Beginning the Trial of Bamboo

The meter, empty

The meter, full


MoP Beta - Bruised Paw training P1

Trial of Bamboo training


Speak with Master Bruised Paw, then successfully strike the Stack of Bamboo Reeds 3 times.

  • Strike the Stack of Bamboo Reeds (3)


We will start with a test: The Trial of Bamboo.

Your friend Lin failed this test.

Follow me, and listen carefully to my instructions.


You show promise, <name>. We will continue.

It is time for your first round of training.


You will receive:

  • 111000 XP
  • 9g 80s


  • Two abilities will be available during this quest: one to strike the bamboo, and another to end the training.
  • A large ring will appear in the bottom center of the screen. It will fill to red from the inside-out. Once it is filled, players need to use the strike ability.
  • A cut scene of training plays upon completion. You can ask to replay the cut scene from the Master.


Ahhh... this test is simple. All you need to do is strike the bamboo, until it breaks.
"But it's too thick around!", you might say.
That is part of the test. Yes... to succeed, you must focus all your energy into one fist...
...then, STRIKE!
Strike the stack of bamboo when the meter is full!
Well done.
