The Tavern can be found atop the Path of a Hundred Steps on the Veiled Stair. You can find the path leading up from the north side of The Valley of the Four Winds. There’s even a flight path at the bottom of the stairs. When I discovered the spot a couple of weeks ago, the place was empty; until I ventured out back.

On my first trip out there

Not sure who they were but it sure looked like they weren’t going anywhere in a hurry. Not that I could blame them :P

The NPCs seem to alternate though as the second time I arrived today the tub was empty. However a few hours later…

Today I went back to the area after hearing about some additions.

These days you’ll find an Innkeeper, Flight Master and even Stable Master here. A bit of a funny bug on the kite though as I appear to be hovering in a seated position under the kite. Such a great balancing act if I do say so myself, or should I say levitating act?


The terrace appears to be the headquarters of a pandaren black market, as well as the current location of Wrathion.

What’s interesting about the market is the fact that you’ll be able to buy items never before sold or maybe just unlucky to fish up like the Riding Turtle. Or maybe you’ve killed Deathwing but haven’t managed to win the Reins of the Blazing Drake yet. No problem, as you’ll be seeing that too according to what’s been data-mined. There’s even talk of the T3 sets being sold which aren’t available in the game any more. It was hoped that these Naxx sets might be added to the Darkmoon vendor over time but if this goes ahead, there may not be any need.

Check out what happened when I tried to access the AH

A lot of people won’t like the fact that their Ashes of Al’ar won’t be as rare any more. So love it or hate it, as there may end up being something for everyone. But be prepared to pay a pretty penny as the mounts appear to range from 20K and up while armour pieces and pets will be set at 10K.

I for one would love to be able to buy my T3 set on my Priest, but my priority of funds will probably go towards levelling up my professions and making my wondercat :P

What do you guys think? Planning on making any of these purchases?
