Drops from Scritch (rare elite in Kun-Lai).
Impressive item, does exactly what it describes.
Gives 1000 rep with all the new pandaren factions other than the Black Prince
It is affected by +rep gains (human, guilded), doesn't get affected by battle standard, (but then, why would it).
It is consumed on use, and continues to give the full amount of reputation all the way to exalted.
This item is not bound when picked up, so as others have suggested, expect plenty of people camping his spawn.
The item now has a 7 day cooldown before you can use another.

, that's the rule.
This item does
add rep with <
>. You will have to grind out rep for
the old fashioned way. =P
Idk if it's just me, but i've killed this guy twice and he hasn't dropped it, I think they might have removed it. >_>
Reputations affected (taken from the effects list on
Killed him and got the drop along with a green bag and some blue vendor trash.
Put the pipe on the Auction House for 30k as a "meh" to see if anyone would bite. sold in 2 hours. Another is on the AH for 100k. So either someone trying to flip it or 2 dropped in 24 hours. I would certainly hold on to them until we find out what the fair market value is. Apparently, 1000 rep across every faction is heavily desire and monetarily profitable.
Killed today at 5:50am. Went back 4 hours later and spawned at 10:10am. ~4 hour respawn timer it seems.
EDIT: My other additions were either removed or rolled back. Either way here is the timetable I have and he's been following a 3-4~ spawn timer pretty reliably.
One uncataloged kill 1/1 pipe
5:50am 9/27/12 1/2 no pipe
10:15am 9/27/12 1/3 no pipe
--- missed one spawn ---
5:29pm 9/27/12 1/4 no pipe
9:11pm 9/27/12 xxx Seen dead - I didn't kill it, but my macros went off and I saw him there dead.
12:37am 9/28/12 2/5 PIPE!
I make it a habit of being available at around the 3 hour mark in the event he does spawn. This is starting to become camped but most people don't know the spawn times I'm guessing because they usually peace out after a few minutes.
I can confirm that Scritch does spawn in as little time as

The pipe only awarded 110 rep with the Shado-Pan, Klaxxi, Golden Lotus and August Celestials.
It granted 1100 rep for the Order of the Cloud Serpent, The Tillers and The Anglers.
For me, anyway. Can someone else please confirm this?
Edit: The Hozen Peace Pipe now has a seven day cooldown. Turns out it was toned back to 100 rep, but is 1000 for all factions again. Source:
. Thanks for sakpoth for pointing that out. I'll update this when I get the pipe again, if anyone gets it before me please confirm that it now gives 1000 rep with a 7 day cooldown.
Patch 5.0.5 Hotfixes - October 1
The Hozen Peace Pipe now only grants 100 reputation for Shado-Pan, Klaxxi, Golden Lotus, and the August Celestials. This item will continue to grant 1000 reputation for other Pandaren factions.
The Hozen Peace Pipe now has a seven day cooldown.
Pretty dumb to put a 7 day cooldown on it. Now it's effectively useless. If you get one cool I guess, but you can't really benefit much from farming it because of the cooldown now. You'd be better off just farming rep the normal way. I guess if you REALLY wanted to, you could still farm it, but you'd be gaining rep a lot slower since you can only use it every 7 days.
Decided to use mine after the 7 day cooldown nerf. I can confirm that this item now works properly. I was 1100 Rep away from honored with the Shado-Pan and gained 1100 reputation with them due to the guild perk, Mr. Popularity.
I was watching a livestream on twitch where the broadcaster was asking his viewers to invite him to group so that he could check if Scritch was up on their server - he ended up getting 12 in 1 hour.
With this new cooldown there should be less people farming it
So killing numerous Sha, Mogu and Mantid gives me a hundred or so rep with one faction at a time, but killing one monkey and stealing his tobacco makes everyone really like me?
Cooldown increased to 7 days.
Can I buy this item, use it, and then resell it?
The other day I had finished up my Golden Lotus dailies, only to be a mere 200 rep away from Honored, so I hit the web to find any quest or way to get that 200 rep and stumble upon this lovely item.
It was about 1am CST, but sure enough, as soon as I flew to where Scritch would be, NPC_Scan let me know I had found him.
As a warlock, it was pretty much a joke as my Void Walker was able to tank him no problems, and even dropped the pipe on my first kill. With my human racial and guild perk, I netted a cool 1200 rep for all factions! Pretty sweet!
