Ruins Rise is located in the northwest section of the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, north of the Ruins of Guo-Lai. It appears this was once a pandaren camp, its path winding up into the hills and to a cave. Now the ruins are under the control of mogu, and a steady stream of troops marches down the hill.

An extremely narrow path leads up to him, situated between the ruins and the Golden Stair, just east of the ruins' trail. He tells the story of , the cloud serpent that can be seen flying through much of the Vale's skies.
