Order of the Cloud Serpent

When I first saw the Heart of the Aspects mount, I was quite fascinated by the look of it, until I saw it in-game. I didn’t realise just how huge it was. It hovers even when it’s low to the ground and has a kind of backstroke swimming animation. That didn’t stop me from buying one though as I was amped to play the beta and get immersed in the rich Chinese landscapes.

In order to get your own Cloud Serpent in Pandaria, you’ll first have grind reputation with the Order of the Cloud Serpent – an order of ancient flying warriors, founded during the Zandalari wars. Only by gaining favour with them, will they reveal the secrets of training a cloud serpent to become a loyal mount.

To begin, you’ll have to decide which colour you want out of three possible colours – blue, green or gold. The egg you choose will promptly hatch into a tiny little mini-Serpent which you will raise through a series of quests.

From there you’ll complete daily quests until he matures into a fully grown, rideable mount; much like the Venomhide Ravasaur (Horde) or Winterspring Frostsaber (Alliance) mount. At revered see Instructor Windblade who will teach you the rules of the racing course. The next series of quests involves training your serpent to race through the training track.

For an extra 500 rep you can also hand in Onyx Eggs found scattered around Windward Isle. This quest is repeatable – remember your Netherwing rep grind?

You can also hand in Quivering Firestorm Eggs which have a chance to drop from Huolon the rare onyx cloud serpent flying around the Timeless Isle.

Once you’re exalted, you can purchase the other two mounts from the quartermaster.

The question is: which to get first?

Oh and don’t forget about the three hatchlings you can capture once you’re exalted too.

  1. I’m torn about the color, really undecided between blue and gold: on the one hand, blue would probably go best with the pearly skin and hair of my Draenei (I chose the lightest hues available in both cases); on the other, gold reminds me of the Light and would therefore go well with a Priest.

    I have a character for each class, so maybe I could assign the color of their Cloud Serpent by class: gold for Priest and Paladin, Black for Warlock and Death Knight, Red for Warrior and Rogue, Blue for Mage and Shaman, Green for Druid and Hunter…

    Then again, best of all would be if Blizzard just let us get one of every color, either by simply buying those not in the egg we chose to hatch, kinda like with the Netherwing Drakes, or even by having to spend 20 days on each color.

    I would not mind at all, they’re all so gorgeous! ;D

  2. Pink for my Priest and probably green for my Druid. I do like the Onyx too but not sure it would suit any of the healers. I’m hoping that if/when we get account bound mounts, these will also be shared so I could farm one of each colour across my alts and then have access to all.
