Rep Grinds  for OutLand/Shattrath *Long Post*
« on: January 30, 2007, 06:56:14 AM »
[size=10]Outland[/size]



Honor Hold

Honor Hold is the primary Alliance town on Hellfire Peninsula. A refuge of human, elven and dwarven explorers, Honor Hold is the first major town explorers will encounter while traversing Outland. The town holds a flight path, inn and a variety of profession trainers and vendors. Vestiges of the Sons of Lothar, veterans of the Alliance that first came into Draenor, have steadfastly held on to this Hellfire outpost. They are now joined by the armies from Stormwind and Ironforge.


Reputation

Honor Hold reputation is gained through various means in Hellfire Peninsula. Mobs and bosses in Hellfire Citadel in addition to quests in town reward Honor Hold reputation.

Neutral through Friendly

Reputation from mobs in Hellfire Ramparts and Blood Furnace stops at 5999/6000 Friendly. It is recommended that you grind mob rep via Ramparts and Blood Furnance to 5999/6000.
Then do all available quests.  


Halfway through Honored


Players who enjoy PvP can gain faction halfway through Honored via the repeatable quest Hellfire Fortifications. This quest also rewards the player with Marks of Honor Hold, which can be used to buy PvP gear from the quartermasters in Honor Hold and near Telredor in Zangarmarsh. At 6000/12000 Honored, this quest's rewards are greatly reduced: XP drops from 6600 to 1650, cash from 90  to 23  and reputation from 250 to 10.


Exalted

From this point on, gaining reputation through Exalted requires access to Shattered Halls, which requires level 68 and a key quest.


Due to the ease at which a player in their early 60's can gain up to the honored "barrier", there is effectively created a dead zone where players are likely to not gain any Honor Hold reputation while leveling in Outland. Players might find it advantageous to move on to other dungeons while leveling, as there is likely to be other desirable items to be gained with less time invested.

Cenarion Expedition

An exploratory force sent to Outland by the Cenarion Circle to study surviving life forms, the Cenarion Expedition has quickly increased in size and autonomy since the opening of the Dark Portal.

The expedition is a sub-faction of the Cenarion Circle based out of the Cenarion Refuge in Zangarmarsh, which has become mostly autonomous from the main organization.

Reputation

Mobs
•      Wrekt Slave, Dreghood Drudge: 2.5 up to Honoured
•      Bloodscale Overseer, Bloodscale Wavecaller, Darkcrest Sorceress, Darkcrest Slaver: 1-5 up to Friendly
•      Creature List
•      A Few mobs at the start of the underbog, give reputation until revered

Strategy

Friendly to Honored

•Most Naga and their slaves in the area provide reputation up to friendly (not all naga give the same rep).

Also, Lauranna Thar'well offers a repeatable quest that garners 250 reputation for turning in 10 Unidentified Plant Parts, but this only works up to Honoured. These plants can be found on herbs picked and from mobs killed anywhere in Zangarmarsh.

•Plants of Zangarmarsh (requires 10 Unidentified Plant Parts, repeatable until honored): 250 rep

•Dreghood Drudge (which are the best solo reputation and avg. at 2.5) provide reputation up to honoured,

Honored to Revered

Neither trash mobs nor bosses in The Slave Pens give any reputation once you hit honored.

The Underbog trash mobs (Avg. 7 rep ea, only at the start of the instance) provide reputation up to Revered.

Strangely enough the bosses or other trash does not appear to award rep at honored.

Revered to Exalted

If you plan on running to exalted, save your quests dealing with the Cenarion Expedition in Zangarmarsh and Hellfire Peninsula until after reaching Honored. The Cenarion Expedition also has a presence in Blade's Edge Mountains at Ruuan Weald that can give further reputation.

However, one has to reach higher levels to make the final jump to Exalted. The Steamvault appears to be the main source of reputation at this point, bosses there grant 120 reputation per kill. It has not been verified if Slave Pens and Underbog on heroic difficulty will reward reputation up to Exalted.


