The point of the meta was supposed to be challenging enough and/or long enough that you would have Order of the Cloud Serpent exalted by the time you received them to begin with. You won't even see heroic Sha of Fear killed for months, which, by then, should be plenty of time to do dailies for them and farm a few eggs. There's no true -rush- except for if you plowed through all of these, and even then, you should have known immediately just by LOOKING AT THE REWARD that you would need Cloud Serpent flying in order to use it to begin with.
Why prioritize getting the mount if you know full well you need the flying first? What logic is there in that? Why does it immediately become a broken system when you can't have your way when the people that actually farmed the eggs and made the groups once they were able to use the mount can use them before you can?
This isn't 5.2. I'd like to actually use the mount before all the shmoes in full raid gear can EZ-mode their way through.
Also, there's a cap on how many charms you can get and I'm way over that. The dailies provide less gold than I'd get just fishing for the same time period.
And what's with the sarcasm? I spent my time doing things like learning all the cooking specializations and doing dailies for Klaaxi and Golden Lotus and farming Motes of Harmony and saving up for living steel. I was rather hoping to knock out the achiev early and get on with actual raid content. There's a difference between work and c_ckblocking. This is firmly on the side of the latter.
There's a cap on how many charms you can have, but you should be using charms every time you kill a boss (including Sha of Anger and Galleon for weekly drops) in the first place. I'm sitting on four weeks worth of lesser charms personally, but I'm still doing dailies to ensure that no matter what happens, I'll have enough for the upcoming week.
Most of the Cloud Serpent dailies aren't even that bad either - you can fish up the Golden Carp in conjunction with your Angler dailies, you can farm up Motes of Harmony while killing the Saurok, making some bandages with the millions of cloth that drop off of everything you're farming anyways isn't doing anything, and once you get to revered, there's the Sky Race for extra Valor, there's always farming eggs - not ALL of them in one sitting, you could just as easily work on getting 3-5 per day as a boost to speed up the rep grind.
It's very forgiving considering you can literally farm up the eggs in a single day if you truly wanted to. The charms and valor you get from quests are suddenly worth nothing because everyone needs the flying right now and can't wait a week to hit exalted by just doing dailies.
