The Reins of the Heavenly Golden Cloud Serpent mount can be purchased from Mistweaver Ku on the Timeless Isle once you are Exalted with Emperor Shaohao for 100,000 Timeless Coins.

This rep can be completed within a day but it’s going to be a consistent mob grind to make that happen.

How to gain rep

Gaining rep with Emperor Shaohao is very simple at least. You head over to the Timeless Isle and slay Ordon Yaungols. Depending on where you are within the Timeless Isle will depend on how much rep you get per kill.

The rep gains change based on the area of the map, there are three areas that contain Yaungols:
– The Firewalker Ruins where you will get roughly 5-10 reputation per kill
– The Blazing Way where you will get roughly 15-20 reputation per kill
– Ordon Sanctuary where you will get 20-25 reputation per kill

The Firewalker Ruins and Blazing Way can be accessed easily by any player but unfortunately the Ordon Sanctuary where you can get the most reputation is locked behind a remove legendary quest from Mists of Pandaria. So if you haven’t done this quest in the past, you won’t be able to reach the Ordon Sanctuary without being teleported out of the area.

The strategy is to move between these various areas and clear out the Yaungol found within them. Even if you only have access to the first two, you can still move between them and won’t be waiting too long for them to respawn once again.

At Honored you can purchase a Scroll of Challenge for 500 Timeless Coins from Mistweaver Ku. This will allow you to head just north of the Celestial Court. Here you will find a stone, using the Scroll on the stone will consume the Scroll but in return will summon a large number of Yaungol associated mobs. Killing these will give a decent chunk of reputation and Timeless Coins.

The Stone has a 10 minute cooldown and I would recommend making use of it whenever you are waiting for respawns or are having fierce competition for mobs.

Repeat the mentioned steps until Exalted. This is going to be a fairly sanity draining grind, not one I would recommend attempting in one sitting but it certainly is achievable in a day if you really push for it.

Gaining Timeless Coins

By completing the reputation grind you should have enough or close to the 100,000 needed to purchase the mount. However if you need more coins then I would recommend farming the Gulp Frogs. These are fast spawning and have a decent density with a good yield of coins per kill.

Extra Tips

Humans receive 10% extra reputation from all sources due to their racial buff. Additionally, countless reputation buffs can be utilized to speed up your reputation gains further, such as the WHEE! (DMF is around for one week every month), WOW Anniversary buff or other mini-holiday related buffs such as Grim Visage.

You can also place down Guild Banners like the Battle Standard of Coordination. These can be purchase from a Guild Vendor if you’re guild has unlocked them and provide 5%, 10% or 15% additional reputation in the immediate area, depending on which quality of banner has been placed.

If the Mists of Pandaria Timewalking event is active then you can also make use of the 50% bonus reputation provided by Sign of Mists during this event.
