This drops in the Underbog in Coilfang Reservoir from many of the mobs and can also be harvested off the ground. It's a great way to get Sporeggar rep.
Supposedly it's possible for a Rogue or Druid to solo-stealth into the Underbog and grab some of the spawns without aggro'ing anything. I'm gonna try it as soon as my Druid reaches level 64.
List of Sporeggar reputation rewards:
I've been solo stealth running these in Underbog (70 rogue) since honoured with Spores to get to exalted, and all I have to say is. This is absolutely worth it.
There are some that are a little to close to mobs and will attack you when you go for them, but after a run or two you should have a good feeling for what's safe and what is not. Pack lots of flash powder. If you're close to water though you can run into the water to lose agro and restealth, but be careful... the fish are stealth detectors.
I suggest for a path to pick up what you can in a starting area, but don't panic if you don't see some of your regular spawns not around. I've been unsuccessful in trying to pick up the chest close to the entrance ;.;
From there start heading up to the naga, you'll find a couple more on the way. Now, if you want you can start heading back and you might find a few more have spawned in the beginning but probably not as it's pretty quick to get this far.
If you don't turn back, you -can- get by the naga. Simply sprint (starting in stealth) and vanish after you've made it a few feet to the ramp on the inside. And if you haven't gotten dotted or something on the way, they stealth detectors will leave you alone :D Here you can pick up the chest (make sure to distract the patrol over here) and continue on. There aren't many Hibi's beyond this point but you'll get about 3-5... what's important though is while you were waisting time here and you come out the end of the instance you're back at the beginning, and all the beginning spawns you might have missed, will be up for sure!
Snag em and you'll probably finish the run with 15 total, and you won't have to worry about the instance locking you out because of to many reset by spending a bit of time getting the deeper ones!
There are a fixed number of locations where these spawn. They aren't always there when you first enter the instance. After a short period of time they will appear. They must be on some type of timer.
A 70 mage can solo farm these as well. Kill the first two mobs (single pulls) at the beginning. Use invis to get by the next pack of 3 and hug the left wall around toward the water, pop out in the corner there.
Then hug the edge of the water to make your way around and you can pick up a few spawn points. Reset and repeat.
If the land mobs agro you jump in the water and after a moment they will reset, just be careful of the fish, find a safe spot in the water you can run back to before you do anything risky.
Above info is correct, as fairly well fera druid im able to solo 2 steath detecting mobs very easy mix of blues and few kara epix, just tank them to death. Got 30 of them in around 1h on 1st try. Should be better after some practice i hope.
This can be easily done by a 62 rogue. I suggest running with only rings, trinkets, cape, and throwing dagger though. I can get usually 5-8 per run. Deffinatly bring lots of flash powder. If you have the duskbat drape you can drop from the walkway past Hungerfen down to first level and remain in stealth.
I don't know if it's allowed to post guidelines on external sites. If so, please excuse my lack of knowledge and delete this post :)
But this guide on thottbot seems to be very good, so I don't want to leave you here without it :)
Guide on Thottbot
THIS GUIDE WAS DONE FOR TBC! NEW GUIDE IS UP FOR WOTLK! THIS GUIDE WILL BE LEFT HERE FOR INFO!
I'm glad you liked it.
Okey, so I'm now Exalted with Sporeggar, and I got to tell you, this is one of the easiest rep to grind for rogues and druids.
There is 13 spawns for Sanguine Hibiscus, but you can only herb 12 of those places (In some rare cases, you can only herb 11, as one spawns to close to the adds.)
The good thing about these plants is that when you herb one, another one will spawn. So for each run you will end up with 12 herbs.
--> PICTURE <--
1. Stand against the wall and you will be ok. (SAFE)
2. Wait for the Sporebats to fly away (SAFE)
3. Wait for the Sporebats to fly away (SAFE)
4. This one is the spawn that sometimes wont be able to herb. It depends on what spawn that is closest to the herb. When you aproach, stand just as close so he wont agro. When he walks away from the plant, run forward and herb it ASAP! (Semi-SAFE)
5. Stand at the water, when the Sporebats fly past, run up and herb (SAFE)
6. Watch out for Bog Lord (SAFE)
7. Just herb it (Super SAFE)
8. Watch out for patrol (SAFE)
9. This spawn is impossible to herb (NON SAFE)
10. Just herb it (Super SAFE)
11. Watch out for Patrol, they fly past this spawn 2 times, so take it directly after they have flewn by (SAFE)
12. Watch out for Bog Lord (SAFE)
13. Stand at the edge, behind the Bog Lord. When he walks forward, run up and herb (SAFE)
Follow the numbers, as this rout will be the easiest and safest. The big red rings show you the hardest parts that you should not walk in, no matter what. Her there is to many mobs, and patrols from every way, and you will most likely die if you try to take a shortcut.
