Sha’tari Skyguard – Exalted in 7 Hours

Sha’tari Skyguard – Honored to Exalted in 7 Hours

Sha'tari Skyguard exalted reputation as retribution paladin

Every now and then, I like to kick back and do old World of Warcraft content.  After my 10,000g week, I decided to take a break from my normal routine, and knock out some older reputations I hadn’t done yet.

Since I made my Ret Paladin around 4 months after the release of Wrath of the Lich King, I had to start from scratch.  My old main was a Gnome Rogue, who had all these already done.  But me being the completionist I am, I am looking at a ton of catching up to do.  Not to mention, the Sha’tari Skyguard have 5 mounts, 1 non-combat pet, and 1 tabard as reputation rewards to count towards achievements.

So, here is how I went about doing it:

Reputation Gains (with Human Passive):



The Run

I completed this in 2 days, spread out in runs of 2 hours, 2 hours, 2 hours, and 1 hour.  It was very easy at level 80, especially with all my Ret Pally goodness and absolutely ZERO downtime.  Here’s the routine, which has to be done several times…I think I killed Terrok 5 or 6 times by the time I was through.

  1. Get enough Shadow Dust to turn in for an Elixir of Shadows. This allows you to see additional undead Skettis that drop Time-Lost Scroll.
  2. Kill every Skettis you see for dust and scrolls.  Dust can be turned in for more elixirs and rep, and the scrolls will be used to summon Darkscreecher Akkarai, Karrog, Gezzarak the Huntress, and Vakkiz the Windrager.  It takes 10 scrolls to summon one of these mini-bosses once, who when killed gave me 110 rep per kill.
  3. Each mini-boss drops an item, and when each is collected from all 4, they can be turned in for a Time-Lost Offering that will summon Terrok in the middle island.
  4. Kill Terrok to complete the chain.  Once he is killed, the rep will be awarded on the kill, and no further quest can be turned in.  Time to rinse and repeat.

One note on killing Terrok is when he gets to about 25% health, he pops a bubble and is immune to all damage.  You have to last for about 30 seconds or so until the Skyguard plant ablue smoke flare somewhere nearby on the island.  Drag Terrok to the flare and the Skyguard will belt him with blue flame to remove the shield, allowing you to finish him off.  Do it quickly, or he will pop another bubble and you will have to drag him to another flare.  I did occasionally have to pop Lay on Hands for this fight after his bubble wore off and he went into a Frenzy.

The time consumption is mainly used to loot scrolls for summoning mini-bosses.  By the fifth or sixth kill of Terrok, I forget how many, I had finally dinged my way into exalted.  Don’t forget to kill all the normal Skettis too so that you can continue to loot Shadow Dust for rep turn-ins.

I realize that since I am a human ret paladin, my rep gain is 10% faster…but it shouldn’t be that much longer for those who have normal rep gains.  Maybe an additional hour or so.   Either way, this can be a very quick reputation to knock out if you haven’t completed it already.

    I just did this. It took me from 4:30 ish to 12:07 server time. I am glad that I finally got the motivation to do it all in one go. Thanks for the guide.
