After you defeat 1st boss Trial of the King the floor will open up (behind the loot chest) so you can go down some stairs to the next map.

When you go through the Forgotten Passageway and come up to the stairs and balcony above the 2nd boss Gekkan you can jump over the edge.

Instead of running down the stairs round and killing the mobs on the way you can skip these and jump over the balcony down to the boss.

Shortcut-Mogu’shan-Palace-Balcony

A lot of players do this as you get to skip the mobs(if the group doesn’t need to do the quest ‘Relics of the Four Kings’). You will take fall damage and aggro the boss straight away though so make sure healer is with you.

Glintrok N' Roll

This can only be done on Heroic.

Defeat Gekkan and his Glintrok entourage within 5 minutes of being spotted by the Glintrok Scout.

After you kill 1st boss Trial of the King you will go down a secret passage to next area, this is where the Glintrok Scout spots you and the 5 minutes will start (stairs open when loot is).

Mogu’shan-Palace-Scout-&-Stairs

A way to do this is have everyone in your group use a Lesser Invisibility Potion (lasts 15 seconds) to skip the mobs on the way.

If you mess up the Lesser Invisibility Potion you won’t be able to use this again for another 10 minutes which would mean you will have to kill the mobs and hope you have enough time.

When you reach the end (stairs and balcony) kill the mobs by the balcony so you can get everybody jumped over to the bottom where second boss Gekkan is. Healer make sure to top group up as you will all of taken damage from the fall.

Glintrok-N'-Roll-Achievement

By skipping some of the mobs with the invisibility potion you should have enough time to kill Gekkan and his adds to get the achievement.

This achievement goes towards ‘Glory of the Pandaria Hero’.

Quarrelsome Quilen Quintet

Jade-Quilen-Achievement

This can only be done on Heroic.

Collect all the Jade Quilen located throughout Mogu’Shan Palace.

There are 5 Jade Quilens within the dungeon. They can be in random locations or opposite rooms. Hunters can use Track Beasts and they show up on your mini map.

If you can’t get a group to do this achievement as you go wait until it is finished and stay behind. The dungeon should be almost empty of mobs making it easier to collect the Jade Quilens.

Here is a map of where i found mine.

Mogu'Shan-Palace-Jade-Quilen-Achievement Map

This achievement goes towards ‘Glory of the Pandaria Hero’.

What Does This Button Do?

This can only be done on Heroic.

Use Xin the Weaponmaster’s secret defense mechanism against him.

This achievement cannot be soloed as you need 2 players to click gems at same time, possibly a 3rd player to keep boss busy.

A red gem will appear in the mouth of 2 lion wall mounts.

Lion-Wall-Red-Gem

You need to dps boss down to 66% health for the first red gem to appear. The second red gem will appear at 33% health.

They will appear in the NW and SE (front left and bottom right of room).

You need a player waiting at each gem, they will need to be pressed at the same time. This can become difficult with all the weapons flying around and the knockbacks.

Make a macro or talk on voice chat to make it easier to coordinate. If you are successful a red beam will shoot from both lion mouths and you will soon after get the achievement.

What-Does-This-Button-Do-Achievement

You don’t need to kill the boss to get the achievement so you will know if it has worked.

This achievement goes towards ‘Glory of the Pandaria Hero’.