The spawn places is random, but all 13 places will spawn in a timespan of 10-15mins, which is very good. If you always walk out with 12 herbs every run, you will always reset the instance without running out of time, and therefor that 5instances / hour rule wont apply as when your on your 5th run, you will have been there for atleast an hour already.
Felicia <Unknown Entity>, Sunstrider-EU
This was pre-WotLK, lvl 80's can without a doubt solo the instance, atleast the trash, so all spots are now safe.
Nice guide really ! What was your level when u gathered em? I couldnt get more than 6 or so each run even though i looked at yout picture - some of them just werent there. I also got a problem with reseting the instance - what do i need to do that?
Thx and bye!
you can get the ones past the stealth seers if you do a little tricky jumping on the crack to the left of them ;)
There is ofc some flaws in the guide. I was lvl 70 at the time, gear is not important (I ran naked to not risk repair bills) I guess you could start using the guide around lvl 68-69~.
Also, I am a druid, and thus I don't have vanish. I suppose a rogue could get some more of the spawns with a good timing of the vanish.
And Wokki, about flowers aint being there. There is an amount of spawns in the instance. I have not had the chance to check how many spawns there is behind the guards that sence stealth, but lets say there is 20 spawnpoints in the instance. On all those 20 spawnpoints, 10 or so is always spawned in the instance. So when you pick one, it will spawn on another spot.
Lets say when you enter, there is only 6 out of 13 that have spawned, if you pick those 6 spawns, just sit tight and wait for them to spawn in another spot. Also, once you have gathered one spot, don't sit and wait for a flower to spawn on that spot again, as it will take a to long time.
You would be able to get all the 12(11) spawns within a 15 minutes time, and be out and reset it. To reset the instance, you just walk out of the instance, rightclick your portrait and chose "Reset all instances".
I'm fairly certain that these don't respawn anymore, so after you do a run, you now need to reset the instance to spawn another set of them.
Droprate of these by the monsters in Underbog is very low. In a group i only got 1 per 2 runs.
I harvested most of them by just stealthing past patrols. I think there are a little under 10 of them in Underbog. I could be wrong ofc.

(Repeatable for 750 Rep)
Just to note you can farm them as a Rogue at least, at lvl 63. I did it on my rogue to get the rep reward dagger. You can't get all spawns but 5-9 is a good amount and it takes a certain degree of patience and judgement aswell. Good fun.
If you have a the Rocket Boots Xtreme, after the first boss and half way to the Naga you should notice the cliff edge to the left. You can jump there with the boots and pick up the Hibiscus. Then go to towards the left tunnel where the Black stalker is, should pick up 2 more if your lucky then drop down and your at entrance :)
Just thought I'd add that on my 70 Rogue I can get the one that spawns behind The Black Stalker (don't think this was mentioned so far) by distracting him at his furthest point in patrol, then looting at max range.
I've been soloing the instance on my t4/t5 prot warrior. All the bosses are skippable -- the first is far enough away from the bridge that he won't agro, the second you can jump into the water to avoid him, the hunter boss you can simply walk past, and black stalker has a wide enough path that even without having a rogue's distract trick handy you have more than enough time and room to run past him to the exit/entrance. That said you can also take them down too.
Your amount of hibiscus collected per run can easily double or triple from drops from mob kills. I walked away from 1.5 runs with over 50 of 'em just this past weekend. Never mind the chance for greens/blues to vendor/shard.
When I was first doing this I was concerned that the bats closer to the hunter boss would be a potential problem because of all the fears but to my surprise and delight they don't fear at all when you're the only person in the instance. I don't even have to resort to berserker rage, trinkets, or such to contend with it.
It's AH-able, correct?
These exists in real life too!:
just a fun footnote :) Check out the link, i found it quite funny
To be fair,
is a genus of plants and
is the color of the flower (reddish).
So, Sanguine Hibiscus is simply translated "Reddish Flower".
These can also be traded, if you find someone who want to and have the money ;D
Thus, if you don't have time, you can still get the Sporeggar reputation if you have enough money.
And please, if you are going to downrate me, just tell me why.
Sanguine Hibiscus respawns in the same instance after some time.
Keep into account that if you are doing the heroic UB or normal one and you do a full run you can get hibiscus twice.
In fact at the end of the run you can run again in the same instance without resetting and you get quickly the hibiscus spawned in the meanwhile.
Otherwise you can buy hibiscus at Action House, but it's not so cheap getting exalted.
Hibiscus Farming to get exalted (from neutral):
6000 honor points
, that is to say 8 x 5 =
12000 honor points
, that is to say 16 x 5 =
21000 honor points
, that is to say 28 x 5 =
With my level 70 sub rogue I'm able to grab 18 of these per run.
