The deeds of you and your champion are quickly becoming Pandaren legend. Tell me young prince, what is the nature of strength?
I take great pride in the company I keep. The power to crush ones foes, that is strength.
You speak only in terms of one enemies. How so?
Certainly, strength can benefit one's allies--by using it to crush enemies.
A black dragon through and through! Very well. I will give you my blessing, but also some advice: strength used in the service of others is twice as powerful as strength spent on our foes. Now, my challenge, should you accept it, will test your ability to stand right in the face of danger and persevere.
Let the challenge begin! Hero, you must defeat the Black Prince in close-quarters combat. You, Wrathion, will be blindfolded. Black Prince, you are very strong. But what good is strength without the vision to guide it? Begin!
Seek out your true enemy. Do not be fooled by his false images. The dragon is stronger than you hero, do not let him finish his attacks! Disarm him if you can. Use every advantage. Stay behind your foe, he cannot see you. Move quickly. Dodge his attacks, use his strength against him. The elements will not die--make use of your time before they rise again.
Very good! Lay down your weapons. I hope now you understand the limits of strength without vision. It is one thing to change the world, but quite another to do what is right. Young prince, I hope you take this lesson to heart.
Great Jade Serpent, hear our plea. My champion and I seek the blessing of your wisdom.
Ah, the dragon child and the hero. Together you will achieve great things. Tell me dragon child, what is the nature of wisdom?
To do what is right, no matter the cost. That is wisdom.
Spoken like a true child of the aspects--always seeking to change the world. But true wisdom comes from knowing what is right, and sometimes doing nothing at all.
When is it ever wise not to act for the greater good?
To learn that, is to learn true wisdom. Come forward, I will give you my blessing. My challenge, if you accept it, will test your cunning and footwork in the midst of life-threatening danger.
Let the challenge begin! Hero, you must defeat the Black Prince in combat. You my dark prince, will be blindfolded. We will demonstrate the limits of power without vision to guide it! Begin.
The elements are undying. Make use of your time before they rise again. Use movement to your advantage--do not allow the dragon child to get close. Beware of your surroundings. Do not allow the elements to engage you. Seek out your true enemy, do not be fooled by his false images.
Wrathion, in combat:
The legendary power of the Titans is mind to command! Stand still, I'm trying to kill you here? Where did you go? Oh, come back. Aha! You're lucky I'm not one of those green dragons that can see with their eyes closed. Your eyes fail you yet, but can you find me again.
Very good. That is enough. Do you see, power without vision causes only random chaos and destruction. Please, young prince, take this lesson to heart.
Welcome back, Champion. Excellent work with the Celestials. Can you believe how chatty they were? I just wanted them to hand us our reward, but they were just talk, talk, talk. I'm sorry, where were we?
Ah yes! I have something for you. The very spirits of Pandaria supported us in our grand crusade. Behold, the strength of the White Tiger, the wisdom of the Jade Serpent, the fortitude of the Black Ox, and from the Red Crane, a shining beacon of hope for a better world. Our world.
My work is not quite finished. This cloak will grant you the power of the celestials. Very soon, we will be able to augment your cloak with my own formidable draconic power. Continue to aid your allies in the war effort.
