Along the southern coast of Pandaria stretches a dense jungle thicket known as the Krasarang Wilds. This intrepid zone is separated from the peaceful Valley of Four Winds by an enormous natural cliff known as Wind's Edge. The wilds are still the home to the dangerous mogu and Sha of Despair but this coastal zone now houses the sacred Temple of the Red Crane.
When you enter this shadowy place, you begin to hear a faint choir accompaniment by loud taiko drums. A sustained string section begins to ebb and flow in the background by a deep drone plays a resonate bass line. A solo erhu gently enters with a melancholy melodic line that perfectly captures the dark and violent past of his ancient port but also the ethereal beauty that still exists in this ancient land. The accented percussion fades away and is replaced with a warm piano playing slow chords to accompany the erhu.
As you continue traversing the mossy ruins, the previous deep drone and drums return until they fade away once you reach the serene Temple of the Red Crane.