6 of which come after the stealth breaking naga.
Distract the second Underbog Lord when he is as close to The Black Stalker's room as possible and then there is one more in TBS's room
(my first post w00t)
For those of you who are able to AOE grind, such as prot paladins and maybe druids/warriors?, you can farm these things very easily in Underbog, non heroic. Simply kill the various mobs/pats up until the Naga part, and skipping Hungarfen if you are not able to kill him efficiently. The mobs have a high chance of dropping Sanguine Habiscus, and if you look around behind you as you loot them from the ground, there's a high chance that more nodes will spawn behind you.
A single run takes me, as a Prot Paladin, about 30 minutes to complete, and I can net upwards of 25-30 Habiscus per run. It's incredibly efficient to get Sporeggar rep up this way.
And this isn't even taking into account the gold you make from trash drops, the greens/blues that you find, various mining/herbing nodes, and the absolute lack of PvP interference.
Since 3.0, ANY 70 with decent gear can solo UB normal. As a prot pala, i find that SoWisdom, combined with JoLight keeps me going without any mana/hp breaks. The only boss i skip is the Hydra-type; Ghaz'an. He does a stacking nature damage DoT that eventually becomes unhealable solo. But, out of each run, i walk away with around 28 Sanguine Hibiscus, sometimes more, sometimes less.
Just a tip; after clearing, go back through the instance and look for other spawns of it. I think you'll find that at least 4 of them will have respawned in another place.
I farmed those flowers very easy with my druid 70. After few run I was able to recognize what node were safe and what not.
I completed my exalted reputation from friendly to exalted in about 6 hours of farming, in just one day and I was also doing other things in real life ( I am a mother and I have to look after two kids and a family :) ). So I suggest this way to gain reputation to all player who have a rogue or a druid. Person above me have already wrote all good suggestion to do it in a better way.
Only one tip: for all my trips in Underbog I gathered herbs wearing NO GEAR, only tabard.... So, in case of aggro and death, I didn't have repaired my items, I did not spent one coin... Try it!
Dwarves can track the objects that you can get these from with Find Treasure tracking.
70 feral druid named winterwine blackhand
have no problem soloing most of the instance
3rd and 4th bosses i usually avoid
definitely an easy way to farm sanquine
As a 80 restoration-specced Shaman I find these are a much more efficient way to farm Sporeggar reputation than the "Now That We're Still Friends" quest.
Even though the naga quest only requires killing 18 mobs, they're so spread out, that me finding/killing those 18 mobs requires around 8-10 minutes per turn-in (even though I only cast 2 LB and a ES to kill any of them, no down time).
Running through Underbog (Normal) I can get 20 of these per run without killing any mobs other than Muselek (there's one in his crevice), and the Black Stalker (he has a 100% drop chance on these), and only take 20 minutes per 'clear'.
As an 80 Disc priest this is a breeze. I just hit pretty much all the spawning locations, if I get too close to mobs just holy nova them down and hope for extra hibiscus, think about killing the bosses but usually dont, and mind soothe muselek to get the one next to him, and get like 25ish per run. Power Infusion and Pain Suppression are also nice if you get in a dangerous situation.
I soloed a Sanguine Hibiscus run in Normal Underbog as a lvl 80 protection paladin, soloed almost all the mobs and bosses easily in the dungeon (apart from the naga, because I didn't think they would drop any of the flowers) and picked up all of the Sanguine Hibiscus spawns as I could find and managed to collect a good load of 28 flowers at the end. I Could of got way over 30 if I killed *everything* in the dungeon.
Took me 7 runs as a level 80 Protection Paladins to get from halfway through Friendly to Exalted, only turning in those.
I would usually get between 35 to 45 per run, when clearing all of the fungal mobs, as well as looting every single spawn(including running through the instance after clearing it, to grab the later-spawning ones).
One run was about 20 minutes, so it's quite easy to reach Exalted this way.
(7-8 is probably the average number of runs needed, but some might be able to do it in six, while others have to run it nine times)
My gear was the best available from heroics, as well as the ring from Anub'Rekhan.
I've been doing this on my 80 warrior, just basic blue and some crafted epics all tank gear I'm able to kill everything here no issues. My suggestion is if you can kill everything do it up to first boss, I skip first and second bosses then kill the last two since they seem to be sitting on some spawn points usually. Nothing past first boss except bog lords between 3rd and 4rth boss will drop this so if you can skip them (You can if you are smart)
Another thing to keep in mind someone in here already said it but to clarify picking one will force one to spawn at another empty spawn point(Or at least by picking it allows some kind of timer to start leading to a plant spawning on an empty point somewhere) They don't seem to double up so if you picked one there earlier skip it later. I just did this place and had the whole first area before first boss empty and no spawns on the ground there but when I went to exit I notice one then another and the whole room was full so a second lap if you did a decent clear may be worth it.
