This evening, I logged on to check my auction house deals, and on a whim decided to see how much a Relic of Ulduar was going for. Much to my delight, the relic was selling for approximately 1g a piece. Little napkin math, I needed 600 relics to finish my trip to exalted with the hodir. Considering I just made 600g by selling stuff on the auction house, I wasn't too worried about spending the gold.
So, 600g, and 180 clicks later, I found I was 600 relics + 5 dailies + 30 more relics short, but now I am exalted and have shiny new shoulder enchants on my t9 shoulders.
Glad to be done.
