Phew! The last faction for Pandaria – Exalted (several days ago) but I’m only posting this now. Go Figure!
As soon as I hit revered with the faction, I bought the Grand Commendation of the Dominance Offensive just to make it that much faster – and it was. Almost every day we had another storyline to complete – either to go find someone, scout an area, locate something or retrieve something. But one thing soon became clear, it was all to do with the Divine Bell.
Doing the extra trap daily for some bonus rep worked out nicely too, although farming the materials for the crane seemed the most annoying. My favourite was the crab since you only needed to farm the Unga Villagers for some funky fish while Cool liked doing the tiger one. While you don’t need to have the quest to get credit for the kill, you can just wait for the zone-wide alert when one of the beasts are caged by a player. Be aware that you can only turn in one of these quests per day since it is a daily.
Just make sure you know (or can work out) the mechanic for the fight before you try it. If you’re hanging around for a free kill, pls don’t be a dumbass and stand there when you’re being focused by the crab. You need to kite it so the crab will keep taking damage. Also, stampede and growl are annoying for that very reason.
Once I hit exalted, I purchased the Grand Armored Wyvern from the Quartermaster.
Now I’ll just need to make sure I do all the raids so I can max out my points each week… and then some.
I’ve been looking forward to completing this questline for a long time now, especially since I’ve been exalted with The August Celestials for a while. Apparently, the dailies for the Temple of the Red Crane could be picked up (even though they weren’t the set quest hub for the day) but that was hotfixed a while ago.
So with six fights left to do, I made sure that I didn’t miss out on one day of it.
The last fight with Ella ended as expected. You could see how much more despondent she became each time she was defeated. Although I wondered why I didn’t get a Sha in place of my Shadowfiend today.
During the fight I had my other staff on. Bah!
Hurray! That’s all the reputations and questlines for Pandaria accounted for.
