WoW Mogu'shan Vaults Entrance & Location

The Mogu'shan Vaults was built during the Mogu Thunder King's rise to power to contain and protect a mysterious artifact.[2] Previously a titan facility, the mogu converted the surrounding structure into a sort of shrine dedicated to the mogu empire. The complex houses many of the empire’s lost artifacts and is the resting place of the spirits of old mogu kings. The Engine of Nalak'sha, a powerful titan artifact used by the Thunder King, was once housed there,[3] but it is unknown if it is still hidden inside the vaults or has been moved or destroyed.

Mogu'shan Vaults is one of the three raids that opened with the release of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria. This six-boss raid invites adventurers to explore the hidden secrets of the elusive Mogu empire, one of the new indigenous Pandarian races.[1]

The entrance to the Vaults is found in northeast Kun-Lai Summit, accessed on Mogu'shan Terrace, overlooking the Zouchin Province far below.

Normal mode opened on October 2, 2012. First part of Raid Finder and heroic difficulties opened on October 9, and second part of Raid Finder opened on October 16.[2] Raid Finder difficulty requires an average item level of 460.

Lorewalker Cho accompanies the raid through the vaults, providing exposition on the mobs and bosses. After defeating a group of stone Quilen, the Stone Guard are fought. This awakens the spirit ofFeng the Accursed, who animates several stone statues of Mogu before joining the fight himself. After slaying him, a Zandalari strike force led by Gara'jal the Spiritbinder breaks into the vault.

Free of the troll threat, the raid delves further into the vaults, where Cho presses a button in a hall of deceased rulers, animating the vengeful Spirit Kings. Deeper inside, players discoverTitan technology and ghosts of Mogu'shan Wardens. The technology is protected by Elegon the celestial cloud serpent. After more lore is revealed, the raid must face Lei Shen's giant construct machine for building his armies: The Will of the Emperor. After destroying the army of terracotta warriors, the machine is destroyed.


  • Will of the Emperor – The core chamber of the vaults houses an army of stone soldiers who have been motionless for centuries. They are row upon row of warriors, statues armed for a battle that never began. What treasures do they guard? And what is their tie to the titanic power buried with them here in the shadows?
  • The Stone Guard – The first line of defense against those daring to enter the vaults is a stolid row of enchanted, bestial statues. Hard as granite and ceaseless in their vigil, the sentries of the Stone Guard present an insurmountable wall of flame, fangs, and claws.
  • Gara'jal the Spiritbinder – Leader of the Zandalar trolls' assault on the vaults, Gara'jal is determined to crack open this trove of ancient mystery and bring back whatever arcane power and knowledge he can find. Gifted with dark talents and surrounded by a loyal cadre of Zandalar mystics, he has broken through the outer walls and will not rest until the vaults belong to him.
  • The Spirit Kings – Ancient records tell of these legendary rulers, powerful mogu who carved an empire from the very rock of Pandaria. Their names still cause the land to tremble: Zian of the Endless Shadow, Meng the Demented, Qiang the Merciless, and Subetai the Swift. Some say their spirits lurk in the vaults, lost in ghostly memories of battle and glory.
  • Feng the Accursed – Long ago, Feng Shri was the Mogu'shan Vaults' caretaker, tasked with preserving the treasures kept within these shadowy halls. After years of faithful service, he was caught stealing from the shelves (although some say he was framed by a jealous underling) and the mogu ruler punished him with a fatal curse. The doomed spirit of Feng Shri has wandered the vaults ever since, communing with the shades of past mogu heroes and warlords.
  • Elegon – Dedicated to the advancement of their empire, the mogu salvaged and repurposed titan technology to generate untold power in the depths of this ancient complex. Why these energies have been focused into the cold will of a celestial dragon is a mystery that lies at the very heart of the vaults.