Planning on farming this up for some extra gold assuming it says BoE!
i have looted 2 of these today within a 4hr period, i used one and sold the other to a friend, when used it gave 1.1k rep for ALL the pandaren factions
Can I buy plenty of this and use it? Or do they share cd?
smoking is bad m'kay
This is NOT a multiple use item! You can only use it once, Don't be seduced by the fact it's going over 40k gold on some servers, I mean, Considering it has 7 days cooldown, It almost would seem like it would be a multiple use item, But It isn't ... So be aware, Before spending your money on this, It's a one time use item ... (Which in my eyes is in no way worth over 40k gold...thats not even one day of dailies for the specific faction.. And it in no way would be faster then doing all the dailies for all the factions up to 1k a faction (most is 3dailies) ... If you get this item, SELL IT!
Pretty sure the reason these sell for so much is because of the way Shado Pan rep/VP gear is set up... you get stuck about 500 shy of Honored until you reach Revered with GL... So this thing is pretty desirable atm.
does this item work for the shadow-pan rep as well does anyone know. cause they have some pretty nice gear for jp points at honored
It says 7 day cool down, but has a 20 next to it...so does that mean...u can only use 20 times?
14 Scritch kills, no pipes.
This DOES stack with the
. (From Hallow's end) AND
Guild Rep Buff
. Gave me 1200 rep when i used it today. (I am NOT a human)
HELPFUL HOLIDAY TIP:
with reputation buffs such as
holiday rep buffs such as
from Hallows End and
from Pilgrims' Bounty.
forget to use these during Hallow's End and Pilgrims' Bounty as that is an extra 10% added to your rep gain.
Just used this today in a level 25 guild (Horde) and had the holiday buff up...
Received 1200 reputation.
what happens if i use the item and trade it to another player? will he be able to use it right away?
anyone can answer this please?
...PASS THE PIPE? :D
can anyone confirm if this does splash rep?
for example, say i'm 999/1000 capped with shado-pan, would the 100 that originally would have gone there be divided to the others?
The reputation gained from
doubled by the new (5.1) Grand Commendations (e.g.
I can confirm that as of patch 5.1, the rep gained from this IS affected by the new commendations that give 100% more rep. So if you have revered or greater on one of your toons and obtain the commendations then your alts will receive 2k rep per faction that you have gotten the commendation for, 2.2k with 10% guild perk, and 2.4k with 10%guild perk/human racial.
The Hozen Peace Pipe does
work with the new Operation: Shieldwall or Dominance Offensive reps!
Don't learn this the hard way like I did!
Patch 5.2 update:
work with the Kirin Tor Offensive, Sunreaver Onslaught, or Shado-Pan Assault reps!
This item does NOT give rep with Dominance offensive
How much can I sell this for to a player?
Reputation with Shado-Pan increased by 1200.
Reputation with The Klaxxi increased by 1200.
Reputation with Golden Lotus increased by 1200.
Reputation with The August Celestials increased by 1200.
Reputation with The Anglers increased by 1200.
Reputation with Order of the Cloud Serpent increased by 1200.
Reputation with The Tillers increased by 1200.
Reputation with The Lorewalkers increased by 1200.
This is with Human Racial and a 25 guild - see screen shot for verification.
"Increases reputation with the
of Pandaria by 1000." the Landfall factions are not denizens of Pandaria.
If you use this on a lvl85 toon who just set foot in Pandaria, will it give the rep to all the factions, even if the toon has yet to encounter the various factions?
unfortunately this does not apply to the tushui pandaren or operation: shieldwall (and their horde counter parts) so if you get this pipe and your exalted with all the original factions already DON"T USE IT (i learned this the hardway
I don`t know if someone already said it but it give +100% rep. for the fractions you have already revered and bought the Grand Commendation.
no way its 10% drop chance, ive killed him over 80x without it dropping even once, that drop rate isnt right >.<
Now going for 4,350 on Skywall
Using Battle Standard of Coordination or similar will not increase your rep gain (decided to test this because the standards do boost your honor gain upon winning TB/Wintergrasp and upon using the commendations dropped by the horde/alliance rare mobs in Krasarang). Human racial will boost the rep gain and it also stacks with the 100%-to-rep commendations you can buy once revered, so this can provide your alts with some sweet rep boosts.
Using the pipe will also add reputation to factions that you haven't encountered yet. Tested this with the Lorewalkers on an alt today.
Hozen Peace Pipe
a multiple use item, so it will disappear from your bag once you used it. It also got
7 days cooldown
If you are
with any of this factions below:
(these are also the factions the
Hozen Peace Pipe
will give reputation with)
The August Celestials
Order of the Cloud Serpent
You can buy an Item with each faction that will give you
more reputation with that faction (example of this is the
Grand Commendation of the Lorewalkers
). This items are
, and also stacks with reputation buffs such as
and holiday rep buffs such as
The Spirit of Sharing
from Pilgrims' Bounty, or
Darkmoon Top Hat
from The Darkmoon Island.
