- Lorewalker Cho says: "But thunder. Thunder! Thunder proclaims the coming of the storm."
- Lorewalker Cho says: "I will be... The Thunder King."
- Lorewalker Cho says: "It is thunder that sends animals cowering and fills the hearts of peasants with dread. Let thunder be my herald, so that my power is felt throughout the land."
- Lorewalker Cho says: "Lightning strikes in an instant and is over in a flash," he said.
- Lorewalker Cho says: "Thunder quakes the skies long before the lightning strikes, and thunder echoes in the hills long after lightning's power is spent."
- Lorewalker Cho says: "We cannot help you," said the Bronzebeard dwarf, "For if we turn our back on the Dark Irons, they will defeat the Wildhammer and take over Ironforge!"
- Lorewalker Cho says: Ah, but such terrible works!
- Lorewalker Cho says: And his visions DID come to pass.
- Lorewalker Cho says: And so it was a human king who helped to unite the dwarven clans so long divided.
- Lorewalker Cho says: And they created a magical cradle of life in a hidden valley that we now call the Vale of Eternal Blossoms.
- Lorewalker Cho says: But eventually the titans fell silent. And their creations were cursed with flesh.
- Lorewalker Cho says: But Lei Shen did not agree.
- Lorewalker Cho says: But what the king did not realize is that the dwarves did not trust one another!
- Lorewalker Cho says: By the titans' command, they fought the terrible servants of the old gods. They shaped the mountains and carved the rivers of the land.
- Lorewalker Cho says: Fathers and sons. Mothers and daughters. As parents, we pass our legacy on to our children.
- Lorewalker Cho says: Finally, mere months before the Cataclysm, Zul returned. Tearing his clothes and throwing his staff to the ground, Zul spoke of earthquakes and tidal waves.
- Lorewalker Cho says: Free to trust one another, all three dwarven leaders pledged their full strength to the Alliance cause.
- Lorewalker Cho says: He described the golden capital of Zandalar slowly sinking beneath the waves in the aftermath of the Cataclysm, its once-great people drowning as their mighty works slipped forever beneath the sea.
- Lorewalker Cho says: He promised gold and riches to any who could discover for him the hidden secrets of this land that fill Pandaria with such a dark and powerful energy.
- Lorewalker Cho says: His followers fell to their knees before him. "We will call you 'The Lightning King,'" they said.
- Lorewalker Cho says: How especially true this is, when the parents are gods. And their children - monsters.
- Lorewalker Cho says: I do not see any rainbows today. Do you?
- Lorewalker Cho says: I truly believe now that the mogu thought they were doing the work of the titans. They fought against the mantid and used the powers of the Vale to create new life.
- Lorewalker Cho says: It is said that after the revolution, the Red Crane of Hope placed the rainbow in the sky, so that pandaren would know not to fear the storms any longer.
- Lorewalker Cho says: It is said that he tore out the very heart of the mogu God. And from that hateful act he gained power over wind and storm.
- Lorewalker Cho says: It is said the God King Rastakhan, ruler of the Zandalari, lords over his mighty kingdom from a throne carved of solid gold.
- Lorewalker Cho says: King Rastakhan did nothing.
- Lorewalker Cho says: King Rastakhan tired of Zul and his troubling nightmares. To be rid of the prophet, he granted Zul the use of his largest ships, so that he and his followers could seek a new land if his visions came to pass.
- Lorewalker Cho says: Meanwhile, in the city of Orgrimmar, Warchief Garrosh Hellscream sent goblin dig teams all across the continent of Pandaria.
- Lorewalker Cho says: Months later Zul returned, bearing more grim news from his visions. He saw a legion of serpents pouring forth from a gaping fissure that tore open the floor of the ocean.
- Lorewalker Cho says: Oh my friend - that awful sound. For a hundred hundred generations the crash of thunder filled the hearts of pandaren with terror.
- Lorewalker Cho says: Once upon a time - moments ago, in fact - a great king sought the help from a trio of powerful dwarves: The Council of Three Hammers.
- Lorewalker Cho says: Parents cannot always be assured of the legacy they will leave behind.
- Lorewalker Cho says: Parents place their children on a path, but they do not always know where the road will take them.
- Lorewalker Cho says: Still, King Rastakhan did nothing.
- Lorewalker Cho says: Surely, the king thought, if he helped them with their troll problem, they would give him more troops for his campaign against the Horde.
- Lorewalker Cho says: The High King, his champions, and the Dark Iron dwarves worked together to save Ironforge.
- Lorewalker Cho says: The king's scouts had discovered that Zandalari trolls threatened the dwarven capital.
- Lorewalker Cho says: The mogu grew restless. Many generations later, when Thunder King united them, they seized upon their legacy!
- Lorewalker Cho says: The mogu tell a legend about Lei Shen, the Thunder King.
- Lorewalker Cho says: The mogu were children as well. Children of the titans. They were once a legion of stone, heartless and obedient.
- Lorewalker Cho says: The moment they fail, they cede their power to the one who can.
- Lorewalker Cho says: The other dwarven leaders were ashamed of their behavior, and vowed never again to allow fear or distrust to cloud their judgment.
- Lorewalker Cho says: The story is still being written...
- Lorewalker Cho says: The Zandalari people turned to their King for help, but there was only one Zandalari equipped to help them: The prophet Zul. The prophet, and the mighty warfleet he had assembled while his King sat idle.
- Lorewalker Cho says: To my surprise, his people have found something! Right here, in the sacred vale! What will happen now?
- Lorewalker Cho says: What sort of world will we create and leave behind for our daughters and sons?
- Lorewalker Cho says: What values do we choose to instill in our progeny?
- Lorewalker Cho says: What will our children learn from our mistakes?
- Lorewalker Cho says: When Deathwing rose from the Maelstrom, dark, angry waves crashed into the Zandalari capital. The spine of the land broke in two, and soon, the city and all its riches began to slide into the hungry sea.
- Lorewalker Cho says: Years ago, as he sat on this opulent seat of power, he was visited by his most trusted prophet: Zul.
- Lorewalker Cho says: You see, the TRUE power of kings and emperors stems from the power to aid their people.
- Lorewalker Cho says: Zul warned King Rastakhan of a terrible Cataclysm. For Zul had seen a vision of a great armored dragon clenching the world in his ferocious jaws.
