Old Man Liang is a wizened old pandaren that lives in the hills within the Singing Pools at his retreat[70.7, 38.6]. In his youth he was friend and playmate of the ancient spirit of water, , but his age has slowed him considerably, and he has withdrawn from his former activities. He assists players in finding a way to befriend Shu. After players accept his quests, he then appears near the Pool of Reflection[78.5, 42.7]. If players depart his retreat before accepting his quests, he will phase out; his quests will then be available at the Pool of Reflection instead.
