Jewelcrafting Onyx Panther Mount Guide
Jewelcrafting Mount Guide
The Jeweled Onyx Panther Mount is hailed as the gold sink of Mists of Pandaria.
Jewelcrafters can craft 4 rare panthers: Sunstone, Jade, Ruby and Sapphire, and an epic panther mount, the Jeweled Onyx.
All are Bind on Equip.
All require expensive mats and reputation with Order of the Cloud Serpent to buy the pattern.
These are both ground riding, and flying mounts.

Jewelcrafting Mount Mats Costs
Orb of Mystery 20,000g
Only sold by one NPC, Big Keech. Big Keech is a goblin, not affiliated with any faction (sorry, no discounts!) and he patrols the road north of the Golden Pagoda in Vale of Eternal Blossoms (ie near the new capital city).
Living Steel is created by alchemists with Transmute: Living Steel. Mats are either 6 Trillium Bars (daily cooldown) or 3 Trillium Bars & 3 Spirit of Harmony (no cooldown). You need 4 of these per panther mount.
Serpents Eyes are made by combining ten pieces of Sparkling Shard. Jewelcrafters get these when prospecting Mists of Pandaria ore. Kyparite, Black Trillium Ore, White Trillium Ore, Ghost Iron Ore.
The final part for the mounts is 20 rare gems in the right color.
I love the new Panther Mounts and have already bought my first. Too eager to wait for my reputation to unlock, I paid for another jewelcrafter to make it. I have better things to do all day than hunt Onyx Eggs for Cloud Serpent reputation. However, now my ego has been satisfied, I will wait to create the Jeweled Onyx Panther mount for myself. Only another 2-3 weeks of faction grinding left *sigh*
Which colour will you get first? May I recommend the yellow because “yellow is the new red” and the yellow mounts are currently underpriced in the AH.
