Today I managed to get exalted with the Order of the Cloud Serpent. It wasn’t a terribly long grind as the dailies were quite varied and you can always hand in Onyx eggs for extra rep.

Exalted - Order of the Cloud Serpent

As soon as you accept this quest, a cutscene begins.

Cloud Serpent cutscene

Today your journey toward the Order of the Cloud Serpent ends. Today, a new rider joins our ranks.

Through thunder and storm we fly together.

Through sea and sky, we fly together.

Through wind and tide, we fly together.

Today, you forge an eternal bond with your cloud serpent.

Fly together with honour and courage. Now… rise as a serpent rider!

As you can see, you finally get the serpent you spent all that time raising. The Quartermaster will also offer the other two colours to buy, as well as the tabard.

The one I was the most excited about riding though was the Thundering Ruby Cloud Serpent which is freely available to players on the beta. The mount however, drops from Alani.

Interesting enough, you need to be exalted with the Order before you can ride her. Talk about a gorgeous mount.

But that’s not all!

At exalted, pet battlers will have the ability to capture three wild cloud serpent hatchlings around the Arboretum.

Oh and the other reason for me to get exalted? Five JC recipes for new panther mounts.

Now to get some sleep before my Round Table tomorrow. :)
