Mists of Pandaria Beta Pandaren Valley of the Four Winds Zone Walkthrough - Part 2

In this second part of our Mists of Pandaria Valley of the Four Winds quest guide we will walk through the quest chains to help Chen Stormstout make his own brew. The chain involves many different pieces that have you travel around the village of Halfhill helping Chen, Li Li, and the surrounding locals

Quest Hub - Mudmug's Place

Well this is where it all starts when you enter Pandaria, you are off to visit a little quest hub called Pang's Stead which is a farm area in the zone called Valley of the Four Winds.

Chen returns to Mudmugs place with broken dreams from his failed visit to his family's brewery down the road. Talk to him and he will tell the story about his visit.

The story takes place in a very interesting way as instead of the normal dialog only Blizzard has decided to put you in Chen's place and you get to walk him through the brewery as he re-tells his tale. It is a differnt way to get the story across and works very well.

After Chen tells you his story he decides that rather that wallow in sorry over his meeting with his uncle, he will prove that he has what it takes to be a brewer himself. He asks you to meet up with him in the town of Halfhill to help him setup his own brewery.

Quest Hub - Halfhill

Once you make your way over to the town of Halfhill you will find Chen Stormstout in the town square. There he starts you on the quest chain that will have you help him brew his own beer to prove his worth to his uncle at the Stormstout brewery. Once you find him, make sure you also grab the flight point here at Halfhill which can be found just south-west of Chen. While this is a main hub, most of the quests will happen around Halfhill and will therefore be broken out to sub-sections.

Chen has tasks for everyone, he is getting barrels, Li Li the grain, Mudmug the water, and your primary task is to find some local hops worth brewing with.

Chen sends you to visit three local farms to get hops to use, the farms are Fran, Gai Lan, and Den Mudclaw. Visit and obtain hops from each before returning to Chen.

Chen is worried about Mudmug being able to handle bringing back all the water required and asks that you go and give him a hand. You can find him just north of Halfhill along the river delta area called the Gilded Fan.

Li Li and the Grain

Chen asks you to track down Li Li and let her know what type of grain he needs as he never told her any specific kind. You will find her at the Imperial Granary to the south of Halfhill.

This quest will be done after the two above quests.

Quest Hub - The Gilded Fan

The Gilded Fan is a watery area just north of Halfhill and where you will find Mudmug to help with the water.

Mudmug is grateful for your help and asks that you help him gather 30 samples of water. Guide him to the water areas that are sparkling and protect him as he gathers water from various sources along the waterline. Once he has his 30 samples he will be piled high with barrels of water and this completes the quest.

Once you have helped Mudmug gather all of the water from the Gilded fan he asks for an escort back to Halfhill.

Do this quest either before proceeding up the road to deal with the farmers for the hops, or to save time complete it on your way back from the farmers. If you chose to do the farmers first and he becomes separated from you, he can be found along the road where you first met him when you are on your way back to town later.
