As you might have noticed, there is a new type of exploration achievements in Mists of Pandaria. Doing these achievements will give you a LOT of lore information on the races of Pandaria. There is also an achievement where you need to walk in the footsteps of Chen Stormstout.

Restore Balance

From Honeydew Village, take the road that goes south. When the road splits, take the left path until you see flights of stairs on your left (the path is called Path of Enlightenment). Take them. At the top of the stairs, take the path that goes on the right and follow it all the way to the Shrine of Fellowship. There, look for the "Broken Incense Burner" next to the bridge. Clicking it will complete the achievement. Obviously, it must be broken for now, so we will update this section when we know more.

May be a silly question, but will all the places and areas be the same place for everyone? Shouldn't be too bad if it is. Maybe include some co-ordinates with any locations you find as well for those with map addons and stuff. Could make it a little easier. I'm hoping a find a fair few while testing / questing rather than looking them all up straight away :)

Yes, all places will be the same for everyone. They are rather hard to find because many of them are not exactly in places you will visit while questing.

Thank you, Alastria! I will update the main guide as I find the objects myself on the beta. The idea is to see if there is room for improving the explanations.

Yep. I always loved the basic exploration achievements in WoW, even though they weren't very challenging.

This just gives an added reason to get out in the world, and collect things in an "Easter Egg" kind of way. Also, it makes a nice link between the zones and the lore. I can't be the only one who went looking for the place where Grom and Thrall fought Mannoroth.

Go at the base of the tree under which Sunset Brewgarden is located. The exact coordinates are 53.75, 16.24. There, you will find the entrance of an underground chamber, where the Amber is located.

Animated images are accepted, the URL just needs to finish in .gif, which is not the case with imageshack.
