The Sha of Despair is one of seven prime sha of Pandaria.

Biography Edit

The Burdens of Shaohao Edit

Emperor Shaohao, free of doubt, chased after his friend the Monkey King into the Krasarang Wilds, but in his haste stumbled into the swamps of the undomesticated land. Shaohao struggled to free himself as he sank further into the swamp which caused him to worry and the more he worried the further he sank. Those worries took form into the Sha of Despair. High above, the Chi-Ji soared, asking Shaohao why he struggled so much. Shaohao looked to the land for answers and noticed a great tree growing in the swamp he was in. He used the great roots as support and freed himself from the Sha of Despair's grasp.

The Sha of Despair was believed to have escaped from its bindings in the Temple of the Red Crane, and stifling gloom has begun to blanket the land of the Krasarang Wilds in its path. Thanks to the efforts of Anduin Wrynn, son of Varian Wrynn, including the champions of the Alliance and Horde, the Sha of Despair was defeated.