As an 80 lock, im grinding this item for rep.
Best way to do it without defeating the first boss is to pick up any spawns on the first level, as well as down EVERYTHING on that level.
I ended up with 25 from 1 clearing of the first level.
Then simply zone out reset and go again.
My 2p. I am shadow p, lvl 73, went to the instance 2 times on my own. First time got 6 of them, second - 10 (mobs+harvest). Did only the very beginning of the instance, killing groups of 3. The reason I went for them is they are very expensive on my server, 7-8g each at least. I keep buying any of them that come up for 1-4g and sell 8+
80 Mage, I've learned that these also drop from random trash, mostly near the beginning. Good and easy, the Gaints have a wide aggro range though. Only problem is time, being a non-herbalist I've found that it's faster to do the repeatable quest to kill Naga in Zangmarsh for 750 rep each, as well as Fertile Spores for 750 rep each. Both of these are faster and will take you to Exalted.
Just farmed these to get from honored to exalted with Sporeggar.
As a level 80 prot pally in mainly 25 man gear it was quite easy, can just solo the trash in a matter of seconds.
Did a full run of Underbog and looted 39, 22 of which were just up to the first boss.
So i farmed until just past the 1st boss and back to the door because the ones on the ground can respawn in different spots. Least i got from 1 run just past 1st boss was 18 most was 26 only took me about 3 hours to get the rep i needed, about 15 mins a run.
The easiest way to farm these is by doing underbog. Its even easier if you are a dwarf, because "Find treasure" works on the hibiscus
One of these just dropped for me off a trash mob in Steamvaults.
doing a full run, abt 20 misn id say, i get 35 hibiscus solid. Wasnt able to push the number beyond that, and i have to say that the thrash u sell and the pet + tabard at the end r well worth it, as is another rep at exalted...
At 5250 rep a runs u only need 4 runs to get from revered to exalted... and 3 runs from honored to revered, and 2 runs from friendly to honored. Id say that 10 runs is all it took, but i think its even less. 39.000 means 8 runs, 7 if u do the UB qs.
Time for an updated verision on my guide on the Hibiscus. I wanted to become exalted with my Death Knight and doing TBC instances in WotLK is a hard thing to manage, atleast on my server. I rushed up to 80 and started over with my farming again.
This guide is for lvl 80's, but by all means; Everyone that can solo bosses with 75.000hp, this guide is for you aswell.
The big difference from my last guide is that at lvl 80 you will clear the whole instance and therefor grabbing the spawnpoints on the other side of the nagas. I ran a couple of runs and are kinda sure that this is all spawnpoints in the instance.
So, lets begin shall we!
THIS IS THE NEW, IMPROVED MAP
both works for easier locating the spawnpoints)
First off you start killing your way thru the 13 first spawnpoints, kill everything on the bottom floor as they all have a chance on dropping hibiscuses. If you can't find all the 13 spawnpoints while you kill the trashmobs, you should just continue anyways, as we will get back to that later. Kill
aswell, as he can drop a hibiscus.
Try to ignore as much nagas as you possibly can, as these dont drop any hibiscus at all. Jump down the water and kill
in the water as he can drop a hibiscus and start looking for new spawnpoints (
blue spawnpoints are the spawnpoints on the upper part of the instance
You should try to ignore the mobs here aswell, as they don't drop hibiscuses.
The areas marked as red on the mad is deadzones that don't drop any hibiscuses, just grab the spawnpoints there and move forward
, even thou he dont drop any, there is a spawnpoint just behind him. Continue killing the big
and also kill
The Black Stalker
for a chance on some more hibiscuses. When this is done, you should jump down to the start again and run back to those spawnpoints you didn't find the first time. In one run, every spawnpoint will have an hibiscus, so you should net 20 hibiscuses just from spawnpoints.
Each run net me around 40 to 50 (30 at worst, up to 60/70 at best) and a run takes around 15-20 minutes. With this guild you will most likely go from Friendly to Exalted with just 5-6 runs if you don't get to unlucky!
Good luck with grabing your
If you're a Dwarf, don't forget to use
to help look for the Sanguine Hibiscus.
Im wondering, are the drops increased on heroic?
I have been running this with an 80 hunter and an 80 pally together we do the whole instance and every run we get 15 a piece they drop of of the bats as well as being pickable.
Pretty easy for 63 rogue.
