Hate Leads to Suffering

Shado-Pan-Monastery-Hate-Leads-to-Suffering-Achievement

This can only be done on Heroic.

Defeat Taran Zhu while every party member is at maximum hatred.

You can do this fight as normal but need to stop damaging the boss around 5% health. And make sure you have no more Gripping Hatred Orbs alive.

This is when your whole group needs to gain maximum hatred (Haze of Hate).

The Haze of Hate will:

Increase your physical damage by 20%.
Reduce your chance to hit by 90%.
Reduce healing done by 25%.

This will make the fight more difficult but with the boss having such low health you should be able to defeat him before other mechanics get too much.

If anyone in your group dies before boss does during this you will need to combat ress the player and wait for their bar to fill to max again.

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

Respect

Shado-Pan-Monastery-Respect-Achievement

This can only be done on Heroic.

Bow to the Shado-Pan Novices when they bow to you after being defeated during the Master Snowdrift event.

Just before you fight second boss Master Snowdrift you will be in a room to fight a group of Shado-Pan Novices.

When you defeat Shado-Pan Novices they will bow to you, you need to /bow back to them and you will get a 3 sec buff called Respect.

You must /bow every Shado-Pan Novice that you defeat during combat (they turn friendly when defeated).

It is easier to track when they will admit defeat and bow by turning on your in-game friendly nameplates. Some players also make a /bow macro and put on their bar.

Get everyone in your group to /bow the Shado-Pan Novices to make sure you definitely get them all, the achievement is group wide anyway meaning if one player did it themselves (assigned 1 player to /bow while the rest dpsed) the whole group will get it.

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

The Obvious Solution

Shado-Pan-Monastery-The-Obvious-Solution-Achievement

This can only be done on Heroic.

Eliminate the remaining Sha imprisoned in the Sealed Chambers and then defeat the Sha of Violence.

Have the tank pull the boss then assign 1 dps to run over to the left and activate the trigger called Containment Override that will open all 3 cages.

You will have a lot of adds running around so do your best, pop all damage increases like Bloodlust, healing cooldowns when needed and use plenty of aoe. Some players even kite adds around and use slows while they get dpsed down.

It can get a little crazy but as long as you have killed all the adds and then the boss you should get the achievement.

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