You start out with a few quests to test if you're worthy to become a Cloud Serpent Rider. You're rewarded with your choice of colored eggs - blue, green or yellow. Be careful which you pick because that will be the color of the mount you receive at the end of the process.
You then start the rep grind to get to exalted. There are 3 basic dailies. So far, they've been related to fighting off the Saurok that have been preying on the Cloud Serpents at Windward Isle. They're granting 450-600 rep each before perks.
Here is where it gets evil. There are 4 additional dailies, one related to each secondary profession. It looks like you might be able to get the cooking daily completed by getting the needed item from someone who cooks. You definitely need to be able to fish for the fishing daily. You definitely need First Aid for the First Aid daily (I tried just healing the injured hatchling, didn't work). And you need to have Archaeology to dig for the special Serpentrider Relics at your normal digsites (I'm getting 1 per dig, which is 6 per site so I need to dig 2 full sites to complete the daily - good to pair up with Lorewalker daily which still isn't granting rep >.<). These grant 125 rep each - not much compared to the normal dailies but still enough to give faster rep gains to get to exalted.
Not sure if it's bugged but I'm already at 4450/12000 after 2 sets of dailies and once set of secondary profession dailies. I didn't think to check to see how much rep the initial quests granted.
I just started doing random emotes at my hatchling for the fun of it.
It likes to be petted. It nudges my arm affectionately if I hug it. And it loves me, too!