First off pick the very first one and head right, then around the rock that leads up to the first boss, 2 shrubberies usually spawn there. Then another one might spawn right near the ramp leading to the first boss, pick it up, vanish, since you'll surely get agro. Then up the ramp, another one usually there. Past the boss and pass the bridge, another 3 there, one is tricky with bog dude guarding it, just wait till he turns around and faces away from you and pick the shrubbery up, if you have 3 camouflage taken, like I have, you'll be able to restealth just in time before he turns back to you, otherwise you'll need another vanish. Then I drop down to the entrance area, by the water, another one usually there, pick it up and vanish, then head out of the instance. Reset, rinse and repeat 5 times.
Each time usually takes around 5 minutes and yields 7-8 shrubberies each. When you're no longer able to reset instances, head out and kill the sporebats, the great thing about those, is that they are skinnable, and relative to their level, they drop a lot of leather and very few scraps, so as rogue/LW you get the spores and knothide as well. Kill those for an hour and then just head back to Underbog.
The other week i decided to do as much rep grinding as i could, due to the impending release of the Cataclysm update and everything becomes a feat of strength, i wanted to actually say i had done it, before it all got updated. Anyway i found that Sporegarr was my lowest rep and decided to leave that till last. I need not have worried, Get your but in to underbog. You can clear up to the ramp where the Naga are, just after the first boss ( you dont need to kill the boss its not worth the effort) and you can make at least 25 hibiscus from looting the bodies plus the ones you pick up on the way.
To do this clear took me around 15 mins, then i walked back to the entrance and picked up the odd one that had respawned. After about an hours work i had 115 Hibiscus, and handing them in netted me 17250 Rep. Now compare that to the drop rate of the Cenarion Circle and the Kurnei rep grind and you can see it's a damn site better. It took me just a little under 2 Hours to get from friendly to Exalted as a Level 80 Paly Tank. The easiest one i have ever rep ground ever and i was thinking it was going to be my hardest. :)
just got 37 from a single FULL clear (except for naga dudes) as a lvl 80 ret pally, kill every mob before nagas, while there are some later on I'd be faster to jump to the water and out of instance and reset and repeat it, also with Thanksgiving buff you get +10% more rep which DOES stack with human racial, and you'll be able to turn in for 900 rep which is quite sweet ^^
I just wanted to add my experience farming these for Rep. Was on my LvL 80 Hunter went BM spec so i could use my Rhino (probably not needed). First thing, KILL EVERYTHING, trying to dodge and avoid fights is harder then just mowing everything down.
Second thing is that it doesnt really seem to be worth it to venture into the Naga area and beyond. Ive gotten to where I just stop at the last bog giant right b4 the Naga start.
Grinding up to the last Bog Giant was netting me 20-35 Sanguine Hibiscus per run depending how lucky I got on the drops and respawns of the herbed ones, and was only taking me around 15min or so to clear all the trash to this point.
Going beyond that point to the end of the dungeon was netting me 5-15 extra but was taking me another 20 minutes to clear. So just running back and starting over turned out to be better, for me.
However if your also looking to farm up some BoE Greens and Netherweave and arent in a hurry Id say finish the whole run, youll get your 40-50 Hibiscus, plus the Naga and their slaves drop cloth and it seems like the Green drop rate is higher in the Naga and beyond, but that could just be my imagination. Hope some of this was helpful.
Also drops off Bog Overlords in The Steamvault. Obviously this isn't an alternative to running Underbog for the Hibiscus but if you, like me, are running Steamvault for Cenarian Expedition rep and aren't exalted with Sporeggar yet be sure to keep any Hibiscus you find! I ended up with about 30 of them grinding from Revered > Exalted with CE. That's easily 10%-20%+ of the farming for Sporeggar rep done while farming CE rep.
On my hunter I've been getting between 30-40 a run, sometimes more depending on drop rate. If you're a level 80, I would suggest just walking through the Naga section for the handful or two of Hibiscus that can be picked up in the wasp hall. I wouldn't bother killing anything in there because none of them actually drop the plants, but at level 80 it's easy enough to walk right by them. Don't forget to grab the one on the end of the left hand path after Claw, but don't fall in. It's a long run back.
I know a lot of these posts are from Burning Crusade, but for me, as of 3.3.3, I just started farming the sanguine hibiscuses, hibisci? Whatev. Anyways, started farming this morning, and within two full runs, I farmed 55. Really easy farm, imo, I'll have to continue later though cause the girlfriend just woke up :D. Just thought I'd let you guys know, clear everything up to Naga, you can walk past most if not all of them. Clear bosses, and jump down at end to exit instance. Super super easy.
Sharing some numbers from my farming as an 80 priest.
