One of the August Celestials, Niuzao is the yak of the West.
The August Celestials are a reference to the four guardians of the compass directions in Chinese mythology: the dragon in the East, the bird in the South, the tiger in the West, and the turtle in the North.
It doesn't match up
the same with the myth, since in WoW the tiger is in the North and instead of a turtle there's a Western yak. But still, it's obviously meant to be a reference.
why is it called the black ox when it appears mostly white?
Actually he's Black with while hair but shinning :)
If you are bored, turn up your speakers, click it and listen to some strange moaning sounds...
I came to the nizuazo temple so i could pull in the mobs of creatures in the line of witch the black ox runs so he could kill them and so i could get black prince rep but now i went today and hes not there running around the place killing things please help.
There has been a stealth nerf in regards to
Niuzao the Black Ox
Instead of him running around the temple trampeling mobs in his path he has now been positioned at the top of the stairs behind the daily quest givers.
I cant seem to find anything official on this but becareful on how much your now pulling as he wont be there to save you!
Just flew over the temple and he is indeed charging around the edges again. So it would appear that he has the odd day off!
I'm not sure if it relates to which dailies are up or if it's a set pattern at this this point.
Can Niuzao be referring to 牛皂, with 牛(níu) meaning ox and 皂(zào) meaning black
He looks an awful lot like a certain Air Bison that Aang liked to ride....
There are several Dailies on this little island, and Niuzao makes doing them obscenely easy.
Aggro up your targets, pull them into the path of Niuzao's rampage, and let him do the killing. He is invincible. He can even one-shot those big bugs. However he won't hurt you. Since they were aggroed on you, the kills are attributed to you. You can even loot the bodies.
Not all the dailies involve killing, but you can still use Niuzao to kill the bugs in your way.
Niuzao is a being of demigod-like power, a Celestial, who manifests himself as a black and white ox. He is a friend to the
, who revere him for his example of inner strength, endurance and perseverance. Although Mantid set upon his temple from all sides, he can be found standing atop the stairs overlooking his ruined courtyard, surrounded by his followers. Other days he may be fighting off the Mantid attackers.
, the Thunder King, enslaved the Pandaren many years ago, Niuzao succumbed to fear and doubt, cowering atop a hill as an entire legion of lifelike clay Mogu stood before him.
, the white tiger, was shackled as the Thunder King laughed from afar, driving him to roar in unrestrained anger and hatred.
, the red crane, flew far and wide to spread hope but was captured, despairing as the Mogu tied him and bound his wings to serve as an example.
The jade serpent
had encouraged the Pandaren to give up their duties in search of wisdom. Lei Shen was furious. Instead of capturing her like the others, he struck her down from the sky in a flash of lightning, sending her crashing into a forest thicket on the edge of death. In contempt of Pandaren and their unruly qualities, Lei Shen outlawed worship of the Celestials. Even speaking their names was punishable by torture or death.
Forgetting the teachings of the celestials didn't just mean being unable to recite old fables and scriptures. Some of the Pandaren feared the Mogu so much that they jumped at every shadow, and lived every day imprisoned inside their own heads. Other Pandaren's thoughts languished in revenge and violence, turning them into bitter, hateful beings. Many of them gave up and accepted their fate with no dreams of a better future, knowing for certain they could only accept slavery or die.
As it would happen, a group of Pandaren found Yu'lon and bought her to an underground mine where she could safely lie. She blessed them with the wisdom of the celestials, and they built a replica of her out of jade as an act of respect. After a hundred years she drew her last breath, but instead of dying she transferred her essence to the statue, now a symbol of eternal renewal. "Every end marks a new beginning", she said.
With the blessing of Yu'lon's wisdom, Pandaren did not give in after all. The Thunder King passed and the Mogu grew complacent, thinking their dark magic and whips were enough to keep the Pandaren in line. Eventually Kang, the first
, taught his fellow slaves to fight enemies and match the blows of their weapons unarmed, and they rose up to overthrow the Mogu empire, presumably freeing their celestials in the process. The qualities of the Celestials and Kang's fighting technique are hallmarks of Pandaren culture, as seen in the game today.
