Is there any reason to do these quests if you're not going for the achievement, or pets? Does visiting elders grant Exp, Rep, or gold?

The XP and gold (or lack thereof) granted from elders seems to change every year, so we'll have to wait and see what it'll be this year.

Before Cataclysm, the Elders and their quests were among the few sources of Horde/Alliance reputation (the base reputation, under which the cities are grouped) but these days, it's just the Exp and Gold.

At level 84, I'm gaining 28,980 xp per elder (no heirlooms), plus a bit of Alliance and guild rep. It's a slow way to level due to travel time, but decent enough if you're not in the mood to quest or you still have areas you need to explore. :)

You've probably already found this out yourself, but the elders only give gold if you are level-capped; otherwise, they grant XP that scales to level. If you are looking to get more guild rep, wear your guild rep-boosting tabard when you visit the elders!
