Mists Factions the ins and outs
This post will explain everything to do with all the factions in Mists from the quickest way to get rep all the way to what unlocks with each faction.
Once you hit 90 your main hub will be Shrine of The Two Moons when you arrive here after hitting level 90 you will have several new quests which will point you in the direction of the daily quests ups for all the Faction.
I am writing this bit by bit as I discover each faction and new information. Anything you think I have missed out of post please leave a comment, I will check what your saying is factual and then add it into the post
The Factions with their names in a Larger font are the once that are Critical for getting gear for raids (i.e Shiny purple loot)
The Anglers hub is in Krasarang Wilds at the Anglers Wharf. there are three Daily quests down here each giving +1 point in Fishing 20 Gold and 500 Rep (550 with guild perk).Once you gain honored with this faction you are able to buy this [URL="http://www.wowhead.com/item=85447"]fish[/URL] the major items from this factions are the Mounts [URL="http://www.wowhead.com/item=81354"]Reins of the Azure Water Strider[/URL] These mounts can be Obtained at Exalted so Approximately 26 days from Neutral.
Nat Pagle Also has two items that you can buy from him once you become Best friends with him these are A [URL="http://www.wowhead.com/item=88563"]BoA book[/URL] and [URL="http://www.wowhead.com/item=88710"]a lovely fishing hat[/URL]. to gain Friendship with Nat Pagle you need to fish (surprisingly) but your looking for 3 fish in Particular [URL="http://www.wowhead.com/item=86542"]1[/URL] [URL="http://www.wowhead.com/item=86545"]2[/URL] and [URL="http://www.wowhead.com/item=86544"]3[/URL]. the Flying Tiger Gourami is fresh water so rivers in Jade Forest, Karasang Wilds or Four Winds. The mimic Octopus is Salt water so any ocean will do including the pier that Nat's stood on. finally Spinefish Alpha is the hardest to catch and can only ne caught at Inkgill Mere in Kun-Lai Summit. Each fish gives 550 rep with Nat. Once Exalted you can buy yourself a [URL="http://www.wowhead.com/item=81354#."]Water Strider.[/URL] These fish are unique but once handed in you can collect another one of each ready for the next days hand in.
The Lorewalkers are exactly as they sound. they tell you about a lot of lore. There is only really one reason to grind the rep for these guys and that's simple [URL="http://www.wowhead.com/item=89363"]Disc of the Red Flying Cloud[/URL].Gaining rep with the Lorewalkers couldn't be simpler. all you have to do is fly around and click on Several lore items around the world to get Achievements, Once you have done the Achievements you will have all the items to need to get Exalted with this faction. Thanks to several sources that posted on Wowinsider there is a lovely map Available with all the Coordinates of all the items you will need to find [URL="http://wow.joystiq.com/2012/10/05/lorewalkers-easy-exalted-guide/"]LINKY![/URL] Using the Coordinates on that page and an Addon such as [URL="http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/tomtom"]tomtom[/URL] you can get all the items in a little over an hour. then its simply a case of going to a mailbox taking all the items out the post and then Accepting and handing in the quests
Ok so there is alot of things to know and do for the Tillers and for full list of information click [URL="http://www.wowhead.com/faction=1272"]here[/URL] the Outline of this faction is simple. You want to level cooking? well here's your farm go grow stuff. Once you have done the Relevant quests in and around Four Winds you are able to start the quests using your first 4 plots of land. Once you have these plots of land you can you buy seeds from the Merchant Greenfield each item you "harvest" which can only be done once a day will give you 55 rep with the Tillers. Due to server time you can harvest and then replant your crops any time after 11pm. Along with these four plots of land you also have a Selection of daily quests to do as well. Quests give between 138-493 rep per hand in as well Ironpaw Tokens which are used to Purchase cooking ingredients. These dailies reset at the standard 3am.
Every time you go up a rank with the Faction you will be able to do a short quest chain to clear an extra 4 plots of land up to a Maximum of 16 plots at Exalted.