Best strategy for me was to clear and collect up to the "Naga patrol bridge", but skip all giants and the boss. The giants occasionally drop but the rate is low and they take far longer to kill than the others. I essentially followed the route on Felicia's nice map up to 13, then dropped off the ledge there and circled back for respawns (Levitate is nice for the water here). Any plant 9 and below has the potential to respawn by the time you're on your way out.
Your time will vary depending on your gear, AoE abilities, and damage avoidance/healing skills. Your numbers should be similar to mine though - totals of
, 17, 21,
, and 22
per run. The bolded numbers were my first runs of the day - not sure if it's a coincidence or not that these were significantly higher than the others. My one run that included the giants only gave me one drop from them and was several minutes longer.
You'll have to compare this to other methods on your own; I only tried the non-clearing method once each so the data on it isn't reliable. I never bothered going to the end - with no drops and such a long walk it seems like you'd be better off starting over.
A note on
: if you don't have enough already to buy
whatever you plan on buying
when you hit exalted, I recommend you swing by the
area every time you head out for a UB farming run. If you wait to do them all at once afterwards, you'll probably pick the area clean and get quite frustrated.
A trick with these is to clear the entire instance, then drop down after the black stalker to the start. Then run through again, iy has quite a short spawn time and you will be able to pick up a few more this way.
I never found more than 35-40... But the guide is really really nice, exalted in 1 night!
By far the best way to get exalted. I killed everything in Regular Underbog except for the Naga and the most i have gotten is 41. Run out, sell the junk to the nearby vendor and reset. Took me about 200-220 to get from honored to exalted. Only took about 2-3 hours. And the gold from all the vendor trash greens and blues is really nice too. So loot everything.
Happy Farming. :)
Also, if you have alot of gold, and cba to spend all the time doing Underbog that much, just buy Fertile Spores or Sanguine Hibiscus from the auction house. If there are any there at all x)
30 Sanguine Hibiscus per run, in UnderBog no Nagaz were harmed during the acquisition or this reputation.
I was just picking up one of these in UB and another one spawned rite on the last spot i picked up one, then picked up that one and another one spawned on another spot, then i picked up that one and i saw it re spawn in front of me o.o.
They may poop up after another one is looted but it may be just me.
As a ret pally i solo this place in barely more than 10 mins, then i keep looping the place and picking up more and more at a rate of 6-7 per loop, this may prove the above theory.
A note for (probably at least level 80) druids who intend to skip the naga area: You don't actually have to fight the guards with stealth detect if you're trying to save time. Select one of the two naga that patrol in the room behind them and feral charge while stealthed. You'll jump right past without alerting them. Most of the time, anyway.
Heroic Underbog is pretty trivial to clear as a level 85 demonology lock in ilevel 345 gear on heroic. Just putting that out there if anyone is looking to get this rep up post-Cata.
I'm getting a bunch of Sanguine Hibiscuses from mobs, and some greens/enchanting mats (I'm a d/e) and motes and cloth to sell.
Another two things to note: You don't need to be a herbalist to "pick" the ones that spawn on the ground, and, after you pick them they can and DO respawn. So make some rounds of the area before the first boss; I picked up 10+ from spawns and respawns, in addition to the ones I got off bodies.
With Guild Perk, you get 825 rep per turnin.

I'm in the middle of my 3rd run of the Underbog (normal) and have gathered 85 Sanguine Hibiscus by now.
Skip the Naga part in the middle (though the Hydra boss DOES drop one, so kill it) and you'll have them in no time.
This is not fast rep for an 85 or an 185 for that matter. Sure one is equivalent to about 100 rep or more but the running is too much. I calculate it's equivalent to doing about 10 rep for each mob, if the mobs were easily grindable.
One thing I've found is after you clear the dungeon, go back and check the first area again. I've always found at least 2 and usually 3 respawns.
Okay, i have made some tries as a 85 hunter, collecting pets, therefor i farmed this in order to get exalted with sporregar.
So, as a MM hunter, i did all mobs inclusive first boss. Then went back and reseted the instance. I took me a whole of 6 min, with Aspect of the cheetar on most of the time, and i got about 20 in each run.
Since the quest, "Now that we're still friends" took me about 2 min to take the way over there, kill the mobs, get back and turn in. i think this is the fastest way to farm the rep. Since you can complete the quest 4 times in 6 min, and the "now that we're still friends" quest only could be completed 3 times in 6 min, you spare a little bit of time. But ofc, the instance cap of 5 in an hour, make it impossible to full day farm it, so i took all the runs i could, then went out and took the quest, untill ca. 50 min later, where i started running the instance again... that way it dont become to hard to overcome, atleast not for me.
Best thing about this grind is you can do it on ANY character you have because Sanguine Hibiscus is not soulbound, you can even do it for another player and charge a fee.
I do this on my 85 Deathknight who also has mining and skinning.
