Sturdy Crab Crate
which start a short quest series and give you a 30 minute buff upon completion. Check out our complete list of commendation rewards, which do cool things like buff your allies or fortify your base,

5.1 Reputation Changes
While the reputation grinds in Mists of Pandaria try some innovative things like removing reputation from tabards in dungeons, many players were not looking forward to repeating the grind on their alts.
In 5.1, each faction now has a special commendation that can be purchased at Revered from quartermasters which unlocks a 100% bonus reputation gain for all characters on the account.

2012/11/09 at 3:11 PM

quartermasters! Rewards include ilvl 496 boots, rings, belts, and trinkets, as well as ilvl 458 trinkets, and commendation tokens (
Grand Commendation of Operation: Shieldwall
Grand Commendation of the Dominance Offensive
). The most interesting reward by far is
Grand Armored Wyvern
Grand Armored Gryphon

Mists of Pandaria: Reputation Quick Facts (Updated for 5.4)
2012/09/30 at 12:39 PM
This guide provides quick facts for every Mists of Pandaria faction: where their quartermaster is located, how to gain reputation, and rewards. You can visit Wowhead's faction pages for more information, as well as our reputation guides, which have been updated for 5.4.
Eight factions originally shipped with Mists of Pandaria: four have epic gear rewards, while the other four have quirky vanity items. All have epic mounts and detailed tabards as Exalted rewards.
In later patches, two factions have been added for the Alliance and Horde (four total), as well as a raid-related faction and Timbermaw-style reputation grind.
Reputations are a bit different to grind in Mists of Pandaria--the old system of equipping a tabard and farming dungeons has been removed. Tabards only serve vanity purposes now and reputation is gained by doing daily quests. Each faction has a compelling story behind it and the daily quests are interesting and varied, such as completing a racecourse on a cloud serpent.

Justice Point and Valor Point gear no longer requires reputation and has undergone cost changes.

Mists of Pandaria Faction Guide: The Lorewalkers
2012/08/21 at 2:46 PM
Gaining reputation with
is an unusual process. Instead of completing dailies or zone quests like most other Pandaren factions, players gain reputation by visiting monuments, completing achievements, and hearing folktales. If you have an organized path in mind, hitting Exalted should only take a few hours with a flying mount!
As the keepers of Pandaren culture,The Lorewalkers go hand-in-hand with the spirit of Archaeology. The unusual reputation grind fits the nature of these cultural librarians, and reputation rewards enhance this profession. Check out our beta article on archaeology changes
