In an effort to find the Thunder King’s remains before the Zandalari, Lorewalker Cho directed me to the Tomb of Shadows to reveal an ancient alliance between the Mogu and Zandalari forces. However, time was of the essence as I raced to stop the Spiritbinding Ritual in the Tomb of Secrets. Failure was not an option. I had to find the Thunder King’s remains. With only one more tomb in the Valley of Emperors, Cho was convinced he was buried in the largest of the three – the Tomb of Conquerors.

I was sent to find the bottom fragment of Lei Shen’s tablet in order to restore the Tablet of Thunder.

Just as I entered the tomb, a number of booby-traps were triggered by an unwitting thief so, with no time to waste, I used the distraction to sneak inside.

Restoring the Tablet revealed more information:

Tomb of Conquerors tablet

Under Kun-Lai Thunder sleeps…

Tomb of Conquerors doors opening

Alive the dispossessed…

Tomb of Conquerors Thunder King

By Zandalari blood he will be taken… To Zandalari voice he will awaken…

which led me to the newly unlocked chamber.

…and the trolls.

Unfortunately, a troll warrior gave away my location which led to another set of traps going off as I made my escape.

It could have ended very badly as I almost became some sort of flame-grilled BE burger. Luckily I lived to tell the tale, informing Lorewalker Cho of my discovery… my journey would lead me to the coast.
