Alani Mount Rep?

Customer Support
Why does http://us.battle.net/wow/en/item/90655 have such a high rep needed that you not only have to get GL rep to revered first to unlock the AC rep to even grind it to Exalted? The farming low chance drop crystals alone should be payment enough to use this mount.
I have to agree here. This is a real low blow. Never mind the fact that to ride this mount you have to get Cloudserpents exalted. Or that the shard drop rates are so low. Or that everyone and their mothers are working to farm shards for this as well. Or that to really farm these you have to deal with people all day long trying to tag the same mobs just for their dailies. But then you have to make it require a reputation that you can't even unlock for several weeks. And THEN make it require exalted with that rep. Which based on every other Pandarian reputation grind, it too will take several weeks.

I just don't understand it Blizzard. Can you please just give an explanation.
You'll want to ask over in General.
Hard-to-get mount is extremely hard-to-get, news at 11. Seriously, why is this a problem? A lot of things are really hard to get, and are extreme luxury items. Yeah, it's hard, but it's supposed to be hard. =/ I don't really see the problem, honestly.
I remember when I first got Reins of the Bronze Drake, back in early Wrath. It sat in my bags for a while, as a reminder and incentive to me to finish farming up the gold to earn the riding skill necessary to use it.

Same thing applies to Reins of the Thundering Ruby Cloud Serpent. If you get the drop, you must have already farmed a LOT (the shards are VERY rare) - so a little more grinding won't be too bad for you. And with the hotfix to rep gains, it'll be even easier.

I don't think you see the difference here. Leveling just from 70 to 80 you got well over the few thousand needed for the faster riding. And that's just from quest gold. The complaint here is not that it is hard. But the fact that something hard has been done and the only reason the reward is not available is because of the gating of reputation that Blizzard has put in.

Even with the "double" reputation gain from revered to exalted this will barely lessen the time. I don't mean to be rude but given your own experience with rep grinds (particularly the longer ones) I honestly don't think you understand.
