WOW Reputation Mounts Guide: How to Quickest to Earn Reputation in 2023?
In World of Warcraft, one of the most rewarding achievements for players is collecting mounts. There are numerous factions in the game that offer unique mounts as a reward for reaching certain reputation levels. In this guide, we'll explore several faction mounts and the most efficient ways to obtain them. We'll cover factions such as the Golden Lotus, Shado-Pan, Order of the Cloud Serpent, Steamwheedle Preservation Society, Saberstalkers, Cenarion Expedition, Sha'tari Skyguard, Ramkahen, Sons of Hod, and more.
- Disc of the Red Flying Cloud
- Cloud Serpent
- Domesticated Razorback
- Bristling Hellboar
- Cenarion Hippogryph
- Nether Ray
- Red Drake
- Riding Camel
- Ice Mammoth
- Additional Tip
- Reputation: Golden Lotus
- Time Estimate: Approximately 1 hour
The first faction we will discuss is the Golden Lotus. Gaining exalted status with them will award you with various crane mounts. The reputation gains with the Golden Lotus occur in the Vale of Eternal Blossom in Pandaria. Instead of doing daily quests, we'll use a more efficient method.
Method 1: Killing Stone Dogs
Head to the north side of the Vale near the Gate of the Setting Sun. Here, you'll find Stone Dogs that spawn consistently. Killing these Stone Dogs yields reputation. A class with instant damage spells like a druid with Moonfire is excellent for this grind. In just two minutes, you can gain over 900 reputation. With this method, you can reach exalted status in about an hour.
Method 2: Killing Mogu and Opening Chests
Another way to gain reputation is by killing the Mogu on the left side of the Vale and inside the vaults. They drop Keys, and you can use these Keys to open chests at the end of the vaults, which may contain reputation tokens of 250 or 500. This method can be slower and is somewhat RNG-dependent.
Bonus: Zandalari Warbringers and Scouts
In the five zones in Pandaria, Zandalari Warbringers and Scouts can spawn and drop tokens that grant 1000 reputation. These tokens are account-bound, so you can send them to another character that needs the reputation. Be cautious, as these tokens can also reward reputation for other factions in Pandaria.
↖ Disc of the Red Flying Cloud
- Reputation: Lorewalkers
- Time Estimate: Approximately 1 hour
To reach exalted with the Lorewalkers and earn the Disc of the Red Flying Cloud mount, follow this method:
- Use the add-ons TomTom and Paste to locate and collect lore scrolls scattered across various zones. These scrolls will grant you achievements and items to turn in for reputation.
- Collect the lore items and turn them in to Lorewalker Cho above Mogu'shan Palace. He will have a quest for each item you collect. Completing these quests will grant you reputation.
- Purchase the "Grand Commendation of the Lorewalkers" from the quartermaster at Revered status. This item will double your reputation gains from Revered to Exalted.
- Once you reach Exalted, visit the quartermaster to purchase the Disc of the Red Flying Cloud mount.
↖ Cloud Serpent
- Reputation: Order of the Cloud Serpent
- Time Required: Approximately 3-4 hours
Gaining exalted status with the Order of the Cloud Serpent allows you to obtain three different cloud serpent mounts: green, blue, and yellow. The grind for this reputation will take about 3 to 4 hours, with some RNG elements that may speed up or slow down your progress.
- Start by picking up a quest at the Arboretum in Jade Forest, which will lead you to Windward Isle. Complete the introductory quests and choose a cloud serpent egg.
- Daily quests on Windward Isle will help you earn reputation and hatch your cloud serpent. Complete these daily quests to make progress.
- Search for Onyx Eggs scattered around the island. These eggs grant 500 reputation each when turned in to Elder Anli.
- While searching for eggs, consider hunting Cloud Serpent enemies on the Timeless Isle. They have a chance to drop Quivering Firestorm Eggs worth 1,000 reputation.
- Purchase the "Grand Commendation of the Order of the Cloud Serpent" at Revered status from the quartermaster to double your reputation gains from Revered to Exalted.
