Dominance

Only the strongest, most courageous, most resilient of yaungol may lead the tribes. These traits are of the highest qualities in yaungol society, and are expected of all yaungol leaders.

However, with the constant threat from the mantid to their south, the yaungol cannot afford to lose a single warrior in an internal struggle for power.

A surprisingly civilized solution to this problem has been put into place. When a dispute arises between two yaungol, a banner is placed between them. They then fight one another with blunted weapons until one yields or passes out.

Similarly, new leaders are chosen in ritual combat: a yaungol who aspires to take the place of chief must place his family banner and fight any who would challenge his authority.

 

Yaungoil

The scroll can be found in Kun-Lai Summit at the Fire Camp Yonqi. That’s the house icon north of the Yaungol Advance in the map. The scroll sits against a yaungol windmill. Coordinates: [71.71 - 63.00]

Burning oil is the cornerstone of yaungol warfare. In the days of their greatest warriors, this weapon was more deadly than magic. This burning substance would scar foes, scorch lands, burn away the cover provided by trees, and could rout even a terrifying mantid assault.

It is also an old tactic of the yaungol to light more campfires each night than people they have. In this way enemy spying in the darkness would assume larger numbers of yaungol existed, while their true positions and numbers remained masked.

 

Yaungol Tactics

The scroll can be found in Kun-Lai Summit at the Fire Camp Ordo — to the west of Westwind Rest. The scroll sits against a wood post with a Tauren skull. Coordinates: [50.37 - 79.21]

Forced to survive in the harsh terrain of the Townlong Steppes since the time of the last pandaren emperor, the yaungol have adapted their tactics accordingly.

The race is constantly on the move, establishing short-lived “Fire Camps” in areas of abundant natural resources (specifically oil and game) before moving on. Where to set up camp, how long to stay, and when to move out remains the sole discretion of the chieftain.

In combat, the yaungol prefer to hit hard and fast, making heavy use of cavalry to flank and harass the enemy while hard-hitting infantry assaults the weakest parts of the enemy line. Fire sorcery and flaming siege weapons back this initial assault.

Yaungol are known to retreat as quickly as they charge, always reading the enemy and only fully committing their forces to ensure victories.