There is a Repeatable Quest from the Steam vault. A letter drops (Orders from Lady Vashj) which starts a quest that wants you to return it to Ysiel Windsinger. He then asks you to find some Coilfang Armaments which are random loot off Naga in the Steam Vaults. The first turn in gives you 250 rep, 75 rep per turn in thereafter. These are not BoP and can be sold on auction or traded.

Sporeggar

Sporeggar is a town found along the western edge of Zangarmarsh, populated by the Sporelings. The Sporelings are a mostly peaceful race of mushroom-men native to Outland. Players start out Unfriendly with Sporeggar, but can gain reputation quickly.

Reputation

The best way, when leveling, is to kill Bog Giants of one variety or another, a mob that bears the feature of being able to herb its corpse as skinners skin beasts. That nets you 15 Rep apiece. There is also rep from mobs within the Slave Pens in the Coilfang Reservoir.



Unfriendly through Neutral

Kill Bog Giants. Collect Bog Lord Tendrils, which drop off the bog lords to be given to Fahssn at 19, 63 (east of the spawning glen in southwestern Zangarmarsh) for 750 reputation per 6 items.

Fahssn has two quests:

The Sporelings' Plight

Mature Spore Sacs

Natural Enemies

Bog Lord Tendrils

Both these quests are repeatable until you reach Friendly status.


Neutral through Friendly
Kill Bog Giants. Collect Glowcap or Fertile Spores for reputation. Glowcap can be found on the ground around Serpent's Lake, Marshlight Lake, and the Hewn Bog while Fertile Spores drop off of a good number of mobs in the marsh, typically fen striders or spore bats. However, Glowcap is also used to purchase items from the faction's reputation-based vendor. Glowcap quest is no longer available after you hit friendly.

[63] The Sporelings' Plight  [64] Natural Enemies

Friendly to Honored

The following quests available from Gzhun'tt give 750 reputation each:

Bring Me A Shrubbery!              

Now That We're Friends...

Furthermore, the Fertile Spores turnin still works.


Honored to Revered

The following quests available from Gzhun'tt give 750 reputation each:

Bring Me A Shrubbery!

Now That We're Friends...

The following quests take place in Coilfang Reservoir and give 1050 rep each:

Oh, It's On!

Stalk the Stalker

Furthermore, the Fertile Spores turnin still works.

Revered to Exalted

Now That We're Friends...

Bring Me A Shrubbery!

Furthermore, More Fertile Spores turn-in still works.

Kurenai

Draenei for "redeemed." These Broken draenei have escaped the grasp of their various slavers in Outland and have made their home in Nagrand, at Telaar. It is there that they seek to rediscover their destiny. They also maintain a small prescence at Orebor Harborage, Zangarmarsh.

The Kurenai are a faction of Broken draenei who start out as Unfriendly with the Alliance, and will always be Hostile to the Horde. They have a Talbuk mount as a reputation reward.
Kurenai is also Japanese for "crimson".

Reputation


There is a repeatable quest for Alliance in Telaar to hand in Obsidian Warbeads x10 that drop off the ogres in Nagrand for 500 rep. Also, most humanoid trash mobs in Nagrand give 10 rep when killed, all the way to exalted, making this a somewhat easy faction to rep grind.

Ashtongue Deathsworn

The Ashtongue Deathsworn are Broken Draenei under the command of the elder sage Akama. Akama, believed to be a servitor of the Betrayer, Illidan Stormrage, may not be as loyal to the Lord of Outland as originally thought...

Overview

Upon talking to Akama, players become neutral with the Ashtongue Deathsworn.

Reputation

Reputation you get in Shadowmoon Valley after completing the quest Akama's Promise. Akama's Promise is currently broke, as it is intended to be the reward at the end of a large cycle. The chain starts for those with Scryers reputation after obtaining tablets from a nearby camp.

Eventually the chain will lead to the Warden's Cage, where quests will be given for Ashtongue Deathsworn reputation. So far no know rewards or RRQs.

Quests

Akama's Promise

Theres also another quest where you go to Shattrath City to deliver Akama's message that he repents his deeds to the Naaru.

