One thing you might want to do while you're in Pandaria is get rep with the Anglers faction. They sell the only water walking mount currently in the game (it's a bug), and since mounts are account wide you only have to do that once for all your characters to have access to the mount.

Agreed.

Pandaria had so much content and things to do compared to the latest expansion .

A damn ugly bug... I think I've seen a player running around on one. is there a compelling reason to have one?

It runs on water so it's great for traveling around. In the WoD expansion (no flying), I use the water bug mount and stay on the water to bypass congested areas. It's ugly but by far the most useful ground mount in the game.

Take a lot of rep, to be able to buy the bug?

You need to be Exalted with the Anglers to buy it from Nat Pagle at the wharf.

Or you can buy one in the AH I think. It sells for about 20-50k gold.

You need to be exalted but it's the easiest rep and you get it through fishing dallies.

I recommend also doing the farming dailies when you hit 90.

My toon is a fisher, but I've not done fishing since level 75 or so, when I restarted up. Will I have to level fishing up before I can do this, or are you referring to something else? Thanks!

You should be able to do the fishing dallies without having to level fishing any more.

There are three ways to get rep with the Anglers. The daily quests you know about.

If you do any dungeons or scenarios you can select Anglers as your bonus rep and get get 600 or 400 rep for the first one you do each day.

Finally there are the Nat Pagle personal rep quest starting fish; there are three of these fish that you can catch, one from fresh water, one from salt water and one from sha touched water. The Pagle fish also give Anglers rep in addition to the Nat Pagle personal rep, one of my alts who was getting Nat's Hat (a hat with a large +fishing bonus that you can get once you are best friends with Nat Pagle) got to exalted with the Anglers without doing any of their dailies. Each fish is unique, so once you've caught one you can't catch another until you've turned in the quest.

Once you get to revered with the Anglers remember to buy the reputation doubling thing they sell. Most (all?) factions in MoP sell an object that when used doubles reputation gains with them for all characters on an account.

Indeed, this mount worths the time spend to get exalted. It's very useful to be able to run on water. Well, unless you play a death knight of course.

Except Druid, I think Priests and Shamans cannot use it while on a mount, so they only get walking speed.

Would be easier to get Exalted with Klaxxi for the water walking mount than fishing. Not sure who claimed Nat Pagle rep was easy. it's a fairly heft time commitment.

It's not fast, but definitely easy
