Well, sold off a few spare Panderan Elementals, and had the good timing of being able to pick up some reasonably priced World drops.
Got the Clockwork Gnome started, and need to probably use Pandaria to finish due to RNG not helping with Dwarf sites.
Initial rush on 'Bloodsoaked Invitations' has diminished, so I put a bid on one.

The Gruntling himself is account wide, and you WILL get the Squire on Alliance characters.
Pony Bridle is NOT account wide and has to be earned seperately on each character.
Stun stun stun stun stun.
Cockroach seemed to do best against him from what I had.
Chose water first, but got Earth after the first daily.
It's an elemental, which means it ignores weather effects.
Despite the fragility, Stoneskin allows her to ignore most DoTs, so it's a good trade off.
I have gotten around to leveling this one in Kun Lai. Granted, a lot of Critters and low power multi-hits, but at 15 it's taking out 2 25s before I have to switch out.
I've found his Blistering Cold can be stacked with Exposed Wounds (or presumably Wild Magic) for massive damage. Of course, the ease of removing it by pet swap makes it less than stellar. You can take someone by surprise with it, but not worth making a strategy around.
Just to clarify from older posts:
Achievement is now a checklist.
It requires the Guild to have 55 Unique reputations spread amongst all members.
'Best Friends' do not count. I also think the 'Split' Pandaren faction does not count. (I can't find them in the list.) This may change later.
I pretty much got this for my Guild (which is almost dead). Got Aldor and Scryers on seperate characters, though another guildy got Wolvar and Ashen Verdict.
Had been running this instance for the Reputation achieves when I got this. Last 3 runs in here, I saw 2 Hatchlings and 2 Hawkstriders.
Don't switch abilities. Ever. First three are the best. Moonfire, Dragonbreath, Ancient Blessing.
For PvE Battles, this will leave most enemies at half health while you're nearly full.
For PvP, your milage may vary. A smart opponent will open with Mechanical or Humanoid if they have it, or weather changer of their own to counter the Moonfire/Blessing combo.
Wonder if they're going to do a 'crossover battle' with Skylanders.
