Jade Forest Walkthrough Guide - Part 2

The Jade Forest is the starting zone for the Mists of Pandaria expansion and is the only starting zone. This is the second part of the guide to make sure you can get through it quickly to avoid congestion.

Mists of Pandaria - Jade Forest Walkthrough - Part 2

The first part of this guide focused on the events that occured right after you make landfall on Pandaria. It was all about getting settled into your new environment after being attacked by the Alliance and then the mysterious Sha.

Now that you have started to get to know the Pandaren, and met a few of the other native races, it is time to really get settled. This section is about trying to make an ally or two in this new land, while still fending off the Alliance in the area.

This guide continues to focus on the Horde experience if you are Alliance the quests in this zone are different.

Quest Hub - Strongarm Airstrip

Now that you have driven the Alliance from the area, Nazgrim wants you to help him establish the a Horde strongpost. The Airstrip seems as good a place as any to start from, so he and his crew have several tasks for you.

Shademaster Kiryn is trying to eliminate the threat posed by the natives in the area, specifically the Hozen. She needs you to gather a some Viscous Chlorophyll so that she make make a poison that will affect them, and help in your fight against them. You can find this by killing the Lurching Blossoms around Serenity Falls.

Rivett needs some supplies and believes that one of his drones from the gunship crashed at the nearby Serenity Falls.

Head there and collect the crate, do it first though so that you get the next quest in the chain, which has you killing nearby Water Sprites. Which luckily are around the Luchring Blossoms that you need to kill for the Viscous Chlorophyll, so you can accomplish two quests at the same time.

They're So Thorny! Acid Rain

Strongarm Airstrip

The crate Rivett sent you to collect is empty. You figure out though that it was the Water Sprites that jacked the cargo.

Hunt them down and get back the supplies that Rivett needs.

The Hozen have started to attack in larger numbers since you have left. Kiryn quickly turns the plants you brought her into poison and coats a stack of throwing stars.

She then sends you out in a gyrocopter to rain death on the attacking Hozen. Take flight and kill 25 of each type of Hozen in thea area.

Lay of the Land
General Nazgrim
Strongarm Airstrip

The incessant attacks by the Hozen have Nazgrim frustrated and losing patience. The more Hozen you kill the more seem to attack.

Nazgrim wants you to head out and get the lay of the land. Visit the Shrine of the Sun and the Shrine of the Moon. Oh and while you are out there Nazgrim also wants to to kill the loud mouth Hozen that keeps hollering out in the valley, who is named Dook Oookem (forever?).

Quest Hub - Cave of Words

While exploring the area for Nazgrim you come across Lorewalker Cho who offers to enlighten you about Pandaria and the Pandaren people.

This quest is all about filling in some history and is only a story based quest, sit and listen.

The Lorewalker explains about the past and about the Hozen. He lets you know that while they currently fear you that will only last so long. To truly govern them you must inspire them.

Lorewalker Cho is more than willing to give you some more information about himself and his people, but would like you to follow him to the Circle of Bone.

Simply head off to the circle and talk to him there.

The Loremaster shows you a vision of his family and past. Then asks you to light an incense bundle and see your family history.

Lorewalker Cho has finished his history lesson and is now willing to help you out a bit more with your Hozen issue. He suggests that if you were to help the Hozen and prove your worth, that they might respect and follow you.

He would like you to go out to Lake Kittitata and save several Hozen from the Crocolisks there and to gather some trout for them. Once you have done this head to the local chief Tooki Tooki at Camp Nooka Nooka.

Tooki Tooki is impressed by your assistance and tells you to head to Grookin Hill to meet with Kah Kah.

It looks like you might be getting someplace with making inroads with the Hozen. Make sure you collect and complete the other quests at Camp Nooka Nooka before you head to Grookin Hill.

Bo Bo tells you that the Hozen at Grookin Hill are in need of bait. He wants you to collect enough bug legs from the Tigerflies nearby to supply them for a while.

Simply kills the bugs on the way to Grookin Hill.

Last of the quests at camp Nooka Nooka is one to help hunt down the Alliance nearby and collect thier service medallions for the Chief.

While slaying the Alliance near Grookin Hill if you slay the elite in the center of the area you can collect his head to gain this quest.

The quest is simply to take the captains head to Chief Kah Kah.

Quest Hub - Grookin Hill

This quest hub is where you are going to really start making headway with the Hozen. They now accept you as a friend and are learning to believe you that the Alliance are the enemy, it looks like you have a solid ally in Pandaria now. If only they were not monkeys...

Instant Messaging Beyond the Horizon

General Nazgrim
Grookin Hill

The chief of the Grookin Hill hozen recognizes you as a friend and gives you a signal flare as a gift.

When you use this item it will summon General Nazgrim and the rest of the Horde crew to the village.

The General is looking to explore the area and make it ready for Horde settlement. He wants you to go and talk to Shokia, Gorrok, Kiryn, and Chief Kah Kah to send them out or to get information.

This quest is all about talking to other NPC's and and learning what each is to do, this will lead to you picking up the quests for this area afterwards.

Chief Kah Kah

Rivett wants to really make the Hozen love the Horde by suppling even more fish, and he has a plan. Being a Goblin, of course that plan involves explosives.

Collect bird guts from the birds in the area so that you can use it as bait to attract the fish so that when the explosion goes off you have lots of fish nearby.

The Chief explains that only good "grookers" earn their name name. Hozen language is really odd, and grookers means killers. He wants you to go grook a bunch of Jinyu down by the water to earn your name name.

I'm not sure I want to be called by my name twice in a row like all the important Hozen, but you may, so head down to the river and kill 7 of the Jinyu fishmen there.

Now that you have the bird guts for Rivett he plasters them all over his explosive and sends you out to the shore to gather some fish from the resulting mayhem.

One of the Hozen lets you know that fish are for Hozen. He says that you are more than welcome to the turtle snapper steaks that you can collect though. Head of to the shore to collect at least 4 snapper steaks for the Horde to eat. This can be done with the previous quest in the same area for Rivett.

The Scouts Return Scouting Report: <Various>

Grookin Hill

While you were fooling around fishing, the scouts have returned. Rivett lets you know you should head over and talk to Shokia and get her report.

NExt up is a series of quests all called Scouting Report, which are given to you in sequence from the various characters that went out on the scouting missions.

All of the various short quests are done in a new style that Blizzard has impliment in Mists of Pandaria, that have you take the place of a NPC telling the story and playing out the storyline rather that just giving you a wall of text to read.

Rather that give you the whole story here, I'll let you go through them on your own, since you can not really fail or die on them.

It turns out that on the scouting mission the Prince of Stormwind was captured, almost by accident. General Nazgrim doesnt want to lose the prince so asks that you keep an eye out for infiltrators tring to sneak into camp.

Head out into the field and slay at least 8 Alliance infiltrators.

Rivett wants to go green with clean burning all natural energy from the methane produced by the Hozen.

Head out into the field and gather branches to make an outhouse for Rivett.

Yet again, Blizzards fascination with potty related quests surfaces.

Right back to the explosives from the Goblin, this time though it is poop based.

Talk to Rivett and grab the grenades as fast as he can create them to blow up the incoming Jinyu.

Nazgrim has spotted an Alliance camp built up on the ridge above Grookin Hill.

He offers you his grog to start a fire in the enemy camp, which is where you need to head to next.
