Key to the Palace

Earlier today I took part in killing the Haywire Sunreaver Construct, one of the new rare elites on the Isle of Thunder. I was able to loot a Key to the Palace of Lei Shen which allows entry to the solo scenario.

TaoshiTo start, head over to the Bleak Hollow cave (51.4, 46.2) and talk to Taoshi. Once you’ve accepted her quest, you’ll be able to enter the scenario then speak to Taoshi again to open the door and start the timer.

As you progress though the rooms you’ll have access to various chests like Mogu Treasure Chests and Golden Treasure Chests while trying to avoid obstacles along the way. You can use the speed boosts around the place by running through the green runes and buy some handy items located at the entrance once you’ve teleported inside or off your faction vendor to increase your chances of success.

With a 5min time limit, don’t waste too much time trying to access some of the more difficult chest placements, especially if it’s your first time in there. The first room will have a series of small spiders, lightning AoE and mogu statues which come to life as soon as you pass them. Once you reach the second room, you’ll have to watch elemental tiles, glowing circles and roaming eyes.

By then end, you have a chance to loot the following:

Once the timer is up, you’re teleported out of the dungeon to Taoshi’s location where she hands you a Burial Trove Key as a reward. This allows you to open one of Lei Shen’s Burial Troves in the room, unless you’re lucky enough to loot another one in the dungeon.

Trove

You can run the scenario as often as you like, if you’re lucky enough to loot multiple keys per week. I was able to run it twice in two days after receiving another key in my daily Sunreaver cache but the quest to receive a Burial Trove Key is a one time only thing. Any others with have to be looted from chests inside the scenario or talking to Tenwu in the last room before your time expires. There is a very small chance to loot a Mogu Rune of Fate from Lei Shen’s Burial Trove as well.

Once you become familiar with the scenario and chests, you can have a go at completing the achievement – In the Hall of the Thunder King.

So GL and happy looting.

    • There’s a lever on the left side of the steps leading up to the door.

  2. Did pretty well for my first go. Taking a gamble and not knowing what to expect, had no increase movement speeds or potions from the vendor came out with almost 400g, 3 keys, and 20+ pages, it was not a bad first run. I will be more prepared for the next time I run it.
