August Celestials - No Exalted Quest?

General Discussion
Any reason these guys didn't get their own exalted finisher quest like the rest of the factions? They take the longest (# of days) to complete, but you don't get anything cool for finishing them.

Finishing Shadow Pan and getting rewarded with a mini boss fight and a black serpent mount was awesome. A free ring/neck for Klax/lotus is also cool. Why did celestials get left out of the party?
being exalted with them is awesome enough apparenty

Cause every rep doesn't need the same function. Some have a bonus quest, some have bonus loot, some just have exalted. It's called variety, it's okay.

It's called lame. The exalted quests are the a great addition in MoP and every other faction rewards you with something ta exalted besides the privilege of finishing the rep. The celestials just seem to have been forgotten/left out for whatever reason.
Well they do offer a Cloud Serpent dont they?

I disagree - the absense of variety would be lame

So, you think MV would be better off if, say, Elegon didn't drop any loot because yay variety?

...

And yeah, you get to purchase the 9K mount. No different than buying the shadowpan tigers, other colors of cloud serpent etc. But Shadowpan has the free Onyx serpent, free serpent from could serps, free epic ring/neck from klax/lotus, 4th farm plot from tillers.

Celestials are omitted from the model for some reason.

The variety would come in the form of the pet, mount, or quest itself. Getting nothing is just...well, getting nothing. Nothing more lame than that.

you get to be exalted, that is awesome in itself for that particular faction - which IS something and varied

I'm exalted with 50ish other factions, the majority of which had no final quest. .. Just like the Celestials. That isn't variety at all.

It's awesome! You have to grind one faction to get access to their quest content, then you grind for them to get the serpent, and then you get to grind another faction for the right to ride it! Three times the fun!

to be fair, if you aren't already exalted with the cloud serpents before you even unlock the august celestials, you're doing it wrong
Cool I'm not a special need every achivo snow flake you saved me hours of dailies Don't need to do it cool!
the exalted function of celestials is to use the lovely alani mount finally an clear a spot of invetory
Really, only very few outside of raid reps have something free for exalted. Title with Shattered Sun; amazing ring for Violet Eye / Sands / Ashen; discount on Mammoth for Dalaran; Furbolg Form for Timbermaw; title for both Argent reps, and both Cenarion reps; and that's about it pre-Mists. Be happy you get anything for the others at all.

Which can't be good enough according to your own standards of variety because other factions have that as well.

Except every other MoP faction awards a freebie reward and quest at Exalted. It's not a great comparison to measure celestials against old world reps.

Is there some reason *not* to award something fun for exalted like every other mop faction? It's the one thing about rep grinds that mop got right imo. Incentivizing for completion = good design.
Eh, I get the feeling that the August Celestials will start playing a bigger part as the expansion unfolds and that we will see something more for our efforts down the line other than what the quartermaster offers.
You get the pattern for the 28-slot bag at exalted don't you? That's pretty important.
You get the epic bag pattern worth gorillions of gold. If that isn't an ample reward, you're an entitled child.

It also lets you ride the Alani mount as well as the one from the AC vendor. You get TWO MOUNTS.
