It shouldn’t have been that hard. I was already more than halfway to Exalted with my Blade’s Edge guild. So, more rep granting quests (such as Elders and dailies) and I would be there in no time. When I got up this morning, I think I was actually about 75% of the way there. So I figured I would knock off the Kalimdor Elders and see where that left me. Turns out I missed a few. It wasn’t a big deal, as there are plenty of ways to nab some quests. I decided, for a change of pace, that I would head to the Isle of Quel’Danas and do those dailies.
I rounded them all up and handed them in…only to find those quests don’t actually grant any reputation outside of the Shattered Sun Offensive. Hrmph. So, off I went again. This time I headed to the Darkmoon Faire and did the quests there. When Saintvache was done there I was so close, yet so far. So I circled and picked up a few more Elders and did some pet battle dailies along the way.
At long last I was a single quest away and I had to head back and hand in a pet battle quest in Orgrimmar. Huzzah! Exalted. Gimme my Dark Phoenix!…it’s not there. Neither is the Scorpion. Frustration begins to kick in and I inadvertently close the Guild Vendor window. I whisper Repgrind for advice but she doesn’t know either. Reopen the window and low and behold it’s there. But I don’t have Artisan Riding, which is required. Are you kidding me? Off to the flying trainer I go…
Alright. So, I’m Exalted. I have Artisan Riding. I…no longer have the gold on this toon. Oh come on already! Look at TitanPanel to figure out where my gold is. Wonder why the hell my level 40 Warrior has 2,000 gold and proceed to shuffle most of it, and some from my banker, back to Saintavche.
Guild Rep? Check. Artisan Riding? Check. Money? Check. Hand it over.
