The Enlightened Reputation Contract
If you wish to focus on gaining extra reputation with The Enlightened you can buy a Contract: The Enlightened from the Auction House. These can be crafted with Inscription and the technique is purchasable when you are Revered with The Enlightened.
Time to reach Revered and Exalted with The Enlightened
If you do all 3 daily quests per day, complete both Patterns Within Patterns quests each week, complete the Campaign, and kill the World Boss each week, it will take you 32 days to become Revered, and 73 days to become Exalted.
However, killing some of the rares in Zereth Mortis every day will drastically lower this time period. For example, if you kill 10 rares per day and 1 rare from the Endless Sands area per day in addition the above, you can expect to be Revered after 27 days, and Exalted after 60 days.
If you kill more Rare mobs per day, kill bosses in Sepulcher of the First Ones, and/or use Contract: The Enlightened you can expect to hit Revered and Exalted sooner yet.
The Enlightened Quatermaster Location
The quartermaster for The Enlightened is Vilo, who can be found in Haven in Zereth Mortis; Coordinates 34,64.
