An aside on irony within the lore: The Klaxxi oppose the Empress because she is possessed by the Sha of Fear. The Klaxxi, and the Mantid as a whole, traditionally served an Old God. That Old God was slain, and his final breath created the Sha from his essence. So the Klaxxi oppose the Empress because she is possessed by an aspect of the same Old God they claim to serve.


By a remanant, a shadow, of the Old God they claim to serve. I guess for the Klaxxi, the Sha are not really a part of the Old God. And they are right, to a point - the Sha of Fear is but one of seven, and it's not even sure wether all seven Sha combined are a true representation of Y'shaarj.

Maybe we should compare notes once again about this sha claw that's running around.

So far, we know we got a claw from the Sha of Anger, that has been given to the Shado-Pan. I haven't seen anything that implies thee Shado-Pan lost it to the Korune.

During the Horde questline, we faced the Korune leader, who had the ability to summon a Sha claw the he used as some kind of fist-like weapon and a focus for his Sha magic.

Two days later, when we were summoned to the Shrine of two Moons, Garrosh had a Sha claw that may or may not be the one from Shan Kien, the Korune leader. This is the very day when sha-touched grunt went out of whack (I still need to post that event, BTW).

That's all I experienced myself so far - nothing to imply the Claw is the one from the Sha of Anger.

EDIT: And BAM: Sha-Touched Claw from the Alliance questline. By the looks of it, the mogu can transform their flesh into Sha-stuff. That might explain why there are so many Claws around...
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Based on the effect of dailies on players, my bet is the Sha of Apathy. ;)

I actually thought they opposed her because she had gone nuts and was apparently intent on wiping out their natural cycle so she could maintain power: the fact that she was possessed by a sha just appealed to our own ends.

^My take on it as well. They oppose her because she does stuff she isn't supposed to - and the sha infestations are not something they are happy with (as its corrputing their land), but not the reason they oppose the empress or called the Paragons.

But her irrational actions are caused by the Sha of Fear's influence.

this is what i had thought too

it was the interruption of the normal cycles that they had opposed, not the sha itself, we were just happy to help due to the sha

Turns out the lore quests (shieldwall/domination) are flagged depending on how much rep you have. Not on how many days you've been doing the dailies.

The lore quests become available depending on how much rep you have, that's it.

And they obviously have a sequential order cuz they're telling a story that will prolly lead to garrosh eventual downfall

Like I said, I didn't fill in the latest chapter yet, so time to hit the keyboard!

As usual,
*** SPOILER ALERT AHOY ***


Chapter 6: A Gathering Storm (Day 10) : Baine has spent little time enjoying the vistas of Pandaria - a single day has passed since Vol'jin's letter that Baine has already sent word that he required aid from the cahmpions of the Horde. Requesting specifically someone capable in combat, as well as discretion.

Nevertheless, the arrival at the Shrine of Two Moons was... surprising, to say the least. The sight of grayish grunts, clearly affected by the sha brought frightening memories of the Jade Forest to mind. But the sight of Garrosh, Lor'themar and young Baine debating arounda Sha claw was even more chilling. Where did it come from? Was this the Sha of Anger's claw?

Baine's request was clear - Garrosh had experiments made with the power we found in Kun-lai, most probably the claw. He had hoped it would strenghten the troops. The grunts had grown randomly violent as a result. Our task, then was to interrogate the grunt, and contain them if necessary.

The grunts had indeed gone berserk, producing Sha claws and the very same magic we saw the mogu wield. Which eventually begged the question - were the Korune truly in control of the power they wielded? Which is basically the question Lor'themar asked - the sha had empowered the mogu, yes. "But their empire fell. Perhaps to the sha, perhaps to the pandaren, or perhaps... to their own pride." Garrosh did not take well to the veiled critic, but refrained from going further than reprimand the Lord Regent. For now.



*** END OF SPOILERS ***
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.
