i've done quite a few of them. i just roll my eyes and laugh at people who think timbermaw is hard. it really, really, really isn't. even after they nerfed the rep you get form killing the mobs in winterspring and felwood, it's still a pretty sedate grind that you can do by farming the beads or whatnot at a pretty brisk clip.i did it in under 2 weeks oon a holy paladin..consortium? hardly. the zaxxas badges drop a plenty and if you grind the nagrand town reps and just keep the ogre beads, you'll get there pretty fast. i hit exalted with the kuernei in about 10 days and consortium 2 days later. again, mostly solo'ing on a non-dps class spec'd for raid healing.i finished wintersaber the weekend before 2.1 and yeah, it's right up there as worst goes. it's solitary, dull and monotonous. 3 minutes of whacking bears folowed by 4 minutes of riding (5 if you're not a paladin). repeat this 513 times (more for non-humans.)before BC, grinding steamweedle cartel faction to exalted was about the nuttiest thing i did -- took nearly 5 weeks of 2-4 hours a day grinding out ithe middle of nowhere (tanaris.) it's a bit easier now because you can free knott in DM north fairly readily now and that's pretty good faction.speaking of DM -- shen'drelar. if you didn't have exalted before BC, you're pretty damned boned now.hydraxian waterlords was a horrific grind, imo -- took nearly forever for no real good rewards.cen circle was one of my least favorite grinds, even though i did it fairly quick (finding out the timing and spawn points of the prophet = mega-rep.) ther'es a ton of stuff in silithus to give you rep -- and almost all of it seriously un-fun after about the first time. by and large, i've had no complaints about all of the 2.0/2.1 factions -- pretty easy grinds for the most part. skywing imo can either be pretty gind-ish or pretty casual -- just do the daily quest if you want the latter. that said, i actually thought the rewards for killing terokk did in the end justify the time invested (read: epic dropped, we got paid.)
