Everything you need to know to start and finish your Insane in the Membrane reputation grind.
Insane in the Membrane requires you to earn the following reputations:
- Honored with Bloodsail Buccaneers
- Exalted with Booty Bay
- Exalted with Everlook
- Exalted with Gadgetzan
- Exalted with Ratchet
- Exalted with Darkmoon Faire
- Exalted with Ravenholdt
Once earned, you do not need to keep the reputation (unless you earned it and lost it prior to April 14, 2014). This is important because Bloodsail Buccaneers reputation interacts with the four Steamwheedle Cartel goblin town reputations; most actions taken to gain reputation with Booty Bay will lose reputation with Bloodsail Buccaneers, and every action taken to gain reputation with Bloodsail Buccaneers will lose Booty Bay reputation.
Thus it is important to do these in a particular sequence: No matter how much reputation you have when you start, you should always complete Bloodsail Buccaneers before the four goblin towns. If you don’t, then you will end up having to do the goblin towns twice.
Darkmoon Faire and Ravenholdt are independent, and you can work on these at any time without regard for the progress of other reputations.
You don’t have to keep your reputations once earned, but if you want to do so, you can. In this case, before starting the Bloodsail Buccaneers grind, you should complete all Booty Bay quests which cause reputation loss with Bloodsail Buccaneers. A complete list of these quests is available in the Booty Bay guide.
