) or Blacksmith Oilfield (
), or along the Krasarang shore. If you turn in many commendations (gotten from looting enemy NPCs), you can purchase items like
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.
5.1 PTR: New Reputation Rewards, User of the Month
2012/11/09 at 3:11 PM
This latest PTR patch added rewards to
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
