Lorewalker Cho



The Lorewalkers are a pandaren faction bent on exploring the world and discovering old relics to fill out libraries. Lorewalkers are also subsequently Pandaria's primary historians, recording down the misty continent's past in the ancient libraries in which they roam. They are caretakers of the mysteries of Pandaria, these brave souls roam the continent, hoping to learn from their history.


The Lorewalkers are scholars, scientists, peacemakers, and occasionally masters of the arcane. Pandaren of any age may begin training as a Lorewalker, although most begin as children.

Lorewalkers are highly valued and respected in Pandaren culture, although their training is long and expensive. Thus, by majority wealthier families send their children off for training, although it is not unheard of for the Lorewalkers to accept the studious poor. Lorewalkers can hold many positions, and are required to take a civil service exam for placement.

The Lorewalkers, like the warriors of Shado-Pan, are considered to be servants of Pandaria and all its people and in theory have no political allegiance. After finishing their course of study, a Lorewalker may work as a city official, scholar, healer, or various other positions, usually depending on their specialty and performance on the exam.

Grand Preceptor

The Grand Preceptor is considered the senior member of the order and serves as its representative to the king. He can only be made or unmade by the Jade Council. Prior to The Sundering, the Grand Preceptor answered to the Emperor, acting as a chief adviser, with many other Lorewalkers in his employ.

The Grand Preceptor wears many intricate patterns on his tabard, which denote his political authority.

The current Grand Preceptor is Lorewalker Cho.


The perceived "master" of any area of study is given a tabard and robes of the finest silk, with each color denoting their field of study. Archsages are the senior members of the Order and are given the right to sit on the Jade Council. The Jade Council is the governing body of The Lorewalkers and is the same body that elects the Grand Preceptor.


The Lorekeeper is chosen from among the Sages by lot. A new one is chosen each year. The Lorekeeper is tasked with the governance of the Temple.