For my 2 cents don't bother going up the ramp, just farm the ground floor.
Gather the mobs into big groups, AoE them down and loot/skin/herb/mine everything.
You will generally pick 10 Hibiscus and loot another 10 just in this area.
Run out and reset, vendor your trash at the NPC then re-enter.
When you hit the 5 intances in an hour cap log out and do something else to stop brain-freeze.
Knothide Leather sells for anywhere between 50 and 200 gold a stack nowadays and I've unloaded Adamantite Bars for 500 gold a stack more than once.
Not only will you get the Tsar of Sporeggar title you can also be as rich as a Tsar as well.
(<sigh> I should have been a goblin.)
I made a map of the spawn locations of the Sanguine Hibiscus in Underbog.
I get between 30-35 Hibiscus per full clear of the instance, including respawns.
Having just ran The Underbog on both normal and heroic, it seems that there is no difference in the drop rate between difficulty levels. If anything, sanguine hibiscus dropped more on normal mode.
So unless you're grinding Cenarion Expedition rep (all Heroic Coilfang instances grant you CE rep for every mob killed) then there's really no point in doing the Heroic version.
They respawn at all over the dungeon after you clear all. New ones can spawn at the places you didn't loot before. It worths to run the empty dungeon again while you cleared it already. Atleast I got more than 10 from respawned
With the increased rep from Mr. Popularity, the repeatable quest will give you 825 rep with Sporeggar.
So, with that in mind, to get to exalted from honored it would be:
33000(Honored+Revered)/825 = 40 Turn in's.
40x5(per turn in) = 200 Sanguine Hibiscus needed to get to exalted.
In two full clears (the first time I didn't loot from most of the mobs, but that also includes me double checking the beginning of the instance for extra spawns), I got about 65 of the plants. So I imagine it would take about 6 or 7 full clears to achieve. Not too bad, in my opinion.
For anyone who's collecting anything for a faction, I can only recommend an addon called "Faction Friend". When you have your chosen faction showing "as xp bar", the addon shows a lighter colour (a bit like 'rested' with experience) after the already collected reputation to show how much reputation you'll have once you've returned your completed quests or returned all your turn-in collectables, i.e. Sanguine Hibiscus or Glow Cap.
Of course the addon also takes into account reputation gained from kills, like with Kurenai. So basically, you can just collect or kill or whatever it is you're doing, without counting or running back to the quest giver and so forth.
I'm currently running Underbog up and down, and I'm glad I dont have to wonder how much I still need. I just have to look at the bar.
best farmed at 85 from the underbog, clear all trash up to the first boss and get the special herb nodes for them. avg 20 per clear, 5 clears an hour =100 per hour roughly
ps. takes about 260 to get exalted from friendly with sporemen.
pps. when your locked out of the underbog from the too many instances entered,
will help you grind rep while you wait. gl and happy farming

No longer available, I am currently 13100 Revered, and "More Shrubbery" quest for this turn in is not available to me anymore, even though I was able to do so before the latest patch, but new quests are available. I do not yet know how far you can turn these in, it might just be up to revered now. I will update when i get another character up to this point.
There are still a number of rep guides that direct you to the quest
, obtained from the quest giver
in Zangamarsh. You can no longer obtain either the original or repeatable quest from this NPC.
However, Sanguine Hibiscus can still be turned in to obtain Sporeggar rep. The original quests have effectively been transferred to a different quest giver.
(the new version of the original quest) from
in the entrance to
, the repeatable quest
can be obtained . You can keep handing in Sanguine Hibiscus all the way to exalted rep.
I'd hate to see people getting rid of their Sanguine Hibiscus, only to realise later that they could have used it to get rep all along.
I managed to acquire 23 Sanguine Hibiscus in 1 full Underbog clear.
20x from the actual flower
1x from Hungarfen
1x from Ghaz'an
1x from The Black Stalker
At level 85, I am gaining 21 rep per mob and 210 rep per boss killed in NORMAL Underbog (heroic yielded none), currently at revered. And as I was typing this, I found that the rep stops at 20999/2100 - you will still need 10 hibiscus if you want to make it to 999 exalted.
This has made the rep grind trivial, and I finished it in a matter of about 1.25 hours from friendly. I used low level characters in the area/instance as patsies (FFA loot + these guys saved a TON of time) for looting gathering while I tankadin'ed my way through the instance. They give me hibiscus, I give them XP!
3192 rep per run from mob kills
30 hibiscus per run = 4500 rep
36,000 rep from neutral
GG Blizzard, GG.
The Quickest way that I've found to gain rep is to do Underbog on Normal. Kill everything and loot everything up to the first boss and collect Sanguine Hibiscus'. Then Reset the instance. I get about 30 in less than 10 mins. Way easier than clearing the whole instance.
