The monastery atop Kun-Lai had changed over the years. What had once been the only refuge for free minds was now the training grounds for the most dedicated fighters in the land, trained to fight the mantid and all of Pandaria”s other enemies. At the time of the Great Sundering of Kalimdor, shortly after his coronation, Shaohao and the Monkey King came to the temple confidently, demanding that they submit to his authority. Xuen saw that he was carrying his coronation gift-this staff, Sheilun-but that it had been nothing more to him than a walking stick. The White Tiger also saw that the emperor had rid himself of a great many dangerous emotions but not anger. Shaohao”s anger toward the Burning Legion made him brash and reckless. Xuen offered a simple challenge, to strike a single one of these monks. Shaohao accepted and swung Sheilun over and over again, but he struck nothing at all. The monks were too skilled and easily evaded him. Shaohao”s humiliation and anger built up, and then they exploded. A great darkness burst forth from him, and in his rage, Shaohao broke Sheilun over his knee and lashed out with the power of the Sha of Anger. When he regained his senses, a monk lay dead, the victim of Shaohao”s unchecked aggression. Xuen watched the emperor”s heart break for the life he had taken. And then Shaohao knelt humbly, accepting his failure, ridding himself of anger forever and becoming wiser. He and Monkey King then departed the temple for the Vale of Eternal Blossoms.<3><4><5>