Netherwing

Overview

This unusual brood of dragons was spawned from the eggs of Deathwing's black dragonflight, and infused with raw nether-energies. Now, they seek to find their identity beyond the shadows of their father's destructive heritage.

Reputation

Rewards

The placement of the Netherwing as an apparent faction implies that this will be the faction with which to gain reputation to purchase a Nether Drake mount. There has been nothing confirmed, only sightings of NPCs riding nether drakes in Outland's Shadowmoon Valley.


Quests


There is currently one questline, started by an NPC named Mordenai in Shadowmoon Valley, in the southern part of Netherwing Fields. He can be found by heading east from the Sanctum of the Stars. "Kindness" is beginning of the quest chain.[1] It will eventually lead you to kill Zuluhed, an orc empowered by Illidan, and set free Karynaku, the mate of Neltharaku. Upon finishing the chain you will be rewarded with a reputation of neutral with the Netherwing Faction.

Rewards:

[Netherwing Defender's Shield]

[Claw of the Netherwing Flight]

[Netherwing Protector's Shield]

[Netherwing Sorceror's Charm]

[Netherwing Spiritualist's Charm]


It should be noted that a flying mount is required for this questline.

Shattrath City Rep[/size]


The Sha'tar

The Sha'tar ('born from light') are the group of of naaru that helped the Aldor, the order of draenei priests formerly led by Velen, reclaim Shattrath City. Their leader is A'dal, found on the Terrace of Light. The Sha'tar are aided by the Aldor and their rivals, the blood elf faction known as the Scryers. Both factions fight for the favor of the naaru so that they may be assisted in the war by the naaru's powers.

Both Alliance and Horde players start as neutral towards Sha'tar. Players can increase their Sha'tar reputation by adventuring in the Shadow Labyrinth wing of Auchindoun (until 5999 friendly) and in Tempest Keep (until exalted).

Reputation


Reputation with the Sha'tar can be gained by:

Doing quests

Killing mobs in the Shadow Labyrinth (a wing of the Auchindoun Instance). Normal trash mobs give 12 reputation per kill, elite demons give 24 reputation per kill and named bosses are 120 reputation a piece. This goes on until Honored. If you want more reputation with the Sha'tar after this, you will have to go to Tempest Keep. (Reputation for Sha'tar is infact given from doing Tempest Keep Instances (Mechanar/Botanica/Arcatraz) NOT Auchindoun Instances. Auchindoun instances give reputation for Lower City.)

Doing Scryer/Aldor signet/mark turnins. Firewing Signets and Sunfury Signets (and their Aldor equivalents Marks of Kil'jaeden and Marks of Sargeras) give +125 Sha'tar rep in addition to +250 rep with the specific faction. However, the Sha'tar reputation gain stops at 5999/6000 Friendly. (Note this reputation gain does not show up in the combat logs, but can be verified by looking at your reputation panel).

Doing Scryer/Aldor currency turnins. Arcane Tomes (and their Aldor equivalent Fel Armaments) give +175 Sha'tar rep in addition to +350 rep with their faction. Unknown whether this continues past 5999/6000 Friendly with Sha'tar.

The Scryers

The Scryers are a group of blood elves who are currently led by Voren'thal. The group broke away from Prince Kael'thas, and offered to assist the Naaru at Shattrath City. They are at odds with the Aldor, and compete with them for power within Shattrath and the Naaru's favor.

The Scryers have both a Master Enchanter and a Grand Master Enchanter trainer. Due to this, you do not need to go into Uldaman anymore. <GM>Syndri has confirmed that summoning lower-levelled players to the Outland is indeed working as intended:


Blood elf characters automatically begin at Friendly with the Scryers

Quests

To change your faction from Aldor to Scryers, go find Arcanist Adyri, a scryer blood elf in the Lower City. She offer you a repeatable quest called Voren'thal's Visions, that require you to find eight Dampscale Basilisk Eyes. Once you are Friendly with the Scryers you can no longer receive this quest. The quest gives you +250 Scryer rep and -270 Aldor rep (in bonus, the quest also gives you +125 rep with The Sha'tar).  


