I just saved a bunch of money on my riding skill by switching to Horde So easy a Cow-man can do it.:haha: A side effect of faction changing, quests count toward loremaster doesn't carry over much but FACTION earned converts to an equal/opposite side. So by switching, I was already sitting at around 3K Revered with Orgrimmar and in a few short hours did all of Durotar and some selected Barrens quests for Org faction, and BAM! hit exalted and saved 1000 gold off the 5k artisan riding cost when I go buy it in Shadowmoon Valley from the Org rep trainer. Even getting exalted with Thunder Bluff will be damned easy if I wanted to since I'm already at half way there, and probably only need to do Mulgore, even on my first Tauren and on Stilgaard it was very tough to get that high without tons of cloth and those seedling turn-ins.
