Pandaren history stretches back thousands of years. The pandaren once labored under a race of ancient warlords known as the Mogu. The pandaren eventually staged a successful revolution that deposed the Mogu and established a pandaren empire that would prosper for thousands of years.

During the days of the sundering, when demons flooded into Azeroth, the last Emperor of the pandaren discovered a way to protect his land. However this deal caused his land to be surrounded with an impenetrable mist for ten thousand years.

Some pandaren sought a way beyond the mist. Pandaren explorers began to use a giant turtle called Shen-zin Su. The great sea turtle roamed Azeroth’s oceans until eventually they too lost contact with their mist covered homeland.
