Dungeon Journal

Niuzao Temple extends across two fortified islands far beyond a towering wall called the Serpent's Spine. For years, tenacious pandaren defenders have protected the narrow bridges connecting the isles, staving off any would-be invaders. Yet recently, the mantid created their own bridge--a massive tree root--and seized one of the islands by surprise. Now, these brutal insectoids are poised to assault Niuzao's remaining guardians.


Niuzao's precious' temple is under siege! Help him take it back! You'll go up a big ramp up to the top of the temple, but on the way you encounter Vizier Jin'bak; an alchemist. Kill him to continue moving forward. You reach to the top and spot Shado-Pan soldiers. They have names: Yang Ironclaw, Li Chu and Lo Chu. They're outnumber but glad you arrived to give a taste back at the Mantid. Commander Vo'jak commands the battalion below and must be clear to gain access farther. You enter the camping site and see swarms of them. General Pa'valak commands this part of the swarm and must be dealt with to finish off the siege. He didn't go down without a fight. Finally, you reach the bridge and Wing Leader Ner'onok awaits you at the end. Kill him to denied the siege and claim victory!

The Siege of Niuzao Temple is located in Townlong Steppes, and can be accessed by level 90 players through a hollowed-out tree. The Mantid army has set up a Forward Assault Camp and is building a bridge to gain entry to the temple's island in the northwest. Players must progress through the tree and assault the camp. The main goal of the dungeon is to prevent completion of the bridge, which can only be ensured by killing the Mantid leader in the fourth and final boss encounter.

  • General Pa'valak ¨C The pragmatic General Pa'valak does not fear the pandaren or their allies, and he does not differentiate between using his own might and that of his mantid armies to defeat his enemies. Victory is the only honor he seeks, and Pa'valak will not tolerate failure should his minions fall short of their goal.
  • Vizier Jin'bak ¨C Vizier Jin'bak roams just beyond the mantid's natural bridge, collecting the tree root's precious sap. Using his vast alchemical knowledge, this formidable being is transforming the substance into weapons and other tools that will help advance the siege on Niuzao Temple.
  • Wing Leader Ner'onok ¨C Wing Leader Ner'onok's decisive blows have won a hundred battles. The small gains General Pa'valak has made are nothing compared to the victory Ner'onok believes he could achieve if he were in command. Although his aerial attacks have thus far devastated the temple's guardians, the winged terror still longs for a chance to prove his superiority over the general.
  • Commander Vo'jak ¨C What Commander Vo'jak lacks in strategic brilliance, he makes up for with raw ferocity. His devastating strikes were crucial to the mantid's exploitation of their insidious bridge, allowing them to infiltrate the island. Yet devising battle plans is for the mantid general; Vo'jak craves only blood.