This means that if you use a
Hozen Peace Pipe
with for example:
you will receive (1000 + 100)
and one of the
Grand Commendation of the Lorewalkers
you will receive (1000x2 + 100x2)
Grand Commendation of the Lorewalkers
The Spirit of Sharing
you will receive (1000x2 + 100x2 + 100x2)
Please not that the
Hozen Peace Pipe
do not give you reputation with factions such as
The Black Prince
Kirin Tor Offensive
does this affect the sunreaver onslaught and shado-pan offensive now?
Do note that this item stacks with reputation gain increasers. I just used it with the Darkmoon Faire reputation incraease (10%) to gain +1200 for each rep, and +2400 for each rep where I had the Revered commendation. I did not think to try it with the guild banner that also increases rep gained, so that would be a good experiment for people to try.
And this is well known by now, but it is definitely important to say that the item
As other people have probably said this is NOT a multiple use it is once ONLY. And please guys now that its 5.2 we dont need to be buying these off of the AH for 9k and it does NOT give rep to black prince and the cooldownis 7 days so its isnt useful to farm this just do the rep quests. But if you guys are like me and have new 90's then using this would be helpful a little bit and get you up there for rep gear. But anyways if your are going to farm this Good luck and happy farming!
Doesnt work for the "operation: shieldwall" faction which was the only reason i bought it..bit annoyed at that.
How can it say "7 day cool-down" and be a single use item? This isn't right. I was scammed and I want a refund too!
My advice to people who get this item is simple: sell it.
The Hozen Peace Pipe is one of those few things you see every expansion (outside raw materials) that has great current value in the market, but virtually none in the future. Also, 1k reputation for each faction each week isn't as much as it seems. You can clear that much in 4-5 dailies during one day in a week. Thus, the item isn't even that good -- helpful, yes, but not as helpful as its present value.
Right now, I can sell the Peace Pipe (and have) for 4-4.5k a shot on a well-populated server. If you get even one Pipe drop every other day, you're going to be raking in some pretty serious cash that would otherwise have to come via farming and crafting.
And if you want the thing? Wait until the expansion ends. Because nobody is going to want it then. You'll probably be able to net one for a couple hundred gold.
3 Kills and I got it, even though this drop rate seems high, it's not. As I said 3 kills and I got it, but after another 12 it hasn't dropped again. I feel as if the drop rate is a little too high. But, it's a great item whether you use it or just sell it, totally worth the work.
Oh the irony caused by obtaining this item...
How to get the Hozen Peace Pipe ? Kill the Hozen that drops it.
Some call us heroes. Little do they know. Never try to make peace if you're attackable and drop cool stuff.
Using this item will add all yet not listed factions with which it increases reputation to your reputation info frame before increasing the rep there. So you can use this to 'discover' the other factions to set your 'gain rep here' star for dungeons etc.. Also you
have to visit a member of each faction first to safely use this item with 100% of it's effect.
As others have stated already: Only Pandaren factions (excluding 2nd Shado Pan faction on Isle of Thunder), the Klaxxi and Anglers are affected by the rep gain of this item and rep increasing effects work.
Question that may have been answered-
Do you have to have the faction showing in your Character pane reputation bars, in order to get the bonus rep? Like if I haven't met any of the Golden Lotus NPCs yet (hypothetically), will it give me +1000 rep to them and add them to my rep bars?
try to think of it working like a healing pot with a very long cool down....1 use only on the item but u can pop it again when the the cool down is finished IF U HAVE ANOTHER POT
Does NOT i repeat... DOES NOT WORK TOWARDS EMPEROR SHAOHAO!
Just thought its worth mentioning ^^
If used in Draenor, will grant 1200 rep with all Pandaria factions that it normally affects assuming that you have a rank 3 trading post.
You Hozen? Ya I'm Hozen you want some?
(everyone likes you when your Hozen)
Has anybody else noticed whether having a character for farming it above 90 affects the drop rate or not? I swear, when my mage was 90, they dropped left and right, my mage is 92 right now, and it barely ever drops. Originally, my toon I was going to use to farm with was a lvl 100, and it almost never dropped, so I switched to my lvl 90 mage and bamm, dropped more. I am just wondering if it is just me or if anyone else has noticed this trend?
Sell for 32k on Silvermoon EU lol
It's amazing to me that 6yrs later that the pipe is still going for 40000g *SMH*
Finally dropped! I can confirm that the Hozen Peace Pipe is still in the game.....after about 15 Scritch kills it dropped.
Confirmed it still drops as of 9/19/2019.
Haha I killed the guy not knowing what he would drop and got this, very nice surprise