-This item can be found in Underbog, either dropped off mobs or you can find it on the ground. When on the ground you will see a red haze if you will around it highlighting it to make it easier to see. If you have an herbing profession you will be able to see these on your mini-map.
-If you are looking for this item chances are your repping for Sporeggar. In this dungeon with a level 25 guild that has all perks, I received 49/50 rep points for Sporeggar, and 16/17 rep points for Cenarion Expedition in this dungeon for every kill of a regular mob. This was on heroic mode.
-During the course of this dungeon I received 30 Sanguine Hibiscus by turning in the quest "Bring Me Another Shrubbery!" which takes 5 at a time you will receive 825 rep points toward Sporeggar.
-This is about the 3rd time I've repped with Sporeggar and it seems as though it is easier, I am going to finish this in one day by farming regular Underbog collecting Sanguine Hibiscus and turning them in. It seemed like to me that the drop rate for the shrub is higher now which would make for easier repping.
As of 1/19/2013, I ran underbog heroic mode, got 40 hibiscus, and about 8000 rep. I slayed everything in there though, took about 20 minutes. 88 ret pally 404 gear level...
not quite sure exactly how much rep i got, but started of close to revered, and am now at 7500. was getting 49-50 rep per trash kill, and 825 per boss.
Really easy, what I did was pretty much pull everything up to the next boss, cake walk!
By running The Underbog you get 25-35 of these when you loot all mobs and collect all flowers.
Inside UB - as an herbalist - I was able to see every Sanguine Hibiscus location (they re-spawn very quickly in some cases; I highly recommend giving the whole instance a once over after you clear and before you leave for the day), and I also "skinned" many of the bog monsters (this also worked with mobs in SV), yielding a total of 9 Unidentified Plant Parts and 40 Sanguine Hibiscus!
It should also be noted that when you turn them in for rep with Sporeggar, the Sanguine Hibiscus now award 825 rep/5. With the guild perk on rep from killing mobs and bosses in UB, it would be very easy to go from neutral to almost max exalted in one UB run.
coming out I'm finally playing catch up on a lot of this BC stuff. I've been reading a lot of you are only clearing so far or skipping the bosses. With being in a lvl 25 guild and running this on heroic, I am getting 50 per trash mob and 850 per boss. As a 90 prot pally everything is killable in 2 hits, bosses 4. I have gotten probably 75% thru honored with this one run alone. I just finished killing
with maybe a bar left to revered. That doesn't include the 22 Sanguine Hibiscus in my bags yet to turn in.
So if you're trying to get your rep up with
, I suggest just full runs on heroic and kill everything in sight!
ETA: Ended up 4680 into Revered after turning in 5 stacks of the hibiscus for rep and downing the last boss. One more run I should have this in the bag :)
There seems to be a limited spawn bug with
. I ran the instance three times in both normal and heroic and in each run, by the time I had killed
(next to last boss), 3 to 5
had spawned to the first part of the map, where none had been before. A similar bug plagues the (WoD) garrison mine micro-zone with ore nodes spawning after you've worked the mine in 6.1.2.
Neutral to Exalted in 40 minutes!
Tested in WoD patch 6.2.4.
Works from atleast Neutral all the way up to Exalted with
i got 750 rep for each
turn in on my lvl 100 horde druid.
Easiest way to do this is to farm
Enter The Underbog on Normal.
Pick up all the
and kill + loot all the mobs, up past Hungarfen until you see the first
, this is where you
run out of the instance and reset it
Each run took around
, and i got:
First run: 20 x
Second run: 29 x
Third run: 29 x
Rep from mob kills:
: ~1260 rep (21 rep from normal mobs and 210 rep from Hungarfen)
: ~420 rep (7 rep from normal mobs and 70 rep from Hungarfen)
If you want to buy the
from AH you will need:
Neutral to Friendly: 4 quest hand ins = 20 x
Friendly to Honored: 8 quest hand ins = 40 x
Honored to Revered: 16 quest hand ins = 80 x
Revered to Exalted: 28 quest hand ins = 140 x
From Neutral to Exalted: 56
hand ins = 280 x
if you buy them from AH.
If you get around 23
per run + 1260 rep from killing mobs, you need around
8-9 Underbog runs
and around 40 mins of your time!
Hope this was of any help, good luck! :)
I was able to get roughly 40 of these per run, which translates to about 6000 rep depending on your perks.
DON'T FORGET TO LOOT THE MOBS. The sporebats etc. have around a 75% drop rate in my experience.
Also, once you've finished the instance (by jumping through the opening right to the beginning of it), run around that first area again because the hibiscus (hibisci?) on the ground will likely have respawned by then.
