After becoming revered with the Order of the Cloud Serpent, I was able to start my training for the Sky Race. Sadly in the beta, I only managed to race my serpent once before I became exalted. Today I managed to get both achievements for my serpent racing. I admit coming first was easier than I expected. In one of my trial runs I missed getting credit for the 6th checkpoint so I had to loop back to get it only to find I still came in first place.
This also meant that I could purchase 2 more JC panther recipes leaving the Jewelled Onyx Panther at exalted.
