|Midra with her Tiny Sporebat~Flick|
The quest for Sanguine Hibiscus is picked up at the beginning of the instance from T'shu, with the other quest -givers. You don't need any certain rep with Sporeggar before you can get it; so that is a relief. The flowers can either be picked up (by anyone) or looted off the mobs. Doing this with one other person, and with me being the only one getting the flowers, I would get a good 20-25 flowers sometimes. We were also running Underbog and a few other Outland instances trying to get transmog gear, so this made it a little less boring. For turning in 5 hibiscus you get 750 rep--that is quite the rep increase from what it was before! I do apologize though, while I was doing this I didn't think of writing a blog about it so I didn't keep my exact info on how long it took :( You can also purchase the hibiscus from the Auction House. I did get lazy towards the end and bought my last leg of flowers from there.
The second part to this is getting the currency it takes to actually purchase the sporebat after you get exalted. That currency is a glowcap--30 of them. I know right? As if being exalted isn't enough, you have to run around Zangarmarsh collecting these little things. They are not visible on the minimap if you have herabalism either and are obviously lootable by anyone. They too can be purchased from the AH if you are lucky enough to find someone selling them. It took me about half an hour to forty-five minutes to fly around and gather all 30 of these to make my purchase. I'd say totally worth it though--look at how adorable he is!
All in all, I think this is a pretty easy rep grind! Good luck to all who want this adorable little pet. Next week I will be featuring yet another plate set worn by the paladin Keledar.