There are Also 10 members of the tillers that you have to gain rep with individually from the starting rank of Stranger all the way up to Best Friend once you get best friends with each of them you get a nice little item from them. to get rep up with the tillers members all you have to do is a repeatable daily quest which involves cooking 5 items and handing them into each member. As well as this you will also notice "dark Soil" throughout the world in these mounds are items from "lovely apples" to "jade hares". Each member of the Tillers has a Specific type of item they like from "anything green" to Anything Natural". handing them into the correct NPC will give you 900+ rep with that person and if you hand them into the wrong one you get 500+ rep.
for an inside tip you can talk to Jogu the drunk and for a Varying amount of gold each day he will tell you what is going to grow well and will create "plump" items. Plump items contain 8 cooking Ingredients instead of the standard 5 and will also have a chance of giving you some seeds.
Once you hit Exalted with the Tillers you can go and buy a [URL="http://www.wowhead.com/item=89391"]Goat[/URL]. ^^
[SIZE="4"]Order of the Cloud Serpent[/SIZE]
This is the big ones for when it comes to mounts. This is the faction you need to firstly get your [URL="http://www.wowhead.com/item=85429"]Cloud Serpent[/URL] as well as if your a Jewel crafter you can also make your [URL="http://www.wowhead.com/item=83932"]Jewelled Panther [/URL]. There are some very nice easy quests to do to get Exalted with this faction all based in and around The Arboretum in Jade Forest. if you have levelled all of your secondary professions up to 525 or Above you will be able to do an Exalted four quests based around the secondary profession for 133/4 Rep each day. For all older players of wow reading this, This faction is the new Netherwing, Yes you guessed it! [URL="http://www.wowhead.com/item=89155"]EGGS![/URL] these eggs are few and far between and are mainly found at the high points on the Windward isle. if you click on the "EGGS!" link you will find on the comments some Macros thank you can use with tom tom to load all the locations on your mini map.
Dread Waste is the home of the Klaxxi based at Klaxxi' Vess. to unlock these dailies you need to of a fair chunk of the quests in the zone. at most you can gain 1100 rep with this faction a day. the first lot of rewards you unlock at honoured are Blacksmithing patterns. Mainly item level 463 these weapons can be good to get into the starter raids. there are also 6 epic patterns 3 chest plates and 3 Gloves one of each type Tanking Healer and Dps. At honoured and revered you get Access to the first Epic from Valor points. this is the First faction you will hit Revered with and therefore the first Rep Epics. at Honoured you can purchase an Epic Necklace one for each type of Role. at Revered you gain access to Epic Legs and Belt. At Exalted you gain access to Blue Item level 463 Weapons, Which Seems a little pointless as it will take the best part of 20+ days to gain Exalted by of which time you should of get a blue from running Heroics. the only other Buy able [URL="http://www.wowhead.com/item=85262"]Reins of the Amber Scorpion[/URL]. Also at Exalted you will receive an epic from a quest item that looks something like [URL="http://www.wowhead.com/item=90859"]this[/URL].
Golden Lotus are possibly the most important faction in this expansion mainly due to the fact that once you are Revered you unlock 2 more faction which I will get onto in a bit. So all of these quests are based in Vale of Eternal Blossom. the first lot of quests can be found at The Golden Pagoda each day and will send you up to The Golden Stairs. once these quests are down you will be send to either Mistfall village which yes is always on fire or Whitepetal Lake. these are your basic quests for Golden lotus. As you progress up to Revered you gain extra sets of quests sending you to new hubs each time.
Ok so the loot, At honoured you can buy one of five rings, one for each roll that look like [URL="http://www.wowhead.com/item=89070"]this[/URL]. At revered you can purchase an Epic [URL="http://www.wowhead.com/item=89421"]Chest[/URL] or [URL="http://www.wowhead.com/item=89342"]shoulders[/URL]. And at Exalted you can then buy a [URL="http://www.wowhead.com/item=87781"]Riding Cranes[/URL]. As I said at the start of this section once you hit Revered you unlock 2 more factions the Shado Pan and The August Celestial. for Lore reasons I'm not going to mention why you get these until Revered with the Golden Lotus but it is explained in the quests.
