Other quotes

Lorewalker Cho
Everyone looks so tiny from way up here!
Lorewalker Cho
Oh! A clever play.


Lorewalker Cho is the leader of the Lorewalkers, a faction of pandaren dedicated to the exploration of the world and its history. Cho encountered Alliance and Horde adventurers soon after their arrival on Pandaria, and has since been involved in a number of critical events that would go on to influence the future of Azeroth. Cho can also be found at the Seat of Knowledge in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, where he receives archeological artifacts from adventurers, and recounts stories from Pandaria's long history.


  • Cho is the only one of the tutorial bosses to congratulate Jaina on her victory after being defeated. In addition, he disappears in a puff of smoke rather than bursting into pieces as is usual when a hero or boss is normally defeated. On the Mission Progress screen after defeating Cho, Jaina says "It's been an honor, Lorewalker."
  • This mission is the first in which it is possible to lose, or fail to play cards, although you are still forced to attack with all capable minions each turn. Because of this, it is also the first mission in which it is possible to reach the end of the heroes' decks, and to experience (or even die to) fatigue.
