Grinding for rep: Darnassus

I had made it my goal recently to get a kitty mount from the Night Elves, though as I found out that’s not an easy task.

If you want to become exalted with the Night Elves and get your own kitty mount it is going to take a lot of time and sometimes a lot of gold.

There are four repeatable quests to gain reputation with Darnassus.

  1. Pristine Yeti Hide from Pratt McGrubben (30, 42) in Feathermoon Stronghold for 250+ Rep. 1 each Pristine Yeti Hide. The drop rate for it is very low. I did not have one to turn in at 64.
  2. Morrowgrain to Darnassus from Mathrengyl Bearwalker (32,8) in Darnassus for 50+ rep. 10 Each Morrowgrain. At 64 I was getting 82 rep.
  3. Morrowgrain to Feathermoon Stronghold from Quintis Jonespyre (32, 43) in Feathermoon Stronghold for 25+ rep. 5 Each Morrowgrain. At 64 I was getting 28 rep.
  4. Additional Runecloth from Raedon Duskstriker (63, 23) in Darnassus for 75+ rep. 20 Each Runecloth. At 64 I was getting 83 rep.

All of those will take considerable time and effort to gain the necessary reputation to become exalted, and reputation gains will vary depending on race, current reputation, and level.

So I recommend that you do what I did.  I did this with a level 64 Human Warlock and still received full reputation gains.

What you do is go to the Starting area for the Night Elves, Shadowglen, and do all the quests like you were a level one toon.

The quest givers won’t show up on your map, but just talk to the Night Elves around there and in all the low level areas if you are not familiar with that area. So basically just follow the path of progression the game gives you and you will gain a tremendous amount of rep.  You will still need to do the repeatable quests, but it won’t seem as daunting as before.                  

Follow my advice and in no time you will have your very own kitty mount.

    in the mini-map theres an option to turn onlow level quests

    (I’m currently working on getting my cat)
    so far I’m revered by Darnassus
    what I’ve done so far is go to shadow glen and get the 1st quest that a night elf would get then just start picking up all of the nearby quests

    clear all of Darnassus of low lvl quests (afew near the end of doing all darnassus will lead you to darkshore
    also theres some low lvl quests on Azuremyst Isle that give rep for Darnassus (and likely more on bloodmyst isle)

    I hope to get a cat soon (so much cooler than a horse)

    Don’t forget, you CAN track low-level quests. It’d save a lot of running around wasting time.

    As a gnome, and other races I imagine, it’s possible to get Exalted by level 28 or 29 by doing all the quests Teldrasil, Darkshore and Ashenvale. There are four or five quests on Bloodmyst and Azuremyst Islands given by Night Elves. I’ve done it twice. I did NOT do Blackfathom Deeps, but those quests grant a large Darnassus reputation reward also.

    It was cool when you could only get mounts at level 30, and got a cat as your first mount.
