by on September 25, 2012

The Shado’pan Monastery is Mists Of Pandaria’s tribute to the martial arts training monasteries in, well, every martial arts movie ever.

Finally, you’ll fight the leader of the monastery, Taran Zhu, who has become corrupted by the Sha of Hatred. Our quick-read strategies give you exactly what you need to conquer the Shado’pan Monastery: no big walls of text, just the facts, formatted for easy copy-paste to your party chat!
