Jewelcrafting Panther Mounts

Ruby Panther Mount

If you want to craft the Jewelcrafting mounts in Mists of Pandaria there are a few things you’ll need to know. First you’ll need to level your Jewelcrafting to 600, which is the maximum in MoP.

Second, you’ll need reputation with the Cloud Serpent Riders in the Arboretum in the Jade Forest. Different levels offer different patterns.

  • Honored – Jade Panther, Sunstone Panther
  • Revered – Ruby Panther, Sapphire Panther
  • Exalted – Jeweled Onyx Panther

San Redscale sells the patterns for the Cloud Serpent Riders. He’s near the flight path.

The materials to make them are not cheap. Here are the materials for the Jade, Sunstone, Ruby, and Sapphire Panthers.

  • 4 Living Steel (Alchemists can transmute this from the already rare Trillium Bars)
  • 20 rare quality gems (From prospecting, also Alchemists can transmute. The gem color depends on which mount you are making. So Primordial Ruby for Red, etc.)
  • 2 Serpent’s eye (Created by combining the scraps leftover from your prospecting)
  • 1 Orb of Mystery (Expensive! From a vendor)

You can buy an Orb of Mystery from Big Keech in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms for 20,000 gold (18,000 with guild perk).

Big Keech isn’t so big!

The Jeweled Onyx Panther is a little different. You combine one each of the previous panther mounts to create it. So that one is going to be extremely rare, and extremely expensive.

So far in the beta I’ve only crafted the Ruby Panther. I’ll save the others for when MoP goes live.

They fly too!!!
