I have been working at Kurenai and Consortium Rep simultaneously on and off for some time.
What I have been doing is grinding the ogres in Nagrand. They give Kurnai rep and drop Obsidian Warbeads. You can hand in the warbeads for consortium or Kurenai rep. I am getting them for consortium rep.
Currently both reps are around 17K into exalted. I am now going to finish off the last strands of Consortium quests, maybe grab a mana tombs heroic, and then hand in a few warbeads.
And, here we go...