To improve your reputation further, three repeatable quests: Firewing Signets & Sunfury Signets become available from Scryer's Tier gaining 250 reputation with the Scryers and losing 270 with the Aldor (+25/-27 per Signet), along with Arcane Tomes for 350 reputation and a Arcane Rune per tome (Arcane Runes used to purchase the revered/exalted shoulder enchants).

Tip: Save your Arcane Tomes and Sunfury Signets for when you've turned in Firewing Signet]s until Honored. You can still turn in Arcane Tomes and Sunfury Signets at revered.

Aldor

The Aldor are a Burning Crusade faction, found primarily in Shattrath City and Shadowmoon Valley. They are an ancient order of Draenei priests, once led by the prophet Velen, now led by High Priestess Ishanah. The Aldor are at odds with the Scryers, though both factions are dedicated to assisting the group of Naaru known as the Sha'tar in their fight against the Burning Legion.

Reputation

For help picking between Aldor or Scryers see Comparison of Aldor and Scryer rewards

There is a repeatable quest available in the Lower City to gain reputation with the Aldor, even if the current standing with them is below neutral. You gain 250 reputation with the Aldor, and lose 275 reputation with the Scryers. Once you become neutral with the Aldor you can no longer do the quest.

Turning in 10 Mark of Kil'Jaeden[1] to the NPC Adyen the Lightwarden in the Aldor Rise will grant you 250 reputation with Aldor, and lose 275 with the Scryers. These drop from low ranking Burning Legion members located all over Outland. Good farming locations are the two camps north of Auchindoun in the Bone Wastes of Terrokar Forest. This repeatable quest stops at honored, approx 200 Mark of Kil'Jaeden[2] are needed in order to go from friendly to honored.

Once you've hit 68th level you can also turn in Mark of Sargeras[3] which drop from higher level demons (Approx 68+). Good farming locations can be found all over Blade's Edge Mountains and in Netherstorm.

Turning in Fel Armaments[4] to High Priestess Ishanah inside Shrine of Unending Light also on the Aldor Rise will increase your reputation with Aldor by 350 per hand-in and decrease your reputation with the Scryers. You will also receive Holy Dust, which can be used to purchase Inscriptions (shoulder enchants) in the Aldor bank.


To change your faction from Scryers to Aldor, go find Sha'nir[5], an Aldor in the Lower City. She offers you a repeatable quest More Venom Sacs[6], after completing the initial quest Strained Supplies[7]. Both require you to find 8x Dreadfang Venom Sac[8]. Once you are neutral with the Aldor you can no longer receive this quest.

[size=8]Lower City [/size]

The Lower City of Shattrath is the place where the refugees gather and help out in their own ways. When someone helps any of the mixture of races who fled from war, word gets around quickly. Their quartermaster is located at the market in the Lower City. The Lower City of Shattrath does also contain a very usefull Mana Loom for Tailors, you will be able create items such as Imbued Netherweave Cloth here.

Reputation

You gain Repution in the Instance "Sethekk Halls". Vekax gives the RRQ, "More Feathers", which gives 250(275 as Human) Lower City rep in exchange for 30 Arakkoa Feathers.
Before you start:  

3 of the 4 Auchindoun wings grant reputation for trash and boss kills.

Neutral-Honored

Group- Auchenai Crypts, Sethekk Halls

Arrakoa feather turn in, at lower city.  

Honored-Exalted

Group- Shadow Labyrinth

Guide

There are quests available for Lower City, but no RRQ’s at the moment. Auchenai Crypts earns 8-10 for trash elites and 80 for the 2 bosses, Sethekk Halls grants 9 for trash and 90 for the two bosses; both are quick to complete.

At honored Shadow Labyrinth becomes the primary source of reputation for Lower City, especially since it will take you all the way to exalted, trash is worth 12-24 and bosses are 120.

Quests

Digging Through Bones (250 reputation)

Fumping ( reputation)

The Big Bone Worm (350 reputation)

The Skettis Offensive (500 reputation)

Wow... thanks for all that Nix!

Flamethrowers are proof that somewhere, sometime, someone thought to themselves "You see those people over there? I sure would like to set them on fire, I'm just not close enough to get the job done."
