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.
To 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.
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 stepping into the blue runes and buy some handy items located at the entrance once you’ve teleported inside or off your faction vendor (or on the ship) 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. For this reason, I don’t have any images from inside the scenario (which is the same thing that happened to Tome just one night earlier). The first room will have a series of small spiders, lightning AoE and mogu statues which come to life when opening the chest they are guarding. Once you reach the second room, you’ll have to watch elemental tiles, glowing circles and roaming eyes.
By then end of it, I was able to loot:
Shan’ze Ritual Stones used to summon an elite.
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.
It appears that you can run the scenario as often as you like, if you’re lucky enough to loot multiple keys. 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.
So GL and happy looting.
