Pandaria is a continent on Azeroth. It is for players on the Alliance and Horde, level 85-90. It contains about seven zones, plus a non-combat zone known as the Veiled Stair. It is located in southern Azeroth in the Great Sea. Pandaria is unlocked when you purchase a copy of the Mists of Pandaria expansion. To get there, you have to be at least level 85.


The Jade ForestEdit

The Jade Forest was a forest in Pandaria, which was the first character zone in the Mists of Pandaria storyline.

Characters later continue to the Valley of Four Winds, and from there decide to stay there or go to Krasrang Wilds. It also contained many battles and events. Its most famous spot was the Temple of the Jade Serpent, where a skirmish took place, consisting of five Alliance and Horde members against the minions of the Sha of Doubt. 

Temple of the Jade SerpentEdit

The Temple of the Jade Serpent was a temple dedicated to the Jade Serpent, Yu'lon. A skirmish was held there, by which five elite Alliance and five elite Horde members had invaded the temple, trying to reclaim it from the grasp of the Sha of Doubt.


Several thousand years ago, Pandaria was originally ruled by the mogu and their allies, the Zandalari trolls. Eventually, Pandaren slaves trained in the ways of fist fighting and became the first ever monks. They rose up against the mogu and defeated them, claiming Pandaria for themselves.

Around 10,000 years ago, during the War of the Ancients, the last Pandaren emperor, Emperor Shaohao, sacrificed himself in order to become one with Pandaria and separate it from the rest of Kalimdor so it could be safe from the Burning Legion. Pandaria was then shrouded in mists for 10,000 years until the defeat of Deathwing, after which the mists mysteriously fell. Alliance and Horde forces battled across the continent, creating chaos and unleashing sha. Eventually, they were taught the error of their ways by Taran Zhu and the Shado-Pan, and defeated the chaotic forces of Pandaria.

Certain parts of Pandaria, including the Peak of Serenity in Kun-Lai Summit and the Terrace of Endless Springs in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, were attacked by the Burning Legion in the Legion's third invasion of Azeroth.
